i had my deluxe ani with geo out and playing with it and blasting the geo guy to pices. i pushed ani's button on the back just now and his waist fell apart! It flew off of his chest! glad i just got it today and still have the box and recet. i'll take it back and get another and hopefully the same won't happen....maybe i'll just get the nexu...

tee hee.... :(
not very funny

I didn't like that Anakin anyway. The Geonosian was the only good part of that 2-pack IMHO. By all means, get the Nexu. It's the best of the deluxe figures. :)

Deluxe Anakin- exploding waist variant! Quick, put it on eBay!:D

Didn't they sell a repainted red-to-yellow clonetrooper on Ebay for some outrageous price?

Exploding waist variant... That one made me laugh. All joking aside, I think you should definitely get the Nexu. Its a great figure, consider it.

Yeah, that reeeeally does suck. Mine didn't even do that. :p I hate this Anakin though, he's got big ol' black brows. Sheesh. But that is one of the craziest ways to break a toy. Press the button that your supposed to and *zing* there goes his torso...hmm...that's actually funny now...:) ;)

Yes. I think that belongs on a Darth Maul! :p

07-09-2002, 09:55 AM
I was thinking he was an Anakin/Super Battle Droid hybrid of some sort!

I thought the "exploding pants" variant was packed with a Padme? Sounds like a packaging error, not a true variant. ;)

That was a custom and they said it was a custom too, but people buy them because they're too lazy to learn to make them themselves.

That's pretty darn pathetic if you ask me.

Of course it is, but this is Ebay we're talking about here. Since when do these people ever make sense.;)
For example, here is an auction from a, well, lets call him a "less-than-informed" seller.:D


Sorry to hear about your Anakin Hango. Mince fell apart out of the box also, but in a different way. His arms simply fall off every time I touch him, much less use that little slashing feature; then they FLY off. It's a useless figure except for the nice Geonosian that's pack with him. (well, and the lightsabers. I can ALWAYS use extra lightsabers:D)

LOL!!!! He's trying to sell a bloody-stump Luke!!! :D

07-09-2002, 02:13 PM
Gee, I wonder why it got no bids?

07-09-2002, 02:29 PM
I saw eight or so of them at Wal-mart.

07-09-2002, 03:03 PM
Yeah that sucks, my Orn's Arm fell off as soon as I took him otta the card.

sorry to hear about your figure :(

On the mention of bloody stump Luke. Although somewhat abundant.. having 5 myself.. he is rather rare so to speak. A lot of people do not have it, nor have they seen it.

A convention a few months back in Michigan, there was a guy selling the bloody stumps for $75/each :eek:
Only paid $4.77 each for mine :p
