I would love an updated Delta Squad.  The lack of articulation kept me from buying the earlier pack.

Personally, I would love to see a SA version of the clone commando.

A while back I made one using the body of a Microman. That armor is hollowed outed.

Keep your votes coming in, and there's nothing says I can't voice some opinions expressed in this thread too (I will pass bigger concerns like the shoulder joints along, and a link to the thread).

No real interest here.  We're 3 or 4 years removed from the release of the Republic Commando game.  A cool game, yes.  But one of the coolest Star Wars games we've ever seen?  I'm not sold on that.  From a gamer standpoint, I still see more interest from people about KOTOR, The Force Unleashed and more recently Star Wars - The Old Republic.

Perhaps if the Commandos showed up in the Clone Wars animated series I could get more excited about them.  But I'm generally kind of cloned out.

I'm all but finished with Prequel collecting but I honestly wouldn't mind seeing Delta squad updated. Beyond the SA sculpt I think some updated gear and some more realistic paint jobs would also be in order. I'd probably pick up a set if Hasbro felt inclined to redo them. And it does sound like they have plans to release more commandos, so I;d rather it be an updated Delta Squad than some made up clones, or clones I've never heard of.

I think it's a nice idea, but I'm a little tired of the Commandos and don't need redos just for added articulation.

man, this is quite a toss up for me. I'd like better articulation, however, I don't see me doing much with these guys other than a pose similar to the maquette. As close as I can get to that. If they came as a boxed set and REASONABLY priced, then yes, I'd want them. By reasonably priced I'm talking $25. Maybe $30 if they came with their specific guns/accessories. 

Otherwise, if Hasbro can't hit that pricepoint, then no, I don't need to own them again, just for an upgrade.

Read the thread please before you vote so you know what you're voting for.  Ed, you have to pick one or the other (remade Delta Squad, or new figures), otherwise your vote will not be tallied for this.  Also please abide by the rules on multiple posts/conversation.  One post, one vote, and all that stuff.

Thanks guys!

My vote would be for us to get remade Delta Squad - like Jesse stated in his vote - those are the Commandos that I have identified with through the video game. I really have no sense for the Commando that came in the Evolutions set or the all black ones from the Mandalorian sets.

I would also appreciate it if they were to update the weapon that comes with Sev - I know he also has the regular Commando rifle, but it would great if Delta Squad's Sharpshooter actually had, well, his sniper rifle.

(sorry if that second bit deviates from the voting, it has always bothered me that they didn't give Sev his sniper rifle in the TSC box set)

Hmm, I suppose I didn't address the vote correctly either.

So I choose between redos of Delta Squad or all new Commandos.

Here's my problem with this. If it's an all new squad, then I know I'm going to want Delta to be redone. If it's just Delta being done, then I would prolly pass as the figs we have a good enough.

So I'll have to make my final vote no to both... (is that a choice?)

After seeing the improvement on "Scorch" made by Phruby, how could i say no? I'd like to see them maybe at least have some wrist articulation, maybe even a lil' bit taller. The paint apps don't bother me, as i could paint my own, but ball jointing a whole squad for myself, so i can have some articulation is just out of the question for me at the moment. I'd buy them gladly providing they were given a killer update and a sniper rifle for "Sev". Count me in.

Removable helmets and full articulation, count me in! Instead of packing it with geonosians, you can also add in a couple of those white commandos!

Not even sure how "good" the Evo sculpt is, but of course it won't have 30 poa like a Microman body  ;D Commandos, troopers and Jedi should be articulated to the brim and Hasbro's a long way from that goal.

But I'd welcome an updated Delta Squad, because the old mold is one big disappointment. Kinda like the first Cody was as well. No need to redo Omega, anyone older than three can spray paint 'em black, so to speak.

Removable helmets? I say 'nay'. Never liked 'em on the troopers, they're way too big and the chins always peep underneath them.
