The way I see it, Star Wars is a phenomenon, and I'm looking forward to enjoying the whole thing!

Good call Lando...

If I had to choose one over the other at this point, it would be the figures/toys.  Mainly because such a big part of my life revolves around the toys, as I have an entire room dedicated to them, I customize a few figures each week, and go on several toy runs each week.

Not to say that I can't wait for the movie though... I think this will be by far the best prequel yet...

Both, I like to collect and display the toys and watch the movie a hundred times over. of course, if I bring anything else to work, they might just make me take it all home  ;D

I gotta say that I am looking so forward to the movie, but the toys definitely were not a letdown... if anything, I am overly surprised with the overall quality of the line so far.

It's a lot more fun to spend a lot of money on toys when they don't totally suck like the Saga launch.

I like the toys, but I'm looking forward to the movie more.

After all the army-building goodness CHEWIE, I dunno. :)

Honestly though, the toys are only here because of the films, so the film takes priority, but every toy run I keep hoping to find those higher numbered figures right now.  Never thought I'd be really looking thoroughly for SW figures in a movie year.

I'm not making special trips to just save my car/gas right now, but I'm looking when I am out anyway, and enjoying it.  Pick up the odd Clonetrooper at the same time, or Wookiee Warriors, and just hope I find the stuff I really am looking for in the meantime.

Clone #41 and the Deluxe Jetpack Clone....

I'm reading the book now and the Movie has promise, but the EPIII Clone Figures are definately winning that battle.

I agree the figures wouldn't be around without the films... but then again, the whole Star Wars experience wouldn't be what it is without the merchandising.   :)

I'm looking forward to both the movie and the toys. It's also cool to see the new clone troopers!  ;D

I'm reading the book right now and I have to say that I am totally looking forward to this movie. Even more so than I was looking forward to AOTC. I read the book for that before I saw that one as well.

I do still go on daily toy runs into stores going to and coming from work - still hoping to find figures #37 - #40! If I could just find those four figures twice over, I could really take a break for a while since I've found just about everything else that's been released.

It's a tough call between the two, I love to collect the SW figures, but I am looking forward to the movie also. If I had to choose it would probably be the toys, since that is what a bulk of my money will be spent on  :P.

But I'm still anticipating the movie.
