19543 Nikto Robino {sic} Bounty Hunters

Robonino? I am loving the sound of that!  :o

Great stuff. Hard to tell what some of those multipacks might be...re-packs or otherwise.

Don't see getting Jodo next month though, it'd be nice.

My contact at TRU swore he saw the Hasbro Rep literally slapping the sticker on one of the boxes ALREADY ON THE SHELF.

I don't see why he would lie, so I tend to think this is all BS on Hasbro's part. EPIC SHADY.

Oh they hit here alright but if you blinked you missed them. I have all of them MOC but I wanted some extras for opening and there are none to be found. :(

Maybe we'll see some this summer.

bought another magnaguard at tru,LOVE this sale!!

What's wrong with your TRU that they keep stocking new TCW figures? Don't they realize this is against their business model of only stocking Clone Wars figures from 2009?

I literally might have a heart attack if I walked into a TRU around here and found a Clone Wars figures less than six months old.

You can't even order a Magnaguard direct from Hasbro! I guess my dreams of finding one for opening is dead.

Our TRU put out 5 more cases today...that's at least 10 so far, not bad at all.

3261
My contact at TRU confirmed the Hasbro rep was by yesterday slapping stickers on the old product. Not figures, but a couple of starfighters...some them at lunch myself today. What a crock.


3262
I'd bet anything we are going to get a Barriss Offee.

They just made Shaak-Ti in the realistic style and she was on this list, so I don't think it matters so much to them what's happening with a release in another line. Anyway, I hope not.

Considering that Star Wars: Republic Heroes is a game that bridges Seasons 1 and Seasons 2 of the Clone Wars series, I really don't think it's that big of a deal for a figure like this to come out.


Yeah, that's a good point and one of the reasons I have no qualms about picking this up. This makes more sense to me than Quinlan Vos, for sure.

It does seem to fly in the face of their whole "it's a kid-based line" mentality though...seems like more of a collector-focused figure.

Well, shut my mouth.  :-X

So it is.

Oops!

Latest TCW figure rumors, courtesy of RS:

Ki-Adi-Mundi

Flamethrower Clone Trooper

Clone Trooper Pilot

R2-D2 Astromech Droid

R4-P7

Shaak Ti

Boba Fett

Embo

Zombie Geonosian

Commander Jet

Quinlan Vos

Cato Parasiti

R7-A7

Not sure how accurate this stuff is, so I will refrain from any positive or negative freakouts, but most of these sound pretty plausible. Cato, Embo, and Zombie Geonosian sound like sure-fire home runs. I don't know that we really need 3 more astromechs, but they're harmless enough. I also wish we could get a "regular" Geonosian before, or at least along with, the Zombie version, but whatever.

The one that potentially bugs me is that Vos guy though. Keep that non-TCW stuff in the non-TCW lines, please. Kul Teska is a stretch, but this one goes over the line, IMO. Couldn't they have slotted this into one of the many, many comic packs they put out over the years? Why jam him into the animated line? If they're planning on rolling him into Season 3, I'm fine with it, but otherwise it just seems like he is taking a spot that could be better used for another worthy candidate, like Bossk. (Just wondering aloud, not really looking to start an argument here) :)

I can't shake the feeling all of these missing waves will be suddenly vomited onto the pegs a couple of months from now.


I've been wondering about that too since I've also noted the recent glut of the TLC ESB Wave arounf here. I think the big difference is that these last 3 TCW Waves are the end-of-the packaging waves, and Hasbro has been known to under-produce the last few waves before a relaunch. I'm worried that they just may not have made that many in the first place. Otherwise I'm not sure where these things are all jammed up, and why we haven't seen more than a trickle to date.

That totally makes sense about the new case assortment, and I fully agree that those were idiotic choices. Rex just looks goofy with those ear flaps and Snow Obi is just plain boring. On the other hand, I would KILL for another MagnaGuard for openers. :(

Had to wait til I got home last night to actually view the pics. Very cool.

I'll be honest: I HATE HATE HATE this trend of them putting non-TCW EU into the TCW line. If they're not in the show, they need to be slotted into another line, IMO.

That said, this is a really cool sculpt and of course I'll be picking him up. I just wish they could have made him as Wat "Don't call me Jeffrey" Tambor instead.

Where's Pre's Wicked Cool Black Lightsaber? Looks like he is pictured holding some kind of knife. When did he use a knife in that episode?

Agree 100% that Aurra is the runaway winner of the lot. Count me in for multiples.

Definitely a solid and reputable buyer...sent payment for EU Wave right away and included extra cash to insure shipping, insurance, DC, etc would be covered. I would recommend Michael to anyone and would deal with him again with no hesitation. Five Stars!
