Once again, a reminder that according to Hasbro this wave of figures is based on character designs from the old 2003-2005 Cartoon Network cartoon series and has nothing to do with the new 2008 cartoon...

All the posts about the new cardback for the new cartoon figures have been removed from this thread and merged into the The Clone Wars thread on the same topic.

Hot damn ... this is easily one of my favorite waves ever.

But at the same time ... "Just when I thought that I was out, they pull me back in." I had just resolved to go cold turkey for a while since I no longer have the money or time to keep up with even my minimal want list. But now they come out with this wave of awesomeness that I've been waiting 4 years for? Couldn't these have come out in like 2004 or 5? :'(

Hasbro, why must you torture me?

Those appear to be mockups.  It doesn't look like it's the final printing on the cardbacks.  But it does reveal the numbering for this wave.

Not sure why numbering matters, but is this wave going to be out on July 26?  It's not supposed to be, is it?

These new pics are a treat to see.  I really am going to be spending a lot of dough here... maybe the most anticipated wave for me since the original VOTC stuff.

Scuba Clone - Originally I wasn't too hot on this idea, but it's starting to grow on me now.  Count me in for 3-4 probably.

Heavy Weapons Trooper - Still not that excited by this, but it does look cool... probably want 2 of them.

IG Lancer Droid - Gulp!  This looks even better now... I want at least 5-6 of them.  Damnit!!!

Mon Cal Soldier - Ugh... this might be my fave of the wave... gimme 5-6 please.

Quarren Warrior - Curses!  I want 5-6 of this too!

Padme - Who doesn't want this hottie?  I'll take two please.

Obi Wan - Might actually be able to pass on this... stupid looking.

Saesee Tiin - I want 2 of them, but really just for customs.

Thanks... that's two weeks about after the initial launch... something tells me we'll either find a few leaks of them on July 26, or they won't be found until at least September.   ;D

Some of us keep and/or administer checklists.

I'm not a completist by any means... never kept a Star Wars checklist (or any toy checklist) before... just did for some baseball cards back in the day when trying to fill in holes for card sets.  :)

For those folks though, and for toyguide maintenance, I can see the relevance.

That's what Hasbro's Powerpoint thing said, but those are notoriously inaccurate.  Also, in movie years-- and this is a movie year-- a lot of times figure waves have arrived early, with numberous ROTS and AOTC releases showing up-- at some stores-- on launch day.  With packaged samples arriving now, it's entirely possible these MAY be available, if not widely, on 7/26.

Does it bother anyone else that the IG Lancer droid is using weapons that may not have been created yet?

All that bothers me is that they did not release the Lancer droid on a speeder bike.  I think they had to put in some weapons to help spice it up a bit.  Although they will probably release a 2 pack some day with bikes I assume?

I hope so, and I can see them doing it. That's why I'm not gonna buy too many of the single-carded bikeless version.
