Muddy AOTC Clones though?  Those are cool, but yeah I mean the wave in general was a good opportunity to play some catch up for the year.  McQuarrie figures are still hard to find, army builders will inevitably sell through...  And some are still hard to find in general (Stormtrooper, honor guard, airborne, etc.) for many people...  But McQuarrie reshipments...  Those would've gone over well.  A whole wave of just the McFigures for the year reshipped?  I'd have much preferred that, and probably ordered a case.

New picture...



Poncho Clone looks much better. Still wish the EU Vanguard had the launcher, but oh well.

Wave 8 includes 12 individually packaged Action Figures, including: 1x Holographic Darth Vader (#3048), 2x Clone Trooper (Red, #3049), 1x Clone Trooper (Poncho, #3050), 2x R2-B1 (#3051), 2x Naboo Soldier (#3052), 2x Pax Bonkik (#3054), 2x Rebel Vanguard Trooper (#3053.) (Subject to change.)

Case assortment seems pretty good, but what's with having boring non-movie E3 Clone repaints at 2 per case, while Poncho Clone is only 1 per case?

Thanks! I still think this wave looks great, better than that sad, sad Endor wave before it.

But that...that's just not right!  >:(

Could this be from the evolutions set? 

According to the info from Hasbro at Celebration IV, that Clone Wars poncho clone is supposed to be a repaint using the Clone Wars 03-50 figure (the one in the Saga Legends line right now).

I knew that he had a removable helmet, yes! yes! yes!

Ah, yes!  Very good to know that this is the Evolutions Clone Trooper (phase 1).

Oh, and BTW, Hasbro is calling this Wave 7.5, not Wave 8.

2x Naboo Soldier (#3052)


Um, pardon me for saying, but are they ******* nuts packing this figure in two per? 

I'm sorry, but my TRU has had a mustard wall for what seems like a year (yeah, it's probably only 8 months, I know) and they won't be going anywhere soon.  Is there some production quota for ****-ass figures?  Really, I'm trying to be kind to Hasbro and for a make-shift lineup they did well, really.  But one clone w/poncho versus two of this?  How ******* stupid do you have to be?

Pardon my language, but come ******* on.  Is there anyone who had a hard time finding the mustard trooper?   >:(

It can't be a cost issue, they're all repaints or existing molds died in gummy-bear blue. Colman, ask for the official lame ass excuse on that case ratio.

I did some searching through Wookieepedia, and much to my consternation I couldn't find the unit name/number for the Phase II Clone Trooper in this wave.  We've gotten a Clone from this unit before in the ROTS Clone Trooper 3-packs, but no ID on the unit.

Curto from RS is reporting that the EU Rebel Vanguard WILL include the launcher, nice to hear that. Hopefully it's a newly tooled one.

So I definitely want Pax Bonkik, and I'm somewhat irrationally excited for the Poncho Clone, probably just because he's from the animated series.

Cub Scout R2 is a maybe and so is Gummi Vader.

Pass on the Rebel and Naboo troopers. And definitely pass on the clone with the asymmetrical dookie-splats; I realize he came from ROTS concept art, but there's a reason he didn't make into the film. ::)

I have this case pre-ordered, its a mixed bag. I could have thought of some better replacements with existing tools for some of the slots. 2006 Rebel Troopers & Naboo soldiers are still warming pegs until this day.

Pax Bonkik is not very accurate but I kinda like him for a generic Rodian. Poncho Clone is great
R2-B1 is a very welcome update. Naboo is a lame figure but he fills and EP1 slot. Its funny how Phantom menace figures still suck after all this time.

I am out on the Gummi Vader, M&M Clone & Rebel Trooper.

I personally would have replaced those 3 slots with:
Grey Clone from Target pack with #41 body
Comic pack Arc Trooper in Red
Sora Bulk Darkside molded in Black robes & soft good cloak

Warming pegs at a store near you!

(I do like the Rodian & Clone.) I went to 3 Targets, 2 Wal-Marts and a TRU all had Rebel Troopers & Naboo trooper. Its sad.

Looks like this is a test shot.  No rocket launcher and no coin.

And I'd like to know what happened to this guys boots and leg armor...  The picture above only had a mud spattering on white legs and boots.  These grey boots and black legs look hideous.

But he does have the rifle, and not the blaster.  A very positive development, IMO.
