So...let's talk about all that SDCC Clone Wars love!

(crickets)

Ummm...they showed a red battle droid?

Yes, some doofus probably just stuck the MH figure in the wrong cabinet. Or maybe that is the mysterious 19th carded TCW figure for 2012.

Um, I saw a nice shot of Fox's back?

They brought the Republic Sub too. Woo hoo!

Please post here if anyone comes across anything noteworthy for this line the next few days.

Hey, it could happen!

General Krell, Spider-body Maul, the rest of Domino Squad, Captain Tarkin, Sugi, Dengar, Duchess Satine, Rako Hardeen & Admiral Trench are all coming by the end of the year!















(just kidding - figure #19 is just a solid block of plastic on a Darth Maul cardback and it's called "Cargo Bay Storage Box")

So...as I speculated, some Hasbro oaf just put the $%^&* Movie Heroes Battle Droid in the Clone Wars section by accident. Christ, even their employees can't tell them apart.

So yeah, we got absolutely nothing to talk about. It's be laughable if it weren't so pathetic. They couldn't even rustle up a Republic Dropship to show off with the Class I stuff. Best they could do was the sub and recon fighter, which I already have 3 of already.  ::)

meh.

When I was looking through the pics I thought the exact same thing.

To be fair to the Hasbro people at the show, the important people don't set it up...  They have schlubs do it, probably locals who work for the retail stocking aspect of the Hasbro team.  They're as clueless about the line as any other non-fan...  It's happened at Toy Fair too, and other shows.

Well, now it's onto hoping for C6 to have some Clone Wars news I guess.

If nothing, I'd say that line's maybe kaput.  :-\

Other than things that were put out by accident then quickly pulled back there isn't any new TVC stuff on display either. No need to whine about the lack of CW stuff until after the presentation.

Yeah, I will miss this line, I have already started moving through the 5 stages of Grieving:

1) Denial: "The line's fine...they're just taking a break for a few months...reduced articulation is just a temporary thing"

2) Anger: "Those bastards! They're doing everything thing they can to kill this sweet, innocent line of toys!I'll burn Hasbro to cinders with my telepathic fury!"

3) Bargaining: "If only I had bought that Republic Attack Shuttle at full price instead of waiting for the 75% off clearance! I could have army built those Yularens! I could have done more!"

4) Depression: "I will never love another toy line again...oh, the agony of loss. Never to see Duchess Satine represented in 3 and 3/4 inch form...I am awash in sadness."

5) Acceptance: "Hmm, that new Hobbit line doesn't look half bad."

 ;D

So let it be written, so let it be done.   :-*

WTF, Hasbro?

Pete - what did you think? Has the Fat Lady sung on our line?

Have people started immolating themselves at other sites over the apparent cancellation of Krell?

Could those questions at the Q&A have been any lamer? Who were those plants schmoes?

I think it was more "playing to your audience".

Seemed like they knew the bulk of the SDCC crowd was more interested in the Vintage/Droid Factory stuff, so they went with that and saved the CW/MH for Celebration 6 maybe?

I don't think the fat lady is singing for your line just yet...  but if the Celebration 6 presentation comes and goes with nothing new for CW shown, then yeah - dead.

I'd agree...  A general sense around the show floor was it was done and realistic was more the direction, however I think it'll continue in some form.  Maybe limited, but something.

Hooray/Dang!  :-\

That Spider Maul rumor was shortlived but thrilling.

If this IS the end, it might be the thing that actually gets me into customizing, big-time.
