The new Nikto pics (front page) appear to show that this figure also has the saber attached to the figure's hand. It atleast appears that way as the figure is packaged with a hilt in his hands and the blade separated...like the hilt is immovable. Am I seeing straight?

I can't see them doing something THAT bone-headed. I'm pretty sure they just have him in the package holding it. (I hope)

Well, I could see them having him hold the hilt because his arms can't be set any other way in the package it seems. Either way though, because of the pose, I couldn't see having him without him holding his lightsaber.

Exactly. The saber hilt isn't molded to his hands, it's just that his arms are molded to hold it with both hands. So if they packaged the lightsaber in a seperate bubble like Yoda or Shaak Ti, he would look very strange in the package, because his arms would just be sitting out in front.

I'm a little disappointed that he doesn't seem to have any other joints besides the standard ones, so his arms look like they can only move up and down.

But he's STILL the figure I'm most looking forward to! I love the way he looks :)

I was thinking the same thing. It sucks that will will always have to be in that same position.
