Topic: Boba Fett and BL-17 2-pack (plus the Commando Evolution set)

I was wondering if anyone had actually seen a pic of the new Fi Skirata (yes, Fi from Omega Squad of Republic Commando novels fame) action figure that RebelScum had posted on their site from the recent NY Toy Fair 2009? Pretty neat.

It even has an updated (from blue Lieutenant to red Captain) verison of ARC Trooper Alpha from the Star Wars Republic comics.  You'll remember they had him in one of the earlier comic 2-packs, with an Anakin figure.  Looks like he's based off of the pic that Joe Corroney did of him for the Star Wars Insider Magazine.

They also are coming out with a Boba Fett and BL-17 Legionnaire battle droid 2-pack, which is really freakin' cool.  Now I don't have to kitbash a 3PO protocol droid into a Legionnaire battle droid.

Did anyone actually attend this show?

No I didn't but I really want the Evolutions one.  Looks really nice.

Wow, I can't believe I missed this upcoming 2-pack! Admittedly, I was quickly skimming through the slide presentation when it came out while I was on vacation... I must say though, that Dark Trooper looks pretty cool smile

This Fett is a repaint of the Holiday Special one, or at least has its holster. A neat Fett variation and droid, I'm in.

I want this whole Droid Factory series.

You know the new Droid Factory series, when you put all the pieces together, is going to make HK-47 (for all you KOTOR fans).  I actually wouldn't mind getting that.

I wonder if this means they're also going to make a Phase 1 Dark Trooper?  I know they have them for the Star Wars miniatures game.

Isnt the Phase 1 trooper the silver one? If so, yeah they already have it. I put a picture of mine here: http://www.bobafett.com/boards/viewtopi … 82&p=5

I didn't notice until you mentioned someting.  It was supposed to be the final phase Dark Trooper from the game.  The Phase I Darktrooper looks different and has a very basic skeletal appearance.
http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Darktrooper
http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Phase_I_dark_trooper

But looking at the pics they have on Wookieepedia, the "Phase II" figure that's coming out looks exactly like the main picture of the "Phase III" they have on here.
http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Phase_III_dark_trooper

The first Dark Trooper figure, like the one you have the picture up for, looks like the left picture they have on that same page, with a more stormtrooper looking helmet.  The helmets are different, for some reason.  Either way, the new "Phase II" doesn't look remotely like the Phase II they have pictured here.  The Phase II just looks like a Stormtrooper on Weightgain 5000.....BEEFCAKE!!  BEEFCAAAKE!!
http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Phase_II_dark_trooper

I know it mentions a variant on the page, but it doesn't really go into much detail about it.  Who knows?  Maybe they'll update it before it's released.  I'm sure we're not the only ones who noticed it, with all the other collector's out there.  Especially the ones that are rabid about details (I plead the fifth).  They're both really sweet figs, though.  The Darktrooper dwarfs all the other trooper figs on the shelf.  Kind of intimidating. 

It's interesting that the Darktrooper is the "buildable" droid for this series, and not the BL-17 or the Astromech droid (figured I better put something in here that was on topic).

I refuse to accept that that is Fi. Not his armor, at all.

Epic Fail, Hasbro. I was going to buy it, for Fi, but not after them botching it that bad, at least I doubt it.

Maybe when they release it, enough fans will have complained that they'll change the name to Niner?  It's just like when they screwed up the Kal Skirata figure by giving him too young of a face sculpt, so they renamed it, however, he's still wearing Skirata's armor.  And the same with the Walon Vau figure that ended up something else.  It figures (no pun).

My thoughts exactly...  Bada@@ lookin' figure there, even if it does look more like my source book's Phase III more then the II *which is great, since I like the III's better anyway*
