I agree with Lando that, unless you really just don't care for EU in general, the game really does play out fantastic and you'll probably like the story... I think it's worth playing through and getting to know the character(s) in it but that's me.
The figure looks fantastic I think... hasbro has a real quality looking sculpt there. When I do my reviews the sculpt is generally the first aspect of any action figure I start picking apart. Not often does Hasbro drop the ball, but it does happen on occassion. But this figure looks really to be above par in terms of little details... Kudos to them for a fine job on that.
Articulation looks as good as can be too... For the character, that's appropriate (and short of softgoods, which would need to be overly elaborate, this is as good as it could get I think) and I'm pleased...
I didn't want him to win either, and having ONE KOTOR figure bugs the **** out of me... even just two would bug me. You need more to make it really count IMO, but at least what they are offering is looking like a good toy anyway.
