I am particularly attracted to the Beaver, it looks the job, even if the real ones were mostly yellow for visibility reasons. (somewhere I have a MNR (Ontario) poster of them from the early 80's, when the CL415's were new)

It's like Galidor married Knights Kingdom and had a Jedi baby.

I'm a huge huge huge LEGO SW fan, and have no idea what Lego is doing with these Figures.

It's like Disney, Hasbro and LEGO got together to make something worse then the Star Wars Christmas Special. I better not get these for Life Day or someone is going to get disintegrated.

WWWAaaRRRAAAGGRaaaRRRgGGGaaaRRRbbBBBLLaaaRRRgggLLLLeee [footnote]but the SWCS had the awesome animated intro of Boba Fett animated by Nelvana ( a Canadian company with roots in the Yellow Submarine! ), based on designs inspired by Moebius, hired by Lucas because of their very weird Cosmic Christmas and ( maybe my fav ) Devil and Daniel Mouse, and went on to rock out with Mok in Rock and Rule, and eventually Droids and Ewoks cartoons to boot, so wasn't it worth it in the end?[/footnote]
