Jedi Master Mace Windu returns for Episode III, and so he does to Hasbro's Revenge of the Sith line as well. While I've been impressed with many of the ROTS figures I've seen so far, this Mace Windu doesn't quite get there. This marks a good example of where action feature simply took too much away from what should have been a better figure. The loosie goosie elbow joints and odd formed shoulders are too distracting in my opinion, and beg for some kind of cloak or robe to cover them up. The action feature works well enough I suppose, but Iím forced to ask at what cost? Bottom line, the figure is pigeon holed by its play-feature and as such will probably get better mileage with the kids than with collectors. Mace Windu III-10 is currently listed in the initial wave of Revenge of the Sith Collection 1 figures hitting the shelves April 2nd.

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.
