Somebody Besides Me Noticed…

Imagine my surprise when I saw on Rebelscum this post, “The Redheaded Stepchild of Star Wars” re AOTC:

While looking on eBay today it really hit home that up until last year, Attack Of The Clones didn’t even get a toy line with a proper title logo on the packaging. I think it is time for the Star Wars Generation to embrace the second chapter in the Saga and show a little respect for this important chapter in Anakin’s story. If we can successfully demand a Ben Quadinaros figure we should be able to get this film a bit more positive recognition for it’s tenth anniversary.

Of course, I’ve felt the entire prequel trilogy gets treated like the Redheaded Stepchild. Which gets me to my next post…

    “Of course, I’ve felt the entire prequel trilogy gets treated like the Redheaded Stepchild.”

    So true!! I was pleasantly surprised to see this post on RS this morning–it was a real bummer, when AOTC came out, to get everything on generic blue “Star Wars” packaging.

    I dunno, to me the changing from the classic “Power of the Force” packaging to the blue was truly “Attack of the Clones”, just as Vader to Maul signaled Phantom. At least to me.

    Clones is still my “least” favorite of the prequels, and second only to New Hope in my “least” favorite of the films. I put “least” in quotations, of course, because they’re all awesomeness incarnate. And I have been finding a lot more value in Clones lately.

    My memory of seeing Clones for the first time…unlike the unbridled excitement I felt throughout the other six, Clones felt like a dream, and when it was over, I felt like I wasn’t quite sure I saw what I saw (in a good way!).

    If you check Insider 130, page 69, when asked what to look out for in 2012 I said AOTC. 10th anniversary, deserves some love!
