If she has "normal" articulation it means that she does suck. ::)

Plus her knees look like Cantina Han/ Commtech Luke's knee type (whatever the hell it's called) which looks sucky. ::)
Eh, atleast the droids are kick-ass.

Wait...there's a picture clear enough to see the articulation on her knees?  Where?

The one I looked at was bad(pic)..but, it looks like no knee articulation...which..really would not surprise me considering it's a Hasbro first release of a figure. They're typically allotted 2 to...3,4,5,? retries to get a figure right. This way they get the most money out of the collector :P.

If it turns out they are articulated(the knees), then I bet there's probably 8-10 AC
points ...so folks will scream for a better version(= more money for Hasbro later) :P.

Yeah, from what we can see, it does look pretty pre-posed.  That's kind of disappointing if true.

Theoretically, normal articulation only consists of hips, shoulders and neck.  

What strikes me as cool are those droids  - they are bigger than I expected.  

Not a bad dealio for $20.

They picked good sculpts for R2 and 3PO as well (Jabba's Sail Barge and ROTS respectively). Even though Padme stinks articulation wise, I'll be picking this one up.

As I'm a sucker for Clone Wars stuff (especially things based on the cartoon), I'll definitely pick one of these up.  My only real complaint (other than the total lack of articulation on Padme, which now amounts to nothing less than a 2002 Saga figure to me, since it's a one-pose wonder) is that Threepio is gold.  This would have been a great opportunity to get a well-painted AOTC-era version of him, and not only did we miss out on it here, they're reissuing the 2002 Deluxe BD Head Threepio again in the basic/Legends line. 

Still, two Chameleon Droids and (an albeit preposed) Snow Bunny Padme makes this worth the 20 bucks it'll likely cost.

Wow, that's a huge let down.  The droids are sweet and much bigger than I imagined, but I would have gladly done with only one if it meant she had some decent articulation.  May not get this.  And I was looking forward to her big time - her and the Clone Obi Wan are my two biggest wants from CW.

The Padme looks more pre-posed than ever...  I'm bummed, however, the two droids are OUTSTANDINGLY huge.  Love that!  I may need two packs just for extra chameleon droids...  I can repaint R2 and 3PO, and Padme can go in the fodder bin...  I'm happy with the set.

I believe Hasbro has no clue what preposed actually refers to. Of course this comes from the same company who said that they made a decent Fleet Trooper, so I guess we can't expect much more from them.

That being said, the droids look nice. I ike the de-cloaking eefect they have going on. I'll be getting at lest one just for the droids for sure.

When you get down to it, it looks like this set is really just 5 hunks of plastic. :P
