Seems like a few newbies making the rounds in deluxe too, which could expand some.

The SBD better be a new SA version!

It can be the old sculpt with added knee and ankle articulation at least.

Ball-jointed hips would be a plus.

Way to spoil that Maul's a cyborg!  :P

The first Fox was a kitbash that didn't look right, IIRC. So odds are this is a new one.

I think it is all nineteen.  I am still amazed at this, but maybe this is to get them until the holiday time.  Gotta hope for some exclusives.

Anakin Skywalker
Clone Trooper (Phase II)
Savage Opress (shirtless)
Cad Bane w/TODO 360
Yoda
Plo Koon (Cold Weather Gear)
Clone Commander Cody
Mace Windu
Chewbacca
Aqua Droid
CW? Ahsoka Scuba Gear
CW? Aayla Secura
CW? Obi-Wan Kenobi
CW? Clone Commando Boss
CW? Captain Rex
CW? Commander Wolffe (Phase II)
CW? Commander Fox
CW? Cyborg Maul
CW? Super Battle Droid

Yep, you're right...I missed the SBD in my count. That is 19 individually carded figures alright. Krell is totally MIA.

I can't see them throwing him into a BP after all the bad noise they made about no newly tooled figures in those things.

Mailaway?!?!  :D

After Sgt. Brick they said no more CW mail-aways. Even though they had to make more Bricks to satisfy demand.  :P

If we don't get 100,000 forms in the mail within 2 months, it's a flop! I wonder if the current mail-in Fett won't be considered a flop because after they nixed the online version there's so few order forms to be found at a retail for folks to use.

After watching The Box, I couldn't help but wish for one of those Target Exclusive gift sets designed to look like the Box and containing all of the characters from the episode.  Sure it would run at least $100 but it should would be cool looking.  Too bad Hasbro seems intent on ignoring CW.

The Super Battle Droid is new, SWEET!

Edit It's a training simulator Super Battle Droid from the Clone Cadets episode, repaint of the same old sculpt..... no new articulation. :(

Cool, just saw the pics over at 'Scum...this is fine by me. At least it's not another stinking repack.

Wonder why they didn't show Fox?

Wait, so Hasbro used up one of the only 19 slots for TCW with a repaint of a crappy SBD...?

Not. Cool.

Well, on the bright side, outside of Aayla and possibly Commander Fox, the rest of the figures this year will be all new.

Sigh, I know...it's a stretch.

Esepcially since they could've stuck it a battle pack with Kamino training armor Droidbait and Fives or whoever. I mean, it's odd to make a training target when the squad isn't done yet.

There's a few easy options for CW battlepacks with little to no new tooling, but they sculpt new Episode 1 and ESB figures for them instead.

Packaged photos of the new Commander Fox over at JTA...check 'em out!

Totally re-used tooling from what I can tell, a mash-up of recent Rex and Cody parts, painted up very red.

Despite the presumed lack or articulation, he's not too bad, IMHO. If they would continue to recycle tooling in new and imaginative ways, as I have always said they should, they could afford to put out more than 19 figures a year for this line. 

One new figure in a wave though? Eesh.

I'm a little disappointed, since I was hoping that Fox would be a repaint of Cody, not Rex.  That way, we could have another SA clone for the collection.  Also, they messed up the paint on the chin of his helmet: there should be a white patch there.

(Sorry to be negative.)

Good catch, I hadn't noticed that on first glance.
