Forgot to put this out last night... Busy.
Taking a look here at Mace Windu (Lightsaber Attack)
in all his glory. For those of you looking to find that definitive Mace Windu, well keep looking further because this isn't it.
I had to tweak my point of view a bit really to review this figure because had this been released in the 2002 Attack of the Clones figure launch, I honestly would've probably given it some praise for effort.
But comparing Mace to other ROTS figures he's a letdown really. He's missing the articulation and aesthetics of collection 2 figures, and I think that while he's been a popular sell-through at retail that he's a letdown overall and I long for a truly super articulated Mace with a great likeness and softgoods robes.
The figure's a sign of Hasbro's effort to make Collection 1 BETTER though, and you have to give them some praise for that, but the figure is off the mark of quality as a LOT of the Collection 1 figures in ROTS's line were.
That's not to say the #6 Clone was a bad figure though,f or instance, but figures like the kicking Obi-Wan, Yoda, or Anakin were all missing something (or many things) and so is this Mace.
The line's done well, I wholely believe that can be attributed to kids this time around whereas the last 2 films weren't that great to the public and subsequently the toy lines failed too. ROTS had a lot more kid interest, Collection 1 moved then, but the kiddies will be leaving as they always do so hopefully that Mace we all want (you know you do) is on its way the way we want it.
Read the full review though, check back here if you'd like, and enjoy! Thanks for the readership too, I wanted to take a moment to thank you guys that have chimed in and shared your thoughts and comments about the job I'm doing. I appreciate that and you, as do all the Jedi Defender staffers. Thanks!
