If it is a Battlepack, this is what the perfect combination would be:

3x Galactic Marine w/ Heavy DC-15 And DC-15 Rifle Each
2x ROTS Battle Droid w/ Battle Droid Blaster

This is what Hasbro will give us:

2x E1 Ki-Adi-Mundi w/ Lightsaber
2x POTF2 Lobots
1x Galactic Marine w/ E-11

 :P

LOL OMG thats hilarious

It should NOT be part of a battle pack. no matter what the BP is, Hasbro always screws it up. It should be a single carded igure, and that would make everyone happy. And, this is probably the 2nd most wished-for clone ever (1st being Cody). If they rip us off like they did on Cody and Scorch, I will be furious >:(

So, SA would be fine with me. I could care less about a removable helmet.

It might be cool if it was this battle pack:

1 x ROTS Ki-Adi Mundi
1 x Commander Bacara
2 x Galactic Marines
1 x Octuptarra Droid

Over at TheJawa someone suggested making two packs. Something like 2/3 evolutions. So it'd be a white clone/ST, BARC Trooper/Biker Scout, Snowtrooper/Galactic Marine.

Of course, living in Holland, my luck will run out. I won't be able to buy them in time, have to resort on eBay, better wait 5 years till prices have dropped and then score some beat up near vintage Galactic Marines.... And I'm being optimistic  ;D

I'm with you though: Hasbro better not mess this one up, like they usually do so well. So no ' action features'  like blowing-in-the-wind face mask or a neat Bacara's rifle laser flash reflection kinda thing. No, full SA, softgoods and removable helmets please.  :)

About that 2-pack Evo idea, I think it's kinda cool, but a lot of us would be stuck with TONS of extra snowtroopers! ;)

Yes Incom, that was me in THIS POST.  I'd like to get SOME recognition for that one. ;D

Yeah but that's actually my intellectual property as I suggested the idea around the time of Attack of the Clones.  I'm glad others such as Nicklab are coming around to my point of view though, hopefully Hasbro will as well.

Yes, that would be the most sensible.

2 x Galactic Marines

I didn't spot the word "basic" in there though...

Yeah, me either.

I'd laugh if they just mean 2.5" Unleashed and/or Titanium stuff.   :P

This guy's amazing.  At the same time he was inventing the internet, he knew about global warming.  Even while Newsweek was crowing about the next ice age 30 years ago, he knew about global warming.  Amazing.

He also knew that a John Kerry figure would someday be made.  He predicted this in 1980 when ESB came out.

No problem, there's no such thing as too many Snowtroopers. Too many puppies, yes, but too many Snowtroopers... no.

If Hasbro's version is as good as Owen's or Incom's Galactic Marine, I'll be sure to buy a few!
