You know, the more I think about it, the more I realize that the female Imperial, Jedi Samurai, and Shadow Guard are the figures I'm most looking forward to out of the entire 30AC so far.

(Along with the Obi-Wan & Alpha comic pack, but that's in a side line.)

Anyone know when these come out??? I really need those troopers for some projects. I was trying to use modded Clone parts to make a new armor design but those are better than anythin i could have com up with.

No date yet...at least not given to us.  We heard the game was not finished yet and you know how hasbro likes a mass blitz.

And no packaging was shown either. 

They were very proud of the fact that the figure images had not leaked out yet.  Daryl Depreist was practically beaming when he was talking to me about it.

I guess I'm OK with this stuff, the figures all look top notch.  I am disappointed (not really the right term) that they made an EU Black Tuniced Imperial Officer before they made a Movie version.  I also agree with Jesse that removable caps should have been included with Chief Bast if they made one here...

They're pretty much one and the same...

To be honest, that IS pretty impressive.

I hadn't even caught a whiff of these figures, beyond the vague rumors that there would be toys to go with the game. Good job on someone's part....

I hate to say it, but for the first time, I am going to hoard these figures like a freak.  Like a freaking hot wheels jerk.  Screw anyone who wants them until I've had my fill.

Ok, not that extreme but I really like them a lot.

Female SA Imperial Officers? Yowza.

Oh yeah, and like said, look out for some customs from that figure base.

So this figure has 200% more breastage than any Imperial figure yet produced ... and you're complaining? :o

Tsk, tsk. And you call yourself a man.... :P

Yeah OCB, that irony wasn't lost on Paul and I either...  We were talking about that briefly on the phone...  Not that I didn't care for the figure, but Paul noted that if they do this as a human male at some point, well the cash could just be direct deposited to Hasbro really. :)

The sculpt on that female Impy is outstanding, and she's so simply generic...  I'll buy many and truly hope the hat fits other heads well.  She is EU though no doubt...  I think the Force Unleashed line really is looking like some of the better EU to mix in if you can stomach it though.  The Trooper on the left in the double shot of them (Cody-ish helmet) is very VERY reminiscent of the Aquatic Assault Stormtroopers from the West End Games books...  Some distinct similarities.

Paul mentioned a stylized look to them when he/I were talking and I can see that, but at the same time I thnk they fit quite well with the basic line... 

My gf's kid went nuts for this line so I think for that market they're a hit...  Collectors I think will really base judgment on the game's popularity or their own like/dislike of the EU.  Such is the gamble EU's been for Hasbro.

I'm happy...  I can see where a non-EU crowd comes from though too when it's an entire line like this.  Part of me really hopes they do well though and that Hasbro maybe considers small sub-lines of EU mixed into the basic lines now, as SOTE was, the EU of 98, Clone Wars, and now the Force Unleashed figures...  I'm ok with that kind of quick limited EU line getting snuck into the basic film figure waves that make up the vast majority of the year...  if any of that makes sense?  ???

All these look great, especially the troopers. And though I always try to be as positive as possible, or at least just not voice my disapproval, I can't help but mention that the name Force Unleashed is awful. To me, anything with Unleashed has tended to suck (for lack of a better word). And if I hadn't have read the previous posts, I'd have no idea that these figures are the standard 3 3/4 variety and not part of those larger or smaller Unleashed lines. Just basically, the name's confusing.

So, any packaging indications? Are these going to be sold separately or in a multipack for the game?
