Anakin Skywalker (Outland Peasant Disguise)

Hmm, the Anakin Skywalker figure in his Peasant Disguise from AOTC has joined ranks among Sculpted figures. Unlike all the other Anakin Skywalker figures from AOTC, this Anakin has a pretty emotionless face sculpt. This is either good or bad depending on your own opinion.
Anakin Skywalker has 6 basic articulation points at the neck, shoulders, waist, and hips. It would have been a little nicer, had he had bicep-cut articulation in his arm. 
This is where one of the good parts about this figure comes in. Anakin's paint applications are beautiful on this figure. Hasbro did a very nice job detailing Anakin's Peasant Disguise with paint.
Anakin Skywalker comes with 3 accessories. He comes with a blaster pistol, a removable beige-white poncho, and some weird box-type thingy. It would have been nice to have a lightsaber as an accessory, but worry not, as his hand IS a lightsaber, whether you like it or not.
Anakin comes with 2 Action Features. The first is the usual 2002 Force Attraction action. He has a magnet in his left hand, while there is a magnet in the weird box thingy and a magnet in the blaster pistol. You are supposed to open the box up by using the Force on it and the blaster pistol is Force Attracted to Anakin's hand. The second Action Feature is a use of an old Vintage-styled Action Figure feature. Anakin's lightsaber is built into his right arm. You push down the blue knob sticking out of his right arm until the blade is fully extended. Then, you can push the knob back up to the top of the arm to unextend it.

Overall, this Anakin figure doesn't excite me. I'm not really a fan of the Vintage-style Lightsaber feature. Also, Anakin did not use his lightsaber in scenes when he was in his Peasant Disguise, so I don't know why they gave him this gimmick. Oh well.
