New Ultra Clone shots at JD.com!
« on: October 30, 2003, 11:55 PM »
For those who want to see how an action figure SHOULD be done, head right on over to www.GalacticHunter.com right now and check out the prototype shots of the Ultra Articulated Clone.

The poses simply rock...

This guy's got ball/socket joints everywhere. :)

BTW, here's the driect LINK right here for your viewing/reading pleasure.

Thoughts?

Haha, j/k Scott.   ;D

I will hunt for these figures like Sauron hunts for the One Ring. :o :o

Well, I won't send out riders in black, but I will buy every single one of these that I can find. Why the hell didn't we get this in April 2002???

This is easily the best figure Hasbro has come up with for AOTC, as well as the best army builder I've ever seen. Now lets hope we get some ranks released in the future too. I still need a yellow clone.

These are going to go fast, and this whole situation reminds me of the CommTECH Stormtrooper situation where the pegs were filled with crap and the Stormies couldn't get out in large numbers

Hopefully these come in Four Packs

Our hope is that Hasbro has the foresight to maybe ship this bad boy in a solid case of its own.

Or perhaps mixed with ARC troopers?  Like an 8:4 ratio of clones to red arcs, or 10:2 of the same order?

Seeing this along with the carded Hoth Rebel Soldier makes me scratch my head.  I know the Hoth Soldier is a relic from a few years ago - in more ways than one - but wow.  Hasbro should treat every army builder this well.

This thing is beautiful!  Absolutely perfect.  Now my question is, why the hell did it take Hasbro EIGHT damned years to finally figure this out?!  It should be like this for all the figures, or at the very least, all the army building figures.  Our static poses could (should) be a thing of the past!  By the way, when you say "Ultra Clone" Jesse, you don't mean Ultra as in the new deluxe line do you?  Just as in it's got ultra many points of articulation, right?  Hopefully that's the case, because I definitely don't want to be paying $10 a pop for these, regardless of how nice they are.



Very nice!

This has to be the coolest figure made in a LONG time!  I will most definitely be buying a lot of them for my armies.  I even like the figure just as it is (as a prototype).

I'm really hoping that these are not going to be packed 1x or 2x per case of 12 figures.  Hasbro has to know that full cases of these things would disappear in a heartbeat.  I also think that they should be offered like the army building 4 packs of RFTs and Stormies at the Fan Club.  It'd be so much easier to just order 5 packs that way then to try to hunt down a significant quantity of these at retail.

How many of these will Hasbro sell?  As many as they produce.

I need about a dozen for my diorama so I sure do hope they ship these in massive numbers.

Wow.  Too nice.

If we don't get a Stormtrooper like that in the next year or two, I'm going to kill somebody.

This figure really looks great, I can't wait to get several if we are able to find them.  I agree, I think it would be fairly easy to get a Stormtrooper out of these.  Heck, do some more of these "super articulated" jobbies for some of the other characters too while you're at it Hasbro :).

There is a case coming probably beginning of December with

3x Saesee Tiin
3x Kit Fisto
3x Clone Trooper
1x
1x
1x

The 1x are either Mace, Asajj, Obi or Durge...they will probably rotate those.

They should have done

3x Kit
3x Saesee
6x Clone

And left the Wave 2 stuff out of this ::)
