Other Toy Lines / Re: McFarlane Sportspicks

Some of these new figures are cool.  A few of the choices are pretty obvious.  But there's definitely at least a couple of head-scratchers in there in the MLB and NFL lines.  I'm refraining from commenting on the NHL line since I'm ignorant on Hockey.

Most of those are in fact repaints.  The SAGA Ki-Adi Mundi has an additional bit of articulation as well as the different lightsaber & blast effect.  Also, I do consider the Hoth Darth Vader to be more of a re-release of the Imperial Forces 4-pack Vader.  This figure was signifigantly changed from the POTJ Emporer's Wrath figure, so I do regard them differently.  But most of the rest are really just repaints.

Check out the Making of Episode III Web Documentary, The Wookiees Are Back.  In it, animation director Rob Coleman tells some of the Wookiee actors that they are the senior warriors of the pack, while Chewbacca is one of the youngsters.  This might explain why many of the Wookiees are considerably larger than Chewbacca.

Looks like we might be getting the Clone Turbo Tank AND the AT-TE.  I can't imagine why Hasbro might make the AT-TE Gunner and Turbo Tank Driver otherwise.

I was very happy to find the red and yellow Clone Troopers early this week.  It was my first find in quite some time.  I got those along with the ARC Trooper, Anakin and Grievous.  Now to track down that blue Clone!

The Prequel Trilogy / Re: ROTS Picture Thread

I think some of them have been leaked through someone at Topps.  Some of the images that have surfaced are quite similar to images that have been shown on the upcoming Topps ROTS cards.

What about the Darth Sidious figure?  There's got to be something worthy of custom fodder under that robe.

Scored a couple more of these.  $7 at WalMart & $4.92 at Target.  Gotta love the clearance aisle!

I'm not customizing a piece that retail for $80.  I'm not made of money.

That HD Uruk Hai is definitely cool.  That's one I've been waiting for for some time.  I'm wondering what that second Aragorn is.  I know the first one is the Weathertop figure.  Is the second one yet ANOTHER HD Aragorn?

Welcome to let's wait for baseball mode, Scott.

I haven't opened my FF Boxset yet in hopes that Movie Sue is better looking than the Boxset Sue :-\

Don't bet on it!  Apparently Jessica Alba and her manager sent quite the nasty note to Toy Biz complaining about her Sue Storm figure.  She didn't like it at all.  But you can always get the figure of her from the Sin City toy line and customize her into the Invisible Woman.  That one is actually made by a good toy company.

Actually, I don't think Obi-Wan would "lose" anything.  Part of his backstory after TPM is that he changed his lightsaber fighting style.  He went from being a Form 4 lightsaber practitioner like Qui-Gon and took up Form 3 after Qui-Gon was killed by Darth Maul.  Form 3 was almost totally focused on being a defensive lightsaber technique and it made Obi-Wan especially hard to defeat.  You can actually read a lot about this in the EPISODE II Visual Dictionary.

Well, some of them are kind of obvious.  Plus your list was "inspiring".

I'm not a bigtime fan of the repacks, but there are some that could stand to be done.  I'll list them by their appearance in a film.
