Rebelscum's mentioned a new wave of figures to fill in for the Force Unleashed wave being dumped to '08 due to the game's delay. What's the verdict on these?
-Holographic Vader... They're saying it'll use Dagobah Vader, which isn't bad... Good sculpt, decent height and all. He can't really do the hands on his hip dealie he does when he's talking to people via holograph (Off hand only his chat with Veers comes to mind?). Still it's another cheap holographic figure, which people dig briefly.
-Naboo Dude (Red)... Oh I can hear the complaints already on this one.
Still, you gotta admit the figure's not horrid. It's accurate, fairly poseable (not great)... I'm ok with this but again I could have lived without it, and if this guy gets a figure I think ICMG must be made.
-Rodian Mechanics... I'm not even gonna bother looking into their names. I'm already a little irked that I really doubt they're accurate (wrong boots) and the vest isn't gonna be quite right. I'm assuming here obviously, but a straight VTSC Greedo repaint ain't "accurate". There's a neatness to this one though, if for no other reason than diversity, but I'd just as happily taken the Rodian with a Hoth vest from Jabba's Palace over these.
-Rebel Vanguard... The figure it's being based on, TSC Endor Rebel, isn't very good so this figure is going to suffer. Weaponry will be the main interesting factor on this one.
-Clone w/Poncho... Now this kicks ass. Best figure of the wave as a LOT of people dug those clones with the muddy deco and poncho's from the CW toons. I'm anxious to see this.
-Brown Dot ROTS Clone... Meh, I'll get a handful but it's like the 5th Fleet figure... boring paint job. I wish they'd include some cool accessories like boxes and a heavy cannon or something. Mix it up a little for once.
