View Full Version : AOTC hits The Netherlands!!!

Check your local Bart Smit stores, i found 3 different figs for 10.99 Euro each at the one in de Kalverstraat in Amsterdam. They had Jango Fett Kamino Escape, Obi-Wan Coruscant Chase and Anakin Skywalker Outland Peasant Disguise. I picked up Jango and Obi-Wan. They also had the Jedi Starfighter, but it was 44.99!!! Ridiculous prices!!!
Still, i am a happy man!
Till i opened them and realized they are crap! No kidding. The figs are made of very rubbery plastic and are hard to stand up. They also have poopoo articulation and Obi's accessories are very poor for the money it cost me. His lightsaber seems rather small and, although it is nicely detailed, the blade warps very quickly. The Assassin droid doesn't even come with a stand! Cheap Hasbro!
Don't think i'll get more of them. Maybe a few, but i'm definately not buying more of these Playdoh-like figs.

I actually love Jango Fett KE
he looks pretty cool standing next to 300th Boba Fett and the Bulloch autograph on a widevision card behind them:D
and his articulation is pretty good either IMO
I even kinda like the grapling hook if you ask me...

I like him too, but balljoints in the shoulders and blast effects would have made him the best Jango fig ever. Btw, i have 3 figs now, how about you?

still only Jango but I haven't checked toysrus since a week or something like that
I don't need the first collection (except maybe fisto but I don't have that much at the moment and first want to buy the stuff I really want)
maybe I'll check my local stores in the next few days if they have some new figs in

Anakin isn't that bad btw, he's actually a very nice and well done figure. If you remove his poncho, you can see very fine weathering (read: sand) on his shirt. His accessories are also very nice, but too bad the magnet in his hand is a bit weak.

I know he isn't that bad but I only buy the figs I really want and need (for diorama purposes) and Ani peasent is nowhere on that list
and I'm sure a better Anakin will come soon (like tatooine Attack which is great) - I don't want to end up having 4 different Anakins like I have of Episode 1 Obi-Wans when I just need two for my two dioramas

I know what you mean and i feel the same. I only need 2 Anakins and the next one i'll get will either be deluxe, HD or Tatooine Anni. Will you be getting all the Jango Fett's? I already have Jango Kamino Escape and i'll probably only get the Preview or the Final Battle version now to sit in the new Slave I (dunno if i'll get it, maybe if it gets clearanced)
Btw, i just read on a site that the AOTC Speeders have been sighted at Bart Smit for the ridiculous price of 34.99 Euro. 19.99 would have been better. Ugh....it's like TPM again, another year-year and a half of seeing the same stuff on the shelves over and over again.
PS: please don't post spoilers in this topic!

with the spoiler thing do you mean I already gave you one? sorry if I have
I try to stay spoilerfree to as long as it's possible so everything I know is from the figs
I'll probably too get the preview version and final battle version too cause they just look cool

Nope, you haven't given away any spoilers yet. Just thought my questions would raise very spoiler sensitive material.
