I like them. Except Luke.  ::)
Those Ewoks are awesome. I know someone that will go nuts over them.  ;)
I never got the Biker Scout w/Speeder Bike so I am hyped up about him.
Yoda looks cool, though it does look like there making the large figures like the 3 3/4 scale with the accessories. First time I have seen a 12" figure with the Force lightning effect.

I think they all look great, but there's something that just doesn't look right.  Look closely at Yoda's cane.  It doesn't look anything like the cane he uses in any of the movies.

....I'm definately gonna pick up them Ewoks.... woah! Logray doesn't really look like Logray, and that can't be Teebo, as suggested on our main page, because Teebo has white stripes, wears a pig-head, and has a bundle of feathers to top. Either way, Ewoks are Ewoks....

These will be the first 12's in my collection.

Chris must have added the Teebo thing cause I don't think that is him either

Scott, you may have to speak with our baggy sweatered friend about that edit. ;)

Oh dear, you gonna start up on "my sweater" now too boss?!   ;D

Yeah, my bad!   :-\   Still may turn out to be a Teebo and it's only in it's early stages right now, or maybe not.  Let's just call him John for now, how'd that be?   :)

Chris, that's because all of the Yoda pictures you have there are from the Original Trilogy (except that "missing" one  ;D  :P).  This new 12" Yoda is based on the character's appearance in AOTC, and if you watch carefully, you'll see that the cane that he uses in this movie is accurate to the one that Hasbro has created for this 12" figure here.  Evidently Yoda got himself a new cane sometime between Ep. 2 and Ep. 5...  Not surprising, as I'd imagine those things would wear down fairly quickly.   ;)

Just got all five today.  SWEET!!!

Yoda comes with the belt, necklace, cane, viewing mirror, lightning bolts, green saber and the chair.
His white, cotton hair is hard to see from the front and with the two I got (bought a case from EE) one has a little more than the other.


The Biker Scout just has his pistol and has almost the same articulation as the speeder bike one.
Hands are in a different position (as in the fingers are spread out on the new one).  Higher boots also as well as a shorter neck.  I have comparison shots in the link below.

Luke's new face sculpt isn't the greatest (still has the "mole" on the cheek).  Accessories with this one are the green saber and handcuffs (which are useless as they don't go around both hands).  The button on the back is another annoying feature (how many kid's purchase these dolls and play with them?? ) and not needed IMO.

The ewoks are the best.  Of course, I like Ewoks so..there you go!
Anyways, they have no specific names on the box and both have the skull hats and bags attached.  There is also a necklace, knife, drumstick and a feathery walking stick.  Normal hip and shoulder articulation but nice face sculpts.  

I will be putting up pictures on my web page next (ICQ doesn't let me link photo's directly here) so just scroll down to the bottom of the link below.

Thanks for the pictures Beth!  I really want to get my hands on that Biker Scout, but they all look great (even the Ewoks!).  I love the new packaging too.

Hey Beth, do you happen to have saved the link to EE's website for that case?  I've been searching all over their site, and I can't find that case anywhere.  Thanks!
