That show is year round so I am assuming it will be there all the time.

Oh great, a Disney set I actually feel the need to track down.  ::)

Same here. I'm kind of impressed really that Disney would have something produced with original parts. Looks like I'll be hitting up some of the locals for some help.

It's odd that they reused a non Jedi body for that pre-teen Padawan. They could've just as easily use the EI Naboo Anakin or Zett Jackassa bodies as a base.

Nah!!  It's part of H's new scheme.  We've gotten stands, holos, coins, extra weapons, and Build A Droid.

NEW FOR 2009 THE B-A-P

Build
A
Padawan

That would be so awesome for doing a Jedi-Temple-Post-Anakin-Rampage diorama.



If only someone here went to Disney twice a year and offered EVERY time to grab exclusives for folks. ::)

One for me please.   :-*

I wish Matt could be temporarily "re-inlisted" for help on this set.   :D

Aww man, a Disney exclusive?!?!?!  Disney makes getting the WalMart exclusives look like it's a walk in the park.

Excellent point Nick.

And I thought getting that Cantina Band from Disney 2 years ago was painful. This just outright SUCKS!!!!

Sadly, I want the Jedi and Younglings.  Perhaps we can work out a deal Jman, since you need that Vader...  It's a win-win all around.

Perhaps I need to lay the sarcasm on a little thicker.   ;)

Or perhaps I need to, instead.  ;)

I want two of these sets. Damn. Well, I hope my buddy in FL can hook me up!

At least with those you got a functional base that lit up and played (with pretty good quality) a portion of the cantina band's song.

I really don't understand why they went with the Slave Anakin body either, they could have just as easily gone with the Padawan Anakin from the end of TPM. I've always wondered why they didn't use that mold again for a padawan. Perhaps it's one of those situations where Hasbro would claim that the tooling is no longer available.

Oh well...

Even though I'm going to get one, I gotta say it - this set SUCKS.

I'm psyched by the "three generic Padawans". That's great marketing skill right there... they should have come up with cool names like Nwolc eht Ozob, Rekcepdoow Ydoow, and Retsnum Namreh.

At least there isn't a unique Imperial in this set, I'd hate to watch Ryan writhe in agony over that predicament.

Well, some eBay seller in FL will be getting my business. I really liked the Cantina bases this is a decent exclusive. Good point about the slave Anakin Body vs the Jedi version. That should be a question in the next Q&A, I would be curious to read their answer.

This set is a pass for me... if it were more than kit bash/repainted bodies, I'd be interested.  But these really don't do much for me.
