Well it was a crap creature when it came with Yoda back on '05.

I plan to see this peg warming.

I believe this is the Deluxe assortment that Hasbro confirmed in a Q&A a while back. I'm not too keen on this particular set, but with that package I can see a number of nice Clone Wars items coming from this line. Hopefully Hasbro is smart enough to extend the concept to the Legacy line.

I'm not paying for action figures made out of cardboard!   :D

Yeah, I'm kinda digging the thought of "deluxe" making a comeback, even though it's not always done well at retail...  I can see a new speederbike making the rounds though, and I have a feeling kids will dig Anakin on the bug.  I just hope there's more than CW figures making the rounds in the deluxe line-up.

Pretty cool. I'm glad I didn't buy the STAP set to get the Anakin with articulated knees since they're probably giving him the knee articulation here too. And I passed on the bug back in 2005 because of the crappy Yoda so I'm looking forward to buying this one.

I don't think I ever bought a second Yoda one to open when it came out.

Exactly.  This is where I draw the line.   >:(

Seriously though - easy pass for me.

That's funny stuff.   ;D  I'm not mcloving this fig - will be an easy pass if there's nothing different versus the old can-cel and Anakin a redo.

Is it just me, or is Hasbro going WAAAAY overboard with the packaging?  Didn't they make some comment about how they were trying to be green?  That's a huge box for such a tiny toy.  It fit fine on a card before, but this is just gross.

I agree with Sal on this completely.  The Can-Cell is one of the most annoying creatures (toy-wise) that Hasbro has made, and I'm sure that given their tremendous track record with fixing problems with old toys (yellow Anakin JSF sticker sheet with blue Obi-Wan JSF toy, I'm looking at you), this version will be the same old toy with the same old problems: loose joints, bizarre wing construction, and eventual wing warpage.

I'm going to go on the record here and place my bets on the "new deluxe" line being 15 bucks easy.  Less is more these days, you know.   :P

First time for me hearing that

Easily - especially considering the boxed packaging.  Good call.

I think this mockup is a little misleading in terms of scale. I suspect the cardboard figure stand-in is maybe 80-90% of actual size and is giving the illusion of the packaging overkill.

I hope something gets packaged with a Crab Droid.  I want to pick up a few of those!
