PADME-Is it me or does she have ball jointed arms?


Sure looks like it to me.

I like this wave. Most of it works for me.

Clone Trooper (Training Gear) - Excellent. Now here's hoping for the blue variant as well. I'll get 20 of these guys. Heck the snap on armor will look great in an armory scene (similar to the one where they pick up their helmets on Kamino). When teh blue one comes out (and you know it will), I'll get 20 of those too...hmm, and here I thought I was going to slow down on army uilding...well I should say I'll stop at the end of the TAC and Legends lines.

Padme Amidala (Fireside Gown) - Nice, not great, but good enough. I'll buy 2 of her.

Jango Fett (w/ poncho) - Sweet. The snap of armor will look good in the closet slightly hidden from view, the the scene where Obi officially meets Jango.

Voolvif Monn (Clone Wars) - Other than the head being way to big for my taste, this figure rocks. Looks like there is some very resepectable articulation going on there.

Destroyer Droid (w/ 1/2 shield) - Well I need 2-3 shields, so that's going to be 4-6 Destroyers for me.

McQuarrie Signature Series - Concept Rebel Trooper - I'll get my standard 2 of this as I'm doing with all of the other McFigs (save Vader and Boba who I'm getting 3 each of).

heh, just think how the 'trainee' clones will go like bread and butter with all the 'trainers' listed in the EE mystery pack -some marketing strategy there. A 'training on Kamino' playset next?

I like the look of the trainee clone. I think Sal brings up a valid point about 'blue' ones too. Think Hasbro thought of that( a way to double their monies)...sure they have! :D

You never know about the blue repaint.  We all think it's obvious, but we all thought that a gray DST was obvious too, then Hasbro said that they had no plans for the gray DST.  But I do agree that the 14 pack will have at least one of these.

I'm with evenflow...I have no idea why the hell that feather top is there.  Its not even CLOSE to movie accurate and looks like absolute ****



It's not from the fireplace scene.  It's from the dinner prior to the fireplace scene.  Check that out HERE.  The feather part probably comes off for the fireplace scene.

I don't really care for the mottled texture on the shield, neither do I like the holes.

To be honest I would have much rather had a plain jane clear/blue shield.

I suppose that would be easy enough to make, but I'm not inclinced to make one, so I was hoping hasbro would come through.

Looks like this figure is a pass for me now.

That shield is pure and utter ****! It looks like those stupid Force Effects that came with the 2002 figures, and DEFINATELY doesn't look like it connects. ****, it's not even movie accurate! The shield in the movie was mostly see through with a blueish hue on the edge, like a bubble. There are really no words to describe how disappointed I am by this. >:(

Awful.

"I suppose that would be easy enough to make, but I'm not inclinced to make one, so I was hoping hasbro would come through."

Think about the last part of that sentence. Really think about it. See where you went wrong?

I don't mind the DD...  It's actually a pretty sharp looking figure, and I can't speak for everyone but I was sick of the damned action feature one showing up anywhere at any time.  The shield is different...  I'm not completely let down by that, but the droid's pretty nice in a world when BD's aren't exactly something Hasbro has an affinity for.  I just wish we'd get new, poseable, sturdy, regular battledroids at some point...  That's been a long wait.

The training Clone though is fantastic.  Gotta have lots of him.
