    It also looks like they've altered the likenesses from the animated series?? Something looks off about those two figures. I get the "darker" variants but the animation likeness is putting me off of them. Do we know if we're getting another Ahsoka?

    No Ahsoka has been announced for 2013 as of yet, although the New York Toy Fair isn't until next month and anything's possible.

    A photo has just hit the Web showing the entire Wave 1 of Clone Wars for this year. These are in multilingual overseas packaging but the American cardbacks will be very similar.

    The Commander Cody in the second row is a straight repack of the new 2012 figure with no apparent changes.

    Well, I was going to have a pic taken of me in my new glasses, so I could just add the necklace, too. :p

    In the Doctor Who Figure Thread someone shared pics from the London Toy Fair for the upcoming 2013 Doctor Who line which looks simply fantastic. I think I'm going to be picking up a bunch of the 3.75 figures, including the new companion Clara which look terrific! I've been putting off getting Who figures but I kind of dig the notion of 3.75 (I don't think they've been issued in this format before).

    I've never collected the Doctor Who figures but based on the UK Toy Fair pictures it seems a lot more love and care went into the Who line than Hasbro's put into Star Wars for the first half of this year. Those pics do look great!

    I haven't done an adventures of Clintasha in a while...but today I did one to address the weird rumors that Jeremy Renner has a baby mama out there (it's actually his dad and stepmom having a baby)!

    Hawkeye finds something in his nest...What. What. WHAT.

    GET. THEM. OFF.

    My story is that Tony Stark borrowed the babies to prank Clint.

    They look like they might be from Christmas nativity scenes but I'm probably wrong.

    They're party favors for baby showers. I found them at Michaels. I use them for collage and scrapbooking.

    "Ok, we'll name this one Clint Jr. and this one Natasha Jr. Then one of them can be called Kate, oh and I guess we'll have to name one of them Tony, to keep him happy so that he won't release those blackmail pictures."

    Tony Stark: "Oh, great. Babies. Does it look like Fury's gonna spot for a nursery around here?"

    Hey, Stark is the one with the money! He can be their godfather if it makes him feel any better.

    Now I have plans for all my Avengers with the babies! "No Hulk! Don't smash babies!" :eek:

    I imagine Thor laughing at the one about to hit Clint in the head and saying "Haha! I like this one. It has spirit!"

    Will be the look for most Star Wars toys and collectible merchandise starting in July or August. The green Yoda look will be retained mostly by LEGO until the end of the year while almost everything else will switch over to this design.

    It kinda reminds me of the packaging for the Episode III line in color, and emphasis on Vader. I don't exactly like it, though. I think it looks goofy.
