#18: Star Wars The Clone Wars - Cad Bane

Cad Bane is a victim of the terrible antagonist naming system they've got going on for The Clone Wars, but he is a fun character. In the Star Wars universe, bounty hunters are usually pretty cool, and Cad Bane always means trouble whenever he shows up, so I figured he would be a cool figure to pick up. Unfortunately, the first version of him had pretty terrible leg articulation, so I decided to skip him. This new version corrects that by adding knee joints (but no ankles), and has the additional bonus of an included Todo 360. So that's basically a little Seth Green figure. Only its head is articulated, and it kind of has to be looking straight down to balance. Another improvement to this version of Cad Bane is that the lower part of his coat is now made from soft goods rather than plastic, so he can sit. His hat is removable and he comes with two blaster pistols that can be holstered, as well as a satchel that can hang over his shoulder. I've been waiting for Hasbro to release the figure of Bane in clone trooper armor, but I'm not even sure if they are still planning to release that. Until then, this is a good enough version of the character.
