I'm in agreement on the huges. Even without stats I do want to see which ones we're getting.

Yeah, even knowing the sculpts would make a difference. Granted, for me right now it's the difference between ordering one case or two (and I'll probably lean towards two anyways) but if the sculpts are really bad for the huges, then I'd definitely rather just buy singles.

Have we had a bad sculpt for a huge yet? I don't remember one.

If i were you, i'd still buy two cases just because this is a huge set and you dont get as much.

Lets hope we get something today.

True.....I guess it's not so much that we've had poor sculpts per se, but that it's been somewhat poor choices for Huge characters. There were only certain ones from BH that I wanted more than one of (Snowspeeder and Basilisk) and nothing from Universe that I wanted more than 1 of.

I probably will pre-order two cases, and hope to not end up with more doubles of Huges than what I absolutely want anyways. Dang it...I'm gonna have to start carrying around two storage cases....

That is my only regret with this game is that right now my collection is so big that i have given up trying to take it anywhere. Anymore i just bring the army i am going to play.

I have my rolling suitcase with my rares, any C/UC I might need, and all the other necessities. Everything else is in a box at home, and I have a case for huges (which I had better reorganize soon).

So far, I still have my entire collection (barring about 7 or 8 huges that I NEVER use) in my tacklebox. I'm sure TFU will ruin that though. As it is, I had to completely reorganize everything after A&E came out anyways. If there are very few Imperial, Republic, and Rebel pieces in this set, I might be OK, but I doubt it. My biggest problem right now is actually the square bases. The type of box I have will fit the square based A&E pieces, but I can only fit two in a space that three circle based figs will fit. So, they take up a lot more space.

I like being able to take my whole stash with me when I play because there are many times that on my way driving to the LGS I change my mind about the squad I'm going to play. Or, sometimes when I get there I find out that 2 other guys are playing the exact same squad as mine, so I decide to change (no, not to play a 'hate' against them, but to give our venue a little variety). Lastly, a couple of the younger guys frequently ask to borrow a piece from somebody if they haven't been able to get it for themselves yet, so it's nice to be able to let them do that whenever possible.

We'll see I guess. Will depend on how the factions break down, and how many of the non-U's I need to have multiples of (like my 11 Aqualish Assassins, lol).

The earlier the Set List and Rules Insert get out, the better, imo.

I used to bring my rolling case thing with everything except the huges. Last winter though I switched to an old backpack with my maps, my small supply of trade R/VR, and my squad for that week. When the snow went away and the rolling thing was an option again I was used to the backpack and didn't switch back. Since then A&E came out and my Rebel/Imperial trays got too full to close so I had to pull the commons for each out so now I probably couldn't bring everything even if I wanted to.

Yeah, I've really liked it when the Rules Insert sheet has been leaked a couple weeks before hand. The Set list I can go either way on, because sometimes it's cool to see the figures names, but for the most part, it doesn't matter without their stats. But it's definitely cool to see the new Rules Insert, and begin talking about the new rules interactions and such. Oh, and it gives us something to bug NickName about for a few weeks before we can actually play with the pieces. :P

Is anyone else annoyed that FU 6 weeks away and no preview? Perhaps it will be tommaro, although I really doubt it.

It will likely be tomorrow. WOTC_Erik explained the situation on the boards.

Thanks for posting that. I haven't bothered to check the WOTC boards recently.

are we officially using TFU now instead of FU? This may cause as many issues as UH. :)

LOL, I just use TFU because I figure it's slightly less offensive, in some people's eyes. Doesn't really matter to me. Hopefully that preview will be up sometime this morning, but I would guess it won't be until after 9 am PST when LucasArts begins their work day.
