    Saw it earlier, and it looks great :D

    However, lookig at his waist/leg areas, it looks like it may be difficult to get him in his starfighter.

    Looks like he's got a damn action feature though :(

    Those look sweet! The details are awesome, from the scar on his face to the hole in his belt where he can hook his lightsaber.

    The likeness is good, not much articulation, and yeah... action feature from the looks of it. [face_plain]

    Good to know that the SA Clone Trooper is being repacked.

    Yeah I would imagine they will, k3po! :)

    How can ya'll tell it has this "action feature"? And if collectors don't like these action features, why do you think they still make them?

    Well, the joint they used for Anakin's left elbow looks to be the same they've used on past figures that come with things like "lightsaber slashing action!" or "lightsaber throwing action!" The elbow joint is made to be loose so the arm swings freely when the button is pressed on the back. As far as I've read, collectors are pretty divided on the action figures, though I think more dislike than like them. However, Hasbro said we'd be getting two collections of ROTS figs, the first with action features, and the second focusing more on the sculpt and articulation, so I'm confident that we'll get a great looking Anakin with super articulation and no action features eventually. :)

    Yeah, even if it takes a whole year, like the Secret Ceremony Anakin did when it came out in early '03, for those of us who were lucky enough to find figures in the first half of the year. :p

    If you ask me, we still have yet to recieve a definitive AotC Anakin figure... and the same is true for many other prequel figures.

    From all of the Ep III figure prototypes and mock
    up's that I've seen, I think it's safe to say
    that Hasbro is intent on improving the face sculpts
    in the ROTS line.

    Anakin's face here is pretty dead on. I also like the
    detail in his outfit. I assume that there will be
    many Anakin figures. A Star pilot, a S/A psycho
    version for the duel. A crispy version. An extra
    crispy version with two side items and a drink.
    The works!

    If they do re-release the S/A CT, (And I hope they
    do!), I hope he's the basis for ALL the CT's. He
    sets the standard, as troopers go.

    It's a little hard for me to see why the SA Clone is being re-released if the Clones all sport a new look in RotS. However, I'm all for the re-release since I never found one to begin with.

    yeah, i'm still confused about what the clone troopers will look like in ROTS. will they be like last time or new or both? anyway, it's good to see the SA clone again, but i hope it's not packed in with the darth vader case. i just bought the OTC one and i have the vintage one. i really don't want another.
