I just received my shuttle from Brian's Toys and it is the coolest Star Wars toy EVER! Actually it is as cool as the 12" Scout Trooper and Speederbike! I never owned this when Jedi came out and to have it now is a real treat! It arrived in mint condition and I am totally happy with it! I recommend ownership immediately! This is the actual shuttle I received, I took this pic tonight.
|Sappy Expressionless Tantive Troopers:"J, I've taken a closer look at the variants. I knew the hair was different, but didn't realize the entire head was different. You're right. The Imperial Officer's changes between POTJ & Saga are definitely noticeable, as are the 2 diferent sculpts in the Saga line. The Rebel Soldier's changes are more subtle. I can see a difference between between the POTJ one & the Saga figures. I noticed the shape of the mouth is a bit different. On the POTJ, he has a bit of a 'sappy' half-smirk look to him. On the Saga figure is a more serious look. The trooper with the reddish-brown hair is expressionless. His mouth is a straight line. Also, his head seems to be slightly elongated. The black-haired trooper's mouth actually curls down slightly at the ends & his head seems a bit more 'triangular.' Hope that helps you. Feel free to post this to the troops, if you'd like. The case with the blonde Imperial Officer (1 per case) & the black-haired Rebel Trooper (2 per case) is 84861001X collection 2, wave 2. That case also is short-packed with 1 each of Aayla Secura, Lama Su & Barriss Offee."|

|Jango Fett - Prehensile Elbows - SirStevesGuide has added carded images of this Spring's Deluxe figures Jango Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi. View Jango carded, bubble close-up, and card back; or Obi-Wan carded, bubble close-up, and card back. Some caveots here are Jango's magnetic forearms, his collarless neck (again, even after the Kamino escape nitpicking), and Obi-Wan's cloak which smacks of Saga Qui-Gon syndrome (sleeves don't line up with shoulder girdle). The physical play interaction features are present, but can they outdo last Spring's Force Flipping?|
|Old Forces - Galactic Hunter has compiled an extensive image gallery devoted to an upcoming Imperial Four Pack called "Imperial Forces" that sees Hasbro playing Dr. Frankenstein with six older figure molds. Slap a clean Sandtrooper torso on a CommTech Stormie lower body and call it good. If that doesn't work, there is a dizzy Tantive Trooper behind some AT-ST goggles and throw in another mouse droid for good measure.|
|Jango and the Indigo Poncho - If Qui-Gon can don a tattered poncho to go low-profile on the mean streets of Tatooine, then Jango ought to do well to remain inconspicuos in a small town neighborhood by wearing a bright blue smock. This one comes from the latest 'Image Attack' from The Official Site.|
|Only Star Wars Fans Can Make This Happen - Special Realm's JediDaxter has put pen to paper again, writing a letter to Hasbro for a Cinema scene from The Empire Strikes Back, and this petition will need all the support, help, and listing it can get. Try on Imperial Officers (Admiral Ozzel, General Veers, Captain Piett) with Star Destroyer Bridge Base for size. UNITED WE SIGN, or something like that.|
|"Troopers! I noticed the post about the DVDs. I own this set, Special Edition, and it is HANDS DOWN better than VHS. They have a trailer on each one, but no other goodies. Well worth the money! I wanted to pass this along to the troops - if buying DVDs like these, make SURE they are the special edition set - there are other sets that are not the special edition and they dont play in PS2's, and have problems with the audio. If they are the special edition as pictured on Sandtroopers, they are great!"|
|"Boba-Brett with a follow-up. I was able to check out my TRU & Kaybee. Tru had pegwarmers, Luke & Tauntaun (floorwarmers) and 12" Boussh Leia & Han Carbonite. Kaybee had the usual crap but did have the 4-packs with battle droid w/ background.(I know that seemed to be a more difficult fig to find for completist). Also they had all the playskool sets (except the Falcon), but I noticed the card backs they were on were smaller and the "Star Wars" title along top was smaller than the ones I have. Has anybody else noticed this? Throw me a mail if you have any info. Thanks and MTFBWY!"|
