I like that quite a bit, but I think another release of the standard 2011 Ahsoka would have made more sense.

Agreed, since that one was quite difficult for many collectors to find at retail. But I think that this figure is the reason why S3 Ahsoka is not being released in 2012.

Agreed

Also agree, since I never saw it.

If I remember correctly, I only saw that Ahsoka figure three times at retail, each time only at Walmart. Also, I only saw the armored version of Savage Opress two times, each time only at Target.

And when I think about this, it typically makes me wonder why Hasbro chose some of the figures that they did for their 2012 repacks. Why Sno Plo instead of S3 Ahsoka? Why the first version of Cad Bane instead of the second one? And why the shirtless version of Savage Opress when the armored version was so hard to find - and the character is making another appearance on the show this week, featured only in his armor.

Inquiring minds want to know! 33

I never saw her at retail. I only have her because I bought her on eBay after my fourth or fifth trip to Walmart to look for that wave. That was more than enough of that.

I believe I saw him three times at three different Target locations.

They really did make some peculiar decisions with the 2012 lineup. While the older Cad Bane hangs in new packaging for $8 or $9 (whatever they cost now), I grabbed two of the newer CW42 versions for Toys For Tots at $1.50 a couple weeks ago.

Yep. If I am not mistaken, they are made from the same body mold. The only difference between the two are the helmets (which I suspect are non-removeable) and the paint schemes.

That's from a collector in the Phillipines. So, we're probably still six to twelve weeks out from seeing these in the States. Keep in mind that there hasn't even been a hint of wave 2 showing up yet.
