Rebelscum has them posted.  I could do it but I'm not going to spend an hour painting faces...  I could always swap the dooku one though...

EDIT:  I'm suddenly inspired - I got pictures of all the Saga equivalents and when I find a little downtime at work I'll see what I can do.  I should be able to make them look just like they will (with the wrong color outfits probably...)

Yeah, a link to the scum forum - but I didn't know how else to show these pics.  These look very promising to me!

They look really good.  Too bad they're going to be more money.

Thanks for the link.  Although we haven't seen the "final", painted versions, so far so good.  At least with the 3 we see here, they are neutrally posed, with good articulation from the looks of it.  I hope this is the trend for Episode III figures.  If they are all done in this style, and the final versions turn out to be as good as they could be from the looks of the initial sculpts, it could be a really great line.  Hopefully they won't be $10 each. ;)

Kinda sloppy - but here's the first one.

The head and textures come from the SAGA Palpatine:



The V-shaped crest on the cloak isn't part of the sculpt - but it was easier to just use it from the old figure - you get the gist...  You can also see a 3d V shape at the bottom of the actual sculpted cloak - I didn't bother to separate those two regions and make patterns for them - so they just bled together into one item on the painting...

More when I have time - I can probably do the second one later on today or tomorrow...

quick and dirty, even sloppier than zod:







looks like dooku's torso area is the same sculpt as the first dooku figure.

Wow, the articulation looks outstanding!  Nice, neutral poses, good detail.  Looking pretty great so far.  If this is the direction Hasbro's going to be taking with the line, including future OT figures, then I can probably stomach a buck or two price increase.

What's interesting, is that at Comic Con, Hasbro said they'd be running the Collection 1 and 2 assortments again, similar to Saga, and that they'd be returning to the dreaded Action Features.  A couple of these are certainly "main characters" (Dooku, Palpy), so to see them looking like this either means they'll be in Collection 2 (in addition to Collection 1), or just that the Action Features aren't going to be as prominent as we're all fearing.

Either way, these look pretty sharp.  Looking forward to seeing the real thing now...   8)

P.S.  I'm going to throw "Chubba's" colorizing request on these in here (from the Watto's general board) and merge it with Justin's thread, since they're on the same figures.  Hope you guys are cool with that...   :-*

I'm gonna guess it's new because the sockets for the shoulders would need indented...  Technically they don't really "retool" molds, so I don't think it's possible to really tweak it, but they could've used it as the base when sculpting.

It looks great...  Nice photoshopping, especially on the Palpatine, Zod.

Nice to see SA figures...  Palps is a bit odd looking though.

Palpy has articulated knees - a nice touch.

Well it finally looks like these figures are going to have some added articulation.  Bail looks great.  Especially the cape!

I agree. I only hope they improve their painting techniques other-wise these great sculpts are worthless.
