    55$ two pack speculation thread

    Hey guys!
    any idea what could this famous two pack be?
    Horde troopers? (i'm not expecting them at all now the FFM were release as a big 2013 Horde faction.)
    Skeleton soldiers? battle lion? Molkron?Clawdeen?..
    i'd love to know how you feel about that.

    It's going to be Horde Troopers. No speculation needed on this one.

    Maybe it will be a Horde Trooper/Skeletor Robot 2 pack...

    This was posted by Toyguru during the subscription drive:

    We have more POP, NA, Filmation Snake Men, Horde Members and an Army Builder pack fans have been asking for for years now all waiting on the green light for 2013.
    I'm 99% certain it's going to be Horde Troopers. They are definitely at the top of the army builder list.

    Horde Troopers are definitely favourites. What other army builder have fans been asking for "for years"? I can only think of them.

    Horde Troopers, Horde Wraiths and Robot Knights since 2008. Fans want the Horde Troopers the most, but TG has a habit of zeroing in on a really obscure character that SOMEONE asked for (see The Justice Guild for JLU and Fighting Foe Men for this line).

    I have to agree, they fit too well, and they are on the top of everyone's want list. It would TOTALLY stun me if it was New Adventures Flogg's Troopers or something else other than Horde Troopers at this point.

    By the way Replikor...i'd kill for watching your tutorial video about "how fixing reversed arms/forearms"

    Much as I love this idea, I wish we MOC collectors were getting a single carded Horde Trooper. They look great on the wall and it's gettig tough finding room for the big boxes - BattleCat, Panthor, Marlena (x2), Orko, Gygar, Shadow Beast, Tytus, Megator, Castle Guard, Snake Men, Ram Man on his way...not to mention Procrustus and Granymyr! And I don't even have a Wind Raider...yet. :P

    Maybe in the future. I still think they could make a mint repackaging existing figures in a different way to sell to us MOC collectors, fools that we may be - Kronis, Stinkor/Fisto/Whiplash/etc with 200X head, Man-E-Faces with different faces showing, both Snake Men, both Palace Guards, Mer-Man with cardback head, etc.

    I think it has to the Horde Troopers. The hints Scott through out during the sub rush and that it only makes sense. They are the most heavily utilized army in the Classics minis and Hordak needs his army.

    It's not necessarily Horde Troopers. People have been asking for various army builders for years.
    Then again, they could be next year, and the army builder he was talking about--but as a single carded, monthly figure, with the 2-pack slot going to something else.
    Or maybe it simply is a Horde Trooper two pack. Who can guess these things anymore?

    Personally I would like to see Avion warriors or Mer-Men.

    With the Power Con walk through, I really think TG would like to name drop who is coming in the line, but "Legal" wont let him, but there is no problem with him saying things like Icarius needs a partner or another POP lady is on the way. So, I think this is the closest he can get to saying the Horde Troopers are coming, without actually saying it.

    I would love to see the Horde Troopers but $55 sounds steep if it's a two pack. The Eternian Guards are $44 and you get loads of accessories. I'm thinking it will be Skeletor's robots. Probably will be a 3 or 4 pack since they will be smaller figures. I prefer the Horde Troopers but will be happy either way.

    Scott allready stated the day before the 2013 subscription cut off that the $50.00 Sub sku ($55.00 day of sale) is an army Builder two pack. He also stated it's the most fan demanded army builder two pack of all time which makes it the Horde Troopers.

    $44.00 was 2011 prices 2013 the figures are $25.00 for sub holders and $27 for day of sale so a Horde trooper two pack in the 2013 sub will be $50.00 for subscribers but $55.00 for day of sale.

    It's probably Horde Troopers.

    But, here's a thought: how about a 2-pack of Tuvar and Badros, and they come with a third torso able to support two heads. Take one arm & leg and the head of each figure and place them on the third torso: Two-Bad! (Also comes with shield, mace, and a big blaster.)

    I have never even seen a vintage Horde Trooper in the flesh(plastic). I really want this 2 pack and a 1 pack just wouldn't seem right. For me a 2 pack would be the only way to go. If it were a 1 pack it would be the first figure I would by doubles of. the horsemen are clever and I think that they will make enough options for people to have them look either very similar or different from one another. At this point I think I would want them to be pretty similar unless they wow and surprise me with something sweet which they tend to do. I wish I could have them now. I don't like waiting,

    I don't think a Horde Trooper 2 pack will have Sunder parts. I think Sunder will be a separate figure.

    Here's why: Scott gets things approved more easily if he can show that something will be reused (think of the Snake Man with the Rattlor body). The Troopers are pretty much 100% tooling, BUT if Scott can come to them and say we can get an extra figure out of this down the line with just a new head and chest piece, maybe even a Hordak variant as well...well, look at it from a strictly capitalist perspective.

    Can't wait to get this. I never had a Horde Trooper as a kid so I will be ecstatic to finally have a version of them.

    The $44 for the Palace Guards is based on the current price. Any two pack of regular sized figures would be $55 day of next year.

    I believe the last $50.00 2-pack will be Horde Troopers. Toyguru stated it is a fan demanded 2-pack and the Horde Troopers have been rumored for quite some time now.
