Commentary: After a round of repaints, Hasbro decided that the second batch of "Order 66" sets would include newly molded parts. Master Sev is, in fact a previously released Kit Fisto with a new head and a new robe. So rather than sell you another Jedi you've bought twice, Hasbro was kind enough to take a cue from the Clone Wars Adventures comic books and give you this new figure. He's basically super articulated, but it's a little weird. His arms are what you might expect, but his legs, not so much. I'd go into detail, but basically, he'll do what he should-- just oddly. Since he's modeled after a stylized comic book character, Hasbro had a low bar for excellence here, and thankfully the figure turned out well. All they really had to do was crank out a Jedi with a Weequay head, and well, that's what we got here. It's a new character, which makes it a solid "buy."
Collector's Notes: This one sold well. It's notable in that the package illustration sucks. I'm not saying this to be mean, it really, truly blows. Hasbro did a bad photoshop job on a publicity shot of Samuel L. Jackson as Mace Windu, and the end result seems to be closer to a Jem'Hadar than a Weequay. His clone companion was rereleased as a non-exclusive in Saga Legends, so if you just want that, you can skip this one. I don't think you'll want to skip it, though.
