Those and a repacked Scorch would be good as a 4-pack, but it would probably end up as a $75 EE Exclusive.

I'm sure an exclusive 4-pack based on the game squad will be coming somewhere, sooner or later.

I'd be cool with some repainted Scorch figures, but tons of people would complain about how "Hasbro noticed how their fans hated the lack of knees on Scorch, how could they be such idiots as to not give the rest of the squad knees??" or "I hate Hasbro for no irrelevant reason".




I seem to see that 2nd one a lot these days. ;)

I'm among the crowd that wouldn't really want the set without new legs...  Upper body on the figure is great, but from the waist down Scorch was a weak action figure.  No knee joints on figures, especially at these prices, is pretty obnoxious these days...  A 4-pack of the "team" is bound to be overpriced as it is, so utlizing the current sculpt + new legs wouldn't really hurt things...

Of course I don't look at lacking articulation as irrelevant...  It's probably the most important aspect of action figures to me.  Other lines have blown past Hasbro's standards, so it'd be great to see them set the bar a little higher...  especially on army builders like these.

I'd love to see a 4-pack of the Commandos. Maybe even a villians pack from Commando as well. They could choose from:
Geonosian Warrior-make SA, even reuse Sun Fac mold for this one??
Geonosian Elite
Geonosian Drone
Trandoshan Heavy Merc
Trandoshan Mercenary
Trandoshan Slaver
Battle Droid-with GOOD plastic, TPM mold
Super Battle Droid with GOOD plastic.
Grievous Magna Droid
Advanced Dwarf Spirder Droid

Half of those the molds are already made, but its the other half (Trandoshans, Geo Elite, etc) that I'd want first.
