I don't know if anyone else got their Insider #95 or not, but on page 6 there's a new ad for this set (haven't seen this one before).  I'm going to assume that like the other ads, the shadows of the figures are not the actual figures we will be getting.  But if they are, it looks like there's an EP3 clone re-paint on the horizon but we will be getting a Jango!  I can't tell from the shot if it's SA or not...

You would be correct-- these were just random figures I had on my desk and are in no way what you'll get in the set.   (Yes, I have my desk covered in Clones and droids and stuff.)

Dammit Adam!  Quit 'toying' with us!!!  Ok, just kidding.  Here's the ad for anyone who really cares:

Another fun thing, there are two versions of this ad.  That's the Star Wars Insider one.  The one on the back of ToyFare #121 says (no joke) "The Mandalorians R In Ur Base... Trainin' Ur Doodz."

Very cool set and ads

I have to ask, (without taking offense and hopefully some will give this a moment of thought before reacting), Why do Priests nowadays always get an evil spin? Not all are evil child molesters. What I mean is it seems like the name of a semi-evil militaristic Mandolore warrior being named Priest has some behind the radar political jab. You see more and more of this in the media, print and products. I am not even a religious but I know I really do not like the name of the figure. Honestly, it really bothered me when I read it. If the guy was named Dred Rabbi or Dred Mosque would that cause an controversial uproar or upset anyone?

Some may say I am reading into it too much and that I should relax but I feel like I am reading between the lines of something that had an intent of another nature. I had to get that off my chest. I am still going to buy the sets but I would hope they make up better names in the future.

A lot of members here think he's named after one of the marketing guys from the Hasbro SW team - Derryl Priest.

If thats the case that would make me happy. As I said when I heard it something inside just bothered me. I appreciate the clarification. I did not know there was a guy named that on the Hasbro team. I am around too much Politics and I see it everywhere.
I guess I did read into it too much. ::)

New figure revealed. Dred Priest:

It wouldn't surprise me in the least if underneath that helmet he bore resemblance to a certain Hasbro marketing guru...  Derryl DePriest.   :P
