Steve's going to have that press image up in a few minutes, but I just saw it, and it's such a weird figure, the upper body is kinda skinny, and the head has big lips and noodley hair and a really odd grimace, like he just let loose a Dark Side fart.

The good thing is that the saber is right on the money, and his belt has a true prequel-era disk holster instead of just a plug-in hole.

Wow, that's a real turd. I think the skinniness is an illusion since his upper body is just rotated strangely, but that head makes him look like Chunk from The Goonies made love to a Cabbage Patch Doll. Since other figures in this line have been seemingly altered from the promo images to the production pieces (at the very least, Maul's face looks better to me in person), I hope they get this one right.

Good Sith lord! Somehow, I recall 1980s-era Weird Al looking like that.

Your description is cruelly accurate.

I'd rather have a statuette of Chunk making love to a Cabbage Patch Doll. Is that wrong of me?
