    Exclamation Das Hipperium Spielt Verrückt

    I'd thought that Lucasfilm had lost its sense of humor. Then a friend from Austria gave me a candy egg (the ones with the toy inside), and I found the most whimsical Star Wars collectible yet...

    Happy Hippo Star Wars.

    The pictures say it all:

    I was fortunate enough to get Dark Laser first, the Hippo version of Darth Vader. These are about an inch tall, unarticulated, but Laser has a removeable (and sturdy) lightsaber. Great pose, very good paint application, and definately puts some fun back into collecting.

    I eagerly wish to obtain them all, and as such, these foreign gems get a 5 out of 5.

    Damn Lord T, those are pretty damn cool. I guess I'll have to keep an eye on Ebay to see if I can get some of them. The only disapointment is that there is no Jar Jar or Stormtrooper.

    They look really really cute and cool... When I first saw it, I was like... What?!?!? More lame gimmicks, but after I took a closer look at it, it just grows on you!! Right now I'm considering to buy the whole set from a friend... But unfortunely it cost quite a bit, US$37...

    To buy or not to buy... thats the question

    Cheers...

    Tenebrous, are these LFL licensed products?

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    The figures are stamped (C) Ferrero (C) LFL

    The insert has:

    (C) Ferrero except all Star Wars-related property

    I'll get my roommate to scan when he gets back on Sunday.

    Whoa! That's wild! For that stuff to be licensed product, $37 doesn't seem so high anymore.

    It's nice to see a Yoda item without a Lightsaber.
