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...

I'm curious to see if the Republic tank is the current vehicle retooled or a new ship then.  That'll determine if I buy at this point.  I liked the Hailfire but I liked its design better.

From the pics I saw at Yakface, it appears to be a different sculpt, like the original version on steroids. The rear guns look much more impressive.

I wish they could have at least tweaked the paint job for the pack-in figure.

I saw them yesterday at TRU as well, so it might be worth checking them all.

It's a decent wave, but probably the least exciting of this year. It only gets better from here!

How deep are your pockets?

Deep enough to buy every single Clone Wars toy they have ever made, or ever will make.  ;D

I got my shipping confirmation on this today. Should be here early next week.

Thanks again for the info, Smash, That really helped me out. I dug around and saw that they threw the new TCW Jedi Turbo Speeder up as well, so I bit on that one immediately. I'm psyched to have this months before it shows up in stores.

This is In Stock and available to order now from Hasbro Toy Shop!  ;D

I ordered one immediately, came to $34.71 with tax, shipping, etc. Wish I had a valid promo code but oh well.

I'm paying $10 over MSRP, but I just don't feel like waiting til late spring on this thing. Considering I bought the Droid Gunship and Tri-Fighter back in December and they have yet to show up at retail, I think it's a good call.

Even better if the thing actually shows up in pristine shape - I won't even have to exchange it.

HTS is adding these to their site for....   $8.99 a pop....    :-X   So far the have the Senate Guard, the Droid, and Kit.

I think this price might be where I start drawing the line from ordering from HTS.    :(

Interesting, I was just on there this morning and didn't see 'em in the "New to hasbro" section, but I'm definitely checking back now. They had plenty of THOR swag though...

Thanks!

Seems a little quiet the past few days in advance of Toy Fair this weekend. No new leaks, no rumor reports, etc.

When should we expect the news to start breaking? Hasbro does their presentation Saturday, right?
