Remember when they started, there were a few 2 packs of clones? Why'd they stop that?

I remember well...these are the only Clone Wars toys I never had any interest in buying, and I buy repacks frequently. These were just completely unnecessary...the figures they trawled out were not even rare and had just been out within the past few months.

They finally got it right with the Walmart exclusive packs because those were new or at least tweaked versions. I guess those ended up morphing into the current Target exclusive 2-packs we are seeing now.

Snagged these today in KC. DCPI is 087-06-0044

Awesome...saw reports at RS and Sandtroopers these were starting to hit. Were they on the pegs or did you have to use the DCPI mind trick?

Back on the Hunt!

Yep, Clone Trooper 7 ARF is my guess too. Weird that he was not part of the slideshow. I guess he is Wave 4 or beyond?

Wish they had showed at least the next wave out, but I guess we will hear about it before Comic-Con anyway.

Ummm...who is this guy:

Is that the dude from the new Clone and Scout Speeder Deluxe set? Why is he on Vos' speederboard?

Thanks, I guess they are calling him Red Leader ARC Trooper now?

Yeah, kind of a weak Star Trek-y ending there.

I loved the Son talking about joining with Anakin and crushing the Emperor. That's a battle I would have loved to have seen.

All in all, I loved this arc and found it a lot more creative and interesting than the poisoned school drinks or whatever. I hope they do more offbeat stuff like this in the future...great fodder for new figures too.

That Fleet Trooper looked brilliant. I'd have to buy at least one or two out of sheer respect for its awesomeness. The accessories just seal the deal.

Did they show or make reference to any mid-size vehicles for the coming year, in either line?

Ugh....I noticed that too, conspicuous by its absence.

At least they brought along the set with the tactical droid...that's only been out a few months now.  ::)

Yes, great call...I thought this was very odd too. They could at least have shown us the Army of the Republic BP due out next.

Maybe worth a question in the next Q&A.

This thing is absurd...do they think everyone drives to SDCC? Good luck fitting the f-ing thing in the overhead compartment on your flight home!

Why not just release it in a 75 lb solid steel collectible garbage can?  ::)

That is just crazy. Worst...packaging...ever!

Why did Nom Anor look nothing like the version they showed in the slide show? The thing I saw on display looked like some cheesy Skeletor knock-off.

Yeah, what episode did the Trandoshan ride that speeder? No recollection of that.

This was the only part of the line that had any actual surprises. We saw no other new figures or vehicles.

They are all insanely cool though, best stuff they are doing right now, IMO, even if they are getting a little derivative.

Was Colt shown in their display? I don't think I saw him...

Thought I spied Jet in that line-up. Freaking sweet!

What's up with their waves this year though? They have messed up three or four of them now at this point, after smooth sailing most all of last year. The numbering is a mess.

Did they give time frames for this wave versus Wave 3? One of them better be March...
