Using my patented toilet paper fix-it job


Hmm..I'll have to try that.  Thanx for trying it out, just looking for more variance in my Stormie army.

Remember, it's patented. You can send a check to...

For those interested, I noticed that this wave is in stock over at TRU.com (as well as Clone Wars Wave 3).  Priced at $7.99, but there is free shipping on all Star Wars stuff (with no minimum purchase).

Found FX-6 this weekend at Target.  It was the only figure out of the whole bunch I was interested in.

Now that I have this complete wave, I'd have to say that this was a pretty good wave. Not as good as Wave #2, but still a pretty solid wave.

Grievous is nice, I appreciate what Hasbro tried to do here. It doesn't work 100%, but it's still close enough. I think they should have stuck with either, two arms or four and not tried to make the figure double as both, but this does give them the opportunity to put permanently joined arms on the figure and give us a nice cloth cape at some point in the future.

The Commander Faie figure is nice. Was originally only planning on picking up one of these to open, but I might get a second one just 'cause I like how this figure turned out.

FX-6 is nice. Had a heck of a time trying to get one of the arms in, but other than that, once the figure was together, it looks great. Will make a nice addition to my mini display of the deluxe Anakin -> Vader on the table figure. Nice that they completed the trio of droids from that scene.

Stass Allie - nice figure, always welcome to have another female Jedi figure.

Bail Organa & Breha Organa - these two really puzzled me. If there was ever a time to re-package the infant Leia sculpt, it was with one of these two figures (perhaps with Breha). I never thought I'd see a Breha Organa figure. Heck, I definitely thought we'd see a Beru Whitesun figure before a Breha Organa figure, but whatever, nice to have her out of the way.

Trouble with FX-6? HELP?
« Reply #217 on: March 7, 2009, 07:24 AM »
One of my FX-6 arms/appendages doesn't fit where it's supposed to. Has anyone else had this problem?

It's the arm that's one-of-a-kind (looks like a tiny toothbrush) and should go between the single green IV and the double red IV. But, it's too large. Every photo I've seen of this figure says it the right spot but it ain't happening.

Help!

Yup.

I shaved the arm peg down with a scalpel until it fit into the hole.

It wasn't until then that all of my wildest FX-6 dreams came true.

That's weird... I didn't have any trouble putting mine together... maybe I did it wrong?

I probably put the arms in the wrong places as well.  I didn't lok at any pictures, just put them where they fit.

I found it a little odd that there was no instruction booklet to details which arms went where.  But the parts were made in such a way that only a certain arm will fit in a particular slot.

Hopefully in a couple days I'll have a definitive answer to this question from the figure's designer. Stay tuned.  :)

While we're on the subject of this figure... did anyone else barely ever see him at retail?  I never saw it in a big box store once.  I paid $12 for it at a comic shop because it'd been over a month since the wave first started showing up and I hadn't seen one. 

I never saw the other figures in the wave in any real quantity, I just ran across scraps a few times.  Only saw Grievous once.

That's odd right?

Yes, especially from what I've seen you gather up in your retail area.

I saw every figure in that wave 20 times.
