Excuse me for being stupid, but what's the removable battle club on this guy - the one he's holding in his hand?  I don't remember the episode all to well...and here I thought I'd be able to stay away from many of the animated figs.  Don't want to fall down this hole personally.   :-\

I'm REALLY digging that Talz, and I'm amazed they're making him. TX-20 and Sidious look pretty neat, too. I definitely want at least one of each figure from this wave, which is pretty monumental since I almost never buy full waves. :o

I really like this wave as well.  I've been hoping for figures from the Trespass episode, one of my favorites from Season 1.  Like others have mentioned, I really hope Obi-Wan and Rex are around the corner as well.  The only problem I see with a figure like the Anakin, is the ability to actually sit in the recently released Freeco speeder - but we'll probably get a slightly tweaked one released with that vehicle again down the road.  Nice wave overall, and I like that they are sticking to the manageable size of 4-5 new figures per wave.  The Sidious was a bit of a surprise, but the whole wave is pretty spiffy.

The loose photo shows that the lower portion of the coat is slit up the side. Obviously not the most esthetically pleasing design functionality wise, but hopefully the plastic is soft enough as to not be a hinderance in piloting the speeder.

I really hope Obi-Wan and Rex are around the corner as well. 

In the last Q&A at 16bit, Hasbro confirmed this Anakin and a Snowbi-Wan would "find their way into the 2010 CW basic figure lineup."  With Anakin shown and Obi-Wan confirmed, I'd say there is a plenty good chance they will get to Rex eventually too.

Excuse me for being stupid, but what's the removable battle club on this guy - the one he's holding in his hand?

That's his removable battle club.   ;D

Meh, all are a pass for me except: CW46: Commander TX-20 (Tactical Droid)

I think that one will look good enough next to realistic droids to fit in.

Man, this line is saving me oodles of scratch!

Yeah, Thi-sen kicks all sort of booty.  That will proably be my favorite Clone Wars figure for awhile.  I wish Anakin had his hood up.  The pinhead just looks goofy to me.  I like that they attempted to make Sidious.  I just don't care for how it turned out.  Mainly the lower body.  The clonetrooper is nice but I doubt I'll get it.  I am glad they made the Tactical Droid.  I don't really care for the lower body but I mainly just remember upper body shots from the cartoon.  Anyway, I think it's a nice wave.  Hopefully Kenobi turns out better than Anakin did.  I think Rex will come out sometime after the Legacy Snowtrooper Concept figure has had it's run at the retail stores.  They look practically the same.

Glad to see Darth Sidious finally making his way into the CW lineup.  That was long overdue.

Some new pics of this wave (and Sport Skiff Ani) tonight...  


Clicky to check 'em out!

I like the Talz, and the Commander Droid, and plan to buy those.  I'm considering an Anakin to custom into a realistic cold weather Ani at some point too but I'm not sure on that one.  The body looks good though.  Figuring out a hat's going to be the rougher part there.  This may be the first time I bought multiple CW figures from one wave though.

Yeah, this wave looks reallly solid, despite Ani's pea-head.  It will be nice to buy an entire wave of all new sculpts.  I like clones, but...jeez...

How vintage is that Anakin head?  Funny.  This is a great wave.  Like them all.

Seriously, I wonder how something like that makes it to production.  Apparently several individuals looked at the prototype and thought it was good.

To me that Sidious fig is what makes the CW line such a good complinment line to Legacy.

These latest pics look even better than the first batch. (Why does a strategy droid need a pistol though?)

I just wish it wasn't going to be 3 more months before we see these in stores...
