I rip mine open as soon as I buy them. Their just no fun in those packages.
I'm the type who can get carried away so Ive limited myself to just buying Jedi figures.... that includes Dooku.. any lightsaber weilding character is ok.
A hint for the string on Jango is to wrap it around his wrist. I havent tried the jet pack yet. I feel weird I'm 16 and I'm playing with Toys. Wait its ok they are "Action Figures" so its ok.
Good point, Communist. Thanks.
Don't feel bad...I'm 21. And, the people I saw ripping open boxes and running people over last night were well older than me.
Toys are so much fun! What a horrible world it would be without toys. I don't care how old I am.
I don't know about anyone else, but I feel cheated that Hasbro spoiled some important story points in AOTC. I'm especially mad with the way one certain figure has SPOILED!!! the film for me and so many others. I only bought three figures, and one of them just floored me upon opening it. I'm sure those of you that have seen this know what I'm talking about. Why couldn't Hasbro have waited on a few of these till after the film? Anyway, this is my first post. Hopefully I'll get more involved with the threads now that this is off my chest.
I know which figure and which spoiler you're speaking of... But it's something I already knew cause of jerks on other boards.
umm...damn I want to know which figure or at least who it is unless thats a spoiler too. I'm gonna go shopping for mine on the weekend I need to know when to close my eyes and what not to get yet!
Kloon, don't read any of the backs, they give the story away.
The Anakin Hanger Duel has a major spoiler. Do not read the back or look closely at/open the figure. Otherwise, it should be fine.
Where is the BATTERY PORT on Count Dooku's action lighsaber? Anybody?
If you look on the inside of the box insert it was attached to, it explains it.
It's where the screws are, and you take the blade part off.
I threw the box away at K-Mart
Is it the screws at his lightsaber guard thing?
No no, on the handle itself, above the black part.
I got my Jango Fett (Kamino Escape) figure on Sunday just before work. It's really cool. I also bought the PadmÃ© figure as well, even thought I planned to only buy the Jango. Who can resist PadmÃ©?
Anyway, our TRU didn't have Count Dooku, Yoda, Geonosis Warrior, Jekster Dekster(sp?) or the Anakin (Hanger Duel). Although, from what you guys say, I'm glad they don't have the Hanger Duel figure, so I'm not spoiled.
Sorry, I spoke too soon. After I just tried to get my lightsaber apart, I discovered you only have to twist it apart.
I can't get mine apart, though.
EDIT - Nevermind, you have to unscrew a screw, twist it, then unscrew 2 more screws.
Just got back from Wal-Mart on my SECOND scavenging run (my first was at midnight), and thus far, I have:
Anakin Skywalker (hangar duel)
Padme Amidala (arena escape)
Yoda (Jedi Master)
Jango Fett (Kamino Escape)
C-3PO (protocol droid)
R2-D2 (Coruscant sentry)
Tusken Raider (female with Tusken Child)
Luminara Unduli (Jedi Master)
Kit Fisto (Jedi Master)
Darth Tyranus (Deluxe; with Force Flipping Action)
Clonetrooper (sneak preview)
Not a bad collection for someone without a job. I mean that's what, 11 figures, all priced at $5.88? Not shabby, IMO. I'll probably mow some more yards tomorrow.
I got 17 figures. Slave I, Ani's Speeder, Reek, and the sabers. I also got the JediDex.
And some other stuff. but, I am still tired from it all and I can't think of what the other stuff is.
To answer the question at the top of this page, I opened all the figures I bought. I still kept the packaging around, though.
I made a mistake on the list of figures that I don't have. My dad did find Typho but not Dexster Jettster. Here is what he couldn't find again:
Female Tusken Raider
He did great considering he went to Walmart at 5 p.m. Alas he was unable to find the Tie Bomber and Crashed Snowspeeder though. I fear that I will have to pay scalper prices to get them which I will do. I'll probably just tell my Aunt to get me them for my birthday actually.
Yes I open all of my figures. I have only opened five figures, Slave 1, and the Jedi Starfighter though because the rest are birthday presents.
Super Battle Droid
I got the Republic Gunship LEGO. This thing is SWEET.
Super battle droid
Anakin..the breifcase one
Jango Fett..Kamino escape
Those are the only 8 figures Target had...and they had it all in full stock...damn..i gotta get sum others..i really need dooku and the hanger duel Anakin
as of now I have 2 obi wans, 1 padme, 1 Anakin (Hangar duel) and 2 Jango Fetts.
I opened 1 Obi wan, and 1 Jango Fett.
My current list:
Yoda(x2) - My favorite so far. This figure, to put it in "leet", 0wnz.
Geonosian Warrior (x2) I love this one as well.
Jar Jar Binks
Kit Fisto (This figure's nearly impossible to stand on it's own. After about an hour of fiddling with it I got it to stay put x.X)
Mace Windu (Deluxe)
Darth Tyranus (Deluxe) - the only figure I don't have with the others right now. He's clinging to the side of my fridge, guarding it from unwanted visitors. o.o;
Soundtrack, Yoda cover
Party Express Stickers
Jedi Training and Trials Quiz Book (although I will admit I bought it just for the nifty lightsaber pen)
a few of the 3D Star Pics from Cheetos and Doritos 3Ds (as of now, Anakin, Obi-Wan, Mace, and 3P0/R2)
and two boxes of Star Wars cereal. It's pretty good.
And on Layaway (oh, how I love it):
Super Battle Droid
Anakin (Hangar Duel)
Lego kit with Yoda and Dooku figurines
And perhaps one or two things I'm forgetting.
There goes the rest of my Christmas money.. <
There goes the rest of my Christmas money
Good laud, I should say so...
Have fun with it!
Personally, I was upset that they put such a major spoiler in the form of a picture on the back of the figures.
I believe it was on the back of either the Obi-Wan Kenobi or one of the Jedi action figures, where one of the 'collect these other figures' had a spoiler on it regarding a character that appears to have a role in this movie, despite claims to the contrary.
Stupid toys...you'd think I'd have learned my lesson with the whole "Qui-Gon's Noble End" track of the E1 soundtrack...
