Just a heads-up on the next wave of Collection 1 that is already out in some areas. I found the wave (Explodo-Grievous, CC, CP, and the Palpatine) yesterday at WM buried behind all the usual figures on the front. And yes, for those of you who don't have it yet, I think you will really enjoy the Clone Commander, but I'm also going to come out and say that I think the Clone Pilot isn't so great. I know he's going to be sitting in a seat all the time, but still, they could have at least made his head turnable.
So, my question/statement is this:
1. (the question) Has the Palpatine with the correct (his own) saber been spotted anywhere. I was really hoping that the red saber would be hidden behind the photo inlay, but no such lucky, and I am really pissed off about this, as it is a figure I really wanted badly.
2. (the statement) I also wanted to give everyone a heads-up on the Explodo-Grievous. You're going to want to keep a couple of those clear rubber bands hanging around for this figure, because he doesn't exactly hold together too well. There is a small magnet on the base of his spine that connects with where (I guess) his coccyx (sp?) would be, but it's not all that strong, and his upper torso doesn't hold together too well under the weight of the cloak. It's not Saga Mace Windu's Battle Droid bad, but it's not that far from it.
