I guess this might be a deluxe set, though I don't know for sure. He looks a bit odd with plastic sleeves and an otherwise cloth cloak, and what's that thing between his feet? The SBD is less than stellar but then again this is probably a deluxe set. Anyway it's nice to get a cloaked ROTS Obi-Wan so quickly.

I hate it when they go back to the old way of cutting the lower part of the tunic for the leg joints. Although I know that sometimes it makes it harder to bend the legs to a complete 90 degrees.

I think it looks ok. What the heck is that between his feet? Possibly some action feature?

Since he has a "squeeze" leg action feature, the natural position for the legs is apart. This base keeps his legs together.

The Super Battle Droid looks like the sculpt from the Yoda vs. Super Battle Droid set.

It's a deluxe figure thingy. just like a certin sidious figure. i wont be buying this whatever it does. The legs kinda ruined it for me.

Apparently this has a "Force Jump Attack." What that is exactly, I don't know.

JP, I don't think this is the SBD from the Yoda set. It looks to me that they're re-using that sculpt as the basic figure #4, though I could be wrong.

Man I hate these deluxe action crap sets. I mean a kid will play with it for about 2 minutes, notice it doesn't do what it says it should, tosses it and plays with his Power Rangers.:p

I dunno, my kid played with the Yoda/Battle Droid and 3po assembly line set for weeks until he lost the pieces and the dog got the rest.

OK that one is kind of cool. I even played with that one. I was really just talking about the flipping action sets. Those blew hard.

Yes they did, I refused to let him buy one of those. He wanted it, but I said hell no.

Now that you guys are talking about those I never ever saw them in stores and still don't have 'em. I can now add these to the small list of figures I need to buy. Thankfully they suck so I won't feel guilty about keeping them in the plastic coffin.

Don't waste your $. I mean even the most anal carded collector should not have them in their collection.

That's exactly the reason why I never bought the Cruise Missle Trooper. I still 'til this day don't own that EU abomination nor will I ever own that. Unless I see it for about 27 cents on Ebay.
