I'm on the fence about Cody, which i guess isn't a good thing. For all the hype and expectations from the fans, it's got to be somewhat of a disapointment.

I actually like it.  Then again I don't own it either so maybe I will feel differently then.

Jesse: Cody's legs are really that spread cause mine does the same thing.  In face, his right foot does not touch the base.

I'm much happier with rereleased figures when they good strides are made towards making the figure more movie-accurate. This was probably the best Grievous to use, and now that he actually is painted correctly, he's a very cool figure, I think.

That Grievous figure may be painted better, but HELLO, that figure is still over an inch short.  Look at Grievous in the movie, he TOWERS over everybody...battle droids, Obi Wan, everyone.  This figure is so out of scale it's actually not even usable in dioramas.  It's still a piece of crap until they get the height right.  It should be just under 5", not 3 3/4".

True, but then Hasbro would be forced to make an all NEW sculpt of General G and that ain't  in the card(back)s.  Well at least not until that version runs it's course in that Heroes and Villains set.  Maybe next year?

And the greatest part is they put out 3 or 4 versions of that piece of **** so far and every single one of them is an underscaled midget.

Anyone heard of Walmart's receiving these?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I do believe the deluxe one was closer to scale.

I think he's closer Anton but I don't know that he's accurate.  I'd have to compare and I'm too lazy to do so at the moment, but I do think it's bigger.  A single, SA Grievous with locking "4-arms", cloth cape (with saber slots), and proper scaling are all in order IMO.  If the 2 hands that get cut off were removable, I'd be in heaven.

Anyway, Jeff officially sucks...  >:(  Look at that awesome haul of figures!  That should be shared with all!  I gotta move to Minnesota because there ain't jack and/or **** around here.

Rune, I'm sure Lushros Dofine pics are on their way...  Jared's our photo guru for the most part, so he handles our Image Database.  You can thank him for the hgihest res photos around...  He does great work for us.  Hands down the best.
