I am not disappointed at all by less animated CW stuff, in fact I welcome it. It means more realistic!

ures. The possible slowdown can also be part of the larger conversion plan to go all realistic with CW long term. Some may see this as a stretch but look at the Joe Renegades figures, they are made to be realistic but the design is based on the animated show. When Hasbro gets on a product idea/theme they usually carry it across several lines. (GH, RP, Scales)

It's a stretch.  :) Renegades figures is a safer bet than making them animated. All cable/dish packages probably carry Cartoon Network. Do they carry The Hub? Does anyone watch the Hub? Remember those animated Wolverine and the X-Men figures that died at retail, the Marshalls in my area has them for $1.00 each and they still sit there.  Also, GI JOE collectors vs. Star Wars collectors = a pond vs. a sea. If GI JOE had a huge market, they'd be making Renegades  figure in animated style. GI JOE is a second tier line at this point.

For those with Meijer stores in their area, this week Star Wars figures are $6.50...ad showns Clone Wars Grievous. I haven't been to the store yet to see what's what. I suspect vintage probably isn't included.

The Force Unleashed 2 will probably fill up some slots. I had forgotten they'd said those were coming in 2012.

 I mean, who besides us wants Satipo?

Customizers.

A lot of Indy product was bought by people for that reason. Not enough, obviously.

The series seems incomplete without a non-ceremonial Belloq and Donovan.

I thought they hinted months ago in a q&a repsonse that there wouldn't be  a whole lot of new Clone Wars offerings in 2011.

Figures, I recently got the dark-skinned Rebel Endor Soldier from Saga. Hopefully it's not the same head.

Remember when they started, there were a few 2 packs of clones? Why'd they stop that?

Next you'll be complaining the big wheel in the mini wheel bike doesn't turn.  ;)

It's hard to accept the small Republic Shuttle fighter as a space item...maybe an air speeder. Like the ISP thing from Kenner's Mini-rig...couldn't really picture it participating in the Death Star Battle. Nope. But the INT one that fit in the AT-AT, I could buy that. (I wish they'd done an update on that over the speeder bike with last year's AT-AT...dropping a speeder bike from a hundred feet in the air?)

Too bad an escape pod, even a small one, isn't "action oriented" enough for them to make.

The vehicles shown here in the Toy Fair gallery are hilarious. Good custom fodder for some people, maybe.

I suppose they include a barely articulated Captain America like the Iron Man series had barely poseable driver figures. I don't understand that. Is it cheaper to make a different, less poseable mold than just reusing the ones in the carded series? Must be.

Word is Zarana is a SDCC exclusive.  ::)
 
Renegades Firefly was shown, but having a hard time accessing the picture. Snake-Eyes was too, but haven't seen it yet.

Some 30th anniversary figure pics were released.

I was wondering that, too.

They'd sell like hot cakes if they shipped the Mando and ARC sets in real quantities. I saw the Mando one once, the ARC one maybe 3 times.

Press pic at starwars.com make Logray look creepy. AND HE'S PHASE ONE STYLE, TOO. That's right, no animated "Ewoks" beard. LOL.

The entire cockpit area seems to fold open, too. Haven't seen any pics of it open, though.

Starwars.com has official Hasbro photos of them all.

Interesting lot. It's nice to see some non-speeder bike items. They went overboard on blasters on a few of them, though. They have a mini-rig feel, in ways both good and bad (Grievous's mini wheel bike is almost like a kiddie ride).
