Nice! I hope the gauntlets and leggings come off of Mace, though.

Man, that Sith woman is something else...  Hasbro went all out on t hat one...  Almost all out anyway...  As all out as they go I guess.

The connecting sabres makes one unique look, and she's got decent articulation, and a damn nice sculpt...

Now, Mace...  Well, he's the only Jedi I've honestly seen and not liked from the Clone Wars...  I dig Yoda...  Obi's freaking the best Obi Wan ever, from any of the films or lines, and Anakin looked to be a great figure...

Mace is ok, he's got good qualities and all, but the flowing cloak and the neck...  I mean, Sam Jackson's not huge by any means, but he's got a neck like I did before I started playing hockey around 7th grade...  Come on man, bulk the guy up.  One can hope it's a bit early of a picture, but I'm not so sure.

Mace DOES appear to be decent custom fodder though, and I'm gonna go on a limb and bet those armor doohickeys are removeable...  Just a guess, but they are large, and sculpted ones I'd think would rest more to the body and look more natural...  Like Anakin's pilot headgear being oversized on his figure, and we KNOW that's removeable.

Mace's headsculpt looked semi-decent, so that's sort of a shame...  The only nice thing to remember is that the 3-pack Mace looks FREAKING AWESOME, so there's a nice poseable mace for you, and then his E1 versions weren't bad...  Hasbro can't do him right in the basic carded lines anymore though it seems.  

A shame...

Man, I'm gonna miss removeable blades from Sabre hilts...  It's too bad people complained about that. :(  I loved that feature, and every new figure I see with a sabre isn't gonna have that, and it bums me out...

That's just an "aside" on a whole other topic...  All brought on by these Jedi with rocking sabre hilts, but I know those blades aren't going anywhere...  :(

Asajj is the best out of the bunch followed by Obi Wan.  I kind of like Durge in a guilty pleasure sort of way and Mace looks good except for the chicken neck.

Man Mace looks like that jerk from the Indiana Pacers - Reggie Miller.

I will still get old Mace though.

I think the Asajj looks pretty cool!  Hasbro did a very nice job on what looks to be a pretty unique character from the CW cartoons.  Mace on the other hand.  Yuck.  I've got to agree with the chicken neck and Reggie Miller comparisons.  What's the deal there.  Doesn't the average Hasbro sculptor have a manager or boss that comes by to check his work?  How'd this one get through looking like this.

Just strange that these two extreme opposite figures both come from the same company!  Shows both what Hasbro is capable of doing when they apply themselves, and of course what they are capable of putting out when they decide to blow off putting their best effort into a figure, as is often the case.  Rather annoying really.

You think it would have to be approved by SOMEONE above the designer/creator of the figure, but I guess there isn't someone to give the final approval.  This is definite proof that there isn't.

i got a little lazy reading the posts...

but from the Galactic Hunter pics, anyoen else notice that mace looks to have bending elbows?

and Asajj is really great, but i wish she had amore of an angry look liek she always does in the comcis she spawned of.

I've noticed the same thing dimetrodon...

The Asajj figure looks spectacular, I really, really can't wait for it.  Her head also kinda reminds me of Sly Moore (Palpatine's aid), so that might help out customizers.

The Windu could definitely be a lot better, but like JJ said, this should be a great figure for customizing purposes.
