Anakin seems a bit scrawny.

Holy hell ... awesome looking wave. I love the photorealistic Clone Wars characters. And Roron looks pissed.

This is the first case I've pre-ordered this year. The Clone Wars figures are outstanding.

This is reassuring...

From Yakface:

"Q2: Any chance of the paint operations being reworked for Darth Malak's eyes? While the sculpt of the figure is excellent, his shocked, "deer-in-the-headlight" look is very distracting.

A2: Yes, the paint ops are being reworked (both Lucasfilm and our team here did not like the results from the first shots), and we are trying from piece 1, to solve the issue that you describe. "

Have we already done the Salacious Crumb is humping C-3PO's ear joke yet?

And why are Yoda/Anakin/Roron denoted as being 'expanded universe' figures, as are Malak/Revan?  Shouldn't they be reasonably denoted as Clone Wars based figures?  Yeah, I get it's technically not from movies, but the Clone Wars series was pretty substantial in it's own right, particularly when compared to a couple of comic book or game appearances?

Jayson got that one, I think. Something about green goo, too.

At least we have a to-scale Grievous now... just an EU one.

I think Hasbro's just cloistering all EU together for a wave I assume, not breaking it up into its respective EU-titles I guess...  Clone Wars was substantial but still just another branch of eu ultimately.

I think this SDCC pic from the otheR Site is just hilarious. Notice the A-Winger and Spirit Anakin, which are mediocre figures themselves, laughing at Malak.

I'm so glad yarna didn't win  ;D i know that was a long time ago but i doubt they would have made malak and the other eu stuff if revan didn't win it might have been more fat dancers
I suck.
