yes, but which one? Tatooine, Padawan, Pilot?

'78 Updated the thread title with Padawan, so there it is. Another main character with a much needed update!

Have to wait to see the figure, but right now not interested.

Finally! And this goes to show that Hasbro tries to throw us off to keep surprises since they said Anakin wasn't really a good choice last year. I would think a Tatooine Anakine is in the plans for the disnant (or not-too-distant) future at some point, too.

Glad it's padawan Anakin, he really needed to be redone.
Looking forward to this one

With the last slide of the show, Hasbro said join us in New York for how they plan to celebrate the 3D release of Episode I - I think there's more coming - and it's in that main line that I believe we'll see the Tatooine Anakin.

There are several notable gaps in their coverage - Jar Jar being chief amongst the gaps.

So there almost has to be more.

Not an exciting figure per say but a needed redo for sure.

Re: Anakin Skywalker - Episode I - VC**

really more interested in the basic Anakin look which represented the majority of the movie, but like said above Im sure that one will come too. They both needed upgrades.

He comes with a training lightsaber, remote droid, and youngling helmet. This makes him more awesome.

Re: Anakin Skywalker - Episode I - VC**

Releasing the Padawan version first is kinda surprising. Don't know if I need an update. The Ep 1 version still holds up extremely well as far as sculpt and paint deco goes.

Agreed. Off-screen accessories also do nothing for me.

I think this version looks really good. Definitely going to go into my evolution of Anakin display. The extras are nice but I will probably use them for something else. He can keep the lightsaber though...

I try to forget that Darth Vader was an annoying kid I wanted to punch in the mouth. Pass.

Definitely a needed update, and I'm glad they went with this version as opposed to the Tatooine version.

A needed update. I will get one for sure.

Really? If that is the case I am guessing you have passed on a large portion of the line...

You hope you're aware of what franchise you're supporting here.

Re: Anakin Skywalker - Episode I - VC**

This figure was not on my radar but I like it and will pick it up. I hope they also get a new Tatooine Anakin out as part of the 2012 line...

Re: Anakin Skywalker - Episode I - VC**

Cool figure to release, and one that I'll likely pick up.

By the way, I really should know this, but did Anakin have a braid in this scene, because I'm not seeing one on the figure.

I'm pretty sure he did.

Eh. It may not be unprecedented to release a figure for a character who had little screen time, but given the need for an improved version of Anakin as he appeared through 99% of the movie, this is a frustrating version to do.

Not a baffling version, though. The sculpt could be mostly reused parts (though I'd have to see it in person to tell), and could be cheaper to do than a peasant version.

sigh.

Re: Anakin Skywalker - Episode I - VC**

to be perfectly honest, i could completely do without this figure. i might pick one up just for the heck of it but if they never made it i would not be upset.

Plus the whole franchise is built around Anakin to boot, interesting choice to release as I'd rather have seen a new tatooine version but this will do for now.

Re: Anakin Skywalker - Episode I - VC**

That was funny, we have figures of characters that were on screen for 1-2 seconds as well...thats nothing new, its what keeps the line going. I like this new figure, its a great update - they'll have to make an equally good Tatooine version now that they opened this can of worms.

Obviously you haven't seen Any Star Wars movies if you think the character was only shown for 15 seconds. Not sure if you know this or not but I will let you in on a little secret. This character was in all six movies

The outfit though doesn't have much screen time, but it's the beginning of his journey as a Jedi so it's pretty key to the scheme of things as well.

There is a good close-up at Galactichunters and I have to admit the he looks good, even if he resembles a young Hayden.

Re: Anakin Skywalker - Episode I - VC**

Is it just me or does it look like they added a little bit of Hayden into the face sculpt?

Nice figure choice, just not crazy about the facial sculpt.

Re: Anakin Skywalker - Episode I - VC**

That is an excellent sculpt, even better than I thought it would be. I really do hope they use the body to do other padawan/younglings. Just change the head and maybe hands depending on the species... I really like this sculpt and hope they use it to put out others. Can't wait to get this one...

Hey cool, he comes with a deuling remote and the youngling training helmet seen in AOTC! I didn't expect that. Fantastic looking piece this figure is, I too can see a bit of Hayden in his face and that works nicely.
