I'm not too excited about this pack either. 

I'd go for an all VOTC Stormtrooper pack though!  Or make that 10 of them...

I'm definitely excited!


So, are these all SA or somewhat SA?

I think that a couple are SA, and a couple are straight repacks of the Clone Wars ARC Trooper.

I can see why people would be excited and looking forward to this, but for whatever reason I never really liked ARC Troopers.

That could be because trying to pose them sucks butt.  I have about 6 or 7 of these guys just because I got lucky at WM with the value packs way back when.  Getting them in any sort of pose is a waste of time.  I have a few of mine hanging from the cables in the back of the CW gunship.  Also the articulation is a nightmare.

You are never alone when there's a clone.

The ARC's sculpt was pretty weak but I'd take the SA's re-released in the basic line in various flavors. :)  The "ARC" is an untapped well for Hasbro I think.  The first figures sucked and still sold fairly well so I'd think SA ones in a variety of colors for different theaters of operation in the war might go over well with collectors.

I'm excited for the set, but the 3 ARC repacks are going to have me buying only one of this set...  2 SA's are nice, but not worth multiple purchases.

The 1st (my revised ship date) has come and gone with no word. But since they're starting to hit TRU, they have to be getting ready to ship.

Dont count on it.  Last night my order said it was being processed and I could not cancel.  This morning my order is once again open ???

This pack would have been better if they substituted one of the blue ARCs for a ARC Pilot. Passing on this, saving my $20 for the CW Mace JSF.

I agree, this pack needed a pilot for some balance.

I don't know if I'll be buying this now...at least, for a while. With all these new Endor and Naboo figures coming out soon, I don't know if I'll be able to afford buying this, too. :-\

Picked up some of these today at my TRU. I really like how hasbro updated the detailing on the arms of the arcs( the yellow on the red arc's arms and the green on the blue arcs' arms. The mini-gun is really awesome ;D

Anyone notice the Toysrus website on these?  No Longer Available!  So for all you people like myself who ordered these months ago we may be screwed.

The TRU.com separation from Amazon.com can't come soon enough. Amazon has screwed up on every single SW order I've had with them since ROTS hit. My order has a new revised shipping date of July 2.  ::)

These have been hitting locally but I haven't had the time to pursue them. I'm hoping they'll continue to ship for a while and I can resume a search once my move is over.
