New "rumors" from Scum:

The Clone Wars
There's another obscure Jedi that will be featured in several episodes as part of a longer story arc. Sounds like a good "kid-focused" figure here, although still no word on the identity of said Jedi...

Our spies are reporting that there will be 45 new figures next year! 36 basic figures, and 9 others mixed into battle packs, exclusives, pack-ins...you get the idea. There might be a few more, possibly by way of repaints or kit-bashed figures. At the end of the day, there should be a really good representation of the series as a whole.

Some of the early figures are said to be getting additional attention, by way of new deco changes and added articulation. General Grievous, Anakin Skywalker, and other main characters are said to be revisited with this in mind, although this is still mainly a kid-focused toy line.

While the details are still fuzzy on these next items, it sounds like there might be a Dwarf Spider Droid in the works, as well as a "1138" character?

And do you have all of your Commander Cody variants? Here's a rundown of the various changes for you carded completists out there:

Blue Card, Clean Body, With Scar
Blue Card, Clean Body, No Scar
Blue Card, Dirty Body, With Scar
Black Card, Clean Body, With Scar
Black Card, Clean Body, No Scar
Black Card, Dirty Body, With Scar
Black Card, Dirty Body, No Scar

The 1138 character is no doubt Commander Bacara.

Just throwing this out there, but there is also mention of a "1138" Battle Droid in The Clone Wars: The Visual Guide (which I'm getting quite a bit of mileage out of today for some reason).  Apparently BD 1138 encounters something that screws his programming up and he has wacky misadventures or something.  I don't know what differentiates him from other BDs, but there you go. :)

So yeah, it's either a Clone Commander or another Battle Droid.   ???

 Super Vulture Droid (This is no doubt the Hyena Droid Bomber.)

This is it in Lego form.

$30?  Sounds interesting, and it could be to-scale...  I just got a scale Vulture droid, and they ain't that dinky Hasbro think for sure, but an EU larger "bomber" sounds pretty neat to me.  Makes sense in line with other Sep droids having just larger versions of themselves.

I like the nod to the TIE Bomber with the two pods (although they look asymmetrical).  I'm pretty excited how LEGO is fleshing out the armies of the Republic(AT-TE, AT-AP, Fighter Tank) and CIS (Homing Spider droid, IG Tank, Snail Tank, Hyena Bomber).

Could be kind of cool, and its nice to see another new ship on the way regardless.  I'm guessing this is likely in the $20-ish starfighter line, as BBTS usually has the "new" ships from that line priced closer to $30, but we'll see.

They also have the MagnaGuard Fighter listed, but we already knew about it coming.

I wonder if that 1138 droid is a Battle Droid or maybe it's the 4 legged gonk?

The others are kind of predictable. 

Luminara is prominently featured in the episode that debuts this friday. 

I imagine that the Clone Pilot might be Matchstick or one of the other Ghost Squadron pilots.

As for Obi-Wan?  Maybe it's a version with softgoods like the Anakin that's in the B'omarr Monastery battle pack.

I'm hoping for that as well.

Hasbro confirms the Droid Commando for next year!

http://jediinsider.com/index.php?catid=8&itemid=11446

JI: I just recently watched the Clone Wars episode "Rookies", and was introduced to the new Droid Commandos, I was just wondering if there was the possibility of a Droid Commando figure? I would just like to know, so I have something to look forward to. This question is from JI reader Alpha77.

Hasbro: Yes indeed, you can look forward to a Droid Commando in the Clone Wars figure line-up next year.

SWEET!  ;D
