Kind of cool that they're making this, and I'm definitely in the boat that's happy that Hasbro has pretty much confirmed we'll see a realistic one in the future (likely next year). Hopefully, when that happens, we'll see them go all out with a dais and everything. If anything, the animated one might give us a better chance of seeing a dais like that - since Hasbro can justify packing it with both the animated and realistic versions (or if not packing it in the battle pack, releasing it in the future). Plus, it could be realistic style just like the vehicles have been.
On the other point that jedi_master_sal brought up, do you think the Clone Wars line will be drying up within a year or so? From what I've read, the series got big ratings for CN last week, so if that continues it could really help the line. I could probably pick up almost any of the Animated Wave 1 at retail around here (with Rex and Yoda being the toughest finds), but the same could be said of the Legacy stuff as well (at least around here) for the most part - so I'm not sure how to judge the sales of these figures. Personally, I'm in the minority where I'm buying both lines right now - but I'd be fine if they had done these in realistic style in the first place as well. If it transitioned over to that, that would be just fine with me. I am curious how the lines are doing overall though, and if there is a big difference between the two.
