Saga '02-'04 / Re:Coll. 1 Boba Fett, Anakin, Mace & R2 review...
« on: March 3, 2003, 10:06 AM »
I was pleasantly suprised how much I like all of these figures.  I had a preconcieved notion that I would hate all of them but all of them have some redeeming qualities (even R2)

I love Boba's blast effect and the paint scheme.  His articulation could be better, the 300th Fett rules but this is an adequate rerelease

Anakin is awesome IMO, I agree the robe is a little off and could have been better executed but the articulation more than makes up for his shortcomings.  I also like the look of his metal hand.  We need Mace and Obi Wan from Episode 2 just like this!

Mace while having a horrid cloth cape and funny face expression is like you said SilverZed3 is actually pretty fun to play with.  The fact that we don't have a decent Mace from EpII yet is the reason so many people are ticked about this guy. A felt cape covering the rubber arms might have had better execution.  Which brings up why can't the capes be made like the Vintage ones which are vastly superior to anything Hasbro has put out yet!

R2 is again not the greatest but he actually is OK for what he is supposed to be.  If kids need an R2 this will be perfect for them to play with, I have many R2's with Holo Leia's and R2's with tools to customize and fill dioramas.  THis one really is for completionists and diorama builders only to try and recreate the C-3PO & R2 Arena scene!

I'll reiterate that I found these figures to be not as bad as I thought they would be.  

The action features could have been implemented a lot better, ala the '03 Darth Tyranus who has a leg squeeze or the Obi Wan who has a pseudo hidden button.  If anyone remembers the old Super Powers line, that is how action features should be implemented into 3 3/4" action figures.  If you are wondering then, I'd buy Anakin and Boba for sure. And maybe buy R2 and Mace, if you already have some older versions which are all superior to these two versions, then go ahead and pass!

Saga '02-'04 / Re:New Saga 4-packs: Love 'em or hate 'em?
« on: March 3, 2003, 09:53 AM »
I love the Imperial Set, I'll pick up three or four probably.  I'll pass big time on the Bounty Hunters though.  The EU swoop does nothing for me.  Sweet idea, I hope they do more of these instead of the accessory sets...as long as there are new figures (even if they are repaints)

Saga '02-'04 / Re:Holy cow! We're getting TWO new Jedi Lukes!!!
« on: March 3, 2003, 09:52 AM »
I'm really stoked about this news!  I cannot wait for '04 as it won't be here soon enough.  The '03 Luke looks OK, and for the most part all of the Collection 1 figures this year have been pretty swell.  The face looks bad, a pet peeve of mine is expressions put onto figures faces.  Sweet news!

Saga '02-'04 / New Pics, Wedding Padme, Wat Tambor and Coleman
« on: February 19, 2003, 09:14 AM »

Wat Tambor is amazing, I am really pumped by that figure.

Should it not be Padme Skywalker and not Padme Amidala!!!  Something is a little off with her face, not so angelic, I still love every new Padme figure.

Coleman is Coleman, I'll buy him, I know a certain group of people who will be wetting themselves when they see this one  8)

Are you sure the yoda, etc. will be EU. If they come out in the fall, that would coincide with The Clone Wars CG cartoon. Maybe their based on the cartoons pre-production drawings? ???
ANything outside of the movies themselves is considered EU, that includes the Ewoks Movies, Droids cartoons, the Shadows of the Empire and this current abomination  :P

It is neat to see what people look like it gives you a better mental idea of what you are conversing with.

One of my weirdest threads ever was at Rebelscum where we discussed using different "inner-voices" for different users, I should bump that one up.

Were you expecting short dark and handsome Matt  :P
