Those sets look pretty cool, but I can't see myself buying them.

I have a feeling we'll be seeing some wild west armies when the cavalry set comes out, although it looks like it'll be more expensive than past battle packs. Yikes.

As for whether or not I will be buying these sets, I can assure you that I will be hunting extensively to find that mine set on sale/clearance. So much dark tan and other useful stuff.

The cavalry set looks nice. The rest look nice but not my thing.

15 your-o's? Ouch, that better not translate to America, even $15

My experience is that anything that is 15 your-o's is $15 in the US. I was made painfully aware of this fact when I spent time abroad in Europe this summer.

I don't get this lone ranger shit. Why did they get Johnny Depp to do it?

I do find it remarkable that in this day and age they would cast a white boy as Tonto. I mean, Tonto was never the most culturally sensitive figure, but come on like Bonn-o-Tron.

On the other hand, this means Depp joins the limited ranks of actors with more than one minifigure depiction.

Doubt it Cuussoo is barley letting any of the ones that aren't play themes through, I doubt they will let space marines through.

Just for trivia's sake, here are the other actors who have more than one minifig character:

    The ones everyone thinks of
    Harrison Ford: Indiana Jones, Han Solo
    Orlando Bloom: Legolas, Will Turner
    Ian McKellen: Gandalf, Magneto
    Samuel L. Jackson: Mace Windu, Nick Fury

    Does this really count?
    Kenny Baker: R2D2, Paploo

    The one with THREE minifigs!
    Alfred Molina: Satipo, Doc Ock, Sheik Amar

    The one with FOUR minifigs! (that may or may not count)
    Warwick Davis: Professor Flitwick, Griphook the Goblin, Wicket, Wald

Samuel L. Jackson doesn't count. The only Nick Fury minifig we have isn't even from the Avengers movie.

I also don't count Magneto, because he's not the movie Magneto (his uniform is different, and the set features a Deadpool who is- thankfully- clearly not the movie version).
