I don't get why the Emperor sent Dooku to get them to execute Anakin. I mean, that's his future apprentice he has been grooming, why would he want Dooku to take him out all of a sudden? Maybe I missed something but that struck a really false note somehow.

I guess the idea is that the strong would survive. If Anakin is worthy of the Sith, he would escape execution.  Recall in the microseries that they greenlight Ventress going after Anakin...Sidious saying it matters not if she succeeds.

Finally, the last part of the Zygerian arc.

SPOILERS

The ruthlessness of the good guys in this was...awesome, though Rex's action was questionable compared what happened in the Umbarra arc.

Plo Koon seems to be the most used back-up Jedi (Yeah, I know, Filoni likes him), that's cool...but it might be nice to see someone else sometime.

Why did the Z-9(?) fighters have a hard time with the Zygerian fighters? Or was Matchstick having a bad day?

One part I didn't buy was the  queen getting some last words...your windpipe is crushed but you get to hold on for a minute for that dramatic line (Despite your windpipe being crushed!). Either Dooku force choked her to death completely or he didn't.  Maybe it was internal bleeding...heck if I know.

Anyway, solid ending to an uneven arc. The first part was mixed bag, as was the second...with our heroes seeming incompetent. They redeemed themselves in part 3...mostly. Liked it more than the Mon Calamari story, though.

You and I have different definitions for "cheap".  :P

The bad part of overseas sellers being aware of certain figures' after market value. Otherwise, those would be like under $5. Probably have  storage crates full of them.

I've already decided that I'm going to peel off all the character debut stickers at the store and stick them on Darth Maul.

That's committing fraud!  :P

"I thought I was getting a debut character, but it wasn't! What's Hasbro gonna do about this?  :'( "

That would be "Commander, tear this ship apart until you find those plans, and bring me the passengers...I want them alive!"

Again "commander". Is it any wonder Kenner called them Imperial commander, AT-AT Commander (even though that guy had an onscreen name and rank), Rebel Commander and the inaccurate Star Destroyer Commander?

The AT-RT seems the more popular of the two, though I've seen them both in the past week.

So, really the after the fact ranks  are what's wrong, like most EU stuff.  ;) No one considered the dialouge exchange, that an admiral would be telling a general that the general's starfleet is at risk.

Yes, "commander" absolutely a liberally used term...one of the silly things...like that there seems to no ranks between captain and general in the Rebel Alliance, (there are, but none used onscreen) and the Alliance gives out general titles like they were party favors.

Picked up a CW blue/gray AAT at Wal-Mart for $12.40.

They had Ahsoka's Starfighter...is that hard to find? I couldn't find any on ebay, which is strange.

Still can't see much of the supposed new cockpit for the AAT on the box photo.

Something I noticed a few times recently.

Why does Admiral Motti call General Tagge "Commander"?

"Dangerous to your starfleet, Commander, not to this battle station!"

He's a general, and generals wouldn't seem to command fleets...or would they in the SW universe...General Calrissian's first(?) act is to pilot a ship in fleet engagement.

Or did the ranks come after the movie was filmed?

Be sure to watch Donny and Marie Osmond Star Wars bit, too. Chris Kristofferson is in it!

I was already looking at just a handful of figures I was gonna get, if I can find them. The increase puts some of those in the "not sure" category, such as the deleted scenes bunch.

I'm still down for Evazan, Death Star Trooper and Kithaba. But I'd even try to get them cheaper off ebay if I can.
