    Deathstar Briefing Battle Pack and more

    I just read this somewhere:

    from the Hasbro Q and A:

    Deathstar Briefing Battle Pack SIX of officers. Vader, Tarkin, Motti, Tagge, Officer Cass, Chief Bast, General Wolf Yaluran. Exclusive to Previews/Diamond Comics.

    Republic Commando Squad Battle Pack exclusive to Entertainment Earth, HasbroToyShop and (Sev, Fixer, Delta 38, and Scorch battle three Geonosians!) Available November 1, 2007.

    OMG - I am SO HAPPY - I've been wanting the Deathstar breifing since I saw SW back in '79!!!!!

    And the battle squad pack is a very nice addition too!!

    There's sneaky pics of five officers that have been discussed in the 30th anniversary forum. It looks pretty damn sweet.

    A Republic Commando pack sounds AWESOME! Maybe I won't have to worry about getting Scorch, then.

    The Imperial Officers may be the one thing I end up being excited about from what Hasbro revealed at this convention!

    Here's the full Q&A from GH:
    Hasbro's Q&A session at Comic-Con has become an institution. The top manufacturer of boys toys and action figures meet the collectors who love their products. It's a geek love-in with a hint of interrogation, and the crowd goes wild for it.

    New "Cinema Scenes" Concept: New concept with multiple figures in one box (old, new, and kitbashed) in scene-specific packaging. Highlights include a Star Destroyer Bridge, Death Star Escape, and Bounty Hunters.

    Basic Figures: The Saga line will continue (22 figures!) past its originally planned lifespan with an assortment of army builders and key figures, as we reported previously. The Greatest Battles reissues will also continue into the fall season.

    Seven total Star Wars tins, six mass releases and one exclusive. The exclusive Modal Nodes Cantina Band will be found at Wal*Mart.

    Saesee Tiin's Jedi Star Fighter will be a mass release.

    Fantastic Imperial set even though it seems to use Jerrjerrod's sculpt on a few of the figures. New heads at least - Tagge looks great as does Bast. And I was never even aware of a guy called Cass. Its always nice to be taken by surprise like that. It gives hope that other obscure characters you do know about will be made. Yularen will bring greater diversity to the officer ranks and he has a good head sculpt too by the looks of it.

    Small downers which won't stop me buying possibly 2 of this set:

    The Tarkin head is a simple repaint of the ROTS figure - IMO that doesn't quite cut it as Peter Cushing. It did a good job of replicating a guy in a freaky lookalike mask but not of the ANH Tarkin.

    No articulated knees

    No cap for Chief Bast by the looks of it. Did he not wear a cap in this scene? Even if not it would be nice to have one as he does wear a cap in other scenes.

    The new figures all look pretty sweet, especially the Galactic Marine, Airborne Trooper, Kashyyyk Clone, and Stormtrooper Han. I don't hate the cards as much as before. Some of the "new" figures in the Tin sets are nice, and I can't wait for the Modal Nodes.

    In the basic figure part of the slideshow, who is 68? I read that 73 is a comic version of Aurra Sing, and that she and four other figures are Wal-mart Exclusives.

    Also, more cantina repacks means more money saved by me.

    Can't wait for the Imperial set.

    BTW the Republic Commando set is bit cheaper over at EE.
