They are fantastic, face scalp on Han Solo is amazing.
I have Jyn hopefully arriving next week. When she arrives will post a few photos.

Managed to source Galen Erso off Ebay for a good price.I give up hope of ever finding one on the stores...StarAction Figures had it on a pre-order a few weeks back but I missed that chance and know they've sold out of their pre-order and Wayne at SAF said they most likely won't get any more in...

My new edition to my Hot Toys collection arrived today and I think Jyn maybe my favourite yet.

Picked up a POTF 2 Snowtrooper off ebay the other day...The seller didn't pack it too well though...the bubble has been crushed on the top and bottom of it..
It's hard to see in the photo but it's there...i compared it to the Ebay photos the seller used and it is the same figure but the bubble was spot on when it left him so it was ballaxed in transit :evil:

He did refund me full but that's not the what I wanted...i wanted a perfect carded figure...if he had only packaged it better :(

Nice pick ups Chiffy 8)

I've only ever seen the Rogue One A-wing once in any store and that's the one I have (Asda in Leeds if I remember rightly)....never seen it in TRU or Smyths

Nice set of 40th figures and I've ended up getting a full set of both series myself. I should really have just picked up each set as a whole instead of piece by piece but at the time the pre-orders were up I wasn't sure I wanted to get involved. Glad I did though as they look great on display and it's nice to see the old card back images in any form.

I'm sure over time you'll end up with the all :wink:

Thanks i agree there is something that i love about them it probably is mostly the cardbacks but i think the stormtrooper and tusken raider are really nice figs.

Agree with Teebo- Jyn is the best one yet.

Love seeing the POTF2 figs- considering doing a green card run.
