2002...another year for Star Wars
An article on Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.
Hey guys, I'm back! Now I am going to be doing an article on all the action figures and toys I had based on Star Wars Episodes II: Attack of the Clones.
I was 7 when this film came out in 2002, and my parents took me to see it on opening weekend and I really liked it. Me and my family saw it 3 times in theaters which is more times than when we went to see The Phantom Menace which we only saw once.
For me, it was a huge improvement over The Phantom Menace and I consider it to be the second best of the Prequels and arguably one of the best Star Wars films.
I also own a lot more merchandise from this film than Episode I because I was older when this film came out and enjoyed it much more than The Phantom Menace.
Action Figures That I Have:
I loved seeing a blue Boba Fett in action. The battle that Jango Fett had with Obi-Wan Kenobi on Kamino was definitely one of the best fights in the whole movie and one of my favorite battles in the whole entire saga.
Orn Free Taa:
Super Battle Droid:
I loved seeing the backstory of the Clone Wars and how it all unfolded.
It also was so awesome seeing all the Jedi in action in the Battle of Geonosis.
Count Dooku is an awesome Star Wars villain and Christopher Lee gave an excellent performance.
Seeing Yoda finally kick butt with his little green lightsaber against Count Dooku was exciting as well.
Lightsabers that I have:
I loved playing with these lightsabers as a kid. As I said in my Episode III article, me and my brother would both pretend to be Jedi, except this time he would be Obi-Wan Kenobi and I would be Anakin Skywalker. We would pretend to go on missions together. We would also get in imaginary lightsaber fights and pretend that Obi-Wan and Anakin would fight each other.
Anakin Skywalker's Speeder:
As a kid, I loved the Coruscant chase and would watch it over and over again on DVD. I remember going to the store to buy the speeder that Anakin and Obi-Wan drove in Coruscant and I was so excited when I got it. At home, I would always reenact the scene of them chasing after Padme's attacker Zam Wesell.
Obi-Wan Kenobi's Jedi Starfighter:
I loved playing with Obi-Wan Kenobi's Jedi Starfighter as a kid. I use to reenact the scenes where Obi-Wan Kenobi would chase after Jango Fett and go on imaginary missions with this thing!
Star Wars: The New Droid Army:
Star Wars: The New Droid Army was a Star Wars video game made for the Game Boy Advance. You play as Anakin Skywalker, who is sent to investigate rumors of the Separatists making a new type of droid, superior to other droids and invulnerable to lightsabers. Anakin travels to Tatooine, but is hunted down by Aurra Sing and eventually held in the captivity of Jabba the Hutt. Anakin breaks out, and is called to Coruscant. There, Anakin chases and defeats a Dark Jedi named Trenox, and uncovers Count Dooku's plot to destroy the Jedi Archives. Anakin stops him, but Dooku escapes. Anakin is next sent to Metalorn, where he is to destroy the Cortosis Droid Factory and capture Wat Tambor, the leader of the Techno Union. Anakin completes both objectives, but has to face Count Dooku while leaving the factory. Anakin defeats Dooku, and moves on.
I use to playing this game on my Game Boy Advance when I was 8 and 9 years old. It was a great strategy game to play and I was so addicted to it! It took me a year to finally beat it!
Attack of the Clones Cereal:
Who remembers the big tie in General Mills did for Episode II by release all kinds of different Attack of the Clones cereal boxes for all their cereal products? I sure do!
When I was a kid back in 2002, I would always ask my mom to get me Star Wars cereal boxes for breakfast to collect all the new Star Wars tie ins.
Attack of the Clones Pepsi Cans:
Does anybody remember the Attack of the Clones drinks Pepsi released back in 2002 to tie in to the film? I sure do!
My parents would constantly buy Pepsi drinks at the store back then just so we could collect some of the Attack of the Clones cans Pepsi made. We got ones with Anakin, Jango Fett, Obi-Wan and Mace Windu, and Clone Troopers on them!
Attack of the Clones Pepsi Bottle Caps:
Also, Pepsi released all kinds of different Star Wars characters on their bottle caps for their Pepsi bottles to tie in with the film. Me and my family would constantly buy Pepsi bottles at the store just so we could collect all of the Star Wars character bottle caps that Pepsi made!
Attack of the Clones Doritos 3D Images:
And of course, who can forget the Doritos 3D images that Frito Lay released in all their potato chip bags to tie in to Attack of the Clones?
As a kid, I loved eating Doritos (still do) and you can bet I begged my mom to get me these Episode II Doritos bags to collect all the 3D chips with Episode II characters on them just so I could collect them all!
Well, that's all the merchandise I own from Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones! Please leave me your thoughts on the article and thanks for reading!
