Wouldn't mind the Bossk for my focus on the character...  If anyone doesn't want theirs because they think he's lame, hit me up.  Otherwise I'm not shedding any tears over passing on this one. :)  

Would've loved to have bought Boba for the fodder too, but I'll live.

I wouldn't worry - I'm willing to bet that the only figure that will end up being "exclusive" to this set is Mace Windu's astromech. Otherwise, I find it hard to believe that by 2012, both Bossk and Boba won't have been repackaged as individually carded figures. Or possibly even made available as pack-ins with the mini-rigs line.





You've got to be right.  Boba is supposed to be back next season, and Bossk as well.  R8-B7 got his head popped off in that episode, so almost certainly won't be back.  Also, unlike Anakin, Ahsoka, Obi-Wan, or Kit, Mace obviuosly has no affection for his droid whatsoever, and probably just pulls one randomly from the "droid pool" whenever he needs one.  Though I do hope R2 points out where R8's parts are so that they get salvaged before they evacuate the planet.

Are Boba and Bossk really supposed to be back? I don't recall hearing this bit of news.

It'd be cool if they broke out of prison and took Cato Parasitti with them. She's too cool to only be in one episode. ;)

I did read that Boba is going to be back.  I thought Bossk was as well, but now I can't find anything specific mentioning him.

Very interesting. Thank you! I wouldn't be surprised if we see him again, afterall, he is gonna be in TESB.

Maybe Aurra Sing breaks them out? Theres a shot in the 3rd season preview where she's sneaking up on Ahsoka.

Found this battle pack at my local TRU for $99. The box is as big as the AT-AT.

Wow, already?  And without an official announcement?  That's pretty crazy/odd...  This is one of those flagship type things, even though I don't find it overly exciting really.  Odd that it turns up like that at retail.  Good for you though Paul, you appear to be the first to pick this up. :)

Nice find. Once I saw the posting over at Yakface I went to TRU.com. Could this be the listing on TRU.com:
http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=4205503

I looked for it on their site and thought this was peculiar.

DA, Do you have any of those item numbers listed on thisr page from the package by any chance? Maybe you can help confirm this.

That's the item on the web page. The box size and weight are correct. This sucker seems to be as heavy as the AT-AT.

Awesome, so for whoever's wondering, the Item # is 506739, and the UPC is 653569566557.

I'll be annoying our local TRU's about this for weeks, I can see it now.

Thanks!

(Why do they insist on calling it a vintage action figure vehicle though? It's 100% Clone Wars, baby.)

Awesome, that matches up with the listing  page I found. I hope this comes in stock while the free shipping sale is on, I would love to continue to avoid the hunt. I am so done with store hunts...

I wonder what Hasbro's reaction would be if an unfortunate rep walked into a TRU and found a "supposed to be secret" Fett UBP on the shelves.

Someone there must know that these are already out.

Are there pictures of the Slave I floating around anywhere?
