Eh, blech. I dont really care for that commando...but the female Mando...complete w/boobs even!...is great!

I still dont know if I'll buy this set, but I will definitely want to track down the female Mando loose if possible after this set hits. Definitely the best figure revealed so far.

Yep, the Black Republic Commando (Scorch Repaint)



Black or green?

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...

We're wagering a set right?

I feel the same way about Black Scorch as I did the two Clones... meh.  After the dozens and dozens of clone repaints we've already had over the last few years, more EU clone repaints just don't do it for me anymore. 

I like the other two figs though (Llats/Rav) and hope there are more like those in the set...

I'm fine with the latest two additions - I think they look cool.  Better than just the standard clone repaints!

Odd that for a Mandalorian 14 pack, we only know of two Mandalorians.

I hope that this is the last clone.

Her name is Rav Bralor.  Hee-hee, she's a girl and she has the word "bra" in her name.  Maybe in the Star Wars EU world her family made billions in Republic Credits by inventing a feminine support garment referred to as a bralor, or "bra", for short.  Rejecting her family's fortunes and jaded by the corruption she saw all around her, Rav joined the super commando corp and blew stuff up in order to do battle with her own inner demons.

Or maybe it's just a stupid name.

OK, I'm hungry now ... going to the fridge.

Actually, it isn't a Mandalorian 14-pack.  It's a Mystery Figure pack.  The final, official name has yet to be revealed, but I can assure you it isn't "Star Wars Mandalorian Pack."  (Although that is a fine nickname for it, if not entirely accurate as far as what it represents.)

I hope that this is the last clone.

Nope.   But I like Clones a lot, and there are more figures left to reveal.  I'm more or less done building armies larger than 3-6 of any given type, but I'd love to see more Clones.  Scuba Clones, Glow-in-the-dark Clones, etc.

I like it though.  Omega Squad is awesome.

You're in marketing, though. Should it not concern you that at least part of your consumer base's demand for Clonetroopers has been exhausted? While it may not be so for the majority of your potential customers... I think the reactions in this thread pretty clearly indicate that some of the older hands of the hobby aren't so pleased with yet more clone repaints. Eventually, the demand will be exhausted elsewhere.

I'm not trying to jump your ****, but how many more clones can we expect from this set? 3/14 is understandable. 7/14 probably will likely deter some folks from buying (mir selbst included, yo.)

The two Mandos are exciting, however. I will continue to hold out hope for this set to amount to something more than a few repainted Republic Commandos and Phase II troopers (and, Adam, you were right about the next figure being worthwhile ... Rev is grand!)

The female Mando sort of intrigues me, as does the black Commando (I kind of like him) but I don't know.  I'd have to see the whole shebang before making a judgement.

If one of the Omega squad clones is in the set so should Kal Skirata!  :o

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.

This just needs to be kept current.

2 out of 5 for me. A Shadow Republic Commando? The Shadow concept has been played out, IMO, so this one will be tossed in the "Sell" pile with the SA Clones.
