Description from Gentle Giant Ltd
:Impressed by Anakin's skill with the Force, the Jedi Council quickly conferred upon him the status of General and Jedi Knight at the war's outset. Anakin led the 501st Legion of clone troopers on many campaigns, with Clone Captain Rex serving under him.
Anakin's brash nature and bold talk often placed him at odds with the other Jedi, many of whom view Anakin as a loose-cannon -- albeit an exceptionally talented one. In an effort to teach Anakin responsibility, Master Yoda gave him a Padawan learner, 14-year-old Ahsoka Tano. Though they were as different as a Master and his apprentice could be, Anakin and Ahsoka quickly found a common ground, which left Yoda wondering whether the responsibility of mentorship would actually calm Anakin's wild ways, or if he'd simply pass them on to his new Padawan.
I had a little bit of time to shoot some photos of another Maquette from 2009 this evening. Anakin Skywalker based on the popular hit television series The Clone Wars
. This piece is quite tall with the lightsaber blade attached (just under a foot), but still, just like the others in this line, very light. Ultra limited assembly required with just his lightsaber blade packed separately in the box. A nice all around presentation and once again, Gentle Giant nailed the cartoon likeness. Photos truly don't give you the wow factor that an in person viewing is sure to do, so if you have the chance to see one in person, check it out. You'll be in for a treat.RELEASE DATE: October, 2009
