The Clone Trooper looks very nice, too bad about the quick-draw though.

Always nice to get more Battle Droids. This is likely a Collection 2 figure (note how there's no action feature but rather a descriptive name), and I like it. The base is sweet. Now we know that the Battle Droids will be cream colored again.

Sweet figure, but the action feature sucks! Do you hear me Hasbro!!! Action features suck!!!! They will not convince a new generation of consumer to buy your swag!!!! Just stick to pleasing the people who keep buying your crap year after year!!!
And by the way, why does the Vader have such an articulation deficit compared to all the other figures?!!!! The others look great, I just wish Mace, Obi-Wan, and Anakin had articulated knee joints.

The clone has no waist articulation and the BD seems to be a repaint of the Saga BD which itself was a slight remold of the POTJ Security BD.

I still don't know about the packaging but I'm still back and forth on it. It looks good with these figures but others don't look well.

I was hoping for the SA Clone Trooper body with a new head....so far, no ROTS fig has blown me away.....after VOTC, it all looks kinda crappy.

I'm still waiting for a decent (read: no action feature) Zam...

I sure hope this BD is in fact a new mold. Its hard to tell from the pictures but re-packing the old figure into this new style packaging isn't going to fly with me. We need a BD made of sturdier plastic, one that can actually stay standing up straight in warmer temperatures. I'll be passing on any EP III figure that isn't a new sculpt, especially at this new price point.

Even if it's the old mold, it *could* be made of stronger stuff. I'm fairly sure it's the same mold though, the neck is the same design as the ones I mentioned before (which means it cannot transform and has a poor range of motion).

Looks like it MAY have knee articulation, but I don't know. Hopefully shoulder articulation at least...and sturdier plastic. The sculpt is perfect really, just needs plastic as sturdy as the first Battle Droid figures or even the Security Droid. Not the gummy droid stuff they used during Saga...

I like the figures. They look pretty sweet. Clones looking real good. Battle droid is same old same old to me.
