Broke down and bought a couple of the Sandtroopers today. Love all the accessories. An R2 is scheduled for delivery on Monday, and that'll finish wave one after picking up Luke and Maul a few weeks ago.

They were the first ones I got. I have since purchased Sandtrooper and R2. Sandtrooper is a stunner. The first shipments flew off the shelves and were impossible to find at first but the 2nd shipments are hanging around a little.

i cleaned the sand off of a sandtrooper but need to repaint the helmet. anyone know of a good brand and type of paint to use? never tried the whole 'custom' thing.

thought i'd try it because i've touched up scuffed gloved hands/fingers with colored sharpies before and they looked fine.

i've got some art skills. drawing with brush and ink...just need an idea what the best paints would be.

This line is already doomed. Far too long between wave releases. This will end the same way as Legends.....stores chalk full of old crap. You would think they would learn.

I have 2 Targets with completely full shelves of these. They sold through the first 3 boxes just fine.

They have barely been out two months.
A new wave every quarter is fine by me.

He never had a holster in that particular incarnation of the X-Wing costume though (ANH). He never even wore a lightsaber in that costume though it's unobtrusive enough to include it.

He did have a holster in Empire but the costume is different (cold weather jacket, belt from Bespin fatigues with holster etc, different boots, gloves, and so on). Not to mention his hair style and, seemingly, facial features are different too. An Empire version of X-Wing/Snowspeeder/Dagobah Luke is a totally new figure just about.
