Here is my realistic guess at what we might get.  It's not necessarily a wishlist.

Collection 1 - Core characters, most army builders
-Yoda - Senate Chamber force battle
-Padme Amidala - Senator (Anakin, Obi-Wan & Palpatine's arrival)
-Commander Cody
-Emporer Palpatine - Senate Chamber force battle
-Special Operations Clone Trooper (blue markings)
-Mace Windu - SA, softgoods

Collection 2 - Secondary characters
-2-1B Droid
-Ongree Jedi Council member
-Utai docking facility worker
-Fireship Pilot
-Security Battle Droid
-"Bettie" Protocol Droid
-V-Wing Pilot
"You were entrusted to lead the Republic." - Vote for Ven Zallow from THE OLD REPUBLIC in figure polls!

The Final 12
« Reply #61 on: July 13, 2005, 06:41 PM »
From GH:


Quote
Final 12 Revenge of the Sith Action Figures:

- Commander Cody

- Holographic Plo Koon

- 501st Legion Super Articulated Clone Trooper

- Commander Gree

- Holographic Aayla Secura

- R4-P17 (Obi-Wan Kenobi's Astromech Droid)

- Wookiee Warrior - NEW SCULPT (Two variants: One light brown with tan "pleather" softgoods vest; one brownish black with black "pleather" softgoods vest. Both come with rappel line and cannon.)

- Passel Argente (Yellow Cloak)

- Shu Mai (Utapau Costume)

- Neimoidian Warrior (Variant Silver & Brown Deco)

- Grievous' Guard (Variant White)

I'll definately be getting the Clones, and probably the Seperatist leaders. Not sure about the new Wookiees and the rehashed "variant" guards. I'll wait and see the pics.

This list is actually pretty good considering the OT **** that has been announced lately. The figures that puzzle me are the holographic versions of Plo Koon and Aayla Secura - if they had said Ki Adi Mundi and Plo Koon, I'd believe it 'cause in the scene where Anakin is made part of the council, both of those Jedi appear in their chairs as holograms.

Not too bad considering the list of giant repacks/exclusives we've seen so far today...

I'll gladly buy the #41 Clone (501st) and pass onthe 5-pack!

RS is reporting it's Commander Bly not Commander Cody. Aren't we already getting a Commander Bly in the Evolutions pack?

I knew I wasn't the only one thinking that! Of course Hasbro will pack it one per case with 4 Nemoidians and 4 Grievous Guards. ::)

Don't get those guys started again!  (Re: The raging "Who is Bly?" thread  :P)



I think it was decided that the Clone in the Evolution set is one of Bly's Grunts, but not Bly himself.  Bly would look like #33 Clone Commander, but with Yello Deco instead of Red.

I am not too impressed with the next 12.  I hope we get COdy since i think we are getting Bly with the Evolutions set.

So are any of the repaints we have seen been confirmed?  Black Clone Pilot, Green Commander and Red Quick Draw Trooper.  Do any of these fall into the remaining 12?  I am totally confused.   ???  The Green Commander is showing up in the final 12.  WTF?  So it basically looks like the remaining 12 could all turn out to be resculpts?

It sounds like there may be some speculation that these are instead a part of the "Secret 10"...  No idea if that rumor is even remotely legitimate or not, but it's interesting to speculate nonetheless.  I hope these repaints do fall in a separate "Secret 10", so that the "Remaining 12" can be all-new figures.  Yeah, right.  I know...  :-\

EDIT: Whoops.  Guess you can disregard that comment.  Hadn't seen that GH report there.  If that's true, then pphhhtttth.

Pft, **** this. Hasbro can blow me.

Hear that Hasbro? You suck. You suck. You suck and you suck some more. What the hell is with you and holographic figures? Do you just get bored and instead of thinking of something new decide to: "Hey, lets remold this outdated POS into a holographic figure. The kidz'll love it!".

Commander Cody (Yellow Commander)
Holographic Plo Koon
501st Legion Super Articulated Clone Trooper
Commander Gree (Green Commander)

That is all that I needed to hear - SA 501st clone.  Sadly other than that and Commander Cody - there is very little to get excited about here.

Thanks Big H.

I definitely concur with those excellent choices, as I'm sure everyone here does.  I'm always down for a repainted astromech too, so that one's OK with me.  But 12 repaints all at once, including of figures that are HUGELY warming the pegs while we speak, is just asking to kill the line off.

I can only pray this whole rehash insanity is just some type of transition period into the new "Saga Collection" era next year, where the rehashes will at least be mostly all-new sculpts, mixed in with some all-new figures as well (Cantina, Jabba's Palace, Padme, SA).

But hell, Hasbro is even rehashing everything in the new Unleashed and Galactic Heroes lines, so this really isn't looking very good right now...  :-\
