Picked these up at my local Target last night.
I'm gonna say the same thing over in the Legends figure thread, but I feel it warrants repeating....
These figures are biggest pieces of crap I have ever seen. I don't understand what the news sites have been reporting that these are "great" sculpts. Great by what standards? Compared to the 1977 ANH figures?
The Battledroids don't stand. You would think that if you're going to design these things with only 5 POA you could at least get the sculpt right so it stands. Nope - the left leg is at an odd angle and since there's no ankle articulation the foot comes down non-level with the left foot and no matter how many times I tried I could not get either the tan or red versions of balance on their own, so I eventually gave up and put them on stands.
I hope this 5POA "experiment" that Hasbro is trying blows up in their face.
This line seriously needs to take a break, maybe go to the Black Series as online only - make the case ratios 2x per case and call it a day until EP7 comes out.
Lastly what is REALLY bizarre is that the ROTS Anakin that is single carded is different from the ROTS Anakin in the mission series 2-pack. Slightly different body sculpt and all - how is wasting money on tooling up crap like this saving Hasbro any money?
