Revenge of the Sith / Re: RotS - Collection 1 Figures

Oh yeah, these new Coll. 1 figures still look pretty nice, despite their super dooper missle launchers they come with...  :P

I'll just pretend the destroyer droid had aftermarket modifications for those big ass arm cannons. ;)

I didn't see this posted anywhere but did anyone notice that Tarrful has an action feature too? You can twist his torso to one side and it will swing back to the center - almost like a club swinging action feature. Since he comes with the club, it makes sense.

Perhaps I'm just dense and didn't read/hear about this before, but I thought this was a nice little surprise to the figure.

All I would have changed on this figure was to make his knee joints bend as opposed to just rotate.

I noticed that too, even though it isn't on the package and I hadn't read about it anywhere prior to buying it. And I agree about the knees. Not much point to them if they don't bend.

I like the stylized anime-esque look of these toys.

Vader looks great; I want him.

I'm not really a fan of Grievous, however I have a severe dearth of Separatist figures (in all scales) so I may get this GG simply to balance the scale with my Republic armies.

Anakin looks pretty good. I may get him later on after higher-priority items.

Obi-Wan is all right but I don't like the facial expression and his hair is too bright orange.

Several of the later ones--Yoda, Chewie, Clone Trooper, Mace, Palpy--sound quite promising.

Awesome. Gotta love that Wookiee. I just hope this wave is shipped in sufficient quantities for everyone to get a few of each.

Of the first four, the only one that tempted me was Chewie because I have a thing for Wookiees. I never bought him since I had other toy priorities.

However, I am gonna get Rescue Glider Anakin, just because of the neat helmet & glider contraption and because he goes with my Clone Wars collection. Actually I was going to get him at Midnight Madness but I didn't see him, and besides I found the AT-RT which I wanted more anyway but wasn't expecting to see yet.

Undecided on Yoda w/ Stamp Stomper.

Mace fits with my prequel theme stuff so I might get him.

Anakin & Jedi Pod sounds promising but I haven't seen any pics yet.

Likely I will get the Chewie with Flyer because I like Wookiees and it sounds like it's from ROTS.

In November 2003 I attended a Jim Luceno signing and at a local convention this March I got some stuff signed by Tim Zahn.

Did you see the full list of stops here? There's one in Novi, MI. I have no idea how that relates to your specific location, so my apologies if I'm completely off base.

I saw labelled pegs at Target, so I'm assuming they sold them on the pegs. Sold out, of course, but its okay since I didn't want one anyway.

Ditto here.

Saw (but didn't buy) Mace & Palps and Ani & Dooku today. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by the Palps. I'll definitely be getting this one. I only glanced at the other set, but I think it's worth a second look since the rest of the Anakins all look kinda funky in one way or another.

That would kick ass. :)

So far $31.91 ($14.99 AT-RT, $9.99 Holo Yoda, $4.99 Quickdraw Clone, plus tax).

Then $15.94 of 2002 Saga that I happened upon.

Anybody else get lucky?
Yeah I did and so did 4 others in MN :)

That's me. ;) Yep I got my Holo Yoda ... there were only twelve and I was fifth in the line (at least originally). Neener neener to all the rest of you that missed out. :P Sorry for rubbing it in, it's just that this is the first time I've scored anything that could be considered a rare exclusive. Of course it'll only be rare for a week but that's beside the point. ;)

I'll get the clone set. Pass on Grievous. Haven't decided on Obi-Wan.

I like the AT-RT, although I haven't bothered with the walking feature yet.
