I can't say I'm surprised, but still, it's surprising how little they seem to care now.   No effort whatsoever.  Sigh.

Great ideas Chewie.

TPM: Right on the money.  Padme Handmaiden.  A travesty.

AOTC: Obi Wan Robes / Mace Robes.  The hell?

ANH: A Ben Kenobi Robes that does not suck.  Seems once they 'liven up' the spirit one, this will be corrected.

ESB: A tie between Wedge / Luke Snowspeeder redos.

ROTJ: A Final Duel Jedi Luke that doesn't suck.

Pretty cool.  Nice to know next year sounds as well rounded as this one.  Wonder what the box sets will be next year... let the speculation begin!    ;D

Vader might be interesting, just from a carded point of view, and Luke is nice.  Is that IG-88 the SOTE one?  I can't tell.

Yeah, this Jedi Council set is probably the weakest effort I've ever seen from Hasbro, and that's saying something.  I'm really disappointed with it.

Folks may want to check their Sunday papers today for the Walgreens ad for ROTK.  They have two coupons for $5 off each that can be used.  One is in conjunction with the batteries again.  It doesn't say what the price will be before hand, but it's definitely worth checking out.

Also, I'm a subscriber to EW and recieved the Best Buy Special Edition in the mail yesterday.  It's very nice, nothing reused from anywhere else.

I hope he doesn't have removable limbs, because then I'll have to buy him.  As such, I think they would have mentioned it by now, but you never know.

I still don't like Stay Puft Marshmallow Obi.  Give me a 'live' version of that new spirit one and I'm set.  The Leia is very nice, though.  

Yeah, Grievous is the Maul/Jango of EP3.  Hopefully they'll make one decent version of him, and I'll stick to that.  The list of Sneak Preview figs sounds good.  The Wookie Warrior is the one I think everyone (including me) will want most.  

I do hope they are shipped a bit better than last time, though.  I only saw the EP2 Preview figs once at retail, and that was on 4/23.

The only thing that sucks about these is that Spirit Obi Wan is one per case and I haven't found a single SW fig packed out that way this year.  Sigh.  Other than that, they look great.

If Luke doesn't come with both sets of extremities, I'll be very upset, but it sounds to me he does.  I like him, even if he looks like Mick Jagger.   :)

I also would leave the cards the way they are.  My main concern forward would just be articulation.  No stands, no gimmicks, nothing but standard articulation on every figure.  Lots of it.  And finally, a carded Wedge.  Oh, and Dorme.  And Swimming Obi Wan.  And...

The Bullpen / Marvel Legends

The worst thing about the X-Men set was that Rogue looks like Lauren Bacall.   ???  Glad to see this year's sets are more adventurous.

I'm one of those collectors on the proverbial fence.  I've been a SW fan since I saw it at the Skylark drive in in 1977, and the toys since day one, but as far as the collecting goes, I'm pretty burnt out.  This OTC thing in a way is perfect for me because it will give me the time I need to recharge my batteries and let me see whether or not I still have the same enthusiasm I once did.

Beyond the new OTC figs, I am buying nothing more SW this year.  I'm glad the long awaited Sandcrawler got picked up, but at $60, it's beyond my means and desire.

I wonder if Hasbro is certain all the fans who take a big nap this fall will come back for EP3 next year.  Hmm.

Oh, the money I'll save!   ;D

And just "Jawa?"  Just one?  Sigh.

I wonder what Jawas they will use.  One should be the Ronto version, I always liked him.
