Target's "Attack on Coruscant" Clone 5-pack
« on: June 29, 2005, 02:11 PM »
Well, over at the other site they have an article posted about a new clone 5 pack. Read on:

Need more Clone Trooper figures? Of course you do!
We've gotten word of another set of Clone Troopers coming out in a special boxed set 5-pack.

"Clone Attack on Coruscant" includes 4 white clones with gray shoulder pads and a blue commander that is reportedly similar to the Commander Bacarra figure. This set comes with a cardboard insert of the side of a gunship with the door open and the figures are positioned like they're ready to jump out of the door.

*: Additional reports describe this set as one of the new series of Battlepacks and that the figures ARE articulated and can be posed in totally different poses.

This may be a Target exclusive, but no official word on that just yet.


Hot damn! It's like Christmas came early this year!

So - now why if they can make a five pack with four troops and a commander. Why can't the TRU packs be the EXACT SAME concept? Four SA Troops painted with the grunt markings and figure #5 is that unit's commander. Exclusives this time 'round are just bizarre.

Hmm...This is interesting. I was pondering...If they did the TRU packs like these, we'd have to see Commander Appo, and the Commander of the Shock Troops.

They better be SA. And I kinda hope they aren't a Target exclusive. I'm sick of overpriced figures that can never be found. Whatever happened to the Wal-Mart exclusives that sit for years?

Hmmm..if this is a Tarhet exclusive, it could get pricey.  Let's see, they charge 12 for one clone, so five clones should be 60.00!

From the sound of this, this is going to rule! Maybe I'll hold of on those grey clone  customs for now. Count me in for several. I can't wait! ;D :)

This sounds a bit better than what the 3-packs MAY turn out to be.  Sounds like Hasbro's pushing Clones a bit more but it's very disappointing to hear about them being exclusives, and especially ANYTHING going to Target who are hit and miss with their exclusives.

I know TRU is the better company at getting more of their stuff in and on the shelves.  Target has dropped the ball on too many occassions for me to totally trust them with handling this properly.  And now, what will price be?  Oh well...  We should know soon enough.

Hopefully at Comic-Con they will have pics of what they will look like and maybe a price range.
I remember my dream now.

Well, if they're like the ones on Coruscant then yes...  Clones there in some scenes had grey shins and shoulders (I think those were the markings). 

If the paintjob is not accurate though then technically no.

I am certainly interested in this set.  However, I hope Hasbro will just release single carded versions of some of these clonse.  I can not justity to my wife paying the $40 EE exclusive clonetroopers, and 3 packs, and now 5 packs. 

However, I can easily smuggle in single carded versions.  LOL!
