Awesome! Too bad these don't come out for a while yet. :(

The "multiple flavors" situation could be hairy because the new clones come in more colors than just the four ranks and white--there's the blue SpecOps trooper, the one with the small burgundy insignia as seen on the 12-inch doll,† the red-checkered Shocktrooper, the gold ARC-style troopers with Aayla Secura on Felucia, and even more than one helmet variation (Cmdr Baccarra).

It'll be interesting to see how the color variants all shake out.

I got that ad in last sunday's paper here in MN... you might want to stop into the local WM and see if they still have them laying around.

Very nice! I'll have to see if ours has been recycled yet or not; hopefully it's still around somewhere. If not, I'll take a trip to pick one up.

<March 31 Edit: Yep, I found it. :)>

If they are "rebooting" the line and starting over symbolically with the Luke, Leia, R2 and Chewie - I hope (for sanity's sake), when they do this, it means that they're going to handle the line a bit more like it was handled during the vintage days.

There was only ONE Tatooine Luke from ANH - sure he got re-released under the ESB and ROTJ banners, but there was never a second, third, fourth, etc... sculpt of the figure.

I would be happy if they use this line to put stakes in the ground and say "This is the ultimate Tatooine Luke and we'll never make another version of Luke in this outfit." If done with the right amount of accessories (long rifle, floppy hat, tan poncho, swappable belts (black vs. Stormtrooper) , binoculars, imperial blaster and lightsaber (lit and unlit)) and a high-level of articulation (at least 15 points) -- then I'd be okay with that.

If you think about it this would help the line survive the longest. Constantly re-issue the exact same figure in the exact same packaging and your profit margin goes up....................

My thoughts exactly, Pete. Get one or two definitive sculpts of core characters and recard them endlessly in a perpetual Hall of Fame assortment. This would free up a lot of production space and shelf space for bit players and background aliens--as well as repacks of some harder-to-find figures--red ARC, Holo Sidious, etc. (I just keep banging away on my Holo Sidious drum don't I? ;))

I know this is the wrong answer ;), but I actually like it.

Of course story-wise it doesn't make much sense for Plo to copy Ani's paintjob....

I was looking at Rorrworr earlier though and he's pretty darn small, smaller than the POTF2 Chewie I think.† Gonna look like a little baby compared to the Warrior.

Well Rorworr is a young Wookiee after all. Whilst the warrior is an adult in his physical prime.

Allright, thanks. That's what I thought. Good to know I'm not going crazy. ;)

But my "Too many damn multipacks" comment stands.

"Eeth Koth was killed on Geonosis according to the Power of the Jedi Sourcebook, but he nor his death are shown onscreen during the the battle. It was further confirmed in Inside the Worlds of Attack of the Clones that both Koth and Tarados Gon, a Klatooinian Jedi, died aboard a gunship that was shot down during the Battle of Geonosis. He has been replaced on the Jedi Council by fellow Zabrak, Agen Kolar."

Came with a $1 off EVERY figure you buy on 4/2 coupon. Probably old news, but I think I'll go to Target on 4/2.

Fella over at RS is saying the ROTS figures are going on sale for $4.99 the very next day, for the rest of the week.† Kinda renders the coupon pointless, other than the obvious issue of timing for the "impatient" folks that need to have everything on 4/2 (like me† :P)

It will help me to not feel like I'm in such a rush to get everything at Target on that first day now though, so that's somewhat relieving to know at least...

Then what's the [bleep]ing point of the coupons??? *sigh*

At least now I feel better about not getting a coupon--well, I haven't gotten one yet and my chances are rapidly dwindling.

Deluxe Wave 3:

Clone Troopers
Crab Droid (w/Walking Action, like the CW Spider Droid)
Stass Allie w/Speederbike (not sure if it's a BARC or regular bike)
NEW Spider Droid

Sounds good thus far.

I know it's heresy, but personally I'm hoping it is just the CW set with new heads. Most of mine will just be standing around in diorama fashion, so SA isn't necessary. Plus these are way cheaper.

Rebelscum's latest Q&A tries to answer the issue, and only manages to confuse me further.

Are the ROTS Clone Trooper multi packs a for sure thing or still only a rumor? If they going to be made will they be more like the Clone Wars multi packs or the current articulated ones?

Yes, they are a ďfor sureĒ thing and will be the Super Articulated version. At this point itís a shame they wonít be the new Episode III Clones, but at least itís something.

I don't even understand what they're talking about here. So they're SA with AOTC helmets rather than ROTS but .... 3-packs or 4? Exclusive or non?† ???

Too many damn multipacks.

I have no idea what Eeth Koth was up to.

I believe he was present (offscreen) at Geonosis and was killed there.

The interesting thing is that you can tell when Saesee Tiin is being played by different people too - which is a disappointment. I'm glad that George has at least been consistent with Ki Adi Mundi and having Silas Carson play him throughout.

Same here. Probably it's because Ki is the only Councilor extra who has any lines. Plus, Carson was already on hand playing Nute Gunray.

Whoops--I missed the part of your post indicating these were actually coming. I thought it was just spec.

I already have at least two Mauls, and soon the ROTS Dooku. Not worth getting the 3-pack just for Sid, unless he's something special like the aforementioned Holo version.

ROTJ Palpatine
