This animated-style Mace Windu was released in The Rise Of Boba Fett Ultimate Battlepack during The Clone Wars collection in August 2010. The set was a Toys'R'Us exclusive, and besides the spaceships Slave 1 and Mace Windu's Jedi Starfighter,
it included figures of Bossk, Anakin Skywalker, young Boba Fett in cadet uniform, this Mace Windu and R8-B7.
The set is based on the Boba Fett story arch from the end of the second season of the Clone Wars TV show, which concluded with the episodes "Death Trap", "R2 Come Home", and "Lethal Trackdown".
Mace Windu is a repack of the previously released Mace Windu from 2009, including the same accessories. The figure has 10 movable parts, including a ball-jointed neck, shoulders and elbows. The wrists, the waist and the legs are swivel jointed. There are no joints in the knees or ankles. Mace stands a little shaky on his feet, but with enough patience he can be balanced out. The purple lightsaber fits very well into both of the Jedi Master's hands, and the Clone helmet with the chest armor stays firmly attached. The two shoulder pieces snap-on OK, but it's a loose fit, and they feel a bit bulky.
The paint application on Mace Windu is identical with the previously released Mace Windu, and unfortunately the white on the forearm armor doesn't match the gray on the snap-on pieces and the helmet, which looks off. The figure's likeness to Mace Windu in the Clone Wars TV show is good, but the lack of knee and ankle joints make it difficult to pose it in more action oriented poses. All in all, it's only an average animated-style Mace Windu figure, and a repack at that, and there are better choices available today.
Ever since the Battle of Geonosis, young Boba Fett has made it his mission to confront the Jedi who defeated his father. Jango's son doesn't care that the duel between his father and Mace Windu was a fair battle between skilled warriors; Boba wants his chance to fight the Jedi. Eventually, his hunt is successful. He and Bossk fly Slave I to a planet where Mace and Anakin Skywalker are on a mission. The moment has come, and Boba is determined to make Windu pay for his actions on Geonosis, and to take his place as the greatest bounty hunter in the galaxy.
The seasoned and honorable Jedi Master faces a difficult confrontation with the son of Jango Fett.
