I really like it as well.  I am hoping the knees are articulated.  I cannot tell for sure.  Either way I will get it.  Glad Hasbro made it.

So happy that we're getting this figure, one of my favorite new characters from the toon (even if he was short-lived).  I keep thinking I'm going to cut back (or cut out) this line, but it keeps dragging me back in :).

Was it Ackbar?  Ithought it was the Emperor.

There was Ackbar, The Emperor, Nien Nunb and Anakin Skywalker for ROTJ.

That's right....man that brings me back.  I sent away for all but the Anakin (stopped collecting at that time).

Wow.  Even Kenner screwed up the name back in the day?

If you're referring to Revenge of the Jedi, that's no screw up.

Lucasfilm screwed up.  It's been rewritten since, but the title was Revenge of the Jedi, but Lucasfilm was flooded with mail saying that Jedi don't take revenge.  Therefore it was changed, after the marketing started.  Lucasfilm spun it so that it seemed that it was always their intention to have it be "Return."

Yeah, I watched EMPIRE OF DREAMS recently and the whole REVENGE issue came up, and how it was the working title until shortly before the film came out.

Going off-topic for a second, but that's one of the key things that bugs the living **** out of me concerning the SW films: Lucas and LFL's insistence that everything was always intended to be exactly the way it turned out, and that stories to the contrary are just rumors and fan-created legend.  Between the whole "there were never going to be 9 episodes, only 6 episodes" mantra, and the "I had this all planned out from the beginning" nonsense, I sometimes wonder if ol' George hasn't gone senile a little early.  I guess when you have an army of "yes-men" surrounding you, it's easy to lose touch with reality.

In the new "Art of the Clone Wars" book, Lucas claims in the Foreword that he always had intended the Clone Wars to be between Jedi/Clones and an army of Battle Droids. 

In honor of George Lucas, I'm henceforth claiming that I always planned for my life to be a series of catastrophic emotional failures, and that any claims to the contrary are fanboy delusion. :)

Looks like a good figure - would look great next to Kit Fisto or fighting Grievous. Doesn't look like it has articulated ankles and knees, though. Maybe Hasbro can inlclude a fold out 3-D display like they did with the Captain Rex promotional figure!
