    Man… is that the Arnold-Schwarzenegger-as-Han-Solo toy or what?

      PS from a photographer’s point of view, my favorites are the Jedi Spirit & R2 with the looming vader behind them, the sad-looking down-and-out Watto, and Jango Fett doing a sort of dance-step pose with the framed picture behind. Nice jobs, considering!

      (PPS I had to look up Watto’s name; my geekness only goes so far.)

    Fun. I like the Vader head towering R2 and Obi Wan. I think that’s Obi Wan. It’s too early for me to figure that one out. 🙂

    Are you sure that’s not your collection? You look like you had some fun. 😉

    I’ve been in a Star Wars geek-lust lately so I’ve been reading an Expanded Universe novel (Allegiance by Timothy Zahn which is not so bad, re-watching all six movies, and even went out and bought a cheap used copy of Star Wars Battlefront for Xbox.

    Well anyway, I think my biggest complaint about The Phantom Menace is that Anakin is a slave, shouldn’t that be portrayed as an utterly horrible experience. Sure he works for Watto, but ultimately it’s a carefree life for Anakin; loving mother in a rather large house, cranky owner who ultimately cares about you, lots of friends, yelling “Yippee” a lot. I think that Lucas should have written the conditions a lot worse, beatings and stuff. That way you really believe that Anakin wants to get off Tattooine, he would really have a great love and relief for the Jedi and Padme because they got him out of here, and there’d be a bigger guilt over him for leaving his mother behind in that situation.

    Would that be too dark for essentially a children’s movie?

      The list of things wrong with The Phantom Menace is too long to be recounted here, on a sunny Mother’s Day in southern California.

    Poor Watto. He has the only thing he ever really loved stolen away by a Jedi.

    I also really like the ghostly Obi Wan in the shadow of the giant Vaderhead.

      You mean the hyperdrive generator?

      • greyaenigma says:

        That was my first draft, but I was too lazy to actually look it up.

        But seeing him in Episode III — Anakin, you can fix almost anything, but can you fix a broken heart?

    Wow, Kit Fisto is a yummy piece of Mandingo, lemme tell ya.

    Oh my! I didn’t know they made a droideka in that size. It’s perfect for my robot collection.

    Do you know “Darths & Droids?” Phantom Menaced reimagined as a D&D campaign.

    Sadly, it seems to make much more sense that way.
