After some of my recent posts, I'm sure I must fall into the "do-gooder" category. And trust me, I'm no blind follower of Hasbro. It's just there does seem to be an excessive amount of negativity on these boards as of late.
Now that we've seen the first two waves, let me say I'm only impressed with, meaning I'll only buy the following . . . But then, I'm not a completist by any means.
R2D2 -- a retread of PFX R2 but I liked that figure and welcome a "clean sculpt."
C3P0 -- I think he'll turn out better than most expect. The original photo was horribly blurred but for a while there was an amazing front and back photo of this and all the first eight figs -- sadly it's gone. But I thought it looked pretty dang sweet.
JANGO FETT -- Not the preview. The second release is the way to go. Actually, I agree with many that doing two of this guy is pretty scammy. Everybody who gets the preview will then WANT the removable helmet resculpt.
AKAKIN -- The retro light saber seals my fate to buy this figure. A novelty to be sure. But I love nostolgia.
R3 DROID -- Okay, I'm blanking on this guys name, but he's a sweet fig!
Closing Note -- Many of the other figs are either wildly posed. Bad Hasbro Bad. Or just dumb looking in overall design. Bad Lucasfilm Bad.
The packaging is cool IMOP. I like the fact that there's a large photo of the actual fig on the back. It's new and something different.
How about you guys? Which will find homes in your collection?
