Now, don't hold your breath because these dates have been wrong plenty of times before, just thought I'd let you all know in case anyone was champing at the bit to pick up this exclusive box of rehashes.   :P

I'm not holding my breath because they are rehashes. ::)

So I stumbled upon Battle Pack #2 tonight at Target - Jedi vs. Separatists.  Not a single Separatist in there (especially not Maul), but what the hell.  Rehashed crap, galore!  ::)

Ugh. At least put in some figures people may want to buy, like the Jedi vs. Sith set... ::)

That isn't a new Obi-Wan, is it? I'm hoping it's just a repainted CW Obi-Wan.

Can anyone tell me when the Snowtrooper/Veers battlepack is coming out?

According to Amazon, 9/5. But, since when has Amazon been known to accurate? :P

On the Jedi vs Sep set its just the Saga Coruscant Chase Obi Wan. Nothing is new.

The problem is that Anakin is **sorta** new. I took a shot in the database trying to show the arms and the big button coming out of his back. He has an action feature that is different than the Hanger Duel version, and has the soft goods robe. I consider that new enough to be both pissed off and in need of purchasing the thing.  >:(

I'm really, really annoyed about possibly having to buy two of these to get a lousy (and by lousy I mean shittastic) figure.

And you should have seen Colman dive for that thing at Target, right after I commented about the previous set being so generic I'd end up passing right over it in front of me. And, viola. There was Crapfest #2 on the bottom shelf.

The Anakin looks exactly like the 2002 deluxe version, where he slices and dices the Geonosian.  I'll have to fig him out and see.

Ahhh... I completely forgot about that one. Did it have soft goods?

Yes, a cheapo vinyl type soft-goods thing:

Interesting though  is that the Saga chopping/deluxe Anakin had the "SCREAMING" open mouth sculpt, but the 5-pack version looks like it uses a different head:

Saga Version / 5-Pack version:


Hmmm... looks like maybe the Mace has a new/differnt head too?

I added a couple of boxed pics of the Jedi Temple Assault and the Imperial Throne Room sets to the Image Database.


Jedi Temple Assault


Imperial Throne Room

The Imp set is utterly pointless. Interesting too that they show oneDignitary on the box back and include the other in the set.

I agree with SpudTrooper's comment in another thread about the 501st clones -- they look a bit dull in the paint apps. Hopefully the single carded version will look better. I don't plan on taking mine out of the package until I find a second set.

So, the most important question (Jared, or anyone else with them in hand), as always with these repack sets, does it look like any of the figures from either of those (or the new Hoth set if anyone's found it) are different/revised/rescuplted/new in any way?  Or just identical re-releases?  As it stands, I'll unfortunately have to be getting a second set of the Jedi vs. Separatists due to the different heads on some of the figures.  So hopefully I can pass on having to do that with these latter 3 sets...

May have to nab 2 501st sets...  I wish the Clone pilot was a variant on some level...  Or at least the as-of-now harder to find Black pilot.  Some unique helmet markings would've worked for me though.

The extra Ani I wind up with will either make for the fodder bin or a hand-off to one of the kids since they dig Anakin in general...  The pilot's my only stickler that I wish was at least different then, but whatever.

If Ani was a Clone Trooper though, this set would be something I think they could restock and sell again and again.

Yeah - the Jedi Temple Assault is a for the most part, a great set. The only thing that kills it is the Clone Pilot. My son looked at it last night and was like: "When was a Clone Pilot raiding the Jedi Temple?" - and I didn't know what to say to him other than: "Well Hasbro thinks there was, I don't know what to tell you."

I really wish they had just included a fourth 501st trooper.

Same thing goes with the Imperial Throne Room set. The Stormtrooper is an odd choice. Instead of having one dignitary in the box and another in the picture on the back - just include BOTH of them and forget the Stormtrooper.

I also would have re-organized the Jedi vs. XXXX sets like this:

Jedi vs. Sith:
Anakin from Yavin 4
Asajj Ventress (she wasn't full sith but close enough)
Qui-Gon Jinn
Obi-Wan Kenobi (TPM)
Darth Maul


Jedi vs. Seperatists:
Obi-Wan Kenobi (Snap-on Clone Armor)
Durge
Mace Windu
Ki-Adi Mundi (or Shaak Ti)
General Grievous

But that's just me.
