Title: 30AC "Battle on Mygeeto" Battle Pack
Post by: jedi_master_sal on January 2, 2008, 05:26 PM
Two NEW packs along with two old ones coming out this year:
Battle Pack Assortment - Wave 5 - May 2008
1x 87815 Battle on Mygeeto Battle Pack
1x 87788 Hoth Speeder Bike Patrol Battle Pack
1x Clone Attack on Coruscant
1x Betrayal on Bespin

http://www.4-inches.de/inhalt/home.htm


I'm VERY interested in seeing what is with each of these sets. I  might bite on these.

Good Choices. The Mygeeto BP is obvious who is in it. Ki-Adi-Mundi, Bacara, 2 Galactic Marines. Maybe we will get an kit-bash Bacara with using the SA Clone body. The Hoth Speeder Bike Patrol sounds great, just has long it comes with 2 VTAC Snowtroopers but I think its an error because I think its the delay Hoth Patrol BP that comes with Luke, Tauntaun and Wampa that was announced at the Comic Con last year.

if these are VATC Snowtroopers packed in, I'll grab a couple.

I could always use more Vintage Anniversary Thirtieth Collection snowtroopers! JK.  ;D The Hoth pack sounds interesting. I will also probably end up buying the Mygeeto pack for my bridge diorama. I'm guessing the Mygeeto one will include Ki-Adi, two Galactic Marines, the crappy Bacara, and an octuptarra droid.

Yeah, I'm hoping for an Octuptarra droid in this as well. I don't really need anymore Galactic Marines as I have at least 24 of them and I certainly don't want another Bacara unless it's now SA.

There is that multilegged walker in the background that could be in the pack if this was an Ultra BP, but that's extremely doubtful.

The Hoth set would be interesting if it's a mishmash of a scout and snowtrooper.
I have to reserve judgment on these until I see some kind of visual evidence, but I'm leaning towards getting one of each.

Do we really need more Galactic Marines already?

Hmmm.  The Hoth set is certainly intriguing.  Especially if Hasbro decides to use the artwork from The Incredible Cross Sections as the basis for the troopers in that set.  But what kind of value would we get for this price point?  In a best case scenario, I would hope for 2 speeder bikes with riders and a VTAC Snowtrooper in this particular pack.

As for the Mygeeto set?  I'm fairly confident that we would get Ki-Adi Mundi in this set along with some Galactic Marines.  But the question marks for me are 2 possible figures for this set:  Commander Bacara and the Tri-Droid or Octuptarra Droid.

Commander Bacara is in SERIOUS need of resculpting.  It was a sub-par figure in 2005, and every other Clone Commander with that helmet that Hasbro has shipped has been equally sub-par.  I would very much like to see the SA Clone or Evolutions Clone retooled into a new Commander Bacara.  Doing that for this battle pack would be an excellent selling point with a collector base that's become rather smart and equally critical on articulation and sculpting.

As for the Tri-Droid or Octuptarra Droid?  It would be a logical inclusion in a Mygeeto battle pack, especially to depict this particular battle.  We don't see that many other droids in our brief glimpse into that battle.  But does Hasbro include a new figure like the Tri-Droid in this battle pack, and potentially impact sales of the basic figure?  I think that's another interesting question.

Well, if it has a softgoods kama like the upcoming Commander Keller or the VTAC Snowtrooper figures, I'd be in for this set.  Because the current kama on the Galactic Marine severely impacts the figure's posability.  Just do a side-by-side of the VTAC Snowtrooper with the Galactic Marine.  It's really a no-brainer move.

I don't mind the speederbike except for the handles. If they were the more accurate sideways ones then I'd be fine with the old one with the new handles and in this case painted white.

Neither of these sets really excite me. I can see myself picking up the Hoth set but who is included on the Mygeeto set really will determine if i pick it up.

So, it looks like the Mygeeto set is mostly repacks/repaints unless Baracca turns out to be a kitbash. (can anyone tell from that pic?)

The Hoth set defintely looks like kit-bashed pilots to me with the PotF2 sculpt bikes.  Pretty much in line with what folks here were guessing.
Title: Re: Battle of Mygeeto and Hoth Speeder Bike Patrol Battle Packs!

Those look pretty good, definitely hope to pick up the Hoth speederbike pack - glad to see those troopers.  Thanks for the pics Scott.

If you look at Bacara's leg, you see it's bent at the knee slightly, which I agree with CHEWIE that it's probably a kitbash to get him more articulation (pretty simple custom most customizer's have done already).  The others are all repack/repaints by my estimation in that set, though the SBD may have the holes filled in?  Doesn't the comic SBD have the holes filled in on its chest?

These both look great. I'll definitely be getting two openers of each set in addition to my MIB ones.

Post by: JACKOFTRADZE on January 4, 2008, 03:18 PM
Finally, Battle packs that I can get excited about. These are great! Thanks for the pics.
 I will buy many Mygeeto just to get the Ki-Adi fodder alone. And the Octapurra Droid is already in a BP, it makes the standard $7 version not look so attractive anymore to army build with.

Does the Hoth set come with the AT-AT too? ;D A little skimpy, there should be at least one more figure in there, but still they are cool kit bashes & set.

Does anyone know is the Stap pack still on tap this year? I would buy two of those too.

Looks like all repacks in the Mygeeto set which i expected, pass for me. I may pick up the hoth set.

Post by: iFett on January 4, 2008, 03:42 PM
I think I said this before in the UPB threads, but I'm still amazed about how excited the majority of you are with a bunch of repaints/rereleases.  I'm still a carded & boxed collector at the moment so I'm looking forward to the presentation of these sets, but I just can't see the "wowy zowy" factor if I was an opener other than the fact that these are likely $20 bp's and I highly doubt that the majority of you are customizers..

These look like otherwise crappy sets with the exception of the Speederbike dudes and the larger droid.
Title: Re: Battle of Mygeeto and Hoth Speeder Bike Patrol Battle Packs!
Post by: CHEWIE on January 4, 2008, 03:47 PM
I dunno - I guess we've just come to accept that repacks are a part of the line now.  And we'd rather see 5 repacked figures at $20.00 than seeing them individually for $6-$7 each. 

As long as battle packs come with good choices of figures and pack-ins, I'm all for them.

Yeah, I have to agree with Chewie here.

While I'm a definite for the Hoth set however, the Mygeeto set may hold me back. It's a good set, but unless Bacara is way improved or SA well I might not get it. If he is though, I can readily absorb the rest of the figures as they are army builders, plus a Jedi for custom fodder.

We need some close up shots, specifically of the snowscouts and Bacara!

damn, I wish Hasbro wasn't being so tight lipped about this stuff. We already are finding out stuff they are prolly planning on releasing info about at ToyFare. So, it won't be new, just newish for detailed pics and such.

I think I'll pass on the Mygeeto set,  Baracca looks like he has new legs but it looks like someone forgot to finish painting his head.   Hopefully this is just a preproduction pic and they will catch it in production.   The Hoth Speeder set I will get even though they are just repaints and looks like no mod were done to them.

Fair comments but the fact is they are $20 sets to wow at for the value.
 If you actually did open your figures & army build you might even be a little more jazzed about them. (I think you are underestimating how many of us do customize.) Getting a bunch of great figures for $20 can make you go wow when the figures rock. You have to open them and check out how good they really are, the plastic prison does not do them justice you are missing half your purchase. I put a lot of wow in the Mygeeto pack because every figures is great there are no weak ones like most BP's. I am very happy to see a non action feature Baccura, superb army builders & great custom Ki-Adi fodder in one set. And it even comes with the not yet released in the states Octapurra droid. So its not just a repack depending on the point of view. I will give that a WOW in my book.

I will give you that the Hoth set is nothing to jump up for but it still beats the hell out of getting shadow or action feature type figures that are just to dumb for words.

Post by: Darth Broem on January 5, 2008, 08:12 AM
Yeah, I really like the Hoth set.  I can just pretend they were just off the screen like those mini-rigs in the vintage days.  For some reason the Hoth one fits into those scenes for me.  I ALMOST would not mind Lucas inserting a few those into the Hoth scenes....NAH!  Just kidding.

Mygeeto pack is kind of nice.   At least you get one of everthing.  There are plenty of Galactic Marines if you need more of those on the pegs...surprisingly.  I do think Bacarra will be an improved kit-bash.  The trick will be actually finding these packs.  Unless they are not exclusives?

Post by: Darth_Anton on January 5, 2008, 09:33 AM
Mygeeto set - crud, a "new" Bacarra as I feared and federation repaints. I'm gonna have to get this one.

Hoth set - despite the POTF2 bikes right down to the "T" bar and the mostly Bikerscout bodies, I'm still kind of geeking out over this set.

Post by: roron corobb on January 5, 2008, 04:20 PM
I didn't really think that one was worth $20 either.  :-\  At least it came with two "new" figures and was the first of its kind.  I wonder if the two troops will be identical?  If so, maybe I can live with just getting one loose and splitting the pack with someone.  ;)

I'm right there with you on this one. They Scout Troopers look cool, but the Speederbikes are a major bust. If you are looking for some one to go in halves, let me know ;).

I think the best of these two is the Mygeeto set, just wish I could see if Bacara as the articluation we all want on him. If it's just legs than it isn't much of an improvement. That would only fix part of the problem. His arms need the fix too.

I'm definately feelin' the Mygeeto set, so I'll work that into my collection and my 2008 budget. Tri Droid, SBD, and cardboard background are well worth the $20. The other stuff is just gravy.

The Hoth set I'm on the fence about. I would need two sets for my Imperial army due to all of my troop squads being multiples of four, so it might be easier and definately cheaper for me to just skip this set. Oh, I hate the speeder bikes as well.

Post by: Darth_Anton on January 7, 2008, 09:08 AM
I agree, value wise, all the sets are much better than buying carded figures any which way you slice it, so complaining about 4 versus 5 pieces seems a bit too nit picky.

Just curious, but does anyone (Jeff maybe?) know which battle packs are still coming in the TAC line?  Are either of these two (Mygeeto and Speeder Bike Patrol), or the Hoth one we were shown at Toy Fair coming out prior to the 7/26 date?  Obviously, we saw the package mock up for the Clone Wars set, but I don't know that we've heard anything about any other battle packs, aside from the TRU exclusive ones (STAP and Hoth w/Taun Taun, Wampa and Luke).  Anyways, just curious if any of these will be out during the basic figure lull that's coming up.

They said they were "fairly" sure that the Mygeeto and Hoth Speeder Bike sets would still be in the 30AC packaging, but the Hoth Han/Probe Droid set would be the first in the new Legacy/white packaging.  Also, the Mygeeto/Hoth Speeder Bike set should be out before July according to them...

We did not show the Mygeeto pack as our focus was on Fall for the most part. You do have sharp eyes. The Bacara figure has been upgraded to an SA body for this set, using the same helmet and detachable gear.

It sounds like Bacara will be getting an SA upgrade in the Mygeeto battle pack, which will probably be enough to make me pick it up.  I wouldn't mind having extras of the other figures in the set anyways.

Me either, except Ki-Adi Mundi. Meh, another unwanted Jedi figure, going to the donation pile. Hmm, I could custom him though. Well, I planned on getting the set anyway. I just won't buy more than one. No need for extra Ki-Adi's or Bacara's.

Slick. I was going to pick this set up anyway for the revised Bacara and didn't mind an extra Galactic Marine. But the paint scheme on the Tri-Droid is excellent. And fr some strange reason, I really dig the "shadow" Super Battler droid. I don't know what I'll do with another Ki-Adi though. Guess he'll just get packed away.

Not really surprising, I wouldn't pay $24.99 at TRU either.  This pack is worth about $10 to 15 for me.

This thing is definitely out though - it's not something we're all foaming at the mouth over.  I could take this or leave it.

I think one or two hit locally at TRU. I'll be waiting for them to hit Target myself.

Yeah - if I find them at Target, I will definitely grab them there and then return them using my TRU receipt.

My motivation for picking them up was pretty simple: What if I never see them again?

I know there's a good chance Target or WalMart will get them, but what if they don't? I picked up the one I did so I would have one in my MIB/MOC collection. I'm convinced that this battlepack will get re-released in the blue/white Saga packaging so if I don't find a set to open in the TAC packaging, I'm not overly concerned. I could definitely see Target and WalMart not ordering any more stock of the TAC Battlepack assortment.

Unless you're driving around with the Mygeeto battlepack and receipt in the car all the time when you make your runs, it's not even worth the gas to do this.

When is the last time that happened though? That used to motivate me for the longest time with everything, but I learned that, with a few exceptions from a few years ago, I'll eventually find everything. Besides, I'm sure we'll see this again in Legacy packaging.

Actually around me, this happens a lot. It also happens a lot with items that come out near the end of a line, specifically right before a packaging change.

Well, I typically hit TRU and a Target either going to work or going home from work, so it's not that big of a deal, but with gas prices like they are, I understand where you're coming from.

Not really.  Most of us hit up Target or TRU or Wal-Mart at least a couple of times a week.  If you can find something in 90 days, you just have to put the old one in the car for your next trip and voila - no real extra effort to return it.   ;)

Okay, well if it's on your way to/from work, you're in luck  :)

If it's a 20 mile round trip like it is for me, it makes no sense.

For me, gas is starting to play a big role in my toy runs.  It's not that I can't afford the gas, it's that I can't see wasting a lot of money doing all these toy runs - when I used to be able to do it for a little money.

The Battle of Mygeeto BP is currently in stock at HTS, for anyone interested.  I don't know of any other promo code aside from pony10 (for 10% off), which brought the total to $22.83 for me - I can live with that with the gas prices what they are.

Found and passed on this at Target today.  Already have numerous Mundis, the Bacara is as simple of a custom as it gets, the Galactic Marine is a different color than the regular 30 AC issue and doesn't match them (looks weird) and the SBD and Tri Droid have too funky of a paint job.

A very easy pass.

I got this as well as the 4 new galactic Heroes sets on HTS (clone commanders and Jedi). Also squeezed in a Transformer into this order to.

Was nice to save a bit using the code.

Thanks Brian!

Is the Galactic Marine more in the color of the one that came with the Battlefront set (darker scheme)?  I really like that version.

Battlefront is in the middle, Mygeeto is on the far right.

Yeah - this new version just looks odd to me, I'm not quite sure why but I think a lot of it has to do with the light gray legs - the Mygeeto version of this figure just looks better with darker gray legs.

On friday I got delivery of a few figures from this pack, I won on ebay the Marine, the Tri-doird and the new Bacara.  The price wasn't so bad, but the seller advertised a discount on shipping, which was $0.50 off the $3.00 per figure  :(  Of course the outside of the package lists the seller's actual cost for shipping at $2.10  >:(

So I open the box and the way the Tri-Droid was packaged the guns are all mangled  >:(  I think I'll get them to straighten out, but man, this transaction didn't go so great, especially because I was really excited to get this figures.....

That's why I seldom use e-bay anymore. Everyone's abusing the system.

When I left feedback that I was happy with the transaction except i thought the shipping was pricey, the seller replied with a comment that I had paid quick but didn't give her the chance to correct the situation before I left feedback.  What?  After I won the auction I asked you why the invoice didn't show any discount, except there was a discount just a tiny one.  Then you're surprised that I described you're pricey shipping as pricey?  Give me a break.  I think I'll try and train the guns so they're straight and remember not to bit on anything from that seller again.

Try here Rob:

There's a 20% off coupon floating around too - I think it's MDCREW or something like that.  I can't do all of the work for you.

That code worked, and they had the whole ROTS wave in stock, so I went ahead and ordered those too.

I think the shadow biker scout and hoth biker scout could be re-released in a legacy saga legends wave.

I would support the shadow scout. Don't know about the Hoth biker though.

I'd support both just so I could get some of the Hoth guy to custom up a bit...  To me the bikes are crummy so I'm not interested in them, but I wouldn't mind more scouts.  They look decent to me, but that's me.
