Continuing 2013's trend of no new characters!

What is even more ridiculous is that it looks like the Obi-Wan and Anakin are yet again "NEW" versions and not just straight re-packs. For the first two years of the line the re-packed the hell out of the Anakin and Obi-Wan figures from launch - I couldn't even begin to count the number of CW Obi-Wans I have with the swap-able Helmet/Head. And then there was Anakin that was pretty much the same figure but came in three flavors - regular, space suit slight mods, soft goods... and instead of worry about those two they continued to pump out new characters.

Now they're all we get along with a handful of clones that no one really wanted.

Did we really need them to make a version of R2 that uses the Goldie body sculpt?

Like I said in the "Future of the Clone Wars line" thread, I'd much rather they cancel this line altogether then keep it limping along like it is.

It's not Goldie's mold. This R2-D2 uses the CW build-a-droid style mold that was used on a later astromech.

Yep, and Malibu Stacy HAS A NEW FUR COAT!!!  ;D

Agreed it is a lackluster line-up once again. Clearly they have not learned how to "fix" this line nor does it seem they even care anymore.

I won't go as far as Pete and wish for the imminent end, but I do admit it pretty much sucks collecting this line now and has not been fun for nearly a year now. This is all I got for SW though, so when this dries up, I'm out. And I'm not ready to be out yet.

And the kicks in the crotch from Hasbro continue. Anyone want to play a game and see who can take a picture with the most Obi-wons in it starting with this wave. I will be exempt of course because the 12 Anakins and numerous Obis that have kept me from seeing a new figure since wave one are clogging the pegs in all of my areas stores.

Looks like there is also going to be repacks of Cody, Maul, and Opress (Armored) in this wave.

Nice to see the Battle Droid's got new articulated arms, but it should've gotten articulated knees and ankles too.

Interesting how they kept the Maul and Oppress figures out of the slide show only to pass them on this way. I wonder if they did that because it's hard to sell an exclusive Battle Pack 10 slides later when you just showed off that 2 of the 3 figures in the battle pack are coming out on individual card backs....

At least they got the weapons right for the single carded releases of Maul and Oppress.

The Obi-Wan heads keep getting angrier and angrier looking.

And oh yeah, now that the vintage wave with "realistic" Ahsoka is an online exclusive only, ne'er to be found at a retail store, wonder if Hasbro will rethink releasing Season 3 Ahsoka on a single card again. That's a repack I think many people would actually welcome. So of course it will never happen.  :(

I believe Hasbro indicated that CW 44 Ahsoka is on a list of CW figures needing re-release

So then that Maul is the one that Hasbro mentioned a lot earlier this year that would see release single-carded. Funny, it's just a straight repack. Not even any tweaking... I'm sure hecka people are dissapointed that it's not even Spidey Maul. :-\

Finally a repack with armored Savage. Hasbro's just terribly sly - they don't pack in his lightsaber with the Battle Pack version so that we can get both the BP AND the single-carded repack.

I'm not exactly sure why Hasbrpo hasn't repacked Ahsoka yet. You would think that being that they're going with core characters only now they would repack her. This figure goes for $70 on Amazon!

Maybe Hasbro is one selling them on Amazon. HA!

Yeah, he's not known for being mad all the time. I think the same thing when I see Mickey Mouse figures/toys with this almost evil scowl. Is Mickey known for being an angry character?

Check out the South Park episode with him in it...  He's downright ego-maniacal.
