There's more Toy Fair
action coming to you tonight with the official Hasbro Star Wars The Clone Wars Press Photos
in glorious hi-rez detailed glory. Check out the basic figures, deluxe mini-rig style vehicles, and a new remote controlled droid! The Clone Wars Basic Figures
The basic figures continue in 2010 with the "blue skies" blue & black cardbacks, which Hasbro is dubbing "Shadow of the Dark Side". The characters are not quite in synch with the TV show, but they are getting closer. And since we know that Hasbro loves Mandalorians, it's a good bet that they are excited by the recent storylines involving those that wear the T-shaped visors! Look for a lot more Jedi, clones, droids, and yes, even some cool alien bounty hunters appearing in the line this year.
A new aspect for both The Clone Wars and Saga Legends in 2010 is the inclusion of stands. But not just any stands. These will have a card game element added to the figures, as well as a die that will help kids and adults determine "who beats who" in the battling adventures. blaster and lightsaber sound effects can be created by your own discretion. ;)Mini-Rigs
The new Deluxe line of smaller sized vehicles with action figures continue with repaints of earlier toys, but also some neat brand-new ships that truly live up to the "mini-rig" name...Vehicles
The vehicle repaints continue, along with some new ships, all falling under the TCW banner. But there's a cool new vehicle-sized droid coming out....a remote-controlled Hailfire Droid! Roll this baby across the floor and knock down all of your clones! And since you'll need a lot of clones to knock down, there are some more troop builder battle packs planned, one for each side.
But no Mandalorian battle packs.....yet
