I think these all look good. I've been waiting for the DST for a very long time.  I think he looks great except for those knees.  I mean, that just looks horrible for a final product from Hasbro. I understand it's harder to hide the articulation but the Ceremonial Luke knees look just fine and it's basically the same outfit (pants and high boots) so it's not like it can't be done.  Is it maybe because they were made by different sculptors?  Anyway, I hope it turns out looking better in person.

Legs: black version of pilot Obi
skirt: black Jerjerrod's modified with those silver box thingys.
Torso & arms: Dooku's instead of the removable hands they're the extra long gloves.

I hope it's not cliche to quote my own post but with the new pic of Luke coming right after mine I wasn't sure anybody would have bothered reading it, not that what I have to say is that important, but I was really curious about what everybody thought about my hypothesis about the DS trooper

Ok I am beginning to think my theory of it being Dooku completely with a new head are wrong and you are closer to the mark.  But yes, it appears to be a kit bash.

I have been waiting for this figure with almost as much anticipation as JJ has for a new RFT (maybe 2008 if we are lucky)...so I am excited and disappointed at the same time.  We are miles ahead of where we were, but we still have a ways to go to get to Perfection for me.

What in the hell is that coming out of his stomach?  An umbilical cord?  A microwave dinner?  A cheap rip off of Alien?

Just tell me you can close the toaster oven door. :-\

Yeah, that's why I wanted to see some pictures first before I try anything :)

I don't think this has been mentioned yet, but Galactic Hunter is confirming that the Concept Boba will include BOTH helmets -- thankfully there is no "chase figure" as some worried.  Regardless, I'm buying two anyway so I can display both helmets at once...

and here... at Entertainment earth under the casepack discription
2x McQuarrie Concept Boba Fett (includes two different helmets).

Good to know Hasbro listened to the booers at the SDCC when they announced they were leaning towards limiting/shortpacking mcQuarrie concept figures in this line.

It's a compartment for spare darts, you know, for his dart gun!   :D

I'm pretty sure it closes.

That's no dart gun, it's a frickin' pot roast.  Or a turd.

Am I the only one a little annoyed that this is the best Rebel Soldier we have in the modern line (not that he's out yet of course)?  No Fleet Trooper, no Hoth Rebel, and no Endor Rebel figure compares to the quality of this guy, and yet this is just a guy seen briefly once chilling in a background sequence (though I make the argument again that the uniform is common...  He's just missing a hat). 

I want my goddamn Fleet Troopers, Hoth Rebels, and Endor Rebels that are THIS good or better.   >:(
