Hasbro has updated today with several boxed images front and back, please check them out here.SheroBakai said:So they replaced Durge with Greivous....Cuz we need another one...But does anyone know if Anakin and Obi Wan are SA??? It looks like they are but in another pic...It looks like Obi has an action featureI hope not...But Im just curious...And hopefully the "stormtrooper" armor looks better than the firts promo pics we saw...
If I were you, I'd try to find the original preview Grevious - the plastic used to create the one in this set is VERY soft and flimsy.Seraphim said:I will be getting the pack for the Asajj and the Grievous (I missed out on the Preview Grievous).

(Yoda with Holo Yoda)
All the rest of the pics I took were even worse so that's all at the moment. Onto the details...
General Grievous is exactly the same as the Sneak Preview version. No big deal, it's a great figure and you can never have too much Grievous.
Yoda is a repack of the Saga 'Yoda & Chian' basic figure. Five toes included.
Asajj Ventress looks a lot more like the cartoon version than the basic Clone Wars figure did. She's got ball jointed shoulders and neck, swivel waist and slit-cut elbows. It's hard to move her legs through her skirt but she stands with no trouble. And her lightsabers still connect!
Anakin Skywalker is a bit of a letdown. The likeness is off and he was pretty difficult to stand. He's got ball-jointed shoulders, neck and left elbow, swivel waist and right robotic arm, ball jointed knees and articulated left hip. I know this because I tried to move his right leg and it snapped off. WARNING: his right leg does NOT move, other than when squeezed for the lame action feature. Don't make my mistake and snap the piece of turd off!!
Obi-Wan with the Clone (sorry.... 'Stormtrooper') armor is a lot better than I thought. He's got the same immovable action featured-right leg (I'd learned my lesson from Anakin), swivel waist, articulated left leg and knee, ball jointed neck and shoulders, and slit-cut elbows. The armor when on looks a bit different than it did on the cartoon but it doesn't look overly bulky or stupid like I thought it would. Overall, he's probably my favorite of the new figures.
The set's good for what it's worth. If you didn't watch or enjoy the Clone Wars cartoon series then it's not recommended but if you want decent representations of major characters from it, it's a good buy.

CHEWIE said:Excellent review. Sorry about your Anakin. That really sucks. I hope you can fix it.
LegendKiller said:I got it in the UK (Forbidden Planet) so I don't think it's widely available just yet. I just thought I'd post this for everyone who was looking to buy it at some point.
Arrghh stupid Anakin. I'm gonna try and glue his leg back on or something... makes me hate action features that much more, lol.
DanakTe said:That's a pretty keen set... especially the armored Obi. Sucks about your Anakin. I'll second your vote on action features. Just gimmie some SA figs and I'll be happy.
The figures in the link are all normal sized figures!lafos said:http://www.starwars.com/collecting/news/hasbro/news20050622.html
Does anyone know, if these 5 figures, where the same size as the regular ROTS waves ?
Or are these figures different ?
Man-oh-man, but that Anakin figure looks like it's ready to join the cast of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert! The Asajj figure is pretty cool looking, though. Considering the craptacular quality associated with the ROTS Deluxe line, though, I'm not holding out much hope for this set. Based on the review posted above, the flismy, soft plastic will make attempts at even posing these things -- let alone having children actually play with them -- nearly impossible!QbinB said:I was excited about this set, but after seeing the pics, not so excited anymore. I think Anakin looks like a girl.
