Although I know some people really dislike these figures, I was fortunate enough to find an animated Obi-Wan this past weekend, and I really like these figures. They are something different, to be sure, but still cool in their own way. I really hope to be able to locate all of the figures in the two waves, but for now its just my lonely Obi . One thing I really like about these figures are their cards. Although it might not work great for the regular line, they are really neat for this line....with the big picture of the character on the side of the bubble...they really do stand out. I could spot the Obi Wan hanging on the peg from a ways away because of the card and bubble alone. I actually wouldn't mind seeing some animated-style OT figures, if they ever do a cartoon of those characters some day. Just something different to collect I guess. But, at the same time, I am with those that say they don't want them taking up shelf space from basic, (especially OT) figures. Those are still #1 with me .
