    Opened the tin and was sorta disappointed. No instructions, no dice, and no assembly guide. Several of the ship types we are seeing in this assortment are very small and need to be glued together or thery fall apart sooooo easily. This is particularly true of the tauntauns and even the snowspeeders. I dont' know how they didn't realize the engineering flaws before production.... And the exlcusive shield generator in the tin is basically useless in a game. You set it up to protect an objective, but if the objective card (Hoth Rebebl Base) that allows you to set it up is destroyed, you also loose the generator protection. The defense on the Hoth Rebel Base card is only a 9, so you are prety likely to have that destroyed in one attempt with a decent attacker. Hopefully the other ships in the set are more useful than what came in the tin, althought the walkers and AT-STs look pretty cool!

    I'm glad you posted that. lol

    I almost picked it up today. Ralph has one coming in for him as well. I think I'll get it there. But it is a good thing you posted the review. We should fine a way to past it on the the company it self. We spend a lot of money on these thing. I know I'd like them to at leased work. Sounds like they cheaped out on this around.

    I hope the rest of the set get's better. We should fine out this week. When they come in I'll let you know. Maybe we can get together sometime this weekend and set them up. It they show. lol I have the weekend off.

    SeeYa,

    THat sounds good. Yeah, I figured that the 5 of us that are splitting the case could sit around opening and swapping to complete the set as mich as possible. I don't think I have much going on this weekend....

    Haha. Funny.

    The ebay seller who has a lot of cheap singles from the first wave is herotown. Send me your list again and I'll check with Tony and Sarah (ya know, the neighbors' you ditched a few weeks ago) to see if they have any of them. I know Tony bought a sizeable lot with a lot of extras to finish off his set.

    Ok....So I picked up my tin today for the NEw set for Battle of Hoth. The tin is very nice.

    I do like the amount of items that come in it. I thikn it is worth the price. However.....! lol

    The assortment ..... Well let just say..... IT SUCKS! I'm talking about the cards. Of the 30 new cards you get.... let see, how's this.

    I have...

    5 #5 Attack from with.
    4 #23 Jedi leap
    4 #68 Snow troopers
    3 #8 Blizzards

    Thats mosre than half the set of 30. Than I stil have 12 more cart that are al doulbes. I personaly think that BLOWS!! They really have to do something about that. It was like that in the first set were in one pack you'd have 4 and 5 of the samething. They really need to work on mixing them up a little better.

    SeeYa,
    TK

    Anyone interested in ordering 24-pack booster cases for roughly $62 each from Jetpacks? TK, James, 2 neighbors, and I each ordered one last time and came close to full sets at nearly half the price of the retail per pack price. I still have extra ships from the first 2 assortments, if we ever have another meeting, I'll bring them along for sale/trade.

    TK, send me your "need" for the base and ground assault sets so I can help you complete them. I can also cross your lists with tony, sarah, and james to see if they have anything you are looking for.

    TK,

    Will bring the cards and units for you on Sunday.

    Also, if anyone is interested, Ralph can have booster boxes of the Order 66 expansion for us this week if we get him the cash ASAP (by Sunday). We need to pre-pay because his orders are COD. It's $70 for a booster box -- that's $50 off of retail for the same number of individual packs!
