With all the news about the GG Jabba/band today I was looking to see what sites had posted it for sale, and MWC has posted this for pre-order.

Description - "Contained all in one collection, here are four different versions of the infamous Clone Troopers and Jedi Saesee Tiin featured in the Star Wars: Clone Wars cartoon from Cartoon Network. Individual pieces stand 2-3" tall and come in several plastic pieces that fit together like a kit. Comes in a handsome display window box. This product is estimated to be in stock Thursday 31 May, 2007."

Sounds like this may be the clones we saw at SDCC that haven't been available yet (heavy gunner, etc.).

Hopefully we'll see pics soon.

I think I'll be getting this box set, if the price is right. I want to finish out the CW line of Bust-ups.

After that I am done with the Bust-ups, I came to realize recently just how many more mini-busts I could have right now if I hadn't bought all the Bust-up series.

Duh, left off the price, sorry. $21.24 at MWC, list price is $24.99. 5 bust-ups for a little over $4 each, can argue with that, especially when 4 are clones!

Is the Bust-up that is mostly hidden behind the Blackhole ST one of the Clones in this box set? He looks to be hefting a rocket-launcher! He and the Heavy Gunner look to be really sweet pieces.

This guy?




And looking above his gun barrel, there is a red clone that is NOT the one we just got, here's a picture:

I doubt that the RotS style will be included with Tiin. Maybe a new wave? Were these in the Clone Wars cartoon? I can't remember.

To my knowledge, all the clones in the animated series were the AOTC style with the fins on the helmets. There were shoulder missle launcher clones (see pics below) but those shown at SDCC are definitely ROTS troopers. The mystery continues.

The odd thing is that I prefer AotC animated clones better than RotS animated clones but prefer RotS movie clones better than AotC movie clones...

In Clone Wars animated Episodes 21-25 you get to see Phase II armor.

Your free shipping deal strikes again!
That saved you some serious coin in the last months.

Mike from Razor's Edge says he will have this up this week too.

I should know better than to bring that up


SithAboveAll won free shipping for a year from Northside for getting the most referrals.

So no free ship for everyone, just him.

I looked at pre-ordering this from Nside, but their cheapest shipping was around $11 for bust ups
Seems too high for me...

Can't wait for this one! Hopefully Saesee won't have a variant, as he was shown without helmet on the con.

This set looks pretty cool - I'm not too crazy about buying them as a set though, since the main one I want is Saesee Tiin...hopefully they are available at retail stores like Hot Topic, because I dont want to pay $30 to have it shipped from an online source.

Overall, I wish they would have swapped out at least 1 of those clones for another jedi, like Shaak Ti or Ki-Adi Mundi...

Hot Topic generally gets only the ones that are NOT boxed sets. Your best bet for getting these at a brick and mortar store, so you don't have to pay a shipping charge, is your local comic shop. Mine has gotten each of the boxed sets (Bounty Hunters and Cantina Band) so far.

These look nice, but I'm really not that into the animated stuff. I sort of wish GG would go back to doing film-based bust-ups. Then again, if they keep doing animated stuff that is less money I end up spending.

Sweeet. I'm glad there's some news on this and I don't have to once again order some CW bust up figures that I'm already swimming in at home.

I'm psyched for these! Maybe Saesee Tiin has a removable helmet? It'll suck if there's a variant.

I am curious as well, the Bounty Hunter and Cantina Box sets didn't have a chase but the Troopers did, so I think it's still a crap shoot which Tinn we will get. I hope it's just an option and not a chase.

These look very cool. Hopefully they will do a couple more animated waves at some point down the line. Just ordered my set from Forbidden Planet.

I'm going to take a shot in the dark and assume Dooku, Durge and Asajj are in the wave after this? I mean, I only plan on getting the set with her in it, but still...you'd think they would've made 'em by now.

Not sure about this set yet. I don't like the clones with the BFGs. Tin looks good as do the new ROTS clones. Saesee looks like he has Vader's chest plate on him, I never noticed this before.
