I was thinking OT sets too...  I think an Imperial set could be cool if they use good sculpts...  That's a big if, given the Droid set we've seen.  I could easily see Commtech Stormtroopers and POTJ Scouts in it as opposed to new improved figures.

And on the Rebels...  Well, suffice it to say that I don't think a Rebel set would be too hot...  When the best Rebel you have out on the market is the Saga Endor Rebel, and he still sucks on some level, well I think I'd likely be passing on a Rebel set unless something really nice was offered in it.

I think the IMperial set has the most legs under it for being quality but that droid set takes many of my hopes and steps on them.

Ok, let's play a game here on Alliance vs. Imperials... what could they include?

Rebels might be better than what people are envisioning...

- X-Wing Pilot, using VSTC Luke body w/ generic head
- Rebel Fleet Trooper (w/ missle launcher)
- Rebel Sniper (female Rebel)
- Wookiee Warrior (maybe a Chewbacca VOTC w/ new head/paint scheme)
- Hoth Rebel (Derlin w/ new head)
- Endor Rebel (SAGA2 w/ new head)
- Paploo Ewok (bonus figure)

Imperials, this could be fun...

- Tantive IV Stormtrooper (Battle Pack version)
- Imperial Sandtrooper (Evolutions with speckled dirt)
- Death Star Gunner (SAGA2)
- Scout Trooper (VSTC)
- Snowtrooper (VTAC)
- Death Star Trooper (TAC)
- Medical Droid (bonus figure)

Now, I understand that it's pretty unlikely that good new sculpts will be in these much at all.

But what they really should do is include a stationary gunner station with each of these sets.

 :P

I seem to recall the following Imperials showed up in Battlefront 2....

-Stormtrooper - self-explanatory
-Heavy Stormtrooper - Basically a Sandtrooper
-Scout Trooper - features a sniper rifle
-Dark Trooper - self-explanatory
-Imperial Officer - Similar to General Veers with helmet and chest armor
-Imperial Engineer - This is a Death Star gunner with different weaponry


I can't recall a number of different rebels from the game.  I only wound with Rebel Troops that were in Endor style fatigues.

The Rebel Troops in BF2 included:

1.  Rebel Trooper (Tantive IV style or Endor style)
2.  Rebel Heavy Trooper (Tantive IV style with rocket launcher)
3.  Rebel Sniper (Tantive IV style male or Endor style female)
4.  Rebel Smuggler (Design I hadn't seen anywhere but in Endor style colors)
5.  Bothan Spy (Bothan, obviously)
6.  Wookiee Warrior (Wookiee, obviously)

This is in addition to the Hoth stuff, which was different from the other levels due to the cold weather gear being used.

The Imperials in BF2 included:

1.  Stormtrooper (self-explanatory)
2.  Heavy Trooper (Sandtrooper with rocket launcher)
3.  Imperial Sniper (Biker Scout with sniper rifle)
4.  Imperial Engineer (DSG with shotgun)
5.  Imperial Commander (General Veers with sonic blaster)
6.  Dark Trooper (again, self-explanatory)

Additionally, on Hoth, the Stormtroopers, Heavy Troopers, and Snipers become regular Snowtroopers with those weapons, and the Engineer becomes an AT-AT Driver with a shotgun.

In the space battles, there are added Rebel Pilots (in X-Wing Gear) and TIE Fighter Pilots.

Watch an OT set have an Imperial officer with a grey jumpsuit, an armybuilder I've been trying to make as I get the parts.  :P

Is it just me or does the clone, 5th left to right, look like the engineer-or whatever he was-from the concept drawings for ROTS?  The helmet doesn't look like the standard clone helmet but it also looks like it has the antenae of the #41 clone.

These are really sorry except for the new weapons. I think they would sell more if Hasbro would have just offered the weapons in accessory pack minus the dated repaints. The Gonk and the Clone Engineer are about the only figures that I would like to have. All the others I have in some form or another. Would be cool to get some of the weapons in some other form than these sets.

I agree with other that Hasbro could and most likely will screw up the OT sets if they are made.

The weapons happen to be the things I like least about the sets. :P Don't get me wrong though, the Bacarra mold needs to be atomized.

Yeah,  I'm just hoping that somebody like GTG.com has a mold of that engineer helmet soon after release, still crossing my fingers they'll, GTG, have Neyo helmets soon  ;)

I've recieved a few e-mails from folks who say that their pre-orders for these box sets have been filled and it looks like they are in-stock at EE as well.

So if you have these pre-ordered someplace, it might be a good idea to start watching for them.

Mine are on order at Newforce. Hopefully they're not too far behind.
