Yeah, for that added Children of the Corn effect.
(We know who the vendor is rumored to be, but we're deciding to keep it anonymous at the moment as to not steal their thunder should this rumor pan out.) Apparently this set will be packaged the same way as Amazon's Trooper 4-Pack with and will include "battle damage" paint applications. What's more, this set looks to be based on clones from Revenge Of The Sith and this might be called out on the packaging. (Could this be a set that includes a Shock Trooper, 501st Legion Trooper, 212th Attack Battalion Trooper and a 41st Elite Corps Trooper?) The set is also rumored to be $99.99. We've also learned that orders will go up for pre-sale in October and supposedly be shipped out late October thru the holidays. As with any rumor we post, please take with a grain of salt until never confirmed by Hasbro.
Looks like BBTS has the new 3.75" Falcon from CIVIL WAR up for pre-order. And it looks pretty cool!
The trick with increased shielding is the increased mass of the spacecraft. Launch operations and general propulsion are intrinsically tied to the mass of the spacecraft. A magnetic shield may be less massive than shield plating with a traditional material like lead, but could potentially interfere with onboard instrumentation.
