So Hasbro isn't doing obscure characters from the Clone Wars, huh?  Hmm.  How long until the "Lair of Grievous" BP with Nadarr?

Their just not doing the guys in one episode only. Two episodes is fair game.  ???
Still, I'm liking the pack and think I might pick it up.

Hasbro is going to town with the animated stuff.  Kinda makes me wish I didn't delve into it.  I actually like most of the episodes, but it's hurting my wallet everytime I see a new show with Clone X or Y - amongst all of the other characters in various outfits.  Was Kenner this bad back in the day with Ewoks and Droids?  Me thinks not.  Time to abandon ship pretty soon here.

I'm kind of in the same boat.  I've been buying most of the animated stuff so far, at least one of each of the individual figures, and have been thinking about jumping ship as well - or at least cutting back.  I need to be able to seperate enjoying the show without having to "have the stuff" :).  I'll probably be picking up at least a few figures here and there (Fisto, Jawas, Jar Jar, etc.), but I'm looking at these Toy Fair pics and trying to figure out what I can do without too.  The budget is tight, and I'd rather put the money towards Legacy stuff if I have to choose.  This BP looks nice, and it would be ok to have a Gah Nackt (sp?) - but the rest seem to be essentially repacks, so it makes it less appealing at $20-$25.

This is a lame set.  Odds are most collectors and kids already have Anakin and Ashoka - this set stinks.

Did I miss this battle pack? I saw the news over on GH that it's only coming out in the Blue/White packaging, if that's the case, is it coming soon or have I missed this set entirely?

I don't think this set is out yet.  I haven't seen it at B&M retail.  It's probably going to be a pass for me when it does come out.

Well according to the sign at SDCC this battle pack is "Available: NOW" - I've been noticing a reappearance of the Jedi vs. Darth Sidious and the Jedi Training on Dagobah battle packs - are these sets shipping with the Vulture's Claw pack and that set is selling out first?

I think it's shipping with the Geonosis Assault Gunship BP. I'm not sure of the other case mates though.

But from that report a week or so back, Hasbro is saying that this set is ONLY coming out in the blue/white packaging. The Gunship pods BP is coming out in the Red/White packaging....

I was going to write up something potentially refuting that, but this is astonishing.

eBay

Given there have been no pre-orders that I've seen on this... I gotta wonder what's up.

It's out there, I saw this in person at Wizard World Chicago this past weekend for $30 from Brian's Toys. I like the Trandosian but that's it. It should start hitting soon.

Since this isn't shipping in the red/white line look (and since all stores seem to get anymore in the way of Battle Packs are those damned reissues of the Dagobah, Jedi vs. Sidious, and Clone Attack on Coruscant sets), is it too early to ask that Hasbro release Gha Nackt on a card?

I was looking for this on my toy run this afternoon.  And there was no sign of this at any of the stores I hit, despite Clone Wars having a significant presence at almost every store I visited.
