It’s a bounty hunter bonanza as Count Dooku throws them all in The Box to see who emerges victorious.  Seems like it would be simpler to make this a Major Spoilers Poll of the Week (POW!), but then we wouldn’t have a sneak peek sent to us directly from Lucasfilm.

Which bounty hunters will be the last ones standing? It’s a tournament of champions, Star Wars-style, in the next all-new episode of The Clone Wars. Obi-Wan Kenobi is still deep undercover as the criminal marksman Rako Hardeen, and he’s done such an impressive job that he’s qualified for Count Dooku’s ultimate test: surviving the Box.

The Box is a technological marvel, a reconfiguring obstacle course where sloppy players are eliminated, because Dooku needs the best if he’s going to carry out his wicked plot to kidnap the Chancellor. A dozen of the galaxy’s most skilled and notorious bounty hunters are selected to compete for the mission – including the unforgettable Embo, who makes a return appearance.  Cad Bane also enters the fray, and he’s been keeping a close eye on “Rako.” Can Obi-Wan prove his skills to survive to the finish, without revealing he’s a Jedi Knight?


Check out the non-stop action and danger found in “The Box,” the next chapter of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, airing at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT Friday, February 3rd on Cartoon Network.

    Ill be cheering for Embo – but I think Cad Bane wil take the gold!
    The 7-samurai episode where we first met Embo is still one of my favorites to this day.
