AND, I broke down and purchased my first Jedi Force figure (Luke) last night.† One of the nephew's birthday is coming up at the end of the month (11-24) and it seemed like it'd make a good gift as he's got a BUNCH of Rescue Heroes stuff.†
I guess we'll see if kids actually like them or not at Thanksgiving when he gets his gift!
Just an update, we gave the nephew his Jedi Force Luke shortly before Thanksgiving (11/22) and he seeemd to really like it that evening.† Lots of goofing around with Luke and his saber.
Well, apparently since then "Luke Skywamper" is seeing a lot of action.† My wife tallked with her sister today and found out that the nephew has been dragging Luke everywhere for the past week - church, grandma's house, everywhere, including going to bed together at night.
Along with the figure, there have apparently been numerous requests to watch Luke in his movies as well.† According to the sis-in-law, the favorite so far seems to be Jedi because that's the one where "Luke fights bad Vader and helps the monkeys" (I think ewoks = monkeys, but I'm never sure when it comes to 3-year olds ).
I guess we will have to add a Jedi Force Chewie and Vader to the loot we're getting him for Christmas becuase at least one kid seems to like them!† †
