I have yet to see the movie, so the name is spoiler IMO.   ;)

Go see it already! You know you want to.

I'm just waiting for the DVD at this point.   ;)

It's call B'Omarr Monestary Assault except there is not one B'Omarr monk in the package. Why couldn't they just call this "Flying Stap Attack"?

Have you seen the movie? I think it's name appropriately.  ;)

I completely refuse to see the movie. I will not give in to Lucas's pale attempt at milking us for more money.

Good for you Paul. I think you made a wise decision.

I found this pack at a local WM this weekend, and decided to pick it up.  I know we always say it, but why didn't Hasbro just release this Anakin in the first place?  Its got articulation in the legs, and is closer to an "ultimate" toon Anakin than the previous version.  Of course, then they couldn't sell us this new battle pack as easily :P.  I'm sure we'll see an improved version of the Obi-Wan around the corner now as well.

Agreed - this is the Anakin we SHOULD have gotten back in July. No reason NOT to have the figure sporting articulated knees from the get-go.

In fact, I would have bought more than one of the first release Anakin just so I would have an Anakin that I could put into the new Yellow JSF. Now I'll just wait for the Monestary set figure to show up on a card or packed into another vehicle. Personally, I wish this was the version of Anakin coming in the Target UBP.

I wish they have given this treatment to the Obi-Wan figure that came in the Target set. Heck, all you need to do is give him the Clone Trooper legs and add a cloth skirt and you're done. It shouldn't be that hard really.
