I'd bought a couple of exclusive Clone Troopers on clearance to keep carded, but I've avoided this line beyond that. Well, I bought five figures to open last night. Picked up Anakin, Ahsoka, R2, Rex, and Gree.

Oy. Neutral
I haven't opened my Senate Security Trooper or the most recent wave yet, but otherwise, this is two months later:

That's a healthy collection of The Clone Wars figures so far. And I think a Nahdar Vebb figure would compliment your collection quite well, as well as some Commando Droids. I highly recommend these figures.

I've been thinking about the battle pack with Commando Droids. I hate the Battle Droids, so other than a couple of Destroyer Droids, those are as close as I would get to having any Separatist forces. I'd buy a Nahdar Vebb if I could get a good deal, but I don't want him enough to pay $20 or more. I'm waiting on a buddy to come through with a Bossk. That's a character I'd really like to have.

I would say that Vebb is worth $20 - to me, at least. Also, if you are so inclined, I would like a few extra commando droids. So if you only want one from that battle pack, I would buy the other ones off of you in a heartbeat. And I surely hope you do get that Bossk figure, because he is a really sweet. It's a shame that Hasbro didn't smack him on a cardback and release him as part of the basic line. I blew $80 of my Christmas money just to get the exclusive figures in that pack.

If he'd had more time to develop as a character, I might be willing to pay a premium. He ended up being essentially a throwaway character, though.

I tend to be an army builder, but I'll let you know if I get a set and end up not liking them very much.

I'm 100% positive Bossk, Aayla Secura, Hondo Ohnaka, and any other figures not readily available to kids and collectors will see another release eventually. Hasbro doesn't often miss a chance to get the most out of a tooling investment.

Oh, if I were a betting man, I would put my money on the fact that you will like the figure. It really is a good one.

I definitely liked the Commando Droids better on the show.

Yes, but they are the commando droids that Bane used in season one, so they have a different color scheme than the standard Separatist commando droid. These two figures came in the "Hostage Crisis" battle pack.

Gotcha. I thought they looked different than what I saw the other day, but I remember them from that pack now that you mention it. All my local Targets are choking on that set.

Thank you, Bob! And definitely hook CC up with a Nahdar Vebb figure! He needs one for his collection.
