I've heard (from several sites) that there was a commander fox in the line up for this year... is this true? I didn't see him at the toy fair....So rumor or fact? He was said to be in wave 3 or 4.

Yes, it is rumored that Commander Fox will be coming later in the year. A product list from Walmart was leaked to several collecting sites, and Fox was listed on it, along with cybernetic Darth Maul. So, that means that we now have a definitive list for all 19 figures for 2012. You can find that list on this page:

I'm just speculating here, but I would bet that Hasbro did not have permission to show their figure of the cybernetic Maul. The design of his lower half has been kept a secret by LFL up until this point, and I really doubt that they would have given Hasbro the green light to reveal this design before it had a chance of being debuted on the show. As for Fox? I would say that Hasbro is holding him back so that they have something to show at SDCC, along with the last mini-rig of the year.

Comic-Con is usually around the third week of July. I'm hoping that we'll see a sneak preview of a few things we can expect to see in 2013. But mostly, I want to know how and when Hasbro is going to be releasing General Krell. He's really the only figure that I'm excited about for this year (or next).

I, too, would love to see Keeli and Fil. And, they would be nothing more than a repaint at this point, so I could see Hasbro shoving them into a Battle Pack, or something like that. But if they do make Keeli, my desire to see Master Di will reach a fevered pitch again.

Very Happy

If Hasbro were to release Fil and Keeli using the Rex mold from late 2011, then I would be as happy as a pig in mud. I am not a fan of the original clone mold from 2008; but, I love the Rex mold from late 2011. If they were to use that mold from this point forward (instead of the mold that they are using on 2012's Rex and Wolffe), then you wouldn't hear a complaint from me.

yeah... put which 2011 captain rex? o.O lol. there are so many rex's out atm. they should move on and stop wasting on him. they could have had so many new clones out if they didn't keep making rexs!

anyways, the scult they use now is RUBBISH! no waist articulation?! they are really down grading everything. if it keeps up I don't see point in buying them. soon we'll have no articulation at all. The movie heros have terrible articulation also. they didn't enhance or change anything about them, they just dug up the old mold and re sold them imo Sad

Actually, this Rex figure was in the basic line of figures:

He does have a swivel waist joint. But, he does not have ankle joints. No bother for me, though, since I just absolutely love this figure. For me, he is the definitive version of Rex in his phase 1 armor. Here's an informative review over at JTA:

ah jetpack one... I see Smile
He would be awesome if he had all the articulation as say the clone commander wolffe or fox. I prefer the ball jointed waist and ankles over swivel...
