I thought the Battle Droid was a red version of the new exploding one shown at SDCC.

Some people are saying it looks as if Sandtrooper's gun is part of his arm. These photos are so doctored, its not clear. Odds are they are right.

Surely, a basic Phase 1 Clone Trooper is one of the first 12. Super Battle droid and/or Destroyer droid are likely.

I just paid a quarter for that R2 at a garage sale on saturday. Ha...it's popular and common as heck.

Everyone acts like the space program had huge popular support amongst the U.S. public. But it did not. We fortunate that Cold War was going on and the government pushed the Apollo Program as much as they did. Left up to an actual popular vote, Armstrong probably wouldn't have made history.

If that's really Billy Dee Williams, then I'll give it a shot.

I think some of the character designs are bad, even for exagerrated style. And Seth McFarlane's Emperor never sounded like even an impression of the character, just another Seth McFarlane voice.

Leia is like 10 and Han is like 30? I realize there's age gap in the live action actors, but...

-Moving to Sat Mornings on CN.  Blah, but this is clearly, to me, a ratings push with kids since I think Friday Nights are probably not working well.


I don't get this. It was reairing on saturday mornings already.

Cartoon Network has a history of sabotaging shows with an adult fanbase by changing air times and limiting rebroadcasts, like Justice League and Masters of the Universe.

I thought that the people saying they were done when vintage ended were being close-minded, but maybe they have the right idea.

Will a standard (non-red-painted) Scuba Trooper be released individually like with the Aqua Droid?

No.

Are we ever going to get Fives (or Echo) in his ARC trooper armor?

It's unlikely.

It's over, if obvious clone repaints, even ones of recurring characters, are out of the question. Could've been stuck in a battle pack at any time...I'd think.

By kids, they mean kids that should be given the Jedi Force-whatever line and not proper action figures. But the window of kids playing with toys is small, so parents get young spoiled kids toys that they probably aren't ready for yet.

Same with the class 2 reduced scale vehicles. That idea belongs in a Jedi Force line.

Someone said the Class 2's are scaled down due to a request from Lucasfilm.

Whatever.

Strange that the CW class 1 vehicle will have better articulated figures than the movie themed stuff. Still wondering about the price point what with the added figure.

It's not Goldie's mold. This R2-D2 uses the CW build-a-droid style mold that was used on a later astromech.

Continuing 2013's trend of no new characters!

Galactic Hunter's facebook page has photos of 2013's Class 2 vehicles and their boxes. (SSG has photos, too).

Slave 1 is a smaller one-seater. The Fighter Tank is new and smaller, the smaller hatches that opened on the original no longer do. Now only one pilot fits in the center and one in the top hatch.

Obviously no break off wings on the Jedi Starfighter. I won't miss those.

1 new figure. 501st Jetpack Clone Trooper and also R2-D2 using the CW B-A-D sculpt.

And 4 repacks (Anakin, Obi-Wan, phase 2 rex, R2-D2 and Battle Droid)...from what I could tell. That's wave 1. Looks like Rex might have a new gatling gun.

Now we know the A-Wing pilot is a human.

How utterly boring.

No "bonus" Phase 2 helmet with Rex or standard trooper helmet with the Clone Pilot. Bah.

We get Jango's helmet with Mace. Is Jango's head in it?  :o Or is it just the one from CW with the bomb inside?

Smaller class 2? What? Is that what Hasbro said or did someone misinterpret them?
Already limited by what they can do, and they shrink it? So is that a new fighter Tank that's smaller? Doesn't make sense...cuts back on what they can reissue (is there anything to reissue that's smaller...Luke's sandspeeder?). They are gonna Battle Pack that assortment out of existence.


Deluxe "class 1" with two figures included? Again...wha...? Won't that raise prices on those?

The MTT one is interesting. The Yoda one is goofy.

So was the sandtrooper shown actually for Movie Heroes? He's holding some big vacuum cleaner gun.

I get the impression collector's sites are suffering from all this mess. When store reports...individual store reports from a certain part of the country are news...well, things are messed up all around.

"Hey, wave 5 was found in Boise, Idaho."

Heck, I'll book a flight there.
