There are 60 unique miniatures in the Bounty Hunters set. Miniatures are pre-painted plastic. All miniatures packages are randomized and made up of figures of varying rarity. Miniatures can be used to play skirmish-level or mass-battle combat scenarios or to add dimension to Star Wars roleplaying games.

Yeah, I'm planning on picking up some boosters when I get out of work today.

Sadly, due to distributor issues CoolStuffInc won't be able to ship the completed sets to those who ordered them (like me) until the middle of October.

I guess if nothing else, picking up some individual boosters will give me a nice collection of Commons and Uncommons.

This is *mostly* on topic (as it deals with the Bounty Hunters Minis), and not important enough to warrant its own thread:
Does anyone think the Bith Black Sun Vigo (sneak peek on WotC site) mini looks, like, totally Matrix-ed out? I'm not criticizing; I think the mini looks really cool, I just think the contrast between super-cool movie action pose and (IMO) sort of goobery Bith head is funny.

When I say the figure, I laughed at the thought of the flavor text having a quote along the lines of "Whoa... I know gun-fu."

It may not be "movie cannon" SW but I love the mini. It's a beautiful sculpt and great paint job!

Just ordered the final minis I need to complete the set, Jango Fett is obviously the chase figure :jango:

I do think that WOTC is getting better with sculpts and paintwork on their minis, although I did have a few bent minis I had to fix in this set.

Glad they're covering KOTOR too.

But there is still someone missing... :gungan:

Wow! Done already?! Impressive... most impressive.

I just got my case from Buy.com and was disappointed in the over-all pull (that happens). Also disappointed in the paint on Bib Fortuna (Rare). Oh well. Trades and eBay... here I come!

Well, that depends on how many cases Sithspawn bought. I managed to complete Champions of the Force right out the gate by purchasing three cases.

Nothing too impressive in the boosters I bought, but since I have the full set on order, I'm not too worried.
