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

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.

They still offer dial-up access?   ???  ;)

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