I swore that 3 3/4" and the twelve inch, (plus ships / playsets) would be enough for me.

Today, at K-mart, I found a Jango / Boba Unleashed that was just painted perfectly awesome!

I had to buy it!

Crap. Here goes more money into Star Wars. Now I'll get a Darth Maul.

It's all the fault of Comic Con. I think Hasbro had a wonderful display of stuff there and the Unleashed may have been almost my favorite attraction.

I can't wait to get Anakin and Mace, two of my favorite ones!

I hear you Tycho! They are cool but unfortunately a little too much for my budget right now. The other day I was so close to getting Anakin and Padme... but I passed. Maybe I should've just splurged but oh well! :)

I am not a fan of the ones released so far. Although the Vader looks interesting. And perhaps Mace. But I didn't like Maul or Jango, or Anakin, or even Padme.

I couldnt afford those, well, not all at once anyway. I'm sticking to 3 3/4" figures, there are still so many of those I dont have yet. Oh, out of curiosity, what do the Unleasheds smell like? :D

I have the Jango/Boba and Maul so far. Still looking for the Vader and Anakin, and maybe Padme.

from the looks of the upcoming Mace and DooKu, I'm going to want all of these. ;)

Thank you for asking. This is very important. The Unleashed Figures have that new pvc plastic smell going, just like the 'old-new' Mouse Droid. However, Boba Fett's rain slicker is the most pungent of all that's included in the packaging. It is also a convenient size to wear over one's nose as demonstrated in the picture below (provided your nose is not too big).

I have no information on how long the scent lasts as of yet, but I've been wearing my rain jacket on my nose for 2 days now (except for times when I'm working or showering) and the scent is lasting quite well, thank you.)

You will note that the rain jacket ON the nose is much safer than the newest of new Mouse Droids IN THE NOSE. The MSE included with the Death Star Accessory Pack chafes if its wheels turn inside your nostril. It also stretches your nose out funny since it's larger than a regular mouse, and this may cause permanent damage to your physical appearance (see 2nd picture).

So all in all, in terms of new products, the Jango Fett Unleashed is a great pick-up (if you get a good paint job). I am very satisfied with mine and have been picking it up and admiring it frequently.

And note, the raincoat for your nose is also convenient for you to avoid any embarassing situations if you have a slight headcold during the hayfever season. You can have that fresh scent of PVC plastic, and a very rational explanation for why you are doing what you are doing, just in case anyone asks.

I think we need a poll to determine whether or not all this sniffing on Tycho's part qualifies as substance abuse. :p

Or just plain ol' abuse of his toys. Poor things, getting shoved into orifices they were never ever meant to.... :D

LOL!

Great photo! I love the way you show the mouse-scent wafting about your head!

I happen to have my ouse droid near the computer here, and it unfortunately no longer has any scent left. They need to make Plug-Ins of the mouse scent.

I've been looking at the Unleashed fig's/statues and the only 2 I've seen that look decent to me are Jango/Boba and Vader. As for me buying them, time will tell... Maybe when they go on clearnace...

Thank you for that information Tycho. I may experiment with one when I have the $. Strange that my POTF2 Tusken still has a very strong aroma...
