We're in for a pretty big year for figures.  Among maybe the best figures of the modern line, period.  As happy as I am to see such greatness in the figure world, there's part of me that just feels "cheated" that the classic trilogy doesn't really have basic figures this nice...  not in great abundance at least.

Off-hand, I'd only label the Cantina wave and VOTC as being near the caliber of the basic figures (and VOTC shouldn't count since they were $10 a pop) we've seen for E3...  I mean, even the C1 figures don't look BAD like they did for AOTC's lineup.

I really hope this is something that carries over, and that we start seeing new, and resculpted figures from the classic trilogy that rival or surpass a lot of these ROTS figures.

Holy crap, that's a neutral Mace Windu :o

Hmm, wonder how they'll screw it up...

The action feature might.

Well, the action feature is a leg squeeze action - I think it will be ok.   :)

Lots of great pics, thanks Chris.  The more I see of the ROTS line, the more I'm getting excited for it.  There aren't too many "stinkers" of figures yet, at least from what we have been able to tell from pictures.  Could be an expensive year, but this should be the last movie, so it can be a nice last hurrah for the big merchandising push we'll see.  Although I'm not complaining about all the pics we've been getting, is there going to be much left to "reveal" at Toy Fair this year?  Its always nice to get some different views of these figures if nothing else, but hopefully there will be a few new viewings and/or surprises.

I was shocked myself when I saw the Mace Windu figure.  I couldn't believe he didn't look like Michael Jordan dunking a ball, and there wasn't the popsicle stick sticking out of his back.  A nice, neutral pose.  FINALLY!

I'm really impressed with these figures.  Just about all of them are totally new figures with new sculpts, and may Hasbro has finally be hearing our cries about rehashed figures.  Could this be the start of something beautiful for us Star Wars collectors?

Let's just hope they continue with what there doing and don't stab us in the back later with rehashes.

Very nice pics Chris, Thanks.  8)

I'm kinda liking the look of that R2-D2 "Droid Attack" figure... at least he's different from the countless other R2's.  I really don't mind scene specific R2 at this point because I have so many of the little guy already...

I saw that as well.  Maybe it's just a prototype and they still had one of POTJ yellow saber from Plo Koon still lying around.  That or it's just lighting? 

By the way I really want this Agen Kolar figure.  I'm probably in the minority but he's on my list of figs to get right away.

Agen Kolar looks great.  I want several of them - including 3-4 extras for custom Jedi.  What a great looking robed Jedi.
