This animated style Anakin Skywalker figure was released in Fall 2008 in a Target exclusive "Ultimate" Battlepack. The figure is a repaint of the previously released Anakin Skywalker figure from 2008's basic Clone Wars assortment.
Compared with the previous release, this version of Anakin Skywalker features a scar in the face, an overall darker color scheme, it's missing the Jedi Order's symbol on the left shoulder, and both shoulders are now "scratched-up" looking. With 10 joints the figure is not quite "super articulated", and while the upper body has all the joints you might want, the lower body is lacking knee and ankle joints. The included lightsaber is a good fit for Anakin's right hand, but it sits very loosely in his left. The blaster attachment for Anakin's right or left arm is a tight fit, but due to the size of it will cause the figure to loose its balance quickly.
All in all, this Anakin Skywalker is just an OK figure. It looks nice and is very close to the version seen in the Clone Wars TV Show, but there are better looking, more articulated animated-style Anakin Skywalker action figures available today.
