I thought I would throw this out and see what everyone else thinks.

Do you think the Endor Rebel Soldier looks like a slimmed down Kevin Smith (Silent Bob)?

I have shown this figure a lot of my friends, and they all agree that the face sculpt on this guy bears a very striking resemblance to the famed Director/Actor/Marvel Comics Writer.

As a matter of fact, a lot of my friends are starting to call this guy Kevin Smith in Endor Gear.

Just a thought!!!

MTFBWY!

I like the comment that someone made about the face looking like Tom Green.

I mean, I know the coat is green, but it never struck me as "slimy." :D
You wrote "slimed" instead of "slimmed."
And no, he doesn't look like Kevin Smith.

I had not heard about that one. :) Tom Green as an Endor Trooper...

Yeah, the Tom Green theory was pretty prevalent when the Trooper first came out. Some people here are still convinced that he does, but that's just because they're all hopped up on mouse droid fumes...:D:D:D

I still think he looks more like Kevin Smith than Tom Green. Of course, you need to see Kevin Smith when he looks "normal" (like on Leno) and w/o the glasses! :)

I think it's supposed to be John Knoll from ILM.

My vote's with Tom Green (the 'actor' not the polygamist). It sooooo looks like him it's not even funny.

I don't see how you look at it and picture Kevin Smith, cr. I don't think the rebels would ever use a trooper who has to wear a XXXL uniform on a mission so important. ;)

That's why I initially said slimmed down! :) You are right though, at his current stature, Kevin Smith would easily be blaster fodder for the Imps!

But he does look like Tom Green:D

Here take a look for yourself:Endor Tom Green Soldier (http://www.sirstevesguide.com/forums/attachment.php?s=&postid=95141)

Of course JarJar would disagree:rolleyes: :D

Dar' Argol, for the love of god man, it is not Tom Green. I won't even get started on who it's supposed to be. Geez, could you beat that dead horse anymore? Oh, and where is the SSG chatroom? :D :crazed:

Oh, Dar' Argol. I am not sure if they are the same scale or not, because I haven't seen them in stores yet. But there is a Johnny Knoxville figure in the MIIB toy line. J.K. plays Scrad and Charlie. :)

And I also agree the Endor Soldier looks exactly like Tom Green, not Kevin Smith.

I have to agree that it looks like Tom Green. I've thought that ever since I got the figure.

JarJar, thanx for the pic:D. I'd have to remove that other head though, and repaint him, and maybe add a cast to his foot:D:D:D Then he can really kick Tom "Endor" Green's butt!!!!


Seems like the Tom Green'ers have it here. I'll see about doing a Kevin Smith comparison:D

He does look like Tom Green, but that's because they made him look nothing like they were supposed to.

Someone mentioned him looking like the guy who plays Zed in MIB and MIB2, I'd have to agree. Looks like Tom Green and a slimmer version of the guy who plays Zed.

Hm, I might pick up an extra one of these for the custom Jay and Silent Bob Star Wars style figures I've been waiting to make. At least I'll have a head for SB. But it does look more like Tom Green than Kevin Smith, I just need a white guy with brown hair and a goatee.
edit: LTB, Zed is played by Rip Torn if I'm not mistaken.

JarJar is gonna LOVE me for this one:D he he he.

For those who are having a hard time deciding, here is the ultimate comparison. Tom Green vs. Kevin Smith. Who looks more like our friendly neihborhood rebel???

Sorry, I couldn't find a good pic of Kevin without his glasses

:D

Definately Tom Green. I dont see any resemblance to Kevin Smith. Maybe if Kevin's hair was lighter and his face was a little bit thinner, it would look more like the figure, but I just dont see it.
Thats Mr Green, in plastic form.

The face is stupid. Show me a soldier in ROJ with a hipster goatee like this freak, and I'd still be asking why they didn't do the cool, blonde bearded Willie Nelson looking guy. Way cooler. Do we know what the variant second face on this figure will be? Are their pics? Im going to check the archive here.......

jjreason
07-03-2002, 02:18 AM
Im back. The other face looks a little rounder. Maybe if you search high and low and can get both variations, you could have one Tom Green and one Kevin Smith (complete with size xxxl uniform!).
I will buy an extra one and try to transplant RockNRoll's head onto him. Only then will my Endor squad be in balance.

I stick by what I said in the last "Endor Soldier Looks" like thread:

Brendan Shanahan of the Detroit Red Wings.

I still say John Knoll. What the heck, they made a Sacul, right? Maybe this is the beginning of a trend.

Compared to Knoll's picture, they made the head too tall and he doesn't have the hair running from his bottom lip to his chin that the figure does.

Now I want a Jason Mewes Tantive IV defender
and I also want a Ben Affeck/Matt Damon Hoth Troop set and let's not forget a Chris Rock Yavin sentry!!!!!

You can call it Tom Green all you want, and I will admit, it does look a lot like that freak... but I've called mine Kevin Smith...so it's Kevin Smith.

Funny you should mention that. Last weekend I managed to find an R4 figure in a bin at TRU. I figured I would open it this weekend to celebrate the 4th of July:crazed:

MikeAndtheBots...
You are right about Rip Torn playing Zed in MIB and now in MIB II

To get off the STAR WARS Endor Soldier topic for a moment....
I want to see Hasbro make a line of MST3K figures
the line-up could include:

Mike Nelson
Pearl
Bo-bo
Crow
Tom Servo
Gypsy
Cambot
Dr. Forrester
TV's Frank
Joel Robinson

I think they'd sell! :)

The picture that was used to get the Endor Soldier from before it was photoshopped had them on the ROTJ Death Star set (as a joke most likely for publicity shots) and they had "captured" Luke and some Soldiers had confinscated his weapons.

They photoshopped a background, they photoshooped a goatee, but they didn't photoshop the lightsaber out. Sad ain't it?

Looks like we have another "famous" face in the SW universe, according the the article posted on SSG today, July 30, 2002, http://www.figures.com/databases/action.cgi?setup_file=ssnews2.setup&category=starwars&topic=31&show_article=426

It appears that none other than Mr. "Cleveland Rocks" Drew Carry has been immortized in plastic as Qui-Gon. Of course the figure has a beard, and the hair is not only way longer, but darker, but I can see the resemblance in the face to Drew. What next, A Ryan Stiles Obi-Wan, or a Colin Mocharey Palpatine? How about a Wayne Brady Mace Windu? We already have Greg Proops (Fode and Beed).

We can always worry about a Mimi Ephant Mon.....

It never ceases to amaze me the "lack" of quality control at Hasbro! :)

Way to go guys!!!

Beast
07-30-2002, 06:17 PM
It doesn't look like a lack of quality control. It looks like some dumbarse opened a Qui-Gon figure, sanded off the beard and other stuff, and then re-carded it. Someone's playing Thrawn for a sucker, and he fell for it. Why am I not surpised. :rolleyes: :happy:

He's not the only one that fell for it. I thought it looked pretty good! :)

I also have been the victim in the past of someone cutting the bubble on a Luke (Tatooine Hat) open, and removing some pieces. I didn't see the cut, and bought the figure thinking it as a packing error. Imagine my disappointment when I found out what had happened! :)

He doesn't look at ALL like Tom Green OR like Kevin Smith. I personally think he looks like Rip Torn aka Agent Zed from the "Men in Black" movies.

I hadn't noticed until my wife picked it up one day in TRU and said "Was Tom Green in Return of the Jedi?"

After I'd stopped laughing at her, I had to agree that it was a fair question to ask!
