Well, just got this figure in the mail today and he is absolutely incredible! Probably the coolest Star Wars action figure I have had the pleasure to own!
The first thing that struck me about him was his size on the card, that bubble is huge and I forsee many cards getting bent out of shape just by the sheer weight of the figure inside as they hang on the pegs. Bad for MOC collectors, but something I could care less about.
His sculpting is just awesome. Definitely a new high point for the Star Wars line. For those of you who also collect the McFarlane line of toys, well this figure blows them away. He is completely accurate to the ROTJ puppet, except for some rearranging of his cloak to allow for arm articulation, but that is no biggie at all.
9-points of articulation: head, shoulders, wrists, legs, jaw and tail. Excellent for a figure that would have had a max of four if made in the vintage line.
The only minor area of disappointment is the fact that Hasbro seems to have forgotten how to make action figures that can stand unassisted. For a figure the size of Ephant Mon, the thought of him not being able to stand on his own seems silly. But unfortunately he can't, he topples over because the back of his cloak is sculpted lower than his feet. However, this is easily remedied with an action stand or by putting his cane in his left hand for support. All in all, not really a big deal.
So, overall, I give this figure a very enthusiastic 10++++ out of 10. Definitely one of the coolest figures in the entire history of Star Wars collecting. And to think he was almost a Twi'lek Massuese.
