Yes, it's true! One of Ratts Tyrell's family members is holding toys of Ratts' and Sebulba's podracers in a new scene in the upcoming Ep 1 DVD! Since the kid is smaller than the already-dinky Ratts, that would make the toys she's holding Action Fleet-scale!!!

I would put this along the same lines as Luke playing with a Skyhopper model in ANH, that or the end of civilization as we know it.:D

Am I the only one who notices that the added CG looks like it came from a Playstation?

Parents letting their kids play with collectible items!? Wha-? What a stupid alien! Those things will be worth a ton someday, but only if they're kept MIMB.

Anakin's toys on his bed
Jabba playing "Flick the Food" at pod race
Chewie and R2 with chess board

Wasn't that a Naboo Starfighter prototype on his bed?

I have no clue... but it sure looks like something they MIGHT have designed for the film!

it might have been something that the designers made but was never created as something on screen so they just through it into The Phantom Menace

In another thread I refer to almost the entire Pod Race cast as Tekno Muppets. I honestly thought, upon first seeing the Pod Race on the big screen (5 times on opening day, mind you) that the Pod Pilots were just cheap, rubber hand puppets! I couldn't believe it when I found out they were CGI! You have that kind of capability and you make lousy hand puppet looking creations that actually look worse than the puppets used in that lousy Land of the Lost revival series in the 90's! Boy, when the technology gets cheap enough, look out Lucas!
