That illustration is done from a still from the set of E3.  In fact, I think it was one of the firts E3 images that Lucasfilm published. The comic guys get photos very early for their work.  I'm sure the illo was published before the photo.  Remember, the movie was shot in the summer of 2003.

Can you post any pics Jeff?  Or want to trade it to me for a Clone or something?   :)

Here's the pose I have mine in:



Nice and neutral. 

On the legs, he has swivel ankle joints, but no knee joints.   ::)

On the arms, he does have ball-jointed shoulders, but he has only cut-joints ont he arms.  His gun has a goofy handle that he can't really hold.  Like I said, I didn't really like any other poses I could get him in where he was holding his rocket launcher.

He looks really nice just standing there though...  :D

Hmmm...

I'm torn on liking him now.  Helmet sounds cool, arms sound passable (if you give him a new gun anyway, that gun he has is incredibly ****-tacular), but no knee articulation blows for any army builder after the greatness that is the 4/2 army builders.

Hell, even some of the non-army builders really.

Anyway, I'll take a few but I'm not going nuts with this one I think.  If I can find a good rifle for them that matches their EU appearance (or guns they have in the films...  I somehow doubt they're all packing an attomic bomb launcher like that) then I'll maybe nab more... 

The leg articulation is a bummer Jeff, sad to hear that.  The arms may be too.  Hmmm

Thanks for the pic, Jeff. I can confidently say I will stick with 2 openers and 1 carded, and pass on army building.

Wow, they really blew a golden opportunity on this one.  Sad thing is, we'll probably never see a resculpt of it giving it the glory it deserves.

Count me in for several still though, I think I can customize them to my liking.

That gun is absolutely ludicrous. When I get mine, I'll sub different blasters or maybe force pikes.

Same here - two open for a Mustafar diorama with the seperatist leader figures from the two screen scenes (minus Dooku of course) plus Wat Tambor and Lott Dodd.

So, who's excited to be getting another one of these suckers in the Final 12?  Boy, I sure am, 'cause the first one's been an absolute bitch to find so far...



Dumbasses.  ::)

The Nemoidian Solider is on a french list that's been circulating. 

Something good is going to come off those French lists eventually.
