Now if you ignore my small changes in clones ull see that when you get this set they come in a baggie with grey arc trooper gear. 4 Clones and Rex. My clones have Little Arms Weapons so ignore them.

And uhh. Yeah. Thats the review. Do I need anything else?

Well, the only rare thing here is Rex. Also, the pic are resized nicely so I hope all of them will be like this.

Yes, plus some clones. Also, there also is a chance of getting the old clone battle pack, right?

The comic con set comes with a really neat poster. The droid battle pack, the hailfire droid set, 4 clones, and rex. I will get pics of them when I get home which will probably be sunday.

Hopefully this year me and my older brother are going to be able to hit up comic-con 09. Then spend some time and Legoland. That would be like a dream for me *wishes*

If you plan on going to any of the days of the Comic Con, you better order your passes now.  I was just on the site and all the 4 day passes are already sold out and Saturday is almost sold out too!  :pir_bawling:

That's the only problem with Comic Con now, it's almost too popular for its own good! :look: Last year was intensely crowded.  It used to be that Saturday was the only day like that, but now even the "Preview" night is packed every year.  

I saw the LEGO exclusive set, but since I'm not that into Clone Wars, I really didn't really see the need to go after it.  The Exclusive Indy set was more interesting to me, but I didn't get that either. :sad:

Have you opened the set yet? If so, are the droids in the old droidBP still the old style blasters and arms? Thanks. I look forward to the completion of this.

Yes. I opened this when it first came out but I keep everything except the baggies. And unfortunatly yes. Old arms and blasters. Its a good thing I have plenty of the new arms and blasters. So it all works out.

Sorry for double posting but I just got home and the pics are up. Are they sized right? Just need to make sure. And is there anything else I need?

Thanks for reviewing this.  The pics are all sized right, but the ones of the comic are too blurry, making the comic near impossible to read.  If you could retake those, that would be great.

Have you built the set?  If so, you could show the clones and the other two sets together built.

Good job, though!

Thanks for reviewing this set. It looked great at the time, but now it looks... :sceptic: . They should have used some unique pieces in this set instead of using other sets, which you could buy together and get cheaper than this. :sadnew:

Greetings,
JD

All it is, is 7670 (Hailfire droid/Spider droid), 7654 (Droid battle pack), & a little baggie that had 4 clones and rex. Ill get better pics in a little bit. And some of the sets combined with the figures.

Not sure, but on bricklink it said that was an option. Is Rex's gear black or gray?

It is gray.  Check in the first post under the clone with their bag picture, he says Rex comes with gray arc gear.

You are correct. Mine just has black gear. Sorry for the confusion.

Thanks for the review!

I checked the ''Review-Index'' and saw that we haven't got one till now :thumbup:
As a rare-item-collector I also have one of these 1200 beauties.
And I must say they are awesome, especially the Comic.
So thanks for sharing.

I agree 100% with you. It was a bit expensive but It is soooo worth it.

I went to comic-con with my cousin and he bought the set. Then he sold it on Ebay a couple months later because he said it wasn't worth it.
