I like the fact they are gonna overship that Naboo Fighter again. Wave 1, wave 2, Wave 2 revision 1.

And scuba clone is one wave so far.

Of course, the set could be the micro series scuba clone with that 1999-2000 Gungan Scout Sub thingie Obi-Wan came with.  :o

What is the Republic Recon Fighter with Anakin that is also listed in this wave? Is that a TPM based offering? Or another Clone Wars selection?
 

I was definitely thinking that this is THIS VEHICLE that was shown at Toy Fair 2011 with Obi-Wan.  That got cancelled, but Hasbro may have re-purposed it for Spring '12.  Plus, with the upcoming Naboo Skiff being offered with a TPM Obi-Wan, perhaps Hasbro wanted to get a different character paired up with the Republic Recon Fighter.  If they're going to be in the same Deluxe Figure & Vehicle assortment I can see Hasbro wanting different characters in the lineups. 

Plus, there's this:  Hasbro has consistently stated that if they have PUBLICALLY shown an item in print or at industry events like Toy Fair / Comic Con, they feel a committment to getting that piece out to market.

We have a winner!  Albeit in a different paint scheme, but it is on the way with Anakin.

Would've rather had just a plain white scuba clone, but we'll probably see it as one of the remaining 2012 figures.

Wonder if any red trimmed attack recon fighters were made and will pop up on the aftermarket?

These things both look great! I'm really glad they are keeping the recon fighter in the animated line, but I sort of preferred the original paint scheme. I guess it was just too similar to the Attack Shuttle Command module though.

The submarine looks cool as hell too, as does the scuba clone. The Anakin from the other set looks like a straight repack.

As I feared though, there does not appear to be any marking on the package identifying these as Clone Wars toys. I don't see how these are being differentiated from the TVC Deluxe sets, unless there is some kind of subtle differences in the paint scheme on the packaging or something...

Wonder when these will actually hit the shelves?

I imagine we'll see these fairly soon.  I'm also glad they are doing the recon fighter, but I liked the red too.  Very cool all around.

Apparently they are both In Stock at EE, but only available by the case, not individually.

Phase 1.5?  ;) and based on the deco.. it kind of looks like Oddball even though the GBG card is a generic pilot.

Phase "We needed an excuse for yet another technological advancement in physical form to make more Clones unnecessarilly, in a fictional war that supposedly was only 3 years long" Clone Pilot. :)

Seriously, I can buy one or two chances, but Clone Pilots seem to be going nuts with all the helmet variations.  Hell, there's two in ROTS alone, 1 in AOTC, and now Clone Wars sneeks one in...  Enough already.

No bad, looks a little cramped for the pilot.

I thought Hasbro said there were only two deluxe clone wars coming, this makes 3. Hmmm...

They said four...

From the latest Q&A at RS:

"Hasbro: There are 19 total single carded Clone Wars animated figures planned for 2012. There are also 4 Clone Wars themed "mini-rig" figure & vehicle packs and 1 Clone Wars themed Battle pack planned for 2012."

Well, #4 better be Baby Boba and speeder, as we were promised earlier. I hate the thought of unproduced toys hanging out there in limbo.
