Target Bounty Hunter Pack - "Hostage Crisis"
« on: June 29, 2010, 04:24 PM »
As we predicted on our front page recently, Cad Bane's fishy fellow Robonino will indeed be getting a figure this year!


Click to head out to the front page and check him out!

Pretty slick looking, with a lot of gear for his backpack.  I like that.

yes.

Yes!

YES!!!

 ;D ;D ;D

I loves me some Robonino! He came out so great! They definitely did not skimp on accessories.

Here's hoping we see this before Christmas, I need at least 3 for my Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil montage.

Nice - McMetal is right - they certainly didn't skimp on the accessories for the little guy.

There's something that seems "off" about the Ki-Adi Mundi figure though, I'm not sure what it is...

It amazes me that these finished, ready to sell figures can continually pop up on ebay before Hasbro can be bothered to get around and announce them.  They must have green-lighted this figure like a year ago.

Probably even a little longer than that really.  They have had this stuff planned and just aren't willing to let it slip till the conventions, which this year they have extra duty with C5...  THey're just trying to hold onto as much as possible to spread out over 3 major events...  It's easier in a non-celebration year I'm sure.

It's a pretty good figure! Forsure will look great with Cad Bane and Aurra Sing.

As for Ki-Adi Mundi, I agree that he does look somewhat strange. I like, though, that he's getting articulated knees - almost all Jedi figures thus far (with the exception of few) have no leg articulation.

Looks like this set has Robonino, 2x Blue Commando Droids, another figure and a DVD with CW episodes.

This is a definite get for me, assuming it's not exclusive to Wal Mart. Wal Mart Canada never gets exclusives. Anyone know where it's home will be?

Well that wraps that up then.  :)  Odd mix of figures.

The only figure I'm really interested in here is the Weequay dude. he looks well-sculpted.

Well, I'd like the Weequay guy too, but I nabbed Robonino off ebay recently not realizing he'd come part of a set.  Hmm.

I don't even remember Commando Droids from that episode. What about Todo 360? Would have been a perfect home for him.

I'm guessing they were just less expensive pack-ins to throw in there...  Part of me very vaguely recalls Bane having some Commando Droids, but honestly I don't recall what, when, or where he did.  I'm just chalking them up to less expsensive pack-ins in the set, to give it some value and make some stuff people wouldn't mind having extras of. 

Kind of like the trooper repacks in the Force Unleashed sets and whatnot.

The Commando droids *do* appear at the beginning of the episode (in droid form), but, at Cad Bane's command, they don Royal Guard armor from the guards they kill.

As for Todo 360, well, I really want him too, but he doesn't appear till Season 2. "Hostage Crisis" is the last episode of Season 1.
