ARF Trooper Waxer & Battle Droid 2-pack

Yakface have posted a new spy report on a new 2pack...

Edit, this set is ARF trooper Waxer and a Battle Droid

Any thoughts on this news?

This is cool news. An ARF Waxer to go with Boil. I'll call the other ARF Trapper.

Re: Clone Wars ARF & Clone Trooper Waxer 2-pack

I'm torn, a generic two pack would have been a great way to army build some geonosis arf's but that would have prevented us from getting Waxer. I hope they go with the two named clones and just make on trapper

Re: Clone Wars ARF & Clone Trooper Waxer 2-pack

It's a buy for me! I made an ARF Boil a while ago, so now I just need to finish him and then get this. No need for Hasbro's Boil! Not sure how much I want Waxer's AT-RT though... I'm not much of a vehicle guy... Ah well.

Re: Clone Wars ARF & Clone Trooper Waxer 2-pack

Cool, I say the other is Trapper, but who knows. Maybe it'll be a normal ARF. Here's hoping Waxer has a removable helmet. But seeing that Boil didn't, I doubt it. Bummer.

But I'll definitely get this, and Boil with his AT-RT when I can.

Re: Clone Wars ARF & Clone Trooper Waxer 2-pack

I'm loving the fact that Hasbro keeps re-issuing the AT-RT just wish I could find one of them at retail...never saw the first release of this set and the camo version I have yet to spot as well...

now a third version ???? what gives... is Hasbro trying to really screw with me on these sets or are there just that many army builders in the Central NJ area that have thousands of these sets?

The assumption is that this is a figure 2-pack and will not include the AT-RT.

Camo looks more accurate. Might buy two. They can flank my Flamethrower trooper.

Re: ARF Trooper Waxer & Battle Droid 2-pack

Not a bad 2pack at all, Hasbro must be learning. Wouldn't mind picking up a few of these to army build with.

I agree, I'll pick up a few of these so my son can have bigger battles. Pretty good 2-pk combo.

If they were learning, then that Battle Droid would've had swivel forearms and hinged knees. But nope, still the same junky figure that's worthless for armies

Re: ARF Trooper Waxer & Battle Droid 2-pack

Waxer will look great with the Boil from the AT-RT set. The brown looks a bit lighter on Waxer than Boil, hopefully that is not the case on the final production deco.

Nice! Now all we need is a Geonosian-deco AT-TE Gunner and the Second Battle of Geonosis is covered.

I really, really hope this isn't the end of maroon colored Battle Droids. This set is only a one-fer for me, though.

Hasbro are most likely saving an update for a later date in the basic line, these packs are ususally older figures to save on making new molds and giving us an updated deco.

Nearly the exact same figure as Boil. Waste of money!

You do realize they were the same armor with different markings, exactly like the show, right?
Yes, but the figures side by side show little difference or any. Unless, I'm missing something.

I have both right in front of me. Just opened Waxer minutes ago.... Waxer has a big orange stripe on his helmet. Left arms are completely different. Waxer has the Numa head more towards the rear of his helmet and it is not as detailed as Boil's Numa. Even the camo application has a different design. They are very different and it's hard to pick a favorite of the two, but I give Boil the edge for the more detailed Numa. Other than that, yes they are identical...

Re: ARF Trooper Waxer & Battle Droid 2-pack

can someone who's lucky enough to have Waxer already post a picture of him standing next to Boil from the AT-RT set?

I'm hoping their colors match uniformly.

Re: ARF Trooper Waxer & Battle Droid 2-pack

okay so Waxer's color palette is a pretty close match to Boil and his camouflage is almost as intricate.

I'm happy.


thank you for posting the pictures!
