Episode 1 / Re: The Original "Midnight Madness"
« on: May 9, 2003, 11:23 AM »
I admit I was roped in by Midnight Madness.  At least the hype.  I didn't attend, but I was certainly curious.  I had only gotten mildly back into collecting the previous year when I bought some Action Fleet pieces.  This, after my Star Wars hiatus from 1984 to 1998!

So, instead of attending Midnight Madness (I had to work the next day at 6 AM!), I went after work.  I decided "You know what?  These are kinda cool.  I'm going to get some figures".

So, I got Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, Anakin, Darth Sidious, Palpatine, and Queen Amidala.  Then, I asked one of the guys at the store "Do you have any more Darth Maul's?"  He disappears for a couple of minutes, and brings one back to me.  And that's how this mess all started for me, all over again!

I've heard that the cartoon is coming out in November.  I'm thinking possibly July or August for the Clone Wars toy lines.

Conventions / Re: Wizard World in Chicago
« on: May 9, 2003, 11:10 AM »
A friend of mine has gone to this show religiously for the past several years.  Both of us went to the Wizard World Show in Philadelphia, which was a substantial show.  He informed me that the show in Chicago was easily double the size of the Philly show, if not bigger.

Toy Reviews / Re: Anakin Secret Ceremony
« on: May 8, 2003, 01:04 PM »
It should certainly be mentioned that the articulation is pretty good on this Anakin.  I've got one loose, and it doesn't fail to impress.

ARTICULATION
-2 x ball jointed shoulders (really 4 points right here.  In my book, one ball joint equals 2 normal joints, since it aids the arm in moving horzontally and vertically)
-2 mid-arm swivel joints
-neck
-waist
-2 x legs
-2 x ankles (which twist around and extend to "tippy toes".  again, a more versatile joint in the same school of thought as the ball joint)

Add on top of that, that this is one of the more neutrally posed Anakins, sans action features, and I'm really happy with this one.

Toy Reviews / Re: Aayla Secura

I've got an open sample of Aayla Secura, and she can actually be posed kicking.  That was a pleasant surprise, IMO.

She was definitely worth the wait, from seeing her getting sculpted at Celebration 2 last May until making my purchase in March.
