Kenner Cameos: The Clone Wars Season 5

Welcome to another installment of Kenner Cameos! Here it is our goal to provide a guide for every time a Kenner (and Hasbro) concept or design has been showcased, outside of the action figure line, in Star Wars collectibles, publishing, animation and so on. This week we take a look at The Clone Wars animated series which ran from 2008-2014.

But in Season Five the series throw in a few nods the the vintage line.  - 2013 - Walrus Man On January 5th, the episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars titled "Missing in Action" debuted. The episode appeared in [...]
