Our Rebel Spies are taking a well-deserved rest this week, gearing up for another year of trying to slice into the holonet and get some intercepted transmissions on the latest Star Wars
toys. So, while we don't have a whole lot of rumors to talk about at the moment (it's been a long year, after all...!), some new info has surfaced recently that confirms some new vehicles for 2009. The Clone Wars
A pair of new listings over at Entertainment Earth have confirmed one vehicle (which was already confirmed back in July at SDCC) and also revealed a so-far-unseen vehicle from the Star Wars: The Clone Wars
animated series. Magnaguard Fighter Vehicles
- This ship is flown by General Grievous' bodyguards and may look a bit familiar to fans of the concept art for Revenge of the Sith
, but this will be an all-new vehicle. This was confirmed by Hasbro during the presentation at San Diego Comic-Con. Super Vulture Droid Vehicle
- A new ship that we haven't seen yet? This seems to be the case. A new ship that looks like the Trade Federation Droid Fighters (or Vulture Droids, if you prefer)...only larger and able to fit some Battle Droids? Sweet! There's also a LEGO Hyena Droid Bomber coming soon that may be what this ship is.
Okay, you want some rumors? How's this:
Clone Trooper Pilot (repaint)
Obi-Wan Kenobi (added articulation)

As with any rumor list, take this all with a grain of salt, because it's not official, and may just be idle speculation. But that's part of the fun of being a fan, isn't it?
