^Agreed on all counts.  I got this set solely for Padme's potential as custom fodder - we need nice generic female bodies.

ACK!  She doesn't have a "neck hole"!!  Solid torso, pop off head with tiny hole in it.  Useless for me (since I have no dremel....even if I did, her body/neck is way too small to try to hollow out...)

Oddly, the new Pirates Elizabeth head fits perfectly, but she is stuck literally "navel gazing" if you put her nogging on there....

Alas.....

Our local Target had this and the Felucia battle packs out on an endcap this weekend, so I was able to pick one up.  Aside from the shortcomings on the Padme figures (specifically articulation-wise), I'm pretty happy to get this set.  I hope the rumors are true and we see a few more "movie-like" sculpts from the Clone Wars series in the line.  The camo droids are larger than I thought they would be for a BP, and it isn't too bad of a set overall.

That pretty much sums up my thoughts on this set too.  To me, it's great to get some sort of new Separatist droids.  There's been such a lack of them from Hasbro... look at the severe lack of stuff we've gotten for the Seps compared to the Republic. 

Have two for now and they are opened up, which is enough.  If these end up on clearance though, I'll be picking up a few more sets.

I have a feeling the Padme will be re-sculpted eventually mainly because it's one of her iconic/popular dresses. (The others being Tatooine/ Handmaiden, Geonosis & Mustafar)

Ditto.  All I want is Padme.

Inadvertant and Spuffy,

If YOU guys buy these and want to sell me the droids...  I'm all ears on that idea.  I could use as many of the Chameleons as I can get if you guys want to do that.

PM me if you're interested...

$9.50 isn't too swift for one though so I'm still being sarcastic...  You get 2, plus R2/3PO and Padme for $20 if you buy the set yourself, so why pay $9.50 or $10 for just one Chameleon Droid?  Hose job is what that is.

Boy!  You guys are easy to please.  Padme's gotta be the crappiest figure they've put out since the crappy 2002 AOTC figures.  Crappy pre-posed crap if you ask me.  The big droids are cool, and are well made, but, man Padme is crap.

Crap! :P

Padme is crappy... at first it didn't both me but for some reason now it does.  I will have to try my hand at customizing/upgrading her someday.  But I'm not sure what parts would work for her.

Droid Factory Padme, graft on the "fur" bits and other costume specifics from Ilum Padme, and of course the head, gloves...  I think her furry boot tops could get grafted to DFC Padme's boots though and look fine.

Then just slap on the cloak... 

The Padme bugs me too.

Tons of Ilum packs around my area, but Felucia's selling well...  I'm surprised.  rehash clones outselling new figures...  Should be good for cheap droids at some point though.
