Unfortunately, I doubt a Battle Droid can be made to fit with the Mighty Mugg 'form.' :-\

If they took the head of the mold they could do a super battle droid.  But then it would be really short, but I think the Yoda and Chewbacca are the same height...

Wow! Nice wave. It seems they are now coming with more accessories, 2 guns, 2 light sabers. I was really dissappointed in Bobba Fett coming with nothing. I would be more into the line if he had been better.

If they can make a Grievous one they can make a Battle Droid. :P

I would like to talk about variants. I have seen alot of talk and some listings of variant stormtrooper and vader. There seems to be some disagreement. As far as I know, the vader variant has two dots for eyes not four, and the stripe on his helmet is more pronounced. However, I have seen the four dot vader listed as a variant! I am not even sure there is a stormie variant. The story with these seems to be that the variant has the pronounced grey shading on his face whereas the normal one has either very light shading or none at all. Does anyone have any insight into this that constitutes more than rumor? Mebbe we can ask hasbro?

I did notice they had some Wave 4 Muggs at Target this past weekend.  I believe I saw Grievous, Bespin Luke, and the Emperor.  Actually, it looks like HTS has some of these in stock and shipping as well.

I posted this over on RS about a month ago, but have gotten zero help.  I am wanting the SDCC exclusive Mighty Muggs Commander Gree.  I am unable to attend SDCC because my job's busiest time is from June-August, plus I don't think my wife would understand why I need to fly to the west coast for a "toy show."   Anyway, if anybody is planning on attending and could pick me up one of these, I would really appreciate it.  I can pay you for the item and for shipping to Texas.  Shoot me a pm if you're able to help...

If it's a Hasbro exclusive item, I wouldn't sweat it all that much.  The trend recently has been for these things to go up for sale at HTS.com a couple of weeks after the show.  Even without attending I don't think you'll have a very hard time finding this.  I know I don't worry about anything Hasbro makes as an exclusive anymore.

I pre-ordered the commander gree sdcc mighty mugg through ebay express.  The seller's ebay id is phillips-r-us. I don't know if they will be able to get more than one but it wouldn't hurt to ask.

My Star Wars Mighty Muggs (so far)

Mace Windu
Lando
Jango
Boba
Vader (non-variant)
Cody
Obi-Wan
Bespin Luke
Tatooine Luke
Stormtrooper (variant)
Leia
Darth Maul
Grievous
C-3PO
Yoda
Chewie (in the mail)
Han (in the mail)
Palpatine (in the mail)
Stormtrooper (non- variant in the mail)
Commander Gree (pre-ordered)

That's every one so far except for variant Vader!!!

I'm not so sure it's actually a variant on the Vader. I think the first one had the extra set of eye dots that made it confusing to look at. So the way I see it is the 4 dots is an error and the 2 dots is the correction. Not exactly an intentional variant in my opinon.
The most prized possession of my entire star wars collection is my Sega Trilogy Special Edition Pinball Machine.

This may be the answer to the variant question courtesy or our friends at rebelscum. According to this, punkinhead is correct, and the four dotter is the error/variant. Furthermore, no mention of a stormie variant.

I love these guys. i have all of them so far except Yoda and bespin Luke. I've seen bespin Luke a few times, but I'm waiting to see both of them together so i can use a target $5 off coupon :)

The next clone wars wave looks really great. pretty hyped for dooku and ventress.

My wish list for the next wave would be

-Tusken Raider
-Old Ben Kenobi
-bossk
-ig-88
