Actually, based on the way the box is labelled (and the other stuff pictured on the back of the box), it looks like that is an upcoming $20 Battle Pack and not one of the Order 66 packs...

Very cool.  Hopefully the price stays at $20 or lower, but this is the kind of thing that I'd like the Battle Packs to evolve into.

That's just because you're anti-clone and pro-Naboo.  The BARC Trooper from the ROTS line has nothing to do with this because this new battle pack is about getting 2 troops from Neyo's squadron, which would cost $7.50 each if regularly carded x 2 = $15 anyhow.  So $5 for 2 bikes tossed in with the 2 Neyo's squad figures for $20 is fan****ingtastic.

Very Cool set indeed.  I think I still have a dozen of those Target Clones to go with them too.

I am not buying PT stuff next year, but this is definately tempting.

What sculpt are they using for these 2?  One looks like it has the ATTE Gunner arms...(sadly)

By the pics I've seen (and I've seen some HUGE close ups  ;)), both appear to use the 2003 Clone Wars sculpt (which was the same sculpt that was used for the Target version of this trooper).

As promised, JD.com has some more news on this set...  As per our front page.

(http://www.jedidefender.com/news/images/12-06/tn_neyo_clone.jpg) (http://www.jedidefender.com/image.pl?http://www.jedidefender.com/news/images/12-06/neyo_clone.jpg) (http://www.jedidefender.com/news/images/12-06/tn_neyo_saleucami.jpg) (http://www.jedidefender.com/image.pl?http://www.jedidefender.com/news/images/12-06/neyo_saleucami.jpg)
Neyo and his Grunt sure do appear to be using the 2003 sculpt like Jeff said, at least to me that's what it appears to be...  Nice looking figures, and definitely with 2 bikes it makes a nice set, even for $20.  A little rough to army build, but the bikes are probably some of the nicer vehicles to come out of 2005 really when you think about it.

Check out the story on the front page though or clicky the images above to see the close-ups.

I hope that this opens the doors for Hasbro to retool the aging Speederbike mold so they can release a similar set such as this for the OTC.  2 VtSC Scouts on new bikes - I'd be all over that.

Post by: Jesse James on December 30, 2006, 05:20 PM
The BARC sculpt maybe was the best vehicle of '05...  I'm happy to get them in the set.  A new speederbike is needed though, and JD asked about one in a past Q&A and Hasbro sounded very receptive and interested in the idea, so it might happen.

If they do one, I'd love to see a clear stand with it like the Library Droid had...  Something for the hovering effect would be nice.

These figures look friggin' great to me...  I'm wondering though, how will they sit on the bike if they use the '03 sculpt?  It's not known to move much at the leg without sort of prying outward at the hip.  That could spell some warping issues on these.  Think along the lines of how the Utapau Trooper warped at the hip because of how he's packaged in a running pose.

HAHA! so im not the only one who had warped leps on the utapau trooper. but you do have a point. the bkes will most likely mess up the leg articulation and make the figures look funny.

amen.

PS Yeah those utapua clones had hecka warping. It was disappoiting especially cause it was preventable just by not packing it in that dumb pose, but it was still an excellent army builder, Ive got quite a few.

Thtings showing in Asia tend to mean at least a Month till they make it through to retail distribution, and I think that's generous...  It can be longer.  I know from the contact that some other companies have with fan bases that they can tell you things are boxed and shipping from Asia, and they'll give a 3 month time period before they hit retail in the U.S., and they're pretty accurate with that...  Could be a little while yet.

I can still use a break, haha.

I would think that the BARC Speeders are probably the same sculpt as the one that was packed with Stass Allie.  That one was pretty good, whereas the version with the Clone Scout had the silly big wheel and zip cord.

Oh, well, I'll see them for sure (MetalJedi I'd be happy to pick one up for you).  I've got 2 Walmarts and 1 of them is great for getting ****.  But I am never for exclusives.  I just don't see the point.  Collectors are rabid.  We all go everywhere to get figures anyhow.  I wonder if it really works in terms of getting people into the store, at least people that weren't gonna go anyhow in pursuit of the basic figures of the month.  But what the hell do I know.  I spent one year in retail and decided that I wanted to fix teeth for a living.

WalMart?  Great.  Just great.

The window of opportunity on these WalMart exclusives (excepting the Cantina band tin set) is usually so narrow that you're lucky to get an exclusive at WalMart.  This is really where having some good collector networking going on helps out.  But it also prompts silly late night trips to 24 hour WalMart stores to see if you can score the damn things while they're stocking the floor.  Drat!  And double drat!!!
Title: Re: "Treachery on Saleucami" Battle Pack
Post by: I Am Sith on January 12, 2007, 10:41 PM
I am not pleased about this at all.  I've been able to get all the Target exclusives since ROTS came out, but never saw the Separation of the Twins figures and only saw one Cantina Band tin recently.  I'm also fairly sure that I won't see the 5 exclusive figures from the final 22.  This has just got BAD written all over it.

Looks like I'm going to have to get on Dressel Rebel's and MetalJedi's distribution list once these come out!
Title: Re: "Treachery on Saleucami" Battle Pack
Post by: Jesse James on January 13, 2007, 03:37 AM
WM, being the hit-or-miss store that it is, is not a good outlet for any exclusive to me...  Sometimes you have the Cantina set situation where they were abundant, and other times you have the TIE Bomber situation where you may or may not see them ever...  Or to make it more recent, the Twins sets (I saw them and even saw clearance, but I know I'm the exception, not the rule, when it came to those twins sets).

WM definitely isn't anything to go "WOO HOO!" over since having a WM around you doesn't mean you'll actually get the item(s) at your store, haha.

Believe me...  As a collector of a toy line that ONLY WM carries (besides etailers), I can definitely say I'm never happy to hear WM has an exclusive, much less one that is a movie clone set that people will be going nuts to get, and some will want many of.  :(

True.  But unlike a Target clone, non-movie though as it may be, it's not being held hostage for $13 plus tax for a single figure.

It's exclusive, but at least it's not a rip off.  It could be worse.

I'm not thrilled that this is a WM exclusive either, but hopefully it won't be too tough to find.  Most of the WM exclusive stuff (aside from the Cantina tin set recently) have been "blink and you miss them".  I just happened to be in the right place at the right time for the Sep. of the Twins packs, or I never would have seen those.  I've probably had the best luck at Target out of all the retailers, so I was kind of hoping it would be there, but hopefully WM will come through with this one.  You would think a set with two clones and two bikes could have sold at all the retailers, and not required an exclusive :).
Title: Re: "Treachery on Saleucami" Battle Pack
Post by: DoctorPadawan on January 15, 2007, 12:59 PM
Is there really any good place to get an exclusive in this day and age?  It seems like more often than not, each and every retailer is making it more and more difficult to get the items they've been given as exclusives by Hasbro.  For example:

-TARGET:  Is downright spiteful toward collectors, seeing them as the lowest form of scum.  When the exclusives finally do show up, they sit in the back for weeks on end until the employees finally get around to doing a reset, at which point they quickly disappear, often times before anyone even knows the store had them in the first place.  They also pretty much refuse to make them available online (the only one I know of that they ever did make available online was the Saga A-Wing back in 2003).

-WAL-MART:  Is hit-and-miss in terms of when and how many (if at all) a particular store gets and they don't even have employees around to help the customers in the first place.  Like Target, they apparently also refuse to make their exclusives available online (with the exception of the "AWESOME" Early Bird pack in 2005 which they probably still have a mountain of in their warehouses).

-KAY-BEE:  The fact that Kay Bee continues to exist baffles me to no end, given their high prices, dwindling physical locations, and the huge backlog of 10 year old Robocop figures in some stores.  At least they have made some effort to put their few exclusives (12" Chewbacca, Unleashed Vader) up on their website for people to order.

-TOYS R US:  The only one of the retailer exclusive folks that actually puts their exclusives up on the website for people to order.  Granted, the Amazon.com years were tremendously horrid as far as actually fulfilling those orders went, and so far the TRU.com as its own entity doesn't seem to be doing that much better, but the exclusives they've gotten (with the exception of the Grievous Battle Pack) have shown up in their stores more frequently and in larger numbers than they have in the past.  That said, you can never tell if a trip to TRU is going to be a complete waste of time (9 to 1 odds in that favor), since their employees have perfected the art of the "Everything we have is on the shelves" mantra.

-HASBRO TOY SHOP:  All I need to say is this:  HTS cannot keep its own products in stock for months on end.  Case closed.

So yeah, other than it being something that people could preorder and guarantee getting months ahead of time from a retailer's website, is there ANYONE that would be an acceptable handler of an exclusive?
Title: Re: "Treachery on Saleucami" Battle Pack
Post by: Diddly on January 15, 2007, 01:10 PM
While I'm not fond of this being exclusive, I'm not going to let the Wal-Mart part bring me down. I've managed to find all of the WM exclusives so far, although for most of them I do believe I was at the right place at the right time.

I must question why this must be an exclusive though. I guess it does follow Hasbro's formula of making the crappy BP's clog shelves everywhere while the good BP's are exclusive and hard to find.

Well, I might as well mark this one off as a 'no' now, since I will probably never see it...

Although, one thing, if it's as abundant as the Cantina set, I should be good to go.

It is pretty stupid for this to be an exclusive.  If any of them are exclusive, it should be ones like the Arena one... there won't be that much clawing at each other to fight over that, but anything with clones or stormies shouldn't be exlusive, especially if it's something that was in the film.

Personally Walmarts in my area have been good to me, but if this HAD to be an exclusive, I'd prefer Target simply because the last few Battle Packs with clones they've had have been very well stocked from my experience - Attack on Coruscant, Senate Pack, Mace Windu set.

The other positive, in my experience, is you can actually track that stuff down at Target early by using the DPCI's and get an employee to help you get them...  Saves the rat-race of routine trips to WM, especially if you're like me and prefer to avoid WM rather than hitting 3 or 4 of them a week...  I usually get to one routinely but exclusives are always a prod to look more intensely and at other stores...  Not that I want to.

Their inevitable **** distribution system doesn't help them either though...  Of the 5 or 6 WM's I have in my area (1 hour away from where I am any given direction generally, with a couple half that distance or so), I think only 3 had the VTSC figures...  Some had overloads of Epic Battles/Greatest Whatever figures while others had steady restocking of Saga figures...  Some carry a full line of 1:18 military **** I collect (WM's the only retailer to carry it generally) while others had at most 3 pegs for figures that never restocked...  Some stores have piles upon piles of the Collector tins, while others have 0, and others have maybe a dozen total of all the types.

WM is basically an inconsistant mess when it comes to distribution so I'm not a fan of them getting much of anything...  Will these be Cantina-ish exclusives that were super easy to find?  Or will these be TIE Bombers or Jabba Band 2-packs?  You just don't seem to know with WM.

Also hitting shelves are the ambush on illum and geonosis battle packs. Still no sighn of the capture of tantive 4 or the dagobah one but i have a feeling they'll be here early feb and middle of feb.

Not from any official place like SWtoyshop, Hasbro Toy Shop, EE or NFC. But probably from places that use runners (to go get them from their local WM) like Brians Toys, Cloud City Collectables and BBTS.

that is if I could find the toys half the time.  There is money to be made with us collectors and yet.......
you know the rest.

As excited as I am about this battlepack, it looks like it's gonna be hit and miss with this one.

This is my opinion also. I would spend a lot more money on Hasbro products if they'd ever show up anywhere for any amount of time.

I came across 4 or 5 cases of these tonight at my local WM, and grabbed a couple out of an already opened case, before the manager came and pulled them all back into their warehouse citing their Saturday street date on the TAC line.  Much shorter and thicker than the usual BPs.

EDIT:  Is this a WM exclusive (just re-read this thread title)?  If so, I didn't even realize that.  Makes me feel even better about finding these then...

Jedipurge, the BARC seemed to be pretty much the same sculpt but I didn't look at it too closely... I don't think this one comes apart like the Stass Ali one.  But I could be wrong.  The colors are definitely different though, this one has red markings while Ali's has the green.

Still, it's nice to have some troopers/commanders to go along with my ROTS Target exclusive Clones.  Gotta build the units up!

I got a set yesterday. I think it's the body from the their Target counterparts. They seem to have the same neck.

It's a bit of of bummer that the legs get all tweaked from being forced onto the bikes, but they're great-looking figures.

Post by: DoctorPadawan on March 24, 2007, 04:35 PM
Just got my set on a short road trip to a nearby town that had really gone the extra mile in terms of putting new stuff out for the reset.  The last time I saw a Wal-Mart this well (and cleanly) stocked in the SW section was during the Midnight Madness for ROTS.  Tons of 30AC figures, Vader coin albums, vehicles (Tiin's Fighter and the white TIE), Galactic Heroes, Unleashed, Titaniums, and so forth. 

Anyway, the bikes are, in fact, the same as the one packed with Stass Allie (although these have red highlights) without foot pegs on the pedals.  The figures are, in fact, based on the Target exclusive Clone Trooper (which was based on the CW SA Clone Trooper), but the midsection below the ball-jointed torso appears to be different/resculpted slightly to allow the belt/pauldron to fit acceptably.  The legs are, as expected, a bit warped from being on the bike, but the hands are the real warpage problem.  Neyo can't even hold the handlebars, much less hold a gun, and the other Clone doesn't fare too much better. 

Still, the figures are nice enough to where I'm considering buying another set when they show up locally so I can have non-warped Neyo and Clone figures (I'm sure one of our wonderful customizers or someone else would be interested in the bikes alone).  Oh, and a heads-up to those of you who open and toss the packaging: there are two short blasters included tied into the plastic insert in the lower left hand corner.  Not that the figures can hold them due to the hand warpage, but still, just an FYI so you don't throw them in the dumpster. :)

I found  these three times in the last two days while looking for items I need for my students to do a science experiment in class next week. I have to say that I passed. The visor for me is one issue. Hasbro should have done a ROTS Clone Commander #33 Visor trick on that. The bikes are cool and interesting, but in reality, for me, they take up room I don't have, don't fit a theme and as such, I have to say pass. That and I passed on Stass Allie because I thought that the figure could be made better.

The day I found this pack I had to hit up 4 Walmarts. After striking out at the first 3 Walmarts, I was a bit irked so I took the UPC code up to customer service and asked them to find me the closest Walmart that had them in stock. Luckily there was a Walmart not even 10 minutes down the road that had 24 of them in stock. Why I didn't ask customer service for help at the first Walmart I checked escapes me.

I got a set the other night too and I'm the same as most others.  The visor on the one is annoying, Neyo's cool...  That said, judging by all the dead guys around in the background (which I think is a lifted still), they maybe looked like the Target (regular Clone with the markings on it) Clone anyway and Neyo's helmets aren't the common thing?  It works for me for now.  Helps me not want to army build this at all though one more set wouldn't hurt if I had the cash, haha.

No Cody legs. They're the same legs as the CW clone legs, but naturally widened (not ridiculously) due to the sitting position on the bike. The same thing happened to the clones that I had sitting on the edge of my Gunship. After not sitting, the legs should revert to a more neutral stance.

   Well, I bought and opened two sets today, and I couldn't be more pleased with what I purchased. The bikes are cool, and go nicely with all of the clones in my collection, especially the Elite Corps troopers. It's always nice to have more vehicles for the clones.
   The BARC troopers in this set are very cool. Neyo looks exactly like he did in the movie. The removable harness is also a nice touch. As for the BARC trooper with the binocular visor device, he is also very nice. I know I'm in the minority here, but I think the nonremovable binoculars look a lot nicer than the ones on Clone Commander and Bly; though an additional head with the binoculars in an up position would've been nice. One thing I'm confused about is why that clone would be using binoculars while he's riding a speeder bike. Isn't that somewhat dangerous?
Title: Re: Wal-Mart "Treachery on Saleucami" Battle Pack
Post by: Jesse James on April 6, 2007, 10:07 PM
Is he using them in the movie?  Or no?  Thinking about it, I can't quite recall.

I got a 2nd set tonight, kind of out of necessity to keep the Easter Bunny thing alive... long story.  The WM nearest me was down to one set, whereas it had about a dozen the other night, so these aren't sitting by me like I thought they might.  NOw, the other WM that had even more of them had, this past week, still about 12 total or so.

Post by: Greg on April 6, 2007, 10:51 PM
In the movie Neyo's wingman had no binoculars. There was (or looks to be) a clone corpse on the ground with the binoculars on the helmet. Perhaps that clone died because of a crash involving riding a speeder while using binoculars?

I found an endcap of these in Walmart at the back of the toy aisle, meanwhile there were none of these in the regular Star Wars section.  There were also coin album displays on the same endcap.

Make sure you do a walk around and check all the endcaps if you have no luck in the regular section.
Title: Re: Wal-Mart "Treachery on Saleucami" Battle Pack
Post by: Jesse James on April 9, 2007, 03:12 AM
Agreed...  I've noticed these sets, the 7" Unleashed exclusives, and Coin Folders are all seemingly without a dedicated slot in WM stores, so they're left to float on endcaps wherever the toy manager can find empty space.  Pretty odd...  Seems like maybe WM's weren't prepped for this stuff in their toy dept. plans.  I haven't seen them in the same section twice at my various WM's.
Title: Re: Wal-Mart "Treachery on Saleucami" Battle Pack

That's kind of how things are at our local store as well.  The 7" Unleashed exclusive, the coin albums, and the Treachery packs have been floating between different areas in the toy department.  It does look as if the Treachery packs are now sold out at our local store, although there are plenty of coin albums left (they were sharing an endcap).

I'll post these regular troops in my customs thread with some other work I've done lately like Cody, Kashyyyk Clone, and Super Battle Droid (accurate head/shoulder sculpt).

I don't get it, one of my stores has been showing these in stock (26 of them) for more than a week, yet they won't put them out.

Okay, they put something out randomly yesterday. My buddy called to tell me that he found one of the 26. ???

The employees or a scalper probably left with the other 25.

Ok. I finally found one of these. The problem is someone grabbed the clones out of it!!!!  :o

All that was left in the box was two bikes! >:(

I'm reading a LOT of that Paul but not seen it in my area so far.

Also around me, they're all gone...  No WM's seem to have them now.  They sold through real fast.  Film clone, $20 pack with 2 bikes and 2 figures...  I guess it was inevitable.

I apologize if this has already been posted, but I've been sifting through all of the Treachery at Saleucami threads and I haven't found an answer to my question yet. So here it goes.

Today at Walmart, I went to purchase one. There were five available and all of them look untampered and complete. Upon closer inspection, I noticed that all five packs did not have Commander Neyo. Instead, they had another Saleucami clone with the red visor. There were two clones, but the visored ones. The back of the box says that it should include a Neyo. The clones still were in their plastic supports, the thin clear plastic string was still tied around their hands and the tape did not look like it had been removed or torn in anyway. Plus, the case had recently been put out.

Is this a shipping and packaging mistake? I find it hard to believe that all five battlepacks were purchased and the commander neyo plucked out, replaced with another Saleucami clone, hands carefully retied to the bike etc... I'm not sure if scalpers did this. Is there a number I can call at Hasbro to figure out what happened? Has anyone else encountered this in their hunts?

Thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing what you guys think.

I think someone bought 10, took the visorless clones out, made 5 packages of purely visored clones, and returned them.

thanks for the heads up! The more I read about what people do, the more amazed I am at some folks...

I can't believe that whoever did that did it in-store or else there is a nice little corner where no employee ever goes to where scammers can do that... Those things are packed like Fort Knox. It was a pain trying to remove one bike and Neyo. Of course, I didn't use a knife, so that would definitely help speed it up.

Yeah, I didn't buy this set, but I have enough trouble getting figures out of their plastic prisons as it is--I can't imagine how people are able to pull off this sort of thing.

Has anyone else NOT seen this set? I've been looking around on endcaps and in all aisles of the toy department but all I've found are the Vader coin albums and the Unleashed figures. This BP still appears to be MIA around here.

I hope they didn't already come in and sell out in your area Diddly.  They seemed to be in and out of the Walmarts in my area in the blink of an eye... never would have thought that some stores had an endcap of them.  If I had been on vacation or something during that week, I'd be scrambling to try and find this set.

If you want, I can keep my eyes peeled for you.

I've seen only one at retail.  That's better than I can say for 95% of all WM's exclusives.   :-\

Thanks for the offer. If you see any extras go ahead and pick one up if you want, but don't kill yourself looking for one. I'm not going to be upset if I miss out on this one. I'd rather spend the cash on the Tantive BP anyway.

EDIT: Nevermind, CHEWIE, I found some of these bad boys today. I'll post some thoughts later after I've opened it.

Can anyone tell me what these are retailing for?  $20?  I'm trying to decide how badly I want one (actually just the Clones, I don't have any need for the bikes).

Yeah Jess, they're $20 ($19.76 I believe, before tax) where I am...  If you needed a set, let me know.

Me. The unleashed figures are gone, there's no sign of TAC at WM. Your lucky you have those Vader coin books there. :P

Same here.  I haven't seen them because of the pervasiveness of scalpers in the area as I noted further back in the thread.

I feel lucky to have gotten any at all. I don't know what it is, but the three near me are horrible with exlusives. In fact, it seems one doesn't get any at all. It got the final five, but I never saw the BP, the Unleahed or the Tin at this one in particular.

I wonder if these were a one time shipment? I heard of few folks stating they got shiments on consecutive days but I wonder if those stores just got 1 big shipment and refreshed their stock? These only came to 2 of our 4 stores..and didn't last long at all. Another typical WM exclusive like the seperation of the twins sets? I think these are done going to the stores already(exception:  WM stores that get things last in the US)!

I guess it depends on what area you live in, despite my two local WMs there are other ones in the area where they just sit on the shelves.

Around me some WM's have a lot, some have none, some have restocked a couple times and some haven't stocked anything at all...  I know the WM near my gf's place has stocked no less than 3 times with the Salecumi pack.  Last I was there they had a handful still there too which is the longest they've sat at that store...  Another WM I visit had an endcap of literally dozens of them but now has none as of my last visit there.  Another one nearer my gf's house had an endcap full of them though and from what I know from friends out there it's been that way for a while.  Another WM I go to hasn't gotten any in that I'm aware of.

Inconsistant?  Yes.

I've seen two of these sets at only one of my local WM's that actually decides to stock its exclusives on one occasion.  I have 5 WM's in my hunting area....er...

they all suck ass...and they smell like said ass

I feel bad for those companies people that can't hit a target.

I have bascially given up trying to locate these.  I am hoping they release Neyo and the trooper on basic cards.  Maybe for next year's series of repacks like the Saga Legends?

That would be interesting. God knows that it wouldn't be hard to find bikes to go with them given all the bikes from this set that people are trying to unload.
