Look, I've loved these little things since almost day 1 of their Playskool SW release, but there are some figures I think shouldn't be smiling like idiots. For example, today I picked up 2 new sets:
Jedi Luke & Removable Helmet Vader
Leia Boushh, Han Carbonite, & Carbonite Block
Of those sets, all the items are smiling - ALL OF THEM!!! INCLUDING THE CARBONITE HAN AND VADER! Why the hell is the frozen Han figure smirking? In the movie, he's in agony, but here I guess he's tickled pink that he's been betrayed by his old pal and his loved ones are about to be tortured to death. And with Vader, well... I'm Darth Vader, I've just lost a lightsaber battle where I was told to kill my only son, betrayed my master, and am about to die as my suit is failing and I'm being exposed to the unclean air by having my helmet removed, so of course I'm thrilled about this whole experience.
Now, granted, I know these suckers are supposed to be for the really young kiddies so everything has to be happy and safe, but can't there be room for at least NO expression if you aren't willing to show unhappy emotions on these?
(BTW, the carbonite block is pretty nice, it's not hollow, it's not too shallow, it's got a very decent sculpt with controls on the side, and on the undetailed back there's a cut-out so that the Skiff Han in the set can stand partway in and pretend to be thawing out.)
