Did Hasbro drop this figure, or is it still on? The insert with the blue guard shows both of them. Have any pics of this figure showed up anywhere? Does anybody know if he will have a cloth robe like the red one, or will he be a rehash of the Saga one? Will this figure be out in April, or will he be out later, like the Saga red battle droid? :confused: :crazed:

I think the only speculation has been caused by the packaging. Personally, I am pretty happy with the AOTC version.....sure, all the soft goods fans hate it, but it's not bad.

That being said, I think it is safe to say if we are getting the blue one, the red cannot be too far off.

Rebelscum just answered my question. Later assortments will carry the red one.
Actually, I really did like the Saga red guard (IMO, the best modern red guard, but 2nd best to the vintage one) but I just want a new sculpt, and seeing how the blue one got the cloth treatment, I think that the red one should too.

Ok, just saw the same pic(s) from Rebelscum....Hasbro went all out on the guards....if the red one simply has another helmet (and in red), I will be elated....incredible detail and one of the better soft good looks - removable cloak too!

Also, it has that goofy armor from the EU under there, which should make some fans happy. I'll just keep it on there, thanks.

In addition to different coloring and helmet, he should have a staff in place of the large blaster.

You can never have enough Royal Guards, I want both colors.

I've always loved the Reds, and liked the POTJ Blue Guard. I have to say, though, I'll be getting LOTS of both of these, if I find them on the pegs... love that holster, and the Biker Scout-type pistol!

Kir Kanos fans, at long last, rejoice!

Now Hasbro can add the head and removeable helmet, and also repaint it black with red trim and call it Carnor Jax, and we are set!

Very cool. I think I'll get a few of those.

Looks very nice. I still like the POTF one but this looks like it may surpass it just because of the soft goods.

Unfortunately, it appears that the red guard still comes with the blue guard's rifle and not the force pike. :Ponder:

My friend on my team found the Red Guard today. They will likely ship intermittently at the same time.

I didn't ask him about the rifle or force-pike.

He comes with something white in his hand as well as a rifle...

Well, I have extra force pikes....this Royal Guard is pretty sweet.

How do we know that the Royal Guards won't show their armor in EP3. I'd say it's likely, given the nature of the confrontation. Yet more EU finds it's way to cannon?!?! We shall see. ;)

Well, all you have to do to see a red Guard is go up to a blue one and tell him his fly's unzipped. I guarantee that he'll turn red. :D

Looks pretty good. I guess it doesn't come with a Force Pike because they don't use them until the OT. I would like to know what the White thing is though.

Hey Tycho, ask your team mate what the white thing is.

Turbo, it's a mini-handgun about identical to the Bikerscouts, that fits in his holster under his armor.

While comparing the armor to the Crimson Empire comics, it is almost identical with very little variation, mostly in things like the colors of the gloves, that sort of thing.

Kir Kanos lives at last!

Cool, thanks. I hope we see them is action this time around.

The white thing is a mini blaster? How odd to make it white....

I don't like that fact that they had to go all EU on us with the armor but at least it's covered up and I guess that you've gotta do something with all of that plain chest space.:rolleyes:

The blaster is black. The white thing is probably a glare or part of the rifle. Rebelscum has some nice detailed images (I posted the link earlier in this thread)

I saw a bunch of red guards at Frank & Sons yesterday, nobody had any blue ones so I'm guessing they're coming later. The figure has the POTJ scout trooper's gun for the small gun. It also has the rifle, I didn't see anything else though.

I found a Red Guard at Wal Mart. Have not seen a Blue verision.
