I'm gonig to post this in the Ohio findings section too, but I wanted to let you all know that I stumbled across a small, nine figure, PDQ at Wally World tonight housing the three Unleashed figures: Han in Stormtrooper Gear, Chewie and Shocktrooper. All three look VERY awesome and I gotta say Chewie is my favorite. Anyway, there you have it. welcome back, kids! :love:

These seem to be hitting across the lower midwest right now. They were also found in Kentucky and I believe WV but I'm not sure about that last one.

Yes, this is great news!!!! I did not buy one single pack of the mini unleashed figures as my own silent protest to shelving the larger Unleashed line, though be it temporary.

I just picked up my Han Stormy and Shock trooper this afternoon. I love them. I kind of wish that there was at least neck articulation though.
I can't wait to see the rest of the revived line (the ones that are rumored to come out after these 3).

Same to you Jaxx.


I found all 3 of the new Unleashed figures in Virginia Beach today at WM. They had about 4 sets of 'em so they must've put out a couple of cases worth.

I saw these the other night at my WM here in PA. I only could aford to get one so it was between Han and the Shocktrooper . . . so the Shocktrooper won. I am soooo estactic to see the larger unleashed back. those little ones just reminded me too much of the game figures . . Attaxck or something (whatever).

I checked out all three of the new figs. today. I'm happy as well to see the full sized Unleashed figures none of them did much for me. I'd say Han is the best with the clonetrooper a close second, Chewie comes in a distant third.

I have to say though that it's a real shame Hasbro is reintroducing this line by expanding their rehash/repaint fever to include Unleashed figures.

I found just a lonely Shocktrooper, and bought it up. I am curious if it was returned, seeing as I never saw it out the day before, and when I came in the next morning, there it was all by itself. At either instance, I was glad to see these are hitting the shelves, as I was going through withdrawal.

I have to say though that it's a real shame Hasbro is reintroducing this line by expanding their rehash/repaint fever to include Unleashed figures.How do you figure? The Han is a brand new figure and I'm pretty sure the Shocktrooper is as well. The only one I'm not sure about is Chewie but even if he is a "rehash" he's from AOTC and comes with completely different accessories.

Kidhuman
05-22-2006, 07:41 AM
Chewie is in ROTS, not AOTC, The stormtrooper HAn is a rehash trooper with a han head.

Slicker
05-22-2006, 02:04 PM
Chewie is in ROTS, not AOTC, The stormtrooper HAn is a rehash trooper with a han head.Wow. I can't believe I said AOTC. Either way you get the picture but I wouldn't count Han as a rehash though seeing as it's got his head and the removable helmet along with the new base.

So to me they are all new.

I found them as well this morning, after about a week of not even hitting stores. Nice "welcome back" present.

Now if WM just had my laptop and my wife's wedding band, all would be well with the world.

Hey Slick,
Han is a rehash of the trooper (although it appears the only thing rehashed is the main body, you already mentioned this)
Chewy is a rehash of the ROTJ version (diff weapons and base I think)
Shocktrooper is a rehash of the AOTC trooper (diff paint, base, and gun I think)

Total rehash wave, the first whole wave we've seen like this in the unleashed line (except if you consider the package variations). I like the clone and Han, but I think I might pass on these since I have no more room for them. Hell, I just put my whole loose collection in storage bins a few weeks ago because of this.

I went to wal-mart they didn't have crap. I didn't get the Stormtrooper from last year or whenever it came out, Aura and IG were there but no trooper.

It appears that Han and Shocky will move quickly, and Chewie will pegwarm like the love child of Malakili and the Neimoidian Warrior.

I haven't had the chance to see these in person yet. It takes a while to get new toys at my WMs. Getting new toys here sucks because it takes a long time.

They look great in the package. I think Han is the best in the set. The trooper would had been the best if it wasn't for his funky helmet. I do like Chewy's ROTS accessories, looks better than the 1st release. I don't think we will see too many of these figures. WM exclusive only ship 1 or 2 times.

Slicker
05-28-2006, 11:19 AM
I thought it was just me that thought the Clones helmet looked a bit...off.

I think it's just a bit too tall but other than that it looks good.

Kidhuman
05-28-2006, 02:48 PM
Turbs, agreed, Han is the best. I like the shocktrooper too. Chewie is ok, buit seeing as I missed the first release, it is a welcome addition.

Ok, another dum question- Is the trooper in the same pose as the old clone? (only with a different gun?)

Got hooked up with these today (thanks Snags!) and yes the Shock is the same as the AOTC Clone trooper. The base is new though. I'd like to get another set of these to open. For some reason I really wont to see Chewy with his shield. I doubt I will ever see them in the stores so I'll just have to live with what I have.

I bought Han and the Shocktrooper today and I was comparing them to my other Unleashed (I have everyone loose) I think they got a little sloppier with the paint apps this time. This new Han's face doesn't even compare in likeness or paint app to the first Unleashed Han. The lines on the Shocktrooper's helmet look hand done and hurried. It seems the quality has gone down. Still I'm happy that these were finally released.

I was surprised to see these in the store today, I was still under the impression that Unleashed was cancelled. I didn't even know there are new ones coming out? :confused:

I picked up a set in case any other collectors are looking for them...I'm not getting any for myself, though.

There is a few I'd like to see in the Unleashed line.

A new Maul . . the first one was good, but give me the pose from the Theed Hanger and I'd be happy

Special Ops (501st) trooper . . just cause I love the blue!

Robed Anakin from ROTS . . sometime after his turn . . with the red/yellow eyes and what not . . awesome!

Scout trooper . . . this one would be a little hard. Do you do the full speeder bike with it . . do you include a section of it?? But I'd like to see it!

A better Jango . . something more dramatic . . like a POC Boba only Jango . . .

Of course any new Storm/Clone Troopers they can come up with are always nice! I'm sure there are others more deserving to have they're shot at unleashed, but these are the one's I'd like to see.

It's nice to know It'll be a different Maul. Don't think I would buy another "ballet" Maul.

jaxx
06-11-2006, 10:33 PM
I actually like the first Maul.:yes: I like how dynamic the pose is. Lately, the poses have been so static (take the Shocktrooper pose for example). The whole idea of the line is in its name... UNLEASHED! These should be wild poses. :whip:

So... here's the list of upcomming figs... call them rumored or confirmed... y'all know how these things change:

Boba Fett - Greatest Hits
Darth Vader (Version 1) - Greatest Hits
General Grievous - Greatest Hits
Yoda / Emperor - Greatest Hits
(apparently two are Target Exclusives, and two are Wal*Mart Exclusives in tube packaging like the Best Buy Vader)

Darth Maul (Version II)
Greedo
Kit Fisto
R2-D2 w/ Battle Droids
Sandtrooper
Darth Vader (A New Hope)
Obi-Wan (A New Hope)
Luke Skywalker (New Hope Poster)
Princess Leia (New Hope Poster)
(these should be mass retail)

I'm totally notlooking forward to the "greatest hits" line. I am looking forward to all of the mass retail figs. I'm really curious to see what the R2-D2 will look like... but I'm really looking forward to the new Maul, Kit Fisto, and the Sandtrooper. I think I'll get all of the mass reatail wave except Greedo (what the hell can they do with him, y'know). I just hope that Hasbro will be very innovative with their bases and poses.
So I guess I can look forward to being out another $120.:rolleyes:

I'm hoping a friend will come through with the Han stormtrooper Unleashed for me. I had the shock trooper already.

Saw Chewie in the store for the first time this past weekend. It was OK, an improvement over the Hoth Chewie.
