At least it isn't the POTF2 Royal Guards (stumpies) Saga HAS to be better than that, unless it is a repack...I don't know.

I disagree. I actually prefer the POTF2 version. They're essentially statues, but they look great when they're just standing there--which is all they ever do in the films when you get right down to it:



The Saga one (actually 2002 not 3) has an odd leaning pose and the way the arms "jump out" so much just looks funny to me:



So if they had to use an old mold I'd rather it was POTF2. But for play value (the whole point, right? *wink, wink*) there isn't much reason to use either one now that the softgoods ROTS version is here:

OH geez Saga IS worse than POTF2!  how is that even able to happen?!

I want the ROTS one though.

Heh, signing up on this forum site is making me sad and happy all time.  Wishing I still had the cash for this and then glad I don't

So, it appears that from the little signs next to the 5-packs at SDCC that most of these rehash sets will now be TRU exclusives...

Good news in that these re-pack monsters won't clog the shelves at Target (where I do most of my shopping  ;)).

Is that the case with the Jedi Temple Raid Set? I really hope that it's not, I'm probably going to want to pick up two of those to open and throw away the Anakins. Easy way to build a 501st Legion w/o having to buy the #41 repaint six times.

I have never had a problem getting a TRU exclusive so these will be shipped in good numbers and will be around for a while 'cause TRU never puts anything on clearance.

Well, the 501st Clone being "available" as a regular carded figure has pretty much kept me from even wasting time or money on the Temple Raid BP, so I guess I can completely wash my hands of this line as well.  With the way today has gone, I'll take a small bit of good news when I can get it.

One question though (and this may be one of the things that Hasbro is holding on to as a "surprise"; you know, as opposed to the "Surprise, the line is ******!" way today has gone): what happened to the rumored Coruscant Clone set with the gray shoulder pads?

Hmmm. Considering all those TRU 4-packs, I guess it makes sense.

Not sure if anybody's noticed this before, and too lazy to reread and check, but it seems the Chewie in the Rebels/Empire set is the ROTS "squeeze my leg" version: click here.

Good eye there! The Chewie in the OT set is indeed the ROTS version of the Character.

Also - I was looking at the pics over on Rebelscum and it appears that the Jedi Temple Raid pack is an exclusive but I can't tell to whom. The last line of the card reads "Avail: NOW  Exclusive: ????" and I can't read what retailer is listed after "Exclusive:"
