He's not the clone that comes with that new speeder design - they are both the same sculpt, but the deluxe set clone has a red visor and the one on the surf-board has a gray visor. So I think he's something else. Maybe they are going to release a clone w/the surf-board thing that originally came with Vos.

If they have him on display though, I'm surprised there's no mention of him in the slides.

There was a Clone Trooper R7 (or maybe it was Red Leader?) or something that popped up on a WM price list for CW figures. I'm guessing that's the figure. Looks kinda neat, but the board is an odd accessory choice.

I'm wondering if the boards aren't going to turn up in a future episode of Clone Wars where they actually get some use.  Just speculation.  It's not uncommon for Hasbro to get early images of stuff that gets pushed out completely, pushed back, used elsewhere later, or whatnot.  They'd said at one point the Turbo Tank was to play a bigger role and that's why they made it, and then it kind of didn't play a big role in the toon that season.

It's like Ric Olie...  He was to have an expanded role in Episode 1, they got this info and cranked up his production, then poof...  Ric Olie's role was cut to comically short and awkward to a degree.  And we got to watch Ric army build himself at every retailer in the country.

Yep, Clone Trooper 7 ARF is my guess too. Weird that he was not part of the slideshow. I guess he is Wave 4 or beyond?

Wish they had showed at least the next wave out, but I guess we will hear about it before Comic-Con anyway.

Some interesting news out of DewbackPatrol.com:

http://www.dewbackpatrol.com/ToyFairHasbroQA2011.html

"There will be multiple versions of Savage coming out with different outfits.  There will be multiple figures from the last two story arcs [The Night Sisters and The Mortis Trilogy]."

Hell yes.

Hell yes.

I'm with you there, Savage is just such a cool character. It'll be interesting though to see if he gets both the lightsaber and the vibro-axe in the same basic figure release, or if there if each weapon will come with individual sculpts.

He had 2 different outfits in the Nightsisters Trilogy, right? I reckon we'll get a "Dooku's Apprentice" version (w/ armor and lightsaber), and a "Pre-Freakishly Mutated" version.

Well that seems like a no brainer - especially on the Mortis Trilogy. That trilogy opened the doors for a CW 3D-style version of Qui-Gon Jinn and to some degree Darth Vader. I think the father and his two children would also make great looking figures.

As for the Night Sisters Trilogy, the head Sister (I can't recall her name) and Nightsister "Ninjas" (for lack of a better description) would also make excellent figures, as well as open the door for a unique version of Ventress.

Yeah, all of those are a lock.  The Citadel story is figure city, too.  Tarkin, Echo and Five Arc Troopers, Even Piell, and carbonite versions of everybody.

I'm crossing my fingers for new sculpts for both of Asajj's new outfits (revised gray jumpsuit/skirt outfit and Nightsister outfit), but being that she's a female character, I wouldn't be surprised if Hasbro only made the Nightsister outfit, being that she wore it more throughout the arc.

Qui-Gon's also pretty high on my list too, Hasbro can even pull off doing Vader in animated style for a convention exclusive if they choose not to do basic figure format.

From StarWars.com's story on the 2012 packaging...

Quote
Cheregotis: "There will not be a variant for Clone Wars packaging. We always try to keep one brand look for all segments of the property, and in this case, the use of Maul is especially fitting given the introduction of Savage Opress in The Clone Wars and his quest to find Maul."

Hmm...  so Savage is searching for Maul... and Maul is ending up on the CW 2012 packaging.  Anyone else think that's pretty much a guarantee that Savage is going to be finding Darth Maul in Season 4 of the animated series?  Or an animated series Maul finding his way into the line?  :D

Let him rest in peace, I say.

The sucky thing about this reboot is we will probably be back to at least two of the lines sharing the same packaging look, and we all know how careful big box toy section employees are about differentiating between the various sub-lines.

I've really enjoyed having three separate packaging styles for the three lines. You don't get overflow clutter from other pegwarmers.

It's going to be really weird having Maul as the face of TCW toys - he's not even in the show (not yet, at least). I love his character though, and I would love to see this look carried over to realistic figures once TVC is done with.

TWO FULL WAVES FROM THE CITADEL ARC?!! That's craaazy.

Some great figures in there to be sure, but that numbering seems sketchy. I mean, how far off are they going to push Savage Oppress? Not to mention Aayla, Hondo, Commander Jet, etc.

Seems like those waves would put us well beyond SDCC. And the Oppress arc was way before the Citadel.

Good stuff though...
