Why did they make the Research Droids anyway?

I think it's REALLY itneresting that the regular CW line didn't pegwarm for long. They never even saw a sale before they were cleared from shelves here, and Wave 2 and 3 were both pretty scarce, though Wave 3 was much more abundant than 2... Save the SA Clone who of course came and went like the wind.
Wave 2 I never saw in its entirety actually though. Never got a basic Durge for his secondary weapons I wanted. Saw ONE Assajj thankfully and nabbed her. Among the best of the series (Obi, ARC, Sae See, and SA Clone of course are the others I'd label as "great", as well as the Deluxe Durge).
I was impressed, and I could stand a second series of figures and vehicles personally.
I'd take a:
-Soft goods "pilot" Assajj
-Shistavanean Wolfman Jedi
-New Mace (done more to the Cartoons duds)
-New Anakin (done more to the toon duds with removable shirt and cloak)
-SA ARC Trooper with holster, soft goods, and small blaster.
-SA Clone with shoulder RPG, and standard rifle
-Red Battledroid (with bendable knees as well as the rest of the articulation).
-Republic Trooper (just something I'd dig).
-Clone Pilot (using SA body).
-Super Battle Droid (with pivoting right arm added to the Saga sculpt).
-IG-Droid with Swoop and Lance.
-General Obi-Wan Kenobi.
-Yoda (done in Clone Wars garb).
-Padme (Snow gear)
-Capt. Typho (Snow Gear)
-Retooled Spider Droid
And for vehicles I'd take:
-Clone Starfighter with SA CLone Pilot Pack-in.
-Assajj's Fan Fighter with Pilot Assajj
-SA Clone with Speederbike (retool the bike to be smaller and sturdier, and the trooper's hip joints so he can ride it but still be useful off it)
-Obi-Wan with bike.
-Geonosian Fighter with Droid Pilot.
A long list, but this series was just that good... I'd take some new things from it for sure.
Great list, Jesse!
I'd also like some more non-animated Clone Wars figures. I think this was the most under-utilized line of figures we've ever seen. We really should have gotten more army builders with less main characters.
General Grievous as a Preview Figure?
Not to sure about having core charcters as sneak peek!
Well, Jango Fett was a preview figure. It's not unprecedented. I think Grievous will wind up filling a similar role to that of Jango Fett.
