It was brought to my attention that Clone Trooper Jek is being rumored/rumbled to be in a possible multi-pack with other Troopers from the original episode of the Clone Wars series (Commander Thire's picture has surfaced as well).  Click the thumbnail above there to see a clearer image of Jek, and with his appropriate brain bucket.

Here are a couple other upcoming Troopers and Commanders loose...



First up seems like Commander Thire (but I forget my Clone names so I could be wrong)

The good Twi'Lek killer, Commander Bly.

We got a nice loose shot of Captain Argyus with and without his helmet.



Head on out to the front page to check it out.

New BP rumors from Yakface...

- Assault on Grievious Lair
- Mace Windu & Clone Troopers

Mace/Troopers makes sense like the Obi/Yoda sets, also matched up with that TRU Commander Ponds figures that surfaced a while back.

Also, that Assault on Grievous lair would be the perfect place for little fishy Nahdar Vebb! :)

Those images really look promising from a character/figure design. I hope that he has a fairly prominent role next season and not just a brief one or two episode arc.

Yeah, I'm all in for a CW Bossk as well - if/when they make him.  Like Jayson mentioned, I hope he has a fairly big role and not just a quick cameo.  I'm always in for more OT characters appearing in CW, as long as it makes sense.

I'm pretty much done with the animated figs, but does Bossk even speak?  I must say that I was a little let down when I heard Plo Koon speak.  Just kinda ruined his character for me like if you heard Snake Eyes talk.

IIRC doesn't he kind of hiss in ESB?  Hopefully they'll have his language be a derivation on that and then use subtitles.

I hope so as well. Bossk is one of my favorite characters and I'd hate to see him ruined by the cartoon. However, Gha Nachkt (the guy who gave R2 to Grievous) was a Trandoshan and he was speaking so I wouldn't be surprised if Bossk suddenly speaks Basic.  :-\

I'd prefer if Bossk spoke in the same "hissing" manner we heard in ESB as well (with subtitles).  Like others have mentioned, it would just be strange if he was all of a sudden speaking basic/English - probably with some sort of an accent :).

The fact that the show is on Cartoon Network and for kids makes me think if he has any quantity of lines he'll speak basic so little 5 year olds don't have to read it. We can all know he doesn't really speak basic and that he's hissing but it was translated for the kiddies. I think I'll still like Bossk and he won't be ruined.

Why can't he speak basic? I speak English and some Spanish.  My wife speaks Emglish and some Gealic...people, and aliens, have the intelligence to speak more than one language.  Y'know, Sci-fi and fantasy are designed to nurture imagination, not stifle it.

I think the point is the imagination aspect of it.  Basically, whether we admit it or not, we've all conceived the Star Wars Universe in our heads based on the movies, books we've read, etc.  That's why when something comes along that doesn't agree with, or seems out of place with, the universe we've individually created, we don't like it.  So George Lucas could decide Bossk has the voice of Duane Chapman (Dog the Bounty Hunter), but that won't necessarily jive for some.  Essentially the further the Star Wars universe is fleshed out in movies, books, comics, games, etc, the less there is to imagine on our own...

So, sure, they could have him speaking basic, which will be fine to a lot of people (as David mentioned there is already a Trandoshan that does).
