I tottaly missed the K-Mart notes, but my friend saw it and kept trying to tell me that they were K-Mart exclusives. Even then I had a hard time believing.

The way I see it, it's good news/bad news. The good news is, you're right, these should be abundant. The bad news is, these should be abundant, meaning that as each set sits, it jeoperdizes the next set from comming out. :P

I'll tell you what, seeing all the sets in person, they look sweet! Even in the packaging. The varient clone set was displayed loose and I don't recall the articulation set up, all I remember is the the pose was very nice. Also, the newly sculpted, movie accurate blaster rife on the Sandtrooper is a very nice addition.

Apparently, I had just missed the stolen figure incedent. When I ran into Jared taking the pix he said it had only happened a short time ago. What a bummer.  I hope they guy is stupid enough to try to sell it and get caught. >:(

The other clones look nice though, both SA bodies!

So, it appears that from the little signs next to the 5-packs at SDCC that most of these rehash sets will now be TRU exclusives...

Good news in that these re-pack monsters won't clog the shelves at Target (where I do most of my shopping  ;)).


Hmmm. Considering all those TRU 4-packs, I guess it makes sense.

I'm looking at my calendar and it doesn't look like the first of April....

Stop being so funny. >:(

You caught me off guard and I woke up my sleeping kids from laughing. :P

Then again, maybe I should just not be on the internet right now...

Illogical. :P

Perhaps they're just repackaging all the MF's they didn't sell for the OTC.

This year's comic-con seems to be a downer in terms of new product. Think about it, last year we were eagerly waiting for VOTC and OTC images. There were a lot of cool figures coming out on cool cards. This year: annoying exclusives and repainted figures. ???

Clone evolution variations! Awsome. EE has the 4th case assortment of the Evolutions sets listed as a case of 4 clonetroopers. Could be promissing.

All I have to say is.... interesting. :-\

Clones good. R2 unit good. Everything But, KBZ's (and Coleman's) reasoning is sound. ;) If it's true, I can live with it. Maybe even forgive it.

As expected, here's my cynical and pessimistic prediction:

1.  Battle Pack 1 ships to retail in a case by itself.  These sell moderately well, and retailers reorder the next case in twice the amount they ordered the first.

2.  Battle Packs 2 and 3 ship to retail in a case that also includes another Battle Pack 1.  After initial sales to carded/boxed completists, the Battle Packs begin to sit.

3.  Battle Pack 4 (the Hoth pack) ships to retail in a case that also includes more of Battle Pack 3 (the OT one, which will be the worst selling one of the initial three, IMO), and due to the lackluster figure selection of the Hoth set, and the increasing glut of the OT set, the fourth case assortment never makes it to retail.

4.  Hasbro cancels the fifth Battle Pack (the one that everyone wants out of the five anyway; once again, Hasbro wastes the best for last) citing lack of retail support and/or collector interest, and three years from now, they finally release the 501st Clone as a single carded figure in the regular action figure line.

I hope that doesn't happen, but I'm not going to touch the first four Battle Packs with a ten foot pole (damn you Lisa and your restraining order!  I shall burn an effigy of you with the school bullies!), and the fifth is the only one that I'm at all interested in.  Naturally, it will be the most difficult to find of them all.

This sums the whole battle pack line up in a nutshell.
