For me, Rex is the top priority from this wave. I'm gonna pass on the Aayla figure, unless Hasbro improved the paint apps for her face (as they said they might do). I can't say that I care a lick for that Commando figure, since we have never really seen those guys in action in the show. And the Obi-Wan looks to be a new sculpt, which I am would like to see in greater detail. Perhaps at TF next month.

Obi-Wan is the only figure from this wave I am unlikely to buy.

Now that I know Rex lacks any knee articulation, I may pass on him, too. I am curious, however, as to whether or not it would be possible to swap his legs with those from the last version we got.

I will buy them all. I see Secura stole Jango's jetpack and repainted it. Sneaky devil!

ok, so correct me if I'm wrong. Captain Rex is fully atriculated as normal from the waist up correct? then his hips move, but no knee or ankles?

Rex does not have wrist articulation, either. Everything else should be the same, except we're waiting to see if the helmet is removable.

removable helmet is the only thing that will redeem this figure for me :/ do you think they will re release him at any time? like they did with all the other ones? just with a differant sculpt...

Do I think that phase 2 Rex will be resculpted in the future? It's anybody's guess. But I bet that Hasbro will use this mold for all Rex releases for some time to come, either in a Battle Pack or on a basic card.

well, I think I'll hold out for a resculpt, and if it becomes apparent that they are indeed not making one, swoop by and catch this on clearance Wink

If this were 2010, then I would say that you should definitely hold out for a resculpt, but seeing that it's 2012... Crying or Very sad

Anyway, here's the case assortment for wave 2, according to JTA:

1x Republic Commando Boss
1x Anakin Skywalker
1x Clone Trooper (Phase II)
1x Captain Rex (New Helmet)
1x Obi-Wan Kenobi
1x Commander Cody (Flight Pack)
1x Plo Koon
1x Aqua Battle Droid
1x Savage Opress
1x Cad Bane
1x Yoda
1x Aayla Secura
