Depends on how you look at Scorch more, but for me the ability to actually pose them is nice. I'll deal with any possible inconsistancies on the armor deco then, but he looks good to me.
My old set, the figures fell easily and I had to heat/cool the feet so they were more stable. Which worked, but having the ability to do as I please with them is more fun. I've got them in a now much more realistic pose on my desk.
The armor is pretty accurate though... The RC's wear a heavier/bulkier armor to other Clones, so that's not really a bad thing, if you're looking at it from an accuracy standpoint.
They cut out some accessories like Scorch's ammo on his thigh, and Sev's ankle device, but nothing major and nothing I can't ultimately steal from the other figures to give to the new ones.
I find the colors more vibrant on these than the old set, and the guns are decoed better, but that's about it in difference in deco IMO. The poseability won me over.
