    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.

    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.

    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 :D
    Is it the screws at his lightsaber guard thing?

    I got my Jango Fett (Kamino Escape) figure on Sunday just before work. It's really cool. I also bought the Padmé figure as well, even thought I planned to only buy the Jango. Who can resist Padmé? ;)

    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. [face_plain]

    EDIT - Nevermind, you have to unscrew a screw, twist it, then unscrew 2 more screws.

    Fun stuff.

    Okay... *whew*

    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.

    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:

    Shaak Ti
    Boba Fett
    Jango Fett
    Geonosian Warrior
    Plo Koon
    Dexster Jettster
    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.

    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.
    Nikto
    Shaak Ti
    Saesee Tiin
    Plo Koon
    Dexter Jekkster
    Jar Jar Binks
    Obi-Wan Kenobi
    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)
    Postcard book
    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. :D

    And on Layaway (oh, how I love it):
    Jango Fett
    Boba Fett
    Super Battle Droid
    Anakin (Hangar Duel)
    Padme

    Purple lightsaber
    Lego kit with Yoda and Dooku figurines

    And perhaps one or two things I'm forgetting.

    There goes the rest of my Christmas money.. <:p

    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...
