    hey i was just wondering if any of you know if they will be making any action figures of the clone wars characters particularly Vasajj ventress and the ARC troopers and if so if they would make them in that animation style or the type we see in the Episode 2 figures that are on the shelves now?

    They are making Clone War figures. But I'm not sure if it's after the cartoon. But I've seen them and they look like their movie versions. Yoda is really cool! And the ARC Troopers are getting figures!

    Yes, I've seen photos of the Clone Wars figures. The clone trooper looks more articulated. Yoda seems to be wearing battle gear. They look to me though like the Saga figures. Not 'cartoony' at all. Theres a load of new vehicles too. Its different packaging aswell. I don't know whether they will be producing the two characters you mentioned, but I've heard rumours of a Sith Witch - so make your own mind up. I reckon they will surface in time. Hope I've helped.

    I think I saw photos on the REBELSCUM website. www.rebelscum.com - If you haven't been to this site then check it out - its cool. If they have been on Rebelscum's pages then they most probably have been on Theforce.net's pages too. Try looking in the collecting archive. They were part of a toy fair feature - can't remember which one though.

    The one thing that bugs me overall is the lack of coherence between the variaing CW related things.

    Comic, Game, and now action figure all show Anakin with the glove. So far the only pic we've see of Cartoon Anakin has just his gold hand.

    Uhm, that'snothing to complain about. I'd rater see him without the glove.

    'sides I'm betting he'll have the glove in the cartoon.

    I'd rather see him glove free too.

    I guess we'll just have to wait and see if the cartoon goes with what it established in the poster or what has been established before.

    So is Durge an Autobot or a Decepticon?

    I'm guessing that this means that Anakin will be sporting the black glove in Episode III...

    Hey everyone, Anakin will probably be wearing the glove in Episode 3, thats just my guess. It seems like it would be hard to fight with a hand like that, anyway I was wondering, have any of you bought or seen the new unleashed figures? I recently found Leia at Shop Ko(they also have a good buy one get one 50% off deal). so if any of you have found like Vader or Dooku unleashed if you could let me know that would be awesome. Thanks

    I think it still remains to be seen. Not to turn this into any kind of spoiler thing but I don't think we'll know for sure until we start seeing photos from the set. Black glove means black glove, blue glove means golden hand.

    Any word on the date these figures are released? Also, does anyone know if Lego is planning on making any sets based off of the cartoon?

    Looks like Oppo Rancisis (or however you spell his name).

    I compared it with an image of him in one of the prequels and you're right. The whole giant snake body really suprised me, to say the least.

    This should be in the [link=http://boards.theforce.net/board.asp?brd=10004]Collecting Forum[/link], but I have the new CW Yoda and ARC Trooper.


    Out Now:
    Yoda
    Anakin
    ARC Trooper

    Starting to show up now:
    Durge
    Obi-Wan
    Asajj Ventress
    Mace

    Wave 3:
    Kit Fisto
    Saesee Tiin
    Clone Trooper

    These are all movie-styled figures, however there are animated versions of Anakin, Obi-Wan, Asajj and Ventress coming out in a few months, they are an exclusive (KB I think).

    Hope this settles some questions :)

    Also, pics of the first 2 waves can be seen [link=http://www.rebelscum.com/CWfigures.asp]here[/link]
