More new Clone Troopers and all sorts of craziness can be seen in this new 30-second spot shown to fans at Wondercon over the weekend. Since my crack research team tells me that, statistically, you were not likely to be there, you may wish to see it.
And to think, the season 3 finale of The Clone Wars just aired in the USA last night! Wasting no time, the official site posted a 30-second teaser showing off season 4. R2-D2 & C-3PO get hit by some net, we see a Mon Calamari warlord (heck, it might even be Ackbar) and loads of Clones. In short, it looks good! Check it out.
New! More or less. The Army of the Republic Battle Pack has 4 Clone Troopers, based on the 2009 revision of the figure. (Which is to say, the basic 2008-2009 body with the resculpted basic helmet. But what figures do you get? Read on!
The upcoming Republic Attack Shuttle is this year's BIG ship featuring plenty of features in vehicle and battle mode. Check out this Hasbro Toy Fair showroom video demonstrating its many capabilities. The pricepoint is $79.99, includes a pack-in Clone, and is slated for release this fall. Enjoy!
EW previews an exclusive trailer for the second half of The Clone Wars Season 3 making its debut on January 7th. After the mostly pastoral first half, the rest of the season looks to be spectacular! Click here for the trailer!
Sony teams up with Hasbro to promote their Clone Wars Adventures online game. Basic The Clone Wars and Saga Legends action figure blisters are being affixed with stickers touting a 30 day trial membership and 450 Station Cash. These stickers are showing up at Toys R Us stores this week.
As if you even need anymore reason to attend a FREE screening of The Clone Wars on the big screen, fans attending the theatrical event will also receive a FREE one sheet poster featuring the new series villain, Savage Opress, in 30's style "classic horror" art.
Being that this is a limited event, this should prove to be a great piece of collectible memorabilia and/or wall art. Read the full story at StarWars.com.
Seen in the premiere episode of Season 2, "Holocron Heist", Cato Parasitti shares the same Clawdite heritage as one Zam Wessel and shapeshifts her way into the Jedi temple. Her well sculpted and finely painted figure includes a molded helmet with a movable visor.
From the super intense and action packed "Landing at Point Rain" episode from Season 2, Clone Trooper Draa bears distinct markings as a member of the 41st Elite Corps. While the figure is a repainted version of the basic Clone Trooper mold and comes with several weapons and accessories including a missile launcher and backpack.
MMMM…BRAINS! This Season 2 storyline about zombie Geonosian Warriors had that sci-fi horror twist to it and “jumping the shark” potential, but it somehow worked. With removable wings and body parts, the figure has nice pose and play ability, but the cool factor would have been upped a notch if Hasbro somehow could have included a brain worm accessory.
Inspired by Kurosawa, the samurai-esque Kyuzo bounty hunter Embo includes an articulated bowcaster, throwing knives, a boatload of paint detail, and plenty of bushido spirit (or is that boshuda?). The excellent “Bounty Hunters” episode in Season 2 had plenty of nods to Seven Samurai, which in turn was one of Lucas’ inspirations for Star Wars.
Fan favorite Jedi Quinlan Vos gets his Clone Wars plastic treatment just in time for his recent appearance in the excellent “Hunt for Ziro” episode. Featuring nifty painted tats, a soft goods skirt, and additional hip articulation so that you can pose him nicely on his speederboard, which we assume will be seen in a future episode, Vos will not disappoint.
Lucasfilm and The Cartoon Network will be presenting limited theatrical screenings for a sneak peek at the new and mysterious villain, Savage Oppress. The screenings are FREE in select cities with an RSVP and those who attend are asked to bring a new/unwrapped toy for children in need this holiday season.
The Clone Wars Sgt. Bric Mailaway figure with Battle Mat is now showing up in mailboxes across the nation. Curatola01 reports his delivery today and sends us a couple of photos for your perusal.
Obi-Wan's droid finally gets plasticized Clone Wars style with great paint apps using the R3-S6 "Goldie" mold. If you like your droids, plan on picking this one up!
