Target Clone Wars Geonosis 2-Packs
« on: November 18, 2010, 10:43 AM »
Similar to the "Hostage Crisis" inspired 2-Packs that are out now, it looks like Target will have another wave, this time based on the Clone Wars Geonosis episodes...  pics at Sandtroopers.com.

- ARF Trooper Waxer and Geonosis Battle Droid
- Special Ops Clone Trooper and Geonosian Drone

While Waxer/BD are just repaints, the Spec Ops Clone looks to have an all-new tripod machine gun and new Geonosian - both are great!

Hasbro has been cranking out a lot of stuff from this story arc - Ki-Adi, Flamethrowers, Jet, Spec Ops Clone, Waxer, Boil, Geonosians - nice to see them help me fill out a shelf like that!  :)

These sets look awesome! I'm definitely in for one of the Waxer/BD sets, and probably eight of the other set... it's perfect for army building. The mounted laser cannon is awesome. I wish the ARF trooper was just a generic trooper, but I'm okay with the named character... saves me a bit of money. My only issue is that the Spec. Ops trooper doesn't have the backpack. The accessory has already been made, and nearly all of the clones in the Landing at Pt. Rain episode were wearing them.

Non-zombie Geonosian! They seem shorter than the movie-based versions.

Which side does the cannon go to?

The cannon was used by Battle Droids and geonosians in various episodes of the show. Still though, I think it's generic enough that it can be used by clones as well.

I am all over these (and tons of the Ops Trooper/Bug).

Yeah, what Greg said...  I want to pick that up for the gun I think, so if someone wants the Geonosian I'll probably have him around.

That's cool. More Seperatist gear is welcome. I guess I never noticed it per se.

Yeah it's like German MG-34's & 42's on the beaches of normandy...  strategically placed high rate-of-fire guns to mow down advancing Clones.  I've wanted that gun since it was first unveiled, actually.  Kind of weird to only want the accessory out of a set, but I'm kind of weird like that in general I guess, haha.  :)

Love 'em, love 'em, love 'em...have been waiting for a non-zombie Geonosian to be come out. I wonder if/how this will differ from the version in the TRU exclusive set recently announced.

Special Ops dude looks a lot like the missing Comm. Jet...hmm.

The TRU Geonosian will most likely have wings. It would be nice if that figure came with some different weapons as well.

I haven't picked up the sets from this round yet, but these new ones do look pretty spiffy.  I sort of liked the look of the "Special Ops" clone trooper from that episode, so I might have to grab that set.  Wouldn't mind having Waxer as well, although I haven't found the Boil deluxe set yet either.  Pretty nice sets overall though.

If they continue doing these 2 pacs they should do one with Master Di and his Clone (Keeli?).  That would be a cash money set for Hasbro imo - plus I don't think there would not be any new tooling required.

New loose production pic of the Geonosis Battledroid from these sets.



I don't recall the droids on Geonosis having all that yellow on them, but that episodes so old now I suppose I'm just not remembering right.

They did have the yellowing, it was just very hard to make out with all the dust.  Very cool!
