Jeff:
File this one under "WTF?" or "Things that rub salt in the wound":

Entertainment Earth just posted FIVE new 2012 Clone Wars assortments.  Yes, new case assortments of the 2012 Clone Wars figures, set to arrive this spring.  WTF?  ???

So...  we can't get the 2013 Clone Wars figures in the USA, but we can get five new assortments of 2012 figures?   ::)

McMetal:
um...what?!?!

5 revision cases? FIVE? All of which have more or less the same figures? WTF, indeed.

I guess this would explain why the TCW figures currently on the pegs aren't getting clearanced, ala Target and TVC. Must be the same DPCI.

At least this will give fans another shot at those hard to find Obi and Anakin figures. I mean, why WOULD you re-issue Scuba Ahsoka? She was only the most interesting figure released all year.  ::)

Jayson:
Ahh... more opportunities for Phase II clones  ;)

Greg:
Holy crap... 18 Anakins and 15 Clones spread among the 5 cases. The burning question is WTF wasn't TVC packed in a similar manner. Royal Guards, Malgii, and Republic Troopers probably would have sold thru at 3x per case, maybe even 5x.

Darby:
Clearly no one is minding the store. I'm not one to pile on Hasbro, but this is really bad business.
