They'll probably go cheap and just give us that bird that distracts Aayla.

and the bird will probably be the one from the POTF2 Dagobah planet set thingy. (if you know which set im talking about)

Hasbro giving us the bird?  Never, they would never give collectors THE BIRD!

Here's the lineup:

1 x Aayla Secura (ROTS # III/32  Aayla Secura - Jedi Knight)
1 x Clone Commander Bly (ROTS # III/57  Commander Bly - Battle Gear!)
3 x Clone Troopers (from the Clone Trooper - Sandtrooper Evolutions 3-Pack)

Nope, not based on the 4 inches site pic anyhow.

Where you are correct:

1 x Aayla like you said
1 x Bly like you said

And here's what we're getting where you thought it was 3 x Evolutions Felucia grunts:

2 x Bly repainted as grunts (grunt on the far right, and grunt on the far left)
1 x Evolutions 327th Star Corps with removable helmet


In other words, on 2 of the 3 grunts, I can see the white ball joint neck post, and not the removable helmet like in the evolutions version.  Those are Bly (Clone #33) repaints.

You really shouldn't have to ask that question when you're dealing with Hasbro, now should you?  ;)

You may be right.  However we've been lead to believe one thing with Battle Packs and given another before.  Most notably with the Capture of Tantive IV Battle Pack.  So once again, the final product (or Hasbro in the Q&A) will tell us what the real deal is.

It would be very strange for them to change their tooling and paint apps for a figure that's been previously released.  Especially when Hasbro seems to be all about cost cutting wherever possible.

But I guess this lineup leads us to the conclusion that this is going to be a mass retail Battle Pack and not an exclusive.  I had been hopeful that perhaps we would get a 327th Star Corps Clone with a SG kama, ball jointed hips and a Felucia ground beetle.  Oh well.  ::)

Just a follow-up on what I said earlier.  This from 'scum:

"4-inches.de is back again with the first images of the Betrayal on Felucia battle pack, which will include Aayla Secura, Commander Bly, and 3 Star Corps Troopers (2 repainted Clone Commanders and 1 from the Evolutions set.) Click on the thumbnail above for both front and back images."

That is Rebelscum's observation based on the photograph.  Haven't we learned just in the past several weeks that the Battle Pack photos that we've seen were mockups and not production pieces?  People on this forum were incredulous because of the photos of the Tantive IV battle pack, saying that they won't be buying that battle pack because of the paint apps on the Stormtrooper.  Fastforward to Hasbro being asked about it in the Q&A and they say that those were mockup photos and that the production item will feature clean Stormtroopers.

I think that if we really want to know what the packout for this Battle Pack is going to be, then that question should be asked in the Q&A sessions.  Just because Rebelscum says something doesn't make it so.

Exactly. However, it doesn't matter to me if some of those are Bly re-paints or not.

I'm not tore up myself if it's repaints of Bly either...  The removable helmet feature on Clones just somehow doesn't mean a TON to me, though it's neat when you get it sometimes.  That said, the helmet didn't sit well on that particular Clone anyway so if we DON'T get them I'm ok...  The Evo sculpt just wasn't too easy to track down though so getting it would probably be better in a way...  I just don't care though, I think the set's a real army building dream.  I can find a use for Secura figures in customizing too, so this is a plus.

That whole chin hanging from the helmet can get old.
