The making-of documentary's really good for people to learn the process they make figures by. It's been posted on the net before how it's done, so most folks enjoying hte hobby know the general routine, but the Insider's showing a lot of stuff unseen to most before so I think the article will be informative for the majority.
I've seen every production process's step at one point or another for various toy lines (including Star Wars), but I still found this article pretty enjoyable. It's neat seeing the concept drawings and how the designers envision the toy much the same way film-makers draw out a sequence of events on storyboard for a film.
it's a neat read even if you just check it real quick at the newsstands. And it's only part I of a multi-part mini-article, so check it out if you have time.
The shots of the preview wave that we've seen so far online don't do the figures justice, judging by the shots in Insider. Really nice stuff shown there, and the Wookie and Greivous look ten times better than before IMO.
The Jedi Fighter (Anakin's) I'm not sure on. R2 looks like he just plugs into this ship, but that it doesn't have a bottom to it and like R2's lower half is just gone... This makes me think the ship is way underscale, but I don't know enough about it to say at this point. If it is though, I'm disappointed because NO fighter should be underscaled given what is put out by other companies. Plus this thing DOESN'T look big in any shot I've ever seen, so I don't know.
Just seems odd.
Oh, and Obi's Astromech has the hoses on his feet. I didn't notice that till now, but he's a really nice looking figure. Best astromech ever possibly.
