no. all i know is that they NEED to make these types of figures more frequently. all we have now are main charaters and a few non main guys.

they do need to be made. Some of them will cool look. but also for the ones out there who like to make the movie scenes.

I AGREE 100% - - Especially Wat Tambor! I love this guy. I also think he is the ONE figure that would be great on a COMMtech chip. Nice looks brentfett.

Wat Tambor is pretty interesting. Wonder if Hasbro is gonna make that dude form the banking clan or Poggle...

Wat was on lists for this year, but he may have been sent back to the development stages. Or he's coming. It's a mystery, really.

Separatists and senators just don't have the appeal that other mediums have, like the Jedi Council. We have about 20 named Senators from TPM, and we didn't get any of them. No Yarua, Edcel Bar Gane, Mot-Not-Rab, Aak Moe, etc. POTJ's Mas Amedda and Saga's Orn Free Taa are decent, but don't really reflect the characters themselves.

Time will tell if there's room for more political characters in a children's toy line.

Lord T is right. They just don't appeal. Audiences didn't even like the political elements of EPII. I am speaking, of course, about general audiences. If the movie didn't do it, then the toys surely won't. Especially for kids!

screw the commtech chip, lets get an electronic wat-tambor along the lines of R2!

Wat and Poggle need to be made.

Definitely need a Poggle. Seriously... how can you have all these Geonosians without their leader? Stupid. :frus:

all three of those should be made eventually, since they all had lines in the movie, and should be around for e3 along with the already made (and not needing to be made again) nute gunray.

I doubt they'd do a good job on his voice with the Commtech chip, they couldn't even get something as simple as the BD's right, they have human voices on the chips.

Just as the battle droids for AOTC were made reddish-brown at the last minute, the battle droids in TPM were originally supposed to have human voices, but Lucas digitized them for the film after the chips were already produced.

Not that it matters, though, since CommTech died.
