Unleashed figures

Hardly figures, they're more like statues, and they are some of the best colletables I've ever gotten. I've taken it apon myself to get them all, and I'm pleased with everyone.

Anyone else buying these up?

Check out some of the upcoming figs:





I can hardly wait!

My only problem now is, I'm running out of room to display them all.


Sam: Aww... Its a cute hydrocephalic kitten.

Max: I'll call him Mittens, cause I think he'd make a fine pair of them.

I ve got Padme, Anakin and Vader... I brought Padme cos I heard a rumour a while back saying they were getting recalled due to her nipples being to apparant, so I snapped one up.

I like Luke and Sidious, they will be next on the list.

I heard that about Padme too. Dang shame that people are so uptight about things like that. Hard to believe the rumor though, considering the Leia figure that was just released.

I also don't get why they released 2 Vaders. One from the Cloud City pose where he's asking Luke to join him. And the other, in the same pose, but with a removable helmet and standing on his meditation chamber instead of the railing on Cloud City.

I think the Mace figure is probably the best of what's released so far.

Max: I'll call him Mittens, cause I think he'd make a fine pair of them.

Yeah I would have to agree with you about it not looking like Padme from the front but I think the profile is quite accurate when its compared with the Ep II teaser poster (just happens to be next me!). Plus her "bangers" are oversized compared to Natalie Portman... but whos complaining I still like the figure

Yah, the face on padme isn't quite right, but when you look at it you know exactly who it is. And it is a good figure overall. The Leia figure is better though, but seems to be a slightly smaller scale. Or is Carrie Fisher really that small?

Yeah fair dos, wasn`t saying Padme was one of the better ones just that the profile was accurate. Strange how the face can be accurate without looking more like her.

Personal fave is the Vader... although Im wantin Han the more I visit this thread

Yah, i just got that Insider and the Boba Fett is a must get for any collector. Its got him trying to blast out of the Sarlacc pit with a few tenticles holding his legs and a large fire effect from his jetpack.

I'll be watching the preorder section on KEBco so I can be first on the list of orders.

Thought you guys might want to know, the Han, Yoda, and Fett figures are now avalable to preorder from KEBco.com. I ordered mine a few minutes ago.

There are a few other new 3.75" figures avalable too. Mostly classic characters there.

I'd sugest that you DO preorder them now if you're interested. When you predorder, your order is put in a waiting list. First to order first to recieve. So the sooner you order the better. I'm still waiting for my Aayla and Bariss figures cause I waited so long.

Should I get the Unleashed figures or spend the extra and get the Kotobukiya figures? Does anyone know anything about the Kotobukiya figures, their quality, value for money etc? I only know about them because I saw them while browsing Popcorn.co.uk. Here's a link...

I might be interested in the Clone Trooper figure. I personally like the Unleashed figures better. The action-poses are more 'actiony'. The pictures are kinda low rez so its hard to tell, but those statues don't seem to have as much detail as the Unleashed ones. All that considered and that the Unleashed figures are about 6X cheeper, I wouldn't feel bad missing out on the Kotobukiya figs.

The other thing is that the older Unleashed figs are pretty much only avalable from ebay or a rare website, it'll take some more legwork to get them. I watched the auctions each day and waited for a Buy It Now to appear at the price I was willing to pay.

Thanks. I'll go for the unleashed ones then.

I wasn't really into poseable action figures until I bought the Tod McFarlane Matrix Series 1 figures. They just look so awesome that I have to buy more. I'm currently trying to find a Moloko Kusanagi figure from Ghost in the Shell.

I've ordered Anakin Unleashed and Darth Vader (removable helmet) Unleashed. I'll keep an eye on ebay for the rest.

Well, Lexx, The unleashed figs arn't really very poseable. They're more like statues than they are figures. On Mace you can turn his wrist to angle his saber, but that's it. With Anakin you can change out one of his hands to have either 1 or 2 sabers, and the arm on the droid he's killed moves. And Dooku's arm moves up and down, and you can switch out his hand with either his saber or a big wave of Force lightning. But dang they look great.

But really, when were SW figures ever poseable? The new 3.75" figures are pretty stattic. You can move their arms and hands around, but if you want them to stand up their feet have to be in the same place.

If you want high articulated figures, Todd Toys are probably the way to go. That or the new GIJoe figs, but I don't like those as much as the classic ones.

I guess poseable was the wrong word to use, I know they are static.

Yes, as I said in my previous post, I know they are not poseable. I was trying to say 'in a pose' but I used the wrong word.

I got the Anakin and Vader Unleashed figures today. I'm very happy with them. I have Mace on the way and I'm keeping an eye on ebay for some others. I'm only getting characters I like though. My display cabinet is looking goooooood.

I really want that Luke one in Random's original post. Any idea when it is due out?
