Hey everyone.
Just got back from K-mart and let me tell you whatg happened. Its my uncles 40th birthday on Wednesday as me and my mum went to get a card. I took off and went to the Episode 2 section. I saw a Jar Jar gungan senetor and picked him up because I dont have him. So soon enough mum finds a card that she likes then we leave.
When I arrive home Iam about to put my Jar Jar gungan senator with the rest of my Episode 2 figures then something shocks me! It say "The Phantom Menace" just above his name. I think what the hell is going on? Shouldnt it say "Attack of the Clones"
Is this a HUGE variation or just a small stuf up?


Mod Note: I corrected the "birthday". Keep it clean guys:rolleyes:

I'd say it's a stuff up, I hope you've kept it in it's box, I've just looked at mine and it says Attack Of The Clones.

Yes. All my figures are in their box. How should I post a pic of it?

Ok, lets see what Jar Jar has to say.
I could get millions for it on ebay.

Definately sounds like a HUGE stuff-up to me.

I would personally sell it and get a proper version of it.

You could name your price on that one, variation hunters will be killing each other to get that one.

Sell It....NOW...

Happy Birthday ! ! ! :D



Geonosian, I'm not familiar with this variation either. Perhaps Thrawn has knowledge of it? He would be a good person to ask. :) Congrats on your variant. :)

Mod Note: Once again I fixed the "birthday":rolleyes:

Or you could do it the Real collector way and return it and just replace it with a regular one.

Very interesting error...

I'm not particularly sure how the inserts are printed, whether each panel is printed separately, or just a single set-piece.


But accidents happen all the time - somebody put Teemto's pictures in Ki's archive...must be worth more than the correct way. :rolleyes:

I am very skeptical of this. I would have to have the card in my hands to believe it. I could forge an image, if I wanted to, but why?
The cards and packing are mass produced. All printed the same. I find it very hard to believe that instead of printing Attack of the Clones, it prints The Phantom Menace. LKJfsaljasflkjadfs asfdljka flajkaf-0ikljr I would believe, but not The Phantom Menace.
pfffft. You probably bought a TPM figure instead, and didn't realize it. I wouldn't be suprised. :rolleyes:

If it was a Senator Jar-Jar, then it couldn't of been a TPM figure. ;)

It is a little unlikely that it truly does exist, but it could have been returned to the store by a joker who opened it, put The Phantom Menace on there, then resealed it.

I'm skeptical of that too, it may just be a POTJ figure, I would believe that more than a printing machine making an error.

Take it back and get one that isn't defective. Or maybe you can sell it to someone who collects defective figures.

As for the edit, I don't know, Someone has been doing that to me also. Gee I wonder Who?????? Did you say something bad or us the word GAY?

Did you put female dog day instead of birthday, like Caesar did? ;)
Get a digital camera. Take a picture. Upload the picture to your computer. Resize it in Paint (or email it to me ;)). Attach it in a post. :)
