This animated-style Anakin Skywalker 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, this Anakin Skywalker, young Boba Fett in cadet uniform, 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".
Anakin is a repack of the previously released Anakin Skywalker from 2009, minus the jet-pack and the "glass dome" helmet. The only weapon included with the Jedi was his blue lightsaber, which he can hold nicely in both hands. Anakin is super articulated with 14 joints, including ball-joints in both shoulders, both elbows, the waist, both knees and ankles. The only swivel joints are in both forearms.
The paint application on Anakin is very well done, with the darker colors giving it a more realistic appearance. The shoulder armor in particular stands out with a cool used and roughed-up look. It's an overall fantastic figure to pick for a re-release, but unfortunately Hasbro didn't include a jet-pack, and so Anakin has a hole in his back which has no use. If the figure is displayed on a shelf, nobody will notice the hole, but it feels like a half-finished job on Hasbro's behalf. All in all though, it's a super articulated Anakin Skywalker figure with a cool paint job and a great likeness to the character in the Clone Wars TV show.
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.
Anakin finds unexpected trouble when he accompanies Mace on a mission for the Jedi Council.
