They tampoed the wrong logo on his shoulder??? LAME! C'mon, even if Hasbro is doing bad right now, shouldn't Chris or someone else at Lucas Licensing have caught that? They don't even look that similar.

I like Luke better than you do, JT, but I feel your pain on the scarf issue. They could easily have put a hole in his head and added a separate scarf, like they did in the late 2003 version. As it is, he does look really good riding the Tauntaun, so that's how I'll display him. I'd like Hasbro to re-release the Tauntaun-riding Luke and Han figures with alternate heads - Luke with the scarf down, and Han with his hood up, since the current ones are only good for very short moments in the film. I appreciate the accuracy, but I would also appreciate flexibility here.
I've passed up that figure thus far due to the face, in pictures it doesn't look so good, kinda... I dunno, "blorpy". Any better in person?
The Clone Wars Anakin is really good - it's odd that they're only now starting in this direction, after four years of animated-style figures. But it does open new display options, so that's cool. I really like his wrists; they're ball-jointed but not bulky. I'd like to see more figures, especially Jedi, with this range of motion.
I'm still waiting to see in person, it looks interesting but also not quite the home run I was hoping for - the helmet isn't from ANH at all, and the cape's peg-head attachment kills any chance of me buying this Vader above minimum retail. And that's disappointing to hear about the belt not having a way to hold the saber.
All that aside, this wave's Darth Vader is a stunning figure. From the amazing, from-the-ground-up sculpting to the exceptional articulation, this is my favorite Vader they've ever done. The poseability and look of this one is just fantastic. The only thing missing is the ability to hang a lightsaber from his belt. I really want them to do a similar Vader for the other movies; we'll see how the Emperor's Wrath version is. If anyone is on the fence on this one - or, hell, even decided against getting this one - you need to reconsider. "Badass" is probably the word that best describes this one.
