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.

1. I just turned 29.
2. I can Six Degress myself to virtually anyone in the world.  For example: I met Brian May who met Princess Di who met Mother Theresa who met the Pope.
3. I nearly fell off the side of the Irish castle seen in Braveheart because I didn't realize I was thrity feet up in the air when I jumped on to it from another wall.
4. I have two SOTE Vaders on GC and no BK Uruk Hai to trade them for.
5. I've written three novels.  Well, three and two half ones.  Do two half books make one?
6. My favorite all time band is U2, followed by the Beatles.
7. I've been in two bus accidents.  Not responsible for either one.
8. The only time I saw the World Trade Center was from an airplane.
9. My friend Sugu and I had to literally break out of the Kodak Theater in L.A. after a movie at the Mann multiplex to get back to our car, three days before the Oscars.
10. My first memory is seeing SW at the Skylark drive in 1978.
11. I met my girlfriend on the 4th of July.
12. I'm applying to grad school.  D'oh!

I really liked it.  Very energetic and more like the OT than the PT in style with all the droids and hanger shots and Yoda on his camel type thing.  Five minutes is WAY too short, though.  There's no good reason for it being little more than a commercial.

Snively, you said white dress Eowyn?  The only one I know of is blue/purple.  If it was white, this would be a big variation.

A definitive HOF series... count me in BIG TIME.   ;D

I think it's a good idea.   The core characters will always be popular with kids and impulse buyers, and it's a chance for some who missed these figs before to catch up.  Some of them aren't great choices (Anakin HD and Obi Wan Coruscant).  And by making this a separate assortment, Hasbro may be making this available to retailers all year, especially for next fall, when the classic characters might be most in demand.   :)
