Well balanced slave Leia, perhaps some fans need to see the final paint.

Han as in the 3 3/4 mission series, is the first 6 inches action figure which spots the knife cut on the chin
and blue eyes.

Mara is nice, need to see a close up of her face :)

Hope sellers donīt speculate with her price as they did with tvc Gamorrean guard.

For the pics  shown there is more improvement in Luke
from Yavin vs its tlc version, with a more detailed jacket
deco, than in the biker scout, which lacks some paint applications
to match the original tsc vintage biker scout.

han and chewie death star :

the han solo anh is the best of this line overall
his sculpt and painting is decent.

this figure is the first 3 3/4 blue eyes Han in HASBRO kenner history.
Also the first 3 3/4 Han which spots the knife cut on the chin.

Looks as the long seeked evolution of Han from vintage kenner articulation.

The chewie figure dimishes the improvements of this set, poor paint job.

I always thought this time that the new Dagobah training Luke would come
with a fabric removable jacket to fit the scene of "I canīt believe it:" (ESB)

Wish the new stormie and sandtrooper spot removable helmets and more detail for the armour than previous versions.

As I didnīt buy TLC yavin Luke I will buy black series one.

Biker scout perhaps depicts a different paint job; this figure seems to wear grey bands on his thighs.

Picked today TVC Wedge Antilles  VC 28


AT 12 DOLLARS  OR  30 soles

I highly recommend it!

thanks for watching Scockery :)

Yes this Prune Face in Jabbaīs palace reminds me

Kenner illustrated the box of vintage Millennium Falcon for ROTJ
with a desert scenario and backround characters like Prune Face and Nien Nunb.

In some old webs I remember some fans brought behind the scenes photos and
cut photos of a sulustan pilot in Tatooine, but I havenīt seen the photo of Orrimaarko
yet from the filming.

Best wishes.

I watched this chapter and liked it

good fight between Anakin and Barriss,
the later is close to a dark jedi, rather than sith.

She wants to change the methods of the order,
but she does not want peace, she pledges to violence
as she stated is the only way Jedi understand reality.

About the bouts Anakin vs Ventress and later vs Offee,

Skywalker proved he has a strong chin.

He took a side kick in the chin from Assajj (or a hook kick?)
and then a jumping twisting roundhouse in the jaws, by Barriss.

Hope in season 6, if he has to fight Maul, he could be more aware of
high kicks or at least return his foe one on the face.

I will want to resume all spoilers

Tarkin demanded death penalty from beginning

Palpatine looks serious but cold, nobody suspects of him, coz he lets Tarkin speaks the prosecution, while Padme speaks the defense.

Jedi donīt show support to Ashoka.... this demonstrates at this point for them is more important to keep their relationship with the Senate.

Anakin doesnīt speak in the trial of the senate, only in the jedi council.... TCW mantains him as a man of action rather than a negotiator or a lawyer, in ultimate case,  this role is up to his wife Padme Amidala.

As the most outstanding Jedi are capable of love (Anakin loves his wife and has appreciation for his padawan, Obi Wan loved in a courtoise way Satine, without material cosumption of Eros), the Sith are presented the most tanatical as possible.

I think one of the reasons for Maul to kill Satine Kryze was his incapability for Eros, let me explain.

Maul lost his lower section: pelvis and legs, he wont be capable to reproduce, maybe he is able to eliminate natural wastes from a dispositive like a manhole. Maul wonīt be able for pleasure never.

So Maul, from a certain point of view was jealous of the love which was opening a door for Obi Wan, he envied what made his Nemesis complete while made him look more mutilated in contrast.

I think we could recall that Sidious didnīt have a lover, and that could be coherent, because he is no tied to familiy, children, he never exposes weakneses to his foes neither to his allies (who could be tempted to betrail him too).

But Love and pleasure is another motivation of Power, a natural need too. A king or an emperor would contemplate it in his life, because it would be so hard to be deprived permanently from those satisfactions.
