Anne Neumann:
There is so much to absorb in this film it will be impossible to fully appreciate its complexities without multiple viewings. It is fast and quick to end, sometimes sacrificing exposition in order to move on to the next scene. But that is really my only complaint. There are three things that made the movie an enjoyable and refreshing experience.

First, the relationships between Anakin and Obi-Wan and Anakin and Padme are explored more deeply than in Episodes I and II which makes the downfall of Anakin even more pitiable. There is more dialog, more emotion, and more connection. Second, John Williams' music is superbly matched to the emotions and fight scenes. There is no Star Wars without his accompaniment drawing you into the scene. Finally, I really appreciated the lack of "witty banter" which is often a hallmark of a Star Wars film. This is a darker film with no need to lighten the mood. However, there are some familiar phrases that makes you smile and it pulls the entire saga together.

Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
