    ...Anakin looks creepy...psychotic even...is that the point?

    ...Boba looks stupid...

    ...why is the end of one of Maul's blades dripping???

    it's not dripping, it's to show "light trail/residue" when a lightsaber is being spun or quickly waved.

    OK, yah...it's dripping. Maul had to kill another Markham MP to pave the way for you. The blood is still fresh.

    The Jango picture is worse...he's not even holding his guns.

    ...BLOOD?!?! But a lightsaber should cauterize a wound! (Which brings up the eternal mystery of why Ponda Baba's arm spilled blood onto the floor of the Mos Eisley cantina when Ben chopped it off!)

    Gee, there's just no explanation you'd take, is there?

    How's this...it's just cheaply made because the dude in China didn't care about how the tips of the lightsaber blade looked. Better?

    I'm quite aware of cauterization but since you said drip, I threw common sense out the window after my first explanation of the light residue affect.

    Anything to make your life a little less easier...

    Taiwan...China...it's all the same. Either way, the lightsabers are "dripping".

    Make my life uneasier, huh? You really DO sound like the Mayor of Markham.

    To answer your question Satur9, the unleashed figures have not been released in
    Canada as of yet. Jango & Maul are out in the US right and should be available out here in July. Of course places like Silver Snail will have US carded ones any day now.
    Anakin and Vader will be released later in the summer.

    Please see my toy thread for news in the
    upcoming days....

    Hey Kat, you also note that the arm of Ponda Baba is not the same as the one connected to his body in any previous shots (different hands!)

    And they are releasing a new Ponda with a section of the bar - and the now common Magnetic limb!

    *coughs* Ahem. Kat, I believe I may have an explanation. Due to the alien anatomy of Ponda it maybe possible that his body doesn't cauterize such as that of a human. hence why Luke's arm must've cauterized and he didn't gush blood while hanging from the bottom of cloud city for the few minutes he would've had.

    It could also be that Lucas included the blood and the burnt remains of Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru to avoid a "G" rating on the film.

    I'm pretty sure about that...though, I'm not certain. Not as fun a theory.

    I was at the Snail today and they had the new unleashed figures. I only saw Jango Fett and Darth Maul though.
    Not sure if they had any Anakin left or if it just wasn't stocked yet.

    I believe the price was $31.99.

    A bit too pricey for this collector!

    I also saw them at the Snail today, and I'd just like to point out that in the released figures, Maul's lightsaber is -NOT- dripping. The blades just go to a nice point and stop, even in the picture on the box. I guess we're not the only ones who thought that looked a little odd... :)

    (Yes - I did make a point of checking... ;) )

    Maul and Jango are the first 2 coming out.
    Anakin, Vader, and Padme will follow later
    this summer. Remember folks they will be cheaper when they come out in retail stores
    as tri logo cards but I must admit, If I lived close to the Silver Snail I would go and buy them right now !!!!
