I wonder if the clone 3-pack will come in different paint schemes like they did last time.  There seems to be many paint jobs in ROTS that could be used on these guys,

but I wish these were out now... I wonder just how big the Crab Droid will be.

I don't think it will be that big, it's only a $10 figure so it will probably be around the size of the CW Spider Droid I'm guessing...

I like the fact that Stass Allie comes with the BARC bike.  When we heard about this wave last week, that was the only question I had.  I'm glad it's the BARC bike because I have waaaay more than enough OT Speederbikes already.   ;)

Who knows though - maybe the Crab Droid will be bigger and not a $10 toy.

The reason I say that is because the BARC Speeder is a $15 toy, and not considered a deluxe.  Maybe Stass Allie will be a $15 toy also, giving hope that the Crab Droid will be in the $20-$30 range.

I do hope it's bigger... and that they make a smaller, $10 version as well, because in the movie I think there are going to be Crab Droids of different sizes.

Plus, in the pic they show the Crab Droid being much larger than the others, which to me means they plan on making it the larger version.

Yeah but that's a Rebelscum composite. Hasbro only shows them individually.

Chewie, these 4 are confirmed to be Wave 3 of the Deluxe Figures...

e-tailers are already taking pre-orders for the cases with early case pack reports saying:

2x Clone Troopers
1x Crab Droid (w/Walking Action, like the CW Spider Droid)
2x Stass Allie w/Speederbike (BARC bike)
1x NEW Spider Droid

They should be out at the $9.99 price point like the other DLX figures.

Of course, there could be a larger version coming that we don't know about.

From the very top of the Wave 3 page at Hasbro:

Quote
Look, you can tell your friends that they're just "collector's items", but don't leave these figures in package. Then you're only hurting yourself.

They're starting to get really annoying with thier "these are for playing with!" song and dance. So let me say back:

Look, you can tell your customers they're just "kids toys", but don't believe your own hype. You're only hurting yourself, Hasbro.

I'm glad that BARC Speeder with Stass Allie doesn't have the "zipper" feature. I was really looking forward to getting the BARC w/Trooper but after I saw that huge rubber wheel protruding from the bottom I decided to pass.

I loved those "zip" toys when I was kid, I had killer demolition derby set, but I don't like it on SW toys. :P

I've got a couple of the BARC Speeders and it's really not that noticeable.

The only thing about the one coming with Stass Allie is that it does have the exploding feature.  That can be good, but also bad if it's too flimsy.
