Oh yeah, that thing I've NEVER seen on the actual show.

It was in Revenge of the Sith, and I'm sure it'll be showing up in the show soon.

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


Wow - if Hasbro turns out making Plo Koon's starfighter, won't that mean they would have to give the current figure the SA treatment + a soft-good's skirt? That 2008 TCW Plo Koon WILL NOT for the life of it be able to sit in that fighter properly.

over on the RS.com main page there is an image of Cad Bane in Clone gear - yes please.  I am also liking Snow Rex, and I still don't have a Magna Guard so I will possibly grab him too.

Interesting... even though he was apparently dropped from Wave 13, if he made it that far (photo on the back of a cardback) I'm sure they'll find a way to get him out at some point.

Looky looky!

There's that disguised Bane! I like the undisguised left hand, and the backpack is a nice touch. I'm assuming the figure will include a helmet.

I'm really confused as to why they dropped him from this wave.

I mean, it's not like the wave is already made up of 12 new figures - the wave went from five new figures to four new figures.  >:(

I can't say enough how much I HATE how Hasbro is setting up their cases.

Sweet - that is a nice looking figure.  I do hope it comes with a Helmet though.   :-\

Internet scuttlebutt says he was dropped due to some manufacturing issue... but that hasn't been confirmed by Hasbro.  All they said at Toy Fair was that they were pretty sure he wouldn't make Wave 13 but would be released eventually.

Yeah, that photo array has me totally confused. Rex is listed as both TCW 50 and TCW 51. Appears to be a mix of cards...

I love the Bane figure, would have liked to have seen that included in the next wave.

How far down the line are they going to stick him though? He was not pictured with Wave 4 either.

I have to wonder if he was snatched up to be a store exclusive somewhere.

Target hasn't had an individually carded figure in a while (I think the last one was Commander Fox) so they could be picking it up for that.

Same goes with WalMart - their last individually carded figure was the 501st Clonetrooper.

Since we already know that TRU is getting the Nikto Guard, I wouldn't be surprised if Target and/or WalMart were looking for a more low-end exclusive to have to coincide with the new "Shadow of the Dark Side" line launch.

I was pleased to see Aurra Sing is getting a figure - I had made a post about wanting her in this thread a while ago! I hope Hasbro really racks up on Jedi characters though: Adi Gallia, Ki-Adi Mundi, Bariss Offee, Agen Kolar... Any others I missed?

Season 2 Finale SPOILER WARNING - proceed at your own risk.  :-X

Yeah, I'm guessing that this guy is a definite figure at some point... wouldn't surprise me if they've already got him slotted in one of the Fall waves.  ;)
