After seeing the horribly cheap, soft vinyl they used on the Stormtrooper, it's tough to get overly excited about all white figures in this line.

Did not order Zuckus even though I wanted it, just so I can get this one. I love these things but at the price and how big they are I have no choice, but to be picky.

I agree. For me its not the price but the size. These take up a lot of space so I cant do the entire set but rather pick and choose :)

Oops... missed that was already created... They are big and take up alot of space.. I just choose what is displayed and stow the rest... I like to have some "backstock" so I can switch it up from time to time. Always loved this trooper... wonder if the e-web will follow... just hope they dont mess up his cape.. dont wanna keep buying the fabricky type from that fellow on ebay.

The e-web (or tri-pod laser cannon as it was called back then) would be really cool.

I certainly need to hold back on buying doubles. I couldn't resist doubling up on the first 12 and a few others (Death Star Droid, Gamorrean, Yak Face, Hammerhead, Yoda).

Im all in at this point. Space is always a issue with these im opening all, but the exclusives. Im keeping them sealed. However, it is easy to put these back in their calmshell. Ive done it a acouple times and besides the tape being cut, you cant really tell.

Finally, I want to thank my fellow members here who suggested various outlets where I could purchase this figure from, I ended going with Most Wanted Collectibles, they had a fair price, they packaged it very well and good customer service, so thanks for that again guys.

I have one of these coming to me, but it's interesting that Gentle Giant decided to "edit" the design a bit and remove the seam that runs across the top of the head. This is a welcome change, though, unlike the extra detail added to Bossk's face.

This is one of my favorite figs. Unfortunately I have to be pretty choosy due to the size of these things. I wish the price point was a bit lower but it is what it is.
