A bit of a stretch, in the bottom of this picture we see what others believe is WA-7, Dooku's pilot Droid from AOTC.

Thoughts on this?
 
That's actually pretty cool and a big surprise. It's god to see characters from the PT get some obscure releases. I am already down for it.
 
It looks to be, also, what's going on with those "Jedi" in the bottom next to the phase I clone (green)
 
This BEFORE an updated Vintage Blue Power Droid? Seriously? Lately, this line increasingly makes less and less sense!!!
 
-Hopefully they make the solar sailer to go with it. I'll probably buy one even without it, though.
 
Yea, I dunno. In another thread, someone mentioned this could possibly be a Kaminoan (likely Taun We). If you think about it as being from a funny angle, I could see that. At this point, I still think it's more likely an FA-4, but I suppose we will see soon.
 
I think this is a cool side character with some screen time...will grab one (and maybe more depending on his customizing potential)...
 
I never knew anyone would ever even want this figure. I never once thought, "I'd like to have Dooku's pilot droid figure." That said, I'll be buying it now that it's being made an option. :D
 
The black figure almost looks like a palace Doallyn!? That would be sweet!

And what is that thing to the left of the FA-4 droid? That shape that snakes upward?

to go with that VC Dooku we have. Oh wait!
 
I find it extremely odd that Hasbro would put out a figure of a character like this, that virtually no one has truly campaigned for when they vehemently refuse to put out figures like Jocasta Nu that have almost as much devotion as Willrow Hood did.

If this is what that picture turns out to be showing us, I will probably pick this up, I like having those obscure droids to use in dioramas and such, but it definitely strikes me as an odd choice.
 
The only logical reason for them to release this figure is if they are planning to release Dooku's Solar Sailor vehicle for him to pilot... which IS currently rumored.
 
Well I read somewhere that there are rumors of the Solar Sailer being made. I think it will be made and this figure is to go with it.

The black figure is a TIE Fighter Pilot.

I'm thinking that "snaky" shape is just a protocol droid photographed from a weird angle.
 
Can't wait for another figure on the shelf that can do nothing but stand there, and with some of these droids with thin legs, they need a stand for the only purpose they serve...

Unless we get a solar sailer.

That might be a selling point of this release, who knows?
 
FA-7 could always be a build a droid figure, just an option. Who knows, we'll find out soon enough what the deal is with this.
 
I'm up for this. I'd like a Solar Sailor too.
If he's BAD maybe that would explain why I think maybe that is his console on his left in the photo, with the two joysticks on it?
 
My immediate thought was BAD too. It's less prominant droids like this that BAD is perfect for.
 
I would imagine Hasbro wouldn't single card the Solar Sailor pilot over an updated Hammerhead or 2-1B on a vintage card! Right??!
 
I didn't expect Hasbro to sculpt this FA-4 anytime soon, so he's a very unexpected surprise.
Now I just hope the Solar Sailer rumor turns out to be true. I'd probably display FA-4 driving up it's ramp in my planned secret Geonosis hangar diorama.

He's been in the top ten of my most wanted for years... But I love obscure backgrounders...
 
Really interesting choice, and would be great as a BAD instead of the usual astro droids.
 
Never much interested in this one even though I'm a droid enthusiast, easy pass 4 me.
