Finally found one of these today and I have to admit it is pretty sweet.  I love the new pack-in pilots on these - light years ahead of the generic stuff we used to get with ships.

Put me down in the Hate This Idea group.  Its creative, but in a galaxy with millions or billions of ships, having Anakin own the same ship as Lando/Han doesn't make any sense.  I know Anakin is good at tweaking ship, so it might make sense from that perspective, but there are too many other flaws in it for me.

#1 I always got the sense that Han and Lando made the modifications to make the ship faster and more maneauverable.  If it was Anakin, then hat just further dilutes the character and use of anyone who's not a Jedi in the SW universe.

#2 Anakin seems to prefer fast, sleek, 1-man fighters.  It doesn't seem like a bulky, "ugly" freighter would be his vehicle of choice.

#3 Its bad enough that Vader doesn't recognize threepio.  He certainly would have recognized "his ship" aiding in the destruction of the first Death Star.  Not having any reaction to the ship in the movies if he truly owned it or had anything to do with it before is a problem.

$90 = no thanks.   >:(

I'm not a fan of bouncing boobies on this site but I'll jive on this one...

I wonder if that little handle at the top of the gun moves

You must be an a$$ man.  :P

Wait, do you mean an "a$$-man" or " a$$, man?"

I can send you my extra arm from the Human Torch.  Shoot me your address and it's yours.


Thanks John!  PM sent!

I had the same problem - wouldn't let me send you a response.   :(

I think if the rest of the SW stories weren't there and OTC ws released today, people would have just as much fun with it today, though the following would likely be smaller since there's no "history" to build on.  I have some friends with kids who are now of "star wars age" and really love the movies. 

What bothers me is all of the EU stuff they've put in-between the films.  SOTE was okay, but things like The Force Unleashed, I think, will have a negative impact on the films in the long run.  The TFU premise is really cool - incredibly strong force users pulling star destroyers out of the sky is pretty cool, but it makes the limited force powers in the movies seem a little dull and unexciting IMO.

I like that the butt of the rifle is wooden - seems likely that the Empire would utilize wood in their off planet blaster technology.

I have a $10 off any $75 purchase I got a few weeks back, but I haven't pulled the trigger yet.  $35 - like first reported would have been much more manageable (with the $10 off coupon of course) 

This should have been $29.99 or less along with the other battle packs.  I still get pissed every time I hear about this stupid set.

Found the Ares wave (most of it) at a KC Wal Mart.  They were only $10.44....freakin' sweet.  :)  No Crossbones, Guardian or Vision but I did get the rest including the Human Torch variant.  Good looking wave, though I was most looking forward to Vision.


YAY!  Been waiting for this wave.  Anyone not need their Ares pieces?  Please let me know and I will pay/trade well!

Time to give some props to Aaron Rodgers.  He fought back to play this week (just like you'd have expected from Favre) and played great despite the injury.  Sucks that they lost a close one, but AR is well on his way to building a new legacy in Green Bay.

I love this set.  A new vehicle (of sorts) and three new figures.  THANK YOU for not repacking the same old crap!
