I was wondering if we'd ever get a "realistic" Ahsoka. I don't know if I like her more than the 2nd version CW figure, though. I do like the CW-inspired Anakin, though.

The new Jedi version of Luke looks good, but again, don't know if it's any better than the one from the TLC Endor set last year. And what's with the brown robe? They did the same thing with the Vintage Anakin...they both wore black, didn't they?

That Tarkin is immensely awesome. Pop that head onto the right body and you've got yourself the Hammer version of either Van Helsing or Baron Frankenstein. :)

Okay, am I insane or did Hasbro blow it when it came to the MTT?

I swear in the movie that the Battle Droids came out of the MTT all folded up and then stood once they were put on the ground.

They weren't standing in the transport. :evil:

They blew it. The battle droids were folded up until they were released from the MTT. Besides, a Sandcrawler or Jabba's Sail Barge would have been better in my opinion.

I don't mind the MTT as a choice, but I think a new, larger Sandcrawler would have been awesome!

Maybe during Jedi's 30th? :?

The first 3rd of the movie took place on Tatooine . . .

Anakin's cloak was a dark brown and Luke's ROTJ cape/cloak was also a shade of dark brown. Due to color timing, it often looked gray in the movie but it's clearly a brownish shade when the costume has been on display. The issue with the figure is that Luke didn't wear a traditional Jedi cloak in the movie so Hasbro got a little lazy there. It's not bad if you want to consider it a post-ROTJ Luke though. Small quibble. I love the figure regardless.

I just read that Hasbro will not be revealing the slideshow to the public. Which sucks, beacuse I look forward to it every year!

What are the chances that the Hoth Echo Base trooper would be re-released? Never saw the guy

That's true too. I'll probably just end up throwing the robe from the Saga figure on him.
