That's what I'm talking about! I'll take a crappy Yoda and Palpy for two SA Shocktroopers and a Senate Pod. What a great earkly Christmas present! :)

Senate Pod! Senate Pod! Senate Pod! ;D

I've wanted one of those forever!

Thank God they left out Mas Amedda

I can see finding lots of sets with the #6 clones returned. :(

This Battle Pack looks pretty nice to me too.  The Yoda and Palpatine are basically throw-aways for most I guess, but the SA Shocktroopers and Senate Pod make it a nice set overall.  I hope to pick it up for those two reasons alone.  I'm glad we didn't end up with Mas Amedda or something like that in this, and overall its not too bad of a set.

Me too  :-\. Just out of curiosity, how are you guys determining the Shocks to be the SA version? I can't make out the difference between the two molds with that photo they provided. It would be nice if they were but I'm not keeping my hopes up about that one.

A few pages back, I blew up the photo...

Take a looky at this blow-up...



In the blow-up pic, you can see what looks like the "nubs" of the antenna above the Shocktroopers heads.  Also, on the #6 the belt is sculpted on, but on the #41 sculpt, the belt is a separate piece - you can see in the picture that these clones have the larger separate piece belt indicating they may be #41.

Granted, things can change (insert Hasbro disclaimer here) but for now, the signs all point to #41 Clones...

Now that I look at the picture again, I've decided that this is too good to be true, and therefore the final product will, in fact, include two AT-TE Gunner molds with the helmets glued down.

LOL. :D

If they look like that picture, mark me down as wanting a couple.  Oh yeah, here's me begging.  Again. 

Why yes, Canada does suck, but so does Florida.

That's some serious detective work right there! Thanks. Still not going to get my hopes up but a #41 Shock would be nice. Until I see the final product I'll have to assume Jared's quote above is correct ;).

I'll be buying this. Just for the Shock Troops and the SEnate Pod though.

Yeah, this is great.  I won't be able to find any of these sets at retail of course.  But it's not to see they finally repainted this with the SA body.

Sweet! Finally we get a Senate pod, miniature though it may be.

I don't mind having a cloak-less Yoda.

Too bad they couldn't make an accurate Emperor, but I guess I should count myself lucky I hadn't gotten around to buying that plain version yet.

Shockies are always nice to have.

The cloak is packed in there too, you can see it hanging on the pod

Hmmm ... I bet this is the same Yoda that's coming in the Geonosis wave....

I can't believe Hasbro didn't put all those extra peg warmers of Mas to good use and include him... Oh well, good for us!!

If we get #41 Shockies, I might be game for it. Might have to have make a Imperial Rehabilitation Center Landing Pad diorama then.

As for Palpy... ugh... perhaps we could make customs of drunk cantina patrons out of it.
