This is very cool looking, and at $19.99 it's even better.  I will probably only want one of these however.  And of course, it will be opened.

They have a picture of it in the new insider. It includes 4 Technician Clone Troopers and a repainted Bacara; why they would include that, I don't know, it's not Hoth or Rhen Var or any other snow/ice planet.

Got the scoop on this set last nite and posted in our So Cal thread: the case has a transition date of 10/16.  This is not a street date so they could slip out sooner.  The same date applies for the Mustafar Duel figs.

Someone over at "that other site" has pics of this on their front page.  One costs$19.99 and it's a blue Bacarra with 4 grey painted clonetoopers.  The 4 are from the Deluxe Clonetrooper with Jetpack.  Obviously without the Jetpacks.  Pretty good deal I would say.  Five clonetroopers for $19.99.

 ???

I thought that the 4 Gray Clones were #6s (with Quick Draw Action). 

Where did you hear they were Deluxe Clones? 

edit - nm.  I see the guy at scum also posted in the forums over there...

"So I just openned them up and to let everyone know the grey troopers are repaints of the Jet Pack trooper right down to the mounting hole in the back and lack of peg holes in the feet."

Very interesting....

The package is deceiving because it mentions quick draw action.  Apparently it is in reference to Bacara.

Hmmm, I'm not sure if I'm actually happy about that new information. Yeah, not having them be #6 clones is great... but are the jetpack clones any better? I'm undecided.

The jet pack clones don't have an articulated left elbow. Intersting, but logical choice considering how the molds are used. Overal, a bummer. I wounder how this news is going to effect sales?

Hmmm, I'm down pretty much to only wanting one set of these now.  I'd rather have had #6's given they are one joint shy of super articulation and don't look bad to me...  Their shoulders and hips aren't as nice as the SA Clone's sculpt but the Jetpack Clone's a pretty weak figure in the arms (neither one having much articulation at all).  I'll take wide hips and shoulder joints over underarticulated arms any day.   :-\

Now that I know they are Clone Deluxe troopers, I am rethinking if I even want to buy these. Thanks to Chewie I can easily bring out the paint, buy a Bacara figure and paint it up to look like this one. Not a bad price if your after clones for an army, but for a collector like me, I'd rather have the #6's then what they've given. As of right now I am thinking I will pass on these.

That's an interesting choice of sculpt to use. I'll still be tracking down my standard 1 boxed/1 opener, but I won't be doing any army building. It makes the Evo variant pack much more compelling to army build with.

They're really going out of the way to avoid using the SA sculpt for army builder repaints, aren't they?  :-\

I agree, this is one I'm likely not going to buy more than one of I think.  I'll take the one set with a small squad, and the unique Bacarra sculpt, but that's it.  The greys did squat anyway so who cares.

Unless and until I read something official somewhere (Databank, Essential Guide, etc.), I consider that blue commander to be someone other than Bacarra.
a) It makes no sense for him to be on Coruscant
b) Why in heck would he repaint his armor with a totally different color scheme?

It's actually fine with me, since it gives us another sorta-EU commander instead of just viewing him as some botched Bacarra.

And $19.99 sounds pretty sweet.

Agreed.  But I just don't know what to actually call him, so blue Bacara is the handiest thing to go with.

Overall, I'm a little disappointed by the use of the Jetpack Clone in this set, but it gives me a good reason to only buy one to keep boxed, instead feeling the need to get 2.

I was kind of looking forward to this set, and considering picking it up, but now that it is likely the Deluxe Jetpack Clone is being used, I think I might pass.  Not that it is a terrible figure, but I'd have rather had #6s (or #41s of course).  I think it might be enough of an excuse to save $20.
