Continuity. Yoda is CGI in Ep. II and looks a good bit different than the puppet in Ep. I. Makes sense to replace the puppet with CGI so he looks the same in both.

I remember buying tons of EP 1 figures for $.99 a pop during the 2000 Black Friday sale on Amazon.

Whoops, my bad. I knew that didn't look quite right, but that was my last post for the day and I didn't bother "running spellcheck" on it.

I collected the Power of the Force figures from 1996-1998 (until my wreck in Oct. '98). Had a ton of them. Even bought duplicates of "soldier-type" figures and re-painted them. I took the gray Imperial officer and repaited one of them white to be a "maintainence" guy.

it looks like both. The MSRP looks like it's $19.95 now and it's the same picture as the original release.

Which one had the full circles and which one the half circles?

Was that the short saber/long tray version?

Don't forget the different pic of Obi-wan on the back, the brown vest Jedi Luke, and paint chip Threepio.

<-- owns all of them I stopped at TPM when they were no longer collectable and were mass produced beyond belief. Not to mention that is when a lot of people jumped on board. Foget the years where there weren't any Star Wars films. That is where you found the die hard collectors.

Anyway, I wouldn't mind a retooling of Yoda for Ep.1. But, I'm not going to double dip anytime soon anyway. I rarely watch that DVD as it is.

I have the first two, but don't remember the 3PO variation.

Looks like I did guess the reference correctly earlier... Maybe Jack just started with EP1 and didn't go nuts over 95-99 POTF figures when things were .00 instead of .0000. I used to run one of the fairly decently sized POTF sites back in the day, so I knew I didn't miss the reference.

And no, my .00 DVD was the tan vest version with long saber/long tray and closed fist, with Sealt-Marie on the back.

"Continuity. Ep. II is crap and looks a good bit different than Episodes IV-VI, which were good movies. Makes sense to replace everything so they ALL are crap."

Fixed.

As long as we're off track, I thought the ones in white were the medical staff?

Heh...glad to see I was not the only one to stop collecting the figures after TPM and the mass production...ah yes...I remember the dark years where there was no Star Wars merchandise at all. I remember being in shock when I saw Heir to the Empire in a bookstore out of nowhere.

Seems to me the CGI Yoda is the continuity problem.

He goes from puppet in EP I, to CGI in EP II, and then back to puppet for EP IV, V, & VI.

Don't worry. Lucas will replace the IV, V, and VI Yoda with CGI in due time, further ruining movies I used to like.

I also still see a lot of Ep I and Ep II DVDs in stores.

Of course, they're all pan and scan...

Well, we've gotten Jabba and Boba Fett recently. Give Lucas time.

There weren't a ton of changes in Ep I & II between theatrical/DVD releases. I'm sure we could come up with a complete list in a few posts.

EPISODE I: The VHS and Japanese laserdisc releases are identical to the theatrical edition. The DVD adds material to the pod race (3 stooges droids, multi-arm dude selling stuff, additional lap material) and also has the 'air taxi' scene when they arrive on Coruscant.

EPISODE II: A few incremental changes between theatrical print vs. theatrical digital vs. Imax vs. video. In non-digital theatrical, Anakin's 'new arm' just hangs at his side at the end. In the digital print (and all subsequent releases), Amidala holds his hand. The Imax edition (and, later, home video) adds additional dialog between Anakin/Amidala when he's talking about his slaughter of the Tuskens. And it also changes Amidala's line after getting up from the fall from the ship. In the theatrical, the trooper asks if she's OK and she gives a firm (and unintentionally comical) reply of "YES". Now she groans and gives a weaker reply.

I'm sure they've also tweaked a matte or effect here and there, but I think that's pretty much it.

Collected POTF figures from 97-99, and I think I have just about all of em. (orange and green carded) Bought a few of my fav TPM figs and called it good.

Those Taco Bell cup-toppers were actually pretty cool.
