I like this one.  New figure, nice colors, removable helmet.  :)

Two figures = great
Two figures = more #41 repaints ::)

10 more to go...

I don't think I'd go so far as to say I think it's cool - but it's definitely better then another repaint.

Female Mandalorian?  I'm in on that...  What's the deal with the parts though?  I'm not recognizing all those parts on her.  Some new stuff?  I thought the set was to be made of re-used toolings, or was I just imagining that?

Nope, she's new.   I might (or might not, I can't remember) have said that there would be new stuff in the set.   For those who've been reading the thread, I consider this to be one of the six super awesome ones, and I'm glad to see that I'm not alone so far.

There are repaints, retoolings, and all-new stuff in the set-- more will, of course, be revealed over the month.  Until the end of the month, as there's going to be a nice big fat reveal in San Diego.   (And on the note of big fat reveals, no, Gargan is not in this set.)

That answers that then...  I was thinking nothing there looked familiar.  It's kind of a game amongst customizers to look for the parts and see if you can identify them, so that was basically a dead-end for me.  Curious on her likeness under the helmet now. 

I'm betting Clone Commando repaint is one of the upcoming reveals due to the bio/text surrounding the chick Mando there.  I'm just working under that guess for perhaps the next image shown...  Be nice if a possible Commando revealed were to have newly tooled legs that actually had articulation...  Such action-packed figures shouldn't be so staticly posed, but I digress.

Interesting.  So I guess they're just making these characters up out of thin air.  Weird... but of course I'll buy it.

Yes, a simplere-hash of a commando wouldn't be so hard. The Female Mando is a nice surprise.  :)

If anything can be said about this set, it is interesting. Would have been cool to see her with out the helmet.

I think Jesse is right about Commandos and I how for new legs too. Time will tell.

If the rest of the figure amount to repaints, I'll get 2 of these for some cool fodder if anything.

This latest reveal really makes me want to get this set. I mean, that female Mando is so cool, and we probably won't get anything like it for years and years. My faith in this set has been restored.

Now, anyone interested in making a giant Mandalorian Clone army?

I'll give "Mandy" Lorian to my daughter.  I guess I am not that interested in female figures or characters.  I must have missed that day at Fanboy camp....

Still since it is a figure I can give my little girl...it is still a 12 pack...and worth the $$ besides I've found a home for the clones...

But I am encouraged to see that we are getting this kind of stuff, don't get me wrong.

I'd also expect a Jango in there based on Rav's bio... probably a repack/repaint though  -  but they "could" surprise us!

I think  it is a cool addition. I have seen fan pics of her before... and I think Tom Hodges did a piece of her as well.

They are batting .500... not bad for a start..

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.
