I like the CW '03 microseries-inspired helmet on Saesee Tiin. I can't figure out what's that on his back though. And how is Seripas supposed to fit on a standard card?! :o

I think the fall CW line looks absolutely fantastic- I wish I had started the clone wars collection a little sooner, but I'm sure glad I didn't wait any longer

I love Seripas.  I know they stole that idea from Men In Black but Kit Fisto was also stolen from them.  I am fine with it.  I commented in another thread but I love that Rex/Jetpack figure.  Kit is ok but I will leave him along with the Stealth trooper.

I think they gave Seesae Tiin the wrong color lightsaber.

These figures look pretty sharp on display at SDCC, the close-ups of Seripas in particular are amazing. That thing is going to be freaking awesome.

Is that supposed to be some sort of jetboard Saessee has on his back??

Sweet...  Seripas is pretty much the only CW figure on the horizon that I want.  I'll happily add him to the collection next to Embo and Cato.

Got my case from HTS today.  Seripas is awesome. 

Here's a comparison shot between the "Stealth Operations" TRU Exclusive and the W2 "Stealth Ops" version.  Much as they look alike, the paint is completely different between the two.  Weapons and accessories differ as well.

Wow, the TRU one shafted in the accessories department.

I know that there are a lotta folks who are fine with the Stealth Ops Trooper being an exclusive, but, to me, I just don't see it... it's very dull as an exclusive IMO.

So why didn't Hasbro just call the TRU exclusive Commander Blackout?  It rings up on scanners as Commander Blackout, and that's what the peg tags say.  Calling the exclusive Commander Blackout on the package would have avoided a fair ammount of confusion all the way round

Trademark fees, it would drive costs up..."we could call them by their proper names, but then we'd have to remove the wrist joints."  ;)

Double meaning on that one.  The paint is quite literally duller than his regular version counterpart and I agree - pretty dull figure in having an almost exact replica available elsewhere, and with more accessories to boot.  Changing the name wouldn't have added anything for me, since I'm opening both anyway.  I'm just glad TRU isn't charging a lot more for these like they used to.  If I had paid $15 for it, then found the basic version for half that, I'd be a little miffed.
