Sounds like someone making you think he's working for Hasbro. Especially if he told you that Dooku had a background. Backgrounds were discontinued at figure 16, they never made one for Dooku.

Most of the info he gave you is info that most fans have known about for months, and alot of things he was vague or totally wrong about. Paul, sorry to tell you, but from what I read, that wasn't a Hasbro Employee. :)

Yeah, this doesn't sound too legit to me. On Yahoo chat I can be a teenage lesbian and make it sound real. I would suggest extreme scepticism.

The comments on the Bespin Luke were also wrong. A variation like the metal to plastic peg on that figure is a permenent, running production change. Once the plastic pegged versions start being produced, it means the magnet versions have stopped being made completely.

I'm afraid someone is definitely yanking your chain Paul, sorry about that.

Huh? What are you excited for, the guy never confirmed it. We don't even know if he's legit.
:)

No worries Paul, even if the guy is a fraud, he's at least more creative in his answers than Hasbro's PR guys. ;)

They couldn't bother to put robes on my 12" Ani, so I could care less if they put a robe on a 3 3/4" Ani. Besides, I hate plastic capes for the most part, I'd much prefer a cloth cape. However if they make a cloth robed Ani anything like the Starpilot Obi, I wouldn't be interested anyway. ;)

It's sad that somebody would go to the trouble of actually pretending to be someone from Hasbro. Even down to mimmicking the company spiel. What is the point of that? To make someone feel big about themselves for duping a young lad and making a fool of him. People who do that sort of thing make me want to reach for the cricket bat and go BASHING HEADS!!!!!!! :crazed:


Damn instant messenger/chatroom crap........*mumble mutter grumble...*

They are heaps better then cloth.

Beast

Both Plastic and Cloth have their place in the line. Cloth for figures that need to be able to sit, or for figures with alot of articulation. But plastic cloaks and robes are fine for charecters that don't need that sort of articulation or don't need to sit. :)

I'm still very interested in seeing a robed Anakin. I guess part of that comes from the fact that the robed Naboo Qui Gonn and Obi Wan are still two of my favorite figures ever. If they put out an Anakin of that caliber, it'd be a real treat. :)

A cloth robe could also be done on Anakin a bit better than the one included with Obi Wan I think Ceasar. The robe Anakin wears is much more of a cloak, without any sort of sleeves. So they wouldn't have to alter the arms to make room for the material like the did with Obi Wan. The cloak would simply rest around his neck and cover his arms as well. :)

Nexu

Look, I'm not bagging on you. I stated that there are some users on here that are 14-15 years old, and I can tell that by their posting methods (spelling, sig lines, frequent changes in sigs and avatars, spamming, complete disreguard of the "respect" of other forumites.) You are a prime example, but I didn't even mention you at all, and you came right foward.

No offense; I'm stating facts that many other people have known all along.

No team required, the guy is yanking your crank. His info is suspect, vague, and downright wrong in some cases. Any of the information that he gave you that is at all correct, has been pretty much known for quite a while from people on the forums. :)
