Isn't there supposed to be the regular TAC-style line running concurrently with the Clone Wars line?
I was under the impression that the Clone Wars stuff was going to be completely separate from the Star Wars Saga collection. Just like Saga Legends was separate from TAC in 2007. So there should be some movie-based waves coming out at the same time as the Clone Wars stuff. Perhaps I misread/misinterpreted some of the Q&A answers from a while back...
Hopefully we will see this wave at Toy Fair and perhaps it might even be the first wave featuring the Droid Factory BAF concept.
So I re-watched all of the Clone Wars last night.
Nelvaan Warrior (mutated and not) (A mutated one would be HUGE!)
Skakoan Techno Union Scientist
The mutated Nelvaan Warriors were huge and unless they made a deluxe figure (which I don't see happening) these aren't ever getting made. Perhaps an unmutated warrior might get made, but I doubt it. The Skakoan Scientists were nothing more than color variations of Wat Tambor, if they were to ever make these guys to go with the Nelvaan Warriors then it would just be a repaint of the Wat Tambor figure.
San Hill and the other Muuns
Well, San Hill we already got as part of the Geonosis War Room Screen Scene. Perhaps the figure could LOOK better, but otherwise, there's really no need to do him again. In addition, the other Muuns with San Hill are all dressed relatively the same. Check out this image of them being lead off:
Not exactly exciting IMHO. Same thing goes with the Neimodian, basically he looked like Nute Gunray with blue/gray clothes as opposed to Nute's typical Red/Yellow/Orange attire. So again, if they made this figure it would just be a repaint of Nute.
Gooey unarmored Durge
Ok - this revelation about Durge in the Cartoon was one of the weakest parts. I am thankful that instead of another battle between Durge and Obi-Wan, we got the extended Volume 1 Episode 20 with the Jedi facing off against Grievous. Since we're talking about Animated Clone Wars figures done in the realistic style, I'm afraid that the closest you might get to this is battle damaged Durge w/his helmet removed as seen in issue 3 of the Obsession comic series.
Jedi Sha'a Gi
Jedi Daakman Barrek
Jedi Tarr Seirr
Ok - so Barrek is only seen in a blurry hologram. Sha'a Gi is the Jedi Padawan that gives into fear and Tarr Seirr is the Cerean Jedi. I guess in terms of adding them to the ranks of the Jedi, having figures of them would be cool. But none of these characters are overly exciting in terms of design.
I had forgotten that they had made that Whiphid Jedi in Volume 1 Episode 20, K'Kruhk. They even say that the other Jedi are dead yet K'Kruhk has shown up in the Dark Times comic and in the Legacy comic. So now of course, they've modified the details around the Battle of Hypori to indicate that K'Kruhk was THOUGHT to have been dead. Ok, fine. I have no doubt that we will eventually get a K'Kruhk figure. Hopefully though, the figure will be based on a design of him from the Dark Horse Comics - completely with Straw Hat.
Jedi Nem Bees (we don't see him in the cartoon in Jedi attire, but they could still make it with it.)
Nem Bees comes from the "What's the Story" feature on StarWars.com. If they were going to give us a Jedi Nem Bees figure, hopefully it will be him in his Jedi Attire. As he appeared in the cartoon is nothing more than a Max Reebo figure. The Kon'me are interesting design, and again were part of the "What's the Story" feature, since they were only ever featured for a split second fighting off Seperatist forces. The design when translated into the movie-style figures might end up looking like a poor-man's Arbiter (from Halo) which would be okay I guess but might cause some problems.
Battle Droid with speeder sub
This design would definitely be welcome, you need something for Kit Fisto, the Scuba Clones and the Mon Calamari to fight against! The Manta Sub-fighters are also pretty cool, might make for a neat battle-pack at some point. Manta sub-fighter, 2 mini-subs w/battle droids, shirtless Kit Fisto.
Sidious w/ Hologram Walker
This design borrowed from the appearance in The Phantom Menace. I have no doubt that we will eventually see this figure get made. Personally I would prefer a light-up feature over a wind-up walking feature, but I'd be willing to bet that Hasbro tries the walking feature route.
Phase 2 Captain Fordo
I'd rather see them give us a better Captain Fordo in the Phase 1 ARC-Trooper armor before going the Phase 2 route, but since they already have a good Phase 1 ARC Trooper figure, it would be cool if they gave us a Captain Fordo figure that could easily switch between Phase 1 and Phase 2 versions. Perferably with a soft-goods kama.
So in the end, I still maintain that if that list is indeed made, the majority of the prominent
designs from the series will be covered. Sure there are some stragglers, but those worth making (K'Kruhk and Holo Sidious on Hologram Walker) appeared elsewhere and are likely to be made at some point.
