30th Anniversary Collection / Re: TFU Stormtrooper Commander
« on: September 16, 2008, 06:17 PM »
If anyone lives in an area with plentiful Commander figures and has an extra one for sale at a reasonable price, please PM me - it can be loose, I don't really care. None of my local Gamestops are "in" on this promotion. I wonder if it's a regional campaign... eg they figure the game will sell well in New York City regardless, so they don't need the additional promotion of the figure to drive sales?

Ugh, my local Gamestop - even the manager - had no idea about this figure and didn't have any in stock on the day of the game's release. What a bungled, poorly-handled promotion this has been. They owe it to fans to release this at SWS; its going for stupid money on ebay.

Disappointing that this Imperial Officer isn't being brought up to the quality level of Juno Eclipse... I was hoping she would be a new standard for Imperial officers. Her uniform has great texture and detail compared to the Jerjerrod sculpt, and doesn't have the awkward looking thigh bumps.

Are there two Imperial Lt's in the other pack, or one? There are two pictured, but only Lt. Renz listed.

Regardless - well done Hasbro!

Vader does visit the planet in the comics; he duels one of the trainees... one who isn't in the pack. I think this set is meant to replicate the scene of the "final duels" between the trainees, with the Emperor & Vader watching, to see which become royal guards.

Will they come with helmets?


That's disappointing, I was looking forward to these. Seemed like a cool set.

lol @ the republic insignia...

What is that large cloaked stormtrooper next to Gen. Greivous?

I'll definately be picking up the first two, although that Cade Skywalker sculpt makes him look like a homeless surfer dude, but w/e. Easy pass on the "retro" ones.

When are these being released?

Ordinarily I would happily buy all Imperials, but these are just sort of... dorky looking. I'll wait to see how it looks in a store before I make a decision - if they had done something cooler like "types of the Royal Guard" with some guards in fighting gear and a few with the staffs to guard the Emperor, it would have been totally rocking and I'd be super enthusiastic, but this set doesn't really fit anywhere.

1) Sim Aloo
2) Joruus C'baoth

...those are the only two I'd buy!  :)

1) Coruscant Guard/Elite Stormtrooper - Resculpt of the SotE PotF one, but up to current standards and not a "Luke in disguise" version... I think people would totally buy these. They look badass.

2) Sate Pestage (or in a Comic Pack with Ysanne Isard) - Ruling Council ppl are always welcome

3) Sith Trooper, KOTOR (with heavy blaster and double-ended vibro-blade) - Lots of demand for these guys, very strong aesthetics and they would go well with the other KOTOR figures.

4) Mission, KOTOR (with vibro-blade) - Rogue character from KOTOR who I ended up killing, sadly. But if you let personal attachments get in the way of seizing control of a galaxy-dominating superweapon, you probably shouldn't be trying to dominate a galaxy in the first place.

5) Imperial Intelligence Officer (in red) and/or ISB Officer (in white)... both could be very cool figures

Hmmm.. that AT-AT figure is a great sculpt, with good articulation... yeah I'd take a few in a different paint scheme. The AT-ST driver from the recent Battle Pack isn't quite as inspiring, and if they choose that figure I hope they at least swap in some reasonably good arms.

Anyone know what the "Imperial Engineer" looks like? If he's cool I'll definately grab a few.
