Commander Ponds - The Clone Wars TRU Exclusive
« on: August 27, 2009, 01:08:21 AM »

Commander Ponds is making his way to Canadian Toys R Us stores and he is indeed a far superior exclusive than last year's ill-fated Holo Greivous (which is still on pegs in some places).

First off, I like the new smaller card with it's shiny round foil sticker. It's compact and has a lot more visual punch. Hasbro has finally reduced some of the ridiculous waste of plastic and paper that plagues the 3 3/4 line packaging but the number of sharp-angled corners (11) they've cut into the card is going to frustrate a lot of collectors trying to find something worthy of a clamshell. MOMC might very well be a rarity.



Yeah, I'm a huge Clone Wars fan and this line just keeps getting better and better. Commander Ponds is no exception.
He has the usual SA Clone body (ball-joint neck/shoulders/elbows/wrists/knees/ankles and upper torso as well as the typical swivel hips) and comes with removable helmet, blaster rifle and two holster-fitting pistols.



The paint app on Ponds' head is spectacular. He's sporting the best 5-o'clock shadow I've ever seen on a toy. I had heard it was impressive but to actually see it is something else.



Commander Ponds gets 5 out of 5 R2's for me.  :artoo: :artoo: :artoo: :artoo: :artoo:

I was also pleased with this figure, and I was blown away when I opened it.

Normally I would agree with you but I scored a MOMC one this morning ... just one of them was that way, the others had varying degrees of packaging damage .. I couldn't believe it.. I had YET to see any figure in the new packaging without some kind of crease or damage...

I love your review and I agree with it totally .. a very nice exclusive

So I finally got my hands on this guy.  And he is a pretty sweet clone. And I go him during the current 2 for 1 TRU sale. Is that some kind of writing on the back of his helmet?

It's Aurebesh writing that says "Some guys have all the luck".
