Bad news for the carded collectors out there - Hasbro has confirmed that the SDCC'09 TFU Stormtrooper Commander will indeed be packed on the new red/white card with an outer clamshell.  Not a surprise I guess since that was the way they said they were leaning, but it's a pain I'm sure for some who now need to track down the new one too.

Why does Luke keep getting the chromed out pimpin' leg straps?  What happened to grey?

Cool ladder, but not cool enough for me to give a **** about this.

Ugh. I'll pick up one for kicks and giggles. My guess is that this isn't going to be particularly popular.

Although it's distracting now, ultimately I think it's more accurate as I think they've always supposed to have been silver.

Here is a decent shot were they do look like they were made of a silver nylon material:

Silver confirmed, ironically it looks like Luke comes with the wrong ladder though.

Yeah, you think Hasbro could spring for the RED ladder as well...

It couldn't possibly cost that much to produce that ladder and throw it in as an accessory.

Here's my reply from the Minnesota thread:

The pic on the cardback looks like a blonde Michael J. Fox. Just by looking at the pic, the figure looks like a smiling female!  :-X

Yup.

And what do they want for that, $15-20 bucks?  Over my dead body.

I still think this is a better situation than an exclusive actually being a figure that most of us want, like the Tonnika Sisters or something along those lines, because then we'd have to deal with the cost/availability insanity of an exclusive.

The way it's been, they can just keep the piece of junk.

I will buy one for the ladder but if my eyes are not fooling me it looks as if they are using the new Red Leader body and not the typical VOTC one. The Torso, arms and next look different, it may help justify the purchase more......

What about the torso and arms exactly? It looks like the same redecoed WM Droidfactory/Legends Luke to me.

Check out the arms they look a little longer but the more obvious difference is on the white "block" on the forearm. The previous version does not have that detail, at the very least the forearm is new. As far as the torso goes the neckline looks higher and the sides of it look cleaner than the previous version. This could be the angle however the forearm detail looks sculpted and not painted over which makes me think/supports they used some more "new" parts besides that one. It also perfectly match the reference pic with that detail. Is it more reason to buy? For me yes, the head ladder, forearm and hopefully cleaner paint job will justify the purchase. I am a happy to see this figure regardless, it better than another Clonetrooper or Stormtrooper.

LMK your thoughts.
