they totally suck save the one holding the blade- he's the only salvagable one however- NOT ONE OF THE NEW ETHEREAL MODELS HAS THE FRAKKEN RIDGE BONE

I like them. (Raises hands to ward off many furious blows)

The one with the blade looks cool, and the one with the Darth Maul - Lollipops in his hands would look good if you gave him something else in his other hand. The Staff one is abit static, but overall not too bad.

They have this feel about them that I would rather stay away from.... The original ethereals had a feel I could like.

Not too bad... just the feel about them doesn't quite fit...

Yeah, I have to admit I'm not too sure about these. May be time to grab an Aun'shi while I can. The one top right in scarecrow pose isn't too bad, but unlike the sniper w/drones or plastic piranhas, I don't feel that I must have these.

how did the ridge bone used to look like? or rather, what is a ridge bone?

Ummm... different than the original Ethereals. Not necessarily better (I think the old ones were quite good) but not bad either. Perfectly good new figures but no reason to throw out the old ones if you already have them.

RIDGE BONE? RIDGE BONE? I thought that was a flash line from the casting!


But in regards to the new models, I am ambivalent. While I think its noble that there are distinct ethereal models, They feel too much like the amazons, I keep looking for lizardment to be lurking in the trees. They look tropical and primitve to me. I will invariably grab a few probably, but they might spend a few months or decades in the blister pack in a shoebox.

They look like trash. Ethereals are supposed to be austere. They are not supposed to be pimps.

I'll keep my statue of liberty ethereal, thanks.
