Some of the sets that I want include Battle For Geonosis, Jedi T-6 Shuttle, and Mace Windu's Jedi Starfighter.

One of my favorite LEGO things was the neat little "horns" piece they had for Maul and Savage.  It snaps on the top of the mini-fig head to give them the horns - too cute!

I saw the same thing while doing some of the photos on Eeth Koth and it's what really prompted me to say how cute mini-figures are.   :-X  It's a shame you can't just buy mini-figs because they'd have me lock, stock, and (bent over a) barrel with that.  I can't afford whole kits to just get figures, and obviously they are sorta blocked on just figures, but money saved I guess.

Ki-Adi's conehead attachment too.  Freaky and funny and just really adorable.

When did Lego start using shorter legs for children and Wattos?  I LOVE it!

First time I saw the short legs was on Ewoks a while back...  They've been using them ever since but they don't move.  They're like a brick sort of.

I don't think I've opened any of my sets that include a Yoda, but quick google...

The first “short legs” for mini figures were introduced with the Yoda LEGO figure and the young Anakin Skywalker figure.  The Yoda Star Wars LEGO figure was also the first to have a molded head of a totally different shape and size from the standard LEGO figure heads.
