I really like these figures.  I don't care that Anakin wasn't seen in the miovie with a mech arm and a lightsaber.  The Boba Fett looks really nice, I like the fact that Hasbro realizes that not everyone buys Real Stands, and started to make the bases. :D   Just curious what that thing dangling beneath R2 is ;).

I just hope that Fett can stand, his feet look akward.

Any thoughts on the other figures announced?

I'm definately gonna snag the Snowtrooper, Hoth Han, Vader, and Luke.

I just realized Boba Fett's helmet antenna is ARTICULATED! Awesome, now you can push it down for flight and accurate Jedi-lasso'ing!  :D ;D ;) :)

300th Fett and Jango have that articulation also.  Plus, I figured out what the thing under R2 is...it's a string lanyard.  It holds the string that runs through R2's body (that you can see coming out of the top of his dome).  There's most likely another at the other end of the string for R2's flying action feature.

  Just curious what that thing dangling beneath R2 is ;).

that sure is an unfortunate angle
it'd be kinda neat if had a 3PO head attached/included

I really like the direction they appear to be headed in :)
the Fett 'base' take the "Unleashed" concept (in a way) and adds articulation

can't wait for the Anakin. I've wanted a 'robotic arm' since I first heard about it; plus we finally get a cloak :) I just wish it was a little more 'subduded' to go w/ the upcoming 'wedding'  Padme'.

that thing from R2 is to grap 3PO's head...

I think these all look sweet, but in reality, I'm not all that excited.   There are still tons of ATOC figures we haven't seen and that are still not one of the reported 2003 figures, yet we get rehash after rehash.  

Okay, I just recounted.  We get 8 new figures out of the first 22 releases for 2003.  I guess that's not too bad.  But the library droids weren't even in the movie and where is the Lars family?  Bail Organa?  Dorme?  Poggle the Lessor?

Cool, thanks for the tip Scott!  Hmm...  A few observations here:

- Anakin:  Apparently doesn't come with a "regular" arm/hand after all - just the robotic one.  Cool touch to have the cloack removable, but it looks pretty crappy with the two big strands hanging over the front like that.

- Barriss Offee:  Her entire cloak is removable!  I had no idea this would be the case, but it's a nice option to achieve a different look for her if desired.  I prefer it on though.  Hate that dang silver magnet in her hand though.  Why not just paint the magnet a flesh color?!

- Boba Fett: The fire base is indeed removable.  Abnormally skinny legs...  The jet pack "rocket" at the top is rather oddly shaped, and might actually be a button to trigger the oft-rumored "quick draw" action feature (oh dear).  Very colorful...

- Darth Tyrannus:  Looks decent, but again with the ugly silver hand magnet.

- Flying R2-D2:  Retractable 3rd leg.  Looks like R2's "thingee" should hopefully be staying hidden within his body and serve as a "stopper" when the more authentic magnetic grappling hook on the other end (to tow 3-PO's head) is used.  Unless it serves another purpose...?  The cord (string) scrolls around a peg on his back, so best keep him facing forward.  Dare I comment on the new head?  Just a dome with some details painted on.  Not good.  Might just use this figure as a fishing lure...

I'll have to wait to get these in hand before I pass final judgement on them, but overall this wave isn't terribly exciting to me.  Barriss looks nice and the Boba Fett might have some potential, but the other three do nothing for me.  We'll see...

I think that R2 could possibly be the worst figure ever, the legs don't look like they are moveable...

Boba and Anakin look really cool.  I will for sure be keeping them...

Dooku looks strange, like his head is squashed

I hate the kiddy way these toys are going (is that a paradox) after years of being collector driven they kind of have been thumbing our noses in it

I just noticed the DRASTIC difference in the rocket on Boba Fett's jet packs, between Hasbro's published picture and the new loose ones.  You know what that means.  We're in trouble...   >:(

Yep, "pinched head" Dooku, for sure Scott!
