Ok, as promised here are the photos of the Star Wars Magnets that I picked up today at the LEGO Store in Glendale, California.

Now, you must understand that magnets (or keychains) are not my deal so I really don't know if these are good or bad.  Supposedly, the lady at the store told me these sell like crazy and I was the first person to buy them (they came straight from the shipping container.)  She said people have been calling the store every days for a few weeks now.

So, here they are.  I left the resolution really high so you can see the detail.  Ask your questions and I will try to answer them as best I can:

Note:  Boba's helmet does not come off.

Wow, those are pretty cool.

Is there a difference between the magnet bodies and the regular bodies. It seems to be in the legs, but does it go all the way up?


Does the stormtrooper have a face or just a blank flesh head? Thats wierd.

As far as I can tell, it is only in the legs.

The stormtrooper has a blank flesh head.

That second set is awesome! :'-)  A rebel pilot, stormtrooper and a AT-ST driver all with new guns for 6 or 8 euro is a absolute bargain! *wub*

He, he...

Few words On!

(Ill stop it...)

It seems like TLC is going arround some rules with license this way.
So why not give us mini-figures that we really want that is not earlier released.
Then they could have a Jedi pack with never released Jedis like Ki-adi-mundi and so on.
IMHO this could be a BIG seller.
Like stated in another thread people will not buy multiple of a Jedi "battle-pack".
But 1-3 of those I would most definatle buy!!

What gets me is that the guards have black hands yet in the lego magazine i got the other day their clearly shown with red hands *wacko*  

Come on lego sort it out! Give us guards with red hands not black.

The problem mate is that this is NOT a mistake but a cost reduction !! Red hands cost more than black hands, its as crappy as that  >:-(  (Its the reason why Squidward and Mister Krabs have bley hands instead of their regular colour !!)
That is so tireing each time...

so wait, can they be used in the same way you use regular Minifigs, i.e. do the magnets get in the way of sitting? Do the legs and arms move?

Thanks!
Just returned from a 3 or so year dark age, so just getting back into the swing of things. :)
