I am a huge Star Wars fan. And as a kid I loved the Prequels, especially Revenge of the Sith.
I know a lot of people do not like Prequels--but this is not what the article is about. This article is about all the action figures and toys I had based on Star Wars Episodes III: Revenge of the Sith.
I was 10 when this film came out in 2005, and my parents took me to see it on opening day and I freaking loved it! My family and I saw it 7 times in theaters which is the most times we ever went to the theater to see a particular film.
For me, it was a step up from Attack of the Clones and I consider it to be the best of the Prequels and arguably the best Star Wars film ever to date.
I also remember the hype for Episode III being much bigger than the hype for Episode II and arguably bigger than the hype for Episode I. I remember between April to June 2005, you couldn't go anywhere without seeing Star Wars merchandise in stores. To this day, the hype for Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith was the biggest I ever saw and it was the most excited I had ever been for a movie.Action Figures That I Have:Obi-Wan Kenobi:
I also loved seeing Obi-Wan as a Jedi Master in these movies and it was exciting to see him in action as well. I thought Ewan McGregor did an excellent job portraying a much younger and youthful Obi-Wan Kenobi.Anakin Skywalker:
It was also great to see Anakin Skywalker as a padawan and Jedi Knight in these movies. Hayden Christensen and Ewan McGregor make a better duo than Liam Neeson and Ewan McGregor. Hayden Christensen is a much better actor than Jake Lloyd even though I liked kid Anakin.Shaak Ti:General Grievous:
I thought General Grievous was an excellent Star Wars villain as well and I loved how he had four arms and four lightsabers! I thought he was so cool and scary at the same time as a 10-year old kid!Mace Windu:
Seeing Mace Windu kick butt with his purple lightsaber was exciting as well.Saesee Tiin:Emperor Palpatine:
And of course, Ian McDiarmid did an excellent job playing Chancellor/Emperor Palpatine. It was so exciting seeing him finally turn into Darth Sidious!Aayla Secura:Padme Amidala:
