Damn those figures look hot!

Its a shame that the greivous figure is marred by an action feature though. How ******* sweet would it be to have a 4-armed SA general greivous figure? The poses you could put him in would be awesome!

Clone Commander pic over at snowtroopers

Pic is about halfway down.  I'm sure you can read so I'll let the thread tell the story.  Looks neat.

Thanks for the link Brent.  That definitely looks cool, I really like the look of the Clone Commander...wonder if the visor is moveable/removable?  That certainly is one heck of a story, and sounds true enough...heck, he has the proof.  I wonder how many e-mails Hasbro will get due to this now :).

Oh, and I'm sure many have seen it by now (I couldn't get into JD earlier this morning for some reason), but Rebelscum has a little preview up of Grievous' Bodyguard.  Looks like a pretty nice figure as well.

Yes, this is one figure I want badly.  Looks like it has quite a few accessories.

What are the chances that I emailed hasbro, not 5 minutes ago?

My rocket on my jango fett pack broke, and my han solo quick draw feature deal is broken.

Go figure.

Neat deal for that guy.

I was just checking Jeff's list for the figure release dates and the clone commander is slated for May release.  Hmmm, maybe we'll get a big, ole pile of figures right at the outset?  I wonder.  I really don't want to wait for all the clones, because I expect everyone will over-order collection 1  ::) and we'll be left with a bunch of fat Padme's on the pegs. 

I have to say, the clone assortments look simply awesome (and $$$).

First off - the Clone Commander figure looks AMAZING. I'm definitely liking all of the different clones that are being made for this film!

As far as whether or not we'll see his wave on April 2nd - while I would welcome it, I'm not going to expect it. Waves 1 & 2 from each collection is more than sufficient for the onslaught. Will it make the waves that immediately follow those harder to find? Possibly, but I don't seem to recall the follow-on waves of AOTC figures being hard to find at retail either.

Yeah, I see what you're saying Pete.  I don't mean to imply that Hasbro will reduce production at all.  It's more of a reference to how Canadian retail seems to work (i'm in Canuckada, just so you know) and that we get the short end of the stick fairly quickly.  I'm hoping to at least be able to find all the clones we've seen thus far locally, but you just never know up here.  For AOTC/Saga we didn't see the Emperor or Djas Puhr until December and then only a handful ever showed up.  Cynical, that's me.

Yeah - I can understand, I know that you guys in Canada are often left out in the cold when it comes to new releases.

So, ok.  I'm going to voice a complaint here (go figure, a star wars collector whining) - is Chewbacca like the runt of his family, or what?  Just young and small, lack of testosterone, piss poor genetics?  Why is he such a midget? 

My point being why is scale suddenly irrelevant?  All along Chewbacca has approximated his appearance in the movies relative to other characters, all of whom were to be in scale to Luke, yes?  Now why is everything bigger?  I'm all for big wookies, that's cool, but are we going to now have preggers Padme standing shoulder to shoulder with Chewbacca (everything pre-ROTS anyway)?

I still have issues with this pic



I still think Yoda is too tall in this pic,  but it seems Hasbro has seriously ****** up the scale of the Wookiees.
