Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!
The magnetic lightsaber "Force Attraction" feature was either disappointing or a complete failure on most of the figures of that period...I can't think of many where it functioned very well. The Bespin Duel Darth Vader with the breakaway piece of the Cloud City walkway/gantry had an effective magnetic feature that was kinda fun, but the figure's armor and costume were inaccurate for THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. His eye lens color and upper torso were the way Vader appeared in A NEW HOPE. He was the wrong Darth Vader to be packaged in with EMPIRE accessories.
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
