Went to a Target in Vestal, N.Y. today, and on the shelves I grabbed me the new WA-7 (kinda neat), Emperor (I still haven't decided if I like it or hate it), and most notably the new 2nd set of Screen Scenes!
I've noticed a few posts where folks have mentioned that they have seen these sets in passing. Some shown excitement about finding them, while others just noted as if they were no big deal.
My question is this: Do you love these screen scenes as much as I do? They are totally superior to the old three packs because each one released to date had all new figures except for Dooku and Windu, and each of these figures are great.
In the first Jedi Screen Scene Evan Piell was beyond expectation, and Oppo was a pretty cool unique figure even though he is a little odd. I do like his extra pair of hands under his shirt! The 2nd Jedi pack is the best! Yaddle is terriffic, and although I'm not a fan of soft goods, Yarael Poof is a figure I've been dreaming to see. I wasn't moved by Depa, but the great thing about her being in this pack is that now every single Jedi council member from Episode I is made! I've heard people dreaming about this for a long time, and to get them all in one three pack saves on allot of hunting.
I will say that the first Geonosian War Room screen scene is the worst of the bunch. San Hill is a little weak, but Poggle is awesome. The 2nd Geonosian War room set is great. Although Nute has the exact same body as the first Nute, his cape, head, and head dress are correct. I would recomend that you don't stand the screen scene Nute next to the TPM Nute when you display them because they are almost identical. As for Shu Mai, and Passel they are great additions, and now almost all of the Separatist commanders are made!
In one post someone did bash these new three packs saying they were too expensive ($20), but they were the exact same price as the old three packs, and those did not come with chairs, accessories of any kind, or a table that could connect! These things to me are very exciting, I hope to see more of these and I was wondering if you folks thought the same!
