All I know is for $9 or more the current vintage one is lame. I never see corrected ones, only unibrow ones.

Time for ball jointed wrists, too.

Years (feels like it) later I finally get Bom Vidom. Reshipped one, I guess. They had three, so I missed 3 cases of new figures except him and trench coat Han Solo, plus a Jango reshipped. I should be glad that no one has any good taste, and leaves cantina aliens behind.  :P

Why the heck didn't they stun Krell immediately.  You can stun first and ask questions later! A lot of clone died taking him down.

The odd thing was the remaining Umbarrans heading to the airbase, yet, at the was like they never came, so the execution seemed unneeded (but deserved).

Krell acted like he hadn't officially hooked up with the Sith, but there's that matter of him being put in Sidious must've been aware of Krell's leanings.

Good arc, arguably an episode too long. Arguably. I mean, really, the Mon Cal arc seemed longer and it was 3 episodes.

One thing, they keep killing off antagonists in their debuts. In some cases that's good, in some others...untapped potential wasted.

I'm far more likely to get a boring senator-type figure if they are well articulated. Though I do understand that aesthetically, trying to get soft goods to look good at 3 3/4" scale isn't easy.

That Battledroid's backpack looks too big. I'm sure we'll see variations of that figure...NOT SOON. I doubt its wrists swivel, that's a feature reserved for Clone Wars fire fighter droids that were barely available at retail. It looks like shoulder articulation is less than that of the Arena 2-pack droids, but hard to tell for sure.

One of Galactic Hunter's questions to Hasbro

At Comic-Con, we asked for an update about the "Mini-Rigs" of Clone Wars Boba Fett's Speeder Bike and the mini Republic Attack Shuttle, and we were assured they were coming. No new assortments have been listed, and no news has appeared-- can we get an update on these two?

At New York Comic-Con we confirmed that these vehicles were no longer in the line

Yeah...uh...thanks for that update, Hasbro.  ::)

A casual collector like me has lost most of my interest in CW toys, due to short changing figures on articulation and of course, not being able to find some new figures. Add to that the lack of new characters...

The Citadel arc might see...what Echo and Fives in toy form...MAYBE. What happened to "we have figures planned from the Mortis trilogy"? Where are they? Was it all in our heads like the storyline?

These 2011 battle packs had promise that we'd see some characters in similar packs in it's just the one pack? Really? Not even more repaints?

Will any of the Mon Calamari storyline make it to toy form in 2012? Seems unlikely now.

1. GO AHEAD AND BUY FROM OVERSEAS. It's a long wait.

2. Tough cookies if you can't find them now.

Is there ever any good news from the responses?

Bummers at the Scummer:

There were never more than 5 deleted scene figures planned for the line. Luke, Leia, Lando, Rebel Pilot and Colonel Cracken.

Those hoping for the old woman Rebel Pilot can cry now. Ha.

At NYCC, you said there would only be 19 figures from The Clone Wars. Did you mean 19 new ones, or 19 overall, or have we just been misinformed? Will we be seeing more mini-rigs and battle packs next year if this is the case?

There are 19 total single carded Clone Wars animated figures planned for 2012. There are also 4 Clone Wars themed "mini-rig" figure & vehicle packs and 1 Clone Wars themed Battle pack planned for 2012.


Yeah, TNT is one of the  foreign only releases that were special because they were obnoxious, old and hard to get.  New and obnoxious plus pricey exclusive = junk.

« on: November 10, 2011, 11:11 PM » has carded pictures of wave 1.

ROTS Quick Draw Clone Trooper is back...actually it's the Shock Trooper from Revenge of the Child Birthing

No extra shoulder armor this time.

Yes, the Battle Droid is the old AOTC deluxe C-3PO "droid factory" mold, with the removable head, arms and legs. Only one per card now but with the Clone Wars battle droid spring action launcher. (why isn't there a barf emoticon?)

Battle Droid has CIS symbol on his game card, but Super Battle droid and Destroyer Droid have some other symbol I'm not familiar with.

Everything else is what was expected (bad molds except for Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon, who get spring-action grapple launchers). Carded Jar Jar but no loose image. No other wave 2 shown.

Pictures at and yes, it's shirtless freaking Savage...all hopes that they used the wrong image at the slide show are dashed.


Can't tell which Cad Bane it is, but Todo is nowhere visible (probably not included) and he has new guns?

Naboo Royal Guard Character Debut.

Hasbro doesn't even remember what it has  made anymore.

Somehow I don't think they are ready to kill Rex yet.

Not all Umbarans are seperatists. There was an Umbaran senator in season 2 or 3, IIRC, that was pro-Republic. Maybe his murder pushed them away from the Republic?

The whole thing is messy. We had Tikkes on the Seperatist council, then in season4 here the Quarren just decide to join the Seperatists...briefly. Umm....what?

Saw the clone cannon at a Meijer last week. First time I've seen one outside of Toys R Us.

Target has CW figures on sale this week, around $7.

Or Dinty Moore, since the Rex is stewing with anger.  :D

It was cool to seen some superiour tech kicking the Republic's butt. So much of the Droid army's weapons are easily taken out. The centipede machines were bit video gamey, but not too bad.

I'm surprised they have any AT-RT's left, they seem like death traps and literally walking targets.

I noticed at Target, the current wave is shipping, all older repacks, but without the secret weapons. So Snow Troopers and Jango Fett and Battle Droid 2-packs with no frills. Just a heads up for packaging variant collectors and those who might be disappointed if they were expecting extra guns.
