Ahh... you beat me to the punch. I just saw this on EE site. The Mygeeto one seems blah but the patrol sounds to have potential.

Sorry for the odd writing i found it on 4inches.com
If i wanted figures like Rebels and Legends series i'd build a time machine. Even if i did want them, i'd probably still need a time machine..

Mygeeto would be awesome if they somehow modified the droid some, weren't there larger Octuparra droids on Mygeeto? Regardless, if the Galactic Marines have different weathering I'll be happy, and it needs to come with the ROTS Ki Adi Mundi.

The Hoth Patrol has a ton of potential in my opinion. More VTAC Snowtroopers I hope... here's how I'd go about it -

VTAC Snowtrooper x 3
Hoth Imperial Speedebike x 1
New Probot x 1

For $20.00, that would be one heck of a set.

The Hoth one sounds... well... not too exciting. The Mygeeto one sounds like it has potential, as long as it's mostly Galactic Marines. :P


I'm thinking Ki-Adi-Mundi, Bacara, and 3 Galactic Marines. The climax of this scene included no droids, so I think this shouldn't either.

The problem with the Mygeeto pack as it is being discussed here offers us nothing new... I don't know about the rest of you but I've had my fill of GMs, they're easily available after having been the holy grail for a time. Cmdr Bacara is fine but his peg holes need to be deepened. I prefer the episode I Ki-Adi-Mundi (blasphemy!!) but the ROTS one is fine as well. I know that battle packs are usually just repacks, and that is fine, but sometimes we do get new stuff like in the Ilum pack.

Hoth Pack, what I want:

VTAC Snowtrooper x3
New Speeder Bike x1
New Probot x1

What we'll get:

Saga Rebel Trooper x2
Saga Snowtrooper w/Cannon x2
POTF2 AT-AT Driver x1

As far as the Mygeeto pack goes, it will probably include Ki-Adi, the crappy bacara, a couple Galactic marines, and an octuptarra droid, which would be fine because they are good for my bridge diorama.

EDIT: Pictures didn't work. :?

Yikes!! You prefer the EP1 version over the ROTS version of our cone headed friend?

I'm afraid so :) I have a strong distaste for soft goods, so that explains it. It'd be nice to get an upgrade though, one with a separated plastic vest kind of like the newer Hans.

If they do upgrade Ki-Adi some day. I hope they give him ball-jointed arms wrists, ankles and a soft good cloak made from the Tusken Raider soft goods material. 8)

I really like the ROTS Ki Adi Mundi... in fact it's probably my favorite figure from the ROTS line.

Anyways, regarding the Hoth patrol - it could be something like this -

See this is why i shouldn't be so lazy at times, i was gonna ask about that in a Q&A and forgot.
If i wanted figures like Rebels and Legends series i'd build a time machine. Even if i did want them, i'd probably still need a time machine..

Their answer probably would have been "You'll have to wait and see." :wink: :roll: :?

While a retooled Scout/Snowtrooper combo would be ideal, I think we'll at least be getting 2 or 3 VTSC Snowtroopers and 2 white versions of the Saga Speeder Bike
