    Woot! It looks like we'll be getting a Commander Cody figure later this year after all!

    This is excellent. Now I can complete my army of Clones. [face_mischief]:D

    I am assuming this will be an animated version as the 3 packs mentioned are in honour of the DVD release of Clone Wars V.2? Can anyone confirm? If so, it does not help me as I choose not to collect the animated figures.:(

    I can't confirm it, but I that's the same conclusion I came to, DarthVictor7. The announcement threw me off because it would seem to me that they'd need to make an entirely new figure for Cody and couldn't use an existing form (though I may be wrong, I didn't follow the animated line too closely), and these multipacks seems to be repacks more often than not. I'll be interested to see some pictures.

    I wasn't sure which type of figures these were going to be. If it's the animated version, then we'll be getting an all new Saesse Tiin, and Commander Cody. They also list a regular Clonetrooper as well.

    As I remember him, Cody appeared once in the cartoon dressed in RotS Clonetrooper armor, but with a jet pack. I wonder if they'll have an all new RotS helmet sculpt for him and the regular Clonetrooper that comes with one of the sets.

    This doesn't seem likely to me because usually all these sets are just re-packs. :confused:

    It'll probably be the animated version, since they released packs of three like this in conjunction with the Volume 1 DVD release.

    Again, I have to ask if these will really be new figures since in the past it's been all re-sculpts.

    Probably. I thought I remembered reading the Episode III Cody wouldn't be out until next year sometime.

    I also think it's the animated version. Hopefully Obi-Wan will also be in his Clone armor then.

    As for the standard Cody action figure, I do hope Hasbro makes an entirely new figure, instead of just a repaint.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say that if they are animated they will be new sculpts. There were rumors of another go at the animated line long, long ago. They mentioned that there would be packs of them and that there would be some new sculpts in there.

    We'll have to see. This could be very cool or it could be one of the many times that cargo bay has gotten a little confused.

    BTW in the catoon Cody did have the same helmet style as he did in ROTS. It was just "shot" straight on when we saw him.

    Nobody said we don't get one...it sounds like we're getting at least an animated figure, and the word was that the Saga line might be giving us the regular one later on...

    I might be mistaken, but I thought they released some non-animated based figs that had the tagline "clone wars."

    They did, though that was a while back. There was some discussion about those figures not too long ago on one of the other threads here...

    There were non-animated clone wars figures but what we're seeing points to these being animated.

    Rebelscum had a Q&A about them today and they mentioned that the Tinn might be a retooled Mace which IMO would be cool as hell. Mace's pose was just about perfect so Tinn's would be as well. It would be really nice if he had the helmet but I don't think I'm going to hold my breath on that one.

    If its going to be labled "Clone Wars Volume 2" then I hope it in the animated style.

    An animated style General Kenobi with trooper outfit, Comander Cody, and General Grievous (even though I have G) would be sweet.

    So would a Volume 2 styled Anakin (longer hair), Trooper (RotS mask), and Saesee Tiin.

    Live action style- I wouldn't need the other figures, just a Cody. I do hope they release more single carded troopers.

    They do list the three [link=http://cargobay.starwars.com/webapps/cargobay/item-detail/18249]pack of villins[/link] and the three [link=http://cargobay.starwars.com/webapps/cargobay/item-detail/18248/15452]Jedi pack[/link]as being "DVD commemerative". Those are re-packs of the Animated figures. Hmmm. [face_thinking] I guess it could go either way.

    Rebelscum has some pictures of an animated cody that they think is the cody in question.

    I'd say thats it. :D

    I like the re-tooled ST too. Can't wait to see Anakin and the others.

    Edit: BTW here are the picks. http://www.rebelscum.com/article.asp?i=95043

    Commander Cody and the Clonetrooper look excellent. I'm hoping Saesse Tiin is in all his Outer-space battle glory. This also gives me hope that the Anakin and Obi-wan figures may also be RotS Animated style. Now if only they'd re-paint a Republic Gunship in the snarling war-paint style featured in the opening of the Second Season.

    Yeah, it looks like all thats getting re-used is the bodies. I'm really looking forward to these now. I'm sure we're going to get an excellent Anakin, Obi, and maybe just maybe a really nice helmeted Tiin.

    That's pretty cool...I haven't seen most of the CW cartoons, but that paint job looks just like the cartoon. The new animated figs look good too...
