I always thought the "19 Clone Wars Figures" referred to the number of NEW Clone Wars figures for 2012.
I'm totally STUNNED that it's only 19 total.
How is that even possible? Could it be because there is SO MUCH Shadows of the Dark Side product in the pipeline still, that they (Hasbro) is not willing to take back, they're going to just let that product float the line for a bit?
I guess anything is possible when out-of-the-blue, WalMarts start to get Pre Vizla/Flamethrower Clone cases over a year after they originally came out.
I originally wasn't thrilled with the Clone Wars animated line, now I really like it, but this totally seems to me that they are trying to kill it.
I almost wish they had just gone with realistic styling from the beginning, at least then there wouldn't be a "end" to the line, they could continue to slot in characters from the 3D Animated CW Series from now until eternity. Almost like how, six year later, we're STILL getting figures based on the 2D Clone Wars series (I'm looking at you
ARC Trooper Commander w/Phase II ammo belt and helmet).
I guess we all knew that the line wasn't going to go on in tandem for ever, I just didn't think it would be until AFTER the five seasons had run their course...
