You think they know about it and are putting out "Build Your Army" stuff to appeal to the common Brikwars player? It's certainly an excellent idea, because otherwise you had to go to odd places and unusual ends to get just minifigs. With these, you get minifigs and a few spare parts (as opposed to getting 4 minifigs along with a huge fucking spaceship). Which is very useful to the average player. I find them extremely useful, and am currently saving up for a CLONE THEMED ARMY! Huzzah!
you know, i strongly agree with this, but i'm still short on scout troopers, which i actually prefer as troopers as opposed to stormies. anyone know modern sets that still sell them? and without getting an imperial walker?

Actually, I don't think any sets this year have Scout Troopers. Now that I think of it, I haven't seen any since Lego SW changed from yellow to peach.

Snow Troopers came with the Hoth set last year and Sand Troopers came with the dropship (both of these had been previously represented, but I'm trying to think of recent sets.) This year we're getting Blackhole Troopers and stormies, and apparently we're getting the Mark 1 clone helmets to go with the clone wars stuff (MTT, Gunship, etc. Getting some new jedi from the sound of it too.) But, uh, there was a scout troop pack that came with display cards and Chewie a while ago. Dunno if those would be easy to find...

They already did Kit Fisto. The Hyperdrive ring set, him and Obi Wan. Besides, the Emperor cut through him like an evil knife through soft jedi butter.

No, apparently Asajj Ventress (bald, very pale sith wanna-be), Plo Koon (one of the mostly awesome members of the council,) Obi Wan and two clones will come with the Gunship and The AT-TE gets Anakin,... aww, go look for yourselves: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=294252

About the stormtroopers, the one on the left looks like Piltogg, the one in the middle looks like a girl I know (oddly enough), the one on the right looks good.
You are unique, just like everybody else.

I have to admit I like this implied contrast though.

I can't see what's so difficult about googling for "female stormtrooper".
