Yes, it has definitely been confirmed, any reissues of A&E would have regular round bases.

Kinda irritating, really. I'm not going to PASS on these and WAIT for the new bases, but I will want them. And when I get them, it will render 90% of these figures moot for me.

Still a neat looking set, though, and I am glad to have some fun OT stuff at the center of this line again..

Just re-based about 20 of the figures -- took some of my random figures from previous expansions that I wasn't crazy about (or just had too many of) and removed their bases. I COULD have just used standard round bases from GW, but the whole point is that I want CONSISTENCY, so I want the bases to be standard WOTC bases. I can find a use for the ones I removed -- and I specifically took about 5 or 6 clones and stormtroopers, because de-based, those guys make great casualties.

Then I rebased some of my favorite A&E figs: Death Star trooper, Death Star gunner, Bespin Leia, Bespin Han, Imperial Officer, Chadra fan and Duros (love those Cantina aliens!), Snaggletooth (snivvian, but he's Snaggletooth to me!), elite Hoth and Tantive IV and Endor rebels, snowtrooper, rebel pilot, tusken raider, biker scout, and a stormtrooper. Some of those -- basically, everything we've already seen like stormtroopers and tusken raiders -- I just wanted the A*E versions to match the previous ones for a proper comparison. New figures, meanwhile, I just wanted to fit with the set, especially new versions of previous issued characters -- new outfits for Han, Leia, etc. Others I was fine leaving on the square bases.

They all look SO MUCH BETTER to me. Less like "collector's item" specialty display pieces, more like proper SW minis...

Ooh, sorry, I already listed my extras on eBay. I put all my Vong in one big set, listed at like $10. It's two R figs, some U figs, and a bunch of C figs. I'd have given you a good trade if I'd known you wanted 'em -- but you know, I'll probably pull more, I'm not done getting boosters. I'll keep you in mind.

L

slightly less irritated with my bad pulls now that I've rebased my figs. I grabbed a case and was somewhat happy with what I had, but then I got some extra boosters and just about EVERY rare fig was a duplicate for me . Took me ages to find spirit Ben and the landspeeder, and I never did pull Solo on the tauntaun or Solo as a stormtrooper -- ended up having to get them online. Meanwhile I've got 3 Wickets....

another note: this set really has some of the best painted figs, and some of the worst -- the snivvian, Snaggletooth, has a stunning inkwash on his face, just the most beautifully painted face I've seen on ANY WOTC fig, SW or D&D, for their entire run -- the most detailed, best painted WOTC headsculpt I've seen them do. But the Hoth rebel trooper is a freaking JOKE, esp. compared to the Rebel Storm hoth troops. And, curiously enough, the Imperial snowtroop is inferior to the RS version, with no inkwash and a generally poorer paint job, while the biker scout figure is much improved, with a far more detailed sculpt and a much improved paint job, including an inkwash the previous figure didn't get! Bespin Leia is ten times better than Hoth Leia, too. Overall, I'd say this set is the best painted, most impressively rendered set since RS, but those bases are just a freaking insult....

I didn't mention it becuase i was totally floored that out of all that i opened i only had 2!, managed to get three of the Yomin/tomin Carr or what not's which are Rares, but only snaged 2 of the Uncommons, i just figured i would have had another 1 at least to possibly 3... i mean i got like 8 of the freaking Imp Officer, but 2 of these guys... darn, random boosters...
