Star Wars: The Clone Wars is now over. As we watch Star Wars Rebels and look forward to Star Wars The Force Awakens, we can satisfy our thirst with over 100 episodes of The Clone Wars. Now the true fun begins in finding all those little gems that are stuck in the background or off in the wings. Many people call these hidden treasures Easter Eggs and The Lost Missions had their fair share.  Mania was able to spot few, but we know we didn’t catch them all. Here is our list of the ones we did find. What did we miss? Post your Lost Missions Easter Eggs in the comment section below!
 
STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS: THE LOST MISSIONS is out now on Blu-ray and DVD! 

Commander Doom
“The Unknown” - Episode 1 
 
There are tons of Clone Troopers in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. A name always emerges and this one stands out. With Disney having purchased Lucasfilm, this one is just too good to pass up. So Clone Commander Doom, with the green and grey armor, is an obvious reference to Marvel character, Doctor Doom, that Disney owns as well. 

Sebulba Cameo
“Rise of Clovis” - Episode 6
 
It was already interesting enough to see Anakin’s private quarters. Did you happen to catch his old racing adversary up on his wall? Yes, that is Sebulba on a pod racing poster. Should I bother to mention the similarities with the model ship and similar scenario in Luke’s workshop?

Jango Fett Cameo
“Fugitive” - Episode 3
 
This one was a little obvious, but they didn’t have to show Jango in his full armor. His appearance in Star Wars, you could say, is short lived. His impact, though, was clearly felt. It was great to see that iconic armor in this now iconic series. 

Mon Mothma Cameo
“Crisis of the Heart” - Episode 7
 
The future leader of the Rebellion has a brief cameo in The Lost Missions. Sure, she had appeared before in The Clone Wars. Here we see a last disapproving look for her as the Republic and Palpatine have taken control of the banks. 

Original Ian McCaig Concept Jedi Design
“The Lost One” - Episode 10
 
 Master Sifo-Dyas had been spoken of before, but never revealed. So it was perfect when The Clone Wars crew gave him the appearance of Iain McCaig’s Episode I Obi-Wan/ Qui-Gon concept drawing. This has been done throughout The Clone Wars with everything from ships, creatures, and characters. A fitting design for an influential character. 
 
Jedi Council Chamber, Conceptual Design Character
“Voices” - Episode 11
 
Another one of Iain McCaig’s concept Jedi appeared in the third to last episode of The Clone Wars. Originally conceived as a Jedi council member, “Rig Nima” plays a Jedi Doctor attending Yoda. Yet another great design used in the series. 

Jedi Knight Quinlan Vos Cameo
“Destiny” - Episode 12
 
 When Yoda is having his vision on what could have been, we see a serene scene at the Jedi Temple. There are obvious elements that are not right, Doooku chatting with Qui-Gon being the first. However, in the back we see fan favorite Jedi Quinlan Vos standing there. He had been on the series before, but it was great to see him one more time on the series. 
 

EVEN MORE STAR WARS OUT TODAY! 

Disney XD accompanied the release of STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS: THE LOST MISSIONS with their release of Phineas & Ferb: Star Wars. Now, I am a Star Wars fan through and through. The adventures of Phineas & Ferb are known to me through my nephews. My brother, their father, raved about the Star Wars episode/special of Phineas & Ferb. I decided to check it out. After all, I have loved the episodes and short film spoofs of Star Wars by both Robot Chicken and Family Guy

Sadly... it wasn’t for me. You know and I know that I will get all the Star Wars jokes. However, I feel as if the jokes here were more tailored for the Phineas & Ferb crowd. It was a great blending styles and animation, but I found myself checking the time than enjoying the blending of these properties. I realized that Phineas & Ferb is not for me. Awesome for the kiddies, just not this Star Wars fan.

Hi Robert,

Would there be any way to find out if a full box set will be coming out with all seasons of the Clone Wars, including the Lost Episodes?

I know the special edition box set came out with all five seasons but the sixth wasn't in it...just wondering if I should get both seperatly or wait for one full box set.

 There is nothing yet that says there will be an all encompassing box set. It is Lucasfilm and they have released different versions in the past. Warner Brothers had some claim to the Clone Wars series, but these episodes fall in the Disney era... as always, it is your call whether or not to wait.

 I enjoyed Phines & Ferb Star Wars, passed on getting the DVD but I did buy the episode on iTunes.

I picked up Batman Complete Series, and man that is one awesome set!  It even has a button that you can press which plays the TV show's theme song.  Love Love the set, might be my favorite set that I own, tho the Lost complete series is pretty awesome too.  

@jedibanner, you're better of buying the sets separately like I did.  Like Trate mentioned, Seasons 1-5 are WB, Lost Episodes are Disney so a complete set is not likely and I haven't read anything indicating that one is coming. Disney doesn't even sell seasons 1-5 thru their official stores.  I'd keep an eye out on Black Friday to see if you can get the Complete Series on a good deal, and Lost Episodes might be getting a discount too.
