These are odd...

The Droid set looks like a whole lotta suck though aside from the cool gonk repaint.  The Magna droid's lame, the Droideka's lame, the BD's look like less than stellar sculpt choices, and the SBD is an old sculpt...  From what I can tell. 

The Clone set looks a little cooler, but still I think some less than cool sculpts were used, such as Bacara there who looks like just Bacara repainted (and he's a meh figure).  I think the AT-TE Gunner sculpt is in there too... 

The price isn't horrid for the figure count, but the battledroid set really is tough to justify with some of the sculpts they threw in there.  Make that a 30AC SBD, and modify the 3-pack Droideka to have poseable blaster arms, and I think I'd have been happier with the droids.  Magna Guard would be better replaced with a BD though, and then the worries on what plastic they use on everything ultimately...

Right now the CLone set is definitely the cooler of the two I'd say.

^ I pretty much second what JJ said. Overall it looks like a whole lot of "Huh?"

As far as characters go, they're dead on in keeping true to the pre-ROTS era of Battlefront 2.  These are all the troops involved in that part of the campaigns, minus the Clone Pilot.  But then that character is interchangeable with the Clone Engineer which IS represented here.

I suppose this set is nice enough for new collectors or fans of the game series, or something ... I'm not overly impressed with them, however. Episode I Battle Droids repainted? Wow. Great job, Hasbro!

And where are the OT figures from the Game.  Rebel Vanguards and Snipers...

I don't think I have played that game more than a dozen rounds as the Pre-Crapuel characters, but I have played hours (possibly days) at the OT.

But I guess if the sculpts they choose are gonna suck, I'd rather not get any.  Besides, I don't see this line going past wave 1.

Make's sence as a line of sets. I'd definitely be more interested in what OT sets would look like though.

This is a big pass for me. The only one that interests my is the Power Droid repaint and perhaps i can get one loose on ebay when the time comes.

The lame repaints need to stop.

You can bet the packaging will look better than the figures...

I love that Gonk repaint, but the other figures... Meh.

An OT set would be amazing though.

I'd love to get the weapons from this set but there's no way I'm buying this. Had they used superior sculpts I would consider it. HAlf of these molds need to be buried in New Mexico alongside those old Atari ET games.

I'm buying the clone set for sure. Not so sure on the droids. I doubt a rebel set would be cool, look at the droids all crappy sculpts. All rebel figures so far are crappy.

An Imperial set would be the best though. :o
