Ok, if you needed more proof, here is a MUCH clearer pic of the LEGO figs. Rex is CLEARLY marked and is the very same trooper as originally posted and seen in the CW trailer as well.

Awesome.  Thanks for posting!  I'm so glad that the mail away figure is a decent army builder!

NP, glad to help.

I'm glad there was something more official about this, without having to wait for Hasbro to pony up with the info.

I'm hoping that we'll see the figure at Toy Fair - it's our best chance to see our first glimpse of a Clone Wars cartoon-based figure.

Yikes.  That's a terrible thought.

How are we going to get a preview figure mailed to us before July 26 if we don't even have coupons yet?

Hmm... the coupon doesn't say anything about it being a "preview" figure. It'll probably be handled just like the GL Stormie and the VTSC Coins were - "they'll get here when they get here"  :P

The coupons will be in figures like Wave 5 of the Saga Legends collection. I'm assuming all of the 2008 Saga Legends figures will ship with the offer.

If you check out this image:
http://www.rebelscum.com/photo.asp?image=http://www.rebelscum.com/toys2008/SLshadowstorm1.jpg

You'll see that the sticker reads:

Quote
SPECIAL OFFER! Get a sneak peak at the Clone Wars action coming in Fall '08, with an exclusive Captain Rex figure -- available ONLY in this special offer! Visit starwars.hasbro.com or see inside for more details. Valid in U.S. and Canada only. Expires 12/31/08.

It is this wording that changed this figure from being a "mail away offer" to a "sneak preview" figure.

Oh yeah, I forgot about the verbiage on the sticker.

Ahhh, I remember that comparison shot from the Clone Wars presentation at C4.

Seeing that comparison shot makes me think I prefer the older style of animation.  I loved Genndy Tartakovsky's work.

Commander Rex mail in offer
« Reply #59 on: February 11, 2008, 02:03 PM »
Hey, I found a bunch of TAC Legends figures with the Commander Rex offer sticker on them this morning at my local Walmart. The sticker said to get the P.O.P inside or go to Hasbro.com. I looked at Hasbro no sign of the offer. Anyway, there was no way I was going to buy those figures, so I guess we are going to wait to see what we need to get this figure.
