Yep, Watto is cool in my book too - if they make another one, I hope they give him some sort of stand like they did on this one:

Interchangeable sets of wings would be great - one set like he's in flight, another set of them motionless.

I have loose multiples of that one. It was the last single-carded Watto we've gotten, and dates from late 2002. A "new" Watto for the Movie Heroes line could incorporate two sets of wings(in-flight, motionless), that same clear stand you see above and the body of the Cinema Scene Watto with a small hole drilled into his back to accommodate the stand. I'd buy him! :wink:

The box set looks good...but I'm wondering: are those racing flags made from colored paper or some sort of thin fabric? They look like paper.

Sadly, they look like paper to me too. If that's the case, pass...

Meh. I'll still get the set anyways. I'm more concerned with the figures than the flags anyways. The flags are just colorful little extras tossed in for background filler. :wink:

I added some boxed and a loose shot with the flags to our facebook page. The flags, while plastic, are disappointing as they are a very thin acetate sheet and seem kind of cheap, but I like that the figures include them so it's kind of a wash.

Hey Jayson, were there any deco changes? The only one that strikes me as slightly different is Teemto.

Minimal changes. There will be side by side shots coming soon.

Comparison shots added

So, just the most mininal of paint app differences then. I figured as much. The first photos they made public didn't make it seem like anything had really been changed. Look like Dud Bolt might have a brighter shade of blue on his belly and a couple of other spots but that's about it.

So, the flags aren't paper, but are more or less a think plastic like material... they are pretty shiny looking too.

Could be worse, but could be a lot better. I'm not sure if I'm going to pick these up or not. Right now, I'm leaning towards "no."

PS - Thanks Jayson for the awesome pics.

They don't look GREAT. But they're not all that bad either. In this day and age I suppose asking for fabric flags might have been too much, and even if they did include them it'd probably drive the price of the boxed set up about ten bucks or so and make it more cost-prohibitive for a lot of people.

Seeing those patterns would actually make creating custom ones out of fabric a very doable task.

A shame I don't possess those skills myself. :D Anyways, which is your favorite figure in the set? For me it'd be a close contest between Clegg Holdfast and Dud Bolt. The only character that sort of bores me is Gasgano, and that's only because I saw a million of him when he was first out over a decade ago. Gasgano was a pretty bad pegwarmer from the original wave of Episode I figures.

Gasgano is a horrible figure for sure. My favorites are Dud Bolt and Teemto Pagalies.
