Regarding the Target clone 5-pack, I assume that the figures in the packaged sample are not the figures we're getting. It looks like the figures pictures on back are the actual figures right?
I certainly hope so. I still can't tell what mold the Clones are using, but the photos certainly seem to make the front out as a mock-up with actual packaging images used for the back photo. Again, I HOPE, since this is now the only Battle Pack I intend to buy.
After looking over the list of who is in what Battle Pack, it occurred to me that many of these figures could, with a few exceptions, be considered pegwarmers during the original release. I mean, out of all the figures, here is what I could identify:
-Jedi vs. Sith: seems okay, but that Anakin figure still looks horrid.
-Jedi vs. Separatists: Mace was probably the grand champion of pegwarmers in 2002, Final Battle Jango had his share of dust, and one of my local WMs still had mountains (at least 30) of those Deluxe Anakins for over a year after AOTC was out of theaters.
-Death Star Whatever: Chewbacca (III-05) is currently warming pegs, and the Endor Raid Han was in the top 5 of Saga pegwarmers for 2002, and Luke is absolutely horrible (moreso without his base, which made the figure work in a way).
-Battle of Hoth: A Probot that fails by today's standards, along with not one but 2 already surpassed POTF2 Snowtroopers, a General Veers that is almost vintage quality in terms of sculpting (I like the vintage line too, but detailed they ain't), and the Saga Snowtrooper, which wasn't exactly a big seller then or in the OTC line.
-Jedi Temple Raid: I'm fine with the 3 501st troops, but this will be the third time that Anakin figure has been released with no paint mods, and the Clone Pilot would be pegwarmer of the year if not for the glory that is the Neimoidian Warrior.
-Emperor's Throne Room: A truly horrible Emperor Palpatine, 2003's champion pegwarmer (the Imperial Dignitary), two ERGs that warmed many a peg in 2002.
-Coruscant Clones: The only set that doesn't seem to have been slapped together in about ten minutes, and naturally, it's an exclusive at the one place that has more difficult to track down exclusives than any other retailer.
