Uh, when are these due out?  I have to plan a trip Stateside please.

"Spring 2006"

I don't think we have a better idea yet.  They are not in the current Target SW aisle set-up though, so they may not resurface until the next toy reset.  Or, at the rate things are going this year they could be here soon...  :-\

Yay ::)  Thanks Jeff.  I'm down in Illinois in the last week in March, but that might not be the right timing.

Appearing soon on a Target shelf near you will be the exclusive Skirmish in the Senate Battle Pack. Click on the thumbnail above for a sneak preview, including a closer look at the star of the set - the super-articulated Shocktrooper (which is, in fact, a repaint of the RotS #41 sculpt).

Hot digitty. I'm all over that.

Now if we can get a carded 501st appology figure with the SA sculpt I'll be happy... for a moment.

I want two. Knowing my local Target and how hot Clones are, I'll be lucky to even see one.

Okay, maybe I'm a bit confused here but it looks as if Palpy is using his force lightning on Yoda's cloak.  Suppose it can't work too well if Yoda isn't in it?  Maybe he's using some sort of force dry cleaning or something?

Yeah I gotta find people wanting Senate Pods and NOW.  :)  The figures though, are "eh"...  I never got that Palpy figure I'd get him cheaper later, so I'll take it...  Yoda, I can BS that into customizing fodder I think, as it is generic...  The pod I could give 2 ***** about honestly so I'm all about selling those to people who want htem.

The Clones though...  Oh Glorious Clones.

Those are some fantastic early shots.  Can't wait to pick this set up hopefully in some extra quantity if I can afford it.  Nice to have confirmation of which Clone they used too.

That's a nifty figure, and ya get two.  Not too bad a deal there for certain.

I think most will look past the Palpy/Yoda easily and while I don't care for it, I'm sure most will enjoy the Senate Pods.  Hell who wouldn't dig displaying most of their Senator figures in that thing?  The Clones are almost icing on the cake then.  Nice set.

I'll get one of these solely for the Senate pod. (I'd love to have tons of pods, but I doubt I'll have the shelf space or the money, etc. etc.).

I don't have OR need these versions of Yoda and Palps, so getting them isn't a dealbreaker either way.

But I don't need the shockies. Yes, you read that right. I have the #6 shockie repaint; add in the upcoming mini-Unleashed shockies and I'll have satisfied my needs. I'm trying to cut back, and you gotta start somewhere.

So I'll end up either buying the pod off someone, or getting the set and finding somebody to unload the shockies on, thus recouping $8 or so to apply towards other figures I want more. (JJ, you may be hearing from me later, if nothing flies locally.)

already sent you a PM Nate!


I hope these things are as plentiful as hickies on prom night. I managed to get 5 of the Target attack on Coruscant set last year, and still love that piece! Easy customizing fodder, loads of troops, and a very decent price. It is sets like these that make me give the 13.00 Grievous the one finger salute (until he's on clearance of course).

Thanks for the excellent photo's photography department! That's be about $100 if I want to get 10 SA 41's. :(
