(didn't we get that exact same Clone Commander in the O66 packs last year?)

Sort of... last year was the RotS #33 sculpt (with the visor), this time it's the RotS Evo sculpt (removable helmet).  Similar, but different.


I like what I've seen so far.  The Jedi are definitely a step up from last year and at least a few of the clones are more than just simple repaints.  :)

Diddy
       I take what you don't want from your sets.  If you do pick them up maybe we can make a deal for what you don't want. let me know?


Also so anyone know when these sets are going to hit?  if they are to go aloneside Clone Wars in the Fall.  isn't a little early to have seen package samples already when we haven't even seen or "offically heard" anything past wave 2. Or are these going to hit with the supposed clone wars wave 3 somethime around Easter.

Considering that neither Hasbro nor Target have yet "officially" confirmed these, I don't think anyone has a firm idea of when they will hit.

There were rumors a while back that they would show up on endcaps for Easter again (just like last year's sets), but those are just rumors for now...

Sure is hard to still call it a "rumor" at this point, but I'll go ahead and humor Hasbro on that one.  ;)


Are we still at the "rumor" stage?   ;)

Sad to say, but I like the completed packs I've seen thus far.  I never minded the Clone Wars series and the figures were fine.  My initial revulsion at Obi was because he looked to be from Saga/AOTC.  If it's been kit-bashed or modified to fit better in CW, I'm ok with that and the ARCs make sense.  That pale, angry Palps is kinda neat too.  I'm guessing I'm in for a set but oddly more for the non-clone figures this time.

It is a good thing Easter is Early this year ;D
We only have to another month and a half to Offically see what we already know. I guess it is going to be a clone wars Easter.

That's much better. Love the Tsui Choi figure.  :)

My thoughts exactly. I will take back about them being terrible. For soem reason that one little figure makes this exlcusive wave worth it. He is great. The Palpatine figure looks pretty good too, i like the paint wash they went with. Tsui Choi is great. Sadly he is probably going to be the set everyone wants.

Those new sets look pretty decent. I might get the Tsui/BARC pack and the Sev/Yellow ARC pack.

These are going to be a real pain in the Nerfherders to get. I hate exclusives & early morning runs at Target because they do not open their doors until 8, making me 15-20 minutes late for work. After several empty runs it gets old.....at least there are DCPI numbers. That was the salvation at Target for me this year, I really hate shopping there anymore.

I wish they would get this over with and the rest packaged already......

Tsui Choi looks great. The pale Palpatine is also a winner.

I highly doubt the Tsui Choi figure makes it to clearance. I hate it when Hasbro does stuff like this. A clone repaint is one thing, but a new Jedi sculpt is something entirely different.

The Palpatine and Choi sets do look pretty damn good.  Count me in for two of each set.

The sets look good.  Not crazy about the paintjob on Sev, but Tsui Choi and Palpatine more than make up for that!
