Im guessing Chewie's chain doesn't come off without it literally being broken off and even then, the figure might not look good without it?

Also, yes, i pre-ordered 3 stormtroopers. Need that army.

Just still keeping my fingers crossed for the scout trooper and bike.

The whole collar is part of his headsculpt. Chain doesn't come off. Shame, because they finally did a decent job with his face.

I feel like I have too many. I can't fit anything new into some of my displays because I have too many Stormtroopers. I'd love to just keep adding and adding to that, but it's just not practical.
Solution: get a bigger display or more shelves.

Then you will need more stormtroopers.

One day. Not in the cards at the moment.

Also, given the choice, I'd prefer to add new characters and new designs to the display rather than repetition.

That's kinda where I'm at too. I have 2 whole tiers of a shelf devoted entirely to troopers (and on each tier is a 4 tiered shelf organizer- so LOTS of troopers), and it still bled over onto the main shelf. I've cut back on a lot of the newer troop builders unless it's either a named character or something new/specific to a certain Jedi. I still love me some troopers, but I just can't justify it, especially with other troop builders like the Nightbrothers or Mando security droids, etc. I will say, I've saved a bunch of money that way, which is nice! :D

In happy news, my significant other is on a trip in London right now, and snagged me Clone Wars Maul, Aayla, and Grand Inquisitor, so I'll have them early next week. Said they had almost all the new figures I'm looking for, but I didn't want to make anyone go bankrupt, so just asked for the ones I'm most excited about.

Nice!

I try to only get unique troopers. So, one snowtrooper, one scout, etc. I have six Sandtroopers though because there were six different ones with unique loadouts. Two Deathtroopers: one regular and one with all the gear, and so on. But regular Stormtroopers... I will have six after the two Jedha guys i ordered and strip of the Jedha gear, and I will do my best to stick to that many.

Sorry for the dumb question, I'm seeing different dates for the first Andor figures (EE says January and BBTS says August), do we know which one is correct?

I'd think somewhere in the middle. That wave has started popping up in Asia, and the "current" wave still isn't in most places in the US.

Received my first batch of sale items from Pulse. It included the Cassian Andor/B2EMO set, which I purchased to open. Good thing too, as it was pretty beat up. It’s a nice package, and has zero plastic, though the figures were not bagged in that wax paper. They had their own individual display boxes once you removed the sleeve.

Cassian himself is fine. Looks pretty much how he did in the first couple episodes. He does not have a holster for his pistol, or at least this figure didn’t come with one. Likeness is stronger than the R1 figure.

Bee is the real draw for me, since he doesn’t seem to be available on his own outside of this set. He expands and retracts like he does on the show. His head only spins, though I was hoping it would also pivot.

Generally happy with this set. Oddly, I think I’m looking most forward to Mon Mothma as a figure from this line. Luthen, Vel, Bix, are probably what I’m next excited for, in order of most to least. There’s also another Imperial officer besides the Target exclusive I just picked up..

Mon Mothma is the only one I don't have pre-ordered, because she doesn't come with anything. As is, I'm gonna wait for a deal on that one.

Nice collection, Norm!

Got the new Shoretrooper from Andor. I just love this trooper design. This makes four unique versions of the Shoretrooper, right?

Yeah, you have WAY more than me, heh.

The Scout Trooper in Solo, is that the Patrol Trooper? That and the Shoretrooper are my favorite disney designs and I with they'd bring it back like they did the Shoretroopers.
