    Yes the "Jarrrrrrr-goooooo, meooow" uttering Nexu is very nice.

    It's actually quite weird comparing the arms of a POTF2 figure to the arms of say - Shaak Ti. As alike in sturdiness as chalk and cheese and speaking of cheese, is that what they make the guns from? Processed cheese..... Do they have grades of gumminess do you think? Like one grade for limbs and another for weapons and accessories? They've got a special name for the plastic they use now. It's like three letters or something. The stuff they make the weapons out of is called K resin I think. It was written on the Aayla Secura designs at C2. They were going to make her blue electro-force-effect from it. So if that's what hasbro is making the guns from then they can just stop right now and go back to the other plastic. And if they say they can't make small items for the figures out of the old plastic then alls I can say is "the gun that vintage Leia Endor and B-wing pilot came with" that's a tiny gun and suffers not at all from a lack of detail. It's one of my favourite stand in guns when I lose one from a newer figure. So making tiny hard plastic items isn't an impossibility like Hasbro would have us all believe. Filthy rotten fibbers that's what they are.

    The Rebel Trooper's blaster is at the top of my list. The trigger ring disintegrated, and the gun feels like it wants to split apart.

    I'm not stupid, so I can see exactly what this is. Most of these toys rely on accessories to be useful. So Hasbro makes them out of crud, so when they break, the kids cry until Mom and Dad go out and buy another figure for new parts. Or, if you're a collector, you get sucker-punched into buying an overpriced accessory set for that one replacement lightsaber or cloak or whatever.

    I was going to buy two Djas figure, one for Djas himself, and a second to customize into a Sakiyan companion, but no, because his guns are crap. Hasbro didn't even package them like on the back of the card (even though I'm pretty sure that you have to have your fingers close to the trigger to use a gun). Pretty shoddy, he may as well come with guns molded into his holsters, and part of the Cantina sets.

    Yeah. Like Dexter Jettster's implements of culinary expertise. I mean have any of you actually attempted to use his cleaver to cut a dead animal apart? I tried and it took me four hours to realise that it just wasn't gonna happen. Dexter's tool is just plain out floppy and he's impotent because of it! That's just cruel that is for the sake of being cruel....

    But Lord Tenebrous is dead on the nail with the conspiracy theory. It's all an insidious plot anyway. That smell that Tycho is always on about ids a powerful narcotic that gets you addicted fast so you buy more toys and spend more and more money just to get the vinyl 'hit' each time. hasbro are filthy pusher scum! Down with the scum - Hasbro must die!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry Lord Tenebrous, I've been far too facetious and I'm going to bed now. I shall leave this thread to return to it's more serious roots. Although I do kinda mean what I say and it would be possible to get a person hooked like that........

    Jedi Knightrider. I said Chewbacca is SWEET! I agree with bigb's assessment that he's the best Chewie to date. I especially love his head articulation. I just think that the rest of the line is complete turd. Especially Han Solo and Djas' gummiguns.

    It reminds me of the time David Hasslehoff got chased down Sunset boulevard by the police wearing nothing but a pair of cowboy boots and little Nepalese flag scotchgarded to his butt.


    For some reason my Nexu doesn't say "Jarrrrrr-goo" it says "Hasssssssle-hofff"...

    Now, I actually liked the Han Solo. It is a major one-poser, but for what I needed him for, he's perfect, exactly the way I needed him.
    However, I can understand why people have problems with it. It's the first decent looking Han Solo (at least in my opinion), and it's stuck in one pose with some stupid action gimmick. And even though I do like the figure, I would have liked the same figure with more articulation and no action gimmick even better.

    But, that is not the topic of this thread. I have also been against these crappy gummi weapons. As I've said once before, Hasbro should just included a canister of Play-Doh and let the collectors mold their own weapons. Then we can't complain because we knew they'd be Play-Doh all along
    Really, what is the point of having a blaster, say pointed at someone in a diorama, and the barrell of the weapon is pointed somewhere besides your intended target? It just looks stupid, like someone is "using the Force" to bend the weapon. Then you sit there for hours...or minutes trying to bend the sucker the way it should be, and then it still looks like crap. And please, don't even get me started on Djas Puhr...
    Like BB, I will glady take less detail to get a sturdier accessory. There has to be a medium here, Hasbro. Let's find it and let's get something done. Before it's all to late...

    End...
    They call them fingers, and yet they don't fing. Noodle that one for a while.

    I guess I misread that first sentence. Maybe I was talking about the C-3P0 accessory - I don't know. Is the 3p0 that bad? I kinda liked the idea that the eyes light up when you plug the head in! Can you plug it in backwards?

    It was the Lebanese flag, get it right. That's libel!!!

    No, actually I'm not familiar with that one. What do they say about a figure with a bent gun?
