Uh oh.

I guess I'll buy 'em since I bought the OT sets and the CW sets.

Ah **** a doodle! Guess I'm in too.  :-\

That looks like the Mail Away Episode I Mace

I agree with Scott's guess here.

As for the "mirrored" Clone there, I think it's just the same exact Clone as on the opposite side of the package, just flipped around the opposite direction to look different.  I'm guessing they decided they didn't want to go with the Clone in the prone position from the Clonetrooper 3-packs, so they just doubled up on the standing one, to go along with the (old) kneeling one.

JediMAC: They're the final product. Hasbro just packed in the old Ep. 1 Mace, since it's the only moderately good one they ever did. Like I said, I've had these in hand...it's my friend's auction.

Look at the bright side though...although the figures are repacks, since they'll be at Wal-Mart, you're only looking at paying $9.96 per set. And all it'll cost is another little piece of your soul, for supporting the evil that is Sam Walton's unstoppable juggernaut.  ;)

I think that's a good decision.  Here's hoping these show up north of the border.  I'd buy a couple of the clone packs, non-articulated or not.  At least it's not just one with trim.

That is my favorite Mace figure of the bunch, but it's not like I'd be opening the packs aside from the clones anyway.

If I see them, I'll probably buy the clone set.  Like the others, I just can't seem to walk away from anything clonetrooper related (no matter how many times it is a repeat/repainted figure). :-\

Are they really going to be $9.96?  That's not a bad price for three figures!! I would have guessed $15-20 just because of the new packaging.

No wonder white clone plastic tends to discolor.  :-\

Hey!  That's one I have not heard before.  I like it.  Ah the infinite possible ways to rip apart Hasbro :)

These don't bother me all that much. The past sets have been easy to get as long as you're at a Walmart that has the DVD display out on first thing Tuesday, and the price has been fair. The use of the DVD-style packaging is classy.I'll pick up an opener Clone set and a complete set to keep packaged.

That said, the figures are the worst of the offerings in these sets by a long shot.

Jedi Set: Whatever!!

Sith Set: This will be fine for me, because I never got the Palpatine or Vader, and I could use another Dooku.  Unless I break down and buy the Sith Evolution set, provided I ever see it.

Clone Set:  Sigh.

I don't have anything to add on the figure set front...I just wanted to point out that Spuffy's avatar is cute.

I guess I do have something to add...you know what would have MADE this set? A transparent "Emperor's Wrath" style Mace Windu, with injection molded skeleton.

The clone set doesn't look half bad--even though those helmets are probably the stupidest variant yet, at least they ditched the prone/dead clone for another standing one.

Undecided on the Sith set.

Most likely pass on the Jedi.

BTW, Mace is the regular carded Episode I figure:



The Mailaway Sneak Preview has a built-in cloak:



Unless they just swapped the arms or something....??

That would have been sweeeet.

Yeah, looks like you're right there, Nathan.  Brainfart on our part, for sure.  I forgot what the Ep. 1 version even looked like without his chocolate shell covering...  Good eye!

I'm 95% sure they were only $14.88 the first couple go-rounds, Jon.  Hopefully that's indeed the case...
