Thanks to JuvyD (Jim) I have my 12" biker scout. Woot! Call me one happy camper and insert happy dancing icon here __________
after all that looking, and searching, and waiting - is he worth it (my answer is yes)?
quite possibly the best 12" figure hasbro has done so far, at least imo. although the one that came with the bike is a little better me things.
Also got my Yoda 5" figure from him. It is very well done, but I can't help but feel that maybe it's a bit of a rip off on Hasbro's part. Oh sure, the chair is there with some other cool accessories, but with the Jawas and the Ewoks, there were two figures at least. I guess they think the chair makes up for it
i felt the same way. i broke down and ordered one from brian's toys for $30 (which i didin't think was actually too bad, considering what i had seen them going for on ebay), not to mention that i picked up a bunch of other 12" figs i needed that they had on clearance for $12 each. but when the box came, i opened it up and felt a little short changed. and let's go into the "articulation" on yoda, if you want to call it that. not sure if you open 12" or not, but i open all of mine. and the articulation on yoda flat out sucks. i mean, i guess it's kinda keeping in line with the articulation on the entire 12" line - since they all suck. and the energy beam that he comes with is very, uhhh.... limp and flimsy. if i place it in his hand pointing up, by the next morning it's pointing down and won't go back up (get your mind out of the gutter
) so i pretty much end up flipping it over every morning while i wait for my pc to boot up.
