While the new figures are neat, why rerelease Zett? I just bought that crappy figure after months of holding off. Argh. >:(

While rumours of this set have been building for a while, I wasn't that excited about it.  But the carded collector in me likes how it looks.  The figures themselves though?  Meh.

I'm not tremendously excited by these, but it is refreshing to see exclusive figures that are actually all-new sculpts. That's a huge improvement over all of 2005's exclusive product. SWS is probably the best outlet for these particular characters, as well.

Zett makes the price sting quite a bit for me. Bleh.

In the end you basically have to pay $10 each for these 4 figures.  I don't know whether to get this or not.  It's not like I really, really want this.  But it will nag at me if I don't get them.  Eh, I don't know.

I'm actually mildly impressed with the set.  After the Sacul crap I was convinced this would be junk but at least it's 3 new figures and they're obscure characters and I could care less whether they're Lucas and family - as long as they were actually IN the movies.

The price tag is a bit much, but it's cheaper (per figure) than the Target 12.99'ers.

The figs themselves look really good, especially Chi, who looks like they just shrunk her down right out of the film.  The price holds me up right now, though.  If I had more cash to spend on figs, I would definitely get it.

They forgot one of Katie's chins. :( Stoopid Hasbro. :'(




I hope they included hyper blinking action as well, to replicate her performance in the film. That girl can blink 30 times in 15 seconds.

MetalJedi - I can see why $35.00 seems high - don't get me wrong, I think the price is too high.  But for all new sculpts, the diorama builder and the customizer in me is drooling.  I'll turn the Zetts into Anakin fodder for the Temple Slaughter.

They forgot Georg Sacul's beer belly, why not forget her extra chin.

They're all fat... these figures are their way of escaping that fact... Leave them to dream!

I like Baron Papaparanoid and Chins Eeksway... but the other two aren't worth $4.77, much less $10.

Ah, the age old debate... why keep these in the box?  Open and enjoy first, and actually "touch" your figures.  The philosphy we all lived by as kids - it's what keeps getting new figures fun.

Well not a surprise to get these for anyone, but they do look nice to me...  Lots of detail.  4 sorta boring figures we'd not likely have gotten otherwise and the Zett looks different to me than the basic figure...  The legs look less posed, I hope that's the case.  I like dull figures like this sometimes, and as an exclusive it's cool, the price is a bit much to take but one set won't be death...  They'll come to close to $10 per figure though, that sucks no matter how you slice it, but at least they're new (mostly).
