Frozen in battle stance...
I know that we are really gonna be split on this, but I thought I'd open up the proverbial can of worms.
While I think the new Eeth Koth is great looking, so don't get me wrong there... however- I only have one gripe. We have all been complaining about the lack of articulation in the figures which doesn't allow us put the figures in "action poses". I can't even begin to tell you how equally annoyed I am when a figure is locked into "action position". There were the gripes about "one pose Jar-Jar" and it's true. What a total waste. I would love to have a true action figure that can be placed in active and passive stances.
I just can't see having this Eeth Koth figure as part of a Jedi Council diorama or sitting in a starship. This limits playability as well as the "stiff as boards" poses.
I'll LOVE seeing where this Thread goes... that is if anyone finds it interesting enough to comment on.
Some people might consider the following a spoiler.....
I'm thinking that since the Jedi Council is supposed to see some action in Ep. II, that this figure is a preview of things to come. I think I heard that a new Plo Koon is rumored for next year, so maybe we'll have a series of butt-kicking Jedi Masters (and one Jedi Knight in Ki-Adi-Mundi).
