Plug&Play TV Games - Star Wars

Shannen found me one of those plug the controller straight into the TV things last week, the controller itself looks really cool and I love the packaging, nice corny piece of Star Wars marketing, but no beating about the fact the '5 Epic Games Built-in' suck ass.

Episode 1 Obi-wan Kenobi Action Figure

Shannen recently found this on sale and picked it up for me, great articulation on the figure and looking forward to using it for some movie scenes soon, but for now here's a couple of fun images inspired by TPM...sorry but I don't have a 3D camera.

"Your apprentice, young Skywalker, will be..."

EU: The Courtship of Princess Leia

A good story but Leia could not be more annoying in this book as she fails to choose between Han Solo and Prince Isolder...

Bounty Hunter Action Figures

"Bounty hunters, we don't need their scum..."

"There will be a substantial reward for the one who finds the Millennium Falcon..." 

"...you are free to use any methods necessary..." 

"...but I want them alive..."

"...no disintegrations."

Embo Action Figure

Had this figure awhile but didn't get round to blogging it, posting it now since he appeared in the previous arc of TCW that ended last Friday.

A fairly well accessorized figure, comes with bowcaster, two vibroblades and a removable hat just like in the show.

You may already know this but a little Embo trivia is that he's voiced by TCW supervising director, Dave Filoni.

Plastic Lightsabers

Five very well used and very well worn plastic lightsabers.

Neimoidian Action Figures

"This scheme of yours has failed Lord Sidious, the blockade is finished..."

"...we dare not go against the Jedi."

"Viceroy, I don't want this stunted slime in my sight again..."

"...this turn of events is unfortunate. We must accelerate our plans, begin landing your troops."

"My lord, is that ... legal?"

"I will make it legal."

Darth Revan Action Figure

Another figure that I've post a couple of times before but again the character is a favourite and I wanted to redo it.

Finally a photo of Revan facing off against the Bastilla Shan figure that recently came out.

Star Wars Annuals

For the last few years my mum's been giving me one of these each Xmas as a bit of joke, haven't the heart to tell her that by switching from Clone Wars to Star Wars in '11 she's ruined the collection. Seriously though if I wanted the complete run of TCW annuals I'd have bought them myself, I keep these ones as it's a nice reminder of previous Xmas's and hopefully she'll keep the tradition going.

Grand Admiral Thrawn Action Figure

Posted this figure before but as I'm sure I mentioned I'm a big fan of the character so figured I'd repost it. It's turned out a lot better the second time and I'll definitely be revisiting a bunch of my figures and try to do them a bit more justice.

I really desaturated this one in an attempt to make the photo a bit colder than I'd normally post and I'm gonna make an artist's excuse here and say it's to match Thrawn's cold and calculating personality. Last photo today is the Admiral pledging allegiance to the Emperor.
