Are you suggesting they rerelease the figures you linked to, but with cloth cloaks? The AOTC Anakin and Obi-Wan there already have soft goods incorporated into their "skirts."

I'm all for soft goods, when they allow action figures to sit and when they don't look too poofy.

I'm on the fence with the whole soft goods vs molded plastic goods. the problems with both is that soft goods the hood never looks right and is sorta bulky and the molded prevents the figure from sitting. i think hasbro needs to invent a new type of molded soft goods that can clean up both problems for the future releases.

I like the material used for the apron on the new Ugnaught. It's very flexible and almost has a cloth-like quality to it, while still holding very sharp sculpting details.

If Hasbro could perfect that material, then it might be a decent alternative to soft goods in many, but not all, cases. I think stuff like Jedi robes will always need to be soft-goods.

Best soft goods in recent memory:

Tsui Choi
Hermi Odle
Yoda
Worst:

Owen Lars (good texture and look, but far too bulky)
There are others that make great examples, but I don't have them handy. Hasbro is doing an overall spectacular job with most of them, but when they fail it's an epic fail.

Totally disagree, I think his softgoods are an epic fail. Multiple washes, still can't quite get it to sit properly. The 2 part aspect is really my problem with them.

They should've gone after the example of the neo-Vintage Tusken, and used thinner material.
