The Hasbro panel at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando has confirmed a new release in the 6" line coming later this year.
Commander Gree, as seen in Revenge of the Sith, will be a Toys R Us exclusive.
Gree will utilise the existing Mark 2 Clone Trooper helmet and will then tweak the existing body and panels to represent his lighter armoured gear from the battle on Kashyyyk.
Gree will come with what looks to be the standard Clone weaponry - DC15A and DC15S - and will also come with a pair of macro binculars.
While some Toys R Us exclusives like the First Order Snowtrooper and this years Hover Tank Pilot have crossed the pond and been widely available in the UK - others like the Astromech 3-pack have not been sold outside the US. For UK fan's we would hope that Gree falls into the latter camp and will not be restricted to UK collectors and leave us once again paying a premium. Price wise the US RRP has gone up from prior releases and now sits at $24.99.

The other news coming out of Hasbro at Celebration is that the upcoming Hera figure has been withdrawn from the schedule and is being worked on some more. The figure is absent from the Hasbro display. This of course is nothing new and happened to the original Leia figure. We await details for Hera and what that means for the next wave.
