Even Movie Heroes is getting  24 figures, with some 18 announced already.

Target is having a $6.99 sale on Basic Star Wars action figures. Not sure what that means, probably Clone Wars and Legends.

So why does the vintage cardback show CW Obi-Wan starfighter, but the vintage boxed vehicle is Kenobi's ROTS Starfighter. (I'd point out the irony that they are reissuing that vehicle now that they are discontinuing the ROTS "pilot" Kenobi figure from Legends/Vintage, but Hasbro does things like this all the time...)

I suppose a chunk of the new tooling budget went to Movie Heroes. That might be the price of having 3 lines.

Where did they throw out the 19 figures for 2012 tidbit? Was that during the presentation also?

It was post on Rebelscum's live feed during the presentation.

Jedi Force, squeeknies things...movie heroes....everything to get the kids back...yet, CW seems to be an after thought now?

Some more lapses in logic:

Selbulba's pod is a main line release but its pilot is thus far only coming with an exclusive battle pack.

The Naboo fighter is mainline release, but its pilots are initially exclusives, and the fighter's opponent,  The Vulture droid is also an exclusive.

Season 3 Ahsoka not in the CW waves. Why reship a main character?

No ARC trooper reshipping, despite CW Arc being retail gold.

The Blu-Ray 4 packs used mostly current molds, but the 2012 value battle packs will be using stuff from 8 to 12 years ago?

A battle pack saying that Jango Fett battles clone in the Geonosis Arena.

I hope we get the new Battle Droids in this pack.

The way things are going they'll probably use the mold from the Theed Generator playset.

Considering they always target the kids, they downplay the toys based on a weekly cartoon, in favor of a 12 year old movie.

There's also some confusion,  it was heard there'd be 19 CW figures in 2012. 19 new or 19 total, including repacks?

I didn't realize that not only would they add new action feature figures, but they'd DOWNGRADE previous Legends offerings by going to worse older versions.

Lets see, I might get a repacked 30th Super Battle Droid to boost my army, but I'd never pay any real money for a ROTS one. I'm doubting that's a place holder now.

The Jet Pack Clone trooper...a mold that should've been retired permenantly. But hey, it's like getting a ROTS deluxe for only $8!  :P

For future offerings, they'll bring out hunch back ROTJ Luke and screaming Mace Windu (or save that for AOTC' 3D).

These aren't for us, they are for the kids...of 6 to 8 years ago.  ::) 

Also, I really, really don't care what kids want. At all. Just saying.

NOMAD DROIDS was fluff but was better than the previous one.  The pit droids were amusing.

In two weeks, part one of a 4 parter with the Not-Dexter Jettster Jedi...yikes, 4 parts is a good chunk of a 22 episode season.

1256
A new Vader....looong overdue.

Actually, I hear this one will not have a removable helmet. Good.

Panel photos are online.

Looks like movie heroes will be worse than Legends in terms of bad repacks. The ROTS Super Battle Droid...really? (Hopefully a stock photo, like the CW Battle Droid shown).  A Maul that's either new or the Saga Sith training one recolored/retooled. If the photos are accurate, lots of action feature molds that we never wanted to see again.  :P

Some new molds besides Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan...but are they very articulated? Doesn't look like it.

AAT, Sith Infiltrator, Naboo Fighter (Still in Starfighter asst)...no surprises...though the AAT is said to be new. Another Fighter Tank repaint for some reason.

Scant few CW additions through early spring...not surprising. Commando Boss and Phase 2 Rex.

Movie Battle packs are as bad as thought (they dug out the Saga Bespin Escape Chewie). CW one has Cut-Up in training gear, bomb squad clone and Hardcase.

Realistic CW seasons 1-3 1/2 Anakin. Meh.

Vintage boxed V-19....uh...why vintage box an EU item?  ???

Cracken was demoted to Colonel.

Why do the Dewback and droid fighter say 2 of 2 and 1 of 2? Exclusives?

The under the cloth Battle Droids has a game stand...hopefully an Episode 1 battle droid 2-pack is coming. If it's not a two-pack...then  >:(

Looks like Cody has the same gear as the new Rex, but with a Phase 2 helmet.

Cardbacks promoting the battle card game show CW Magna Guard among the mixed movie hero/CW figures, maybe they are bringing it back.

THe Maul on Sith speeder...the one in the Legacy battle pack that TRU can't get rid of even with the occassional $13 sale.  :P

Hasbro still thinks some the 1999 molds hold up well. I do, too...which is why there's no need to buy them again.  ;)

I saw the Geonosis Battle Pack box at Galactic hunter...looks like more terrible molds return! On that box there's a small image for the Rebel Heroes one with what looks like the 2006 Han Solo....yes, the COMM-TECH mold returns!  ::)

The 3D glasses part is a brilliant marketing move, if you have them on, it almost makes this junk look good. (Nothing can make the packaging look good.)

Some Republic Clone Trooper set with what looks like the bomb squad clone, and 2 others, not sure its Clone Wars or not.

The display 501st trooper has a super sized helmet...hope that's not the final product.

I forget they were even making Nom Anor.
