Good grief, is that a POTF2 Weequay head?

As for the ARCs, yeah they were around but were unpredictable enough that the Kaminoans kept them in stasis until needed. They were first decanted at the First Battle of Kamino two months after Geonosis and remained active thru the rest of the war.

That's Sora Bulq's head with the POTF2's dreadlocks.

Is that an AOTC (Coruscant chase?) Obi-Wan packed in there? :o 

After sorting through the toyguide, I think that the OWK is the Outlander Nightclub version.

That's what I was thinking as well, at first glance.  At the time, I thought that figure was the best Obi-Wan we had from AOTC, but it would still be nice to see an all-new version along the lines of the ROTS Pilot figure.

Hmmm. I stand corrected.

The body for Sev is Kit Fisto, ROTS, no?

The dreds on the POTF2 weren't separate sculpts, so while they were maybe cobbled onto a Sora Bulq head (irony is that this Weequay Jedi is more articulated than any of the film ones, hah), the head itself may be a whole new tooling for it to "work".  Simply based on previous sculpts is all...  Basically a kitbash that is actually newly molded for it to be produced.

It could be that just the dreds got a new mold too though, and are made specifically to fit the Sora head which has a mold.  Either way, if this is the kind of Jedi we're getting, that's vastly superior to the first series O66 sets...  I'll take these all year long. ;)

 I am looking forward to Sev for custom fodder. It's nice to have the Kit body molded in other colors. I have made too many customs with that body. I agree Jess a much better showing than the first 66's. Now we have 3 figures more to be revealed......this should be good.

By the way the Kenobi shown is the Nightclub version which was not a bad figure. Thats not the chase Obi-Wan.

Yikes that Weequay Jedi looks bad.  I'm all for kitbashing figures from existing parts, but that color scheme makes my eyes want to vomit.  His facial expression looks like he just saw himself in the mirror and said "What the ****?"   :o

Well, there go my hopes of Hasbro packing in decent Jedi figures with these.  I guess now we'll get the ROTS Anakin with the AOTC Tusken Ambush Anakin head slapped on, a new Ratts Tyrell head on a Yoda body, and the 1997 POTF2 Palpatine figure painted red.   Oh well, at least the Clones look nice (for the most part).

Sev's head looks to be new a head, even if it's sculpted on the old POTF2 Weequay. I'm not to keen on the color of him, but the Kit body is cool. With that head you could make some better Skiff Guard to boot.

The Obi-Wan is a give, as I didn't think Hasbro would include a good version of him. We can only hope that those pictures are test shots and not what we will see. Looks to my like an old Saga version maybe the Coruscant chase kit bash of some sort :'(.

The Sev figure doesn't look too bad. The colors are kinda jarring but I'm okay with them trying a different color scheme for this body. If they have a new head, that already sets this figure apart from the throw-away Jedi figures we got last year.

The Obi-Wan definitely looks like the Outlander Nightclub Version. This confuses me actually. I figured that they would just take the ROTS Obi-Wan figure and slap on the head from the Comic 2-pack.

I'm kinda hoping that the Anakin will be a solid version of the ghost figure, just to make things different.

With how many times they are releasing the same ARC figure as part of these sets, I'm hoping that the Tsui Choi is a completely new figure. That would be the least they could do.

Actually, I am mistaken thats the CW version of Obi Wan. Look at the shoulders and the exposed hand. THIS TIME I AM 100% SURE.
