I got the Boromir bundle a while back.  Definitely worth it.  The only fig I'm still looking for is Gandalf the White.

I think the EP1 Obi Wan, Qui Gon, and Maul all deserve figs with as much articulation as the SA Clone; maybe in a few years we'll have the desire again for EP2 SA versions of Dooku, Obi, and Anakin.  And a Mace that does not suck, too.   ;)

If I had room I'd be all over this thing.  I just don't have room for one more thing.  The doors are bursting at the seams with toys!   :o

I totally agree.  If the LOTR figs were 3 3/4, they would be even more popular than they are now.  I remember Toy Biz flirted with the idea before committing to the present scale, but felt the hobbits would be too diminutive in the SW scale.  Obviously Play along didn't think so.

I do like the 6" scale, though, and many of the LOTR figs, Marvel Legends, etc., are fantastic.

James, Getting Away With It... Live.  A great parting shot from a truly underrated and underappreciated band.

I was one of the folks who thought the repacks made sense, from the vantage point that there are lots of folks who came into the films and toys late.  They stop making sense when you see them, when you see there's no incentive (paint changes, new accessories) for collectors to buy them, and when many of these are already available at every KB in America.  I don't know what to think.

Christina I think is gifted in voice, but for some reason wants to be Marylin Manson.  Or a porn star.  Not sure.

I echo everyone's sentiments above.  What really impresses me is next year, Hasbro seems to be sweeping up lots of characters we've wanted for a long time.  If the lists are accurate, nearly every Luke will be available.  All the Rebel generals - once pipe dreams - are done in one year.  Ewoks!  The Cabbeshite guy!  R-3PO!  The Dignitaries!  It amazes.   This past year they finished off the Jedi Council (EP1 style).   Does anyone else think there isn't much left to do?
