I like the original Kenner's ability to sit down. And the soft goods weren't bad for its day.

For some reason one the POTF2 figures had a karate chop pose, probably for dealing with trespassing wookies.

I'm of the mind that the recent releases are too tall. They look nice. But based on recent figures, Bespin Cloud City has gigantism epidemic. Poor Lando is looking shorter all the time.

In the pics over at Rebelscum's rumor thread, the vintage carded Super Battle Droid is, of course, close to the same one that's been in Saga Legends for years, no ball jointed ankles. But it has a pistol or something in one hand, which is strange...don't recall them holding anything ever.

Let's see, I could wait and get the carded one with it's pistol for $8+, or get the Arena one with more articulation and another figure now for $13 (I think).

The POTF2 dancing Lobot is the definitive take on the character.  ;)

The Kenner one always reminded me of Don Rickles.

I found the OTC version for cheap at a Kay-Bee, the only Star Wars figure they had. And hte only OTC packaged figure I ever bought.

I don't think he needs an update, at least, not any time soon.

I noticed named Imperial Officers come up on rumor lists but hardly any are ever made. Needa was made. I can't recall any others, besides the Endor Battle Pack guy.

Hasbro's Deryl DePriest said Lucasfilm rejected Sarissa Jeng for the Arena Two-Packs, why would they take a bigger risk making her a single carded figure?

Savage Oppress is a super-awesome warrior because he was infused with evil magic? Really? All the training with weapons, mastery of the force...and now it's pumping up some village tough using sorcery and then telling them what to do? How come the Night Sisters aren't ruling the cosmos?

Ventress, if she earned any sympathy last time, she lost it all. She orders Oppress to betray someone close to him (which he does, cuz now he's demonic), even though she was the near-victim of a betrayal last episode. Is that gonna come back to bite her in the butt?

Roswell Grey Jedi perished! NOOOO!  :P

These look great!!

And I really like the mixed wave.  It's much more interesting to me.  And, honestly, if that was an all AOTC line, I might skip the clones.  But mixed up like that, I want them. Don't know why.

I assume the AT-RT pilot is very articulated, because we never got one that was SA.  Am I correct?

The 2005 carded one was SA, other than having just a swivel waist instead of a ball joint.

However, it was very difficult to get that figure to move its hips into a sitting position, meaning as a driver it sucked. It was possible to get them to sit, but the figure's hips would be loose/ruined...at least in my experience. 

Also, the 2005 figure's right hand was nearly worthless; it was made very wide, possibly to hold  a big spring action weapon. But the result was too wide to hold much of anything.

So it's a deserved upgrade, if coming years too late.

I always wondered if Luke's shot was a publicity thing or something cut.  I've never heard/seen what it would be, story-wise, if it is a cut shot.

I'd gotten the impression it was part of the Wampa invasion of the base, but then why was he dressed in his flight uniform?

They really missed the opportunity to give the Rebel Ground Crewman a goatee.

One oddity with the plan to kill Dooku...if you could get close enought to successfully send a dart to dull his senses, you might as well use a lethally poisoned dart to kill him. But that wouldn't satisfy Ventress' revenge enough.

Also, Ventress surviving the lightining, the fall, and rescuing the two night sisters using the force,...gives enough leeway for Mace Windu somehow surviving in ROTS. Sure his fall was greater, and he'd probably have to cling to a moving speeder rather than a cliff, with one hand. But, strangers things have happened.

This is more interesting that I'd thought.

The guy in the movie was in grey, different tunic, no gloves...boots unknown...heck, pants unknown.

Somehow I doubt they'll do an accurate version.

Sidious knows Ventress is becoming too powerful, but doesn't sense she is still alive. Hmmm...

Those poor salvagers.

If Ventress was taught by a Jedi, why does she seem to hate them so much?

2011 and they repacked a 1997 2-1B. LOL.

More old packaging for people who like old packaging.

.  A small group of theatrical release Sy Snootles fans aren't going to get the puppet version released as a figure. 

Yeah, and Hasbro will never make Willrow Hood or Yarna.

The Original Trilogy / Re: Are Stormtroopers Clones?
« on: January 4, 2011, 12:07 AM »
Mark Hamill's IMDB profile lists him as 5' 9" (likely inaccurate, he's shorter more like 5' 7"). Temeura Morrison's lists his height as 5' 7".

Go figure.
