    They made mainstream toystores over here, like TRU. Is it the same back home, or did they only end up in specialty outlets? Maybe there hasn't been enough time for them to end up at Kmart and the like yet.

    I don't know how the figure it out over here, there are main stream stores, but that doesn't seem to mean anything.

    At least McFarlane has some competition now with some other high-end figure makers. Has anyone seen any of the Art Asylum stuff?
    Wether you like Star Trek or not the new figures are amazing.

    Why can't we get Star Wars stuff like that?

    I kinda like the fact that the SW figs are smaller, at least. Imagine how much space our collections would take up if they were six or eight inches!

    There are some great products out there though.

    Some of the Unleashed figures are good but some (like padme) look nothing like who they're supposed to be.

    No, he's right. Slave Leia has a leash! And she's unleashed all her inhibitions. Yowza!

    Luke should have looked a little more feminine too in that series. Inestead they rereleased He-Man.

    Well when they go so far that they no longer look female then I would say there is problem.
