What's been "corrected" about Jango Fett? I thought color was still purple.

But he has holster straps!
Painted on his legs...

It is still purpleish in its hue but it isn't purple like the last few have been...I'll try snap some pics tonight to compare.

Here is a good comparison shot of Jango...again it is still purplish but not at all as purple as the last few Jango releases



In fact, I think they pretty much nailed it

Nice pics Scott. Overall a very solid wave - a perfect follow up to the ROTJ asst.

- Jango rocks big time love the Kamino Jetpack and gauntlets - plus the color finally looks about right
- Peasant Ani and Padmé - very detailed and very much required figures to be made/redone form AOTC
- Mace: Probably the best Sam Jackson likenesss ever
- Kit "Smily" Fisto: seems to get better with each iteration
- Senate Guard: All kinds of awesome - I've always loved the guards with the obvious Roman influence. I'll probably get a half dozen of them
- Zam: is a sweet as hell if there was any one grip it'd be the flesh tone neck when coupled with the Clawdite head, but the veil will cover that for the most part.
- Super Battle Droid: The only real snoozer of the bunch - I hope those shoulder joints aren't as brittle as previous versions and what's with the micro pistol? Don't these guys have heavy blasters built into their arms. Weird.

I absolutely love the Softgoods cloak on the Senate Guard.  I hope the inevitable Royal Guard uses the same cloth

Is it the angle or does the outer robes of the Guard seem too long?

It is fair to recognise the merit of the sculptors from this wave
Padme and Anakin very renaissance style
Jango has almost a complete paintjob on his surface, perhaps a small bit of Silver was necessary on the soles, except the heels of the shoes.
Mace is one of the best sculpted in gesture and configuration; this time he was depicted more atlhetic than previous versions.
The senate guard will serve as future background for next tfu royal guards, the face under the helmet looks nice, got the attitude of a security guard.
Fisto shares the torso of windu in certain way, except the collar zone, I wonder if the tentacles are some flexible, posable.
Also the paintjob of the tentacles is more detailed than previous versions.
Zam Wessel has got the evolution of the potj versions: more details, although darker paintjob on outfit.
Hmmm in sbd, I don´t see much difference, it could be forearms or stomach areas; but if they want to change the likeness, must develop an articulated head for this droid, or a removable one for battle damaged effects / dioramas.

Yeah, they are about a 1/2" longer than the legs...I didn't really futz with it too much for the pics but it looks better when arranged a little better
