In the case where Lego thinks it's a good business opportunity to deliver battle packs (and I think it is since children can now afford small sets with troops to recreate battle and action scenes while some adult can buy them again and again to gather armies), could we talk about the next battle packs.

The two first BP releases where for antagonistic armies: droids vs. ROTS clones, Empire vs. Rebel Alliance.

So we can suppose that the next BP will confront 2 foes.

And we can suppose that we won't find "crazy" BP with clones commandos or from videgames, etc.

THE MATTER is, on one hand, that while we need AOTC clones BP, we needn't anymore separatist BP (except if they came with unusual characters like 1 old style droideka, 1 tri-droid, 1 MagnaGuard, some pilot or security droids, more Geonosian battle droids or Geonosians, which isn't like to happen).

On the other hand, we still need OT BP for Galactic Empire (Death Star/Navy trooper, more snowtroopers or scout troopers, maybe new EU trooopers like seatroopers or commando stormtroopers).

It would be fine to find 2 new BP containg non foe troops (clones & Empire), wouldn't it?

What do you think about this?

I think we already have a battle pack thread (quite a few actually).

But just to play along, I'd really like phase I clones, Snowtroopers, Scouttroopers and Endor Rebels (with an Ewok). Maybe LEGO could swing it to have 2 jedi BPs, just so wee could get the classics we all want from the council, and then after buying more we can mix and match to make our own.

Given my activity in other forums recently, I feel like a bit of a hypocrite in posting this, but this site has a stand on this issue, so...

As I posted in the "Clone Wars Continued?" thread, I want a Clone battle pack with Phase 1 Sergeants, Lieutenants, Captains, Majors, etc.
Actually, here are all my bp ideas:

Episode I battlepacks:

Since we've already got a droids battlepack, why make another WITHOUT Supers. I say for Episode I we do two armies of good guys.

Gungan Battlepack:
Model: I say the huge cart with some "boomas" pulled by a kaadu.
Minifigs:
1 Kaadu
4 Gungan warriors (w/ shields and spears)
Price: $10

Naboo Battlepack:
Model: Two windows with ropes hanging from the top one.
Minifigs:
4 Naboo Soldiers
Price: $10

Episode II/Clone Wars battlepacks:

As several people mentioned earlier, tri droids, droidekas, etc. would be good. I've gots three battlepack ideas for Episode II/Clone Wars

CIS Battlepack
Model: Maybe part of the grandstand from the Geonosis arena
Minifigs:
1 Tri-Droid
1 Droideka
2 Geonosis battle droids
2 Geonosians
Price: $10

Phase I Clone Battlepack (Same as in the "Clone Wars Continued?" thread)
Model: Same as in the original Clone Battlepack
Minifigs:
2 Clone Troopers
1 Clone Trooper Sergeant (green markings, Jet Trooper in BF2)
1 Clone Trooper Lieutenant (blue markings, Heavy Trooper in BF2)
1 Clone Trooper Captain (red markings, Clone Sharpshooter in BF2)
1 Clone Trooper Major/Commander (both have yellow markings, Clone Engineer in BF2)
Price: $15 (but totally worth it Cool )

Jedi Battlepack (#1):
Model: Jedi Council window, and half of seats
Minifigs:
Yoda
Obi-Wan Kenobi (Episode II or III)
Ki-Adi-Mundi
Stass Allie
Shaak Ti
Yaddle
Price: $15

Jedi Battlepack (#2)
Model: Jedi Council Enterance, and half of seats
Minifigs:
Mace Windu
Plo Koon
Agen Kolar
Kit Fisto
Aayla Secura
Anakin Skywalker (Episode III)
Price: $15

(All Jedi in both battlepacks would come with appropriate lightsabers, capes, hoods and headpieces)

Episode III Battlepacks: Already have

Episode IV Battlepacks: Already have

Episode V Battlepacks:

Hoth Rebel Battlepack:
Model: Enclosed Hoth turret
Minifigs:
4 Hoth Rebels
1 TAUNTAUN
Price: $10

Snowtrooper Battlepack:
Model: Hoth Dish Turret
Minifigs:
3 Snowtroopers
1 AT-AT Driver
1 WAMPA
Price: $10

Episode VI Battlepacks:

Endor Rebel Battlepack:
Model: Ewok glider, small part of Ewok treehouse
Minifigs:
3 Endor Rebels (WITH HELMETS)
3 Assorted EWOKS

Endor Imperial Battlepack:
Model: Two Speeder Bikes
Minifigs:
5 Scout Troopers
2 Stormtroopers

Keep in mind that this is what I'd like to see, not what I expect to see.

I'm hoping for an Episode II Clone battlepack and a Geonosian one to go with it.

Geonosian Battlepack:
4 Geonosians, 1 LRK Sonic Cannon, 1 Orray

Clone Battlepack:
3 clone troopers, 1 ARC Captain, 74-Z speeder (as long as it isn't the same as the one in the gunship), mobile command centre

If TLG has any intention of doing a Phase 1 Clone BP, it will not be with the original Ep 2 helms. They'd most likely continue to build off of the Clone Wars film and possibly the TV series.

If TLG has any intention of releasing CW based BPs, I will surely avoid purchasing Clone BPs, unless they include an interesting vehicle or something like all the previous BPs. All I have been doing recently is when I get reg Clones, I simply trade them away.

So evidently this thread is lasting longer than I thought it would, but...
