MJ, can you snap any shots "upskirt" on the Jedi to see the new toolings on the legs?  I'm kind of curious how the joints look on these, and if they're better than Luke 2004's were.

Just for the record I felt really wrong taking these pics. But here's the "upskirt" view. Sorry the pics aren't that great.

Got to open an Obi wan, Vader and Lava droid, the SA hip make a world of difference, truly well done. We'll never need another ROTS Obi Wan. I agree with Rob though that Vader could have used better elbows.

Anyone care to comment on how well the Panning Droid parts work with their respective Jedi? Foot pegs? Stands? etc.

I cannot wait to get these for customs purposes. I hope this is the new staple for all upcoming Jedi. Nice job Hasbro on selling me the same characters again!

You'll have about 200 more cracks at them, they'll be clogging the pegs until about November.

Thanks for the pics...  Interesting.  They look better designed in that "region" than VOTC Luke was, which was what I was hoping for.  I thought the Luke's joints were sort of ugly looking if you could see them.  These look just better designed in general, so that's definitely a positive.

I haven't put my guys on the the droid, but both the droid and the platform have two or more pegs. I'd imagine the tough part would be balancing on both.

Here's my two cents:





Scale is a bit of an issue this round!

Interesting stuff...  Hmmm...

Height does seem...  Off.  On the clone anyway.  A droid is what it is, I can sort of blow that off, but the clone's more than a tad disappointing.

The more I look at it, the more it bothers me...  Thanks for the pictures Matt, they really illustrate how off these two are.  The 2-1B droid at the Science Meets Imagination tour is NOT small.  Not that small anyway.  Definitely around average human size, which the original 2-1B wasn't overly large, so I really think that new one's way undersized if they're supposedly the same droid type.  Far worse than the Clone.

however, the Clone's more annoying to me because, well, why the hell is a clone shorter than another Clone.  The biker Scout Sculpt's not absurdly tall or anything, it's right around every Clone-ish type trooper.  So yeah, that figure's pretty small. 

Maybe he's a clone of Commander Cody since, well, his figure isn't exactly winning height contests either.  ::)

Whoa.

Well ****.

That Gree vs. Kashyyyk clone shot really bugs me.  They should be the same height.  How the hell did Hasbro screw that one up?

I can't see myself buying a ton of the Kashyyyk clone now, and it's a damn shame too.
