Wave 5 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ My 2 Republic Credits....
CW Anakin Skywalker w/Tattoos
A decent figure for the most part, he got the right articulation, though no swivel wrist in the "good arm". The pant aren't the right color, shouldn't he have more of a mullet style hair cut here? And he appears to include the wrong hilt lightsaber! ARGH!!!
Yoda with Kybuck
As a huge Yoda fan I love this figure. Great sculpt and the expression is really emotive, I like it alot. As for the Kybuck, I think is was interpreted very well for the most part (aside from the missing blinders/glasses) what I am worried about though is its ability to stand unassisted. If you look at the photo (especially the one from JediInsider
), you can see that it has been hot glued down to the base its on. So, I guess we'll have to wait and see on that one.
Roron Corobb (Ithorian Jedi)
A great figure all around even with those swivel elbows. I'd totally poo-poo this figure if he had swivel shoulders as well. The ball-joint shoulders and swivel wrists should allow him to hold his saber with both hands. (A must for any Jedi obviously). Although I'm not thrilled with that gap between the swivel joint on his left arm, hopefully the tolerances will be tightened up during production.
Darth Malak (KOTOR)
Admittedly I know absolutely nothing about this figure; his origins, shoe size, favorite color, turn-ons and offs and I couldn't care less. He sure does look surprised. And that plastic cape is horseshit. Sith Fire better start making mold of his stuff, cuz I'd gladly by 50 of his version versus this abortion.
Darth Revan (Fan's Choice)
I sure didn't choose him. Looks cool though if your into EU, I'm not see above.
Qymaen Jai Sheelal (pre-Grievous form)
Great sculpt, I couldn't care less about what happened before Grievous was Grievous-ified though he'll make an excellent Cantina patron for me.
Concept Starkiller Hero "Leia"
I love it. But as you can tell. I'm an OT purist and it doesn't get much purer than pre-viz OT McQuarrie. Great sculpt, excellent female proportions (for my tastes) and she brandishes a lazersword. Hubba Hubba!
Another work of art! The best figure of the wave and Ephont Mon has a new brother. Great use of soft goods and well articulated to boot.
C-3PO w/Salacious Crumb
Obviously Salacious is the star here and a welcome update to the version that was included with the deluxe Amanaman. The C-3PO is your basic reissue with green booger/Jello/Crumb spuz deco. Nice to finally have but why not reuse the pegwarmer Endor version?
