Target Ryloth/Abregado Battle Packs
« on: July 22, 2009, 03:48 PM »
So, pics have shown up of this set. It includes Waxer, Boil, Commander Cody, and Mace Windu. Mace seems like an odd choice, but I'm stoked for this set as I enjoyed the episodes in which these characters appeared.

It looks OKAY. The clone sculpts are indeed impressive. But, c'mon Hasbro, fix up that Mace Windu!....... ;D

We've got a boxed image of the Assault on Ryloth battlepack for your viewing pleasure, out on the front page.  A nice set to give Mace an army for that episode arc...  The CW battlepacks are surprisingly what most of us would've liked to have seen in the regular line a while back, ironically.

I suppose that is what the box is going to look like for the Battle Pack line next year. It looks thinner and taller than the current package. Overall, it looks like a great set and I look forward to picking it up.

It that photo, does it look like Mace's snap on armor and helemt more closely matches the his forearms in terms of color? The basic figure's armor/helmet contrasts greatly so it'll be nice if they do match up in the BP release.

There was a pic floating around the Scum forums of the BP Mace. Having seen it as well as possessing decent vision, I can confirm that the white plastic on the removable armor does indeed match the forearm plastic. For this reason, I plan on passing on the current Mace Windu figure and waiting for the BP instead.

Was the image you saw from SDCC? If so, I think that was the proto/paintmaster so it might not exactly match the final product. I hope so though.

No, it was from one of the Ebay sellers located overseas. Granted, the figure could still be in early stages but commonly the figures that pop up (like the ones from Black Sheep Toys) are close to the real deal.

My apologies Jayson. After doing some looking, I was steering you in the wrong direction. The pic was from the guy that runs the Star Wars I Like blog. I don't think he has updated his site with the Mace figure just yet but I'm sure he will in a few days.

These two exclusive sets have started hitting the stores in the midwest. Might be worth running the number (087-06-0751) on your next visit.

Picked them both up today by having someone pull them from the back with the DPCI.

How do they know which one(s) to grab? Don't they all have the same #?

I can just see myself trying this and some drone carting back a fistful of Jabba's Palace BP's...ugh.

I did enjoy that 48 hour span when I was OFF the Hunt.  ::)

No, the exclusive sets almost always have a different DPCI from the main line sets -

Basic Star Wars Battle Packs = 087-06-1873
Target Exclusive Clone Wars BPs = 087-06-0751

Thanks Jeff, I am going to try this at a few locations after work and will report back later tonight.
