Looks like a reissue of the clean Captain Rex is on his way out again in the new 09 red packaging. The image was posted over at <a href="www.JediNews.co.uk" target="_blank">JediNews.co.uk</a>:



Anyone going to be picking him up again?

This is a regular Rex on a new card, the point of it is to sell more.

The first Captain Rex was a pretty decent seller so this one will do fine when he hits again. It's always good to have the main characters on the shelves for the kids who may have missed him the first time around.

Re: Captain Rex - CW**

He should be either 18 or 19 but we'll have to wait for pictures to confirm his number

Nope, 18 and 19 are repacks of Anakin and Obi-Wan.

I got Captain Rex off eBay in the new packaging and received it yesterday. Rex is a great figure, the helmet is really neat! I think it's good that they reissued this figure if a lot of people missed it at retail the first time. I haven't seen Rex at retail, either version.

Coudn't resist picking a new Rex... I already have like 3 of him, but this packaging hypnotized me. I bought him and opened him. And now I have another Rex. Dammit.

The new packaging looks a lot cleaner than the old compact packaging. I'm disappointed that they didn't fix the helmet with the new clone helmets that all the new clones are getting. I MIGHT pick him up, but I already got 2 Rex (1 clean, 1 dirty).

Clones are a hot seller since a lot of kids love clones. Every time I go to Toys R Us, Target, or Wal-Mart, most of the new clones are bought since I always see remnants of the waves. Not to mention Rex is the main clone trooper, he's a hot seller.

They really need to update his helmet. He's the most iconic clone of the series and has the worst toy sculpt. yuck.

I'll spend one more week looking for one, if I can't find any, I'll just use the HTS code and order it there
