good topic.

i'm not sad to see it go. not because i thought it was bad, but because we got a lot of new stuff coming. i'll be sad in about 2006 or '07 when the product does come to an end. hasbro has the rights to 2010, but i don't think it will go on that long.:(

I bought less than half of the figures on sith_killer_99's list, and I have to agree that for the most part it was a quality line. There were many that I admired on the pegs, even though I didn't purchase them. I concur, there were some poor ones but that's occurred in every Hasbro line so far. :D

except for the rehashed maul, anakin and farmer qui-gon, i think this line was very solid, untill that zam wiesel fig came out. that is, in my opinion, the worst star wars figure EVER made. flimsy plastic hands can't hold her flimsy plastic gun.
