The repacks are very disappointing, particularly Arwen, and WHERE IS BOROMIR?  And wasn't Frodo supposed to be 'NEW'?  Sigh.  I'll only be collecting new figs from now on, for as long as they last.

The only one I'm still looking for is ROTK Gandalf the White.  I saw him once at KB but he was $10, so I decided to wait.  All the stores have around here are Gollum and Smeagol, or Frodo and Eomer.

They're not exactly right, but close enough for my purposes.  I just took the coat off and painted them a sort of blue-gray mix.  I think a better candidate for this would be the Aragorn that comes with Brego, since he has Boromir's gauntlets.

I agree with everyone's nitpicks, but for the most part these look great.  Luke reminds me so much of the day I bought the vintage Jedi Luke, his body entirely wrapped up in his cloak.  Cool.

There were two there when I found him and I really considered buying one to customize a robed version, which would be simple enough.  I've already done that with the Ep1 robed version, so I passed.  For now.  ;D

The Big Lebowski.  It's unstoppably watchable.   ;D

I bought Obi Wan today, and this is without a doubt my favorite PT figure so far.  I'm a huge Obi fan so to see this kind of attention devoted (finally) to the master is much appreciated.  Now all I need is a robed Obi with this much articulation and I'm happy.

I don't like it either, but since I'm an opener, I don't mind so much.  I was sort of looking forward to adding a King Aragorn and Armored Witch King to my carded collection, but alas...

LOL, OCB.   ;D

And HMI snagged the bestest avatar out there.  Miranda Otto.  Sigh.

Me either.  Tonight I bought a FOTR Strider at KB and made an Amon Hen Aragorn out of him.  Pretty simple, really.  And the TTT EE was awesome!

I personally think that there isn't any character Hasbro won't at least consider, but to play along:

1) Dorme: Boring as boring can get, but I luvs her.

2) Padme Celebration Gown: If Hasbro cranks out two or three Padme's a year, maybe.

3) Swimming Obi Wan: Hasbro has something against good Obi Wan figs.

4) Rep Teers: Peg poison I'm sure, but cool.

5) Two part removable helmet Darth Vader: because it's apparently too hard to do.

Hopefully that's true.  It wouldn't be right if Christopher Lee didn't grace the screen with all his castmates one last time.  Just have him wave goodbye, I don't care.

Best news: New Bossk.   ;D

Dodonna:  Another boring old white guy.  He's awesome!   ;D

Gold Leader:  I really like him.  I always like pilot figures.  Now, if we can only get a Wedge with this much love.

TIE Pilot: I've been waiting for this resculpt for years.  He looks great.  One of my all time fave characters.

Antillies: Looks extremely young, but will look better with the helmet on.  Another guy I never imagined would see the light of day.
