Yeah but think of the possiblities, the grimace trooper, the hamburglar arch trooper, and the birdy airborne trooper, all led by jedi mayorMCcheese and his trusty droid ronald mcd2.   Who would they fight..... oooh a 1000 man? army of viscious  fry guys.  The battle for the golden arches has begun. :P

sorry wayne, lazy way of saying the mcquarrie fett without having to type it all. Course now if we could go through the drive thru and pick up some figs, supersize our orders, that would be cool.

One of my post in the "Recent purchases" thread.

Scored a Mc Boba and Mc Stormie, with a side of fried Camo B Droids at my local Target.

I should have said super sized... LOL

Again Boba is a nice figure to have...2 of...

He might have been just a bit pasty, but the bling fit much better and I thought Luke Skywalker in this outfit was a solid choice for the T.A.C. collection.

I like everything but the face. With the previous figures made, why not make a nice sculpt of one of the most well known characters.
I will get two of course, one to open and one to blow up.. I mean keep in it's cage....

I got mine today, I like it, it looks good, but the helmet does pose dificulty coming on and off, and the articulation could be better. Not sure why they didn't use the vintage luke xwing body, here.  For all you customizers out there, the head peg is rather small and is easily removable intact  thus lending itself to be a nice easily customizable xwing pilot body. 8)

I agree with Spice's review. This is not the figure I would have chosen.
Once again though, a very well written review.
Light side, dark side, light side, dark side, light side, dark side. So many choices, so little time.

I agree 100% especially since we're getting another Han in the VTAC line, they could have alteast brought a new Bespin Han to the table! I realize with this character it is hard to do new outfits because he only wears three, but c'mon!

The best ever? What do you think? Was the V.T.A.C.  Bespin Luke the best to date?

I'm really surprised at how much you liked this turd of a figure the new Stormtrooper.

Cheap plastic, an awful removable helmet, legs waaaay to close together and just plain garbage.

The only thing this figure is good for is standing at attention and even then he sucks.  When you try and straighten him out to stand at attention all you see is that hole in his chest where the articulation takes place.

Compare this figure to the Ep III Clone Trooper and itís junk.  The Ep III Clone is ready to kick some @$$.  His leg stance is wider which is great for both standing at attention and combat poses.

As an army builder Iím extremely disappointed with this Stormtrooper.  Iím glad I bought a bunch of the Tantive VI battlepacks for the Stormtroopers from that set.

It's differnt sculptors doing the differnt figures, but you would think once you get a guy/gal that can nail the likeness, they would get that charactors future figures

I betcha Mark Hammil has had some good laughs when he has signed that fig at conventions, like the one he did in Europe and not the daggone country he lives in! I know, off topic, plus I am whining. Maybe I need to start a whining thread. Right on review for that Luke, thought the same things Spice.
