Commentary: Another spectacular value. Kabe was originally an Internet exclusive in 1998, and eventually was repainted a little bit and released as a Wal-Mart exclusive in 2007. The two figures are very similar, but the fur on their heads are painted differently. The 1998 release has more of a wipe on it, and it looks somewhat muddy. The new one is much cleaner, but according to some fans, still isn't quite good. Well, I'm fine with it-- it's better than what we had, and it comes with the super-cool silver suited Nabrun Leids. The figure is jointed at her neck, arms, and waist, and that's about it. It's nothing to stunning in 2007, but it's a nice addition to any Cantina set-up.

Collector's Notes: Of the two releases, this is the better Kabe. So if you don't have one, get this one.
