I have the feeling these will bomb... the only ones that interest me are 3PO and Grievous, and by that time the line might be canceled or those will be hard as hell to get!

Sometimes I wonder why Hasbro makes stuff like this.  I was all for a 3-3/4" scale Unleashed line of 2-pks for $15.00 with a nice display base (which most of you reamed me for) but I guarantee they would be a bigger hit than this.

 :P

Looks like Hasbro attempted some kind of update this AM, but none of the pictures work. 

Looks like they fixed it...

The Sandtrooper looks a little better than I thought it might, but the Bossk... that's the worst face ever.   :-\

No.  Apparently Hasbro is going to start to mix other lines in with the Titanium Series.  There are reports of that Cylon and then some other Galactica and Stargate stuff working it's way into the line as well...

That sandtrooper actually looks pretty cool, and I have a weakness for sandtroopers. Hmm....

Geez I think those two are terrible looking.  They look like drawings to me.  LOL.  Oh well I will see how the IG-88 looks I suppose.

The worst part about these is who are they trying to sell them to?  3-3/4" COllectors already have all of these and what point is buying a preposed metal Bossk for 3 times the price?  As I said, its a beyond stupid idea in a year full of them

I may actually buy Bossk because he's sort of a figure focus of mine...  I mean, Trandoshan's DO gets all da ladies...  Jockin' the Wookiee's and slappin' the ho's, that's livin' Trandoshan style.

That said, man...   Unless there's a removable helmet on the Sandtrooper that reveals someone with the black bodyglove hood on, I can't justify buying it...  Evne then it'd be hard to justify.  Any of these would be...  They're comically weird and a waste of capital that could be going into FRIGGIN' KNEE JOINTS on the basic figures.   >:(

I have to admit that I'm most likely going to pick up the Sandtrooper. It looks pretty nice.

The Fett looked very metallic to me though, I have a feeling Sandie will too, so that kills the Sandtrooper for me.  I too would've picked him up perhaps if he'd have been "realistic" looking in his final form.  I just have a feeling he won't be.

Neat bases with both figures though....  i guess.

And, since the rumor mill was right about Bossk/Sandtrooper being Wave 2, I guess we can expect IG-88 and a Clone Trooper in wave 3. 

I guess so.  Pictures of IG-88 and Clone Trooper (501st Variety) have shown up in the Toy Fair pictures.

IG-88

Man, I don't like this line and I'm not planning on buying it, but IG-88 looks pretty killer...

Oh.  Ok then. 

I guess at that I'll pick up the Cylon, if I see it, simply to have the anomaly in the line and I don't know where else to get a 3.75" Cylon. 

Thanks.
