I highly doubt I will be picking these up. They do not appeal to me what-so-ever.

Those exclusives are lame, and that Stormtrooper is horrid.

These sets, for once, I'm glad my walmarts will never see them. My walmarts never get exclusives and I'm glad they are not getting these as well. Oh course, for those that really need all walmart exclusives I suggest their online order and store pickup service. They ship your item to a store for free for you to pickup.

I see the guys over at Yak have some new pics of the second round of Wal-Mart Comic Packs...




It sounds like they are hitting various parts of the USA...  anyone find them yet? 

If so, can anyone explain the differences/changes to the Anakin/Dooku set figures?  They were supposed to be "more than just repacks", but I can't recall exactly what paint/deco changes were going to happen to them.

I was looking at a shot of the Anakin/Dooku set from an ebay auction, and couldn't tell a single thing that was different just by eyeballing it.  I'm very glad I only want the Wookiee/BARC Trooper set.  Take a couple of those if I find them I think.

The Anakin/Dooku set are repaints. Dooku's outfit is black with a red belt and all of Anakin's colors are dark, dark brown bordering on black. Both are the ROTS carded molds.

I saw pictures of the them on some otheR Site, the Kashyyyk one looks kinda cool.  I know its a repack with different accessories of the Preview Wookiee from ROTS and basically Neyo with different armor, but its pretty cool looking.  I especially like how the wookiee is holding what look to be Battle Droid arms, you know they've been known to pull your "arms out of your sockets when they lose..."

I actually was wondering if those were accessories, or added by the photographer for dramatic effect.  I would dig them as accessories though for sure.

The otheR Site had packaged photos that clearly show the droid arms in the Wookiee's hands.  I agree it is a neat accessory.

They're definitely accessories.  I picked the set up today, and the Wookiee comes with two battle droid arms.  Plus the Wookiee has a clearly different paint app scheme from the TFU Battle Pack Wookiees.

Both good things to know...  Make the set a bit more appealing, though honestly it was the only appealing set to me out of all 3 of them, so I guess it didn't matter.  But still, droid arms...  That's a nice touch.

Just a question, how well does the clone mix with Mace Windu purple clones? Do the colours match? Because I was kinda hoping to use this clone as a squad leader.

Yeah, that was going to be my intent too. I'd make that Purple Clone the Commander of all of Mace's forces. Then I wouldn't need to army build this set. (Though if I do, it would only be 5 sets tops).
I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.
