Why in the hell are they sculpting figures with their legs spread apart so far? The Guard and DST both suffer from Jerjerrod disease
Fett is great, hopefully it includes a poncho!
If it's any help. I've managed to fix the Endor Trooper legs quite well... It's a little work but it's permanent and doesn't involve cutting or anything, just boiling and freezing, but it works dandy...
The honor guard looks to have articulated knees... I'm giddy at the thought.
The wide stances are starting to eat a lot of stank ass though. I wish Hasbro wouldn't try to make figures interesting on their own... wide legs don't make them interesting to children.
Anyway, my thoughts on them all...
-Han rocks and I'd been asking for this one since VOTC Han came out... Han w/Gloves and a headset head is fantastic. I may even get another one to swap an extra clean head onto him with his gloves on since he does wear 'em without the headset a bit. Perfect example of what Hasbro needs to re-use int he line. SA all the way!
-Rebel Honor Guard... I don't consider him nearly as boring as the Naboo guy, Jeff, but he's definitely a bit obscure. He makes a GREAT base figure too for a Rebel Mid-Level Officer from Yavin, they just need to tool up a head with the ballcap style hat on it, or make a head with cap accessory... whatever.
I'm curious on this guy, anyone else think his visor will come down on his helmet? I hope so.
Either way, great figure... Not what all the rumor lists were saying it was going to be (remember allt he rumors claiming it was a Rebel Fleet Trooper with the scanner pistol and the watch tower? Guess not...). Still, this is amazing and the wide leg stance is fixable so I'm ok with it... Annoyed, but it's far superior to say the Endor Rebels and their shoddy arms.
-Biggs... I'm torn. "Dutch" is not the ideal X-Wing Pilot sculpt, I'm sorry. He's way too tall and now Biggs is absurdly tall... That said, I'm going to be pretty pleased to pick up this figure regardless. I still hope for a new SA X-Winger sculpt sometime but till then "Dutch" is so-so and the headsculpt looks fantastic.
-Death Star Trooper (Imp. Naval Trooper)... Somewhere in Texas, someone needs to change his shorts I'm guessing!
I love it... The shoulders look a little different, but beyond that it looks super articulated or damn close to it with a great removable helmet and a nice generic headsculpt. Count me in for a TRUCKLOAD of that figure. I must build my army! God I gotta start saving $.
Oh and the helmet sculpt... Wow that's sweet looking.
-Boba Feet (Concept)... Now, I know you're not too into him Jeff, but the concept Fett's been THE conceptual figure I've wanted since the Stormtrooper was unveiled... And man Hasbro went to town on this one with super articulation, a flame accessory, 2 headsculpts... I was hoping he'd have his poncho (cloth) too but it seems to not be. I'm curious on his abdomen too and why it opens up. Very freaky...
This wave has me happy beyond belief... And yeah articulation on this wave at least seemst o be up, up, up up, and up... Just as it should be for the $7 pricetag SW figures get these days.
That's an army builder's delight wave. I'm ordering a case of those, I must have multiples!
