TLC "Shield Generator Assault" Battle Pack
« on: May 28, 2008, 09:25 AM »
This is part of the what I'd guess is the first wave of Legacy BP's:

Assault on the Shield Generator (VI)
Bomar Monastry (II)
Recon Patrol on Hoth (V)
Speeder Bike Recon (II)

Definitely ROTJ. Guesses as to the contents?

Cardboard bunker
Han
Chewie
Rebel Soldier
Ewok
Biker Scout

Hmmm... another Battle Pack, that "could" be really good but I'm afraid it won't have as many army builders as I'd like to see.

What I'd "like" to see -
- Endor Rebel x 1 (using current sculpt, but a NEW head)
- Endor Rebel in Scout Trooper gear
- Stormtrooper x 2
- Imperial Officer (some sort of kit bash)

What I'm afraid we'll see -
- Anton's list (ha ha no offense buddy, I just don't want to see another Han and Chewbacca in these!)

No way it could be something to do with the AT-AT's assault on Hoth?  Just speculating there's two shield generator assaults is all...

Either way, if it's mostly repacks I'll gladly pass.  I'm kind of getting used to not caring about a lot of this junk anymore and that's a good thing.

The way the pack is being solicited with a "VI" after the name, it would seem to be a RotJ pack.

I doubt it's a Hoth set because we've already got the "Hoth Trooper Speeder Bike" set AND the "Hoth Recon Patrol" set (Han/Chewie/Probe/etc) battle pack coming out this Fall.  Having 3 Hoth-themed Battle Packs in one quarter seems unlikely...

Just throwing something else to consider out was all, but actually I guess I hadn't even paid attention to the roman numerals afterwards.  Must've had blinders on.  That does seem to squish Hoth possibilities. 

I'm hoping for lots of Ewoks and such.  Not sure I'd care about it much if it's got some outdated figure sculpts in it though, like the AT-ST Driver body, or the Endor Rebels that I really don't want any more of unless they're all new.  I guess I'm just not hopeful on positive things with the set.  [/debbie downer]

I'm hoping we get Nik Sant in one form or the other, some new Ewoks, and some SA AT-ST Drivers.

Back in reality...it's probably gonna end up being Han, Chewie, POTF2 Wicket, and more stormies. :P

Hmmm... The Imp looks like the comic pack Luke with a new head, Han looks like VSTC parts, but I love the "exploded" electricity thing on R2.  It makes him look like all his gadgets are fried, without actually sculpting another fried R2.  Kind of a neat way to get that version of R2 finally. 


But, I can't help but wonder why there are only 4 figures shown... cost saving measure or was a fig missing for the photo?   ???

It's Moff Jerjerrod's body painted as the you "Rebelscum" dude. I like the new Han Head a lot. Based on the MF passengers battle pack I think the new BP will only have 4 figures.......if true that's sad.

Oooh... that's right - Comic Pack Luke was Adm Ozzel not Jerjerrod, right?

That's a cool friggin' set...  I like the officer, the Han looks nicer, the R2's innovative and cool, and another 3PO...  eh, ok.  I'll take a Scout army builder too.

The helmet on the scout looks quite large. Could this be Nik Sant in Scout Trooper disguise?

The 3P0 is not part of that set, it's actually part of the Falcon passengers set. They are placed side by side so it can give that impression depending on the angle. Both sets only have four figures.....unless Hasbro plans to unveil them later. This may be a Q&A question to confirm the future of BP's figure count.
