The Ryloth episodes...  Weren't these the guys at the head of the armored column?  Or maybe I'm misremembering that.  There were a number of AT-RT's on Ryloth as I recall, but that's an interesting deco on that one...  buzz = instant pegwarmer, haha.  But the AT-RT, maybe not.  I like weird paintjobs so I may nab that.

BTW Hasbro didn't talk a lot about exclusives at Toy Fair...  i think in general they don't because it's less for collector sites, more for retailers, and the exclusives are locked up.  Images of those turning up implies they're not too far off.  Month, maybe two I'd think.

Packaged shots of New Clone War Deluxe Figures are pictured at Sandtroopers.com. No suprises, it's stuff all seen at Toy Fair,  some of the all new vehicles.

Grievous's mini wheel bike is merely "Attack Cycle". Not the most inspired named, but hey, this is Star Wars.  ;)

These have kind of grown on me (the mini-rig styled ones) a bit of late...  I like the Clone vehicle a lot except for the blasters on it.  They're so goofy big that I just think that's odd and "unrealistic" (for lack of a better term).  I'm going to maybe remove those though...  I like the design otherwise.

Doesn't look like they gave it the swivel forearms that the firefighter droid had, though. But why would they, when they make ball joint hipped speeder biker clones with no ankle joints.

I would probably have hunted down every single one of these sets had they not been priced at nearly $20 each. Otherwise, these are really great sets with character and vehicle choices, but, sadly, I'll have to skip each of them.

IMO The deluxe line is really carrying the CW line . The single carded figures are good, but some of these are really freaking cool.

Lots of new shots of the first wave over at JTA...I guess they have just hit overseas. I have to question their whole "less than 30 days" projected domestic timeline because I don't think distribution is nearly that predictable.

I hate the thought of having to buy all 4 of these at once too...this feast or famine shtick is getting tiresome.

Generally when something hits overseas, you can start expecting it in about a month.  That's just a general thing though...  If stores aren't stocking anything, obviously that changes.  Sometimes it varies more for sub-lines too, like Deluxe or vehicles, where product doesn't move as briskly as basic figures.

Took a look at the Grievous set (which I really dig), and how is he supposed to hold the electrostaff if the figure can't even hold a lightsaber properly?

And what happened to the Boba set?

Saw this over the 'Scum. The AWESOME NEW Y-WING MOLD folks really wanted...er...not.



Mini-rig in the kiddie ride version of a big vehicle style.  :P Like the rear turret (is if for astro droids?). They had a servicable concept but had to make it too Y-wingy (those engine pods look playskoolish) rather than just an "off screen" air speeder/mini-fighter.
