Who is Commander Bow?  Anyway I think these 2 packs sound much better than I thought they were gonna be.  Well a few of them at least.  I'll take the Neyo and trooper with the bikes, Emperor with Shocktrooper (just for another shocky), and maybe some others.  Of course it will depend upon what they look like and the price.

He is the commander of the 501st after Appo's death on Kashyyyk. The upcoming TSC Appo should really be called Bow. ::) My hopes:
Yoda (VOTC re-pack w/ Saber) & Kashyyyk Trooper (TSC re-pack)
Obi-Wan Kenobi (Pilot re-paint,soaked) & Utapua Clone (TSC re-pack)
Palpatine (Evo re-hash w/ New Head) & Shocktrooper (SITS re-pack)
Mace Windu (30 A re-pack) & Galactic Marine (30 A re-paint w/ Purple Deco)
Darth Vader (New,SA) & Commander Bow (TSC Appo re-pack)
Anakin Skywalker (Evo re-paint w/ Sith eyes) & Airborne Trooper (30 A re-paint,BF II 501st Sniper deco)
Since there hasn't been any Appo or Appo's Troops they have to be new. I may AB the Trooper.

I read "Dark Lord" and was confused a bit since Appo was in the book. I thought Appo bought it at the Temple when Jedi Lucas slashed him down. He was the one who stopped Bail, right?

Zett Jukassa slashed Appo but he survived. He ended up be decapitated by Jedi Master Roan Shryneon Kashyyyk.

Darth Vader (ROTS #11 repack) and Commander Bow (TSC Appo repack)

Unfortunately this will probably happen as Bow is just a different charcter with the same look. And the Vader will either be the ROTS sculpt or the 500th Vader sculpt. I don't see them using the Evo one as he's ROTJ.

Thanks for that info, MetalJedi. I read Dark Lord and don't recall reading Appo surviving Zett's attack there, so I thought it was weird he was still around (though he is a clone). Where can I find more about that?

Now to be on topic... These 2-packs, I feel, are just going to be straight repacks except for Neyo who is new... and he is packed with a vehicle just so anyone who wants him has to by the bike as well.  ::) Yes, I guess it's apparent that I don't like this idea.  ;) I would prefer getting an SA Stass Allie instead.

I'll definitely be buying a case or two of these 2 packs through Entertainment Earth.  Although, if the figures like the lightning shooting EIII Palps start to pile up, I'll quickly rethink my strategy.

Time for another cynical "What Would Be Nice vs. What We Will Get" rant!

Yoda & Kashyyyk Trooper Order 66 2 Pack

WHAT WOULD BE NICE:  An actual new, SA Yoda and a new SA Kashyyyk Trooper
WHAT WE WILL GET:  ROTS Yoda #3 and TSC BARC Trooper

Saleucami Speeder Bike Assault Team
Commander Neyo: Clone Trooper, helmet & weapon
Saleucami Trooper: Clone Trooper, helmet & weapon


WHAT WOULD BE NICE:  Totally new sculpts of each figure that would fit on the BARC Speeder bikes.
WHAT WE WILL GET:  Repaints of the AT-TE Gunner who won't fit on the BARC Speeder bikes.

Obi-Wan Kenobi and Utapau Clone Trooper Order 66 2 Pack

Well, I think this one will hold no surprises.  The Utapau Obi-Wan from wave one and the 2006 TSC Utapau Clone will probably be this, which isn't bad even though most of us already have them (or will have them by that point).

Emperor and Shock Commander Order 66 2 Pack

WHAT WOULD BE NICE:  Totally new SA Senate Duel Palpatine and slightly damaged Shocktrooper from SITS pack (using the 41 Clone body)
WHAT WE WILL GET:  ROTS Palpatine (yet again) and ROTS Shocktrooper repaint.

Mace Windu and Galactic Marine Order 66 2 Pack

WHAT WOULD BE NICE:  30th Anniversary Mace Windu (the SA one coming in 2007) and repack of the Galactic Marine
WHAT WE WILL GET:  ROTS Mace Windu (yet again) and a badly repainted Snowtrooper

Darth Vader and Commander Bow Order 66 2 Pack

WHAT WOULD BE NICE:  If this wasn't even released
WHAT WE WILL GET:  ROTS Vader and ROTS Tactical Ops Trooper with a pauldron

Anakin Skywalker and Airborne Trooper Order 66 2 Pack

WHAT WOULD BE NICE:  Evolutions ROTS Anakin with Sith Eyes and soft goods cloak and 30th Anniversary Airborne Trooper in Battlefront 2 colors
WHAT WE WILL GET:  ROTS #2 Anakin with regular eyes and 30th Anniversary Airborne Trooper painted a ridiculous shade of blue

I'd also be willing to bet that Hasbro, in their infinite wisdom, doesn't ship the Commander Neyo and Saleucami Clone Trooper until the final wave, at which point the first two waves (which will both include multiples of the sure-to-be-subpar Vader and Bow set) will be warming the pegs to a degree that Neyo and his troops will be nigh impossible to locate.

I'm sure the majority of these, if not all, will probably be repacks.  I guess, looking at the quality of the ROTS Jedi figures - and for the most part, clones - they could still be pretty nice.  Sure, its figures most of us already have, but if it takes the place of "Greatest Battles/Heroes and Villains" assortments (except for that rumored fan's choice assortment), I'd rather see these.  The clones are the only real big sellers in the current assortments, and if they want to stick an SA Jedi with the clones, I guess there could be worse ideas.  The ROTS Jedi figures, along with Pilot Obi and Evolutions Anakin, are all very well done and pretty much super articulated - and, although they might not be as interested anymore, I think that would be a pretty cool 2 pack to get if you were a kid - a Jedi and a clone.  I'm interested to get some more details on these (and hopefully pics).

As with most repacks, I'm sure the packaging will be the highlight.
