So is the Clone Wars line done?

Unfortunately yes it is. There are even rumors that the 2013 wave (and Movie Heroes too) will only be released in Europe. It even sounds like the realistic Rex and Mace won't be released, which peeves me off. Rex was one of only five figures from the canceled Legacy Collection that I was truly interested in. @grumpy@ There will still be realistic style CW figures in the Saga Legends line though.

Dude I have been dreaming of 6 inch ML style SW and GI Joe for years!! @loll@ I have not bought much SW the last 3 years or so from lack of interest. This totally brings the interest right back.

I agree. His eyes look too big, cartoony and "nice."

I'll still get him, as he's my favorite from this first wave, but his eyes are definitely off.

the 6 inchers look AMAZING. I love the first wave and they are all must haves. I am even okay with Darth Maul's plastic/cloth combo. Glad they went with mostly plastic

the 3 3/4 inch "black" line looks dumb. I don't know why they are sticking with that old articulation. What is the point of the new label if the figures are going to be the same figures they have been releasing in the vintage line.
