I am sure thats not everything, just what they wanted to mention. I am hoping we get more new figures, not too worried about it though.

I'm sure we'll get more stuff too, but the whole point of an event like this is to get people excited about the line.  Right now I'm kinda unimpressed, a little bored, somewhat indifferent and totally confused.

Another wave mentioned was Hoth and supposedly a few in the wave have "not been done in this scale before".  I am hoping that mean a brown jacket hoth soldier and perhaps Major Derlin? 

The 2 EE 5 packs of the Astromech droids sounds pretty damn sweet if you ask me! 

I wonder what clones will be with those exclusive Target 5 packs? 

Seperations of the Twins for Wal-Mart hopefully will be nice and not repackes of Bail and Kenobi. 

It's a bit more encouraging.  I am not sure what to make of that Target Stealth Trooper?  What the hell is it?

I like how they're going back to "themed" waves like in the first half of 2004. There were like 3-4 figs per wave, and they shipped a new one about once a month, making the figs pretty easy to hunt down. Hopefully they continue to do this.

The Exclusives sound good, can't wait to see pics of them.

This gives me a lot more hope! :)

I take it back. Hasbro is doing it right. Hurray non-substantive posts.

Now that I have more time to post...

Yeah, this is good news. The Saga stuff from 2004 was really much better than the OTC stuff that followed after it (spare VOTC). Are we getting the Ultra line back with it...or has that been nixed?

Edit II: Where is the crazy Coleman?

I'm waiting with baited breath for a detailed account of the Q&A. The real version with the hard hitting questions, not the watered down versions that those "other" sites give.

The brief synopsis of the Q&A has me calmed down a bit and a little less annoyed with the repacks of before.  Those 3 resculpts look very very good and so does the new packaging.

I'm back to guarded optimism.

I'm right there with you Rob...  It's amazing what 3 impressive looking 3 new figures can do for the old outlook.  Plus there's always encouragement that Hasbro's going to go the extra mile to get Clones out...  albeit long after the film's been in any limelight, but they may still be putting forth the effort for us.

Was there any mention of or question about additional Clone Wars stuff--specifically, the rumored next wave of Animated figures? I've not seen anything in any site's SDCC coverage, so I guess we can conclude this was a) just a rumor, or b) it was legit but was scrapped for whatever reason.

C'mon here, enough fluff.  Is Colman in the slammer for his behaviour or was he just so disgusted he refuses to communicate?  I want the real details.

Has anybody checked hooters? Colman may be dead. :-\


Ghost of Colman?

Anyone? Bueler?
