I saw this posted in another forum, and thought it was cool. This is supposedly the second version of the prototype. Originally the pipe was a seperate piece, and then it became part of the head sculpt, and then finally was dropped totally. I am kinda glad they dropped the pipe, especially if it was going to be permanently in his mouth. :)

Would've been interesting to have on the figure, but think about it, they listed that on the side of the first Dex versions because he was supposed to come with the pipe, so we would've gotten the pipe text uncovered/covered variants anyways. Afterall, we got the uncovered/covered text variants on Luminara.

You can tell where they cut if off on the figure, mine still has a little bit of black paint from it on his lips.

Cool to see a picture of it.

Yeah, it is nice to see a picture. I think alot of people will agree that it was a good thing that Hasbro left it off the figure. It just doesn't look right. It especially would have sucked if it had been made non-removable. :(

Quick Question- Anyone else as disturbed as I am by the fact the prototype is wearing pink panties? I know it's just a prototype, and that they get made in whatever color happens to be on the production line at the time, but still. :crazed: :D

With Dexter in those pink panties, I reeeeeeeally don't wanna see a back picture.

I'm afraid it's a g-string.

Glad they saw the eroor in their ways! Would have been cool as an accessory though...

I also agree with hango-the pipe sucks. It would just get in the way, especially if it was permanent. If it wasnt it would get lost easily, im sure.

I would have liked Dex to have a pipe. Not stuck to his face but as an accessory. Would have been cool.

They should have left the pipe so pot-head Luke could have had someone to hang out with!:)

has anyone found one with the pipe as an accessory?
I've seen sites listing it as a variant, but I've only found the ones with: "pipe" covered up, and "pipe" not even printed on the insert
note: I have yet to find one with a backdrop card :mad:

Yeah, I've got one like that with the background. Happened by just happening actually, I wasn't even looking for the variant.

He never shipped with a pipe, ever. The pipe was dropped at the prototype stage. Any site that lists him as coming with one, is smoking somthing. :)

I think he meant the pipe being uncovered and listed on the accessory list on the side of the insert. ;)

also a Luminara Unduli with the words "removeable cloack" NOT covered :D

I've got one with a background and Pipe uncovered.

Why did they take the pipe off, is it because it's not suitable as a kids toy?

Beast

Because it was dropped from the film. Dexter only smoked the pipe in early design concepts. By the time he was finally CGI'd, Lucas had chosen to drop the idea of the pipe. It's not that big of a loss. :)

it would have given dexter more of a complex, though. but, good thing they took it out because he would have probably puffed all the smoke into obi-wans face or something...

Also it would have made the charactor more of a stereotype and cheesy.
