Jesus, stealing a repainted figure - what a nimrod.

Now if it were one of the Napoleon Dynamite figures... :D

Good grief. :P

The other thing I don't get--how can it take a couple of months to do a simple repaint and get it approved? I mean really?

Seriously.  Someone could paint the figure next week.  Let's say on Monday and Tuesday.  FedEx it to Lucasfilm, they get it by Thursday.  Have it approved/not approved. 

Maybe a week or two tops.  Hasbro is being dramatic.  But, I still think it's lame that someone stole their property.

Here's the official lineup, from the Hasbro rep down at SDCC (courtesy of Jared):

Collection 1:
57 Commander Bly
58 Wookiee Commando
59 Commander Gree
60 Greivous Bodyguard
61 Passel Argente
62 Cat Miin (Shu Maiís Aide)
63 Nemoidian Commander

Collection 2:
64 R4-P7
65 Tactical Ops Trooper
66 Plo Koon Holographic
67 Aayla Secura Holographic
68 Wookiee Heavy Gunner

No mention of the black Clone Pilot, red Shock Trooper, and green Clone Commander though...

The other thing I don't get--how can it take a couple of months to do a simple repaint and get it approved? I mean really?

Yeah, that's exactly what I said.† Sounds ridiculous...

63 Nemoidian Commander

Now that's interesting. I guess that explains the silver armor, thus making this not really an army builder after all (being that you only need a couple of commanders).

I think they're just going to appear on their original #'d cards:

Red Trooper - #6
Green Clone Commander - #33
Black Clone Pilot - #34

At least, that was my initial understanding of things.

That was my take on it too...† I think it must be because they are keeping the same name eg "Clone Commander" or "Clone Pilot".

All the figures #57-68 got different names and therefore different numbers it looks like (even though they are repaints) - well, except Grievous bodyguard, he looks like he has the same name and a new number. (the exception that proves the rule?  :-\)

Nice to see the "official" names, numbers and overall lineup for the last 12.  Hopefully these will ship on their own so at least they won't be quite as difficult to find as these possible Clone variants (shocktrooper, Green commander, black pilot, etc.) that we've seen shipping 1 per case.  Please, please let Gree, Bly, and the 501st trooper ship at least 3 to a case ;).  You just know that won't happen though.

I suppose that's only fair ;).  You are probably right about that case mix though.

Is it wrong that I laughed out loud for a full minute at the "Stolen Bly" story?  For all their attempts at treating the SW line's future like classified FBI documents, they bring their "only" copy of a figure to a convention, leave the door wide open in a crowd, and then talk about how it will take months to get LFL to approve a newly painted version of the figure.  Do Hasbro's painters use their toes to paint or something? 

I mean, the guy that stole it is an *******, without a doubt, but let's be honest: several months to paint a new figure and get it approved?  That's one of the worst excuses I've ever heard.  I can't wait to see how this goes over at the Q&A. 

And if they start out about, "Oh, it will take us so long to get it approved, wahwahwah" tell them that Steve Sansweet is going to be at the convention (if he's not there already), so they can walk up to him (since, you know, he's with LFL and all) and explain their situation, and work something out.  The figure is already approved, so the "months and months" excuse sounds like total bull**** to me.  It wouldn't surprise me if they used that as an excuse to cancel the Q&A tomorrow because "people just don't respect us."   ;D

LOL! †I think the poor Hasbro reps can fetch another clone commander from the evolutions set and repaint it in less than 1 week. †Then get it approved the next day. †What's with this months and months crap? †Sounds like B.S. on their part.

Jared also says that someone just STOLE the Commander Bly paint sample right out of Hasbro's display cabinet, when a Hasbro rep had it opened to rearrange a few of the figures inside.† The Hasbro folks are saying it's going to probably take a couple months to get the figure repainted and reapproved by Lucasfilm now, as that was apparently their only copy.

Go figure...† ::)

(no pun intended)

bull****.  They should be able to get any approval they need based on the photos.

They've gotta save at least a few desirable characters for the new unified line don't they?
