Darth_Anton said:Can someone who's opened one already tell us whether or not the cape has been fixed to drape over the body better than the ROTS Guards?

M_Kunst said:After seeing the pic on the back, I may get a couple of the upcoming Shadow Stormies and do some parts swapping. Also, going by that pic, do they infrequently wear their robes or maybe not wear them at all? I may just use them without the robes if that's the case since they look horrible.

If I may suggest, I put a ROTS Royal Guard helmet (which I belive is from the same mold as the Shadow Guard) on a TAC stormie just to see if the would fit and the helmet looks really big and awkward. If possible I would try using either a vintage or POTF2 Royal Guard helmet. They seem to be smaller and would probably look better and more proportionate but then again I'm not much of a customizer so what do I know?
Well, I liked the Royal Guard figures so I guessed that oenof those painted black and red plus a huge lightsaber would be a bit cool.Blight said:This figure is totally boring. I found several of them and I regret buying one. It seriously is not an interesting figure in any way. Save your money.
RogueStar said:Something to take note of. The Shadow Guard's robe is on backwards and inside-out. You can see it in Dan's photo above, and compare to mine below. It's easy enough to fix...
• pop the head off and pull the robe off
• pull the wide cape-y part of the robe through the loop of the narrower, roundish bit of the robe
• put the robe back on the figure, feet first through the loop and finally pull the shoulder bits into place
• pop the head back on
Of course the robe itself would be better if it wasn't made from that dyed cheesecloth crap Hasbro likes to use. But after fixing it, it's not too bad. It "hangs" much better.
