Well - now that I've seen these, I'm sorry to say that MANY of these are re-hashes/re-paints.

Many?† Let's try ALL of them...

15 "new" RotS figures have popped up over the last few days -

Light Wookiee w/Leather shirt (Sneak Preview Wookiee repaint)
Red Shocktrooper (#6 Clone Trooper repaint)
General Greivousí Body Guard (#8 White repaint)
Plo Koon (#16 Holographic "repeat")
Aayla Secure (#32 Holographic "repeat")
Green Clone Commander (#33 Clone Commander repaint)
Commander Bly (#33 Clone Commander repaint)
Black Clone Pilot (#34 Clone Pilot Repaint)
Blue 501st Clone Trooper (#41 Clone Trooper repaint)
Commander Gree (#41 Clone Trooper repaint)
Silver Neimoidian Warrior (#42 Neimoidian repaint)
Dark Brown Wookiee Warrior (#43 Wookiee version #3)
RotS Passel Argente (Saga Cinema Scene repaint)
RotS Shu Mai (Saga Cinema Scene repaint)
RotS R4-P19 (RotS Sneak Preview Droid repaint)

ALL repaints?† Not a SINGLE new figure mixed in there?!?† †>:(

(I;m sorry a new "vest" does not make a figure "new" in my eyes)

Then, on top of that, we get 3 "new" Battle 5-packs (Temple Raid, Throne Room, Hoth Battle) which are all composed of MORE repacks/repaints?†

Hasbro better be saving the GOOD stuff for later in the week...† :-\

I know. I don't get why everyone is pissing and moing about these Variants.



1) - there are too many too soon
2) - no one thinks they will be able to find them.

If Hasbro announced they were shipping a case with 3x each of the 4 Clone Variants (Black Pilot #34, Red Shock #6, Green #33, Blue #41), everyone would be cheering -  BUT putting Clone Variants in cases where there are only ONE per case is what the biggest gripes are about...

I think people would be MORE receptive to Evolution Clone pack #2 if they weren't scared that the shelves will be swimming in the Anakin Evo set and Clone Evo pack #1 sets.

While I can't quit... >:(

We asked for this. We clammored for armybuilders. We hooted and hollared. Can we at least see what they look like? :-\


When I was clammoring for Army Builders, I meant Stormtroopers, not Holo Palpatines...† I guess I should have been clearer.  :P

My Star Tours Wave 4 arrived today! (special thanks to my source! ;))

I thought I'd take some nice carded and loose photos for those still on the fence on these:

Star Tours Wave 4 - Carded and Loose

While the droids are EU fodder, they are some really nice figures.† I though they would be lame, but there is a LOT of detail packed into these little guys.† There are a lot of paint apps (colored wires, knows, dials, etc) and a lot of detail in the wiring and such (OK, maybe not so much on MSE-1T, but the other two are really great!

I guess I'm glad I ponied up the dough for them after all!† :)

RS is reporting it's Commander Bly not Commander Cody. Aren't we already getting a Commander Bly in the Evolutions pack?

Don't get those guys started again!† (Re: The raging "Who is Bly?" thread† :P)

I think it was decided that the Clone in the Evolution set is one of Bly's Grunts, but not Bly himself.† Bly would look like #33 Clone Commander, but with Yello Deco instead of Red.

Final 12 Revenge of the Sith Action Figures:

- Commander Cody
- Holographic Plo Koon
- 501st Legion Super Articulated Clone Trooper
- Commander Gree
- Holographic Aayla Secura
- R4-P17 (Obi-Wan Kenobi's Astromech Droid)
- Wookiee Warrior - NEW SCULPT (Two variants)
- Passel Argente (Yellow Cloak)
- Shu Mai (Utapau Costume)
- Neimoidian Warrior (Variant Silver & Brown Deco)
- Grievous' Guard (Variant White)

Not too bad considering the list of giant repacks/exclusives we've seen so far today...

I'll gladly buy the #41 Clone (501st) and pass onthe 5-pack!

I will continue buying 1 of each carded 3.75" figure until I die... OTC Internet Wedge included.† :-[

I will continue to buy 1 of each "new" 3.75" figure to open and display.

I will continue to buy 1 of each "new" 3.75" scale vehicle, playset, accessory, etc to open/enjoy as I see fit.

I can't quit... I just can't do it.

"It is too late for me, son".† :P

MOVE MY THREAD WILL YOU.† *shakes fist* =p

If you would put stuff in the right place, we wouldn't have to keep moving it...  :P

I think it is important to note that the info says:

"Rebel hero Wedge Antilles is available as a carded figure exclusively through online retailers. "

"you will not find this bundle offered anywhere else! Remember, this figure cannot be purchased through traditional mass merchant retailers -- it is an internet exclusive."

The only place they really claim they have an exclusive is with the "bundle" of Wedge, Case, and Topps card they are offering. †There is still the chance that another place may carry Carded Wedge without the junk for a cheaper price... †maybe we just haven't heard from them yet. † ;)

edit: D'oh!  Brian beat me to it...

I'll take September 2006 in the SW Death Pool. †I don't expect ther to be ANY new Star Wars figures in the back-to-school Toy aisle resets that indicate we are heading into the start of the Christmas 2006 shopping season.

I wonder though what the next big thing will be? †Cards to Comics to Action Figures to ? †


I said it before, I'll say it again - I'll take September 2006 in the SW Death Pool.† ;)
