Hmmm, smells like one of those crappy K-Mart exclusive BP's...4 repacks of figures already out on individual cards.

Will be interested to hear confirmation about this though.

it is in the regular battle pack assortment cases too - so it isn't an exclusive.

see case assortment here

Sorry, to clarify, I think it's going to just be 4 repacked figures, similar to the ones K-Mart has had as exclusives in the past. It doesn't sound like there are any cool accessories or pack-ins, but maybe something will be new. I hope anyway.

Looks like they are also going to re-release the Jedi Showdown and Rishi Moon BP's. Ugh, they are doing a lot of recycling with the BP's this year.

Good catch on that! Oddly enough, it has a similar description as the Droids and Clones set. I'm hoping that it will offer either 4 white troopers, maybe using the Stone sculpt, or perhaps a mix of different troopers from the show. Bomb Squad, the troopers from Lair of Grievous, troopers from Ryloth, 501st Troopers (from Kamino or Geonosis), 41st Troopers from Geonosis, Plo Koon's new troopers, and various ARF troopers have yet to be made.

If the set has two Ryloth troopers, a LoG or Bomb Squad trooper, and a 501st trooper (Kamino), I'll gladly pick up four sets.

So they are reissuing Attack on Rishi Moon Outpost in new boxes with a battle mat. Also, Holocron Heist and Clones vs. Droids will come with battle mats.

Variation completists are gonna hate Hasbro.

co-sign. That would be a lot more attractive than the crappy repacks that will almost surely comprise this set.

For anyone who's interested, the two recent Clone Wars battle-packs, which are straight up re-packs of four figures each, feature the following (as of right now) unique Galactic Battle Game Cards...

Jedi Showdown - the Anakin card features a new image, different from the Spacesuit Release and the Anakin that came with the Slave I Ultimate Battle Pack and the Holocron Heist Battle Pack re-release.

Battle of Orto Plutonia - all four cards are unique. Hasbro even put a unique Snow Gear Captain Rex card in there. Since they other three figures hadn't been re-release anywhere else until now, their cards were obviously new.

I got the Orto Plutonia set for the furry guy this weekend.  Not opened it up yet, but I'll probably wind up selling off some of the figures from it if anyone's interested.  I really was only into the furry dude, but may hang onto Anakin as well.

Sweet, thanks for the pic. It is hard to discern for sure from the size of the photo, but it looks like all re-pack swag as we surmised. Still, I'll be obligated to pick this up for completion's sake.

Ditto for me as well.....  :-\

I'm also gonna be grabbing the Rishi Moon Outpost repack for the battle game cards which should be unique for the Commando Droids in this set.

At least it's a small wave with only two "new" sets.
