Great news! There are a few characters that spring to mind. I'm gonna assume it's a six figure wave.

-Vader's Secret Apprentice (repack)
-Shaak Ti
-Kazdan Paratus
-Rogue Jedi
-Wookiee Warrior (resculpt)
-that Rodian from Raxus Prime
B-A-D - PROXY

I will like for them to make accurate Royal guards with the right armor plates. The Shadow guard they made was a repaint of the previous figure with not modifications..... That is cheating  ::)

As for the Stormey Commander... I would love to be part of Basic figure... I didnt have a chance to know untill it was too late, woulnd buy a scalped free figure for $40 bucks... My kids need to eat  ::)

I like very much TFU saga... I think its a Nice story & Kashyyyk is my favorite planet.

Would be nice to see:

1) Maris horned Rancor

2) The Rogue Shadow-not Lego

3) Some accurate R.G. Shadow (Black),Red,Blue

4) Some of these customs & more ----> (http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y199/Comerus/Comerus%202nd/Comerus%203/df14_3.jpg)

Good customs there...

I'd say of those, Shaak Ti, the apprentice, and the crazy junk Jedi all would make my wave list.  I would like to see a Rebel Trooper from the game too since they got their fair share of time, and we got 2 troopers for the Empire in the last wave (not counting the 3-packs too).  Honestly though, I could live without those Stormtrooper repaints and such. 

Unless the armor is wildly different from Stormtrooper armor, I'm not really interested...  Rather see the Rebels get a figure in the wave, and then the "mains".  Proxy, another Apprentice figure like pictured above there, Shaak Ti, maybe a blind Rahm Kota, etc.

And definitely NO Vader.  I doubt they listen to that though.

Post by: Nicklab on December 23, 2008, 06:05 PM
Shaak Ti had been mentioned for the  EU wave.  But I seriously have to think that with the announcement of this wave, it seems Shaak Ti is more likely to be slotted with other TFU characters.

I would agree. I don't think they can leave her out this round.

Nice find. I am very interested to see what these will be. Hopefully we will get Proxy and a new & more accurate Juno.

I will take a stab at a possible 2 7 figure set assortment:

Pack#1
Starkiller Hero (With scarf)
Juno Eclipes (Imperial Titty Expose)
Proxy
Kazdan Paratus
Darth Vader (Because Hasbro is good like that.)
Skittle Stormtrooper #1
Skittle Stormtrooper #2

Pack #2
Starkiller Hero (Different Outfit)
Ramh Kota (Alternate Blind Head)
Darth Desoleous
Maris Brood
Emperor (Because Hasbro is good like that.)
Skittle Stormtrooper #3
Skittle Stormtrooper #4

Maybe Hasbro will give Maris Brood SA legs! And it would be a good oppurtunity for them to give the Sith Stalker's figure a removable helmet, like in the TFU downloadable Jedi Temple level. Both would be part of those "just different enough to make you mad" kind of figures...

It would be a good opportunity but they won't. Much like the McQuarrie Concept repack sets, these will be repacks too. The question is which version of Maris will be included - the gray skin or pink skin version?

If Hasbro were to re-release Maris, it would most likely be with the gray skin. That was more realistic to the video game, since Felucia is so wild and dirty, and Maris has been living there for a long time.

I look foward for these, hope it gets in the wish list soon.

Shadow-guard again in bk,blue,red & correct armor plates, smaller mask,capeless, cuz they gived us the same Saga RG's sculpt but in black, used for the N-Wii SG too... pic (http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y199/Comerus/Comerus/trooperWants.jpg)

SOOOO news came out that the new boxed sets would be released with some repaints but MOSTLY new figures. Now that's news! Let the speculation begin! (Startin' with me!)  ;D

So maybe we'll get a new Emperor's guard with that lightsaber thingy, with more articulation and significant quality. Shaak Ti's already out (she'll be in an EU-themed wave  :D) So who else is there besides Galen Marek? Hasbro could certainly do a Darth Phobos  :o or Darth Desolus  :o. That would be ideal to be sold in one set.... so who else from this great video game can Hasbro make??
Title: Re: Force Unleashed Box Set (was Legacy Wave 14)
Post by: Jesse James on August 19, 2009, 02:14 AM
I think Leebo, or whatever he is, would be an option...  I think the junk Jedi would be a good choice as well (forget his name).  A "battle damaged" blind Rahm Kota would also make sense.  There's a significant number of options from the game.  I think Hasbro would stick to the "core" characters and army builders, avoiding anything too secondary otherwise.

I can't recall, has Proxy been confirmed yet? If not single carded, then this would be a VERY opportune place to out that figure in.

Post by: JACKOFTRADZE on August 19, 2009, 05:34 PM
It also sounds like the open jacket booby teasing Juno is coming too. I can see them tossing in one of the Sith Lords Desoleous or the Female one in these packs. I can see a lot of "bosses" making the cut. I really look forward to these sets, I loved every TFU item they made with the exception of the Stormtrooper 3 packs.

I am with you. Leebo will make it out one day with a new Don Johnson looking Dash Rendar from the cover of the N64 game cover.
Title: Re: Force Unleashed Box Set (was Legacy Wave 14)
Post by: Nicklab on August 19, 2009, 05:38 PM
I think that if Hasbro decides to pull the trigger, we'll probably get a new Dash Rendar with Leebo in a SOTE comic 2-pack.

I for one would really like to see some of the other Jedi and Sith in this set.  Kento Marek for one.  Kazdan Paratus.  And Darth Desolus.  Is it likely?  Apparently Hasbro thinks that Jedi go over well with kids, so maybe it'll happen.
Title: Re: Force Unleashed Box Set (was Legacy Wave 14)
Post by: Pete_Fett on August 23, 2009, 10:21 AM
I think Darth Phobos and Darth Desolous are both going to show up in these.

I think the Sith Stalker Apprentice w/o a Helmet on also has a good chance of being made since it's just a new head on the Evolutions body.

I agree with Nick - I think Kento Marek and Kazdan Paratus is a no-brainers for inclusion as well.

I do find it odd that they are planning on still putting out the Shaak Ti figure as an individually carded figure in the EU wave.

 Bought the PS2 version game, to my surprice the game have diferent troopers...

I got in love with the Heavy Trooper (http://i850.photobucket.com/albums/ab62/Thetasquad288/Picture002.jpg), not only you fight them, but you can play as him with the cheat code.  Also got in love 2ndly with the Navy Commando (http://i850.photobucket.com/albums/ab62/Thetasquad288/Picture003.jpg).

BTW: what I really want Hasbro to make is the Rogue Shadow, with the Big Millenia Falcon's scale, that ship is almost the same size in the game.

Noticed in this game version there are others new RG's or Imperial Guards in white with the likeness of the blue PM/Ep 1 mask...will try to get a shot.  Aslo Starkiller with Bounty Hunter disguise is cool, talking of Mandalorian you can play as Chop'aa Notimo (http://i850.photobucket.com/albums/ab62/Thetasquad288/Picture001.jpg).

She looks pretty nice and was one I was figuring we'd receive because of how prominent that look was in the game.  That headsculpt looks new despite the arms/legs not being new.  I hope it remains that way as it looks better than the original.

The likeness looks significantly truer to the game than the carded release from the 30AC line.  Well played, Hasbro.

Yeah, we get some cool pics. Thanks for the mention Chewie.

The Juno looks a lot better than the last. I'm guessing it wouldn't be too hard to have both in a collection as two seperate characters.

Post by: Nicklab on December 23, 2009, 07:40 PM
I think that PROXY is pretty much a lock.  And I also think that Kazdan Paratus is pretty likely, too.  He's an Aleena, and I could see Hasbro retooling Tsui Choi into a Kazdan Paratus figure.

I would also expect some troopers, too.  Especially since Hasbro has stated that packs like these are going to depend significantly on existing tools.

As for Galen Marek?  I think we're going to see figures that are similar to the Evolutions offering, but with a new headsculpt that's more like the actor whose likeness was the final template for the Secret Apprentice.

I don't think Hasbro can make a lot of new troops from this game, especially if they're using existing parts - and besides, they've pretty much hit every troop in the game (except the jet trooper). I do think though that Kazdan Paratus has a good chance.

No matter where I go, I can't see that Juno picture at work. (%@^#*& Websense!)

Is it a man or woman? It appears to be some sort of disturbing androgynous blend, with the face of a man and the cleavage of a woman.

Let me guess - EU character.  ::)

I could totally see Hasbro repainting either the Jump Trooper or the EVO Trooper for these sets OR giving either one some different accessories.  Also, the Emporer's Shadow Guard was easily THE most scarce figure of the 30AC line and I think they would like to get that one back into circulation.  And I think it would definitely be nice to see the Felucian warrior (Rancor pack-in) offered up again, too.

Also, Proxy was officially confirmed by Hasbro in this SW Collector (http://www.swcollector.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=1451) Q&A session.

Post by: Jesse James on December 28, 2009, 02:24 AM
I don't know that I'd call the Shadow Guard more scarce than Revan and Malak, but he was a toughie to track down.  I saw him maybe 10 times total and only bought a handful and regretted passing on the others then as I really liked him.  Malak and Revan I saw twice and once respectively though, and never again.

We hadn't seen that before because it was never mailed to the sites asking the questions.  Hasbro seems to have posted that in answer to a Jawa question, but The Jawa never posted an image in either the forum or the front page from what I can tell.

And Hasbro hasn't been updating their Q&A section with links to the round-up reports since September.  So, however that Q&A was stumbled upon, I don't know.  I tried to find it a few ways and didn't have any luck.

So far Hasbro has made mention of the following characters for the TFU 2-packs; 2 versions of Marek, Juno, Proxy and a Jump Trooper w/ jump pack.

It looks like the Marek figure borrows arms from Evolutions Jango Fett. And I'm impressed with the outcome of the figure - although I would have preferred Marek in another outfit. Hasbro could update that mediocre Sith Stalker figure - w/ a new removable helmet.  ;)

I have to admit I am a bit underwhelmed, interesting sets just too many troopers.
The reuse of the Jango parts make him Galen "Meatpalm" Marek. The flesh colored gloved hands look a bit awkward, not bad just not what I was expecting. I am not crazy about either Galen outfit choice.

Proxy is the best one of the bunch. If they are going to rehash it would have been nice to see Rahm Koto with a blindfold, a slight update to the Sith versions of Galen and Mariss Brood with bendy knees.

I am in for both of course but I hope they have a follow up if they do well.

Post by: jedi_master_sal on January 22, 2010, 10:56 AM
Here are my thoughts on these sets:

Set 1 of 2 will include:
 Imperial JumpTrooper (repaint)-Ok, I'll buy this one. The thing that makes this one worth it is that it FINALLY comes with a jet pack.
 PROXY- It's about freakin' time, Hell yes. PROXY alone almost makes this set worth it.
 Galen Marek (Bounty Hunter outfit)-Meh, don't really remember it from the game.
 Felucian Warrior (repaint)-Ok, not a bad repaint and can be used as a Dark Felucian, so it makes sense
 Shadow Stormtrooper (repaint)-I'm a sucker for clear toys. I like seeing how they are put together. This one is no different and I look forward to adding it to my collection. I'm calling this one the Black Phasing Shadowtrooper since it's phasing either to or from invisibility.

Set 2 of 2 will include:
 Imperial EVO Trooper (repaint)-um did someone throw up on this trooper? What the heck are those color splotches on it supposed to be? Camo? Really? This wasn't in the game. I'd rather have had a CLEAN version of this one. None of the funky yellow at the boots that the original had. Just a clean trooper.
 Juno Eclipse-Okay, nice take on the figure. At least she was in the game.
 Galen Marek (Raxus Prime)-Meh figure. Repaint is nice, but doesn't really add value for me.
 Rahm Kota Milita Elite-Okay cool, so when will we get this on single card so I can easily squad build this one? I'd like 4 more please. Battle Pack?
 Shadow Stormtrooper (repaint)-I'm a sucker for clear toys. I like seeing how they are put together. This one is no different and I look forward to adding it to my collection. I'm calling this one the White Phasing Shadowtrooper since it's phasing either to or from invisibility.

So basically the ones I really like are:
PROXY, Juno, Kota Militia, Black Phasing Shadowtrooper, White Phasing Shadowtrooper

Ones I am okay with the repaints of:
Jump  Trooper, Felucian Warrior

So that's only 7 of 10 figures. Rolls eyes... So I'll yet again have to take it on the chin to get the figures I really want. I wonder how much these sets will cost. Given a single carded figure is already $8, I imagine these sets to be $40. Though as an exclusive, I can see us being burned for another $5-10.  I can only hope these sets are LESS than $40.

The Mando/Galen figure I guess I could call another Mandolorian, but after all of those repaints awhile back I'm just not into these anymore. The other repaint Galen is meh but I'll fit him in somewhere.

I just can't get over...oooh wait here's the name for it the Giraffe coated EVO trooper.

So 7 of 10 figures I either want or am okay with, 2 I can tolerate and 1 that is an abomination. Again price is really going to determine it's value to me. I'll likely get the sets, but the amount of grumbling I do will be consistent with the price of it.

Aren't you used to that by now?  If you have been collecting for a while now (since 2006 for myself) then you should be used seeing that in every multipack/battlepack.  

Personnaly I think Hasbro did a pretty decent job with this set overall.  The only true let down for me is the trooper you mention, "giraffee trooper".  But did I not expect that?  no.

I do agree with Jackoftradze though, I would have liked a blind Kota or a SA Brood.


edit:  oh yeah, I forgot Kazdan like Nicklab mentions below - he would have been an swesome choice!
Title: Re: TRU Force Unleashed Box Sets (was Legacy Wave 14)
Post by: Nicklab on January 22, 2010, 11:23 AM
I would also expect some troopers, too.  Especially since Hasbro has stated that packs like these are going to depend significantly on existing tools.

I don't think Hasbro can make a lot of new troops from this game, especially if they're using existing parts - and besides, they've pretty much hit every troop in the game (except the jet trooper). I do think though that Kazdan Paratus has a good chance.

I could totally see Hasbro repainting either the Jump Trooper or the EVO Trooper for these sets OR giving either one some different accessories.  Also, the Emporer's Shadow Guard was easily THE most scarce figure of the 30AC line and I think they would like to get that one back into circulation.  And I think it would definitely be nice to see the Felucian warrior (Rancor pack-in) offered up again, too.

Also, Proxy was officially confirmed by Hasbro in this SW Collector (http://www.swcollector.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=1451) Q&A session.


Wow.  I didn't think I'd call this lineup as well as I did.  But no Kazdan Paratus or either of the Sith Lords.  DRAT!
Title: Re: TRU Force Unleashed Box Sets (was Legacy Wave 14)
Post by: jedi_master_sal on January 22, 2010, 01:12 PM
Yeah, Kazdan would have really helped these sets.

But which to bump then. Hasbro's mentality would be that since there is a trooper in one set there must be in the other. Since the main hero is in one it must be in the other. Each set has a minor army builder too Felucia/Kota. Each also has a minor character PROXY/Juno.

Personally I'd have favored PROXY on his on card in the TFU wave and Kazdan in this set. PROXY, IMO would sell MUCH better than Kazdan on single card.

Well here's hoping we'll see him soon enough.

And yes, while I expected this sort of line-up, it doesn't mean I have to like or accept it. Hasbro could have done better, IMO. I'll get them as stated.

Post by: Jayson on January 22, 2010, 01:25 PM
Maybe they'll save Kazdan Paratus for a follow up set once the TFUII game ramps up.

I agree that the absence of Paratus is a letdown, but to me everything outside of the Evo Poop Trooper and Translucent Shadow Trooper is amazing... count me in for at least two of each set.

Chewie, if you don't want the Phasing Shadowtrooper, I'll buy it from you. (The more clear one, not the blackish one.)

If Hasbro makes another set, they could easily give us Paratus, reissue Kota just now blind (easy headswap), Stormtrooper Captain, one of the alien henchman (Rodians or the like) and another of the apprentice in a different costume.

Interesting sets...  I'm surprised on one hand at the number of new items, and on the other hand I'm not surprised at all, at some of the repaints. 

I'd say I'm a tad disappointed in seeing the Evo and Jump Trooper again, and the coolness of the stealth suited Stormtroopers is ok...  I just would've preferred at least the junk Jedi, and perhaps one other Jedi from the game...

I like both the Galen's though, Proxy, the Felucian Warrior...  Those are very cool.  Juno's cool too.  I just could do without the Imperials since I have a lot of the two original troopers and I'm kind of Stormtroopered out as far as Commandoes go. 

I love that we're getting the one Galen from the junk planet though.  Very cool.

Post by: Jabba the Slug on January 22, 2010, 10:23 PM
I'm very displeased with the sets - PROXY, however, as many mentioned, is worth getting. I wonder why Hasbro would simply include repaints on generic troopers instead of updating/producing the core characters. People begged for Kazdan and Starkiller's father, yet opportunities for inclusion of those figures were dashed by simple repaints.  >:(

I'm still hoping that Hasbro once again revists TFU once TFU 2 game comes out - that would be a perfect time to come out with more of the original characters, especially since Hasbro clearly stated there's no EU waves for awhile.

While I will definitely be picking these up, they are very disappointing to me.

Where's Kazdan Paratus?

Where's Darth Phobos or Darth Desolous?

If you're going to give us the Bounty Hunter disguise Starkiller, where is Chop'aa?

And lastly where's Kento Marek?

Title: Re: TRU Force Unleashed Box Sets (was Legacy Wave 14)
Post by: CHEWIE on January 23, 2010, 01:15 PM
Aren't Darth Phobos and Darth Desolous just characters that show up on certain gaming platforms?  I don't recall seeing them on the XBOX360 version of the game.  And I think Chop'aa is also absent across some of the platforms... I would not care to see Hasbro add in characters that appear just on a certain system and not on others (at least not before making other core characters that are across all the platforms).

I think if anyone was expecting 10 all new figures here, given Hasbro's track record, I'm afraid that's just setting up for a letdown.  It's in Hasbro's blood to rehash as many older parts and figures as they can to save on tooling, etc. 

It would have been great if Hasbro had swapped out a couple of the figures here and there in favor of Paratus and a new Shadow Guard, and maybe Leia as well...  Leia seems pretty similar in this game to the Legacy ESB version we got last year, so if they did include something like that, I think we'd actually see a bit of complaining there from the community... though if they did release that version with a new head, I'd have liked it.  Heck, a young child version of Galen with his dad would make for something fun too down the line... just love the variety of characters in TFU storyline.

Oh well - I'm not going to complain.  These sets are a step in the right direction and given the big lull in product on the horizon, if these are available in soon these should hold me over for a while.

Actually I much rather would've seen the original Shadow Guard over any of the army builders in the set.  I have a couple, but I'd gladly have taken 2 or 4 more of them.  Love that figure.

Post by: Jesse James on January 23, 2010, 06:44 PM
Couple more Juno pictures out on the front page...  I know people were curious about the head's paint detailing and whether or not it's a big improvement over the original figure.  I think it is, but judge for yourself I guess.

She's definately got a wash in her hair to highlight the sculpt a bit more, and it's noticeably separate in color from her skintone.  Contrary to the last figure.  I may actually need a 2nd Juno just to swap heads with the old figure.  :-\

One thing I am glad about is, at least they're army builders that are the repacks...  It could've been Marris Brood with no improvements or something.  Still, buying 2 sets of these is going to sting the wallet just to get some extra fodder.

I think it's pretty good, but if they're going to look at that figure again, I think they could look at a blend of Stormtrooper body parts being mixed in as well rather than a straight up repack... if I recall correctly, the figure's card back showed armor that was quite a bit different than a straight up repaint of the ROTS Royal Guard's body... not bad, but I think in 2010 Hasbro's capable of a lot better... ball joint elbows would make a world of difference in my opinion.

Yes, Darth Phobos and Darth Desolous are both characters that only appear on the PS2, PSP and Wii (I think) versions of the game.

So even if you discount them because they're not in the next gen platform versions of the game, at least Kento Marek, Ozzik Sturn and Kazdan Paratus should have both been in these sets. That way we'd have all of the level bosses from the XBox360/PS3 versions of the game.

We're already getting Shaak Ti, we already had the Shadow Guard, Maris Brood, Battle Damaged Vader, the Emperor (from the box sets) and Rahm Kota from the TFU assortment, so those three figures were the only three missing. I hope they will get to them some day.

I guess I was just hoping that there would be more figures NEW in the sets since you know that they're going to be $40 - $50 each.

RANCOR PISS DECO!!!

I ordered 5 Rahm Kota Militia dudes as they looked pretty cool. I even ordered two of the new Juno to make some customs as they looked decent. This Rancor Piss deco Trooper is an easy pass and when I get this whole set is an easy "Get this figure out of my collection by any means possible" type of figure.

Simply horrendous.

Hasbro's outfit choices for Starkiller were alright, but they simply used too many army builders for these sets. Just taking out Starkiller, PROXY, and Juno turns these sets into army builder sets. The sets would have been much more appealing if they selected different choices: Maris Brood, Kazdan Paratus, Kento Marek, Drexyl, Phobos...

The list is very long! Hasbro had SO much source material, but they wasted it. How many times have we seen the Shadow Troopers re-released? WAY too many times. And there's 1 figure per set! And another Evo Trooper? Who asked for this? They threw away so many candid slots. Kota's Militia and updated Jump Trooper are welcome, though.

And with that, another updated image of the Felucian Warrior turned up...  Better picture that shows lots of detail of the upcoming repaints new paintjob.  It looks pretty spiffy and considering how it's tough to army build the Felucian Warrior, this one's a welcome figure to me.

On the issue of army builders...

I agree to an extent.  I would've only been interested in getting Brood had she been updated to include knee articulation.  I don't really want another one of her though, as I have 2 deco variants of her already and she was a little disappointing in the articulation dept., so unless that was upgraded I'd vote no on her... 

I couldn't agree more on the Shadow Troopers, and I think the Evo and Jump Troopers are meh choices (though I do like seeing the Jump Trooper get his jetpack...  that's long overdue).

On the issue of all the other choices, I would've liked to see them as well, however Hasbro's looking at cost with these sets, you can tell, so all the new guys are a bit unrealistic I'm afraid.  Looking at it from a cost POV, I would've dug seeing the Shadow Guard offered again as he common enough IMO.  I would've liked getting a sort of "battle worn" Rahm Kota with a bandage for his eyes too.  A little reworking or deco changes and the bandage accessory added would've been neat to me.

I'm not wild about the 4 Imperial Troops though, no...  I think they could've mixed it up a little bit more than that.  Paratus may have been doable using the Target 2-pack Tsui Choi figure with some accessory-additions to the figure.  Brood with new legs would've sold me on that one too though.  Hasbro was definitely looking to lessen the cost of these sets with all those deco-variants though, without a doubt.

I just received IG-97, Plo, Dep and T'Raa Sa from him. I am awaiting Kota dudes and Juno from him. I like to make these order more beefy. I hope some of the apprentice shows up along with more of the EU wave. This seller is going to be the collecting drugs I need to keep me occupied until some new shows up during the drought.

I am down for 2-3 of these and a 4-Lom but I will hold out hoping more show up. I may even pick up some more Kota trooper they look pretty cool! I really hope the apprentice head fits the older sculpts, it would be nice to have them all match.

You had to figure that some of these would leak out in advance of May 1st.  I've been checking over half a dozen TRU stores and so far no luck.  But then I'm pretty close to TRU's corporate headquarters, and the local stores are probably pretty concious of having someone from corporate just "stop by" only to see that they're not honoring the merchandising street dates.

I don't think corporate executives actually care enough to check out local stores even if they actually knew their was a case of toys that had a shelf date. That's someone a lot lower on the food chain's job if there was a position at all. I think store managers are pretty much left on their own as long as the store makes a profit. No one cares outside the store's stockboys.

Huh, I saw these yesterday at (I believe) the Puyallup, WA store.  I hit a couple TRUs looking for the new Iron Man Minimates and stopped to look at these sets not realizing they hadn't been out for a while.  Not much of anything shows up here anymore, so whenever I see something new to me, I figure it's old news to everybody else.  I didn't buy them, but what I noticed was that the translucent Stormtroopers in both sets looked to be the same, where I thought I'd seen pictures a while ago where one was lighter and one looked kind of smokey.

Put me in the camp happy to hear these are only $30...  I really expected higher than that.  $30, not so bad considering what you get.  I was wanting 2 of each set too, so that eases some financial pains I was expecting there too. 

Can't wait to get those and the EU figures out of the way.  Then a nice casual Summer not spending money on gas hunting for stuff.  I can relax, maybe put a little extra into the house or something.  I need a new computer too, so maybe 2010's the year for that to happen actually.

$30 is good. I just hope we can find them now.

I saw these at the Blossom Hill TRU in San Jose, CA today. $29.99 each.

$30 is a steal. I was expecting $45 or so. I'll still get one of each, but it definitely takes the sting out of the purchase. Now I only have to track these sets down.

I would. TRU holds onto their exclusives forever and the only exclusive ever to hit Ross and the weirdo places has been this years WM exclusives. This was a first to my recollection.

plus the prices on these aren't bad at all.  $30 for 5 unique, exclusive figures - yes please!  Sure I could do without some of them - but at the same time they won't really hurt my collection/toys for my son either.

although, when you think about it, we used to get 5 figures in a battle pack for $20...  Hasbro has done a decent job in trainig me to accept it I guess.

I'm totally okay with the $30 price tag on these. I was totally expecting them to be $50 each like the McQuarrie sets were - and those were completely filled with re-releases.

I was right in the middle expecting $40. I figured at 5 figures for $8 each=$40. I'm glad to know these will be $10 cheaper. They should be at least that, given most are just simple repaints.

There are only 4 repaints in the pack, all 4 Troopers.  There are 4 brand new figures (2 apprentice figs, Proxy and the Commando) and either a brand new Juno or at least heavily retooled.  The Felucian is a repaint so at least it's 50/50 new/repaint.  But since the Felucian was only available in another expensive store exclusive set, an argument could be made that he's new enough to tip things 60/40 to the positive. 

No matter how you want to slice it, $6 per figure in each set is a way better deal than the McQuarrie packs, for example, at $45 or most of the standard Battle Packs at $24-ish for 4 figures or a couple figs and an accessory.

Not to mention those McQuarrie packs screw you on the gear...  Why, I'll never know, but that was every reason not to buy those IMO.  Extra heads not included, holsters that don't have their blasters...  That was lame to the extreme.

The worst part of the McQuarrie packs is that Hasbro basically said they never realized the accessories weren't included and then shrugged it off since it was too late to do anything about it.

That's because to take the mistake any further would be an acknowledgement of the fact that they are not as "on top" of the factory in China as they'd like to think.

I will say this for the McQuarrie packs, my cousin bought one of them for his son for Christmas (he just turned 3 this Feb) and Jake loved the figures even without the accessories.  So the packs weren't a total waste, but compared to the single carded figures the value wasn't there as a collectible.

Nope. They are both whiteish with blue highlights. The one with the removable helmet one was dropped from set 2.

When the hell did that happen? Even the pics of the sets at Toy Fair showed the Black/Gray one with removeable helmet in the second set.

Here's the pic from JD's Toy Fair coverage:

And does anyone know whether or not the Mandalorian Starkiller uses the Evolutions Jango Fett's arms? They look very similar, and I wouldn't be surprised if they were indeed the same.

For those that have the set, how different is this JumpTrooper from the 30AC version?

I know the EVOtrooper has the ugly yellow camo to make him different, but what about the JumpTrooper - is the only difference a lack of dirt on his boots?

Yeah that's a great price - I scored some too with the sale.  Tempted to hit another area TRU and see if I can grab a couple more.  The figures are great outside of the Evo trooper I think (kinda so-so on the translucent Stormie, but a local friend wants all that I get), and the others that I have extras of are going to be great for custom fodder (like Juno and both versions of Galen).

I started opening these up and since I have two sets to open, I was really hoping that Hasbro had done us a huge favor and made it so the two new Galen Marek figures could be used to supply new heads to the two figures from the Vader's Apprentice Evolutions set.

Unfortunately, neither new head fits on the ball for the "Light Side" version of the Apprentice. So that's out.

The head from the Junk Planet gear version of Marek will work on the body from the initial outfit figure, but it sits alittle "low" on the neck and that figure's head works fine on the new figure's body, but rides too "high" so unless you pitch the head forward the shoulder wrap doesn't cover the nose and mouth.

For people like me who are buying more than one set to have multiples of the army builders, it would definitely have been a nice bonus if I could have used the new Galen heads to update the Evolutions set figures.

Oh well...

The sets are great though, I am very tempted to score another two sets just so I can four of each of the army builders (eight in the case of the cloaked Stormtrooper).

I'm pretty happy with these boxed sets. I was fortunate enough to get two of each.

I know I won't need the extra Garen Maleks though, or the extra Giraffe EVO trooper. So those are up for sale. I'll sell them all three for $14 or $5 each for the Maleks and $4 for the giraffe EVO trooper.

Sal, I will buy the Maleks, I sent you a PM.

I was also lucky to get double sets at the sale price today.  These are a good value even at full price. (i like half better)

Outside of the Jump Trooper the rest of the imp troops I have no need for and will have them for trade/sale if anyone is army building. I have x4 Shadow Stormies up for sale and x2 Evo Troopers if anyone is troop building. All are $5 each.

I picked up two more sets so I could have four each of Kota's Militia, Felucian, Jumptrooper w/Backpack and Repaint EvoTrooper and now I'll have eight of the cloaked Shadow Troopers.

Since I now have four each of both Mareks, updated Juno and Proxy, I'm probably gonna bring in four of them to display on my desk at work.

I'm kinda glad TRU has the BOGO sale this week, otherwise I wouldn't have gone this far overboard with this exclusive.

Out of the five stores I've hit in the last three days, only one has not had them.

All four of the others has had them and in varying degrees of glut - in other words, they weren't hard to acquire. I picked up five sets (so 10 pieces) between two store visits w/o any problem - I was actually shocked because I thought that with the BOGO going on right now, two box sets for $45 + tax which got you 10 figures would be selling like gang-busters, but I guess it all comes down to the characters in the packs. Most parents (and kids) aren't gonna know who these characters are.

Pete, I think it has more to do with the fact that they just came out. (And you snagged them all up, LOL) Granted people can't get that deal now, but 5 figs for $30 is still a decent deal compared to single carded figures.

There was something mentioned, I think maybe in a Q&A session, about the Shadow Trooper changing, but you're right Justin that a different Shadow Trooper (who had a removable helmet and baklava/ski mask thing) was pictured at (I believe) Toy Fair.

That figure may have shown up overseas as well, but was not in the set ultimately.

And yes, this hobby can be exhausting. :)  I'm a big advocate of pre-ordering what you can when you can, if you can...  I don't always follow my own advice on that though either, but usually our sponsor Entertainment Earth, or Big Bad Toy Store, come through on all pre-orders you put in...

The news sounds positive that more are coming though, so I wouldn't worry about that...  And I'll keep my eyes peeled in the area too for these when I'm out and about.  I was really hoping to knock these out and call it a day till August.  Looks like I'll have some running to do till then though, but hopefully not for long.

On my hunt for EU today I saw a repacked TFU set. It was the Mano/Proxy set. The clear Stormie was swapped with a commtech stormie. The other four figures were untouched. First off the clear Stormtroopers is absolutely atrocious. I personally sold off all 4 of mine. Secondly why go to all that trouble especially when you got the set on sale. Thirdly he could have sold the other 4 figures and made money on the set and basically got the clear Stormy free.

Repacks really urk me. Repacking for a really dumb repaint that looks absolutely ridiculous only throws salt on the wound. This punk probably hogged all of the EU wave to boot.

I LOVE Galen's new lightsaber sculpt! Hasbro really must have made the original Galen on the spot, because even his lightsaber sculpt was waaay off! I hope that they redo him in his basic training gear.

Oh, and both Galen's of the set could do with better headsculpts - Jedi Starkiller had a dead-on likeness!

These have hit Canada recently so I picked up the PROXY set. Very nice batch of figures, even the phasing shadow stormtrooper. I wasn't expecting to like the guy, but he's grown on me quite a bit. I wonder if we'll get any more for Force Unleashed, not that I can think of too much else that I'd consider important. Blind Kota and maybe Kazdan Paratus would be cool.

I don't remember seeing this posted anywhere - if it has I apologize.

Tunghori has the black phasing troopers that were supposed to be in this pack up for sale in 5 man groups such as in this auction here:  http://cgi.ebay.com/STAR-WARS-Lot-5-Force-Unleased-SHADOW-STORMTROOPER-/370413093014?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item563e574096

thought I would post incase anyone was interested.

Aren't those just the Shadow Trooper that were released with the Emperor in the 2008 WM/2009 TRU Exclusive TFU 3 packs?

That's what they look like to me, but I'm at work now so I can't really compare.

For him to have those figures would mean that Hasbro produced them all and then at the last minute swapped them out with the clear one.

While that is possible, I got the impression from Hasbro's Q&A answers on the subject that LFL rejected the Shadowtrooper with the removable helmet - so I would have just assumed that it never was mass produced.

My little brother picked up a clearanced TFU 3-pack set (the original Palps and Shadow Troopers), and I was very surprised to see that the Shadow Troopers had a somewhat wider stance than the usual stormtrooper figures we see that look like they really gotta go. Were the troopers in the most recent TFU sets similar?

I agree as well - it's the little red highlights at the knee/ankles that give them away as the TFU 3-pack Shadow Troopers.
