Hasbro has fulfilled a long held dream by completeing the E1 Jedi Council.  These are fantastic figures.  It's a crime distribution sucks right now, because these are some of the best work Hasbro has ever done.  I just hope these make it to the shelves.  Me, I'm not going to wait.  The second they go up for preorder at NewForce, they're mine.

Very nice looking indeed!  Here's a link to Sandtroopers.com.  You'll have to head over there to see these great shots for yourself, as we'll try our best to refrain from swiping their great pictures from them - at least for a little while...   ;)

This second Jedi Council set consists of a seated Yarael Poof and Yaddle, with a standing Depa Billaba.  Yarael's neck is a little on the short side, and it's a little disconcerting that it appears that Depa will not be able to ever sit down in a Jedi Council chair...  Otherwise, most excellent!

The Second Separatist War Room set consists of Nute Gunray (yawn), Shu Mai, and Passel Argente.

Some great choices there - most of which we were begging for after the earlier pictures of the first half of these sets a couple months ago at the Hasbro Press Event!  Well done Hasbro.  Now just do us all a big favor, and get these things out and available to the masses at retail please!   8)

These 3-packs are prime examples of what Hasbro COULD be doing.  They're maybe still not all "perfect" figures, but they're damn close to it.

Too bad this isn't the quality we get ALL the time.

I stll stay that Mace in the 1st set is one of the most awesome SW figures I've seen, and Jedi robes that are cloth, look good, and let the figure SIT!?!?!?!?!

wha wha wha!??  

Yes, Hasbro can amaze when they wish to...  Unfortunately, for every one of these sets, there's a clone 3-pack of unposeable figures.  Eh, maybe a "great" white clone will float our way some day. :)  Till then, I'm gonna call that 3-pack as I see it...  Lil bag 'o white army men.  At least I'm hearing it has some interesting articulation though, and it serves some kind of a purpose.

It's just not quite as great as it could've been, considering it could've been as great as these screen scenes appear to be turning out.

These sets look amazing! I can't wait to have a completed episode 1 jedi council. If this is how all the screen scenes look like, I can't wait. I'm most excited about Yarael Poof and Shu Mai.  :)

Here are official pictures of these two new sets.  These come from the official Japan Tomy Star Wars site.

If Yarael Poof and Yaddle can stand and be posed with some lightsabers from the accessory packs, then this is hands down the most exciting release of the year for me.  Yareal Poof looks awesome.

Shu Mai and Passel Argente look great too.  If you read The Approaching Storm, you know we got a little more insight into Shu Mai, that book made me want this figure even more.  She's like a ruthless little anorexic smurf, but cooler.

These sets look amazing, I really hope that the Screen Scenes line continues, because the quality from the pictures we have seen looks great.  Always glad to have more Jedi, and to be able to complete the council.  I was going to wait and see if I could find these things in the store, but with the way retail has been this year, I think I might have to preorder the first sets, as well as these when they come up.  Good job Hasbro.
