If I ever see a Darktrooper I may pick one up. I've always voted against him, except maybe twice.

i voted against him only when he was up against oola. he beat her like 95% to 5% sadly, which really sucked for me. i wanna see oola again.

The Darktrooper is definitely kind of ridiculous in terms of the modern figure aesthetic.  It's much more like an old video game boss than anything else.  I think the only appeal to the figure is that it was HTF.

Not a bad selection considering they're all repacks.  How about those SA shocktroopers and 501st?  Nice nod to the army builders.

On the flipside, good luck finding all of the variations of the officers and clones...that's going to be a bitch for carded collectors.


No VOTC stormie I see...I guess the re-release of the VTSC Biker Scout and VOTC Boba Fett kind of throws Hasbro's rule out regarding never seeing VOTC molds used in their exact same form in other lines...kind of makes me feel like a sap for paying $10+ for them originally.

Not too bad I guess, but not exceptionally exciting to me I guess.  I was kind of hoping for a few more OT figures, and a few less of the figures that were in the Greatest Battles assortments this year already (R2, Yoda, Grievous, Obi-Wan, Anakin, etc.)  The Pilot Obi is great, but I wish they could put the Evolutions Anakin in there instead of the "#2" sculpt again.  Again, a lot of ROTS figures we've seen a lot of.  I think they could have handled to put a decent Luke or Han in there, unless we'll get our fill from the basic line.  They'd probably just stick Cantina Han in there again anyways, although a VOTC Han would have been great.  Anyways, for repacks I guess it is fine.  I'm glad we're seeing figures like VOTC Boba Fett and the Scout Trooper released again, because I'd like to get a couple more of those.  It looks good for army builders.

I'll probably be picking up these....

VOTC Boba Fett
VTSC Biker Scout
Clone Trooper (AOTC SA White)
Clone Trooper (SA 501st)
Shocktrooper (SA)
RA-7
R4-I9
TC-14
Darktrooper

And maybe a couple others (extras mainly).

They've already explained that he was out of the running because he's in the basic figure line in '07.

I agree though, not a bad list at all. Lots of army builders should equal lots of sales. I'm glad I've got most of my troops already. The only one's I'll need to buy from that entire list are the Pit droids since I don't have them and the Imperial Officers to bring my officer platoon up to full strenght.

Whew, judging by what Curto says, it will just be 4 variants for the Pit Droids, not 9 like I originally feared:

On another note - Holy Crap!  As a sucker carded collector, with all the running changes on these, I'll be buying:

2007 Saga Legends Darth Vader (Saga-013)
2007 Saga Legends Darth Maul (Ep1 Pack-In)
2007 Saga Legends Yoda (RotS #03)
2007 Saga Legends R2-D2 (RotS #48)
2007 Saga Legends General Grievous RotS #09)
2007 Saga Legends C-3PO (Saga-017)
2007 Saga Legends Clone Trooper (RotS #41)
2007 Saga Legends Shocktrooper (Battle Pack)
2007 Saga Legends Battle Droid 2-Pack (Tan)
2007 Saga Legends Battle Droid 2-Pack (Maroon)
2007 Saga Legends Battle Droid 2-Pack (Blaster Damage)
2007 Saga Legends Battle Droid 2-Pack (Lightsaber Damage)
2007 Saga Legends Clone Trooper (Clone Wars 03-50)
2007 Saga Legends Boba Fett (VOTC)
2007 Saga Legends Obi-Wan Kenobi (RotS #55)
2007 Saga Legends Chewbacca (Saga 02-38)
2007 Saga Legends Anakin Skywalker (RotS #02)
2007 Saga Legends Saesee Tiin (RotS #30)
2007 Saga Legends Destroyer Droid (RotS #44)
2007 Saga Legends Clone Trooper (new - SA 501st)
2007 Saga Legends Leia Boussh (Saga-001)
2007 Saga Legends Sandtrooper (Evolutions - White Pauldron)
2007 Saga Legends White Pit Droid 2-Pack w/Toolbox #1
2007 Saga Legends Brown Pit Droid 2-Pack w/Toolbox #1
2007 Saga Legends Brown Pit Droid 2-Pack w/Toolbox #2
2007 Saga Legends Red Pit Droid 2-Pack w/Toolbox #2
2007 Saga Legends Imperial Officer (Head #1)
2007 Saga Legends Imperial Officer (Head #2)
2007 Saga Legends Imperial Officer (Head #3)
2007 Saga Legends Darktrooper
2007 Saga Legends Clone Commander (Evolutions - Ep3 Grey)
2007 Saga Legends Clone Officers (EE Set - Red)
2007 Saga Legends Clone Officers (EE Set - Yellow)
2007 Saga Legends Clone Officers (EE Set - Blue)
2007 Saga Legends Clone Officers (EE Set - Green)
2007 Saga Legends Scout Trooper (VTSC)
2007 Saga Legends TC-14
2007 Saga Legends RA-7 (Sandcrawler)
2007 Saga Legends R4-I9


That's right, 39  - THIRTY-NINE carded figures in this line.  And that is only counting the variations that we know about know (you know there will be more once they are released).

Add in the fact that Hasbro has already confirmed plans for 60 figures in the main figure line and that is almost ONE HUNDRED basic figures again next year.   ::)

I guess I'll kiss that $1000 goodbye right now.   :-*

I think I'm going to save myself a lot of trouble and just get the troopers and battle droids, that is if I can find them all.  Also, since I missed it, I'm going to have to pick up the VOTC Boba Fett too.

2007 Saga Legends Shocktrooper (Battle Pack) X2
2007 Saga Legends Battle Droid 2-Pack (Tan)
2007 Saga Legends Battle Droid 2-Pack (Maroon)
2007 Saga Legends Battle Droid 2-Pack (Blaster Damage)
2007 Saga Legends Battle Droid 2-Pack (Lightsaber Damage)
2007 Saga Legends Clone Trooper (Clone Wars 03-50) X2
2007 Saga Legends Boba Fett (VOTC)
2007 Saga Legends Clone Trooper (new - SA 501st) X2
2007 Saga Legends Sandtrooper (Evolutions - White Pauldron) X2
2007 Saga Legends Clone Commander (Evolutions - Ep3 Grey)
2007 Saga Legends Clone Officers (EE Set - Red) X2
2007 Saga Legends Clone Officers (EE Set - Yellow) X2
2007 Saga Legends Clone Officers (EE Set - Blue) X2
2007 Saga Legends Clone Officers (EE Set - Green) X2

So not as bad as Jeff, but I'm in for at least 22 and I know that I'll be buying all of next year's Battle Packs as well.  Hopefully I will be able to cut back on the basic line quite a bit...

So after looking at the list it looks like i will be getting these:

Darth Maul (Episode I coin)
Shock Trooper (Episode III coin)
Clone Trooper (Episode II coin - Clone Wars)
501st Clone Trooper (Episode III coin)
Sandtrooper (Episode IV coin)
Pit Droid (white 1, brown 1, brown 2, orange 2 - Episode I coin)
Imperial Officer (1, 2, 3 - Episode V coin)
Dark Trooper (Expanded Universe coin)
Clone Commander (Episode III coin)
Clone Troop Officer (red, yellow, green, blue - Episode II coin)
RA-7 (Episode IV coin)
R4-I9 (Episode IV coin)

Now being a fan of the coins, you can see i was keeping track of which had which. From the looks of it i think the Biker Scout is the only one with a ROTJ coin so i will probably buy him just to get the coin.

The year hasn't even started yet, so I'm sure they'll crank it out at least three or four more times next year after this.  What got me was how the other site claimed it made a decent pilot figure.  In what ship?  The one where he stands up so his elongated crotch doesn't prohibit proper seat position that also includes harnesses for his arms so they don't fly all around the cockpit?    ::)

So, out of the list, I'll definitely be buying:

Shock Trooper (SA Version) (x a few)
Battle Droid (Geonosis) (x a few)
Battle Droid (Naboo) (x many)
Battle Droid (Blaster Damage) (x many)
Battle Droid (Lightsaber Damage) (x many)
Clone Trooper (AOTC SA White) (x many)
501st Legion Clone Trooper (x many)
Evolutions Sandtrooper (x 1)
Pit Droids (in all colors and varieties)
Imperial Officers (x 2)
Biker Scout (x many)
Coruscant Clone Commander (x many if he still comes with the extra regular Clone belt so I can make some moderately SA Coruscant Gray Clones)

Everything else is going to be left behind by yours truly.  :)
