Ha, he looks like a paper weight next to 3PO.  ;D

Great stuff, Thanks for the pic's.  8)

I`m going to take shots like that of all of them for the hell of it, when the
next SW kubs come out. Kinda funny to see them next to each other.
I really laugh at the itty bitty arms on these guys, like little t-rex arms  ;D

Nice pix, Adam.  Pretty unique looking little guys there.  But I see they're already delving into rehashes within their first 8 figures (Gold and Silver 3POs).  Even worse than Hasbro...  Yikes!

I really don`t think they`ll be doing more Star Wash figures, I haven`t heard
of any more coming anyway. There is a regular line of these figures, and I think
just wanted to tip their hats to SW maybe... but I don`t know for sure the whole
story behind these.
They hit a lot of major characters with this one, I guess they could still do Fett, Obi, R2 and 3 others in the next wave, but I really doubt they are making another set
of these. At least I hope not $$$  ;)

"Star Wash"? Sounds like Sean Connery named the line... :-\

I got the set of 8 on Friday.  I got them from the same seller Adam did.  Very neat little dudes.   :)

Very cool!

They were hard for me to resist. Not Kubrick hard, but I did need them in the
collection.

If you don't mind me asking, which seller did you buy from?

Don't mind at all.  I got them from talltallcat.  I'm not sure if he does this with all his buyers, but he even sends pics of your package before he ships it out.  Very nice guy to deal with.   :)

Hey, I got a picture of the package too, I forgot all about that, lol.
I got mine from pretty quickly, faster than a lot of US sellers I have dealt
with.

Thanks for the info guys!

I've been considering this set for a while - I just get a kick out of the uniqueness of it.  And it's a complete set, which means I can buy the 8 and be done.  Nice and easy.

And knowing a trustworthy seller, I just may go for this...  :)

No, not rehash.  Chase!  The silver 3PO is a chase figure.  Chase figure.  Kinda like kubricks.  And crack.  You know you want them.  Or at least I know I do.  ;)

Pretty cute!

Forgive me for asking the dumb obvious question, but are these "real" SW figures or bootlegs/knockoffs? It seems to me like they're shooting for the obvious SW connection while making them different enough to squeak under the blatant copyright infringment radar....

They are not official SW merchandise, just close enough to squeak around any
copyright stuff I think  ;)

Umm, can someone answer this (I hesitate to say 'Burning') question...

Do these, um, figures *all* have their bu-double-T hole painted on?

Can someone here provide a pic (just for amusement, mind you) 8)

I've got a few of these, but they're packed away to be moved and I can't remember if they're painted on or not.  I've never looked that close I guess.  ;)
