Denal: Cool.  Rest of them: Blah.  It will take them years just to roll out all the goodies from Season 1!

Denal and Cad Bane look awesome, but the space suit concept is just retarded. I think it only worked with Saesee Tiin in the original cartoon.

Yeah, this wave seemed more "meh" to me as well.  Cad Bane is something different, and the clone is ok, but the spacesuit variants are sort of boring.  I can see why they are done, as its a good way to get the main characters out there again, but just not overly interesting.

I'm really digging the Cad bane figure. Definitely an old west meets space opera character. I think it's going to make for a great custom figure as well. I'm down for one and another to custom.  Not getting any of the other ones though.

I will most likely get Cad Bane.  Unless he totally sucks in the cartoon series.  It looks like a good figure.

The only two I really want are Cad Bane and Ahsoka.

Yeah, I think I'm going to get the Ahsoka figure now too along with the Cad Bane fig. (So long as the helmet is removable)

Definately will be getting Cad Bane. He is the only one that I really am looking forward to. I will buy the Anakin and Ahsoka figures only for my Jedi Knight collection.

We've got new loose Cad Bane pictures out on the front page for your viewing pleasure...  I'd say he's maybe the most anticipated figure of 2009 for this line really.  I'm almost tempted to get one myself just for on the desk here.  Perhaps a second to try and customize a realistic styled Cad... 

I'm geeked for the 2nd season and all its seemingly violent bounty hunter goodness that may be on the way.

Head on out and check him out, I think he's pretty sharp looking.

A couple more loose images of Cad Bane turned up so head on out to the front page to check 'em out.  They give a little more of the details to the sculpt and arm articulation.  One thing I'm constantly disappointed with on the CW line is the lack of articulation to them...  If I were a collector I'd probably be pretty annoyed.  One more reason I'm glad I'm not, but Bane looks pretty badass I must admit.

Ordered that from him this morning.  Might as well, haven't seen anything new in stores in a while anyway.

I hear that.  There are a few CW figures I want to get but all I can find are IG droids.

I may actually nab Bane at some point to cobble a realistic figure.  I tend to wait for some kind of sale to pick up anything animated though, but I may plunk the $ down on Bane just to get the parts quicker.  Not sure yet on him.

Bane is probably going to be my last animated purchase, then I'm out of this line.
