Hasbro really got the second wave of "Shadow Of The Dark Side" Battle Packs right. Both ARC Troopers and Mandalorian Warriors were released and the positive buzz started almost immediately. And we need to let Hasbro know that this is the way to go as far as the Battle Packs line is concerned. And in general, Hasbro doesn't have too much difficulty making very engaging Battle Packs based on The Clone Wars. They are pumping a dry well when it comes to sets based on realistic figures. While great sets based on The Clone Wars don't do anything for collectors of movie-only product, it does satiate the appetite for those who collect one of everything. But even as fans of movie product ourselves, we canâ€™t help but get excited over these Battle Packs sets from Hasbro. While we still are disappointed that the format has dropped from five down to four figures, Hasbro sort of makes up for it when they include "new" figures or figures you can only get in that actual set. This of course isn't popular with everyone, but Hasbro needs to do something to keep the sales strong at retail and new figures are pretty much a guarantee that this will happen.
Mandalorian Warriors is an army builder's dream come true. When they first were shown in The Mandalore Plot episode of The Clone Wars, there were a ton of them. Hasbro obviously picked up on this rather quickly and got a great set out to collectors without making them wait too long. This isn't the first time we have seen the Mandalorian Warrior in the toy line. No, we first got this character when it was released in the Deluxe like as Mandalorian Speeder With Mandalorian Warrior. That was not a bad set, but now collectors have the opportunity to pick up four more all at once to help pad their Mandalorian army. Pre Vizsla looks like he has a great battalion of soldiers behind him now. The Battle Packs set is nothing too fancy, but you do get four marvelously articulated action figures for a very reasonable price. These are action figures that rival the articulation of many of The Vintage Collection figures (which retail as high as $9.99 each at some stores) as they not only include a ton of ball-jointed articulation but also ball-jointed hips, a feature that we are drooling over for Hasbro to include in the realistic line.
