I definitely would've been pumped for anything Dathomir related...highly doubt we'll get anything along those lines tho...

i will admit, i'd probably pick up four of those 501st troopers, but thats about it for me....

Guys don't be silly dathomir figures would be new and interesting, when Hasbro knows whats best. They know that kids want the same figures as last year but tweaked, not new characters that they don't have... A dathomir Ventress or witch would mean an all new sculpt and the possibility of full articulation...

The Clone Wars line is as good as dead in my opinion... I think this was probably part of Hasbro's strategy, to phase it out and invest less and less in the line as the show neared completion.

I would think they are focusing on righting the ship on the regular basic line now, and alligning resources for Episode 7... which tells me the first half of 2015 is going to suck at retail, but once those new figures start shipping, holy crap!

This first wave is just Hasbros idea of keeping something on the pegs, I agree that the line feels dead for the most part. What I find strange is that Hasbro would think all these core characters are going to be bought by new fans just finding the show now. The ratings actually slipped, didnt they? I dont think many new CW fans are coming in, the kids and collectors that buy the line have been around for years - and we already own those characters...

Just been looking again at the pictures of these and realised the R2 uses the R7 D4 mold, so has the BAD thing going on.

The R2 is actually a nice figure, and I like that its a BAD, but it would have been nice to get an astro droid that we dont have yet. Same goes for Maul and Savage - those BPs were at Target for awhile, so kids and collectors should have got their fill - the Maul / Savage figures should have been retooled into their season 5 outfits...

I suppose the Maul and Savage is good for other countries as the BP and the previous release of Savage didn't get around the world at general retail. And from one of my local sci fi shops no one is eager to get the BP at £29.99, i know am waiting till i find it cheaper.

no new Clone Wars figures were shown at Toy Fair 2013. Arnie from Star Wars Action News asked what is their current status, they say that the animated style figures are on hold. Realistic version will make their way into the other line

from Galactic Hunter:

Clone Wars figures shown at CVI will not be released in US.

:cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:
The news is just coming out of the New York Toy Fair, guys.

The Clone Wars line is effectively dead. It's history after this first wave of 2013 in the green Yoda packaging.

Five years of great figures are coming to a lethargic and disappointing end. :( :cry:
