A bunch of us noticed, when pictures first surfaced that the cloak was the wrong color. Then we saw it again, and it was the correct choclate brown. And then on the back of the Padme: Droid Factory figure it was the tan color again. GalacticHunter got some info out of Hasbro on the new figure, over the concerns of some of their forumites that the cloak would be the wrong color.
'03 Mace Windu Cloak Update
12/17/2002 2:36:07 PM | Reported by Mike
A few astute readers chimed in about the wrong color of the upcoming Mace Windu's (Arena Confrontation) cloak in this photo posted by Hasbro Star Wars recently. According to Hasbro, the photo was of an early prototype. "In production, Mace's robe will be a darker brown. More chocolate than tan," says Hasbro's Paula Sacchi, " Also, the sculpted plastic cloak has been changed to a dark soft goods cloak." Look for the new Collection 1 Mace Windu to start hitting store pegs in January!
So cool, the cloak will be the right "choclate brown" color. And the rubber/bendy arms that are controlled by the knob on the back will be hopefully be hidden by the soft goods cloak sleeves. Now all the have to do, is tell us the knob is removable and this will be a very good Mace Windu figure. Bring it on, Hasbro!
MTFBWY and HH!!
