If he is still lame looking or can't be helped at that point, then I will only buy a dozen. That will show Hasbro....
Hah! I can't stop laughing at that.
Again my random thoughts on the fumbuck of images we got today... Big Ups to Jeff for some seriously kickass work too.
-Han... Outstanding and perhaps my favorite of the figures pictured, and that says a TON... I'm curious if we're going to get a snap-on hood-up or if that's something being reserved for a second release of the figure? And where's Scott's post about the color? I want a color debate god dammit! I want to see a fight over this that even Hasbro acknowledges due to the epic scale of it!
Super articulation, well hidden too at the ankles, lots of "bulk" to the figure, great sculpt, and a fantastic likeness... The color loosk blue-ish to me int he photo... I'm a brown guy.
-Luke... Love it. I've hated old Tumorback Luke since 2002... SA, lots of detail, I'm happy... I just hope the legs aren't awkwardly spread apart. That's a fear on many figures this year I think and Luke, I dunno about yet.
-Bossk... Why do I
love Trandoshans? Because they gets alllllllllllllllllllll da ladies. Jockin' the Wookiees and slappin' the ho's, that' livin' Trandoshan style. OK, now that I have that weirdness out of the way, I love this figure... I love Bossk in general despite others complaining we already got him twice. This figure is amazing and I'm excited to pick him up. I keep winding up with more and more Trandoshan fodder though because of new versions.
-IG-88... I can't tell WHAT articulation is on this figure, but if I judged a figure by just aesthetics, this is a thing of beauty. I see his bitchin' knife and I hope it's a removable accessory too... Both blasters, I'm thinking he has super articulation by some miracle... Outstanding if that's the case Hasbro... Now prove to me this figure's super poseable and I'm gonna be completely happy... Till then, it's probably the best sculpt of any figure in a long time in terms of intricate details.
-Endor Leia... Tough to judge because of the poncho of course. The poncho's sharp, as it was on Luke, SA of course, and a nice little pistol (first accurate leia gun sculpt ever I believe). Tough to judge is all, but I expect good things. I think people will bemoan her visible joints... To get SA Leia's I'm willing to trade some of the aesthetic then.
-Snowtrooper... THis one's tricky for me to judge... Does anyone else feel like his thighs look spread apart awkwardly and like this one might be a pain to pose? I hope this isn't the case and that the picture just doesn't do the figure justic... I'm not terribly concerned on the skirt piece, as I agree these look like early prototypes and not production level stuff... I agree though that I hope we see pouches on the outside there Paul, where they should be.
Does he look to have a removable helmet with a cloth facemask? I can't tell but that's somethign I always have wanted on a new SA Snowtrooper figure and I can almost tell myself that's what I see but I'm just not sure. Either way it's a sharp sculpt, I just hope they didn't try to pre-pose those legs at all by making them awkwardly spread apart like the Death Star Trooper or Yavin Ceremonial Guard figures appeared...
