Clone Wars Figure Rumors/Speculation
« on: September 20, 2006, 11:25 AM »
I must have missed this last week (posted on Friday the way it looks), but over at the Galactic Hunter Blog they have a few rumors about a possible (large) action figure line accompanying the upcoming Clone Wars 3D cartoon.  Grain of salt and all of that, but I just thought I'd pass it along here in case anyone else had missed it like I did.  Sounds interesting.

There may be something to that especially if AP generated the rumor. :-\

The indications from Hasbro at Comic Con are that they would be interested in supporting the new Clone Wars cartoon.  But it seems like we're not going to see the cartoon until either late 2007 or early 2008, and obviously the line will be the same way.

Like other years when they had the cartoon I bet it will be April/May, then by Nov, they will release DVD for the cartoon and come out with figures at the same time.

Oh my.  Forty figures right off the bat?  Plus 2 preview waves before it?  Better hope the show is actually good!  That just seems like a high number for a new line.  Then again they jam about 80 figures a year at us anyways.   I knew the live action show was not to be ready until the end of the decade (if it truly happens).  But now the animated line is not until 07-08?  That seems like a long time away but I guess it really is not.  No wonder they need the multi-media event next year with the video game and all.

The amount of toys sounds right for a show that will run for a full season, and then repeat all year long.  I have faith in this show, seeing how well the CW cartoons were done.  It'll be a good way to keep new stuff on the pegs.  The real question is, will they be "real" looking or stylized to match the 3D animation.  From what I've heard, the show will be very stylized and look more like a 3D version of the cartoon, as opposed to trying to make the characters look like their movie counterparts.

Maybe well finally get some non-droid Seperatist armies!

Interesting rumors for sure, but a 40 figure blitz in a few waves seems incredibly excessive and out of sync with past precedant...  Of course not to say that it would be impossible either...  I suppose without a film they're left latching onto the TV series as their great hope for success...

It's interesting anyway though, something to look forward to I guess.  If it's realistic sculpts I'm pretty game for it either way it goes.  I don't dig animated sculpts.

40 figures though sounds like it would be a rough go on the wallet...  Though I've always bailed on buying in bulk for the midnight madness for the past 2 films...  And it paid off.

Speaking of, I wonder if there could/will be a "big event" to surround the release of these?  I'd assume so but will it draw like the film releases have in the past years?  Eh, just food for thought.

Oh, my!!  ;D

Sorry, sounded too much like Wizard of Oz to resist. It'd be interesting to see what comes of this.

When's the show come out. I think it was '08 or was that the live action?  ???
If the show is realistic instead of the first one, I'll probally army build the army builders.

Looking forward to more Clone Wars. I like the imaginative qualities being separated from the line that's supposed to be accurate.

Clone Wars 3D is currently scheduled to come on Fall 2007.  They will have the first previews at Celebration 4.  Hopefully, they'll hit the net a few hours later.

If the series is good, count me in for a full set, 40 or no.

But if the series is anything like the phantom menace (the kids wanted to watch that last night, uggg), the toys better rock hard.
