OK - I wanted to post a thought but couldn't find a fitting spot for it. So I made this thread to give it a home. I do hope it sparks imagination and discussion.
I was at TRU tonight and saw the Transformer "Rancor" paint ARC-170.
"Darth Cruel! What does that have to do with Hasbro's TAC?"
Hold on, I am getting to that.
The regular white Transformer ARC-170 comes with a figure of the regular grey-clad pilot. The "Rancor-striped" one comes with a figure that is painted with "Rancor-stripes". But it is not a pilot. It is a clone trooper.
"Darth Cruel! WHAT THE HELL DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH 3 3/4" figures!?"
Just this...Hasbro is supposedly coming out with the 3 3/4" scale "Rancor-striped" ARC-170 in 2007 in the TAC line. I, myself, would be beside myself stupid with excitment to find out we were getting a 3 3/4" "Rancor-striped" Clone Trooper as well.
