Evo Vader and Bespin Sculpt Vader both kneel perfectly.  I think my Bespin one I have in a kneeling pose with his head tilted down like he's bowing to the holographic image... 

This is awesome news I think...  Some of the coolest stuff out of TF this year. :)  Kickin' rear end on that.  I've always felt that was iconic, and would dig a display for that moment.

Doesn't the Bespin Vader have the flip-up cod-piece like the VOTC figure? I guess if Vader is happy to see the Emperor that figure would work just fine.  ;D

For the guys attending the event, did you see or ask if the tail swings down into position UNDER the ship? That is how it's supposed to fly.

Good catch Sal - why didn't they hang it up with the tail wing in the lowered position? It makes me wonder if it pivots down at all. (I know they told you it did Jeff, but they could have just been talking about the left and right wings)

I can't believe that this is all they showed.  If they wanted to give the idea that the CW3D show will be huge, and in the theaters, they should have shown all of the figures they are making!  I can't believe that they'll have a Midnight Madness for 8 figures and 3 ships...

Is a midnight madness on 7/26 official? Also, from the Hasbro presentation report, it looks like only the Homing Spider Droid and the V-19 will be avaialble on the 26th of July, the AT-TE will be released later during the holiday shopping season. At least according to this report on Galactic Hunter:

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / Re: Clone Wars Preview Figure - Captain Rex

It's interesting how his kama doesn't go all the way around...I wonder if that's a playability thing, and will allow him to sit in ships?

Unless the kama is made of the most flexible plastic in the world or cloth, I'm afraid Captain Rex will suffer the same problems that all Clones w/kamas face - the inability to sit down. It probably just matches how he looks in the cartoon.

Oh - okay, so it's a Clone Wars line battle pack. That's okay I guess. Good for me a suppose, it means I only have to pick up two and not three or four.

I really like (and appreciate) the R2-D2. That is one incarnation of our favorite little astromech that has never appeared as a toy. Granted it only appears in Star Wars for a few seconds, it's still nice to have. Now all we need is the "swiss army knife" version from ROTJ and every possible R2 variation will have been covered.

If the BARC Trooper featured a cammo deco or a green tint (LIKE EVERY OTHER Kashyyyk themed trooper to date) then that set would make sense. Right now, it looks like nothing more than a Commander Neyo figure.  :-\

It looks to me that Ten Nuib uses the base TAC A-Wing pilot body (which is probably the reason why he is so tall compared to others of his species).

I had a feeling that they were going to do something like this with the B-Wing pilot since they put so much detail into the Tycho figure, it only made sense.

Maybe that K-3PO uses the C-3PO Endor Throne sculpt? That would definitely fit with all of the articulation we see.

I'm also guessing that it will feature either a pre-posed Vader that is kneeling or the Evolutions Vader since that one can probably kneel the best out of any of the Vader figures. But I agree - this will be where we get the Holo Emperor head.

*ugh* more sets exclusive to WalMart? When the regular Comic 2-pack line features some real gems, it's almost embarassing when they put out stuff like this along side it.

Actually it does matter, doesn't it?  Don't we have a hood down version at the moment, not hood up? 

We got the 2 "hood down" versions  (brown & blue) in 2007, we'll get the two "hood up" versions (brown & blue) in 2008.  Like they said, one in the new Hoth BP (with Chew/Probe Droid/astro droid/K-3PO) and the other in the WM Droid FActory Pack.

So the Battle pack figure will be different from the Droid Factory figure? (i.e. blue coat vs. brown coat) - that's good to hear. I'm glad we're finally getting a VOTC quality version of Han Solo in Hoth Gear w/the Hood Up and the icing on the cake is that we're going to get both coat colors too. Cool!

Hey - did Hasbro indicate that the Legacy Collection figures will come with bases too? Or because there is a piece of a droid with each figure, that's considered the pack-in and we're back to not getting bases again with the figures.

If that ends up being the case, I hope that Hasbro decides to continue to offer boxes of bases, but instead of having it be a mix of all movies and two EU bases, I think they need to start making bases that are solid for each movie. So you get the "Empire Strikes Back" figure stand set and in that set it comes with labels that are all characters from ESB, etc... This way, folks could get a box of all EU bases which will certainly come in handy with giving bases to all of the Comic 2-pack figures, EU figures in the Evolutions sets and bases to EU-inspired figures in the regular line.

The winner in the Padme set is the AOTC outfit that she wore during the back-half of the movie. We've needed a really good version of that outfit for some time and I'm glad we're getting it as part of the Evolutions set.

I am kinda disappointed by the other two though - I had hoped that whatever they did for TPM or ROTS, the outer "gowns" would be soft-goods to allow the figures to sit. I have a throne that is part of the Queen's Starship that has remained EMPTY for almost ten years now because they refuse to give us a version of Queen Amidala which is anything but a salt-shaker with some arms. So the Pre-Senate Gown Amidala is a bit of a let-down.

The night-gown Padme has thrown me completely, the scene where she has the bun-hairdo was what I was sure they were going to put in this set. I guess the night-gown scene was pretty important too, but again, since they couldn't sculpt a naked Padme and then make the night-gown soft-goods, I really don't feel that this figure is up-to-snuff when it comes to Evolutions/Vintage quality.

Is it just me or does Ten Nuib look a little tall? Something tells me that we're going to get this exact same body with a human head and a smaller helmet packed in with the B-Wing vehicle that's exclusive to TRU.
