A mate of mine bought some off spanish eBay. He got the Wampa and a few commons (Duro, Imp Officer, Rebel Leader, Wookiee, Vong Scout).

The quality of the minis is very good, so don't be misled by the Han in Stormtrooper preview on WOTC site. Very good sculpts. And the Wampa is awesome, perfect for Exar or to be Masked by Nom.

Minis I'm most wanting are probably Quinlan Vos, Boba Fett and Ithorian Commander. Oh, and lots of those wookiees :)

When are they releasing in America? Or am I out of the loop and they're already out? :rolleyes:

I'm guessing the 25th, based on what I've seen on a few different online stores.

While I'm a bit envious of you guys that bought boosters via Ebay, I'm also willing to wait a few more days to get my pre-ordered cases.

Though I might just wander down to the FLGS over the weekend and snag a couple boosters just to tide me over until then:)

They release this Friday.

I got my full set (ah, the perks of working on the Star Wars line!) and about 6 boosters already. Just in time for my office RPG game to start up...

My LGS has had the minis in and he's shown me his letter authorising release on 23rd May.

So tomorrow I'll be posting my pulls :D

I got my two cases, yay! And my first pull was Boba Fett :D

I do like the sculpts and paint. Very good and easily as good as Bounty Hunters. Lukes speeder and the Ronto are ace!

Just missing seven minis. Missing Jabba, Han Taun Taun, Luke COTF, Wampa, Obi-Wan, Repulsorsled & Sing. Grrr... really wanted Jabba.

Only gripe is the bases. I didn't mind them being square, but they take up more space in my minis box. Still, great set. Now to complete it B)

I wish my office would start up an RPG game. But seeing how I work for a church, I don't think that's going to happen. :)

If anyone gets any extra Vong they don't need/want after trading, etc... I'd be interested in buying them at a reasonable price. Please keep me in mind.

As for office RPGs... I don't have anything like that going on here but I'm hoping to get a new Saga Edition with Minis support RPG group going this Fall, once the new store opens in the area.

Bought some boosters from a local Borders (FLGS got boned over by Fed-Ex and wouldn't be getting their order until next Tuesday due to the holiday).

Pulled R2 and 3P0 out of the first booster, the Vong unique out of the 2nd, a dupe of the droid couple, and finally a Storm Commando.

R2 & 3P0 are certainly an interesting combo, having the abilities of both individual droids, such as Overide, Draw Fire, and Repair (making Draw Fire a little less sacrificial).

The Storm Commando however could be hell on wheels, especially if he doesn't move and gets the drop on somebody. Cunning Attack + Deadeye + Double Attack = OUCH! Too bad he only has a base damage of 10 :rolleyes:

That's something else I noted is that a lot of the figures in this set have a base damage rating of 10, much like Rebel Storm did.

I bought my first booster at Borders today, and will buy another in a few days. I got Han Solo, Rogue, and was very impressed with the level of detail there. I also got the Trando merc, and was very happy with him. Of lesser not, my other pulls were Rebel Pilot, Snowtrooper, Ewok Warrior (oh yeah! ;) ), Snivvian Fringer, and Talz Spy. Hopefully my next pack will have Mara Jade Skywalker; if not, I'll just find some other place to buy her.

I got several minis I didn't care too much about, a Vong, a Rebel, a... blah blah blah.

But then I saw Luke Skywalker, Hero of Yavin. I'm a happy camper.

bought 3 boosters here, I pulled a Han on Taun Taun, Ewok Glider, Yomin Carr, and that's it for the rare and very rare groups. I did get one of the wookie freedom fighters though.:) Only question is my Mon Cal Tech Specialist is Purple (?) and the base for the Ewok Glider is Blue(?) has anyone else had these come up?

Not that I mind different colors on things, just thought it was odd since all the other bases were Black, and I thought Mon Cals were more of a pink color not purple.

Stratos
29 May 2007, 04:29 PM
The Ewok base is blue? That's weird.

The Mon Cal has purple skin? Not weird. In the EU there are all sorts of coral colored Mon Cal... so teal blue, coral red (pink), and purple would all make sense. Though on screen they're likely only pink/red de to the cost of the times and making masks.

Not sure on the color of my Ewok Glider, but I think it was black.

Finally got my cases last night (at 7:30pm thanks to the stoner that was driving the UPS truck :rolleyes: )

Not quite the same luck as I had with Champions of the Force.

Only need four figures to finish the set. Sadly, all of them are expensive VR figs; Quinlan, Fett, Vader, and Jabba.

Aw while, it'll be off to the trade houses once I get my figs sorted...

Mon Cal Tech Specialist is Purple
I think, like Twi'leks, there are a host of colors that Mon Cal can be.

Yep, they're a regular rainbow coalition ;)

I got another pack today. A few repeats, but I did get Admiral Piett, one of my personal favs in the Imperial navy. :) Unfortunately, I got some stupid Vong Advanced Scout that I could very happily lived without. Stupid Vong, ruining Star Wars. Otherwise, not too much in that pack. :(

My son got a booster & pulled Admiral Piett and the Force Adept, nothing else spectacular that I recall.

Well, got my very first set of Minis - Alliance and Empire Booster pack (was bundled from amazon with the SAGA book to qualify for the super saving shipping - so for the cost of shipping + 4bux extra got me the booster.)

Ok, my Very first pulls:

Cards, with StormTrooper
Storm Trooper
Elite Hoth Trooper
Twi'lek Rebel Agent
Storm Trooper Officer
Tusken Raider
Han Solo, Rogue
Gamorrean Guard

Looks like Han Solo, Rogue is Rare, if i understand the coding right - WOTC Alliance & Empire Minis Database (http://www.wizards.com/swminis/swminis_db.asp?term=&format=AE&cost=Allcosts&defense=Alldefense&attack=Allattack&damage=Alldamage&hitpoints=Allhitpoints&faction=Allfactions&rarity=Allrarities&output=summary&sort=number)
C = Common
U = Uncommon
R = Rare
VR = Very Rare


On a side note, now how about that - for a Twi'liphile getting his very first set of minis, and gets a Twi'lek Rebel Agent in the first pack. Looking through the sw minis sets, the fem Twi'lek Body Gaurd might've been more preferable but hey, a Twi's a Twi . And for the scruffy lookin nerf-herder that i usually am, I scored a Han Solo to boot!
B)

It was actually fun reaching into the box and see'ing what I can pull out B)

Call me strange, but I think i'll just leave'm in the sealed baggies they came in. Purely from a collector's stance.

Darnit, I wanna buy more now but the stores are too expensive and amazon takes a couple days on expidited ;)

Chello!

I bought 2 boxes this weekend and pulled the following:

Box #1
C-3PO & R2-D2
Gamorrean Gurad
Nikto Soldier
Chadra-Fan Pickpocket
Advance Scout (Vong)
Rodian Scoundrel
Wookiee Freedom Fighter


Box #2
Mara Jade, Jedi
Mon Cal Tech Specialist
Gamorrean guard
Snowtrooper
Trandoshan Merc
Stormtrooper Officer
Rebel pilot

Not too bad...seems like a got a few Fringe types....7 of 14 and only 1 Vong (thank gawd!).

As to the Vong ruining SW...that's one thing I like about Legacy so far. The Vong War happened, but it's like they ignore it pretty much (for all the impact it had). :D

Damn I want more mini's

Ok gents - it's been very civil but let's keep the anti-Expanded Universe comments to more appropriate forums. You can express a disinterest in a particular Mini because you didn't like said character in the EU but to just throw out anti-EU comments isn't appropriate around these parts.

Cheers!

And great pull! I wouldn't mind getting a Mara, Jedi. Tired of playing the Imperial lackey version.

12 packs:

Darth Vader, Stormie Han, Scoundrel Han , Luke, Mara Jade, Boba Fett, Quinlan Vos, Tarkin, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, Lando, and the Storm Commando!! muahahaha!!!

Easily the best case Ive ever gotten. The only sucky thing is poor WOTC wont get any more of my money for this set LOL I got everything I wanted in one shot :) :) :)

This may be a tad late, but I got one yesterday, and pulled the following:

Mara Jade, Jedi
Rodian Scoundrel
Ithorian Commander
Rebel Pilot
Gammorean Guard
Snowtrooper
Mon Calamari Tech Specialist

The Mara Jade rocks (I'll need more New Republic figures to play her though.)

was able to snag a Mara Jade, Jedi from a recent booster purchase. Sweet pose and H E double hockey slash to the legs, awesome figure to get.

My only question is, Did she pull that Lightsaber from Palpatine's private stores, or did she actually make a Purple bladed lightsaber like Mace? Yes, my figure from that set has a purple saber, making her all the more higher in the "Sweetness" category.

Admiral Zaarin
18 December 2007, 05:08 PM
She made her own purple saber. Since she's my favorite character in Star Wars, I recently purchased her from GM Sarli games.

The wife and I just got a pretty good pull the other day. It was pretty cool because we were having a church gift exchange. There were enough minis players there that there were two booster packs floating around. It was a dirty Santa type exchange, so my wife stole a booster pack with a Han Solo on Tauntaun, while someone else got Chewbacca, enraged Wookiee. Either way, we were both happy.

I think my best pull has been Luke Skywalker, Champion of the Force. I've stuck him with Obi Wan Kenobi and a couple of people with commander effects. He winds up doing a lot of damage.

just got a couple more boosters, and was able to pull a Obiwan Jedi Spirit, and R2 and 3po.
