Yeah, Obi-Wan with Clone Armor is in the Jedi vs. Separatist Battle Pack.  And, yes, his "amor" is ugly.   :(

Yeah, I'd say he looks less than spectacular there.  But at least Hasbro's showing that they've realized that there's a desire to see this figure made.  So hopefully that's a good sign that he'll eventually show up in the animated line as well, at some point in the future.

BTW, is that the exact same Asajj that we got the first time through?  She looks slightly different for some reason.

Looking at that Armored Obi-Wan pic again, that figure really does look fairly craptastic.  I mean, I would really like to see a nice version of this figure (particularly in the Animated line)...but this is basically just an old Obi-Wan figure modified with the chest plate/cape, and then they gave him the removable armor from the Clone w/Speeder bike from a couple of years ago.  At least, that is how it appears to me.  I didn't look that close at that pic the first time, but after looking again, it could have been so much nicer.

I don't know but that Clone Wars set is interesting to me.  I like the Anakin, I don't have Asajj, and the Kenobi will do for me, Yoda is different to I believe. 

The Anakin to Vader set looks nice to me.

Well I have to say that the Anakin looks great, and I really like the changes on Asajj Ventress.  I thought that was a new figure, and it is.  I like this one so much more.

As for Obi Wan... meh, that's why customizing is so fun.

I've got high hopes for that Evolutions pack turning out to have good SA versions of Anakin, but this has me seriously concerned:


Clone Wars Anakin

That is supposed to be Anakin? Holy God. If they use a similar headsculpt for the Evo set, my hopes are going down in a fiery blaze.

I agree that's not a great likeness... looks like a different character.  Might need to do a head swap on this one.  Looks like this one has a ball jointed head, no?

Okay, so in one pack we've got:

1.  Yavin 4 Anakin with someone's head who isn't Anakin
2.  The worst execution of a much requested figure EVER
3.  The third release of the SP Grievous in three months
4.  The Saga Padawan 2-pack Yoda
5.  A slightly repainted Asaaj Ventress

Then, later down the line we get the second pack...

1.  The biggest pegwarmer of Saga overall (Mace)
2.  The worst of the Jango Fett figures (well, second worst)
3.  Another Maul (probably the MOTDS figure)
4.  The crappy Deluxe Anakin from Saga
5.  An unidentified Obi-Wan that is more than likely a rehash

You know, they do stuff like the 12" Sidious, the ARC-170, and all the Collection 2 ROTS stuff and you think, "Maybe they've figured it out."  Then you see this kind of crap and realize they aren't even close to figuring it out.  ::)

They couldn't have just put an Obi-Wan head on an SA Clone body? Even a regular Clone? Ugh.

Pass on everything. If it isn't a rerelease, it looks like crap.

Yeah I was thinking a headswap may be in order too.  I'm not terribly displeased with the Anakin and Obi, but if anything comes of this I now would like more realistic CW figures...

The paint on those examples is definitely hand-painted (not even very well might i add) so I wouldn't expect the final ones to look that way.  Sadly though, the hand-painted copies often look BETTER than the production samples, so that has me a tad worried that Anakin and Obi are really gonna blow when we see the final figures.

The Evolutions set looks very nice.  The Battle Packs blow.

Hmmm, I had not seen the close up of the face.  That CANNOT be the final product.

Just a quick thought (and someone with access to the poster can confirm this): is that the head of Zett Jukassa (Lucas' son) on the Anakin figure from the Battle Packs?

That's what I was thinking too DP.  My posters at home, so I'll check it out when I get outta the office a little later.  Wouldn't be surprising though.  Stupid, yes.  But not surprising.
