If you read the "Clone Wars" section of the Q&A Hasbro says agian and again that "fans don't prefer the animtaed style" of figures. Yes, they were referring to the Cartoon Network Clone Wars, but that marketing reseach will carry over to the new line.
Honestly, I'd love it of they were animated style. They would be somthing very different, but I would bet my Wookie that they'll be in the "traditional" realistic style.
The real question is, what's the Pack-In? Stands? Coins? Bubble Gum?
