<< And the worst thing is, this is new Kenner junk. At least the old toys

 not talking
 about Princess Leia either.
 At this point, I'm glad the only new figure I bought was Lando
 Calrissian. After seeing
 how they "buffed" out Billy Dee Williams, it made me sick to my stomache.

Actually I was one of those wild collectors last night and I did pick up
about 7 figures, and they have improved considerably. Anyone who thinks they
are all buffed out hasn't checked them out in at least a year. Now they are
going for the ultra realistic look and the Episode 1 figures are actually
awesome. The articulation on Darth Maul is Fantastic, and they haide the
movement joints pretty well actually. So I would suggest you research a
little more before you make grand Sweeping Statements
