Strage that this wave doesn't do much for me, because I really liked the Geonosis portion of AOTC. I'm most looking forward to the repack Clone and C3PO.

I'd like the SA Clone with red Geonosian dust and some battle damage.

If 3P0 turns out to be the ROTS sculpt with the AOTC paint job, I'll be thrilled.

The others? Meh, for me.

Me neither. Good to see another carded AOTC clone so I cna get some more an non-EE prices. The Commando is interesting. I'm happy for all the EU fans and I just may pick a few to army build.

Sora Bulq- Maybe i'll buy because of his EU factor.

Clone Commando- I'll most likely buy, glad to see EU figures.

Sun ***- Pass

Poggle- Pass

C-3P0- Pass

Yoda/Fett/Clone- All Pass.

This is a big let down.  No Obi, Mace, Jango... sigh.  Anyways, my two cents:

Sora Bulq: Alien Jedi are always cool.  Sweet.

Sun Fac: Not exactly high on the ol' list, you know.

Republic Commando: Another left field choice, and a very good one.  Not sure why it's here, but hey.

Clone Trooper: Hopefully green.  SA or forget it.

3-PO: The only way this would be interesting was if was a repaint of the ROTS sculpt, and even then, I don't know.

Jango: Nope.

Yoda: Nope.

*new* - Sora Bulq: Weequay Jedi - Definite Yes. I wonder what they'll make him look like though. Probably the standard tan robes but it would be cool if he had darker colours for his robes.

*new* - Sun Fac: Geonosian Leader - Maybe. I'm not big on the political leaders, but I'm starting to get into it.
 
*new* - Republic Commando - ABSOLUTELY. Let's hope they do it right  with super-articultion and a DC-17 with blaster, sniper, and anti-armour attatchments

(repack) - Clone Trooper - If it's a clone wars version, then yes!

(repack) - C-3PO - Maybe, but not tokeep as is. If it's a repaint of tyhe ROTS version I'll get it to make custom protocol droids.

(repack) - Poggle the lesser - nope

(repack) - Jango Fett - Too bad it's not a new sculpt (It may be, as this is just a rumor!), cause I was hoping to get an SA Jango Fett. Guess my hopes were for nothing. hey, at least we're getting a Republic Commando.

(repack) - Yoda - nope.

This is the "official" rumor list for the Attack Of The Clones Wave:
- Clone Trooper
- Sora Bulq: Weequay Jedi
- Sun Fac: Geonosian Leader
- C-3PO
- Poggle the lesser: Geonosian Leader
- Jango Fett
- Republic Commando
- Yoda

OK, so what/who is the Republic Commando?  Is this the video game type clone or what???  I know it's just a rumor list but...

Aside from Sora Bulq, nothing here interests me terribly. I may go for the Commando, if he's done well. It's a shame though, I like many, was hoping for a SA Jango and Windu. Oh well, maybe some day.

RS updated with the 411 on this wave, which we basically already knew, but it does suggest the 3-PO has interchangable heads for the Arena scene.  Since I'm OK with the one they did before, I'll pass on him.  And probably Sun Fac too, since I can't really say I ever cared.

Hmmm... I think they are making a mistake by putting out two different Geonosians at the same time... same goes for the 3PO.  I see that as a pegwarmer. 

Overall, this looks to me like only three figures will be sought after really - the Clone Commando, the SA Clone and the Sora Bulq.

For myself, here's what I *plan* on getting -

Clone Trooper - several, 5-6 probably

Sora Bulq: Weequay Jedi - at least 2-3 of them

Sun Fac: Geonosian Leader - 1-2 of this figure

C-3PO - might pass...

Poggle the lesser: Geonosian Leader - probably pass

Jango Fett - pass

Republic Commando - several probably, about 6 of them

Yoda - pass

Well I was really hoping for Bultar Swan but I'll take 3 Sora Bulqs, one carded, one loose and one for dark jedi customization

Republic Commandos - I can see them making them one per case and making different variants of each just to piss us off even more. Other than that Im very stoked.

Clone Trooper - Hasbro you must make these the CW SA Trooper.

Yoda- pass

Jango- pass

C3P0 - pass

Poggle the Lesser - pass

Sun Fac- pass
I remember my dream now.

This wave is pretty weak overall.  And I agree with Chewie that the two Geonosians is about as smart as the two recent Neimodians.

Agreed that this is shaping up to be a weaker looking wave if true...

The Clone Commando's good news to me, but I'm sort of surprised they ran with figures based on a luke-warm game as far as popularity goes...  It's not like Rep Commando is being ranked as a top game right now, but what do I know.

Sun Fac...  A Geonosian that maybe can stand or won't melt and fall over when it gets about 60 degrees?

The repacks in general are poor at best, especially Jango (good god, not again).

CW SA Clone has to be the Trooper should he ship...  If not, heads should roll. 

And that leaves the Weequay Jedi as the only thing of real interest on the list, haha.  :)

I'm really disappointed we're still not getting Bultar Swan. >:( Oh, well.

Unless they really screw these up...

*new* - Sora Bulq: Weequay Jedi - Yes.
*new* - Sun Fac: Geonosian Leader - I'll wait and see.
*new* - Republic Commando - At least one.
(repack) - Clone Trooper - I'll wait and see. It depends. I'd love an Utapau clone. (Yes, I know it's the 'Battle of Coruscant' wave, but so what? They put Gragra and podracer pilots in the Naboo wave.)
(repack) - C-3PO - I don't know...
(repack) - Poggle the lesser - No.
(repack) - Jango Fett - No.
(repack) - Yoda - No.

'Scum "confirmed" this will be a unique Commando from the game, "Scorch", instead of a generic dude. On the one hand I was hoping they'd do a plain one and a few variants based on the game, but on the other hand variants would surely be really hard to track down. But I'd be surprised if they didn't revisit this mold at some point in the future though ... if not as a running change then an EE set or something.

Also, their update has a conspicious lack of the clonetrooper goodness previously indicated. :-\
