Basic Figures

The Legacy Collection:

The Legacy Collection Basic Figure line will continue on until the relaunch that is scheduled for this summer.  The numbering sequence appears to be in place to continue from 2008's BD # series through what should be BD #55.

Notable items in the near term will include multiple running changes in WAVE 6 - THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK.  There will be multiple versions of both the Hoth Rebel Soldier and the Ugnaught.  Even though they will be 4 distinct figures, they will only be assigned a total of 2 BD numbers.  Additionally the Build-A-Figure droid for this wave will be U-3PO from the Tantive IV in A NEW HOPE, and not HK-47 as mentioned in the Q&A process.

Officially announced today are the lineups for WAVE 7 - ATTACK OF THE CLONES and WAVE 8 - THE PHANTOM MENACE.  The lineups for these waves had been rumored for some time and we've seen hints through the Q&A process.  Hasbro's presentation nails down the lineups for both waves, and also fills us in on the Build-A-Figure droids for both waves.  HK-47 will be the Build-A-Figure for WAVE 7 - ATTACK OF THE CLONES and L8-L9 from the Clone Wars microserries will be the Build-A-Figure for  WAVE 8 - THE PHANTOM MENACE

There are a couple of interesting notes regarding WAVE 8 - THE PHANTOM MENACE.  First, as a point of clarification, while Hasbro showed a Ratts Tyerell in their slide for WAVE 8 - THE PHANTOM MENACE, that character's slot has been taken by another pod racer, Clegg Holdfast (not pictured).  An issue arose with Ratts Tyerell prompting him to be bumped back to a later wave.  Additionally, 2009 is the 10th Anniversary of the release of STAR WARS EPISODE I - THE PHANTOM MENACE.  In celebration of the 10th Anniversary of Episode I, Hasbro will be launching a special promotion for WAVE 8 - THE PHANTOM MENACE.  Promotional stickers called "The mark of Darth Maul" will be on Basic Figures starting with this wave (in stores around September '09).  Those stickers will be redeemable for a Qui-Gon Jinn with Eopie.  The Qui-Gon and Eopie are re-decoed versions of previous releases.  Qui-Gon Jinn is based on the Evolutions release, and the Eopie is a repainted version of the scarce EPISODE I release.

Another major note to consider is that the RETURN OF THE JEDI wave which had been discussed in depth in the most recent edition of the Star Wars Insider has been slid back. Hasbro had originally indicated that this wave might be the 4th wave to ship in 2009, but based on the shipping dates given for the waves announced at today's presentation the RETURN OF THE JEDI will ship in the new packaging which is slated to launch some time after August of this year.

Not counting the current WAVE 5 - A NEW HOPE figures which are shipping now, Hasbro projects that there will be a total of 46 figures offered as LEGACY COLLECTION Basic Figures.  The current announced lineup includes:

WAVE 5 - A NEW HOPE - 8 FIGURES
BD# 30 - Luke Skywalker in Stormtrooper Disguise

The Clone Wars:

Hasbro's CLONE WARS line was a tremendous success in 2008.  And Hasbro is following that success up with an aggressive plan for 2009.  So what's in store?

The CLONE WARS Basic Figure line is currently scheduled for 37 figures over the course of 2009.  Thus far, Hasbro has revealed 25 of those figures (26 if you count the 2 Jawas in that 2-pack). 

Additionally, the line will be relaunched with the new package design in preparation for the new season of the Clone Wars animated series.  Based on carded images of figures in the new packaging, the CW numbering scheme will be reset at that time.  The complete numbering scheme has yet to be revealed.  But a carded Obi-Wan Kenobi figure on display in the Hasbro showroom may indicate a wave of refresh figures from the initial offerings of the 2008 CLONE WARS line.

So what's the 2009 CLONE WARS lineup?
