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.
