yeah...shipping is going to cost me a bomb e3lipse. I got 6 boxes of opened toys and 4 boxes of carded SW toys, not including my other toys that have not been opened yet which would take about the equivalent size of those 10 aforementioned boxes.
that yellow animated trooper is so brick-like.. dang.
Yea kakitidur, animated clone wars figures are rather bricky... i just got my non animated arc for RM80..cost me a bomb.. but its something i wanted way back then. no its notsuper articulated, but this figure rocks none the less
OK, I got most of the ROTS Jedi but still outnumbered by Clones. Have yet to free most of them from packaging but got Obi-Wan ready to fly in his Jedi Starfighter... yes, when at far as to unpack the JSF already so standby for some pics. I've also snared Plo Koon's very nifty looking Jedi Starfighter and can't wait to put it to use too once I find some time.
Just realised though, that whilst the retractable fins on the EpII and EpIII Jedi Starfighters do seem kinda cool (plus toy gimmick), they really help the pilot flying in the cockpit. When extended, the pilots looses about half his/her port and starboard view. Duh? If fins were really required (to disperse heat or something) you'd think the starfighter designers out place them further back behind the cockpit or underneath...

Any button can be used to on the TV ? 1 of the button has vader dancing ballet. eject button on his chest..imagine upon pressing the button..one botak shrivelled guy eject out of the costume press it and he'll say" Luke! I'm ur father!" u press how many times he repeat how many times..haha.. press it and he will sing a song
Now now, they're only toys, don't over analyse them...they were designed to be cool first, and rational last... ;D
Hey, but movie come before toys, right? So, what did the starfighter designer for the movie have in mind with those flaps blocking the pilot's view... Not taking the pilot into consideration, yeah, Jedi don't need to look, they just sense everything around them like radar ...
Well, in the case of the ARC-170 Starfighter, it's like 'overkill'... ok with the flaps but does it really need 3 Clone pilots for a total of 6 pairs of eyes??? You wonder why the Republic was starting to run out of Clones when 3 get killed with every starfighter...
Oh BTW, no Clone 'V-Wing' style starfighter model/toy yet?
