ll be all over it if it is REX from Star Tours. ;D but i doubt it. it will probably be that clone that we see Asaj force choking in the trailer. or some other clone trooper of some sort that could easly be repainted and given out.

No. It's gotta be REX for Star Tours!! It can't be just another repainted clone. It just can't. :-X

Captain Rex? The droid from Star Tours? Interesting...



IIRC, the Star Tours ride at Disney is getting a major overhaul.  So perhaps there's a new Captain Rex as well.

Star Tours Rex was my first thought as well. I think it woul dactually be awesome if it turns out to be him on the show. Nice way to tie everything in together.

Okay, I can't believe all the votes for the Star Tours Rex figure.  If we can use our 2007 UPCs, then I'm hoping to army build.  I would much rather army build a repaint clone than a platoon of Star Tours Rex's.   :P

I can't imagine a more boring choice if that Droid does turn out to be the preview figure.  I've never felt the Star Tours Droids (besides the astromechs) looked like they belonged in the SW universe.

I just looked up that droid on Wookieepedia and here's an interesting tidbit:

Quote
According to The Cinema of George Lucas, the character was originally envisioned by George Lucas as a veteran of the Clone Wars called "Crazy Harry", before the idea of a rookie pilot droid was developed.

Hmmm.

I think it's just a recycled name. My guess is the figure will be a Clone Captain. Probably just a red "pre-paint" of the clone shown in the poster and teaser trailer for the series.



I suppose the blue clone could be Captain Rex as well but who knows?  :P

Oh definitely, and I'll be surprised if it isn't a clone. Still, it's an amusing coincidence.

I dont think it's really going to be Rex from Star Tours but it gives me hope that it wont be a clone.

If it's that stupid droid, I'm pretty disappointed.

As a Star Tours figure, that thing is ok, but as a CW thing, I've got a lot of UPC's without a use.

I'm hoping that it's just a coincidence with the name.

I wonder if there are going to be any rules reguarding the UPC's, because it'd be funny if someone sent Hasbro a bunch of UPC's with Jedi Master Points on them. Hopefully we won't have to buy "specially marked" UPC's because I've got about 20 sitting around right now.

I'm pretty sure the form said something about the UPCs needing to come from TAC or Legends figures, so anything prior to those wouldn't be valid.  Doesn't look like they are requiring a receipt, which is very cool, since that always seems to be a major hassle.

IIRC from the Clone Wars panel at C4, this blue Clone was id'd by series director Dave Filoni at Alpha.
