View Full Version : Does Dr. Seuss care about errors?

I couldn't help not to get all poetic because of the recent bombardment of error announcements. Please, feel free to continue my venting prose. . .

No tape, one tape, two tape more
Boba Fett's blue, not black, visor

Missing handle for Yoda. And Dooku
No 'Try Me Feature' for that droid R2

Figure seventeen has errors galore
He's supposed to have dots, that total four

Another unpainted is Anakin's braid
Jango Fett's armor seems dulled and grayed

The list goes on. And on it does go
Thanks to the quality control of Hasbro ...

That is not right.

I LIKE IT!!!! :crazed:

============================
Some of the Padme's come with a mole.
Early Deluxe Windu's feet have no hole!

Most of the figures eyes do not match.
A Few R3-T7's come with an extra scratch!

A couple Luminara's say "Removable Cloak"
Some select Dexter's say he's got a pipe he can smoke...

All in all when the day is quite done...
If you rip open the boxes the figures are still fun!

Very nice guys! Thanks for the laugh,
Now I have to go and find Amanaman's staff.

The accessories are many,
It's getting hard to keep track
But somebody once mentioned Ziplock baggies,
So I bought a whole pack!

Now my Saga figures are complete,
They each have their own stuff.
As for the entire rest of the collection,
Putting it all back together is going to be rough.

Those are all great, but your doing it wrong,
the one hasbro needs to make, is the girl with the thong.

does anyone else think, ani should come with some chains,
hasbro would make them, if they had any brains.

I'll appologize in advance.I was really bored this morning.

ode to Hasbro
Paint on the Bo Sheks
Was applied with a splat,
Hasbro quality control,
you should hire my cat.

I like the new Padme',
I'm a red blooded male, ;)
Even though she's "enhanced"
and really too pale.

Young Anakin was first,
Boba's another cute lad,
But for sneak peak Jango,
his articulation is bad.

Jorj Sacul is George lucas,
backwards, we know it is so,
you can find one on ebay
for a massive amount of dough :mad:

Darth Maul,Darth Maul,
how many more?
No thank you Hasbro,
I'm already poor.

25th ann. chewie,
Just look at the fur!!
As for count dooku,
unobtainable cur!

I like the basic Yoda,
Dlx drives me insane,
As seen in the film,
there is no damn crane!!

The scale on Luke x-wing
is better!What Luck!!
to bad he has the teeth
of an ancient wood chuck!!

I have heard some say,
Toy fair Vader is all chrome,
He would have been better
with removable dome

Aleya Secura (sp?)
Now she's hardly bland!!
You've gotta agree guys,
BABES IN TOY LAND!!!

Dexter is massive!
but I have one small gripe,
A figure this awesome
should have come with his pipe!

I haven't found Palpatine,
What is up with those fingers??
And as for Luminara,
Her stench STILL lingers!

Hasbro Star Wars ;
"They'll buy it" wink,wink
At least they have spared us,
Clone troopers in pink.

Can't wait for Bespin Chewie,
but my love is low.
Why oh why Hasbro??
Why no cross bow??

Yellow clone,blue clone,
just plain white!
New mace and Padme'
we'll buy them alright!!

Taun We is a good sculpt,
But built like a twig
$5.88 at Walmart
is too much for this fig!

Ephont Mon is great!
We've all said it's true.
I just hope distribution,
doesn't leave most of us blue.

Geo. Mace and Qui Gon,
They both really suck!!
A big waste of fuel
for the delivery truck

Ships and vehicles
is what we all lack!
Please no more figures
with wheels in their back.

Exclusives are terrible!
They cause pain in my head.
Hasbro,please stop it,
or this line will be dead!!

Imperial shuttle at $125
makes me quite leary,
especialy without
At least one dignitary!!

Where's our sith infiltrator?
Figures accessory laiden
Now that I mention it,
where's the orange Hand maiden?


The tie bomber is great,
the snow speeder is lacking.
What's the deal with bloody Luke?
Why the short packing?

R5,R5
He's the droid select!!
But instead of him,
we get blast effect.

Paint varients,Paint varients,
is all we see!!
A screw up worth more?:crazed:
Is it just me?

Will we ever get Dooku's ship?
the one with solar sail?
With numbers so small,
It'll cause some to bail :rolleyes:

We paw through the figures,
like a Ronto in Heat,
If you touch my cart,
You'll surely get beat!! ;)


So if while in the toy aisle,
a big biker you see,
be sure to say hey,
it's probably me :)

What is it about Lucas' great saga
that makes all us collectors go gaga?

is it the characters, the story, or something more?
I wish I knew, because I'm not quite sure......

But to bring home a part of that tale,
will make us all happy, it does without fail......

but there are those who would see our hands empty
They're called scalpers, and they take without pity.....

Variations, shortpacks, exclusives too....
When a Scalper's around, the store's like a zoo......

to find the figures you want, usually takes patience and care
but if you don't find it first, don't pull out your hair!

just calm yourself down, don't put your collection in stasis
just get to know the stockboy on a first-name basis!

then when the cases are fresh, and new on the shelves
and the new figures are selling like bats out of hell.....

you can come right in, and watch the melee,
as your fresh picks from last night wait for you in layaway!!!

Too many variants, so I'm now annoyed
There's even two versions of the Super Battle Droid!

Padme and Anakin are clogging the pegs
Look on the bright side, the Royal Guard's got legs.

Everyone thought Jango would be the hot one,
But thanks to the previews, we had already bought one.

Anakin loved Padme for her beauty and charm,
But how sexy can she be with a giant hinge in her arm?

There's little doubt, the magnets were a blunder
So was making every figure a one pose wonder.

No soda or tacos or chicken this time,
But eat some more cereal and you'll feel just fine.

Cloud City Chewie looks like the best one yet,
He's a much cooler character than that damned Boba Fett!

here we go again ;)

Another request Hasbro,
Please get a clue!
One more Hoth Han,
this time in BLUE!!

Speaking of Hoth,
How bout a new Yehti?
And an open belly Taun Taun,
complete with spaghetti!!

I found Sifo Dyas,
Not meant to start trouble.
Sorry to say it guys,
It's an empty bubble!!;)

Little Boba's a clone,
Daddy Jango is dead,
but does he really look good,
with a bucket on his head?

Kamino Jango,
with no paint on a hose,
not the only thing missing,
helmet might take off his nose!!

Is it irritable Bowel,
With the sneak peek clone?
geonosian with Massiff,
That's a sweet little drone!!

Sio Bibble and holo Sideous,
I'm told they are rare.
Why the short packing,
of this figure pair?

Come July to my money
I will not cling!
While at T.R.U
to get Dagobah x wing!

The cape is to short,
on the new bespin Vader
This is getting real hard.
I'll try again lader:rolleyes:

Taun We is a beanpole, Orn Free is a glutton,
But cover your eyes when you push the Reek's button.

Four-armed Dexter really has no class,
That's why he hugs Obi-Wan while scratching his....:eek:

Okay, that's it for now.

HAHAHAH! omg thats like the funniest thing ive heard today! LOL!

oh hasbro, oh hasbro,
havent you learned?
sometimes i like the figures,
when they can be turned,

all those one pose wonders,
turned out to be blunders,

great job on the jedi's,
even the dead guys,
just remember this statement,
dont make the figures with pavement

ok, theres my two bits, hope it wasnt to bad
:rolleyes:

It's nice to have Jedi all molded in plastic,
Too bad all their poses are really quite spastic.

With a double-bladed saber, Maul was the man,
Too bad the Sith have such a crappy dental plan.

TM, no TM the carded collectors will find,
I'm glad I open them, so I don't really mind

You can find a Bloody Luke with a little bit of luck,
Just don't sell it on ebay to make a quick buck.

Clones are like Skittles, didn't you know?
Red, blue, green and yellow; so "taste the rainbow."

I'm running out of rhymes, so I'm wondering if
I'd get more ideas with a Mouse Droid to sniff.:D

Now you know the reason why I post.
to show all the world Hasbro Kwality Kontrol is a joke.

With all these pictures, I'm glad I could inspire
You might find your own errors if you perspire.

You'll take a scan and send it to me.
I'll file it with 100s of others to post it someday for the world to see.
