How hard is it exactly to turn them into regular Storm Troopers?

The extra gear is removeable: http://thefwoosh.com/2013/07/first-look-star-wars-the-black-series-sandtrooper

So not hard it seems. Just they'll be dirty troopers. The blue on the helmet is different to regular troopers.

There may be some miniscule difference that I'm not aware of, though.

You can see some slight differences, but the main this is the paldron/backpack are removeable.

Holy molly!

I bought mine for like $18 each but that Sand-trooper and R2-D2 is worth around $30.

Have now seen them in local TRU for $35 each.

Not sure how US$20 equates to A$35 when the exchange rate was at 90c?

When Hasbro AU's wholesale price is more than the US retail price is how!  Sad

I am bewildered by remarks from Australian companies concerned about Australian's not spending their money on their products. When a company like Hasbro Australia prices their toys like this, it is little wonder.

Yeah. I get tired of speeches about insurance, import, staffing costs, etc, when US companies have the same expenses.

Saw the whole wave at Penrith TRU today. They had many incase anyone was looking. Wanted to by one but 35 was more than I wanted to spend.
Went to target and saw a ROML Piledriver. Mulled it over but ended up getting it. It's a fun and cool looking figure.

Ugggh....I was hoping someone would have them for less than that.

Screw Hasbro Australia, I'll continue to get my stuff from the US

All I gotta say is, nice one Hasbro Quality Control (watch out for the double right legs on Sandtrooper to the right) Smile

Also, should point out its 20% toys at Target for this week, so they come down to $28.

Has anyone seen 6" Black in any of the "big" stores other than TRU and Target?

Hey, here's a high res pic of Luke. I can't tell. Have they fixed the head?



This looks a little more like it to me. The paint job on they eyes seems to be consistent with Leia though.
