Interesting.  The jet pack Battle Droid might be one of the droids that was attacking the escape pods in RISING MALEVOLENCE.  Perhaps the green trooper is Gree or one of his troops.

Hmm...  what happened to the rumors of Yularen/Etc and all that?

Not too excited for JarJar, but I'll take the BD, Clone, and Fisto. :)

Kit fisto looks awsome, the gun on the clone is killer, the droid looks ok aswell as the gungan (is it really jar jar?) would be nice if the gungan had knee articulation and its hard to tell if kit has it too. So far hasbro hasnt been able to make a cw figure that intrigues me. at first I hated the IG droid but after that episode (6?) I want him lol.

Man, that Green Clone has got a serious BFG. Might be picking up a few of those just for the gun...

Fisto and the new Jet-Pack Battle Droid are looking pretty cool too.  :)

Wow. I don't collect the animated line at all, and I actually stopped watching the show all together but I might just have to pick up that Kit Fisto. It sure is a nice looking figure.

They are really going balls out on these CW figs. Looks like the BD as received knee articulation - an upgrade from the first CW Battle Droidi release. And dare I say it, Jar Jar looks great! They seem to have nailed his CW likeness. The green Clone is cool, especially the BFG. It looks like it probably has a rocket (not pictured) that fits down the "barrel" of it for added play value too. Now we need a CW version of Gree to command him.
Kit too, looks great in this format - maybe better than the "realistic" version.

Like others have said, the entire wave looks pretty good.  The clone with the BFG is cool, and like Jeff said, its tempting to get more just to get more of the gun.  The Kit Fisto is great, and I'm really digging the "other" Jedi in this line so far (after opening Plo yesterday).  This will make my two favorite "background" Jedi, Plo and Kit, the first two to get their due in the CW line - so I'm happy with that.  Jar Jar even looks pretty good, as well as the battle droid.  Nice lineup overall.

The Battle Droid looks cool.  I guess it's supposed to be one of the hunter droids from the "Rising Malevolence" episode.  It would be awesome to get their hunter ships in the vehicle line, too.

I think you're right about the gun there, the barrel almost looks too big not to have something spring loaded to go down the middle.  Heck JarJar likeness looks great for even a realistic movie version.  I wish the realistic figs would come with this kick ass gear.  CW versions get better molds of standard gear rifles, carbine, pistols, and extras with the rochet launcher and now the gattling blaster.

Head out to the front page if you want to see a new photo of the upcoming Hunter Droid from the Clone Wars line.  These were pretty cool droids in the cartoon since they were pretty evil.  Check him out!
