    We have had the "He-man Luke" in the past

    I think the new one should be called "Rat faced Luke" he looks so funny

    Bacta Tank is cool
    have not filled it with water yet
    Now just waiting for my amanaman and Leia

    Han ok

    Ok seems i maybe just talking to myself or nobody is interested,

    Got FX-7, imperial officer, rebel trooper recently from aussie sorry when will k mart get them

    FX-7 is preety cool just have to put him next to luke and the bacta tank now.

    The way they have done the rebel trooper legs is interesting but my questions are
    1) why no movement in the arms
    2) why is the gun so small and so soft a holster would have been nice too

    Imperial officer is cool

    when are they going to stop using that soft plastic for the guns/accessoires Amanaman staff is very floppy

    anybody else got these figures yet?
    what are your thoughts?

    Already reading starwars.com this morning and they mention the up coming ewok TEEBO figure which looks cool. Now he is famous for his axe (hatchet)
    they even say "Teebo was the hatchet-wielding warrior whom Artoo-Detoo zapped with an electroshock prod in the Ewok village sequence"

    so why does hasbro have hime with a spear?????

    does hasbro have hime with a spear?????

    No US toys ship with sharp blades (real or simulated) since the recent hijacking of aeroplanes with stanley-knives.

    rebel trooper arms: he is pose specific he was made for that pose

    size of accesorys they r to scale now which is good

    plastic for accesorys they cant make them the detailed they r and the size they r with anything else so they have to use that plastic and they r cheap

    I know that they are now so called to scale but imho the gun is still too small.

    i was expecting arms and holster similar to Han Solo bespin capture on the rebel trooper i think that allows for more poses

    I see starwars.com has some new pictures of AOTC figures up

    Yes JP a spear what were they thinking????
    I love the old axe on the vintage teebo

    as ive said before, all figures should have holsters!

    Articulation is a funny thing, some new figures have heaps of joints, whereas some are as poseable as the vintage figures.

    I guess having fewer joints although it reduces playability, it increases realism? or its just a way for hasbro to cut back on production costs.

    anyway I cant wait for the Amanaman. I've given up getting stuff from overseas, so hopefully they'll arrive here soon.

    Amanaman is cool

    Jabba's palace and catina scenes getting nicely filled up now

    Agree with the holsters idea

    been getting most of mine lately from overseas not to bad prices just hope the exchange rate goes up more

    so, now that theres new figures about (apparently, I've only seen one) what does everyone think? I saw the rebel fleet trooper, nothing special. and no force file?
    $20 for just a figure. I've also seen the deluxe Amanaman, now thats a nice figure, but I doubt we'll see it in stores.

    25th anniversary 2 packs should be out soon too.

    Saw the Vader & Ben 2 pack and the Han & Chewie 2 pack in the Newmarket Warehouse for $39.99 each. I assume that's what your talking about (I'm a bit ignorant re: new Action Figures).

    Nice figures, but I only buy Star Wars LEGO thesedays...

    got down to the warehouse today, there seemed to be a case of them out, 4x Vader and Obi Wan, 1x han and chewie, 1x luke and leia. surely the vader/OB1 set cant be so popular they have to put 4 in a case??

    I got the luke and leia set, the Han looks a bit funny. still nice boxes though.

    firstly: love the sig Chans :)

    and the reason for this post, seeing as this is the "figure discussion thread"

    CHANSPLACE HAS MANY MANY MANY FIGURES AND SW STUFF. The entire roof of his bedroom is covered in figures in boxed - drawing pins holding them up.

    MAW GAWD T'WAS AMAZING.

    his transformer colleccttion takes up no room what-so-ever. His transformer collection however is... hmmmmmm he had a few... [face_blush] MY BAD. Sowwy I was concentrating on the LOTR and SW stuff.

    I do have a transformer that Chans doesn't have though! hahaha

    I feel special! I'll take a few pics of it when im back up in the "big smoke" for easter.
