    Question Movies to toys uncertainties

    I never did see that odd staff that came with Admiral Ackbar in the movie. And there are a number of others such as the talking troop transport (I know, it wouldn't have talked in the movie). Or were some of these things in the toys that most of us didn't see but were actually there. Please help.
    No matter how I die, even if there is a suicide note; it was murder. Cheers!
    MWHAHAHAHA!

    I believe many of the weapons were just added for play value. They still like to do that today I am surprised they never threw in a staff with the Imperial Dignitary. 'Course, that would require hands that could grip an accessory

    As for that Imperial troop transport (it was an Imperial toy, right?), I don't recall seeing the Imperials use one. But I always thought of it as a variation of the transport the Rebels used in the Yavin hangar

    I saw a troop transport yesterday!

    I was picking up a couple things at a local comic book store and there it was! Wow... talk about flashbacks to the "old days".

    The whole Rocket firing Boba Fett thing, that never appeared in the movie.

    I have the non-talking one. Bought it just last week in my Vintage playset kick I've been on recently. The first one was released with the ANH waves, and rereleased w/o electronics for the ESB stuff. There was something similar to it on Echo Base, but it was smaller in the film..and it was an Alliance vehicle, not Imperial.

    What really suprises me is that I can fit Eeth Koth in the holders on the side.

    I liked all the "fake" things Kenner used: Mini Rigs, "wrong" weapons, etc. Cases in point:
    Ree-Yees
    Bib Fortuna
    Admiral Ackbar
    Cloud Car Pilot

    Plus, these characters never had weapons, but still came with them:
    Lobot
    2-1B
    Ree-Yees
    Bib Fortuna
    Admiral Ackbar
    Cloud Car Pilot

    I was disappointed that the first wave of POTF2 figures came with such crappy "fake" weapons, but I never complained about the extra stuff. Gimme more guns! Uh, toy guns...
    CU Later. Contracted Universe? Later. :(
