Saw this over at Rebel Scum and I can't wait to get my copy. I'm really, really annoyed. Just as I decided to stick with higher end stuff like Gentle Giant & Kotobukiya, Hasbro has to make super nice figures!

Wow, thanks for the heads up. I must say that the clone troopers sure have a varied color scheme in this one - clone trooper #41 looks to be a SA version - the one on the far left is the first and looks a tad 'blocky' whereas this one looks like a movie photo....nice! Seeing some familiar aliens was a nice suprise.

Yeah, the clones look sweet. I wonder who the little dude is. Could be a spoiler if it's Han Solo

I don't know who the young kid / padawan is but I love the fact that we are getting a young Tarkin Figure. Plus with this poster you can finally see a pic of the Utopian Warrior figure. I hope this is included in the new Insider magazine. I not sure if I am digging the "crispy Anakin" at this time but the Obi Wan with flight gear and robe looked sweet. Hopefully it fits intop the starfighter this time.

My. Thoughts. Exactly!

I've just started getting into the mini-busts, and I'm totally hooked on the Bust-Ups and scaled lightsabers. The only way I can afford them is to scale back on the Hasbro line.

Looks like that's not gonna happen now... :frus:

That little dude is Tado, he is a padawan. I have a copy of the ROTS Product Catalog from Hasbro, that I got when I bought Anakin's Color Change Lightsaber. Tado is # 52 on the checklist on the back of the catalog.

This new ad by Hasbro really looks good, and its better than just a basic checklist, you can at least see all the new figures, many not seen before!
I can't wait for my Insider to arrive!

This is sweet! I'm loving the look of all these guys!

Don't read on if you want to avoid SPOILERS . . .

I love that new clone trooper! I'll get one of the first one and multiples of this guy. Like everyone else, if we can find them. :rolleyes:
The Neimoidian Warrior looks good, I like the firing cannon.
The Wookiee Warrior looks like the one featured in the teaser, I love it!
The Destroyer Droid looks to be the same one from AOTC. Hopefully not.
Tarkin looks great! But he doesn't change his clothes for twenty years, I guess. :D Maybe he's on the Star Destroyer?
Ask Aak and Meena Tills are sweet, always nice to get new aliens and senators.
R2-D2 looks to be (another) light-up, sound-making figure. Those are fun, but enough is enough!
I guess that big clone is commander Baccarra, he looks cool.
What's the deal with Anakin? He doesn't look very crispy. A little charred but not like the 12" Ultimate Villain. His robot arm really is too short in the film!
I like Captain Antilles a lot more in this picture. He looks better.
Zett Jukassa is a cool figure! His arm is in a weird position though.
Yay! We finally have the Utapauan Warrior. Now -Durge- will stop talking about it! :D He looks pretty cool.
The Turbo Tank Driver looks like the other clone pilots (BARC trooper, AT-RT Driver) but is still good.
That Mustafar Sentry looks an awful lot like Shu Mai. I wonder if that's where she's from, or if he's just a guard for the separatist meetings?
Pilot Obi-Wan looks awesome, always good to get a cloaked figure. And it looks like his headset can come off.

It's the rubber and metal of his bionic arm fused together from the lava. Here's a shot of the ungloved arm from the 12" Ultimate Vader and the pic of Mustafar Anakin.

These figures look sweet. I love how they're making a young Tarkin. Hopefully they can have the actor pull off the classic Tarkin voice.

I know there are other threads but does anyone have a DEFINITE answer on how many figs are gonna be released on April 2nd?

El Chuxter
03-11-2005, 05:51 PM
Man, I don't know who half these guys are, but they rock!

Here's a few thoughts from the dude in the dark.

#4: Looks like the AOTC SBD. :(

#10: I don't care for this Mace's joints.

#12: Looks like the crappy Saga Emperor again.

#21: Have we seen this Shaak Ti before, say Midnight Madness 2002?

#22: Is that a bit of a Mighty Grin(tm) I see? :D

#29: Now that is a Ki-Adi!

#32: And I thought the Saga Aayla was wicked!

#33: Looks like an ARC in updated armor.

#34: Early AT-AT Drivers?

#38: More ARCs!!!

#45: Looks like a young Mr Cushing. Could it be? My guess is yep yep.

#49: Looks like Super-ARC!!

#51: Rick McCallum? :eek:

#54: ARC of the Jungle?

General_Grievous
03-11-2005, 06:29 PM
Many of these figures look awesome. I knew the Utapau Warrior would look like Tion Medon.

Tarkin, Ask Aak, the Mon Calamari, the Wookiee Warrior, Commander Baccarra, the Neimoidian Warrior, and Pilot Obi Wan all look great!

Aw, hell, they all look great to me!

But is this a pull-out poster from the Insider?

Hellboy
03-11-2005, 06:30 PM
Yeah these do look great for the most part. I am however wondering if the Battle Droid pictured will be a new sturdier mold. Based on the pictures the Destroyer seems to be the same gimmicky Saga release which sucks so I wouldn't put it past Hasbro to do the same thing with the BD. Hope I'm wrong.

03-12-2005, 03:20 AM
I'd still hope that they'd show an Anakin Fighter Pilot since the figures they are releasing (which I have loose now) do not fit in his vehicle!

Fluke Skywalker
03-12-2005, 03:41 AM
Glad to see the whole line so that I can start making plans for what I want. I was starting to wonder why Hasbro was keeping the last half dozen or so a secret. Looks like it wasn't finalized yet.

I was really surprised at how great the Utapauan Warrior looks. I had planned on passing that one up. The Obi-Wan Red leader looks good, but I'm worried about that cloak. Surely we'll get a figure that actually fits in their ship won't we?

Over all, I am most psyched about the various Clones. Hasbro has finally learned a valuable lesson. We love Clones!

Mr. JabbaJohnL

#4: Looks like the AOTC SBD.
I know it has a similar arm gun, but I don't think it has the exploding body like the other one did. But I could be wrong.


#12: Looks like the crappy Saga Emperor again.
No, it's completely new. It shoots lightning from his right hand and holds his saber with his left. His hood is removable too, so it looks much better.


#21: Have we seen this Shaak Ti before, say Midnight Madness 2002?
No, no we haven't. She's completely new, with soft goods skirt and all.


#22: Is that a bit of a Mighty Grin(tm) I see?
Sorry to say, but . . . no. In person, he just has big red ugly lips, no grin whatsoever.

General_Grievous
03-12-2005, 12:32 PM
Pilot Obi-Wan's cloak looks to be removable. Kind of like a better, more realistic version of the "chocolate shell" cloak that was included with Episode 1 Mace and Power of the Jedi Obi-Wan.

Battle Droid
03-12-2005, 12:42 PM
The SBD looks to be the Deluxe AOTC Yoda one. (but with a removeable arm.)

Bosskman
03-12-2005, 01:12 PM
Yeah, I have the new SBD and it is the same as the one that came with the Saga Deluxe Yoda, only it has the same gimick as the Saga SBD.

The Emperor's hood does come off. I got him a few weeks ago at Walmart. All of the figures in coll 1 have gimicks but they are very hideable as opposed to the ones from AOTC. The only ones I don't have are Anakin and Vader (but I'm sure I'll get them on 2 apr, if they don't leak out before then)

Man I could've sworn that he had a pony tail or something under there.;)




Please someone get that last joke.

the new Emperor does have hair sculpted on the back of his head, it just isn't really painted. Its sort of the same shade as the rest of him.

So are only the first 40 coming out on the 2nd? or all on the poster?

RussUAE
03-14-2005, 07:25 AM
Wow, thanks for that guys. Can't believe I totally missed the hood thing. Looks like he's having a very bad day in those shots!

He's my favourite character by far - may need to buy a couple of these Palpatines.

I got mine in the mail yesterday, and I think there's some Photoshop magic involved.

Remember how the early pics of the 12" VOTC Luke looked like the best 12" figure ever? That pig terd is still on clearance.

The cape on the Grievous at the bottom has some really unreal things going on in the shading.

Several characters on the top tier appear to be in improper perspective.

And the checklist specifies they're all 3.75", but it really looks like some (Ki-Adi, Sassy, and especially Vader) are really 12" figures that were shrunk down.

Anyone else noticed this? Or has anyone who's found them able to disprove my suspicions?

That is an awesome picture and most of the figures look awesome. I can't wait to get them in my hands.
