The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Clone Wars Figure Rumors/Speculation

The Super Battle Droid is new, SWEET!

Edit It's a training simulator Super Battle Droid from the Clone Cadets episode, repaint of the same old sculpt..... no new articulation. :(

Wait, so Hasbro used up one of the only 19 slots for TCW with a repaint of a crappy SBD...?

Not. Cool.

Esepcially since they could've stuck it a battle pack with Kamino training armor Droidbait and Fives or whoever. I mean, it's odd to make a training target when the squad isn't done yet.

There's a few easy options for CW battlepacks with little to no new tooling, but they sculpt new Episode 1 and ESB figures for them instead.

By modern prices that Hoth Battle set would be $50.

That Fett might look bigger than he really is because of 3 seperate images photoshopped together.

These fell very vintage-y to me. Call me crazy, but I like them. If more realistic styling/likenesses take precedent over articulation and price, I'm all for it.

Then the Emperor has already won...

(I had to say it.)

So...according to some questions asked at Toy Fair, no single carded scuba clone planned. Or maybe that particular deco isn't planned. Maybe'll they'll release the scuba leader at a muuuuch later date.  Either way, those planning a CW Scuba Trooper army are in for a headache.

Armored Oppress will return (at a date past the point when most people will care).

If the vintage line goes away, there you have the future of Star Wars.

Ironic, considering those battle pack figures are closer to actual vintage Kenner toys than what's on vintage style cards now.

Hasbro is tight with info lately (no slide show, somewhat less leaked figures on ebay). Can we rule out a 2012 mail-in yet? Have they officially said there would not be one?

Got Jean Claude Danva/Battle Droid & Roth Mason/Super battle droid Geonosis arena sets for $5.08 each...Yeah, 3 years ago and a different collection!  :P I'm annoyed last time I was there they had Fisto/Genosians guess some army builder or ebay hustler scooped them all up when they hit $5. 

Passed on a Saga Legends ROTS Anakin for $2. If he'd had the secret weapons I'd have gotten him.

Last vintage 3-pack was back up to $24.99.  :(

No shuttles left...*phew* dodged that bullet again (the bullet being the "too cheap to pass up but I know it take up more space that its worth").

No unusual Target mark downs of sith 2-packs or clone wars figures.

We gotta wait until next week for what I think is part 1 of another 4 part saga. Making this season composed of just 8 or 9 stories when its done.  (9 if you consider the two R2-D2 & C-3PO episodes as seperate, if related, adventures)

Some behind the scene video with Sam Witwer recording as Darth Maul.  WARNING: It  might spoil the episode(s) a little if you watch it though.

And still not worth it!

If they include the new Ponda Baba, which I've never seen, I might get a creature set. But they probably wouldn't include the extra arms.

IIRC, wasn't it planned for 100 episodes, ratings or not?

It seems ARMP'D is in scale with Jedi Force so I'm guessing that it's just an extension of it.  Maybe I'm wrong on that but that was the impression I got.

It seems they did have some new stuff shown.

A few figures. Naboo fighter. Vader's TIE...it spins!

That means they've done 2  kiddie Vader TIE's and we still got the POTF2 one reissued last year.  :(

They really made the original Ric look pathetic.

Sad news. That means the original 1999 figure's value will plummet on the aftermarket.  :P
