Just bought 7622 Indiana Jones Race For The Stolen Treasure and ANOTHER Imperial Dropship today. This is my fifth Imperial Dropship. I have 16 Stormtroopers now, haha.

The Indiana Jones set was a really fun build. Does anyone else have it (I think Dr. X does)? I just found it to be really fun to make for some reason. It will be stripped apart tonight, though. I need a couple of matching jeeps.

It's actually a pretty cool set.

King's Castle Siege for 50 bucks from (evil) Wal*Mart. Also Crossbow attack for a buck from shopko and an Aquaraiders set (the one with the angler fish) for 5 bucks.
What makes up fro crappy garage sales here now, makes up for good sales at the stores here (specfically the fact they price things wrong).

I bet it's a really big ship for the really big ships contest.

Yeah I want to build a SHIP, I'm only going to use one SD set, I think I'll keep the other one as is. But, looking at what I'm planning in my head and the amount of time available to me(holiday season). I don't think the new SHIP will be built in time for the contest. But, I already have one submitted. I took more photo's of her, I still need to resize and upload them.

I don't think the contest has any deadlines so far. J+B has been absent for some time now.

don't they come with 4 or 5 troops a ship
so either 5x4 or 5x5
so you have 20 or 25 guys not 16.

Sry, small things like this really bug me...

They come with three white Stormtroopers and one Black-Hole Trooper (I believe that's what they're called. It was discussed on the forum, but I don't remember where and I'm lazy). I have five sets, so that's fifteen Stormtroopers and then I had one more from another set.

Yes, the black ones are not Stormtroopers.

They are "Black Hole Dark Troopers".

a black hole trooper is completely different than a black hole stormtrooper. The difference is that a black hole storm trooper is an elite soldier with black armor, while a black hole trooper is half-robot and half-murder.

I knew it was something like that. All the armor is just so similar and I was never a big fan of the extended universe.

The black ones are called "Shadowtroopers".
