The only one that is a bit iffy is the Dooku... the regular ROTS version might top it.

But these are VOTC quality!

I'm thrilled that these Evolutions packs will contain figures of VOTC quality!

Finally some nice PT product.

Now we DEFINITELY need an Evolutions Padme set!

Yep - I agree.  I think everyone is going to be damn pleased with these.  If they're not, well I don't know what in the hell people want then.

Padme would be such a great choice.  There's several outfits that would be great for her... maybe:

EPI - Senate

EPII - Arena Battle

EPIII - whatever outfit she's in the most (besides the one that's out already)

I agree totally, these just look awesome.  I can't wait to get a hold of these, and hopefully they ship these so there are plenty to go around.  You know they will be hot sellers.  The Stormie/Clone pack is top notch, and it is great to get some nice, neutral, articulated versions of Anakin...they all look nice.  The Vader looks like they tried to go with all cloth (even on his chest), but maybe I'm wrong.  If it turns out strange, we always have the VOTC (and numerous other) versions to fall back on.  The "Sith" pack looks nice, with Dooku probably being the weakest of the bunch.  Still looks nice though, and I'm satisfied with the ROTS version anyways.  The Palpatine looks pretty cool, and with a cloth robe, and this is the first time in a long time I've been excited about a Maul figure.  All in all, the sets look great, hopefully they will be easy to locate.  I haven't heard, are they a retailer exclusive, or available everywhere?  If they are smart...everywhere.  I really hope this line continues, I'd definitely like to see an Obi-Wan set made so we can get some nice VOTC quality versions of AOTC and ROTS Obi, and a Padme set would be nice too.  Good stuff, thanks for the links to the pics too.

Obi Wan Kenobi... what a great set they could make.  EPI, EP3, EPIV is would I would choose.

Hmmm.... some other ideas.... bangs head on desk.....

Luke is pretty obvious, and they could probably pull something off with Han.  Especially if the for the ANH version they made them both Stormtrooper ones.  Nobody would be able to pass those up... nobody!   :)

I can't believe that I'm going to say this, but it would be nice if they would do color/rank variants on the Clone sets (equally packed in a solid case of Clones of course, which would also be sold for retail value at websites). 

Just looking at the individual options, we've got:

Episode II Clone: Blue, Green, Red, Yellow
Episode II CC: Red, Green, Orange, Yellow
Episode IV ST: Orange, Black, White, Grey

If there was some way that Hasbro could do this where a case of six would have two of each set, and it would ship in an assortment all its own, this could be a very cool concept.  As it is though, Hasbro still can't grasp simple case assortment logic ten years in (why a Super Battle Droid is packed at anything more than 1 per case in anything past the first case period is a mystery to me), so this would be asking too much of them.

That would be wonderful if they'd do something like that.

Yeah, it makes no sense... they seem to produce so many more of the non-army builder figures... then when they decide to product more of an army-builder, it's something people don't like as much... it's a no brainer - the demand for Clones and Stormtroopers is almost endless in the Star Wars collector market.

Jeff just called me, these I guess are AMAZING

Super Articulated galore! "Even Jesse James was happy"

I guess they include Super Articulated Maul, Clone Troopers, a New Sandtrooper, Anakin Episode II and III, Dooku, Emperor

Jeff was absolutely GUSHING

Indeed they are amazing...

Ball joints all over the place and 5 helmets for 3 different clones!

The Sandtrooper is a step above and beyond the vOTC Stormtrooper.



Amazing! :)

Yes, those 3 troopers looked fantastic in the display case.  I can not wait for those sets.  Of course it will be hard to find them since Hasbro will probably go conservative on the rations per case. 

It would be interesting to see if they will make color variations.

I'm glad Hasbro went with the gold Ep3 clone instead of red again. Kudos for not taking the easy way out.

And I'm kinda glad the Ep2 clone is gold because I don't have the non-animated version of this color. However ... it's not a white trooper so now I can't army build. Though $19.99 isn't conducive to army building in the first place. Assuming I can ever find more than one. ::)

Undecided on the Anakin and Sith sets. I only need so many Mauls and Vaders, after all.

Luke is pretty obvious, and they could probably pull something off with Han.  Especially if the for the ANH version they made them both Stormtrooper ones.  Nobody would be able to pass those up... nobody!   :)

I would. ;) But then I'm a contrarian through and through. :P
