    One way to out think people is to make them think you think they'll think what you are not really trying to get them to think what you think.

    I'm happy with it. I think the sculpts for the most part are right on! I do wish they would make those "statue" figs such as Luminara have more articulation so you can move them OUT of the statue pose!

    Favs: Bespin Luke, Hoth Han, Bespin Escape Chewie, Boba Fett Pit of Carkoon, Aayla Secura, Ephant Mon, Padme Pilot, Djas Puhr, Dexter Jetster, clean and bearded Endor trooper, trash compactor sets, Senator Palpatine.

    Least Favs: Senator Jar Jar, Flying R2 D2 Peasant Anakin, Qui Gon (they STILL haven't gotten his face right yet)

    Action feature: some are alright, like the small magnets in the hands, other than that, I can do with out them.

    Articulation: Glad they are getting creative and adding more joint articulation

    Lightsabers: ROCK!!!

    Paint Jobs: Pretty darn acurate

    Plundering and pillaging the Spanish Main! Arrr!
    I liked the SAGA line. The later part, especially. Favorites (Out of what I have ONLY, which is why Ephant Mon isn't there.):
    1. Republic Gunship.
    2. Trash Compactor Sets.
    3. Dagobah X-Wing/Nexu. (Just can't choose! )

    1. Arena Padme. Obvious reasons.
    2. Jango Pilot. I like him but he's just kind of boring. I get every Jango though.
    3. Jango Final Battle, not because I dislike the figure but because it's the ONE THING keeping my WM from getting new figures!

    Mixed feelings.

    I am not sure since it was the saga line that had me hang up collecting for a while. I guess the biggest complaint I have is when hasbro is on, they are putting stuff out like mad. And when they are off, there is nothing to be found. I hate that. 1 million Orn fre taa, but not one Aayla Secura.

    Favorites: Chewbacca with 3po, Ephant Mon and Bespin Luke.

    Hate: Orn fre taa, screaming mace, and generic endor trooper!

    Over all, I just want some figures. That is it plain and simple. I want to go to my local target and get what I want with plenty left over for every one else. I enjoyed that last year at this time. On the first day of releases I got everything that I wanted, and it was like that for a while. By the time Christmas hit...nothing. And it has been that was since. So it is just business as usual, and I have a feeling the collecting bug won't stay with me very long.

    I strongly agree with TheDarthVader except for really 1 thing:

    "Hey DV, what's wrong with Padme Coruscant's figure?" (the pilot) one?

    That's a good figure, isn't it? [I haven't had to open mine due to lack of room to recreate that scene so far].

    The only bad thing about her I can think of, is she pegwarms. That doesn't make her a bad figure, though.
    BAD Pts Need: R5-C7 lf leg (x2), , R4-P44 right leg BAD Pts Offered For Trade: PM me - I have lots of parts now including BG-J38!. New Kyle Katarn is also available.

    It's been a prety good line. It's been a hassle to collect them, and they seem to be harder and harder to get (any chance you could FIX that Hasbro?). Anyways...

    FAVORITES: Ephant Mon, Yoda Jedi Master, Count Dooku, Bespin Luke, Rebel Trooper, Imperial Officer, Endor Rebel Soldier, Anakin Hanger Duel, Padme Droid Factory Chase, Kamino Escape Jango, Republic Gunship, TIE Bomber, Tusken Raider w/ base, 12" Ultimate Jango Fett and 12" Count Dooku.

    HATE! Mace Windu Geonosian, Arena Padme, Pleasant Anakin, 12" Padme, 12" Anakin and Reek.

    I like the figure in regard to overall detail. What I DON'T like are the whacky poses and the "action" gimmicks. Those completely ruin the long-term playability or interest of the figure.

    Overall I'm not completely disappointed by the line. My one wish... create a neutrally posed figure first and then create the same figure in action poses down the line.

    I am overall very happy with the SAGA line. Many of the negatives I have for it are the result of the stregth of the POTJ line, and Hasbro's seeming unwillingness to recognize what makes a GREAT figure.

    That being said I have like just about all of the new figures - and am especially happy with the OT releases (Chewie, Luke, Vader, Han).

    Overall, I am not very pelase with the action features. I am also becoming increqasingly frsutrated with Hasbros distribution. Finally, the flimsy plastic used for accessories, and figures (see below) is crazy.

    My least favorite is the Battle Droid. Many times before I've ranted about this one. The inferior plastic used for this figure makes it a waste. There was no need to adjust it from the original EPI release.

    Now Padme Arena and Anakin OPD are also real gems in the world of bad figures. But having a 6 year old has taught me that these are in fact very popular.

    New figs are always a good thing - so I say GRRRREAT!
