I like the idea of an Order 66 pack, but my vote would be for
- Commander Gree
- Commander Cody
- Commander Neyo
- Commander Bacara
- Sidious Hologram

And a Fallen Jedi Pack
- Ki-Adi Mundi
- Aayla Secura
- Adi Gallia
- Zett Jukassa
- Quinlan Vos (why not)  ;)

EE is already doing something like that with the Stormtrooper, Rebel Commando, Sandtrooper, Astromechs, AOTC Clones x4 Variations etc. Though I'd like to see them do it on a larger scale, like you're suggesting.

Wait, Entertainment Earth is going to offer multipacks of Stormtroopers? Do you know if they are going to be the VOTC versions?

No, the army builder packs Tedious speaks of are white mailer box 4-packs...  They did a Commtech Stormie set, Sandtrooper set (the only good set, though the Stormies were nice at the time), Endor Rebels, and Fleet Troopers...  They're ok sets, and I'd take them over the Enterainment Earth concept of makign the 4-packs a display item that costs you an arm and a leg if you want to actually build a sizeable army.

The astromechs fall under that latter category.  Nice figures, bad packaging for supposedly "army building" focused sets.

I'm ok with Battlepack army builder sets like Target's Coruscant Clone set.  I think that's neat, and if they used quality figures like VOTC Stormtroopers I'd be happy as a clam to buy these for $25 - $30...  The idea's neat but I don't see it happening only because Hasbro's so ass backwards about how it handles army builders and exclusives.  The best you can hope for is overpriced sets, or things you couldn't find enough of.  TRU getting in droves of 5-packs of just VOTC Stormtroopers is a pipe dream, but it'd be great.

Oh, alright. I was just confused because he did not use the past tense.
