    There already was a Yoda back in the days of the Action Collection, but he wasn't no more than 5 inches.

    I've collected Star Wars action figures for 20 years,i have hundreds of them,but i until this past weekend i never had a 12" figure.

    Friday i found the first 12" figures that have been so cool that i had to buy them.They were Mace Windu and the Red and Yellow Clonetroopers.

    They are brilliant.

    The helmet,face,uniform,tunic gun and lightsaber are super cool.Im so pleased with them that if Hasbro produce more 12"figures of these characters quality,then i might switch to 12" figures for the next film and stop collecting the 3 3/4" figures.

    Well done Hasbro,Mace and the Clonetroopers are brilliant :) !!!

    I don't really like the present 12" line
    except for Jango, the rest just look weird heads to big or something.

    I've only bought a few in the past mainly Imperials and Bounty Hunters, being helmeted or droids. with the exception of the Emperor/guard 2 pack.

    Has anyone dared to customise Jango Yet?
    Like put him on a taller body so he's the right height and so his helmet sits right.

    I just found the newest wave of Episode 2 12" figures at Target last night. The kids were going crazy over the Super Battle Droid. It actually looks better in person. I might pick him up. Also Count Dooku looks good but a little short. Guess he has the new body and a much smaller head than Anakin. I ended up only buying Zam Wessel. She's a decent figure. Not great because her arms are way too small and skinny but pose her with the gun and rifle and she fits in with the rest of my collection. All in all, a decent set of figures. Althought I wish there was some consistency in the sizes of the bodies and heads.

    I have almost all of the 12" figs from the Action and Collector series but I especially look forward to Dengar and Zuckuss so I can complete my Bounty Hunter set. :)

    Still there is no 12inch Count Dooku or Zam at My Wal-Mart. :( I'm kinda getting dissappointed. My Anakin, Mace, Jango, and Obi-Wan don't look complete without those two. :(

    Amazon has had 12 inch Dooku in Stock recently.I ordered one myself! Does anyone know if Hasbro is going to make an AOTC Jedi Master Yoda with Lightsaber? That would be Cool! Maybe they could give him more articulation. Others mentioned Luminara & Mara Jade, I agree that would be EXCELLENT.Lastly, They should update the OT Boba Fett!I missed the Action Coll. & Electronic ones and I can't find any lower than $75!!!$^#^%&#*%!!The Marmit version puts both to SHAME, but that goes for $150 and up!!Too bad.

    I just a couple of 12" CloneTroopers which were (prolly mistakenly) on sale at KB for $9.99 a piece. :cool:

    The CloneTrooper is my favorite Episode 2 character. No really. :D

    My list of 12-inch figures:

    Boba Fett ( first one from 1996? )
    Battle Droid
    Electronic Darth Maul
    Master of the Dark Lords two pack
    Jar Jar Binks
    Obi Wan Kenobi from AotC

    I think the new Obi Wan is really cool.
    It`s the best of the current 12-inch figures
    with the blue packages.
    Realscan only paid up on this one
    and Dooku and Jango.

    I have just started collecting the 12" figures. They are more expensive, so instead of trying to be a completionist like I am with the 3 3/4" figures, I am only buying ones I like.

    Also, some of them are pretty weird looking, and I am not going to buy those ones.

    As of now I have these:

    [li]C-3PO that came with the book[/li][li]Anakin Skywalker (old) that came with the book[/li][li]Ki-Adi-Mundi[/li][li]Zuckuss (I think this one is my favorite!)[/li][li]Dengar[/li][li]Deluxe Jango[/li][li]Count Dooku[/li]

    Some of these figures are very gorgeous, and most impressive. :p

    EDIT: Forgot to finish a sentence
