Clone Wars Value Packs
« on: August 20, 2003, 09:36 AM »
Worst idea ever, but cool that the Yellow Clonetrooper will see the light of day.  Sounds like these will be exclusives, I'm going to say this is right up KB's alley

I'm assuming these are all of the non-poseable variety?

I don't know.  I like the idea better than having to pay $11 to get the 3pack versions.  Unless these are not going to be articulated?   Then I'd go for the 3packs.  Then again I probably won't find all the colors of the rainbow versions in the 3 packs or the value packs anyway.   So ultimately in the end it won't matter.

I think this might actually be a repaint of the red Clone Trooper.  This seems just like the K-Mart 2-packs that were done last year.  Hopefully they don't get them.

If K-Mart gets them, I'm screwed.  Same w/Target.

I'm hoping its KB, but thats not much better, seeing as my KB is stocked to capacity with pegwarmers from 02.

Oy.

I like them anyway.  Not counting on finding them though...

Aaargh! How can such great new pics and news be coupled with such an overwhelming sense of frustration?!

It sure looks like those are repaints of the 02 Red Clone. That's great. Army building heaven for me. I'd like several articulated clean clones and a couple each of the higher ranks.

Having to buy a bunch of el Bandito Yodas to get an army? Bad. Having to stalk a specific chain to find exclusive items in an already poorly stocked line? Very bad. Packaging stinks, IMO, too.

I want these so bad, but I'm so disappointed in how the coolest variants ever have been so poorly handled. Pack ratios for the Clones in the 3pack assortment are aweful, especially considering all the variants, and forcing buys of multiples of core characters to get army builders is, well, stupid. Didn't mean to rant, but I think these are a great bunch of figures to get excited about, and are being distributed in a collector punishing way. Not cool.

Ughhh, my head is swimming now.  For the 3 packs are the different colors as follows?:  

Blue
Green
Orange

Then the exclusive 2 packs are
Blue
White
Yellow  

Is that all or are their other variants?

The count so far seems to be:

Clone Wars 3-packs
Kneeling, Standing, Prone (white/clean)
Kneeling, Standing, Prone  (blue standing)
Kneeling, Standing, Prone (green kneeling)
Binoculars, Kneeling, Standing (yellow binocs)

Clone Wars Bonus Packs
Anakin with Blue
Durge with Clean
Yoda with Yellow

I feel like I'm missing a 3-pack from the list?

I actually like the idea of the value pack.  That yellow Clone Trooper is awesome!  How much are these going to cost?  I don't think I read about that anywhere.

If hasbro would just make 3 Packs of repaints of the Red Clonie, Famine would be happy as well.

I saw John (MrPL) was not a big fan of the Red Clonetrooper...I am I think he rocks...I think these mutlipacks are modeled off of that figure, unless this is new all white version???  Any one looked real close to compare

You've got a mix-up in the 3-packs.  Here's the 3-Pack lineup:

Standing, kneeling, prone - All white
Standing, keeling, prone - Standing blue
Standing, kneeling, prone - Prone red

Standing, kneeling, binoculars - Kneeling green
Standing, kneeling, binoculars - Binoculars yellow

The rumor was an all-new white clone sporting 14 points of articulation.  Now, I'm hoping that figure is still on tap.

If he is, these packs are perfectly fine by me as army building fun for all!  Go to em I say.  And it would make sense to do something along these lines to get clone variety out there in an exclusive format while the single carded white poseable clone ships at the same time and everyone searches high and low for multiples of it.

If THESE are the "new white clone" though, then I'm disapopinted.

The red clone's articulation didn't lend it to many fun poses, and it certainly NEVER could acheive any level of a neutral pose, that's for sure.  Much like the 3-pack clones, they don't strike me as "great" unless there's a neutral and still poseable version.

Then the extreme posed clones are great in my book, but only then.  Same goes for all army builders though as I see it.
