the picture of Gree in that photo looks like he has balljointed hips. This is starting to make me wonder if they have an all new clone trooper sculpt.

I dunno, 1 second he's Anakin, then he gets duped into carving up Mace, next second he's Darth Vader.

No glowey eyes, just a new name.  I kinda like that there's a transition period between going to the dark side, taking a name in the Darth series, and then getting jacked by Obi Wan and having to wear the suit.

A transition period makes sense.  But this happens so fast.  Makes me wonder what incredibly life-changing, life-defining event occurred that gave Darth Maul his name.  How did Darth Maul get his name, anyway?  Is it explained away in the Exhausted Universe?

Anyway, I understand it, begrudgingly.  But I'll still always equate the suit with Darth Vader.

from wiki:

"After a month's time, his master returned and challenged him to a duel, which, already weakened, Maul quickly lost. Sidious then told Maul that he had failed and is soon to be replaced. Overwhelmed by hatred, Maul nearly defeated his master. When Maul's emotions were finally spent, he prepared to die, only having been met by Sidious' satisfaction. By wanting to kill his own master, Maul had in fact passed the final test. His master proclaimed him Darth Maul, Dark Lord of the Sith, and took him to a new home on Coruscant."

I noticed in RS's coverage of "Star Wars Fan Days", they have some loose pics up of this wave for next year.  They are towards the end of that group of pics, but it gives you a better look at the figures up close if anyone is interested.

Yes but that requires a new sculpt. Hasbro just re-painted the clone for the first Gree & everyone hates it.

At the very least he's a kit bash since he has ball jointed hips.

Gree has ball-jointed wrists. That's a first for a Star Wars figure.

The Panning Droid and Platform were originally accessories for Obi-Wan & Vader, and the Droids arms plug into the lava base.

I'm pretty disappointed in the Panning Droid. The execution is just plain lazy.

A. No separate transparent base to support the Droid.

B. Why put foot pegs on top of his head if you have to take the droid and attach it to another base that has foot pegs. Kind of kills "the mood" of the set.  ::)

C. How long do you think it will take for Vader to topple off the droid's head given the flimsy arms that are now meant to support him.

D. It's a Lava Panning Droid. Where is the lava for the bowl?

Move over Mustafar Lava Miner... you're gonna have company.

I guess that a little messed up about the Lava Droid orignally being a pack-in and now its own figure.

They're half-assed accessories so they should have been pack-ins, but I suppose Hasbro has "spoiled" us a bit to much this year...
