and where did you get Shaak Ti from? I thought Anakin knocked her off when he attacked the Jedi Temple?

Shaak Ti is going to be in Force Unleashed, so hopefully there will be a new figure of her from the game...

Yeah, you can read about how Shaak Ti ties into the game's story at the game's Official Site.  Here's a snippit:

"Shaak Ti was later able to escape Order 66, despite being in the Jedi Temple at the time of Darth Vader's attack. She fled Coruscant and traveled from world to world until finally landing on Felucia. Along the way, Shaak Ti found an orphaned Maris Brood and immediately sensed through the Force that Brood was a lost soul living on the edge of the dark side. Once on Felucia, Shaak Ti trained Maris Brood and the local Force-sensitive Felucians for an inevitable confrontation with the Dark Lord of the Sith."

What about the Clone Wars figures? and where did you get Shaak Ti from? I thought Anakin knocked her off when he attacked the Jedi Temple?

What, you want me to plan out AN ENTIRE YEAR?  WTF?!??!

As for Shaak Ti, check out The Force Unleashed - Characters.  The information's out there provided you actually look.

That painting of her is so damn hot.  I really hope we get a whole new sculpt for her based off of that.

So they scripted two death scenes for her in ROTS and filmed at least one of them and yet Shaak Ti survives to make the video game? She is strong in the Force for sure.  :D

The one thing about Shaak Ti surviving that irks me is that I think it contradicts the Revenge Of The Sith  novelization.  In that I'm fairly certain that Vader kills her in the Jedi Temple.

The thing that Irks me is that her death scene by Grevious made perfect plot sense, yet it was cut.

Are you kidding?  The ensuing baseball sign exchange between Obi-Wan and Anakin was ridiculous.  I can totally understand why that was cut.

4-Inches is saying the figure the Mustafar Lava Droid replaced in the 2008 Wave 1 was Stass Allie.

Works for me. We'll prolly get Stass again somewhere down the line, I'd rather have the Lava Droid.

I'd be glad to see Stass Allie in the basic lineup . Hopefully she will have a decent sculpt and no weird eyes, or rereleased with a BARC.

Hmmm, they're now saying she's in the AOTC Wave next year, not the Clone Wars line.

I am glad she got bumped for the droid, cooler figure in my book.

I'm glad we're getting a new Stass and a new Lava Droid, we were in need of both, especially a new Stass. Great news!
