I may have considered buying this at clearance if some of the 8 figures were clone troopers.  I would have paid $50 if all 8 were different clone troopers.  Of course I have a better chance of winning the lottery than that happening.

You are never alone when there's a clone.

Damn Damn Damn! I have no idea what to do about this one. I think i will wait for some more pics before i decide. I thought Hasbro was supposed to be done with the silver figures.  >:(

If I were you, I'd pass.  The silver figure thing is played out - if you want, send me a Throne Room Vader and I'll paint it for ya at no charge!

You supply the paint though!

Well I still have not seen a red royal guard so maybe I will buy this?  Ha! Ha!  No I won't.  I did buy Lava Vader, Holo Yoda, Target Clone, and the EB set though.  So, you never know but this certainly is near the bottom of my want list. 

Yeah, it could have been more intesesting had they mixed some cooler characters together.  Say, Vader, Dooku, Palpatine, Clonetrooper, Yoda, Kenobi, Anakin, Kit Fisto, Aayla Secura.  Something like that.

If this thing consisted of four Clones, four red Guards, and the Vader, I'd have bought one.

I'm sure these will be on clearance later...

What they should have done is this -

- Silver Vader
- two 501st SA Clone Troopers
- two yellow Utupau Clone Troopers
- two AT-TE Gunners
- two red Royal Guards

I would have been all over that.

 :P

There's actually some good custom fodder in there, now that I look at it.

Still won't buy it though, unless its marked down.

And just like that the only GOOD figure in this set (the Red Royal Guard) gets changed to a Blue Senate Guard - or could this mean that the sets will vary on which figure is included? If so some collectors out there (like myself) will be compelled to by two of this turd.  >:(

Yeah, for the health department.  I don't know exaclty what they made her look for but something to do with the crap, tank, and how it was installed or how far it was away from something.  LOL!

Exactly what I was coming in here to mention Peter.  I see you're way ahead of me though.  Yeah, the one tiny redeeming factor of this set, the VHTF Red Royal Guard, appears to be getting ditched in favor of the far easier Blue Senate Guard now.  Bastards.

And they better NOT even think about mixing up those two colors within the various sets...  >:(
