I like it. I wish they would have given us a pic of the figure without the helmet as well.

Well, judging by the shadowed out characters in the background of this picture:



we know the 5th (middle row to the right) is a Clone commander repaint.

Hmm Hmm Hmmmmm

Do we really? I recall a cantina Han silouette on another 'mystery figure' shadowed pic. Likely true though ;)

Bottom row, middle one looks like an ARC Trooper...

This time they appear to be accurate, as you can see the #41 clones in the top row. 

You know, the ones with the Superman Mandalorian logos on their chests.

I thought someone, somewhere confirmed that the shadows were not indicative of all the figures.  Maybe I'm just making this crap up though.

Nope, you're right.  My intent is to pick out shadows that if you read enough into it, you'll realize that they can't possibly be the real figures in the set because some are actually older 12-inch action figures.   There are deliberate red herrings in there.   I mean, in the middle row, on the far left?  That's the single packaged version of GI Joe Valor vs. Venom Scarlett.   So if people want to speculate, great, but the shadows aren't really going to reveal much more about what's in these sets.

Shenanigans!  Shenanigans!  I have to go get my broom!

Seriously though...thanks Adam for answering all these questions and giving us more insight into what's in this pack.  'm looking forward to see the rest of the set.

I appreciate the insight too.  I didn't realize that was a Scarlett figure shadow, but then again I haven't looked too closely at the shadows.  I figured most of them were going to be made to throw off people who are speculating what they could be anyway, or that EE might not have access to all 14 images yet and just put something together with Hasbro for the teaser pics.

Oh, you know you love me.

Also the new ToyFare has yet ANOTHER exclusive reveal in it.   I'm hearing it's just now starting to hit.

I must have missed that day at Fanboy camp....

It was right after the course on not bathing before a July Toy Show, and I think right before the course on how to stand in everyone's way at a convention while you take photos of the few women there in scantily clad outfits.

I missed it because I was at the inability to speak to the opposite sex seminar, which was outstanding.

Ugh, I don't care for that commando.  It's so bad I almost don't want to even buy this set because of it.

Thanks for the pic though.

I guess we can consider this one of the other re-paints that Adam elluded to earlier.  I was planning on doing a squad of my own black deco Rep Commandos, so this just saves me the work.  I really would have liked to have them SA though...  Oh well, not the end of the world IMO.

And Ruiner, since you told me to keep count we are at:

2 new tools
3 repaints

So far, you're closer to being right...
