I also think the poncho and hood piece look good. Are they worth $10 extra? No way imo. And the screwed screwed up legs seal the deal. Somebody really needs to bring it to Hasbro’s attention. Or they could just STOP USING THE OLD CLONE MOLD!!!I actually think they done a fairly decent job with the soft goods poncho. Saw some other in hand pics on FB and it can be posed quite nicely with the figure. Cant believe they've messed the legs up again though
I dont have mine yet (been delayed to October apparently here in UK) but I've watched a couple reviews that mention the helmet is a slightly larger sculpt this time around so it fits better and doesn't scrape the face sculpt. 1 step forward 2 steps back though (no pun intended) given the leg errorCan't be that difficult, it's probably only going for $60 on ebay! lol
Something that kind of bugged me about Rex 59 after recently opening him due to now having shelf space for him, is that he's got a few bugs that bother me like very tight helmet and for some reason it mimics the old 3.75" Clones of 05-07 with chin showing underneath. You'd think they would have figured this out by now and gave him a slightly longer neck. Maybe they can't due to the pauldron, and lastly I had to slit his hand with a blade so he could hold his blaster. For some reason they only gave him one "shooter grip" hand as if the left were meant to hold a lightsaber. lol
Though since it's basically Cody as well as several other Clones it's the same hand used which allows for them hold hold the DC-15 with both hands. Makes sense, but not for Rex should have tooled a different hand or included swap outs like ML does.
Since this version is made from the same old Clone sculpt I'm glad I didn't need it, because it's definitely not worth $30 IMO If it we on the new body with a few more accessories, then I would have been swayed!
That all said, He does look great on he shelf next to Cody, TCW Anakin & Obi-Wan!
Still waiting for custom poncho so I can skip this lazy and impossibly to find release.
