That Han 'photo' is horrible!   ;D  Good lord.  Looks like an Onion picture or something.

Figs look fantastic, though.  Can't wait for Lando, probably my favorite so far this year, after Jedi Luke.

Yeah.  A big 'oh, well' for me.  I suppose Eeth is interesting because he can be an Arena version, what's his name?  Otherwise, blah.

I got my Dark Witch Willow from Cinequest a couple days ago.  Very nice, which is good considering how much they charged me.

I'd pre-order but since there are so many repacks in there I'll just find them in the stores.

Yeah, this doesn't interest me in the slightest.  The silver thing doesn't really do it for me, anyway.

Early bird set 1978, baby!   ;D

I'm not even going to hope or dream because I think these will be nothing but repacks.  Of course I'll jump for joy if we end up getting Kittik and company, but I'm not holding my breath.

These look fantastic.  Definitely the CCP is one of the best of the line.  I love the removable helmet.  

I did, yeah.  They weren't up yet the last time I checked.

I think you guys hit it pretty much on the head: character.

There isn't any.  The OT characters were stock archetypes but what made them enjoyable as opposed to their counterparts in the PT is any sense of dimension.  Part of it is the writing, part the direction.  If Lucas had invested half - just half - the energy he spends on effects into making these characters come alive, these films would rival the LOTR trilogy.

Found TW Frodo at K-Mart!   ;D  $7,99!   :(

Not as exciting seeing how there's a dozen of him in the Ringbearers set at TRU, but still kind of cool nonetheless.

This is a good idea.  I pre-ordered them from Newforce, but never saw them in stores.  And Obi Wan is certainly one of the best of the entire PT line.

This year I'm cutting way back, so I'm collecting only:

I'm buying a couple figures here and there of:

Marvel Legends
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Batman: Hush

I'm truly excited.  I said it before and I'll say it again: We gotta get up there!   ;D

Ok, mosnab, here's my thoughts.   :)

Boromir/Aragorn/Gandalf the Grey: I'd wait and see about the SP ones.  The Boromir is fantastic.

Frodo/Sam: Wait for the SP ones.  The Orc disguise versions are also some of the best.

Merry/Pippin: The armored versions are the way to go.

Gimli: The coronation version is sweet, but the Gimli shipping now in the Trilogy line is the most basic version, and very good.

Legolas: The Rohan Armor is the best; a close second is the ROTK one shipping now sans armor.

Gandalf the White: The Trilogy version is good, as is the ROTK one if you can find it; for this and perhaps also Pellenor Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli, there's the Gates of Mordor set shipping later this year w/ the Mouth of Sauron that may be up your alley.
