Yeah he's been shafted on the show for a while.  I miss him and Anakin at this point, haha.

Ha! That's as good a reason as any as to why she's not in ROTS!

The QA answer over at RS about the 19 figures today is pretty clear on it being only 19 total figures.  Have we seen most of them, then?  The air has gone completely out of this line.

From our JD Q&A:

Quote
2) Wow, just 19 total Clone Wars figures for 2012? You showed 14 figures in the NYCC slides, does that really mean there are just 5 more figures being added into the mix in Fall 2012? Can you re-check those numbers and be sure you didn't mean 19 new figures PLUS an additional amount of repacked figures? Did the new sculpts in the Movie Heroes cannibalize tooling dollars from Clone Wars or something? Or has the Clone Wars market slowed down that dramaitcally that the line is being cut by around 50%?

* There are a total of 19 single carded Clone Wars Figures planned for 2012. With the release of Episode I in 3D our primary focus is shifting back to the movies. Of course we will continue to support The Clone Wars, but more of our tooling dollars, resources, etc. are being put against new movie figures rather than continuing Saga Legends repacks as we did in 2011.

So yeah - sure sounds like the Movie Heroes stuff did indeed cannibalize Clone Wars tooling dollars like some of us were speculating.

So all you Clone Wars fans - be sure to enjoy those "light-up saber" Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon figures and the rest of the new sculpt TPM Movie Heroes figures since they definitely cost you a chance at more CW basic figures! :P



Have we seen most of them, then? 

NYCC showed 14 of the 19 -

 - 8 REPACKS = Topless Savage, Cad Bane, Mace Windu, Yoda, Chewbacca, AquaDroid, Sno-Koon, Aayla Secura

 - 6 NEW (or at least somewhat new) = Phase II Clone Trooper, Republic Commando Boss, Phase II Commander Cody, Phase II Captain Rex, Season 3 Anakin (minor tweak with new launching accessory), Season 3 Obi-Wan (minor tweaks w/new accessory?)

 - 5 Left to be Announced/Revealed

I'm not feeling the love for Movie Heroes, all of a sudden.  >:(

Meh, you can only blame the idiots that run Hasbro...I almost want to see the movie based swag become an utter failure so they are forced to rethink this dubious marketing strategy.

Those movies are old. 3D is not going to reinvent the wheel. There's just not the "wow" factor that they are going to get from kids into the animated line.

And for like the millionth time, just because you can't afford tooling doesn't mean you can't still give us new figures. Repaint, repaint, repaint.

They could blast out Ziro, another Aurra Sing, more astromechs, and Clone Troopers out the wazoo with practically no new tooling needed at all. I could come up with another 19 "new" figures easily that way.

Sad to think this line's best days are behind it now...

Well, we know one of those has to be Maul. At NYCC, they were tagging this as the year of Maul, and with his return in CW, I would bet he'd have to be one (unless they do a shirtless version of him, too.  :P). We'll see him at ToyFair.

One Q&A reply said  Seperatists are less likely to happen.  Worm Loathsom ruined it for everyone...or whatever excuse.

Krell, Maul is almost guaranteed...

Won't see: Riff Tamson, Adi Gallia, Tarkin or Ackbar (I figure that means no quarren, and no mon calamaris at all).

If season 5 is the last Clone Wars season, I don't expect a turn around in 2013.

I don't think I will be buying any EPI figures after today's release. When the movie flops, after a big initial week and we are stuck with those figures clogging the pegs, it will be a shame Hasbro won't ave as much of my money as they could have.

I am wondering what the fab five left for 2012 are. There are way more than five figures we have already seen in season 4 that I would wan't let alone the twenty or thirty I still am waiting for from seasons 1-3.
