For someone with more knowledge of this than me, or who was actually there to see this thing in PowerPoint clarity, what is that totally white figure in the middle of the "front" of the packaging?  I can make out Bacara, but it looks like there are two of the same "yellow" Clones there, with a 501st Clone, and this white thing in the middle.

Groovy, yet also somewhat nonsensical in execution. What an odd mix of different legions. What's more, the assortment on the back doesn't match the front.

I second the good Doctor's question: can somebody who saw this firsthand tell us exactly what we have here?

I need your guys' sharp eyes to help me out.

I'm trying to clarify which figures are new and which are repacks/repaints (and from where).



Jedi vs Sith

Anakin - new?
Asajj - new?
Grievous - ROTS Sneak Preview
Obi-Wan - new?
Yoda - SAGA 03-15 Yoda & Chian





Jedi vs Separatists

Anakin - SAGA 02-22 Hangar Duel?
Obi-Wan - SAGA 03-01 Acklay Battle?
Jango - SAGA 02-31 Final Battle
Mace - SAGA 03-02 Arena Confrontation or kitbash?
Maul - SAGA 03-25 Theed Hangar Duel





Rebellion vs Empire

Chewie - ROTS III-5
Han - SAGA 02-37 Endor Raid
Luke - SAGA 03-17 Throne Room Duel
Stomtrooper - POTF2 CT?
Vader - SAGA 03-18 Throne Room Duel



I'm pretty sure of the three newer Battle Packs, since there's a lot of information floating around right now.



Assault on Hoth - Toys R Us Exclusive

General Veers - POTF2 AT-AT pack-in
2 Snowtroopers - POTF2
Snowtrooper w/ E-WEB - SAGA 03-19 Battle of Hoth
Probot - POTF2 Deluxe





Jedi Temple Assault - K-Mart Exclusive

Anakin - ROTS III-2
3 Blue Troopers (501st) - ROTS III-6 repaints
Clone Pilot - III-34



And no pics exist of this one yet, to my knowledge:

Emperor's Throne Room

Emperor - SAGA 03-30 Throne Room
2 Royal Guards - SAGA 02-19 Coruscant Security
Stormtrooper - POTF2 CT
Imperial Dignitary Kren Blista-Vanee - SAGA 03-41 Death Star Procession

Jedi vs. Sith

Anakin is new
Asajj is fairly different from the basic CW version, so I say new or at least kitbash

Jedi vs. Separatists

Mace - Saga 02-28 Geonosian Rescue (a.k.a. Constipated Berserker Mace) with different head

Man i am so happy i only "need" 2 of those sets. Jedi vs. Sith and i think the Clone Attack on Coruscant (provided there are new paint schemes on the clones). I can skip out on Jedi Temple assault since they are releasing those clones as singles.  ;D

The Grievous in the Sith Pack has a different Cape than the Preview one.  Only difference is the left side wraps around the front leg.

Maul - SAGA 03-25 Theed Hangar Duel

I THINK the Obi-Wan in this set might be a modified version of the Obi-Wan Kenobi - Outlander Nightclub Encounter figure.  The key difference being that the lightsaber hilt isn't attached to the lower part of the tunic.

Thanks to the handy-dandy-image above (and now below), the Obi-Wan is a Saga/AOTC Pilot Obi-Wan Kenobi figure, sans robe, and with a seemingly different head.  At least I don't see a Jedi pilot headband on him there.  That's definitely not the Ackley Obi-Wan though, and not the Outlander Club Obi-Wan that was a different pose and articulated.  May be either of those figure's head though.

Thanks guys!  That Obi-Wan really had me stumped - the angle of the picture made it tricky to get a good luck at his face.  I think the consensus would be, at a minimum, to treat it as a kitbash figure, if not altogether new.

And Mace Windu seems to be the Geonosian Rescue figure, but with a new head (like Nathan pointed out, he's missing the "constipated" look  ;)).

If that picture holds true to the retail release, that Obi's definitely the Pilot figure mostly...  I can tell by the left arm's thinness at the top, the left hand's weird look due to the magnet in it, the skirt-piece, the legs...  The head's the only mystery now.

That Mace's head, to me, looks like the Deluxe AOTC Mace Windu w/Battledroid if I had to put a name to it.  It's the only Mace with teeth showing I can think of that isn't open-jawed.

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.

In my neck of the woods, the Mas Amedda situation is far worse than the neimodians.  When the clearance comes, the neimodians will be coming home with me in bunches.
