Why would anyone even want the first version?  The only thing it has to do with Mace, is that it's black.  And the likeness stops there.

But all black people look alike, so it's kind of a wash, isn't it?

(I would say "just kidding," so that I don't upset any black people, but then again, black people aren't dorky enough to collect Star Wars toys, so there aren't any black people here anyway, right?)

Right.

Anyway, here are some more details about Wave 1 (and the coins) from Galactic Hunter's Q & A:

Is the upcoming Galactic Marine's helmet removable? Are the flames on the 2007 Super Battle Droid removable, and are his hips ball-joints? (GH, 10/6/06)

The Galactic Marine's helmet is in fact removable. The flames on the Super Battle Droid are removable, as they are snap-on parts.  The Super Battle Droid is new and super-articulated with a ball joint head and waist, insert molded shoulders, elbows, and knees…but the hips are not ball joint.

What type of material are the 2007 Collector Coins made from? (Metal or plastic?) Will the Collector Coin Album be available at big box stores? (GH, 10/6/06)

They are aluminum - the exact same material the previous coins were made from. We wanted to stay true to the roots of the coin program and make them from the same material and to be the same size.  There are some new details for the 30th Anniversary, though — some coin details that are pretty cool and unique.  The figure/album will be available everywhere from 1/1 to approximately 3/24.

I actually don't think the SBD's look too exciting...maybe just 3 for me...

Thanks for the heads up... I hope Rick comes through because I'd love to save $25+ buying my two cases from him and not EE.   ;)

Nice! Actually those figures should come packed together that way.

Yah, that looks much better than that pic with R2 balancing on the standing SBD's shoulders.

I may sound like a total dork, but are the SBD's flames removable?  ???

The answer (taken from Hasbro's weekly Q&A) is only a few posts above...


The flames on the Super Battle Droid are removable, as they are snap-on parts.
