I thought Bossk came out ok, but mini-Boba seems like a real yawner.

Can't wait to see Robonino!

Bossk is ok - not as much character as I thought there'd be.  Boba is a letdown.  I was expecting his quasi-Jango get up from the last show, not a repeat of the AOTC figure.  Blah.  Mace's droid is sort of whatever, but he's an astromech, so.   :)

I think Bossk actually looks pretty true to the toon style...  And, as with all Trandoshans, we all know they get all da ladies...  jockin' the Wookiees and all that jazz.  I'll pick him up for my Bossk-o-Fetish.  :-X

Boba...  Anyone else think that'd make a nice enough base for a realistic Clone Youth?   ???  I may nab him just for the fodder.  I'm kind of curious what he may/may not come with as accessories.

Gives hope that the JSF repaints will have droids to match, for the people wanting them...  like Kit Fisto's fighter and such.

Is this perhaps going to be a Target exclusive? K-Mart, TRU and Walmart have already unveiled their own, sort of...

I was wondering when Hasbro was going to start repainting droids.  I love the colors; they look as bold as a lot of the design for the clone wars.  Of course droids (IG-86, C-3PO, TX-20, R2, etc.) are basically the only Clone Wars figures I do buy...

For some reason I am getting the feeling Boba will come with his ship, and not single carded.

edit:  ah, I see this has already been discussed a bit.

Although we were fairly certain he was on the way, I'm pretty jazzed we're getting a CW Bossk.  He's always been one of my favorite "secondary/background" characters, and I thought he has been pretty cool in the CW so far as well.  I'm always up for a new astromech as well, and it is nice to see we are getting little Boba (even if he is a little boring).

Bossk looks very bleh to me. 

I am wondering, is the CW version going to be out the same time the SL version is?  While I don't hold the same "collecting" traits/values as a kid, I can't see why anyone would pick up the CW version over the SL one if they were both sitting side by side on the pegs.

How awesome is that?  Love the paint scheme, especially the bare metal look he has going on his body.  Maybe this is going to be part of a set of exclusive droid/pilots 2-packs?  I can wish, anyway.

I hope we see Ahsoka and Obi-Wan's droids soon as well.

Well, I think Obi-Wan's R4 is going to be a regular figure.

I certainly hope that Ashoka, Kit Fisto and Plo Koon all get their astromechs since they will also be getting starfighters. I wonder if a Mace Windu JSF is around the corner as well...

Just Astromechs for me.  I like this one.

Aah! Who cares if that Bossk sucks anymore!... this is an AMAZING set! I'm very much ready to dish out $80+ for this!

However, this Windu rehash NEEDS to GO! Why not a repack of the upcoming Windu figure... which, fittingly enough, comes with Jango's helmet!

Overall impressive, but surprised we're not getting Slave 1 as seen in TESB.

I was expecting the new slave one to be packed with only Boba and Bossk. It's a neat box set, and I'm sorta glad that Mace's starfighter is getting made. I liked the paint scheme of his ship. The Mace Windu figure looks like the only downer in this set. I'm sorta dreading the price, but hopefully it will be some sort of bargain.
