anything from the 1st three films should be burnt into a sludge pile.

one thing I don't get...do the speeder bike mods make any sense? what's the advantage of going from a seated "cockpit" to a straddle position like a crotch rocket or a horse?

and why are they always depicted firing blasters? it takes two hands. nobody's going to charge into battle on this weaponized vehicle with one hand on the controls and another around a blaster riffle. that always bugs me. the was a very specific purpose in JEDI where they used their own guns, and that was in a chase while the enemy was right next to them. I know, stupid thing to complain about given the rest of the movie(s), but tbh, the toys have always had more forethought than the movies.

anything newer than the 3 first films should be burnt into a sludge pile as i see it, its the kenner vintage 1977-85 stuff that is worth having. these replica and he-man looking sw shit from the 90s is crap. but i must admit that some of the 2000 stuff is very detailed and cool looking but i dont feel need to waste money on it.

meh. some of the prequel stuff is cool. some is retarded. considering how bad the movies are, it's amazing that the toys are as good as they are. one thing I never understood - and this comes from a guy who grew up on transformers and star wars - what the hell is the point in star wars transformers? a Slave I that turnes into a robot? uh. ok. millennium falcon? mmkay. tie fighter? uh huh. I feel like Tom Hanks in BIG here cuz <sheepishly raises hand> "I don't get it."
