No, these aren't perfect, but I think that Hasbro has done a much better job on the latest deluxes; Kamino Obi Wan, Kamino Jango, Dwarf Spider Droid and Super Droid Builder. For the most part, I think these are almost as good as Bacta Luke/Sail Barge Leia/3PO&Battle Droid/Nexu; especially the Kenobi.
Anyway, I received these yesterday from newforcecomics, and I think Jedirhino wanted to see what I thought of them, so here's my thoughts:Super Droid
A pretty creative idea by Hasbro. If you actually use the "quick-steel" compound, your Super Droid will probably look a little odd though. The detail on the actual sculpted part of the droid is fantastic though, and even has articulated ankles. Also, the compounding chamber is awesome. It looks great in my ever expanding factory conveyor belt. Also, my Super Droid is sitting down as if he is an incompleted droid, looks pretty cool that way. The "creation" feature is kinda cheesy for adults perhaps, but I think most kids would like it; I know I would have about 15 years ago.
This is a cool set in my opinion, I give it a pretty high grade at a B+Dwarf Spider Droid
After reading all the bad reviews about this a while back, I'll admit that I wasn't expecting much. But, truth be told, I opened mine and I really like it. It would be a lot better if the cannon was proportioned right (can easily be customized though I think) and if it had the detail of the B'Mor Monk from a few years back, but I think this one is acceptable for now and I'll likely get 2-3 more. The walking feature works fine, but they probably should have painted the white wind-up knob being so it didn't stand out so much. Again, that is easily fixable. If they decide to redo this in a few years though to make it more movie accurate, I won't complain. Overall, a B.Kamino Jango Fett
I wish they had used an all new sculpt for this Jango, or at least paid more attention to paint details on him. But his action feature actually works almost half of the time (jumps from a platform and sticks to a Kamino column); and he looks freaking awesome hanging from the column. Kudos to Hasbro in that regard. Also, the Kamino column is great for a diorama, that alone makes this deluxe worth buying to me, as I will get at least one more for that column. Overall grade to me is a B- because they used an old Jango sculpt. Also, his helmet looks like it is removable, but it isn't. Kamino Obi Wan
Now this is one of my favorite deluxes ever, Hasbro captured the likeness of Obi Wan in this scene very well. He is also posed well, and we finally have a plastic cloaked EPII Kenobi. His legs unfortunately aren't articulated at all, but I'll forgive Hasbro this time because his waist still is which does make him slightly poseable, but his real articulation gem is his right elbow. Total poseability! This figure looks awesome squaring off against Jango, and he also comes with a column that has an action feature that works very well. The hole in his hand is barely noticeable for the action feature (much better job there Hasbro), and they did a good job concealing the one in the back of his shoulder. I give this an overall of an A.
Also, both columns with the Jango and Obi Wan connect to bases, and the bases connect to each other for a cool little diorama. This is much better work by Hasbro, and is leaps and bounds above the crappy "flipping" deluxes, Anakin v. Geonosian Warrior, etc.
I know that not everyone may not agree with my assesments, so does anyone else have these yet? If so, what do you think of them?
