Any pics you could share?
I am really happy to hear that these are not straight repacks and have real upgrades.

Listen and watch the enhanced Star Wars Action News Podcast. They have a segment in this week's episode (#127) detailing the entire first wave for 2008.

Whoah! Now that's some articulation!

it's about time they get the hips done right. I know some of the clones had this on them, but lacked articulation in other areas.

I was going to pass on these two before, but now I'm going to have to buy them. This is a MUCH improved upgrade.

Yeah, you cannot gripe on that...  at least not too much.  The ultimate Jedi figures for the most part.  Ani's arms are still angle-cut joints, which were fairly limited for poses, but the Obi-Wan's as good as it gets to me.  Hasbro easily gets me to buy these.  I'd have bought htem with "Mustafar Battle Damage" burn marks actually.  The hips are a no-brainer on them though now.

Jayson posted the pics so I can't take credit. ;D  Great shots showing how improved the figures are though for certain.  It makes me wonder how "improved" 2008 figures may be overall, if wave 1 alone has 3 really SA figures in it like that.

Thanks for the pics Jay!  It's been awhile since I've been able to view stuff you've posted.  Is it just me?   ;)

Looks like there might be a bit of GI Joe action going on with those hips.  Too bad you can't see what's going on under the tabard - I assume that's the skirting?

The tabard is actually the plastic part below the waist. Previous versions have had a solid tabard, these new ones are split in the front.

So do these guys look like GI Joes under their skirts?  ???  I was never a fan of that style of figure, but I guess I don't mind it here where they've covered it up.  Put me down for 2x of each!

Guess I didn't know what tabard even meant  :-[  Plus I don't open my SW stuff as you know...silly wabbit - but thanks for clarifying for me Jay  :)

These were going to be the first two carded figures I was going to pass on in 08, but now I'm second guessing myself.  Looks like I may have to crack open/get rid of some other lines to make more room for 08.

The only thing thats lacking on the Anakin is the elbows. Other than that both are really supurb figures.
I remember my dream now.
