I don't know who he is either, but, man, that's nice  looking figure.  I'll buy one.

I don't know much about the character myself.  I know he is from the KOTOR video game...well I think so at least?  I thought he would be more articulated though.  I could be wrong but that dress makes it look like he may not be?  Eh, it's a proto so I should shut up I suppose.  Just saying.

The figure looks really good, still wish Yarna would have won.

I'm probably the king bitcher about articulation so I'm with you on that, but given the skirt on him, articulation from the waist down is pretty much waisted...  :(  I wouldn't (and I'm not by far) count on anything poseable below the waist...  The arms though bode well for this guy being about as super poseable as he can be. 

Softgoods that ornate wouldn't be easy for that skirt piece and cape...  That looks pretty complex to me.

Sharp looking figure. I'd complain about the skirt, which I'm sure will interfear with posability, but otherwise, very cool (for an EU character.)

I'm not an EU hater... I just don't go too far outside of the movies. I'll be passing on him, but it means an extra one sitting on the pegs for you guys.

Just wanted to expand that I think it's great that Hasbro is branching out and doing some more EU for those that love it. I mean all the concept figures aren't techinically in the movie, but I love those... and I'm grateful to the Big H for that movie.

While I understand the purist in most Star Wars collecting, you'd gotta think that this Darth Raven is going to outsell the likes of your Gargas, Naboo "Soldiers", & Poggles all of which are canon, i.e. in the movies.  At my local Greatland Poggle is 3 deep on everypeg and all the other GH's are pegwarming as well.  So I have to think what kid or adult for that matter would pick up a Naboo "soldier" over a bad ass Sith.  I'm no means an EU freak I've never played the game the only thing I know about Raven is what I read on Wookpedia.  You also have to think a lot of the background characters like Cantina & Jabba's Palace are one step away form being EU anyway.  Half their backstories suck and the other half you only almost see waist up.  Most kids probably don't even remember them from the movie either.  Sorry for the rant :-\

The likeness seems pretty dead-on.  I definitely like the sculpt.  But obviously the molded plastic robes are going to limit the poseability of this figure.  Still it looks like Hasbro is trying to make up for that by putting in ball jointed elbows and shoulders.

Now that this figure is on the way, it's really going to need some kind of a KOTOR companion piece.  Perhaps Darth Malak or Bastila?

yes, it REALLY does, that may be the ONLY negative i have found so far on this fig. No KOTOR companions. pretty dum, especially cuz hasblo probably isnt making any other KOTORs anytime soon.

Hopefully, with Hasbro realizing how popular Revan & KOTOR is, they'll make more. At the BARE MINIMUM we need Bastila, Carth, & some Sith Troopers/Officers.

I could go for a full wave of KOTOR figures, though I know that's not a good idea market wise.  It's smarter to sprinkle in the EU in the line here and there.  I would absolutely love it if in 2008, if in each wave there was a KOTOR character.
