Check out THIS POSTING BY GORKORACING in the Sandtroopers forums.  He's posted an image of a TRU exclusive figure from CLONE WARS.  It's Kul Teska.

Copying this into this thread, as this wave will now be exclusive to Toys R Us

VERY significant news regarding the final wave of the TLC RED line in this week's Q&A session


SIR STEVE'S GUIDE


QUESTION:  In a recent answer, Hasbro revealed that the Spring 2010 EU wave will be the only group of non-Clone Wars new figures until the Fall. Granted, we have seen gaps in the line before - most recently in the break between The Force Unleashed wave in Spring 2008 and the ROTJ wave in July 2008 - but this news has many collectors worried. With the Legacy line apparently in poor shape, is it the wisest idea to put it on hiatus for over 2 quarters this year? Granted, we'll still have The Clone Wars figures to look forward to, but such a pause might cause even more movie-based collectors to walk away and further undermine the line, perhaps into completely folding. Hasbro stated recently "We are working hard to get [collectors who have left the line] back, and we think that what we have lined up next year will be our best attempt." We know full details will be revealed at Toy Fair so we won't ask specifics, but can collectors look forward to some movie-based products in those lean 6 to 8 months while the basic Legacy-style line is on hiatus, enough stuff to hold their interest? And is it too late to get out a repaint wave, perhaps with some of those already-tooled variant figures like the Hoth Trooper, Imperial Scanning Crew, and Utai, perhaps some tooled but canceled Comic Pack figures, maybe even some kitbashes like Han Solo head on an Imperial body, to keep collectors interested during the break?

ANSWER:   There is literally nothing that can be done to get more figures to retail sooner. It's not the way we want it; ideally, new waves would flow in to retail every 6-8 weeks like clockwork. We originally set out to have more figures after the EU wave, but it became apparent that we would never get to them so they became the Toys 'R Us exclusive multi-packs. Legacy sales have been so far off the mark - and retails have enough inventory - that even the EU wave has become a Toys 'R Us exclusive in May, with some online retailers having access to the last of the run in June. Once we start fresh with Vintage, we will be able to manage the line to the new collector baseline and make tight releases to keep waves flowing regularly.



More on the TRU Exclusive EU wave of Basic Figures: Jayson at YAKFACE has sighted the EU wave in the midwest.  And there are stickers on the cases for this wave as seen in THIS IMAGE that indicate that this wave is slated to be part of a COLLECTOR ENDCAP that will be set up on Saturday, May 1st.

Check out THIS BANTHA SKULL HASBRO Q&A session for a first look at the new Juno Eclipse figure which will be part of one of two TRU exclusive Force Unleashed Battle Packs.  This version of Juno is different from the carded release, and looks much more like her in pilot gear.


More on the TFU multipacks.  Check out this new version of Galen Marek

Check out some images of some future TRU exclusives

SPEEDER BIKE WITH BIKER SCOUT

STAP WITH BATTLE DROID

There's no indication at this time when these might be hitting retail, but since they're in the white/red line look they're likely to hit retail in the next couple of months.
