I bet the Commando turned out badly (like ****** articulation, bad execution) and they're packing it 1 per case because they think it'll flop. But of course, they wouldn't use that same rationale to pack C-3PO with battledroid head at 1 per case.  ::)

According to some info I got from EE this morning, here's how the case assortment looks:

Star Wars Saga Collection Action Figures Wave 3:
1x Clone Trooper
1x Sora Bulq
1x Jango Fett
1x Scorch (Republic Commando)
2x Sun Fac
2x C-3PO/Battle Droid
2x Poggle the Lesser
2x Yoda

How can Hasbro still have their heads so far up their asses to only pack the Clone and Commando as 1 per case?  Mind boggling.



EE describes the mysterious Clone has an orange Utapaun Clone Trooper.

The Utapau trooper... and they pack him one per case.  You know, this is really amateur hour on Hasbro's part.  Seriously.  No fan boy whining or hyperbole here.  They slip the most anticipated clone next year into a turkey assortment, with gonzo pack outs, and they will end up jerking around a lot of collectors.

Utapua Clone Trooper!!!  Cool beans!  The fact that he is 1x per case is major suckage!   >:(

I pop back into this thread and see the picture of that great Utapau trooper, and then see that its in this sucktastic wave packed 1 per case.  Blimey!  At least we're getting one, and I really hope it won't be too tough to find.  I really like these ROTS troops, keep bringing 'em on ;).

Utapau trooper in the Geonosis wave--big WTF? Now, think about that. THAT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE! Why would a Wookiee—an eight foot tall Wookiee—want to live on Endor with a bunch of two foot tall Ewoks? That does not make sense!


Sorry ... where was I again? ;) Oh yeah ... Utapau trooper on Geonosis makes no sense ... and anyway, 1x per case--ditto WTF? ??? ::)

Also, it looks like Yoda will come with a removable robe.

I'm still very much looking forward to this wave more than any of the others, with the possible exception of the Coruscant wave.

Utapau...not...Geonosis...

I'll still take it and won't complain.

I doubt Hasbro would have completely forgotten a figure in their official update, so I'm guessing that figure either won't be made or will be found in another wave.



Hah!  I looks like I'll have to eat my words.  I thought Hasbro was a little more on top of things than to forget a Clone.   ::)

So not only did Hasbro completely forget to mention this clone in their official news, but they're also packing him 1x case.  Assclowns.

Since I highly doubt they are using a new sculpt for the Clone, which sculpt is that?  #6 from ROTS?

I kind of thought that is what it looked like too.  The "removable" shoulder pad thing seems to be present in that picture, but I could be wrong.

That's what I used for my decision too.

One per case?  Here we go again...

But a great addition and it looks very nice.

But one damn Clone per case???

That's bizzare - but at least it makes a medicore wave into a semi-decent one.

I'm guessing that the only reason this Clone is in this wave is because Cody is in the next wave and this Clone will continue to ship with the Coruscant Wave.   I think they are just slipping it out early with the Geo wave so they get enough of them out there...  or at least that's my hopeful side talking. 

I hate to imagine having to track down my five (1 carded, 4 loose) if they are 1x per case for only one wave.   :-\

I have a conspiracy theory of my own:

The bizarre / insane case breakdowns are designed to encourage collectors to order full cases from EE.com.

There's no reason to look for the clones at retail - see the 501st and shock trooper.
