Odds are the figure on the card are production samples sans the coins.

That would lead me to believe Jesse's images (above) are hand made protos.

Regardless, it's a step in the right direction - we have a basic stormie (kids will eat these up) on the pegs for the first time since, what, the OTC release?

Yeah, and that's definitely a good thing - regardless of how this helmet turns out.  I'd still like to see OT troops, like the Stormtrooper, Snowtrooper, and Biker Scout, available on the pegs as often as we've seen clones over the past 3 years.

Since we are getting some large pack-ins this year, it'd be nice to get a nice Speeder Bike along with a carded VTSC Biker Scout

That's a great idea.  I really hope we do eventually see a new Speeder Bike, and if so, Hasbro is smart enough to at least put out a basic carded VTSC Biker Scout alongside it this year.  This would be a good year to do it actually, since that figure is set to be released in the "Saga Legends" assortment.

I've had notification that my wave 3 will be with me in the next 7 days or so and interestingly it may be coming with a colour variant of both the Galactic Marine and Airborne Trooper

With the all new SA Biker Scout (Kudos to you Hasbro, that's some super fine work you did), fans are now anxious to know if an all new Speederbike is in the works? The original's sculpt is detailed, however the bike isn't particularly sturdy and it's a bit oversized. A smaller (properly scaled) bike with maybe a clear stand for a hovering effect would be incredibly popular given how many Biker Scouts a lot of us own I'd imagine. (JD, 7/26/06)

Interesting idea. We don't have a new one in the works, but if we do a new bike, we'll take your feedback into account.

Maybe that bike'll happen?  :)  It's obviously been on my wishlist for a  while, haha.

I don't like the sound of that. Where did you hear that?

I second the question. Where did that info come from?

I'm def getting Biggs--for novelty value, since he's from a cut scene.

Luke's headsculpt is complete garbage, although the body is fine. But I just realized he comes with a vaporator, so now I have to get him. :-\

Mayyyyyybe Chewie--the figure is a smashing rendition of the concept art, but he isn't something that I can't live without. Although I'm toying with getting one and trying to do a headswap with a normal Wookiee, to get a Wookiee warrior with vest, ammo belts, etc.

Jawa looks great but I can't get everything I want.

So:

1x Biggs
1x Luke
maybe 1x Chewie
Pass on the others.

I would not be surprised if Hasbro releases these different color Clones.  Same thing happened with the ROTS line when the Green Clone Commander, Black Pilot and Shocktrooper mysteriously showed up.  They came out of nowhere and most thought they were customs,  since pics never leaked.

Here you go folks -

Maybe it's just battle damage.  Not too much else makes sense methinks.  Unless they put Target Order 66 colors in Wave 3.

That thought crossed my mind, but I have a feeling they'll do something like the Shocktrooper version of an airborne and the 501st version of the Marine.

^Agreed. Or a shocktrooper marine.

At this rate we'll soon have every legion variant on every sculpt (AT-RT driver, marine, airborne, BARC, etc.) I think the only one that hasn't been tapped at all is the BARC trooper--we've only gotten him in the camo.
