So when are we getting a Tactical Droid?  He's appeared in more than a handful of episodes and if you add up his screen time it probably exceeds some of the Jedi we're getting.

I have been wondering the same thing; I am almost positive we will get one this year since this is an ALL NEW droid variety we had never seen before last season. (That I recollect anyway)

There was definitely NOT one pictured at SDCC...

In a Q&A session @ GH this past June, Hasbro said...

"Yes, we will be getting the Tactical Droid out there sometime within the next 12 months."

Since we haven't seen him mentioned for Fall'09, I would guess we will see him in Spring'10 if the current schedule holds... might get a peek at him at Toy Fair '10?

Thanks Jeff, I guess I missed that Q&A, or didn't recall that question.  Very excited to get this one.

Interesting tidbit from the latest round of Hasbro Q&A (courtesy of swcollector.com):

"A new cold weather Obi-Wan is coming shortly in The Clone Wars figure line."

I know many had surmised as much, but it's great to see it confirmed in writing. Definitely looking forward to this one... (Wave 9 maybe?)

Adam P. at 16bit.com confirmed that TODO 360 was intended to be included with Cad Bane but was dropped due to costing issues. Fortunately, they are looking to release him/it somehow in 2010.

Costing issues?  From what little CW figs I've managed to open so far - he seems the most skimped on IMO.  Glad to hear todo will see the light of day though...poor guy.

I'm glad he's coming - just hope he's included with someone else! Maybe ... Cato Parasitti?  ;)

From the latest round of Hasbro Q&A, they confirmed:

R4-P17 is definitely coming out in 2010. No plans for Wat Tambor, Nute Gunray, OOM-224 or more Gunship pilots.

Damn, I would really love an animated Wat!

I do think we'll see a Poggle though, wish they had asked about that.

I can see Barris Offee and Ki-Adi Mundi coming out soon, giving that they've been prominently featured in the Geonosis episode arc. Agen Kolar should be coming out in the "Grievous Intrigue" episode planned for January 1st. He'd also be a good candidate.  

Please, Hasbro?  :-*

I can see those Flame thrower Clones coming, which I'd easily buy for customizing actually. 

I could see a Zombie Clone or something happening too.

I think we will definitely be getting a Barris figure - they have said that the friendship between Ashoka and Barris will continue to develop, so I don't think Hasbro could ignore the character much longer.

There were a lot of cool looking clones in the Geonosis arc that they'll probably make, but I'd actually prefer them to focus first on the cold weather clones and  the cold weather variation on Captain Rex.

I think they pretty much confirmed more cold-weather gear figures like Obi-Wan and Rex in this week's Q&A so that is definitely welcome news for me.

I like the flame troopers idea.

And as for the Zombie Clones ... yeah, with maybe a brain-control worm that can be plugged into the figure's nose!  ;)

Yakface has the following TCW 2010 Vehicle Wave info:

CAD BANE'S STARFIGHTER (XANADU BLOOD)   Wave 1, Asst 5
DROID GUNSHIP (HEAVY MISSILE PLATFORM)   Wave 1, Asst 5
CLONE SWAMP SPEEDER   Wave 2, Asst 5
PLO KOON'S JEDI STARFIGHTER   Wave 2, Asst 5


I cannot, for the life of me, recall WTF a "Droid Gunship" is supposed to look like...
