We never saw them in the movies.
The pilot who shot down Plo Koon he's different from the pliots we've seen so far. That's all in the movies besides the red clothes clone in AOTC.
There's still a ton from EU:
Scuba Clones
Black Armor Republic Commandos
White Armor Republic Commandos
Jet Trooper
Probally some other crap EU spits out too.

We asked about a V-Wing pilot over at The Jawa in the Q&A's, but got shot down.  Hasbro said the following:

Quote
However, we do not have a V-Wing pilot slated to go with the V-Wing as of this time.  Eventually, it will be a figure we'll do but we do not have a timetable.  Patience on that one

And regarding this...
We never saw them in the movies.

Hasbro did produce a V-Wing Pilot for the Attacktix game.  And I believe there are illustrations of a V-Wing Pilot in The Incredible Cross Sections book's entry for the V-Wing.

Hmmm...pass, pass and pass.  There's $40 saved! :)

The other three were:

Yoda and Kashyyyk Trooper (Green)
Emperor and Shock Commander (Red)
Darth Vader and Commander Bow (Black)

Another triple pass (although that Shock Commander might be tempting)

Oh my good God what a total bunch of garbage.  I had some high hopes for these after seeing the Neyo 2 pack, which is very good.  But these 3 are just flat out heinous...

Mace/Galactic Marine -  The Mace sucks.  He's 1/2" too short at the very least and has monkey arms.  The sculpt is awful.  Face it, it's a piece of ****.  The Galactic Marine is nice (and I'll be assembling a platoon of 36 movie painted versions on regular basic cards), but what's up with the color?  Was he fighting on a planet where Clorox rained from the heavens? 2 figures, neither of which were involved in "Order 66," as this wave is titled.


Obi Wan/AT RT driver - I must have missed those AT RT drivers on Utapau.  What version of Obi Wan is that, the battler that came with the grievous guard?  Yikes.


Anakin/Airborne trooper -  This Anakin sucks.  The Evolutions version is the only one that's worth a damn.  The airborne trooper is good, but damn it I must have missed them at the Temple Raid.


 ???   ???   ???   ???   ???   ???

More money saved I guess.

The worst part of this is, I just know it, some of y'all will be hammering down Target's stockroom door for these, clutching the DPCI numbers, waiting breathlessly for the stock boy then running to the register in ecstacy to plunk down $40 for 3 crap items.  Which is why Hasbro keeps pushing this on us in the first place.  At least there's not even a single figure among these 6 that I care to purchase, so I'll be spared the $13 for a single figure I may have wanted in a 2 pack.

Some folks just know when to post a rumor...  ;D

Very interesting - I love that they are Target exclusive instead of Wally or TRU - MUCH easier for me to grab via the DPCI trick.   :)

It's hard to believe that you're even going to need it.  It's true that you will, but hard to believe.  Such poor taste in quality (and low standards) we have as a whole, we collectors.
