I gotta go to the gym so I'm likely to miss this fun stuff.

I hope Matt really digs about Super Articulated Figures...  I want more, more, more!

He did mention that there would be tons more Clones and more SA but it wasn't necessarily clear that the SA Clone was going to be released

I was just looking at those. General Grievous looks cool but Unleashed IG-88.  :o   8)

Here's more info I found:
Hasbro Q& A At Comic-Con
Posted by Curto on July 23, 2004:

Like the title says, here are the highlights from the Q&A session at Comic-Con, in no particular order. Keep in mind the phrase "While we are always looking at possible releases, nothing is planned at this time."

RS Q & A coverage


Sorry Frank, but I think out of respect for RS, we should probably just link to their coverage of the Q & A, and not copy/paste the whole thing in here (so I added the link).

Never type when still half asleep...

Good to hear action features are only making a limited come back.

Someone get Matt on the horn and report the findings! I have to know! Q&A's are better than drugs!

Man, Jedidefender is becoming much more exciting than other fan sites recently for news and updates.  I really like this place and the no b!tching at each other in these forums as compared to some other sites.

I really like the answers that were posted, especially the prequel figures, those will be a great addition to the line.  And at least they are thinking about a modular Death Star set or so it seems.  

What sucks though is the return of the action figures.  YUCK!

*edit* I meant action features, not figures.  Damn it's been a long day at work.

 :P

Chewie, I guarantee the staff appreciate your sentiments above.  I know I do.

There is b!tching though, don't kid yourself.  ;)  Too many knowledgeable guys and gals arund here not to have some good debating.

Right on, Chewie.  Spuffy's thoughts:

Coruscant Wave:  Yay.  The Wookie and Pablo are very exciting, and I suppose Sly is too.  Wonder how many Wookie Warriors we'll get out of this new body...

Naboo Wave:   :o  But wait - no handmaiden Padme?  I suppose a custom will be easy enough now, but come on.

Cantina Wave: Long in coming.  Not as excited by Dannik as the other two, but then nothing can be as exciting anymore as 'They're making Oola!'  or 'Wedge!' or...

Sneak Preview Wave: I miss the mail away sneak peek.

CW Animated: No Armored Obi?  No Snow Bunny padme?  Like Handmaiden Padme or Wedge, Hasbro has something against these figures.

The Fan Choice being delayed because of spoiler info, that's bizarre.  What figs from the first 5 movies spoil the 3rd one?  Any ideas?

Amen Chewie!

Umm, my thoughts on all of this?

Sounds like the Episode III line is going to be an armybuilding dream come true. And that I am thankful for.

The rest, meh, it dosen't really interest me a great deal. I suppose I'm just too excited about the Episode III line.

I will say this, however, if Hasbro should decide to make modular playsets, they better do it right. One possible idea that I would think is a sure bet for Episode III is the Sepratist Cruiser, so many figures with so many enviroments, they'd be stupid not to.

Action features?
Dammit.

As long as they aren't on every figure, I guess I can stomach them.
It's not like Hasbro won't make five different versions of the main characters.

I'm glad to see some more CW Animated figures, but they're missing the armored Obi. Maybe they'll do one later, but I'm not holding my breath.

And that Unleashed IG-88? Jesus H. Christ in a chicken basket, that's neat.
