The Obi Wan Kenobi version of the JEDI STARFIGHTER w/hyperspace ring from 'Attack of the Clones', originally Saesee Tin, but of course, now with new head sculpt and colors.
The other is the Clone helmeted version and repaint of the Republic Gunship. Previously it had a much less garish color scheme. It is now blue helmeted instead of the previous yellow.
You can see them in Seibertron's galleries of toy fair, here.

hahaha there's a guy trapped inside the chesttigertracks 24 wrote:No it's not the newest molds that we reported earlier (Grievous Spaceship and Tie Bomber), instead it is a couple of figures that we may have forgotten were coming out. These two new Transformers were found at a Target in Washington.

Those are some unattractive figure designs right there. Yowza.

Another thing is, that like how I scored the Milleneum Falcon of Ebay at a 2 for one price. I just did the same with the Death Star for even less!
Gotta be careful with quantity offers sellers

I actually quite like the mold, it's probably the best of the standard SWTF figures, but would rather see new characters such as Kit Fisto or Plo Koon.
The Clone Pilot figures is a good repaint of an terrible figure, the thing can barely stand up, let alone in a half decent pose.

I think Obi-Wan is mistransformed in that pic - his lower half should be rotated round so the leg screws can't be seen.
That, and the gigantic 'crotchplate' is supposed to fold on his back. This Episode II Jedi Starfighter mold is actually pretty nice when properly transformed. That huge ring on his back is like Prime's trailer a removable piece that can attach to both modes.

I'm going to have to think hard on getting these or not

Could someone 'please' get these people to transform the toys right before they display them? Is that so much to ask for?
