The result is that now we have three (four if you include the space suit version) iterations of Clone Wars Anakin - and there's something not to like about each of them.


This is why unless I am blown away I am not buying any more "basic" Anakin, Obi's, or Ashokas. We have plenty already, and with episode specific decos like the aqua suits coming up, plus the inevitable pack ins with battle packs and deluxe sets I will likely end up with 2 of these without buying the card before the line ends. Give me new characters and I will buy them by the cartload.

Six if you include the Orto Plutonia (snow gear) and Naboo Star Skiff outfits.  :P

True - sorry - I was thinking about only the ones where it's Anakin in his main/primary outfit. There is a fifth one - the one that came with the STAP - that one has to be my favorite - soft goods and the best articulation of any of them, too bad the head sculpt is the first version.

Skinnier? Guess Hasbro thinks the cameras add 10 pounds.

Yeah, Anakin sure has a lot of different renditions with that regular season 1-2 outfit. There are also the ones that came with the Desert Skiff wearing the poncho and wacky Vader-esque mask as well as in the Vulture Claw battle pack with poncho.

I would definitely like to see a side-by-side comparison of this new Anakin and the most recent one from the SOTDS line.  Aside from the new accessory, the differences are lost on me.

I can do that.  ;) (The new one is on the right in the comparison shot.)

*Sigh*

So it really is a new figure.  How about the new Obi-Wan?  Are we looking at the same sort of situation?

Yep, Obi-Wan gets a similar retool.
