While I'm not "collecting" the animated line. I am picking up a very FEW select figures because I like their look and/or I think they can integrate easily or well enough with the realistic line.
Asaaj Ventress is one such figure.
Other than the angular shoulders and the eyes looking animated, she fits in quite well with the realistic figures. The cloth dress really helps this figure, especialy with regards to poseability. The articulation of this figure is NEAR perfect. But for elbow joints, I'd say it is a perfect figure. Her hands are a bit tiny and at least with my figure it makes it a little hard for her to hold her sabers or Dooky holo display. Still, that is manageable.
If I were grading the figure over all I'd give it a 4.75 out of 5. But for the couple of points I mentioned, she's perfect.
So for those of you who have BOUGHT her, what do you think of the figure? If you've not released her from her cardboard prison, you're missing something here. At the least if you're a carded collector, I'd say this is ONE figure you should buy an extra of to open.
