I gotta say...
I nabbed the Palpatine figure tonight in the red robes with the extra head/hands, and I'm really not liking these sabers molded into the hands and all that.
I understand single-piece saber/hilts rather than the removable blades and all that jazz... I don't LIKE that, and I think the removable blades w/hilts were pretty cool, but this whole thing of Hasbro molding the saber TO the hand and making the hands removable sorta sucks. I only say that about Palpy here because he doesn't have a "normal" right hand really. Just the bony Evil hands.
I guess I think Hasbro can do better by making a saber (single-piece), and then just a hilt, rather than sabers stuck to hands. If kids are gonna lose the whole saber, so be it... I can bite on the issue of removable blades being fragile though... But no saber sorta sucks.
