Sounds like he has everything but ankle articulation.

And who else wants to paint over the Rebel logo on the "top secret Rebel plans container?" Kinda defeats the purpose of him being an Ice Cream Maker Guy when his bucket can't hold ice cream... ::)

I believe "insert molded" means "ball-jointed" versus the inferior angle cut joints.

Ooooooooh.  So "insert molded" is the name of the joint... I was reading it as a command, as in... insert those molded joints here.

I had visions of the RFT elbow.

Great score for the Q&A!  They just finally told us that he would be in the second ESB wave this year so it's nice to see the drawings for him so that we know for sure he's coming.

Please tell me their image is reversed, and that he'll actually be carrying the ice cream secret rebel plans in the correct arm...  :-\



Either way, congrats once again to OCB for making it all happen.  8)

I thought that at first Matt, but if you look at both arms, they look almost identical, so he's an ambidextrous spy

Looks like they're putting a bit too much pomp in the pompadour - that thing should be flattened out. Otherwise, looking good!

Really cool that they passed this along, and it is cool to see this figure actually coming to fruition.  Congrats Scott - can't wait to pick a couple of this guy up.  When does the autograph lineup start?  ;)

Also the illustration notes say "insert molded elbow(s)".  ;)

I see the hate for Mr. Hood is still going strong over at scum.  That's to be expected, I guess.  The idiots over there never really got it.

I'm down for one (two if Scott promises to autograph one) and I quit collecting the 3-" figures years ago.  So yes, haters.  People will be buying this figure.  Will he pegwarm?  Maybe.  It'll be no different from all the rainbow colored troopers people seem to have a hard on about.

I registered there back in 02 (still have my 40 posts or so) but it is amusing to see what goes on over there from time to time.

Yeah, they have some very bitter feelings about that figure there.  Man alive.  It all seriousness the figure is going to warm the pegs for awhile but so does Queen Organa and that Luke as an office comic pack.
