The photo does not show the neck details, hope the toy has one. This skiff master has to be considered an evolution of the weequay, so the vintage guy will be waiting for an update.

The kind of articulation: For the shape of the pants, knee joints are somekind disimulated, sometimes elbows joints diminish the pointy part of elbows, but could compensate it with more posability.

I like the colors and the way the vest, jacket is presented.

I will buy this figure.

I know, funny life is very challenging (specially for sculptors)

Not loving Lando's cape but really loving the likeness of Luke...same gripe about the weathering of the helmet

The helmet weathering really kills me because they kind of did a decent recreation (not just a black wash but really some scuffing damage) to the Titanium Hoth Luke that was out and somewhat limited in number. 

I like that Lando's cape is cloth, I really do, but that goofy elastic-looking neck bit is looking worse every time I see it.  Love the cape's cloth choice, just not that last bit.  That picture highlights it even more to me.

I have been quietly waiting for General Lando for a while.  Lando in Any ROTJ costume is always welcome especially with this level of articulation.

After seeing the new style of Clone body I will definitley be rebuilding my entire army to phase out the old one. It will be a long and expensive endeavor but the new body sculpt blows away the old one. I will liquidate my old troops to fund the new one. The only problem will be availability of the new trooper, I hope they offer a collectors case of just troopers to make this easier.

It's exciting to know this wave is not to far from release!

That Luke sculpt is amazing.  Was he a prototype or shots from tooling?

At the present time I plan to get the new clones to supplement my old clone armies, but I can easily see myself selling all my old troopers and going all out on the new ones once they're released.

Agreed... the cloth is good but this linkage on the outside is not good.

Couldn't be sewn on on the inside and then set over Lando's neck?

For my collection I only want the best of the best. It's by choice but that is how I run my collection, it's not for everyone but that's the kind of collector that I am. When I compare the 2004 Clone to this new body there is no question in my mind that it dates it. On top of that I am a big stickler for consistency in my collection so I like matching troops.

We might be able to turn the cape inside out...

That may work...but isn't the most accurate...



Not sure why they didn't do something like the latest Dooku

Sucker.

It's by choice. I only want the best representation in my collection.

In regards to Scott's post I agree that they should have used the new sculpts but based on my Industry experience there are many reasons why they use older sculpts in value sets like the BR sets. Often times once an item is produced factories will grandfather in pricing on the item in the year it was made insulating it from inflation. When changes are made, even minor deco they are subject to current price.

These sets are made for a promotional value proposition and incremental sales so I am not surprised they are reusing older decos/figures. The Tan Battle Droid can be considered new, I wish there was more of that I would have bought into these. I am glad to see the Resurgence Luke is making a comeback
