Just a heads up my Pre Vizsla's silver paint from the pistols are stuck to his hands, I dunno if it was wet paint or the rubber band was too tight or the hot summer weather, has anyone else had this problem?

Mine appeared to be fine when I opened it. Good thing to watch out for though.

Re: toppling Grievous

It has been mentioned in the RS CW10 Grievous thread that switching the detachable lower parts of the legs above the knees makes Grievous a lot more stable in most cases. My nephew recently opened up his Grievous and found this easy switch makes a world of difference. In some cases it seems the legs as originally attached make the feet bend outwards while the switch makes the feet lie flatter.

Mine was like that too, although the guns are fine there is still a bit of silver on the hands.

Just got the new Mace Windu.
Talk about an improvement. His ball hinged hips are the best I've seen on a SW figure. He can still sit like a swiveled hip figure unlike Pre Vizsla or the Arf Trooper who's legs kinda twist sideways.

The ball hinged ankles are also very cool and the Jango helmet with a thermo det inside is just the cherry on the cake. I'm glad I didn't pick up the first one.

I'm wondering why all the Jedi who jump in the air and flip all over the place in the show didn't sport this level of articulation from the start.

after looking at my new Grevious and seeing his picture on the card back, i noticed his Chest plate is removable, it comes off to see his organic material and metal ribcage underneath

Just tried the little battle game facing Windu and Vizsla.
Vizsla destroyed Windu both time. According to his stats he's a much more powerfull character  :rollfloorlaffsmiley:
Seriously though, do they really expect that game to be the next Pokemon?

It doesn't have to be huge, it just has to get kids to pick up a few more characters.

And kids will play any game like that.  The fact that you referenced Pokemon rather than a number of other things shows that you have no awareness of what's popular with kids these days.  :winking0071:

I said Pokemon because it's the first one that came to my mind, but I am aware of popular games like Bakugan, Yugioh, Beyblade who's making a comeback and I heard that Pong and marbles are still pretty big too  :)

Hasbro is doing so amazing stuff with the Clone Wars figures lately. I picked up Aurra Sing today. She is a great figure. I wasn't too excited about her when I first saw her on the pegs, but she really is a well made figure. Her antenna is way too big, the should have tied to put a thin metal stick in her head. But other than that, she is pretty sweet. Her sniper rifle is just perfect, and she holds it very well. I was not too keen on this line when it first came out, but Hasbro has quickly pulled me into it with these last few waves.

Are you trying to say Pokemon is not popular?!  Maybe you might want to revisit that - I have 4 kids, and feel like I am therefore somewhat qualified to speak to the matter, and Pokemon is still quite popular - the cards, to some extent, but moreso the games, in particular for the Nintendo DS.

I saw the Wave 2 figures at the FanExpo this weekend... gotta have 'em. They are awesome. I picked up the deluxe vehicles they had (Mandalore & speeder and Obi-Wan Speeder with side car) because they were the far better deal at $18 no tax.

Sweet! That is a great price, even beats WM's price. I am really looking forward to the Mando with Speeder. The Speeder looks very cool.
