I'll probably wind up getting the two specialized troopers with all the gear, and maybe Vader just for the "beaten all to hell" look, but everything else (other than 2" Unleashed, which I will buy) will be getting a pass from me. 

They are the only TFU Stormies that interest me too. They make sense and look more official, the others Stormies are just too over the top. The Gun metal gray Stormie compared to Black Stormie does not really make sense, not that big of a difference. I thought the Black Stormies were stupid but at least they were in the official imperial color spectrum.

Overall Clones have seemed to slow down and this seems like an effort to try and recreate the army building buzz. I wish this game would just come out already I am ready for the new Clone Wars stuff! Who knows what crazy colors await us there.

does the blue guy have a removable helmet? cause i noticed his helm looks "fatter" then the otheres.

Good eye... and damnit, I think you're right.  I don't mind removable helmets on Stormies if the helmets don't look "fatter" but it does appear to be that way.

As for these new Stormies, I don't care for the Shadow repack or the "Covert" Trooper.  I always thought that if they really wanted to be covert, they'd be in jumpsuits not cumbersome armor.  So the Covert Trooper will be an easy pass for me as I feel the entire concept is lame.  I might grab a couple of the Shadow Trooper however as I already have a couple of the original version/Blackhole Trooper (or whatever they're calling these now).

I'll probably want to play the game before I know just how many of the red/blue Stormies that I want.  Probably 3-4 of each.  They'll most likely sit in a box until I get to a point in my photonovel series where I might find a use for them... I'm hoping they are in a Battle Pack but if that's the case, they might throw the Covert Stormie in there, which would tick me off.

Regarding if Lucas will alter the OT Stormies in the films, I highly doubt he'd ever do that.

At first I would think "No" George would not do that, but he likes to tinker and wants  those films out there in 3-D form someday.  So, I would not put it past the man to change them.  THEN I could see people justified in getting mad about these multi-colored stormtroopers.  I would even be mad about that.  But this video game altering of them does not bother me that much.  It looks odd I admit, but that's all.

Hey, there is a bright side to all this.  Everyone loves that VOTC mold so much.  Here's a way to buy them at retail and then paint them white or whatever.  I might even be able to tackle that :)

Actually thats what I was thinking of doing getting this lot and paiting them white, or using goo of to remove the paint.

Looks like he might be getting another outfit too... while looking on ebay for Force Unleashed stuff, I saw a bit of a spoiler regarding the character.  Might already be common news, but I wasn't aware of it...

Well, most rumors say that the game is like other SW games (KotOR, etc) in that you can choose to play him falling to "dark side" or "light side" of the force.  It's leading to a lot of "Evolution" pack rumors with the Apprentice - 1 fig for the outfit from the start of the game and then 1 fig for the "light" ending and 1 for the "dark" ending.  Just rumors for now though...


Also, from that RS link, it looks like the Blue Storm Commander is going to be carded.  Since he's not in the TFU wave, and Hasbro says only 1 TFU wave, maybe he'll be a Target/TRU/? exclusive to counter these Wal-Mart box exclusives.  Or maybe he'll end up in a later EU type wave?

Should be interesting to see how it all shakes out...

Ah, that would make sense if you can play as either Good or Evil, because the figure I saw of him wasn't evil...

That's a mini though. No guarantee that it will be made into a 3 3/4 figure. Looks like a generic Jedi to boot. Then again at the mini scale it's herd to get detail, so a "redeemed" figure might look s nicer at 3 3/4 scale.

Yeah, it's a mini - but I thought I heard there would be two figures of the Apprentice, so it's possible that this outfit will be incorporated into a 3-3/4 figure... I hope so actually, it looks pretty cool.
