Cool! Saw the two things I've been waiting for... the ARC fighter and the Mustafar playset.
Fighter looks great! Playset looks OK, but can't tell everyting from the picture.

The ARC fighter does look pretty cool. Looks like it will get a $40 to 50 price mark.

I dunno... The ARC-170 looks to be about the size of an X-Wing, based on the Jedi Starfighters behind it. I'd say $29.99 tops.
I wish we could get around the back of the Mustafar playset to see what is "under the mountain"! MUSTAFAR (http://www.starwars.com/collecting/news/hasbro/20050218_picview/img/5.jpg)

How many more times are we gonna see that stupid "Magic 8-Ball"-esque Yoda repackaged? Hasbro must be sitting on a million of those things.

Anyone got any guesses what connects to the mustafar set? it looks as if u could almost hook 4 of them together.

The image would not work, just got one piocture of the Darth Vader head. Thanks for the pic JP.
Edit: Clicked on Hasbros siute and found the piucs.

The one thing I was surprised by was Darth Tater. For some reason, I only pictured him being the size of the old dress up McNuggets from McDonalds (anyone else remember those? They rocked!), so when I saw it it looked freakin' huge. Definately on my must have list.

I think it's at about $7.99 which makes it ever so easily in my grasp. Mwahahahaha!!!

I'm a little skeptical about the playset....looks like there is much to be desired...

In this pic
Are some of these figures (especially on the middle shelf) ones we haven't seen yet?
I can see a clonetrooper with removeable helmet.

I too liked the playset and the ARC Fighter, though the fighter is smaller than I expected (but more practical if you're fighting droid fighters in it anyway).
But I don't see something that's worth more than the Jedi Starfighter - except this:
There are rumors of Plo Koon's starfighter being a toy this year too.
What does Hasbro get out of that?
The chance to make a lot off the Jedi Starfighter mold by selling it in
blue or green?
But people would buy multiples of the Clone Fighter as well, wouldn't they? I mean I want at least 3.

Rocketboy, the clone with removeable helmet is the AT-TE Gunner.
02-18-2005, 03:04 PM
Tycho I understand it because if you like a character enough you would want that character's paint job but few people would like clone 32421 vs 23423. Now I don't even know if there are multiple paint jobs on the clone fighter but if there are the people that army build to that extent are more likely to do a quick custom job.

This stuff looks great! I can't wait for Steve to post more detailed pics!
Nice to know we're getting the ARC-170 Fighter. It looks pretty sweet.
I'm really looking forward to the color-changing Anakin/Vader saber. Maybe this a step toward getting that build-your-own saber kit shown a while back?
Those battle arenas look fun, but I hope the figures are removable from the bases. I believe they connect to the mustafar playset.
The Mustafar Final Battle playsets looks . . . okay. About like the arena, but a little smaller. I also hope Obi-Wan and Anakin come off their bases. It could be fun though, I'll have to see more of it to make a judgment.
That clone commander figure looks an awful lot like an ARC Trooper! I wonder if they'll be in the film? I also wonder whose red saber that is that Grievous is using? Those C2 bases are great!
C'mon Steve, bring the pics!
