The lack of knee articulation doesn't really bother me since they haven't (and won't) make anything for them to sit on anyway. :-\

That's a good point, but I still have not comitted to this set yet for the same reason. That and only 3 of the figures are different enough for me to want them. Is it just the pictures, or are the figures going to look that washed out too? It seems like that dead-caucasian colored plastic, rather than paint.

I find some irony in the fact that we're complaining about the lack of knee articulation and  that the box drives home the fact that they should have knee articulation. :P

Anyone else notice that some of the officers are staring blankly at their chairs wondering why they can't sit down?

You've got a point there. I laughed for some reason when I read your post.

Another thing I noticed is that all the officers have the slash cut elbow articulation except Motti. Couldn't they have forked out the 6 for the new arms to avoid that horrible pivot joint? YUCK!

I suppose it may be necessary for the choking pose, but I'm not sure.

I actually like the way it looks boxed.  I kind of go at this with the attitude we are lucky to get these at all if you know what I mean?

I'm right there with you. Setting the non-articulated knees aside, Hasbro did a great job on assembling the best available pieces to make the best figures they could for kit-bashes.
