Hall of Justice / DC Pocket Heroes
« on: April 15, 2004, 04:01 PM »
Anyone else collect these?

I do, and I love them.  Sure, they're hard to stand up, they tip over easy, etc. but I really love them.  Great character selection so far.

I finally got a chance to get to the comics book store last night and pick up my Green Lantern box set:
Green Lantern (John Stewart)
Jade
Sentinel (Alan Scott)
Guy Gardner (Yellow Ring)
Green Lantern (Kyle - original duds)
Parallax (Hal Jordan)

I'm a big fan of the Silver Age GLC, so I was pretty stoked to pick this one up.  They look nice with my GL (Guy), GL (Hal), GL (Kyle - new duds), Sinestro, and Guardian.

Anyone else have a craving for DC's Pocket Heroes?

Or am I the only crazy person who buys these...

Toy Reviews / Anakin Skywalker's Jedi Starfighter
« on: November 13, 2003, 12:10 PM »
Hi All,

I picked up Anakin's Starfighter last night at Target.

I wasn't sure I was gonna buy it, but the first few episodes of the cartoon convinced me I needed to have it.

Features:
VTOL Thruster: Positionable rear thruster for verticle take off/landing.  Goofy feature, but at least Anakins's Starfigher is a little unique here.

Positionable lasers:  Four paser cannnons, the two on the underside of the ship have a swing down feature that gives it almost a x-wing quality

Swing Wings:  Another feature stolen from US military aircraft, the wings (wingtips?) are positionable for either "attack" or "flight" mode.

Proton Torpedo:  Neifty little launch feature, you turn his Astromech's head to launch the missile.  Neat play-feature.

Drawbacks:
(big surprise here) - Clone Wars Anakin, you know the PILOT of this vehicle DOESN'T Fit in the cockpit!  No surprise with E2 vehicles having similar "features".   Ani's stance is too wide, his skirt too infexible, his Arms/sleeves too poofy!  I tried to cram him in there and it could be done, but only with potential damage to the figure (loosening/cracked joints)

On the plus side, I was able to get the Secret Ceremony Anakin (minus the cloak) into the pilot seat with much less difficulty (and the headband fits on him too, so there is a viable alternative.

Overall, I din't like the look of the toy at first, but with the cartoon and first hand "play experience" I can honestly say I am glad I bought it.

I give it a B+

Not the greatest vehicle, but a unique interpretation of the Jedi Starfighter...

From yakface.com:

"I don't remember reading about this one, but I was actually
looking for the second series of clone wars figures from the
cartoon this morning and ran accross a couple of cases of
the series 1 that had all the Arc Troopers repainted in red."

I like the new back end, but wish the wings were a bit bigger...
