Preview: Clone Wars 2012 Wave 1 (Carded)

By Mike — Monday, January 9, 2012

What street date? Walmart continues to put out Star Wars 2012 merchandise while Target and ToysRUs stores remain barren. I'm not a market economist or a bean counter, but if I have product lingering in the back stock not selling, it's hurting the bottom line. It's not like it's going to spoil a 12 year old movie for us. But I digress.

Clone Wars Wave 1 consists of mostly re-issued figures with the new being Anakin Skywalker, Clone Trooper Phase II, and Commander Cody with Propulsion Pack. Chewbacca has been repainted lighter from his 2011 version to be more accurate to the series character. We present all of them except for CW3 Savage Opress, who continues to be the elusive one for hunters even with this re-issue. 

Hasbro announced only 19 Clone Wars figures for 2012 meaning there are only 9 more for Wave 2 and prompting a few questions as to the future of the line and perhaps the series. One thing's for certain and that's this action figure line is only getting better. From the standpoint of design and execution, Hasbro brought out their A game. Let's hope they announce and reveal more for Clone Wars at Toy Fair next month.

These were found at a Walmart store in San Diego, CA. The pricepoint is $8.97.

Here's the rundown:

CW1 Anakin Skywalker
CW2 Clone Trooper Phase III Armor
CW3 Savage Opress
CW4 Cad Bane
CW5 Yoda
CW6 Plo Koon
CW7 Commander Cody
CW8 Mace Windu
CW9 Chewbacca
CW10 Aqua Droid
