Kit in the concept book is shirtless because he's swimming so I figure that's what they're going with.  I'm cool with him as is, because he looks to be good custom fodder, though a "poseable" Kit would be nice someday considering how crap his Saga figure is. :(

Actually, I hope Saesee does have cloth robes. That way he'll fit in the Jedi Starfighter, since he's supposed to be one of the Jedi Order's best pilots.

Yep, Saesee would look cool in a Starfighter.

So what's going on, you low down dirty Scoundrel??

Well having seen the New pics i have a new/more comments to make.

the Kit Fisto, although having a he-man name... is really cool.. hehe.
yes very similar to the concept art also..
i too would like more articulation on him though, ball joint arms would have been nice..
he does have ankles though, i guess thats a plus... especially because its on both of them.
maybe Hasbro is learning to do equal articulation on both sides of a figure...

Saesee does have cloth, and that will enable him to lead your Jedi Starfighters into dog fights..
it looks pretty good and a lil ragged.. but considering its mid war, that is good.. but the material appears to be some what thin.
oh well i guess.
oh and the headgear looks to be removeable as a backside headshot reveals.
but i guess only time will truly tell.

Yeah, Saesee jumped 10x in my opinion.  I like him even more than Kit at this point.

That looks to be one VERY poseable figure.  

I wish the Saga Jedi for last year had this much attention paid to them...  The Clone Wars Jedi strike me as some very nice figures...  If we'd gotten a Kit Fisto in his Jedi Garb like that, or Nikto Jedi, or Shaak Ti, or whoever...  I'd have liked to see poseable versions of ALL those figures.  Instead it was the pre-posed figures of 2002 who aren't likely to see many (if any) resculpts.   :(

The Jedi rocked all in the movie, too bad their respective figures couldn't say the same.

Same old, same old, CHEWIE. Can't wait for this new stuff to be in my collection. I'm sick of seeing Jango Pilot on the pegs! :P

BEST SAE-SAE TIIN YET
« Reply #36 on: December 10, 2003, 11:21 PM »
Yep, I think that this is by far the best Sae Sae Tiin figure that Hasbro has produced.  I didn't really feel that way until I opened him, here's why I like him so much:

- all of his guantlets are removable
- his headgreat is removable
- his cloth skirt looks cool, but plastic might have been better
- he can hold his lightsaber with both hands
- he has articulated wrists AND elbows
- he looks pissed off
- his broken off horn looks very cool
- his lightsaber blade is removable
- he does NOT look like an EU figure at all with his extra gear removed

Yep, this is a must have guys!  Definitely pick this guy up, he's worth it.

 :P

I agree.  This figure proves a few things in my book.

1) Soft Goods skirts for Jedi can work well I think...  Colors match well, and look good I think, and if we got at least one well articulated soft-goods Jedi figure of every Jedi, I'd be much happier with the Jedi figures.  Awesome sculpts on some Jedi have been sorely hampered by lacking articulation or robes that do nothing but hinder the figure's poseability.

2) ALLLLLLLLLL Jedi should have arm articulation enough to hold a sabre with 2 hands and still pose their arms at their sides.  All of them having ankle articulation (ball/socket) would also help very much in the poseability department, but the arms are key.

3) The jedi pilot headgear does NOT need to be bulky and stupid looking to be removable.  

4) Armor doesn't have to be bulky and stupid looking either for it to come off.

5) This figure is more fun than ANY Saga Jedi figure I bought last year.  Hands down.  I wish they were more like CW Sae Sae Tinn.  He's a good one.

This has been (other than the SA Clone) my most anticipated CW figure, and I am not disappointed at all. I think the soft goods works very well, especially since he's a pilot, and should be able to sit in the jedi starfighter. I like him so much I may even customize a red starfighter just for him.

This figure really shows to me that someone at Hasbro is using their head. He's a realistic Clone Wars figure. He doesn't look EU. The broken horn looks great, and the face sculpt alone gives us more character development that we've ever seen on film.

I hasbro decides to continue the CW line at some point, I hope they use this amount of imagination, other than just giving us Batman style add-ons.

I just got this Saesee Tiin (note spelling, Saesee Tiin  ;D ), and this is a great figure!  It has definitely exceeded expectations in terms of sculpting, articulation, and the execution of the softgoods.  I'd like to get a couple more, and I think I may "retire" my POTJ and SAGA versions.  There's just the matter of the broken horn.

I have one gripe, and I think it's a legitimate one:  he doesn't fit in my Jedi Starfighter's cockpit.  Saesee  Tiin's bio states that he's one of the greatest pilots of the Jedi order.  He's even depicted in the Clone Wars cartoon piloting a Jedi Starfighter.  Well, I tried putting him in the cockpit, and the canopy won't snap shut.  ::)

At first SST would not fit in my Blue Starfighter as well. I found out if you push him in all the way and slightly make him sit up and not against the seatback he fits rather well and the canopy shuts all the way. It looks as if he is leaning foward to look out but it works.

I really like this figure.

I'm glad to see that everyone seems to agree that this is the best Saesee Tiin (thanks Nicklab) yet.  It's much better than the POTJ or SAGA versions.

He has even found a home in my Arena Diorama, I find this version to be much more appealing. :D

Mine still doesn't fit.  And that's in both my red SAGA one, and the blue Clone Wars Jedi Starfighter.
