How many of you have children that play with the figures?
Who are their favorite characters?

My son, who is 4, loves Jango...that's his fav. He also likes to line up the figures and all of the lightsabers and guns.....very organized.

I keep a few of the figures in their packages and put them away, but I let him open most of them. I've kept the cards so I can figure out which accessories go with each figure.

When we play with our toy lightsabers, he's like Yoda....he wins a lot, cause he aims for my legs.....hard to block.

My mother plays with them, does that count?

I don't have kids, but I've seen a lot of them in the toy aisles lately. I love seeing them, and listening to them talk- and helping them find stuff. Kids are great; they're the only ones shorter than me.

My favorite kid so far was the one I saw with his dad at a Wal-Mart.

Dad: Don't you want this guy? He's got this cool eye-patch...
Kid: I want Anakin.
Dad: How about this guy? *pointing to Jango* I like this guy...
Kid: Anakin.

And then there was the little girl looking for Padme. "Cool, she comes with a GUN!" :)

I see kids in the Star Wars aisle all the time now. The coolest thing I remember was a kid about 5 or 6 tearing through the Dookus and Jangos and Anakins to find Yoda. When he did find him he jumped around gleefully saying, "After all this time, I finally got him!":cool:

He was probably only looking for him for a few days after seeing the movie, but I guess that is an eternity for a young kid.

I had a great experience yesterday. I found another Dooku (not the deluxe one) and there was a kid about 7-8 looking for him. (I overheard him mumbling to himself. I asked him who he was looking for. He said Dooku.
Corny as I could be I moved my left hand in front of him moving it toward the left further then from behind my back with my right hand I brought out the Dooku and pretended like I pulled it from behind him. I said "here ya' go"
He about screamed and his (I'm assuming mother) came around the corner in a flash. She asked him what was wrong and he said that the "the cool guy gave me his dooku." Parents being ever wary, she looked me up one side and down the other. I just smiled and as he ran off she turned and said thank you, with a look of "finally he can calm down".

I felt better then when I gave away another Dooku in a trivia contest at the premiere.

Well I have 2 kids of my own. Im just about 30 here. My oldest just turned 6 and has been a star wars nut since he was 3. He has over 100 figures that he plays with. His favorites tend to be Lukes, Obi Wans, Jango or Boba Fett. Mostly the heros. My other boy is just over 1 but the time hes 4 Episode 3 will be out and he will be hooked just like his brother and dad. Pain in the poocket book for sure, but worth the excitement my kids will get with every new figure they own. Hopefully they will pass this on to their kids.
