Here they come!
The Clone Wars army builder packs we've all been waiting for!
Just curious, but which one are you going to buy the most of?
I kind of think I'll get 2-4 Jedi sets - use one of the Twi'lek Jedi to stand in for Master Bonderra (spelling) who fights Darth Maul (my upteenth extra Maul figure) in Shadow Hunter.
The other ones are useful for basic Clone Wars scenes, though the human and Twi'Lek might also make nice bases for custom Cay Qel Droma and Tott Doneeta's from The Sith Wars.
The Droids are going to be marginally more useful. However, if you're like me, you might need collumns of Super Battle Droids and regular plain-'ol Battle Droids, and limited numbers of Destroyer Droids. I think a discount sale online (or otherwise) is the best way to build your droid armies. Still, I can use more of them than the Jedi pack.
THE CLONES: oh the clones! OK, these will NEVER be found on a shelf I'm willing to bet! Hasbro better just ship straight cases of Clone 3-packs. The main question is, are they all equally poseable?
If the lying down guy can also be posed marching, that is, can we make 3 marching clones out of the same 3-pack, then these things are going to SELL!
If not, I'll buy limited quantities. Probably under 10 until I learn if the Clone Trooper costume is the same for Episode 3 or not. (if not, well then I won't need to stockpile them).
But between Kamino, and the future Clone Wars battles I want to set up from the Expanded Universe to Episode 3, plus all of the Clone Troopers lining up on Coruscant for inspection by Chancellor Palpatine and Bail Organa - I'm about ready to go Clone crazy!
I only hope there will be enough of them out there (that remain shipping) until I get all I want.
How about you?
