        It's interesting that they're setting this during the Clone Wars but doing it in a completely different style than the show. I kind of wonder if this might be a test for further specials, as we already know that the Lego Star Wars combo is a popular one.

      Out of the 19 figures announced or released so far in this line, only 4 of them have been from the prequels, so I think you'll survive.

      2 per case of Toryn Farr is a horrible idea. If ever there was an argument for shortpacking, it's Ms. Boring MacDoesNothing.
