They are 5-point articulation figures that Hasbro said were made mainly for foreign markets (South America, etc.). IIRC, the Clone's gun is molded to his hand.

I thought someone MIGHT be interested in them as sort of a PT complement to the GG Jumbo figures, but that's stretching even my vivid imagination.

So Canadia is now an emerging market sales territory?  Who knew?!?!?!

So I saw these here in the Twin Cities (at Target, $12.99).  Man, are they horrible. 

Terrible paint jobs on Anakin's head, lack of any kind of detail in the sculpt (almost looks like they were sculpted at a smaller 4" size and then tooled up to 12" size).  Blech.  I wasn't planning on buying them anyway, but after seeing them in person I couldn't believe how cheap they looked.

These are intended for kids right?  I don't want to hear the "Collectors aren't supporting the line" shtick when none of these sell.

But.  But.  Collectors are supposed to buy everything with the Star Wars logo on it.  If not, you haven't been properly brainwashed... perhaps we'll have to release a new movie to rectify that.

Love,

Saw them at a Meijer store today. Didn't realize from photos that they had open packaging. You can rub your dirty hands all over them.   >:D

Sad, but it's a testament that they're priced as they are despite the size...  Screams they were cheap to manufacture and might make someone think, "Wow you get a lot for only a little more"...  a kid/parent anyway.

Damn, that's an abomination. Looks like a Korean knock-off.

I like that these got reviewed.
