Star Wars Little Skywalker!

Hey Gang!

Now for my next Star Wars character--Anakin Skywalker!
If you didn't follow all the Star Wars movies, you might not know Anakin 
Skywalker.  He is the boy that will become Darth Vader. In the prequel
trilogy, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace- 1999 

                                            Jake Lloyd  

Jake Lloyd portrays the young Anakin Skywalker  A nine-year-old slave boy with 
great piloting skills, who dreams of becoming a Jedi.  

This action figure and another with a droid were released in 2000 for that movie.  
I purchase him after see him on someone's blog where they re-bodied him onto 
a Big Jim body.  I couldn't see from their pictures how good this re-body might be.
I haven't found a Big Jim body cheap enough to try it with.

The box says he is fully poseable.

So here he is out of the box...

I like his face and his articulation.  He does look serious.  
He can bend his arms legs and bend at the wrist.  
His head can only move side to side but not up and down.
He is taller that the older Stacie dolls.
He is about the size of the newer Stacie and only heart dolls.
As with many of the Hasbro action figures,  his shoe are not removable.  They are
molded onto the end of his legs.  That is probably why I saw him on a Big Jim body
With his shirt off you see what a guess is a necklace or tattoo worn by the character.
He can turn at the waist but with his molded on boots I would have to cut the 
pants off or try to remove the boots some how.  I might try it one day when I'm 
really feeling brave.
Here he is in a shirt that he will wear to school.  His name is Andy.
Here is Andy with Benny, his younger brother who is a re-bodied Hearts family baby.
Their parents where killed in a car accident and they will now live with their
maternal grandfather Dr. Kenobi.. They all have that same serious look in
their eyes.

Thanks For Looking!

Andy is a cutie! He needs to take off his boots and that stuff on his chest. Other than that he is perfect! I like 'em.
His adoptive dad has on a really nice suit and tie!

Thanks for introducing us to Andy and his younger brother. They make a neat family with Dr. Kenobi.

Awwww ... what a cute family. He's got reason to look serious, your Anakin. He's going to grow up to be Darth Vader. Then again, this is your Anakin so he probably has some other fate before him, yes?

Thanks for sharing!

One of the worse SW movies ever!

Thanks for your comments The grandmommy, limbe dolls, D7ana, Sergio and Vanessa!

The grandmommy, He doesn't have feet in the boots. I might try to find him some later but right now I have enough projects.

limbe dolls, I thought it was only fitting.

D7ana, his life will have drama but not Darth Vader drama.

Sergio, You know I never see that movie. I think I have seen all the rest.

Vanessa, He is cute!
