Clone Wars Wave 23 (2011 Fall Wave 1)
« on: April 28, 2011, 02:01 AM »
Sandtroopers.com posted a nice loose gallery of Savage Oppress images.  He looks pretty slick, and appears to come with all his weapons.  



I was a little let down by the character, but since it seems like he'll return at some point I'm glad that he's getting a figure sooner rather than later.

I guess there will be another one, with a lightsaber.

This looks like the one from the 2nd episode, witht he sith training and the crazy attack on the temple at the end.

Probably get one with his "sith"(Well he isn't a sith, but whatever haha) robes and lightsaber

Nice to finally see him tho, I was wondering why it was taking so long to see him. I thought he would have been on the shelves when the episode aired

Thanks,
Jim

Dude gets his own thread? Dayum, let the hype commence!

I can only see the tiny image on the front page here, since Sandtroopers does not want me to see their site while I am at work, damn them. But from first glance it looks freaking awesome.

I was not a huge fan of how he turned out on the show either, but the figure looks like a winner.

Why is he yellow? Wasn't he more orange?

I think he looks decent - but honestly I expected more.  Hopefully it will come in the next release of him since this is obviously just the "training" version of him.  The weapons look nice.

Cool. Another figure for me to see pictures of and then never find in the store to buy.

I think hasbro gets its jollys from showing pictures of figures we will never see at normal retail.

Ha! Maybe.

I immediately looked at the ankles, and lack of a joint there and say "it figures". Not a bad looking figure, but as an action character...at least give us Cato/Embo style ankles.

Way to yellow, hopefully the final product will be different.

Why is he yellow? Wasn't he more orange?

Oppress' colors were based on the Pittsburgh Steeler "black and gold" coloring, so he's definitely not orange, however his yellow may not be exactly right either.  I can't really say.  To me he looked ok as-is though, but maybe a comparison with a shot from the toon will help.

As far as his own thread goes...  When he is given a wave, he'll get folded into a thread for it.

I 'm liking it. I'll reserve judgement on the colors until we see official product photography of him. I'm sure the lighting and color correction applied to these first look images are not representative of the true color.

I'm telling myself the same thing.

Well it's about time! If I miss this figure I won't really mind, I want a "Sith gear" version more. This is a nice figure, but the color also seems off to me. It really looks cartoony, too, especially the facial expression. There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of wrinkling/detailing on his robe, either.

He's yellow but not lemon yellow, and not orange orange (tricks are for kids) He's supposed to be more of a canary yellow.
Looking forward to him though. I hope he has some kind of garb for his upper torso with him. These CW figures rarely get repeated so it would be nice to have him complete.
