Woah he does suck. I don't recall the sonic blasters shooting netting either. PooDoo.

Also, I saw a shot of the force flipping Anakin. it's somewhere on there, but I'm too ****ed off at the craptitude of these figures to go searching.

I've enjoyed the line thus far, but damned if I'm not horribly disappointed at TA Annie, Watto, and the two deluxes they showed.

Man, and the Deluxe C-3PO w/ Battle Droid and Deluxe Yoda w/ Super Battle Droid gave me such high hopes for the Deluxe line. I agree he sucks on toast. Oh well, it's another Geonosian for a different looking one for our armies. I would rather that they found a different way of putting the wing flapping action in. :(

They need to do ball joints like the Gasgano arm ball joints. That would allow for perfect wing articulation as long as they were made strong enough.

Oh dear. This Geonosian could have easily been a basic figure, even with his big pile of poo and his poo launcher.

Damn, them Geos play dirty.

Here's a picture of Deluxe Anakin. I got it before the Deluxe figure pics were taken from the SSG coverage.

Another Hasbro mistake, he's got his blue lightsaber instead of his green lightsaber.

They are still up, Sir Steve just reorganized them when he added more pictures. Just check the link on the front page. :)

It might get changed to green... I remember when we saw the SAGA Qui-Gon on one of those conventions and he had a blue lightsaber... So it could alsways change.....

Slight difference though, cause Qui-Gon's blade was removeable, but the Force Flipping figures' blades are molded to the hilt which is also molded to their hand. Though it might be the saber that Obi-Wan got, need a better view.

well the geonosian really does suck
the jumping Ani looks ok but it's the third one in a fighting pose, we could use a normal standing one now
noe where are the pics for the deluxe yoda and 3PO ?:(

edit: ok I just looked at the close-up picture of jumping Anakin and he sucks! man his face is horrible, he looks like some cartoon character, and a badly drawn-one

Here are some links to the images, and a little news from Rebelscum about the flying Geonosian:

Wizard World gets treated with the first showing of the new Anakin Skywalker with flipping action and the very cool Flying Geonosian Warrior with the much desired sonic blaster and what looks to be a Geonosian hive with suction cup (I guess hanging this on the wall with the Geonosian Warrior attached gives the effect of "flying"). Hasbro tells us that the sonic blaster was a later addition to the film, which is the reason it didn't come out until now. They actually began work on this figure with initial concept art rather than Lucasfilm archive reference photos. The sample shown is an early prototype. The production figure's sonic blast will have clear plastic. Anakin, who is the third "flipping" Deluxe figure in the Saga line comes with a packed in panel that interconnects with the other two.

The Geonosian doesn't look terrible. And the Anakin looks great! What's wrong with him having a blue lightsaber? What scene in the movie is he supposed to be from?

Yeah, right.....he doesn't even jump when fighting with duuku.........so he could be from another scene when he still got the blue...

If that little slit in Anakin's right wrist is what I think it is, then Anakin might have the saber attached to a detachable hand. There could be a second hand with a molded-in green lightsaber.


Guess we'll have to wait it out and see.

Geo is sweeet with Sonic blaster!
Anakin a bit of a disapointment. How many Anakins without a robe do we need???

:confused: You linked to the temporary location, it's basically a holding tank that Steve drops the images in, I go in and organize them afterwards and the URLs move to reflect this organization. I've adjusted your link in the opening post to reflect this new location, but since I didn't know which pic of the set you were linking to - since there are 5 of 'em - I linked to all 5.


BTW, I'm not 100% sure I'm supposed to mention this as info has been flying fast and furious all day, but the Deluxe Flying Geonosian goes INTO the pod.

I can't imagine Hasbro leaving that gearing open where little fingers could get pinched, so I'm betting this will look better as a finished product. I'll be buying one.

I'd buy a few just for the sonic blaster accessory. :) I'm not sure what the pod is supposed to be but it's weird and looks funky. The wings can't be like that for the final packaged version, for a start they're on the side of the body not the back. And that huge thing sticking out the back has to go surely? But the snic blaster sure is sweet. :) I guess the basket attachment will be clear lime green in the final version.
No I like this. I'll definately ad this to my geonosians hive.

Remember when the Geonosians came out of the walls? I think the pod is supposed to represent that.

Maybe the Anakin just has a crappy wrist joint and his hand pops out often. :p

Strictly an army building figure. I'll get some on clearance.
