    POTJ line, recap and review

    Well, this is it. The end of the Power of the Jedi line. I am sad to see it go.

    This line has been IMO the best line to date, a line that never had a chance to see it's full potential realized.

    I will start by listing the figures (3.75 inch) and vehicles and conducting a review of them in general. I will also give special mention to specific areas. So here we go:

    good topic.

    i'm not sad to see it go. not because i thought it was bad, but because we got a lot of new stuff coming. i'll be sad in about 2006 or '07 when the product does come to an end. hasbro has the rights to 2010, but i don't think it will go on that long.

    "It's bombs away for Iraq and on our civil liberties if Bush and his cronies get their way. Dissent is patriotic!"
    - Helen Thomas, veteran journalist

    Journalists are mostly centrist in their political orientation. The minority of journalists who do not identify with the "center" are more likely to identify with the "right" when it comes to economic issues and to identify with the "left" when it comes to social issues.

    I bought less than half of the figures on sith_killer_99's list, and I have to agree that for the most part it was a quality line. There were many that I admired on the pegs, even though I didn't purchase them. I concur, there were some poor ones but that's occurred in every Hasbro line so far.

    except for the rehashed maul, anakin and farmer qui-gon, i think this line was very solid, untill that zam wiesel fig came out. that is, in my opinion, the worst star wars figure EVER made. flimsy plastic hands can't hold her flimsy plastic gun.
