    Anakin Secret Ceremony

    I just got the Anakin Secret Ceremony figure. Why does he come with a light saber, blast effect, and a stern look on his face as if he is in a battle. Isn't this figure supposed to re-enact the wedding scene? He should look happy, not like he's facing the entire Separatist army. Maybe he misunderstood when Padme said "Get ready for some serious action tonight!"

    It fits his m.o. for the entire film...being angry for no justifiable reason at all. So with that in mind, it's the perfect likeness! :happy:

    I agree. I don't understand why they wanted to make this Anakin one that is a "battle" figure. Aren't there enough Anakins with lightsaber slashing action. Do we really need another one?
    I'm not a Hasbro basher, but I think they dropped the ball on this one.
    If you want to find it you have to shop.

    Its a good figure. I just don't think that the pose, accessories, and facial expression make it a wedding Anakin. He looks like Anakin, Jedi Knight (post-EPII).

    That's exactly my feeling on this one as well. It's a really good Anakin figure but NOT a good "wedding scene" figure. Ehhhh... what do I know? I like a lot of the ones that have come out recently... BUT NOT RIP-CORD ARTOO!!!

    Yea, Hasbro has done very well with this last batch of figs. Still, disapointing about the secret ceremony. What am I suppose to put on top of my wedding cake now? Bummer!

    I hope you weren't planning on using Broccoli Padme for your cake. I guess Padme will just have to stand by herself on her wedding day, because Annie looks like he's planning another Tusken population control session.

    I think it's a great wedding scene figure, the face is a look of deep intensity and he's the most neutrally posed Anakin yet.
    And I'm sure that when he's posed looking into the face of Padme, he'll look great.
    He comes with a Lightsaber for any post AOTC adventures that kids wanna play with.

    He probably heard about how "things" change after you get hitched, so the expression is probably showing his despair at getting less cootchie.

    Ha, I was going to say the same thing! Maybe he's getting the lightsaber to set loose the ol' ball n' chain he just married. No, wait he has to have the kids yet, but I bet he's saying "One of these days Padme, Bam, straight to the twin moon with ya!"

    Yeah, I keep looking at the figure asking myself why he needs a lightsaber, and whats with the mean face. Definitly going to keep that aggressive looking figure carded. I already have some mean faced Anakins loose and in battle.
