Germany and Austria always have new sets early. Too bad I'm going there after Christmas...

This might have been mentioned already, but the red robot has headpiece that is shaped like Boba Fett's Slave One.

Hmm thats pretty interesting, and makes sense when looking at the sets. Still doesn't explain why we only get one red guy though...

If the red team is for speed, it explains the speeder, and as for the reason that Billy is a alone is that poor Billy is assigned to gurilla warfare.

So it's good strategy to rush at a giant mantis insect with blades three times the length of a human in a small buggy?

Don't forget, the rear of the buggy detaches so you can also have a flying unit.  Maybe you could distract the mantis with the buggy and blast 'em with the flyer.

There are more red team members, they're just going so fast we can't see them.

Billy needs no mates nor vehicles because he's Flash Gordon, Speedy Gonzales, Neo, Roadrunner, Sonic the Hedgehog, the guy from Green Hornet etc. He can take 'em all out on his own with speed. :laugh:

So, what he's basically saying is that "Da red wunz goes fasta!"

....I didn't know Billy was an Ork. :tongue:

Definitely is reflected in the designs of their vehicles, though.

Well, apart from Billy's lacklustre scooter which can't have enough power to do more than putter around. *grumble grumble mutter*

You can tell the red is speed because of the robots streamlined head. Nothing makes you go fast like a streamlined head.

I can't take much longer without these sets in the UK. I keep on going on LEGO Shop @ home and seeing Galaxy Squad on the categories, only to see I have the country set as U.S. :cry_sad:

And at least ten weeks before they hit the Netherlands...I hate being the last to get things. On the other hand, when things do arrive here, we do get the exclusive sets too.

Talking about getting sets, when do you reckon the next Sun free LEGO giveaway is. I'll have to get at least 3 of each Galaxy Squad polybag. (Unrelated: Must get as many Mirkwood Elf polybags as I can, but that's not as important as GS!)

Shami.... as in what's written on the "Alien Trooper's" armour?

Interesting find on the skills. :purrr:

...I don't quite get the Billy jokes going around, aside from the lack of a substantial vehicle and duplication in an exclusive or poly. Orange is the only team with more than one human, so Billy's just as 'alone' as Solomon and Chuck. It's just that Jack & Chuck also appear in polybags and Solomon appears in the exclusive set, too. Or am I over-thinking it?

Over-Thinking it. Also It's the fact that he's the only one in the red team and only appears in one, quite large set.( well not small anyway.)

Ok, now I have to aks...where do we get the polybags if not as a gift for a larger order at S@H? I only see them sometimes at the discounter and as addon in comics.
