I gotta say, not one of those figures disappoints, especially the Cemetary Warrior and Russians...
Tonight I nabbed a 2nd Russian soldier and the Cemetary Warrior, and the Cemetary Warrior is pretty weird. First I noticed his skull mask is not a sculpted-on piece. It's separate, and glued to his face. I pried at it a little with my pocket knife and could see that he indeed has a full face sculpt underneath the skull mask... Why? Why wouldn't they just sculpt the mask to the face rather than going through the extra tooling of the piece itself, and the extra labor to glue the piece to the face? It sounds small, but it ultimately was a very unnecessary step unless there's some other plan for this figure?
The other thing, along the same lines as the above, is that he has a separately sculpted shirt... Why? Prying up on the shirt a bit to see, and ultimately he does have a sculpted body underneath with lots of detail it seems. You can't take the shirt off though and have him look normal, due to the arms, but the shirt is a separate piece for no really explainable reason. Why sculpt it and put it on over another torso? It adds a cost of tooling the shirt to go over the body when you could've just sculpted the shirt as the torso itself. Why? Unless there's plans to use the body underneath at some point for something else?
Anyway, I found this figure INSANELY cool even without seeing the film. As a customizer, it's excellent Star Wars fodder, and as an action figure in general is is simply outstanding. Super articulated, lots of detail, nice painting, a couple neat accessories (a knife woulda been cool as the pic on the back he has a knife), and really just a great figure.
The Russian, as always, is a great figure, and it's being gobbled up by a whole other set of collectors, so if you see it I suggest nabbing one if you want it.
