This Bane looks like at least partially new, the Deluxe version didn't have a trench coat on. This one does. I like the effort on TODO-360.

These are shipping from Hasbro US now too-- got my case from Entertainment Earth on Friday.  No Hondo, though.  Bane's pretty impressive, but take note: the only articulation on Todo is his head, no matter how the arms look.

Can't wait for these to hit retail, I'm super stoked for the updated Obi-Wan, Ahsoka, and Anakin character models!

Good to know, I see SWS has 'em now too, but only by the case - for $94.99 I can wait.

Hoping to see retail reports on these in another week or two...

Someone posted in RS forum that this wave was spotted at a Target in Cali.

Hope they make it out to the East Coast before too much longer...

Looks like someone's visiting Target this Wednesday...

Visited Target today (hoping to find the AOTC wave of TVC), and instead I found this wave. Only Obi and Hevy, pretty bummed to see that Bane was gone. I contemplated getting Hevy, but, always lured to the Jedi characters, I instead got Obi.

Not a bad figure, but not terribly exciting, either. I dunno. He just looks too neutral - if his stance had been widened up a bit or if there were more accessories, then my demanding self would have been satisfied.

I scored the perfect trifecta today: I found new Clone Wars figures, I found all of them, and they were all on minty cards. Game, set, match - done. Doesn't get much better than that!

Obi-Wan's head looks a little too small but I do think it is a much better rendering of the animated character.

My general feeling is that they are all pretty cool in their own way, but none are overly spectacular. A good filler wave.

Thanks to Target for making my week!  ;D

I'm looking forward to finding this wave, so far I have just been unlucky. Usually if it is hitting targets, I am in good shape. My local Wal-Marts seem to be in a no-stocking mode these days-

I saw them yesterday at TRU as well, so it might be worth checking them all.

It's a decent wave, but probably the least exciting of this year. It only gets better from here!

I found most of what I want from this wave at Targets spread out all this week. All I need to be "done" with this wave is another R7 so I can display one in and out of Ashoka's JSF. Kinda a low-level purchase wave for me since there aren't any army builders. But it looks like some of the upcoming waves will more than make up for that.

Man, I thought I had picked up 2 of the new Cad Banes last week, I was opening some stuff today and I had a new one and an old one...they look almost identical on the cards (as does the card art).  Only the TODO distinguishes the look

yeah, the differences aren't too extreme.  The deluxe Bane was pretty realistic looking.  The one with TODO is a bit more realistic looking, but side-by-side with older versions and the differences are really negligible, or at least confusing.

So, anybody know why Hondo doesn't appear to be in this wave?

He's on the card back of the Cad Bane w/Todo  card as #39, what 's up with that? Does anyone have an explanation why he's no where to be found?  ???
