Wave 2 spotted in Australia.

It's weird...part of me feels sad and frustrated that these are going to take FOREVER to show up here because of all the garbage stuck on the pegs now...and then part of me just doesn't care anymore. This wave kinda blows, and having so few figures due this year just sucks all sense of urgency out of the very thought of hunting around for this stuff.

Way to kill collector interest, fellas.

I like that they rereleased Aayla. I already have her, so skip. Just need Boss and new Rex. Isn't Obi-Wan different too?

Does anyone know if Boss is a resculpt for the animated line or just a carded version of the exclusive pack from TRU and CC?

It's an animated sculpt. Some people have expressed concerns about knee articulation, but I could care less.

Yes, Obi-Wan is different too...improved facial sculpt I believe.

Yes, Obi-Wan is different too...improved facial sculpt I believe.

And less articulation than previous versions.

Brian's Toys has Wave 2 in stock...  Might be worth ordering and avoiding the hastle looking around for stuff at B&M stores these days.

$50 for four figures? I don't think so.

co-sign. I'll just wait til they show up at stores...sometime in July or August, judging by the pace the current junk is moving.  ::)

It's amazing how quickly Hasbro managed to kill any sense of enthusiasm I had for this line.

The most exciting part of Clone Wars collecting now is finding old stuff being clearanced at the discount stores. That's sad.

I've found multiple figures from the "new" TCW line - including the apparently hard to find Cody - and I've passed them all up without a second thought. I have absolutely no regard for this line now; Hasbro effectively killed it. The only TCW item I'll pick up in the forseeable future is the "Maul Returns" BP.

There is an easy way to correct that. Just replace his forearms with those of the 2011 Obi-Wan. Using a hair dryer, I did this last night and the results are phenomenal. Now, Obi-Wan has the wrist articulation that he deserves.  ;)

So...someone posted over at RS recently that there was a variant of the Boss figure in circulation now, the difference being some orange paint apps added to the backpack accessory. (as opposed to the standard all-white backpack)

Of course, now that I'm actually LOOKING for a Boss figure on the pegs again, I can't find one. I did confirm that the one that come with the Walmart 8-pack is the regular version.

What strikes me as odd is that there are NO examples of this variant to be found on eBay anywhere. So I can't help but wonder if this is just a lot of hooey, or if anyone else has seen such a thing, or can find any photographic proof thereof.

Thanks in advance!

Well, it took me 3 months, but I was finally able to confirm that this is in fact a legitimate variant. I think the reason I had so much trouble verifying this is because the variant is only showing up in overseas markets, the UK and Australia mainly from what I can piece together. It is very obvious from the few photos I have seen - definitely all new bright orange paint apps on the backpack.

I was able to snag one just this evening from a seller in the UK for about $23 shipped. Well worth it, IMO as there are not that many true variants in this line and coming at the end I suspect I lot of people will miss this one.

Thanks for the heads-up! I just scored one of these as well.
