Chris:
George went deep and he didn’t drop the ball. I really didn’t think he had it in him.

The real achievement behind Revenge of the Sith is how it manages to throw new perspective on a classic character. It would be nigh impossible to watch Revenge and not have it color your opinion of Darth Vader. Anakin isn’t just evil (and as we see, when a Skywalker falls to the Dark Side, it's a long drop), he’s tragic. Just like it needed to, the final installment in the prequels adds new dimensions to the original Holy Trilogy.

There are occasional dialogue and pacing issues. There are some bad CGI-effects (stand-outs in a tidal wave of great effects). And Yoda still ain’t the same Jedi patriarch we first met on Dagobah. All these issues have been getting progressively better with each prequel, and Revenge is as good as we’re getting’ from Modern George. With a solid story, plenty of lightsaber action, and perhaps the best soundtrack of the series, we’re pretty dang close to the glorious heights of Vintage George - I’d even say we ended up with something better than Return of the Jedi. Which is a relief.

Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
I'm behind both of these ideas!
I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
It isn't for me.
