Okay, I'll be the first to admit that I'm overly picky, but is anybody else annoyed that the new boosters are on square bases?

Squares would be just fine, if they'd been using them all along, but flipping the script mid-stream???

My problem with the new bases isn't the square-ish-ness of them. It's the new thickness. The new bases are considerably thicker than the old ones, apparently, just so they can slap a 'Star Wars' logo on it.

I really would have preferred more consistency with the bases.

Yup. The Star Wars logo is completely unnecessary.

I *HATE* these new bases, man. Looks ridiculous, and totally screws up the look of the battlefield.

Thankfully, as I understand it this was a one-off "30th anniversary celebration" type deal, and we're back to circle bases next set.


I want the new starter and the Battle of Hoth pack...*drool*...so good times are ahead for SWM fans.

The initial release of this set is in conjunction with and to commemorate the 30th anneversary of the release of the first film. If you don't like the square bases, wait until the second prduction run is available, and get those. Only the initial production run is supposed to have the commemorative bases.

Here's some info on a CCG/CMG minis fansite that has the info for the Hoth pack and upcoming products:

I've read about the starter somewhere (it's a six-pack with a new Vader, a new Old Ben, and a couple of scrubs for each side...and a new map, always a bonus.) Right now I can't remember where I read about it from.

Clarification the new starter Vader and Obi are older figures.

The Vader is the one from the Revenge of the Sith set; the Obi is the one from Rebel Storm.
