My 24 Week Plan to watch all of the Star Wars the Clone Wars episodes!

Week 17 already! This weeks episodes are: Supply Lines, Sphere of Influence, Corruption, and The Academy! All of these episodes are really cool! I love the whole last stand thing in Supply Lines. I always enjoy the suspenceful kidnaping in Sphere of Influence, and when Ahsoka and Riyo team up. Dutches Satine and Padme make a great team in Corruption. And The Academy is pretty cool too with Ahsoka having to take on the secret service without a lightsaber! Oh and by the way, "You will enjoy these episodes!"

Good News Alert! Finally got my computer in to be fixed today! Should be fixed in a few days and then we start Fan Art posts back up again! Can't wait!

Anakin Skywalker Action Figure Review!

I picked up the latest Anakin Skywalker the other day and here's my review!

Overview: Really been wanting this figure and I finally got it! It's really cool! I love everything about it! It comes with a lightsaber, stand, game card, dice and interchangeable robotic arm. I really think this is a must for any collector!

Details: Just like the Obi-wan figure, I think they did a great job on the outfit, but not as good in the details of the face. The hair looks really good, and things like the gloves, boots, belt accessories are great!

Robotic Arm: I love, love, love the robotic arm! It is so neat! All you have to do is switch pull out the right arm and replace it with the robotic one to put it in place. Really cool addition to the character!

Comparison: I think this is a figure that Hasbro really improved on! I love the fact they made him taller and many of the features are much more articulated, yet the face of the old one, I think, is closer to the actual character's than the new one. There's really nothing more to compare between the the two.

Conclusion: Wow! I love this character! I'm so glad I picked it up and I think it's one of the best, if not the best, in my collection! I hope this helped you in your decision to buy this figure! And as always, Thanks for reading!

LEGO Star Wars: The Padawan Menace Review!

WOW! It was amazing! I was laughing almost the entire time! Soooooo funny! There are lots of characters from the actual movies! Such as, Ashla the youngling from Ep. II, Darth Vader from the original trilogy, and one who I wouldn't want to mention as to not spoil the ending for you! There are even a few appearances from The Clone Wars, like Savage Opress, though he's only in it for a few seconds. LEGO version of George Lucas also makes a few appearances! I'm pretty sure that this show, however, would fall into non-canon. Overall really exciting show and I could watch it again and again! Thanks for reading!

Obi-Wan Kenobi Action Figure Review!

Picked up the latest Obi-Wan Kenobi figure the other day! It's really cool!

Overview: I'm so glad I got this figure! It's a really great addition to my collection and a must have for any SW figure collector! The figure includes Obi-Wan's lightsaber, the stand(w/ card), and the dice.

Details: This figure is definitely one of the best! I really love the detail in the clothing! It is really neat! Although, they seemed to have payed more attention to the outfit than the face. His hair is nicely done, yet the details on his face are not that close to the actual character.

Comparison: Standing the old CW figure up next to the new, and comparing accessories, I only notice a few things. I like how they make the new Obi-Wan slightly taller. However, the original Obi-Wan comes with his lightsaber AND a removable jet-pack. Whereas the new Obi-Wan only comes with his lightsaber. Now, I'm not saying they should have added a jet-pack to the new Obi-Wan too, it's just most figures come with some type of extra accessory aside from weapons. Another thing I noticed is that the original had a more rustic look to him, but after thinking over it I realized that the new one isn't rustic because the outfit is brand new. Also, as I mentioned earlier, the original's face is much closer to the actual than the new one. Another good thing is that the new Obi-Wan has movable knee joints, the original didn't.

Conclusion: I am super glad I bought this figure! It's really neat! I hope this was helpful to you in your decision on buying it! Thanks for reading!

Lego Star Wars tv Special!

Lego Star Wars official tv special is set to premier July 22nd on Cartoon Network at 7 PM EST! It sounds pretty interesting, and it seems like Star Wars is picking up their comedy from the LEGO Star Wars games and putting it into a bigger scale! I'm definately going to be in my living room at the premier! My only concern is that there are no voices in the games! Hope they change that with this special event! The first episode(not sure there will be multiple) is called LEGO Star Wars: The Padawan Menace. Apparently, C-3PO, R2-D2, and Master Yoda are tour guides in a field trip for a few Jedi Younglings. While on the field trip Master Yoda gets called away on a mission. 3PO and Artoo are left to take care of all of the Younglings stowed away on Yoda's ship. The droids find themselves in a very difficult situation, and both them and Master Yoda must protect the Younglings from the sith who have some master plot. It sounds amazing and I can't wait to see it! Set your DVRs or be there for the action on July 22nd! To read more and stay updated click here! Thanks for reading!

My 24 Week Plan to watch all of the Star Wars the Clone Wars episodes!

Week 14! This weeks episode truly are the most unique(in a good way)! I love how in Bounty Hunters the bounty hunters and Jedi have to work together for the farmers. And in the Zillo Beast episodes Clone Wars brings Godzilla into the series! I really hope The Zillo Beast makes a return in Season 4!(Since they seem to be following the original trilogy names they could call that episode Return of the Zillo Beast!) I can't wait to watch all these episodes again! Thanks for reading!

(P.S. My computer is still down and therefore I still will not be posting fan art yet. We will have it fixed soon though! :)

My 24 Week Plan to watch all of the Star Wars the Clone Wars episodes!

Week 13! This week's episodes are: Senate Murders and Cat and Mouse! I love these episodes! And I have to say, the creators of Clone Wars pulled off a great mystery in Senate Murders!
