I'd love all 6 bounty hunters, but how would you do a 4-LOM Unleashed?


edit: LOL, Nick and I are sharing a brain today.  Too much time on spawn.com. ;)

Hope it's not your brain we're sharing, what with all the brain cells you've been killing!  ;)  Oh, if we only had Molson Bradour in the US.

The concept for Unleashed definitely has some room for growth.  I could see Hasbro doing some sort of an Unleashed box set along the lines of McFarlane's 2-packs.  Bring the price point of those up to say $20 - $25 and include a larger piece.  Perhaps Jabba the Hutt, Biker Scouts or something else along those lines.

I think there are still a number of possibilities for main characters in the line.  I think you just need to be a little open to different ideas.

Well, for you Unleashed freaks, FWIW, I have an extra Yoda Unleashed for trade.

As for the secondary market, Brent is right on the money.  It does nothing for Hasbro other than raise the profile.  In fact, the low availability of helmet-less Vader and the original slave Leia reminds me a lot of what McFarlane has done.  They make some things very tough to get and it generates a lot of buzz.  Some of it's negative and will drive people away, but a lot of it's positive and will draw people in because all of a sudden the line seems that much more collectible.

I'm genuinely excited to see what Unleashed figures ROTS generates.  I'm hoping for a Wookiee ripping a Clone Trooper's arms out of his sockets, but I guess I'll just have to wait and see.

Sounds cool, Scott.  Are you going to go for Koto Vader 2?  It might be cool to bookend your Vader focus area with both Koto pieces.

When it does clearance, typically it goes really fast.  But TRU has been very slow to do this as ruthlessly as Target.

Well, I ordered both...my first and only steps into this line :-[

You won't be disappointed with these.  After seeing them a couple of times in person I have to say that they're among the best pieces Gentle Giant has ever offered in the mini-bust line.

It just seemed so appropo!  ;)  Besides, I gave up discussing politics with knuckleheads on the internet a long time ago.

They seriously did that?  What, were they watching that season of "Dallas" where Bobby was killed off, only to have it turn out that the entire season was a dream?  What a bad joke.

Nope, you're wrong.  The one with the macrobinocs is Bly.  You know it too.



Not only do you know the future, but you read minds too?  Uhhh.... NO.


Scott is completely right.  The only thing that will settle this is Aayla Secura addressing a specific Clone Commander IN THE MOVIE as Commander Bly.  Until then it's all questionable.

That will probably be the definitive statement on the issue.  Until then, the Visual Dictionary is the only visual reference that Lucasfilm has offered, and should be treated as the real deal. 

lol

So where in your bountiful reasearch do you have a signed affidavit from the artist(s) who drew and colored the comic adaptation that they saw the entire movie from begining to end ALONG WITH definitive character designs for every single Clone Trooper in REVENGE OF THE SITH?  And of course, corroborating evidence from the people who approve all of these materials at Lucas licensing before they go to press?  Oh wait, you don't.

OWNED.  So totally OWNED.

Nick, arent you trying to disprove it though?

Can't we all just get along?

Kevin

Not at all.  There's info out there that says one thing, and info indicating another.  If the Visual Dictionary says one thing and the comic adaptation says another, then we have a contradiction.  It's contradictory information from Lucasfilm, meaning that WE DON'T KNOW FOR CERTAIN.  That's far from saying that you can definitively point to a picture and say "This is Commander Bly".

Okay, according to the comic published by "Lucas Books," in the scene on Felucia, Aayla says, "Is it droids Bly?"  And then, the clone (Commander Bly) with the macrobinoculars, yellow painted thigh armor, yellow painted breath filter, and long rifle, the only one who looks like that (And like Thire) replies to Aayla, "NO" and then pulls a pistol and shoot her in the back.

There is Scott's and Nick's proof that Aayla addresses Commander Bly and he replies to her directly.

Checkmate.

Not quite.  Lucas Licensing had to approve both DK's Visual Dictionary AND Dark Horse's comic adaptation.  That being said, there is contradictory information from Lucas Licensing.  You're wasting entirely too much of your time trying to prove this.

This may seem silly, but you know what I like about this piece?  Hasbro put the decals on at the factory!  That was one of the biggest hassles about the Sneak Preview fighter & the Obi-Wan fighter:  it was IMPOSSIBLY DIFFICULT to get the decals well placed in the cockpit.  Thanks for doing it on this one, Hasbro.

Some of these Clone Commanders will undoubtedly make it into the Databank at The Official Site at some point.  That will probably be the definitive statement on the issue.  Until then, the Visual Dictionary is the only visual reference that Lucasfilm has offered, and should be treated as the real deal.  You can disagree with that all you want, but until photographic evidence is offered up to the contrary, or you see the movie at Midnight Wednesday and Aayla Secura specifically addresses a certain Clone Trooper as Bly, then we have to accept the Visual Dictionary as fact.

I don't think so.  Why would just 1 of this crew have a yellow painted breath filter, yellow painted thigh armor, macrobinoculars, and the long rifle rather than the short one that all the other are carrying, look just like Thire, and not be Commander Bly?  The Visual Dictionary is clearly a mistake.

...In your opinion.
