EE has these up for preorder however pegwarmers are included in this case. You think Hasbro would just send out Force Unleashed figures at that time due to the hold back.

http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=HS87500L

1x Imperial Evo Trooper (#0809),
1x Imperial Jumptrooper (#0810),
1x Maris Brood (#0811),
1x Battle-Damaged Darth Vader (#0812),
1x Rahm Kota (#0813),
1x Emperor's Shadow Guard (#0814),
1x Juno Eclipse (#0815),
1x Biggs Darklighter (X-Wing Pilot, #3014),
1x C-3PO with Salacious Crumb (#3030),
1x Spirit of Anakin Skywalker (#3045),
1x Clone Trooper (7th Legion, #3049),
1x Jango Fett with Poncho (#3057).

I am quite puzzled by this case pack-out. I would have thought that they could have put together a case like this:

2x Imperial Evo Trooper (#0809)
2x Imperial Jumptrooper (#0810)
1x Maris Brood (#0811)
2x Battle-Damaged Darth Vader (#0812)
1x Rahm Kota (#0813)
2x Emperor's Shadow Guard (#0814)
2x Juno Eclipse (#0815)

This would have made A LOT more sense. Vader is always popular. Collectors are going to want multiples of the troopers, shadow guard and Juno. The unique Jedi being 1-per-case would help them sell well which seems to be a slight challenge for Jedi that were not in the movies.

I'm hoping that there will be a revision wave that is more in line with the counts I have listed above.

Ouch! That case ratio hurts, it almost makes me thinl twice on the preorder. any early 2007 figure should be put to rest. Wave 7.5 & 8 I can see.

On a separate note, I want to know when NFC is going to have Wave 1 & Wave 2 of 2008 up for pre-order. They are behind and I am ready to order these despite the crappy case ratio.

Well this news of the case assortment has saved me some money.

I really think these figs are going to be EASY to find. I'm certainly not mad troop building on these. Maybe 5 for the troopers, but no more. One each of Maris, Kota and BD Vader, and perhaps a few Junos (extras for customs). But that's it. Not worth it to get a case of them, when at least a third of the assortment  are figures I won't want.

I preordered two cases of Wave 1 from www.dnstoys.com... don't think I'll do the same for Force Unleashed with this ratio... I hate it.

I hear you. It would only be good if you made a whole bunch of customs. Hey wait a sec!

This case ratio is rather puzzling. Hopefully the revisions will be better.

Good point.  Maybe that will convince me to go ahead and preorder... but I'm not sure... I've got a lot less customizing time these days.

Juno Eclipse Force Unleashed
« Reply #117 on: December 29, 2007, 12:21 PM »
I just got my Juno Eclipse figure from a supplier in Hong Kong. I noticed her gloves are not fully painted. The back of her hands is skin colored. Does anyone know if this intentional or just a painting mistake?

Well, it might be the type of glove she wheres in the video game. A glove with an open back would kind of make sense to me, as I believe Juno is a shuttle pilot so she probably wouldn't want her hands to get overly hot when she is flying. She would also not want her hands to get too sweaty and stinky if she wants to become "friends" with that Secret Apprentice character.

As for the figure, Hasbro probably did not want to sculpt detailed gloves, so they just painted the flesh color on like the wounds on the 2006 TSC Padme Amidala figure.


EDIT: Yup, I think the gloves should have an open skin part:

Too bad she didn't end up looking like your picture. It's a much more interesting figure.
