All they need to do is take the Captain Typho head without the eye patch and put it on the red jumpsuit body. That would be easy for Hasbro. But knowing them if they did it they would just repaint the Naboo Soldier body red.

NOOOO!!!! That would be horrible. But we know Hasbro is prone to shortcuts.   ::)

Wow, potentially 4 army builders in that case. I may buy these amounts:

Marine - 8
Super Battle droid - 9
Stormtrooper - 7
Airborne - 2 or 9 depending on my mood when they hit. I might do what I'm doing with the Mace BP and use the Airbornes as Team leaders.

Bah, take the extra SPD and replace it with 2X McQuarrie Trooper and the case assortment will be better.

Yeah, it's the same sculpt as the Windu Battle Pack clone, but he looks so much nicer in "Utapau Orange".   :)

MMMMMMMMMMMmmmmm pretty orange sherbet...

:)

Yeah this is a must have.  I dig the purple one but this is definitely the one to army build I think.  I'm sort of surprised how Hasbro did the EU deco first on this figure.  Makes me wonder if it wasn't planned for '06 but got pushed into '07 for whatever reason.  I would be sort of surprised if they had done it the other way around from the get-go...  I mean, why not just paint a #33 commander purple then?  It sort of takes some of the surprise of this figure away by having it in another non-film color beforehand.

Anyway, great figure...  He's great in any color...  well almost any.

I think the reason Hasbro announced these will be delayed is that I believe that they are letting retailers sell off the rest of the saga line wave 8,9. Then they will release the new 30th with increased prices. It seems to be maybe after stores have finished inventory as well? We'll see. Have already seen Titanium SW prices rise...it could be an across the board price increase for sw products in the 30th line--I really want to be wrong though,damn.

and this will push like three of the last waves into a place where they will only be available for a couple weeks, like post otc, and retailers will be clearing out for '08's stuf.

Ah, so the Miner does have articulation on the knees.  I did not know that.  It looks as though the SBD does as well...hmmmm.

Already caught those ones Rune, good eye...  Yeah the SBD looks slick with articulation...  I think the shoulders are a ball joint, and perhaps the hips are as well which is cool for sturdiness...  Makes me wonder what they could do with a regular Battledroid ya know? 

The Lava Miner is pretty cool...  I really at first was irked by the hip pose but I was thinking that perhaps that's just how those beings are able to stand too...  They don't stand upright in the film if I recall, and all were hunched like that...  I dunno.  Cool enough figure...  I just wish we'd had a platform for him too.

i dont like the holes in the SBD, very distracting, but otherwise, eh, still pretty cool.
