Saga Character Collectibles?

Does anyone here own any of these figures?  I was in a Sam Goody music store the other day, and I noticed they had Jango Fett and Obi Wan Kenobi.  They look pretty cool, but they're not your typical 12" figures.  They seem to be a combination of a standard 12" figure and the Unleashed series.  They're selling them for $13 a piece, and I wonder what people think about these figs.

Here's a picture of Jango Fett taken from ArtoosNews...

I have seen these also. I think the other two are Mace Windu and Anakin. They look good but I never bought one.

They have made...

Jango Fett
Anakin Skywalker
Mace Windu
Darth Vader

I thought they also made Obi Wan Kenobi, but I was incorrect about that.  My bad.

wal-mart has similar items. i've seen them called 10 inch figs. I dunno, I'm not down with them. simply cause they are so close to thr 12", and I dont want to buy both, so i'd rather just get the cooler looking 12" figs.

I have all 4 and the mace and anakin stink. The likeness of both are not very good and they have zero articulation. The jango and vader are better, you can move jangos arms and his helmet is removeable and the vader well is just vader and thats cool in itself.

I still haven't gotten any of these because I'm not sure if they're really worth the $12 a piece or not.

I have never gotten these as I handled the Anakin that was out of the box and laying in the "reduced for quick sale" cart at Walmart and the sculpt was aweful and the pose was crappy.  I don't even know his price as the box was laying next to him but I do know it wasn't free and that would be the ONLY way I'd take it home!!  

I'm not sure if Hasbro was trying for a larger "epic force" type toy to see how the consumer would react or what but I don't think they sold well, at least not around here.

I've got Jango of course. The lack of articulation really kind of reminds me of those crappy Applause "character collectibles".

Jango's arms move, thats it. His helmet is a little too small, so you have to angle it down just to cover his neck, which looks kinda weird, and the guns are molded in his hands.

If you're a carded collector, I'd say go for it, if you haven't already because it looks cool with the background.

Otherwise, pass because he's in such a funny scale, it makes him look anorexic.

That's a very unique description of Jango there...  ;D

Anyone have pics?  I'm totally lost as to what it is you're talking about.  (And yes, I do realize this thread is like 2 years old, but oh well :))
