It's like the Disney costume department mixed up his shirt and pants. Poor cast member. He will be laughed at by the Innoventions cast members.

Neat.  If it's anything like the exclusive Transformers repaints that sometimes leak, the head probably isn't final.  Or at least, I hope it isn't final.  Nice idea, you can kinda make out the Star Tours patch on his sleeve.

I think a better body would have been Willrow Hood. His uniform is closer in match to the real thing.

Perhaps, but he's got a wee bit of a gut.

Yeah but that does match some of the people working there. No offense to them, I would be really excited if they reused that tool.

A brightly repainted figure from 1999? 

C'mon Rob, it was 2001. He is only 9 years old.

I stand corrected.  He's like 15% less lame than I thought.

(But that still leaves an awful lot)

Uck.

Couldn't they have reused something better.  The Rebel Hangar Tech from the Scramble on Yavin battle pack would have been much better.

I'm curious what the other figures in the set will ultimately turn out to be.  That may be a major reason why they're using the figure they are, as Hasbro's said in the past that sometimes when they put together a pack like this they're limited to the molds they have on-hand for certain figures.

I've gotta see something else from the set to gauge my interest in it ultimately, but right now the orange/blue Imp Officer ain't flyin' with me much.  Then again I really think the whole Star Tours thing is kinda meh anyway.  I liked half the droids they put out well enough, and I thought one or two of them were actually really fantastic, but yeah, the guy there is pretty lame.

I wouldn't count on that figure changing either...  Generally what gets out there like that is the final product, especially considering the hat's paintjob, the new hair color, etc.

Agreed.  Hasbro saved money by using this guy's outdated mold so they can create an all new tool for Teek!

atleast that is what i hoping for...   ;D

Well I just ordered a Teek.  Because I'm extremely impatient.   (Or extremely patient, depending on your perspective when it comes to time waited.)  Got an orange dude too.  I'll probably buy the set when it hits, but it's reaaaaaaaally hard to say no to Teek.  The Kaink looked good and if she had her gear I'd shell out for her early...
