Anakin, eh Lars? Well, we all have to take the rough with the smooth, I suppose! :lol:

He's unlikely to be many people's favourite figure, but you can't have a complete run without him, so here's mine... in all his grey, dull, drab, tedious, do-nothing glory! :lol:

nice tedious Anakin all the same Jeremy

Here is my carded one from Echo earlier this year. Only £50 but has a cracked bubble, which I'm not sure whether I did or if it was already there. Nice Meccano bubble all the same

Unfortunately there won’t be much variety with this one, here’s mine.

Thanks, Andy :lol:

That is a nice Meccano bubble carded example, and £50 makes it a bargain, even with a cracked bubble, so congratulations!

Nope, probably not... unless someone has a POTF carded one they're willing to share and make us all drool over! :lol:

Yours is a great Tri-logo example though, so thanks for sharing.

Thanks, as you have only posted one picture are there no variants on this figure?
As for the POTF Anakin, I would be gutted to have to pay the going rate these days fir this figure to complete a run!
With so many characters to chose from from I’m amazed that this was chosen to be made!
Are there any Anakin focus collectors?

As far as I know, there are no visually different loose figure variants with Anakin, only carded ones. There may be some COO variants, but I don't collect those and hence am probably not the best person to say!

there are 2 no coo variants, maybe 3. I have all of them, the 3rd is maybe a production error since I have only found one of them with that no coo. The other 2 no coo have I found 50/50

Can’t say he’s in my top 50 figures, but who wouldn’t want a POTF example? For now I will have to settle for the Trilogo beater and childhood New Figure example card back and childhood figure. The other Trilogo card back was thrown in with a forum purchase a couple of years ago, which was a great gesture. Although can’t remember which member it was. :oops:

The small flimsy bubble is a sign of Meccano. And nice run theforce!
