Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!
Picked up Nom Anor and Barriss Offee from the Star Wars Vintage Collection. Decent enough figures. That plastic cape on Barriss isn't too clever though as it means the only pose you can achieve is one of just standing there whereas the soft-goods cape on Anor is too big and clumsy.
Is there no happy medium?
Originally Barriss Offee was displayed with a soft-goods fabric cloak when she was shown for the very first time at the 2011 Toy Fair in New York, but by the time the first retail copies of her made it into stores she had a plastic cape instead.
Here's the official Hasbro presentation photo from Toy Fair(February 2011):
