I saw the much anticipated Palm Talkers at TRU yesterday and I have to say that they didn't blow my hair back. In fact they were kindof stupid. What is the big deal with these things?

Yeah, they are definitely a waste of good plastic. I think the big deal is that the Japanese dig that style of toy and for some reason Hasbro thinks SW collectors will jump on the band wagon.

I think they should just focus their efforts into making the best figures/vehicles/accessories possible. That's what the majority of the SW consumers buy, not crud like this.

I am personally not into them, but i am sure some people will buy them. Me, no interest what so ever. :o

I haven't seen any in person yet, but I agree. They don't really do anything for me.

They are pretty lame. I haven't seen them in person either, but just look at them! I probably will buy all of them for my display, but I won't be thrilled about them!:p

I'll save my money for the new POTJ figures. I have no interest in the Palm-Talkers whatsoever.

I hope they warm the pegs,if it has the Star Wars logo on it,it will sell - Hasbro!

I saw a Boba Fett palm talker at TRU earlier this week. They kinda resemble bobble head dolls. But Hasbro has taken enough money from my pocket and I won't get sucked in on those silly little things.

I saw all of them at Frank-n-Scalper's last weekend. They would be cool for VERY small kids...but that is about it IMO.

My girlfirend can't wait to get her hands on these things. She thinks they're cute. I don't think they're too bad.

They looks pretty OK but costs a BOMB here to have. So, not gonna spent on them unless its on clearance. They may be good idea to place them around the PC at my office.

They are deformed and that is kinda strange. But I have no interest for them. The price is way out of my league.

Hey Darth Cruel,

How much were F&S selling them for? My guess would be about $25 and probably a little more on the ones that are short packed.

I think they're pretty dumb. But maybe the SW collectors who happen to collect bobble heads wil lbuy them.

call me dumb, but I will probably pick up the Artoo (once he's out) and Threepio for my office at work!
