Yeah but there's no way any suckers would fall for that and keep buying them so Hasbro could continue doing it forever.

Hasbro's outfit choices for Starkiller were alright, but they simply used too many army builders for these sets. Just taking out Starkiller, PROXY, and Juno turns these sets into army builder sets. The sets would have been much more appealing if they selected different choices: Maris Brood, Kazdan Paratus, Kento Marek, Drexyl, Phobos...

The list is very long! Hasbro had SO much source material, but they wasted it. How many times have we seen the Shadow Troopers re-released? WAY too many times. And there's 1 figure per set! And another Evo Trooper? Who asked for this? They threw away so many candid slots. Kota's Militia and updated Jump Trooper are welcome, though.

And with that, another updated image of the Felucian Warrior turned up...  Better picture that shows lots of detail of the upcoming repaints new paintjob.  It looks pretty spiffy and considering how it's tough to army build the Felucian Warrior, this one's a welcome figure to me.


Clicky to check him out!

On the issue of army builders...

I agree to an extent.  I would've only been interested in getting Brood had she been updated to include knee articulation.  I don't really want another one of her though, as I have 2 deco variants of her already and she was a little disappointing in the articulation dept., so unless that was upgraded I'd vote no on her... 

I couldn't agree more on the Shadow Troopers, and I think the Evo and Jump Troopers are meh choices (though I do like seeing the Jump Trooper get his jetpack...  that's long overdue).

On the issue of all the other choices, I would've liked to see them as well, however Hasbro's looking at cost with these sets, you can tell, so all the new guys are a bit unrealistic I'm afraid.  Looking at it from a cost POV, I would've dug seeing the Shadow Guard offered again as he common enough IMO.  I would've liked getting a sort of "battle worn" Rahm Kota with a bandage for his eyes too.  A little reworking or deco changes and the bandage accessory added would've been neat to me.

I'm not wild about the 4 Imperial Troops though, no...  I think they could've mixed it up a little bit more than that.  Paratus may have been doable using the Target 2-pack Tsui Choi figure with some accessory-additions to the figure.  Brood with new legs would've sold me on that one too though.  Hasbro was definitely looking to lessen the cost of these sets with all those deco-variants though, without a doubt.

Thanks anyway. I gather it is a Felucian, my questions is what exactly is a Felucian? A big bundle of sticks? That's what that figure looks like.

Sorry, I am severely EU impaired. (Yes, on purpose)

Cool, now I have more of a reason to order that sweet $-Lom. I placed two order three days apart from tunghori as he posted new stuff. I am watching the numbers on these hoping new stuff will pop up.

I just received IG-97, Plo, Dep and T'Raa Sa from him. I am awaiting Kota dudes and Juno from him. I like to make these order more beefy. I hope some of the apprentice shows up along with more of the EU wave. This seller is going to be the collecting drugs I need to keep me occupied until some new shows up during the drought.

I am down for 2-3 of these and a 4-Lom but I will hold out hoping more show up. I may even pick up some more Kota trooper they look pretty cool! I really hope the apprentice head fits the older sculpts, it would be nice to have them all match.

The Kota Militia Troopers is really cool. I have 5 and they look great next to Rahn. These sets cannot come fast enough as this horrible drought lingers on.......

Is Hasbro planning to release these before the VC-takeover?
