I'll be honest: I HATE HATE HATE this trend of them putting non-TCW EU into the TCW line. If they're not in the show, they need to be slotted into another line, IMO.

Considering that Star Wars: Republic Heroes is a game that bridges Seasons 1 and Seasons 2 of the Clone Wars series, I really don't think it's that big of a deal for a figure like this to come out.

To me, it's a lot less EU than Jacen Solo with snakes wrapped around himself.

I can't help but chortle at the idea of TCW not being considered EU. And trying to partition off anything as "more EU" than a CGI kids' spinoff would have been laughable even two or three years ago.

Not making fun of you, McMetal, just at the way purist definitions of SW have changed so quickly.

It's cool, everything is relative. IMHO, the show isn't any more kid oriented than the prequels really, unless you perceive it so because of the animation, but I'm more from the Japanese school of thought where this is considered a legitimate artistic medium, so that doesn't faze me.

But to stay on topic, philosophical reservations aside, I do love everything I've seen of this figure. It would have been so easy to slap Wat Tambor's name on there too. Ah well, I will of course be buying at least 2 of these, origins be damned. :)

Looks like Wat Tambor with on war machine style roids.

I like this "non-CW" series figure and look forward to acquiring one.

I would hope that he's a free gift with purchase in the coming weeks or at best $5-$7 cheaper then $15.  Err...nevermind - he's a freakish monster in large packaging - thought he was a normal sized figure from the get go, but I guess not.

At $15 I may pass.  I like it, would love to have one, but not sure I'll cave for it at that price...  Gonna maybe have to see it first in person before I decide now.  It's neat, but just not from something I maybe care about that much.

Can anyone who finds this, please post the TRU item number?

Used the UPC number from Adam's pictures and I called a TRU to inquire about him.

Got the TRU Item number in case anyone's interested: 492695

Yeah, thanks Pete, they do not appear to have him up on their website anywhere yet.
