1. Commander Bly trooper from Felucia
2. Neimoidian Warrior with silver armor and force pike
3. White Greivous;'s Bodygaurd
4. Wookiee Warrior with soft goods tunic and grappling hook, detonators and club
5. commander Gree
6. Passel Argente in yellow robes
7. Shu Mai
8. Holographic Aayla Secura
9. R4-P17 -Obi-Wan's Red Astromech Droid
10. Wookiee Warrior (dark brown) with soft goods with Cannon from Yoda #03
11. Special Ops Trooper (501st Legion) - Super Articulated!
12. Holographic Plo Koon

I'm jazzed up for Commander Bly, Gree, 501st Super Art...

But where's Cody?

I wonder if the Wookie Warriors will be new sculpts. Probably not.

Oh, wait! Mmmm... Pornographic Aayla.
Gimer sticks! I guess it says Holographic...

07-13-2005, 07:00 PM
wow, that's a mixed bag right there...

i'm excited for and will defintely buy the 501st, Gree, Bly. I"ll very likely buy holo plo koon and aayla, R4.

now for the bad...where's Cody???? variant neimo warrrior, wookiees and grievous guard shouldn't even count as being part of this 12!!

all in all, it's still better than the other announcements we've gotten from hasbro lately. (no more unleashed, potf wedge, all those rehashes)

now on second thought, i'm kind of peeved that they may all be repaints and not a single new sculpt in the bunch. so much for the SA Mace and Obi Wan many of us had hoped for. how is there going to be room for the variant neimo warriors when the movie accurate ones are still crowding the pegs???

OK, so the inevitable question is: who's going to buy the JEDI TEMPLE SET with the #6 501st clones?

LTBasker
07-13-2005, 07:41 PM
Ugh, more niemoidians and bodyguards. That's nearly all that peg warms here. I swear the niemoidians actually spawn more of themselves, no way that many cases showed up with them!

Wookiees I don't mind, they actually do sell around here. R4 sounds cool, maybe it'll be a rehash of the red droid from Queen Amidala's ship?

The 501st Clone sounds awesome, but I hope they have like half a case dedicated to them. They're most likely going to be in HIGH demand.

Im mixed about these. While the Clones sound great, the jedi holos sound good, and the rest are mixed and blah. Why more Neo warriors? Why more Wookies? I understand people love to build armies, but like stated before, wheres the SA Mace, Obi? Wheres Final Duel Emperor and a better SA version of Anakin Mustafar?

Hmm...the 501 has dirty boots/legs...but at least this version of the 501 has the stripes down the legs!

The Gree is disappointing...no real braces (suspenders), they're simply painted on!

Finally, the Bly appears to be a simple repaint.

What's funny is that all 12 are re-used molds. Hasbro does it on the cheap!

07-13-2005, 10:39 PM
If the the 501st is gonna be a #41 and single carded, I think we can all skip the Multi-pack. What an odd choice by Hasbro.

I'm pretty Jazzed at the repainted Clones and Clone Commanders coming out. But more Wookies? And another Nemoidian? Why on earth?

Pretty cool I think. The Bly sucks big time. The custom Kenobi did for me is way the hell better than that. I knew it wouldn't have camo on him, hell he's missing his gun holster. Then again most of these figures look hand painted and are probably in prototype stage. Can't wait to get my butt down there. I'm almost regretting looking at the pics. I would have loved to see them in person 1st.

turbo, i think you mean Gree and not Bly?

i know i might be in the minority but i might actually pick up some of the grievous bodyguards. the weathering looks pretty good on them.

the holo jedi aren't actually that great but since i usually buy any jedi, i'll probably end up getting them as well.

Ugh...I thought reHashbro said the 12 figures would be all new?! :mad:

I am happy about the 501st Clone...saving me some $$$ and from getting another pilot and Anakin
Bly, although a repaint, looks good
Gree looks crappy...a real dissapointment-seeing how I was really looking forward to this figure :mad:
I like R4-P17--the more the merrier with astro droids
I'm with Figrin Bran-I can use another Magna Droid (although I was hoping for articulated knees)
And the pegwarmer to hang out with his brother the pegwarmer: Neimodian Warrior - Now with different colors--AND NEW STICK!!! :D
And the Wookiee gang: the fashionable Sneak Preview, and the Battle Bash King Kong :rolleyes:

Im kind of happy yet kind of feeling stiffed. I like some of these "new" figures like the 501st clones but then i see the preview wookie warrior with a poncho and i feel a little upset. Im probably the only one, but i like the other wookie warrior, if only because of his paint scheme, he reminds me of my black lab, but on steriods. I most likely will pick up all or most of these though, i can already see where some of them will fit in future dioramas.

My thoughts for what they are worth

I'm going to agree with turbowars, at least some of these figures look like they are still in prototype phase, so I still hold hopes for a well done Gree.

Glad to see SA 501st now i dont need to buy that battlepack (yay for saving money ^_^)

I don't mind the black furred wookie but the other is most definitly overkill, as is Nemo and Magnadroid.

My thoughts are that HAsbro is highly relying on the fact this is a movie year to drive this line, probably counting on a boost when the DVD is released in november. With that backing they are taking the opportuninty (or going for cheap money depending on your opinion of Hasbro)
and releasing these figures that mosly armybuilders/scene makers are going to want, and hope the kids may or may not pic some up.

If they had tried to do this say next year with the craze diminished rapidly the line would have pegwarmed like no other. but with the movie craze they may feel its the only time to pull something like this off.

I'm not liking the look of those clone 3-packs out of the package. I pre-ordered mine from Amazon hoping for the yellow ones, and now I'm seeing white one's pictured - here's hoping there aren't gonna be tons of variants on these, although it looks like there might be. :frus:

I hope to god that rehasbro comes and pulls the 30,000 Neo Warriors and wookiees down to repaint them. I am just floored that they would make "new" assortments made up of stuff that is hanging by the thousands on the racks already. I am dissapointed that there still is not a Cody, is it that friggin' hard to repaint that instead of the stupid Neo Warriors!!!

07-14-2005, 08:56 AM
I guess I shouldn't be too surprised at how lazy Hasbro got with this final wave of figures. Gee... recast figures from old moulds with new paint schemes or make them Holograms! The hologram figures are fine but the Wookiees are pretty dire. I can't complain about the clones or R4-P17 but I'm not all too thrilled with the reissues of Shu Mai and Passel Argente. All they did was get killed. *shrug*

As usual... no Padmes.

Once again I am underwhelmed. The audacity of Hasbro is striking at times. They boast of 'new' figures and 'at last, as requested by fans - a carded Wedge!!!'.......and they're rehashes.

Jayspawn
07-14-2005, 09:59 AM
I have mixed feelings about this lineup. But I feel better that Commander Bly and Gree and the 501st Clone Trooper will be included! -those have me excited!

I'll probably get Holographic Aayla and Plo Koon. I know I'll get R4 cause I'm a sucker for astromechs, and I'm excited about the Exclusive Holographic Emperor Palpatine (even though we have one from Episode I).

Jayspawn
07-14-2005, 10:01 AM
Hey! Thats right, where are all the Padmes Hasbro??? Theres at least 3 really good ones you could be making!

abell748
07-14-2005, 11:06 AM
I doubt if we will ever get any new Padmes unless they repaint one. Doing anything else would require someone to remove their butt from the chair and make a new sculpt. That or maybe hasbro will remove their coolective heads from their collective butts. I say we'll see repaints of Padme.

Amen to that. I am trying to hold on until we see what is announced later in the week until I pass judgment, but although I want some of the clones that are announced, I could care less about most of what has been announced.

If the only thing we get from the original trilogy for quite some time is core characters resculpted and rereleases of figures I already have (sometimes with different paint jobs!), I will be really disgusted and concerned about the line.

And I am really angry about Red Leader last year, Veers this year, and Wedge this year. These are characters on the sidelines, that many of us want, but would be lucky to see plastic. Either don't put them out right now until the time is right to give them their own proper new molds or do them properly now. Now that Red Leader, Veers, and Wedge have been put out recenlty Hasbro will feel like they shouldn't put them out again any time soon since they just released them. Or, the Red Leaders, Veers, and Wedges being put out won't sell so Hasbro will assume we don't want them and as a result don't want other minor characters (like Tague, Jerjerrod, Derlin).

But as I said, I will wait until the convention is over to see if there is anything great coming!

Wow, I Think You People Need To Chill Out And Relax.we Asked For Clones And They Are Giving Them To Us. Of Course They Are The Same Molds.why Make More Clone Molds When The Ones You Have Are Great.im Not Entirly Sure How Long It Takes To Make A Mold But Look At How Many We Got This Year.50 Plus Molds. Now They Are Taking Care Of The Army Builders. Next Year I Am Sure You Will Get Cody. And A Few Other Clones That Have Different Helmets. As Far As Wookies And Neimoidian Warriors I Think They Look Good. Now I Can Make A Capt. For My Neimoid Army. And The Wookies Just Trade Accesories And It Looks Like A Real Army. So I Am Sorry I Think Hasbro Is Doing Well This Year Repaints Or Not Build Them Armies.

General_Grievous
07-14-2005, 12:11 PM
Wow. The only ones I'm even remotely excited about are Gree (Yes, I like him, even though he's a little off), The 501st Clone, and R4. The holos are okay, but kind of dull. Shu Mai and Passel I may get, but that's not a guarantee. Couldn't they have released a ROTS Nute and Rune instead? The Neimoidian and the Magna Guard will be passes for me. The Wookiees are stupid looking, and why is one wearing a shirt??? As for Bly, I may pass on him, since we seem to be getting a better version of him in the Evolutions pack.

DarthZylek
07-14-2005, 12:14 PM
So let me this straight....We are getting a repaint of 41 with blue coloring coming soon like the repainted 6 as shocktrooper AND another 501 in 57-68?

spang2005
07-14-2005, 12:50 PM
The Evolutions pack does not have a Commander Bly. It's just one of his men. These look all right. I'm really upset about the Nemoidians and Wookies. What a rip off. The clones do look really good, and I like the holos. I'm also a little upset about the exclusives as I just find it difficult and stressful to hunt them down.

Mr. JabbaJohnL
07-14-2005, 01:38 PM
Here's what I think of them:
1. Commander Bly - About what I expected. Glad to see him.
2. Neimoidian Warrior - Gee, what a brilliant idea. :rolleyes: The ones that were actually in the movie are doing so well, I bet these guys will do even better. :crazed:
3. White Grievous's Bodyguard - Pretty cool. Nice to add variety to the troops.
4. Wookiee Warrior (light) - What the hell? This looks horrible.
5. Commander Gree - Very nice. Not perfect, but really good nonetheless. I love the green visor.
6. Passel Argente - Meh, more separatists for Anakin to kill. That base is bizarre, it looks like he's on fire.
7. Cat Miin - I like this character, so it'll be good to stand him/her next to Shu Mai. This is a figure I certainly never expected, even if it is just a repaint.
8. Holographic Aayla Secura - A good choice, executed well.
9. R4-P17 - Not too difficult to fudge up, but I don't know why we're getting her at all since we already have her in his starfighter. I would've liked one whose dome could be ripped off like in the movie.
10. Wookiee Warrior (dark) - Way too dark. He looks like a damn gorilla with those arms and that color.
11. Special Ops Trooper - Yes, what we've all wanted. I'll still get the battlepack in addition to this since these clones are sweet!
12. Holographic Plo Koon - They definitely dropped the ball here. In the movie, he's only a hologram when he's sitting! This one can't sit!!! They would have been better off with a Ki-Adi-Mundi, which I assume we'll get sometime soon based on the looks of these figures.
*Holographic Emperor - I don't think we need another one of these, as they've already made two. It looks like this is a TRU exclusive? Oh well, I can use it in dioramas with Grievous . . . wait no I can't, this figure already has his face scarred! After his face looked like this, he only appeared from chest-up in holograms. Another bum move, Hasbro.
*Lava reflection Obi-Wan vs. Vader - Kind of cool. At first glance I couldn't tell that they were lava-y, but I like this piece.

The droid & the Clones are all I'm interested in (thatís being nice), the rest is poo IMHO. We have enough Wookies & Nemoidians, the white guard is crap as well (enough of them grays clogging the pegs around the world), they should have made at least a new Padme ala Leia style from the start of the movie (thatís a seller for sure). Whereís Commander Cody? This guy should have been made ASAP during the hype faze, now we may never see him, & donít get me started on the Wedge abomination. They put absolutely no thought behind anything thatís coming out, the temple pack proves this, letís throw in an Anakin (#1) with no cape & a clone Pilot as well. There were no pilots in that scene & Anakin is wearing a hooded cape as well. Most of this stuff is all rehashes & nothing more (holoís, Wedge, Wookies, even the Clones & R2 unit) which is a slap in the face to fans/kids & collectors. Nothing was thought up or even new, if it were then we would be seeing a new Wedge, Commander Cody, Padme (Leia style), Neyo etc. Wedge needs an updated body sculpt & new head sculpt as well (takes thought & effort), Cody needs a helmet sculpt along with a jetpack that can fit on the back of his Clone outfit (again some thought but not as much effort). Padme would have been simple & new head sculpt & the body could be used from Sly or one of the Handmaidens with a new paint app. (Some thought no effort required except for the head sculpt) Neyo is simple, a new head sculpt the target exclusive figure & some different paint apps. Put in with a couple of totally new figures take your pick & you have a good selection. The process that transpired here was obviously a lazy one with no effort at all, if it did have any thought put into it them Hasblow again needs to find someone a little more competent to run the ship if you all catch my drift. I havenít quite figured out if they are trying to sink the ship or save it from drowning, to me if I had to guess it looks like they are trying to sink it. Again this is just my opinion, but I can tell you this, I will save some large amounts of money in the next year or so. :D

I'm trying to be optimistic, but with what they have shown thus far, they better have some real nice surprises tomorrow or I honestly dont think this line will make it another two years.

Well if Hasbro does decide to not give the collectors/kids what they want and just keep pumping out repainted figures, hopefully another company can step up like Sideshow and take over the license in another two years!

I can tell you why we didn't get a Commander Cody....It would have required them to sculpt a new head. That is the plain and simple truth. All of the 12 are simple repaints. I'm sure that that is why we didn't get a COmmaner Neyo either. Hopefully they will come some day though....

Yeah, too much thought had to go into the process & no one with brains or balls enough to do anything half decent about it. "Lets give them repaints shall we" I can paint / customize most of these & they know this, that is why they take the easy path. :rolleyes: That is why they fail.

A lot of fans were hoping to see a Commander Cody figure at the Con, is it fair to say this figure is a likely candidate for 2006?

Yes, itís still a little too early to talk about 2006 just yet [be sure to check out the panel], but Hasbro recognizes the demand for the figure and will make it eventually.

Yes, itís still a little too early to talk about 2006 just yet [be sure to check out the panel], but Hasbro recognizes the demand for the figure and will make it eventually.

eventually beiong the optimum word there.

Here's my take on the "Dirty dozen"

1. Commander Bly from Felucia
Cool, at least I can save the time and money on doing a custom. I'll get a couple.

2. Neimoidian Warrior with silver armor and force pike
What crap! These things are MORE than clogging the shelves already. I'll get one to act as the commander of the others and that's it.

3. White Grievous's Bodyguard
Again, what the hell is up with making figs/paint scheme's NOT seen in the movie??? I'll still get 2. Again to act as "officers."

4. Wookiee Warrior (light) with soft goods tunic and
grappling hook, detonators and club
This is a crap figure from start to finish. As the preview wookiee warrior he was cool, but with a soft goods cloak??? Looks like a pansy now. The accessories suck. I can still find the preview one if I want more of him. I already have about 8 of him waiting for repaints. Don't need this one.

5. Commander Gree
I'm somewhat happy about this one. But damn that's a p!ss-poor paint job. I've seen MUCH better customs. Looks like I'm going to have to customize one myself.

6. Passel Argente in yellow robes
I'm okay with this one, just not excited about it though and expect it to pegwarm.

7. Cat Miin
Meh, I'll get one, that's it. Crap repaint.

8. Holographic Aayla Secura
Okay, this is one time where a reissue is justified. We needed a holo Aayla and this fig works for that.

9. R4-P17 - Obi-Wan's Red Astromech Droid
Astro droids are welcome in my book. I don't mind repaints of these. Besides I need some variety for the small fleet of ARC-170s that I have.

10. Wookiee Warrior (dark) with soft goods with Cannon
from Yoda #03
Damn, enough with the repaints!!! I'll get one just for the repaint, but I've already got about a dozen of these just waiting to be repainted. I'll repaint them my way, thank you very much, Hasbro

11. Special Ops Trooper (501st Legion) - Super
Articulated!
Well, it's about freakin' time!!! Hell yeah I'll buy this. Me and everyone else though... (Hasbro would do well to just ship whole cases of these, but we know
they won't)

12. Holographic Plo Koon
Same as for Aayla. Reasonable, but would have rather had Ki-Adi.

I totally agree with the sentiments about Cody. He was by far the most notable clone in ROTS. Hell use the same #6 or #41 clone body and just make a new head
sculpt and helmet. Helmet doesn't even need to slip over the head, just make them interchangeable... In that, they could have used the AT-TE gunner head or
even a Jango head from the Saga line just a little retooled. And the Cody helmet is just a retooled ROTS clone helmet. Only pieces really needed to add for the
body is the antennae for the left shoulder, rank insignia (easily done) and the backpack. (That's why #41clone would be a great choice for this, since it's already got the slot in the back waiting for the backpack)

There were a few other figures I personally would have chosen over the ones shown.

I'd say that three are welcome (Bly, Gree, Special Ops
trooper). Three are okay additions (Holo Aayla, Plo
and R4-P17) Two are alright, but could have been done
much later (Passel Argente and Shu Mai's aide). The
rest just plain suck (Neimoidian Warrior, White
Grievous's Bodyguard, Wookiee Warrior (both versions).

So to be liberal in judgement, only half are welcome
to slightly welcome and the rest either could have
been waited on or are crap. That does't bode well for
Hasbro.

Of course this is all my opinion, but I consider
myself a reasonably opinionated collector like
everyone else here. So I dont' think my comments are
all that far off the mark.

Looking back at some of these new figs, I think the Gree looks like he is not the final figure. Note that in the picture, he is carrying the OT Stormtrooper blaster and is handpainted very crudely.

While I like the fact that most of these reapaints have been done. The fact that I don't get to see one new sculpt until the new Saga line is disappointing. Hopefully this means I can pass on most of the battle packs. If this is just them trying to recoup some cost because they just released 56 new sculpts then I fine. I would much rather have this than another commtech Han.

ahhhhhhhhh, I miss comic con so BAD!! I wanna go back, I don't wanna have to deal with reality right now!

I can't wait for the hologram aayala secura. The Painted version of this figure is awesome enough and now we get a hologram version with the darker, more prettier blue color! She looks great!

edit.... I see, it has the ball jointed hips, which isn't a bad thing.

All of the figures look pretty cool.

This is bullsh*t, why must they torment us by showing him as #41 and now #38. Evil Bastards

WTF?! :mad: maybe Hazblow will reconsider using #41 again, or repaint #41, like the Shocktrooper repaint of #6. Why they used the crappy AT-TE gunner mold is beyond me. One leg is longer than the other, and the arms are horribly articulated, and the entire figure felt cheaply made, unlike #41 :(
Gree is another huge dissapointment. They could have at least made his 'suspenders' a seperate piece that snaps together on the back, instead of just crookedly painting them on. The camo paint looks horrible, and he's holding an OTC stormtrooper gun instead of the correct Clone gun. Hopefully these are just sample/protos and not the final products. Crappy or not, though, I'll still get them....just need to do a little customizing :thumbsup:

Thanks for posting the pics Battle Droid! I cant wait to get Commander Bly!

I like how the only different thing in the name of the Bodyguard is that this time it's the correct "Grievous' Bodyguard" instead of "Grievous's Bodyguard". :D

I dunno, the clone commanders look worse here than they did at Comic Con. Of course I'll still get them but it would have been nice to get some better paint aps.

Wookiee Commando and Neimoidian Commander - Yay, the return of badly photoshopped pictures! :D

thanks for posting those pics. and let me be the first to nitpick about the lime green paint on Greee's visor. i guess dark metallic green paint is too expensive? :upset:

i'm definitely going to be doing some repainting when i get this figure.

They look ok, but I always say that and like them in person.

Any idea when these should start hitting? Wouldnt it be ironic if the Neimodian was hard to find? If the last couple of waves are any indication, all these guys could fly off the shelves.

EE has them slated to arrive in NOvember, so I would say late October

I just hope that I can find these guys.
I'm a bit disappointed in the carded pictures of "Gree," but I still want it.
I really don't understand why they keep bringing back Clone #6... why not make all of the new clones super articulated, like #41?
Oh well...

Go to www.rebelscum.com (http://www.rebelscum.com) to view the images. They are on the first page eitherwise scroll to the bottom to get it from history.

Rebelscum.com also has new carded images of 64+. I think they look pretty good, well, except for the shirt-wearin' Wookiee.

Here's the official names and numbers:
57. Commander Bly (Battle Gear!)
58. Wookiee Commando (Kashyyyk Battle Bash!)
59. Commander Gree (Battle Gear!)
60. Grievous’ Bodyguard (Battle Attack!)
61. Passel Argente (Separatist Leader)
62. Cat Miin (Separatist)
63. Neimoidian Officer (Separatist Officer)
64. R4-P17 (Rolling Action!)
65. Tactical Ops Trooper (Vader’s Legion!)
66. Plo Koon (Jedi Hologram Transmission!)
67. Aayla Secura (Jedi Hologram Transmission!)
68. Wookiee Heavy Gunner (Blast Attack!)

I find it interesting how all the Collection 2 figures have exclamation marks and the occasional action feature, though that's not the case for Collection 1. Oh well.

Oh, and the Tactical Ops Trooper is indeed using the AT-TE Tank Gunner sculpt. It doesn't show whether or not he has the same removable helmet, though. I hope it does, to at least *kind of* make up for the lack of super articulation.
