This set is perhaps the least impressive set of the assortment, but only because the figures are less intriguing than those offered in the other sets. Dooku is rather plain, and Anakin's clinch fisted pose seems awkward at best. The mechanics of the set are equal to those of the others; metal rods allow players to move the figures back and forth along an arched groove in the base. Turning the lightsaber handle left or right will spin the figure into combat. When the pointed tip of the figure stand comes in contact with the release buttons on either side of the stand, the figure is quickly ejected off its base. While these sets have their merits, the novelty is quick to wear off. Had more gone into the line, I can only imagine it would be more attractive younger fans of the movies.
