TRU Clones and Commanders Gift Pack
« on: April 2, 2007, 12:38 PM »
Another TRU Exclusive.

As the front page reports the set could be repacks of Obi-Wan, Utapau Clone, Vader, Silver Sandtrooper, Yoda, and an Elite Clone.

Let the speculation and comments begin.

Pesonally, I think sticking a Sandtrooper in there is lazy. Sure it's a clone, but seems random considering everyone else should be PT fodder.

On the other hand, I'm glad it's supposed to be all repacks giving me one less purchase to make.

I would buy it if it were more like:

ROTS Ki-Adi Mundi
TAC Galactic Marine
TAC Obi-Wan Kenobi (from the comic pack)
TSC Captain Fordo
Evo Anakin Skywalker (either movie)
Evo Clone Pilot (blue ARC repaint)
and two SA Clone Troopers (AOTC)

but that'll never happen  :'(

This sounds like something they put LESS thought into than the Order Sixty Sux 2 packs.

Yeah, pass here too.  I don't understand when they mismatch figures together like this, that don't make any sense.  It would be so simple for them to do better "gift packs".  Either go all clones, or go all OT troops, or some other incarnation.  This seems to be "Obi-Wan and his clone, Yoda and his clone, then a Silver SANDtrooper, and oh heck, let's throw a Vader in there".

ICK!!  Hasbro is starting to do a pretty good job of weaning me off boxed stuff....That just looks horrible.

Man, that sucks...  not even a theme really, just a mish-mash of jedi, sith, and clones thrown together.

Add my name to the "pass" list.

I cracked up when I saw the Silver Sandtrooper in there, it seems Hasbro had some old stock and just decided to throw him in there, disregarding that OT-style Sandtroopers didn't exist 'til about six years after ROTS. The kids will love this set though.
