The helmet of the fire-guy is completely different...  Not sure on colors, but I was thinking the fire guys had like a green/black paintjob.  If I actually had a DVD-ROM I'd do some captures of the fire-guys.  I wonder if they're even Clones?  Their voices sounded different I thought...

Hah, thanks for the laugh Jeff.  :D

I hadn't thought of the Wookiee COmmando being the ones who plant the bombs on the Tank Droids then just drop into the water and disappear.  Makes sense, but  I don't recall Wookiee's wearing shirts.

The figure looks great...  Commando's have to be beefy.  For some reasont he dark paintjob on the other Wookiee makes him look better than his predecessors.  At least in the photos Jared took.  I still prefer the Preview Wookiee and wish a heavily articulated and smaller sculpted Wookiee Warrior was put out as SOMETHING new in the final 12...  They gotta bridge that gap they made with VOTC Chewbacca.   :-\

I don't think the fireship pilots were clones at all.

The clone pilot reminds me of the fire pilots who flew beside Grievous' ship in the atmosphere before it crashed.

I don't have access to any of those images, so I can't be too sure.

Here are some photos of the fire fighters from the official site's databank.

I have a question. Why go through the trouble of giving this character a backpack and weapon/extigisher for a Photo? I'm sure all that was ever planned for this character was cockpit shots.

Perhaps the FFs were shot inside Grevous' ship shooting foam at the heroes as the came out, shouting "Stop, Drop, and Roll!" I mean, it would be the 2nd publc service message of the PT with Obi's "Go home and rethink your life, druggie!"

Perhaps hilarity was to ensue as Palpatine slipped and slided his way out of the smoldering wreckage of Grievous' ship. R2 would fall from "the sky" as he ejected himself out of a port-hole and then proceeded to spew fire-retardant foam in a scene that pays hommage to the swamp monster scene on Dagobah from ESB. The water and foam would cause Anakin's arm to start sparking, he would say "I have a bad feeling about this" and then the water/foam mixture would act as a natural conductor and Anakin's robot arm would keep shocking Obi-Wan to which Obi-Wan replies "Anakin, turn off your arm or you're going to be the death of me!"

It's all right there in the first draft of the script.   ::)

Then someone with a sense for how to tell a good story helped GL re-write it.  ;D

Does anyone know the assortment / wave number(s) for these rehashes?

I want to make sure I get the clone repaints, but I fear that it might be hard to track down the exact assortment because the numbers are not changing on the clone repaints...??

Supposedly, the #6 and #33 variants will be in the following case and possibly another one later on...

SW Episode III Collection 1, Wave 6, Rev. 1
1x Yoda (EIII #26)
2x General Grievous (EIII #9)
1x Clone Trooper (EIII #6)
2x Darth Vader (EIII #11)
1x Emperor Palpatine (EIII #12)
1x Clone Commander (EIII #33)
1x Clone Trooper (EIII #41)
1x Commander Baccarra (EIII #49)
1x Turbo Tank Driver (EIII #54)
1x Obi-Wan Pilot (EIII #56)

I'm not sure on the case # for the #34 Clone yet...  :-\

BUT, the #6, #33, and #34 have been turning up sooner in Asia leading me to believe that they will be running changes and may show up in a case sooner than that one...

I guess we will have to wait and see.

Hey Hasbro!  Logic can make you more money and keep your collecting base (aka the reason you'll still be making toys when there are no more movies) happy!

Let's have a look at this case assortment...

Quote
SW Episode III Collection 1, Wave 6, Rev. 1
1x Yoda (EIII #26)
2x General Grievous (EIII #9)
1x Clone Trooper (EIII #6)
2x Darth Vader (EIII #11)
1x Emperor Palpatine (EIII #12)
1x Clone Commander (EIII #33)
1x Clone Trooper (EIII #41)
1x Commander Baccarra (EIII #49)
1x Turbo Tank Driver (EIII #54)
1x Obi-Wan Pilot (EIII #56)

Okay, so we get 2 more Grievii and Vader when we could have done with one of each, IMO (especially with the 500th Vader and the Evolutions Vader, two superior figures, on the shelves).  Another Palpatine and Yoda case filler, one each of two repaints, a much in demand army builder, an in demand army commander, 1 of a new army builder, and 1 of a new Obi-Wan that, from all accounts, is the best one they've done for the prequels.  Not to mention that the Clone Pilot repaint isn't even in the case, which means we'll get another fabulous case assortment to squeeze him into two weeks later.

Again, this would be my fantasy (although peripherally it would involve Giada DeLaurentiis, as usual):

2 x Obi-Wan Kenobi (Pilot)
2 x Turbo Tank Driver
2 x Clone Commander (Green)
2 x Clone Trooper (Shocktrooper)
2 x Clone Pilot (Black)
2 x Mustafar Sentry

Or, if they have to do a reship case with older figures, do this one, based on what people actually are looking for, in addition to this case assortment:

2 x Clone Trooper (41)
2 x Clone Trooper (Shocktrooper)
2 x Clone Commander (Green)
2 x Anakin Skywalker (Mustafar)
2 x Commander Bacara
1 x General Grievous (9)
1 x Darth Vader (11)

And here's my guess as to what that case the Clone Pilot will be included in will be, given Hasbro's track record:

1 x Clone Pilot (repaint)
2 x Neimoidian Warrior
2 x Wookiee Warrior
1 x Clone Trooper (41)
1 x Clone Commander (Green)
1 x Commander Bacara
2 x General Grievous (9)
2 x Darth Vader (11)
