I finally figured out a practical use for those "electro effects" that lots of the Saga figs come with. See attached pic.

:D

*lol* Hey, that's not bad, actually. Found any uses for the weird Force effects some of the Jedi come with?

That was a pretty good Darth you have there. Pretty cool.

That's the POTJ Emperor's Wrath Vader :) Technically Vader shouldn't already be "electrified" but I don't have another Vader fig with a removable hand :P

Jaina Solo, the only thing that comes to mind offhand is if the Jedi decided to have a food fight with a bunch of neon colored Jello ;)

I was wondering why they made those, I did not see any Jedi that used those in the movie.

That looked real good. Much better than the use which I found for them......filling up my trash can.

Great idea, but didn't they already do an Emporer with "Force Effect" Sith Lightning?

Actually they've made three emporers w/ force lightning. First was the FX one. Then there was the one with the coin, it was basically the same as the FX, but without electronics and different lightning FX. And hopefully the last one was the one on it's own card, it had the best sculpt of the three and the best lightning FX.

Yup, I was pretty sure they had already done at least a couple. However, I own exactly none of them. :)

I'm loving those electro-effects.

Plenty of use for all my GIJoe underwater figures... they use electrified pikes and such... they may suck as force FX, but the rule as other things...

Anyone not want em, I'll be happy to take them...
How many figures have those blue electro effects anyway besides Dexter, Geonosian Warrior, Battle Droid, Royal Guard and Jar Jar?

I put the Royal Guard effects on my Dooku figure. Pretty cool... better than on the Royal Guard!

Yeah, great fig. I've heard a few people on the forum call him "lackluster" for some reason. Pfftt. They obviously have no idea what they're talking about.

I heard that. ;)

Compared to the new Saga Bespin Vader, the previous POTJ Vaders come up...short. Including EW Vader.

I love the Emporers Wrath Vader. Very good figure IMO.

I don't have EW Vader, sigh. I don't like the Force Effect accessories much, but as long as they're removable, I can tolerate them.

You can still order him from lots of online stores for not much more than he sold for at retail. :)
