The Clone Wars marked the beginning of an era eclipsed by darkness and rebellious turmoil. Previously enjoying an age of peace and progress, the Republic and Jedi Order both became too complacent and self-assured of their advanced sense of enlightenment. As our own history has shown us time and again, that is usually the point where mistakes are made. ones that can spiral into cataclysm if left unchecked.

Interestingly enough, the inaugural wave of The Clone Wars Collection seems to mirror that rise and fall for Hasbro. After enjoying a renaissance of sorts with the 30th Anniversary Collection, the toy goliath appears to have become careless with the quality of their Star Wars brand. The first two reviews for this line (Yoda and General Grievous) demonstrated a lack of foresight in the design process and a drop in production quality. Despite this being its inception, the Clone Wars line is already teetering on the edge between success and failure.

Not all of the initial figures are disappointments though. There are some bright stars in the void, figures that could herald a saving grace for this collection if future waves contain items of their caliber.

Todayís review deals with one of those stars: R2-D2.

Great write up Jeff.

I like the little Christmas bulbs on R2's legs.
