Thanks JT and actionfigs.com for forwarding the questions! Mystery Phantom Wave 4 Lives!
Hasbro: Right now our plan is to just focus on Star Wars for the assortment for 2009 and beyond. We do not do comparisons across licenses, but we're very glad to have had the chance to produce some great Battlestar vehicles. The Cylon Basestar will be the last BSG Titanium vehicle released, coming out in the last wave this year.
Woo hoo... woot woot! It was looking like Hasbro were going to wind us up for months and then leave us without the Basestar (like the Outrider). Looks like there will be at least one more (as yet) unannounced Titanium wave before the end of the year, besides the 2 waves we haven't seen pics of yet.
Shame we never got the Heavy Raider, though. Time to get out the Play-Doh and make your own...
R.I.P. B.S.G. T.S. - Amen.
From SSG Q&A Update from SDCC:
Hasbro: The Outrider is slotted for the end of 2009, if the current schedule holds.
Damn shame the Outrider's been pushed back ANOTHER YEAR... I guess they're just not too interested in doing it anytime this decade. Pretty vague answer...
BTW, Saw The Clone Wars yesterday... it's a vehicle-lover's feast, despite having other issues (like crap music, stiff facial animations, and a shortage of humour).
All-in-all though, I was pleasantly surprised, especially after seeing it garnered a 19% positive score on rottentomatoes.com. IMHO, the Twilight, the Republic Carrier, and the new JSF looked awesome... and the climbing AT-TEs were very kewl, too.
