Ya this is a really cheap move on their part. If it's a straight repack, with the fan-mod mask from KOTOR that the original has, then its borderline shameful.Very disappointing that they couldn’t scale down the 6” release. Oh well, will still probably get it for the sake of having a 3.75” Revan (even if it’s a crappy one).
Looking forward to getting this one! I’m glad Disney is going to keep making “Legends” figures.
Had this guy on my amazon list for a minute and this repack would be cheaper, but man you guys make this figure sound like garbage. I may have to pass on this one.
Sugar coat it all you want - the figure is garbage. It checks off every box that collectors tend to agree with as being negative in a figure.Its far from garbage, some collectors just complain about everything. Browse the photo archive and decide for yourself whether you like it. I bought the original and think its well done, but for TVC I do think it should have been retooled. A new helmet, knee articulation, and a softgoods skirt would have gone a long way - plus we need to remember the MSRP nearly doubled since the original release, so Hasbro should put more effort into the figure.

Yes, collectors complain. But this figure sucks and what makes it worse is that it's a highly requested character that they just whiffed on.
The most iconic part of this characters design is the mask. They used a mask design that was fan made for a KOTKR mod.
Makes me think they should have just went with a 2-pk Exclusive, if it meant getting new sculpts for them!Yeah, the Malak figure was an awful figure too, but at least it had knee articulation,lol. It would've been cool if they offered two new sculpts together of those respective characters.
Lol - sugar coated was the wrong words. Apologies.Lol - whats being sugar coated? I said I like the figure, and he should decide on his own whether he likes it - not be swayed by other collectors ranting about it. If someone likes a figure, that should be their only factor in deciding whether to purchase it. As for TVC, did you not read that I said it SHOULD have a new helmet, etc? For $13+ they should put more effort into the figure, rather than an old repack.
This was bad figure when it was first released and worse now when amongst modern releases.
I have one still I had two and recently sold one on eBay anticipating a VC Revan release and was hoping to beat the dropping market. I would have definitely preferred a new figure but I'll get this one to keep MOC. Revan was one of the few EU characters I enjoyed (at least until the SWTOR MMO story destroyed everything that was ever good about the character).
