I wonder if there are going to be any rules reguarding the UPC's, because it'd be funny if someone sent Hasbro a bunch of UPC's with Jedi Master Points on them. Hopefully we won't have to buy "specially marked" UPC's because I've got about 20 sitting around right now.

Remember though, only Jedi Master Points are usable in the US.  So those stockpiles in the rest of the world don't apply.   ;)

Cripes if that were the case and we could send ANY SW Hasbro UPC, I've got hundreds of those Jedi Master Points in storage.

I'd love to finally be able to use them, but know it's a pipe dream...

The assortments are listed right on the form that was posted.  Current Basic Line and Legends figs are likely all that will work with this offer.

Anyone else think that middle figure (the ARC Trooper) is labelled as "Rex"?

Looks like it to me.

I suppose the blue clone could be Captain Rex as well but who knows?  :P

Yeah - what is that green thing?

The little green thing is Jedi Master Aphid....heh heh.

And I agree the Blue Clone looks like Rex.

Here are some shots from the trailer of "Rex" if he is indeed the Blue Commander Clone.

or individually

I'm aware that the Blue Clone Commander could also be construed as Alpha however, I'm going on the first pic of the LEGO figs.

The helmet markings are different from Alpha's as well as the paulron (which of course could have been simplified for the cartoon).

I think that little green thing is Jar Jar's head.

Has anyone noticed that the markings on Rex's head are similar to those on the Mandalorian Clones in the EE packs?

Yup.  They're all based on early concepts for Boba Fett from the late 1970s-- they're mining a lot of those old concepts for new figure opportunities.  (I digs 'em.)

Ok, if you needed more proof, here is a MUCH clearer pic of the LEGO figs. Rex is CLEARLY marked and is the very same trooper as originally posted and seen in the CW trailer as well.
