This figure blows. I wish they had just made the mods to the Bail Organa body and stuck the Antilles head on him. There was no need for a completely new (and inferior) sculpt.

There is a need for it b/c now Hasbro can come out with a "new" SA Antilles and we can all spend money on it too.

You are never alone when there's a clone.

No truer words have been spoken...this thing really is a step backwards, in sclupt and articulation.

Well, I still think the Bail Organa figure is too lanky.  He looks more like an NBA player than a Star Wars character.

Not saying that the Antilles is a great figure either, but I think the nice thing about Bail is the articulation.  I acutally prefer the sculpt and the cape on the Antilles figure.

I just opened this guy today, and while he's not a knowckout, I kind of like  him in a vintage figure way.  He looks better without his cloak on.

Speaking of cloaks, I just put the brown cloak that came on the switcheroo Ani-Darth Vader Deluxe on the E2 Ani from the Evo set, and it looks great.
