I'm thinking the clones on the Gunship box:

2 Blue/Gray ARC's
Red ARC
Heavy Gunner
Pilot

That would be cool, but I don't see how that would fit with the "Defense of the Senate" theme.

I see it this way:

For the much rumored Target exclusive "General Windu's Squadron" battle pack, I can see how that would be something really cool like a Mace with 4 Clones (maybe even a few of the Gunship box Clones).

But for this TRU exclusive "Defense of the Senate" Battle Pack, I am totally expecting something lame involving Ep2 or Ep3 Royal Guards and/or dorky Senator figures and/or a Jedi or two.

I guess we shall see soon enough...

I can see it......The ship is EU from the clone wars cartoon series where the clones defended the city of Coruscant-OK well, maybe the paint scheme for the gunship was on a different planet but....if they go by expanded universe/clone wars then I can see it with clones included in a battle pack.

I would rather get the  5 clones pictured with the ship than any pilots, I mean..I HAVE plenty of bantha fodder pilots already!

I hope your wrong Jeffrey! >:(

From the strictest sense, me neither. :P I was thinking along the same lines as DS.

I could too and for $20 that's a set worth having a number of I think...  Count me in because those figs on the GS box looked so sweet.  That...  That would be a bit too ideal, but now I'm hoping it is true.

Any new information on this?  Defense of the Senate... it's got to involve either Jedi, Clone Troopers (hopefully blue) or some sort of Royal Guards, right?

It has got to be the 4 Jedi vs. Palpatine, if you think about it?

You gotta throw at least one clone 41 red shock variant in there to chase those figures down a pack-in piece of hall diorama.  And then I think we have something.
If you vote for me all of your wildest dreams will come true.  Thank you.

I dunno, sometimes their naming gets a little goofy. The previous target exclusive was "Clone attack on Coruscant" which wasn't exactly accurate. The defense of the senate pack could be anything at this point.

Has this set been renamed to "Hunt for General Greivous?"

I sure would like to know so I can place my preorder at Amazon...I know I won't find them at the store locations...

The general guess is that yes, this set is the same as the recently announced Grievous Set, but them again no one knows for sure... :-\
