I think Hunter's right that he can be made look more natural with all the articulation he has... If I had a complaint it's his pinhead... Beyond that, I am sure the articulation lets you get him in less of a stiff corpse look.
I like this wave for its newness... 2 alien podracers, Gragra (my fav of the wave I think), and a nice army builder... Hasbro lists these guys as "soldiers", not groundcrew. Tough to say who's right on that but there sure were a lot of these guys in E1 as I recall so I dunno... If it's a soldier, it's even better to me just from a character standpoint.
No figure in the Naboo Wave has my attention like the ENdor Rebel Soldiers though. Those are sweet.
Anyway, this wave is ok... Even the Obi-Wan looks ok to me, to an extent, so it's not a bad wave I think... It helps cover some of the often-overlooked Episode 1 figures too, though no resculpts people have been asking for now for a while.
