I wish we had clearer pictures and closeups of the back of the cards.

Well, I don't like action features, but at this point to me at least all signs do point to an improvement over the EP2 action features.

I never did mind the action features that the Dooku figures had - in fact, I thought those ones were cool.


Here's what I think about these figures -

Tion - very cool

R2 unit - done before, but nice addition for astromech variety

Obi Wan - not too bad, but the shoulders look out of whack, kind of like the POTJ Quit Gon

Mace - looks like the absolute best Mace Windu figure ever


I say bring 'em on!!

If I were Donald Trump I'd own them.

Hell, I'd hire professional model builders to make my own playsets and Sail Barge too!

If I was Donald Trump I'd be with Melania right now... ;)

The figures look pretty good carded, however I plan on ripping them all right off.

Cards are okay... but I'm sure they'll be changed soon. I mean, we only had a gazillion changes to the cards during the Saga era.

The Sneak figs are awesome, bring them on. The Basic figs look okay so far, but I'll wait and judge them once better pics come out.

Rebelscum has pics from a pack-in booklet that shows a few Episode III preview figures.

Anakin's J-TIE (Since it's a twin ion engine fighter and a Jedi fighter I figured it's an appropriate name) looks REALLY REALLY REALLY good looking. The detail seems to be that of a, dare I say it, BBi or 21st Century offering. For some reason I think it looks wonderful.
I forsee a fleet of about 5.

The Wookie Supersoaker is also a nice touch. I think I may pick one of those up just for the heck of it.

From all indications the Episode III line is going to be great.

Those Preview figures look better and better each time I see them - and the ship looks freaking cool.

Thanks for the link Mikey.  It is nice to keep getting early looks at some of these figures.  "Firing Force Lightning" and "Droid Attack"?  shudder  I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt for now though.  Clearer pics than the last batch though...I see they have a link within that thread to a little bit clearer pic of Obi-Wan's cardback, with a Darth Vader figure included on the back.Clicky

They also now have the cardback for the Chewbacca figure up at THIS LINK.  Looks like he is pretty well articulated, but also with a squeeze of the legs you can get some "wookiee rage", or excuse me "WOOKIEE RAGE!" action.  Could really do without the action features, but I guess Super Powers style isn't quite as bad.  Might be able to still have halfway normal figures out of them.

Man, it seems like every figure so far (except maybe R2D2) is gonna rock!

Woah, these pics are coming really soon, eh? Ah well, maybe we'll start to see some vehicles soon enough.
