    Got My Nexu and Deluxe Anakin Today...

    As stated, I got my Nexu and Ani today. I've posted about the Nexu, which I've opened (it's sweet, awesome, cool, great - whichever one you want to describe, it ). So, if you want to read my posts about it, go to the Reviews section or the "Got My Nexu Today" Thread under this section (I think it's called: Got My Nexu Today").
    But the Ani, I haven't opened. I wanted to get the forumites' opinions first, for those who have this one. He looks okay, except for some massive eye brows and the loose soft goods. But how is this one out of the package?
    Also, I thought the Geonosian pack-in was supposed to have magnets? Mine has little pegs, which I think is better, but I'm wondering if all are like this, or if this is a later change.

    Thanks for anyone who can offer his or her opinion.

    End .

    Edit in: I just noticed something on the back of the Deluxe Anakin.

    The text reads: Battling for their lives in the arena, Anakin and Obi-Wan Kenobi clash against thousands of Geonosian Warriors in a grueling confrontation. As Geonosians attack, Anakin uses the Force to retrieve a second lightsaber and prepares to defend himself at all costs...

    I guess a lot of these figures really are made before production. Because, as we know, Anakin doesn't get his second lightsaber until he's in the hangar.
    And this would also explain why the Unleashed Anakin has two lightsabers while he's fighting a Battle Droid...

    which may also be the reason that anakin hd has his own lightsaber as opposed to the generic blue one obi-wan gave him in the movie.

    That's a good point. I never really noticed that before you mentioned it.

    i was wondering why it came with 2 sabers.
    Duct Tape...the Force it is like. Both a light side and a dark side it has. Binds the universe together it does!

    The blue saber that comes with Anakin HD is the same as Luke's from ANH.

    the whole droid factory thing is actually a bit of an afterthought, as evidenced by the soundtrack having it as a bonus track, anakin still having his original saber with the figures, and from the mouth of george lucas. So this would mean he never lost his original saber.
    It's good that he lost it, though, so now he can have the Graflex (AKA luke's original saber) in episode III

    Well...I'd leave the Anakin on the card, but that's because I've seen it and I think it's got a terrible facial expression. Sorta like Geonosian Rescue Mace except with his eyes open. Looks like "Going Psycho" Anakin to me.

    My Geo has pegs too, not sure if they all do but mine does.

    I wish they would have given Ani a soft goods robe in this set, considering he's wearing it on screen everytime he kills a Geo!

    I saw the Nexu and Anikan at both Walmarts I went to today, but did not get either of them since I don't like the deluxe figures. I did like the Nexu though, he was nicely done.

    Worst...Figure...Ever!

    OMG, I just picked up Deluxe Ani today, and I have to say that he has taken out GR Mace as the Worst Saga Figure thus far! He just looks horrendous! Horrendous!! Aaaarrrgh! I can't believe I own this crud!

    Ahem...Well, besides his psycho-wide-eyed-screaming face, his right arm looks totally broken--it's really strangly posed. It would have been nice if he had some bicep-cuts, but of course, he doesn't being the crap that he is. His belt is also extremely ugly and is very oversized and bulky. The soft-goods vest can be tightened (as it comes very loose fitting in the package), but in the end it still looks too big.

    His action feature is equally craptacular as Anakin will do his best impression of being a pair of scissors. And even though the geonosian warrior falls apart easily, I can't get Anakin to chop him up proper.

    Of interest is Anakin's lightsabers which do not have removable blades, so if you don't like the removable blades of other sabers, then this figure is for you.

    Anyhoo, please don't buy this figure, and if you do, don't open it. That's my advise.
