Continuing with their new low priced, less articulation strategy, Hasbro introduced a new line of 2-packs called Mission Series. Featuring figures similar to the new Legends Line, each set will retail for $9.99.
The sets shown off this weekend include Darth Vader & Seeker Droid, Anakin Skywalker & 501st Clone Trooper, Jango Fett & Battle Droid and a 212th Clone Trooper & Battle Droid.
Shown in the booth with the sets mentioned above were R2-D2 & C-3PO and Captain Rex & Battle Droid. Although they were displayed with the other Mission Series figures, we don’t have any additional info at this time as to whether or not they’re planned for a second wave or just displayed where they fit on the shelves. It’s notable that the Rex and R2 were Clone Wars sculpts. We’ll try to track down more info on them.
