Overall, I really like these Deluxe offerings. They're far superior to some of the Deluxe losers of last year (ie force-flipping, slashing Anakin, Jetpack Jango).
I like the way they paired up Jango & Obi-Wan. They're really giving thought to inter-connectibility, and that it's an added bonus to openers. The same goes for the Super Battle Droid builder. I honestly can't see myself building too many SBD's, but the press is a nice addition to my growing Droid Factory.
My personal favorite of the bunch is Obi-Wan. First, I'm just a big fan of the character. Second, it's a robed version that looks pretty good, especially in his drenched Kamino look. I can overlook the lack of leg articulation in this instance. Plus, I think the action feature is about as unobtrusive as it could possibly be.
The Dwarf Spider Droid is cool, too. I like the sculpt, although I think I got a gimpy one. He only takes a couple of steps before he gets too pooped to pop. Still, a good idea using fairly old design and technology.
I've yet to successfully get Jango to stick to his pillar. It's just going to take a little practice, methinks.
Overall, I think these are some good offerings.
