I've actually been looking at "Ken's Clothes" in the Barbie section to see if I can find a shirt like Jango's Kamino fatigues he's wearing when Obi-Wan comes over for a visit.

I'd like to set up Jango with his son, out of his armor. It's a great headsculpt, but it's also such a darn cool helmet to have him with it on!

What to do?

I bought 2 Ultimate Jango's... One is to hopefully pose with his son. I liked their chemistry in the movie and it was very cool to see them working together, Boba learning from his daddy.

The other Jango will be posed fighting my Mace Windu. I have an extra E1 Mace, (1 for the Council, and 1 for a scene from E2 - and it's gotta be THIS!). I have saved the best sculpt/paint job on a TRU exclusive Mace at my local store - hid it because it's not like anyone will go looking for it next to the 20 other Mace's they could choose from there. But I haven't decided whether I want this figure or not. It's always good to have an extra Mace if you're making scenes with your 12".

Anyway, I'm going to do the Kamino Escape scene with the electronic figures since they'll interact with one another and it makes sense to use that Obi-Wan and at least buy something different. (I got 3 of those electronic 14" Vaders and would've bought more if I hadn't gotten control of myself!)

So I think 3 Jango's would do it:

Electronic vs. Electronic Obi-Wan
Ultimate vs. Mace
Ultimate w.o. armor with his son.

Now I need them to come out with a Boba Fett. What's Hasbro waiting for? They have the 6" Anakin pilot mold. I'm sure that body's not too useful for GI Joe's...

Make Episode 2 Boba Fett already! Will ya?

Yes, Yoda is overdue. While I loved AOTC, there's not too many 12" I want to see made from this movie. There are several though that have not been done that I want:

Boba Fett
Lanna Su & Taun We might be cool

Yoda with Lightsaber- I'd buy 2 (1 for E1 Jedi Council I want to set up)
Kit Fisto
Aayla Secura
Luminara
Bariss
Plo Koon - I'd buy 2 (1 for E1 Jedi Council I want to set up)
SaeSee Tiin - I'd buy 2 (1 for E1 Jedi Council I want to set up)
Eeth Koth - I'd buy 2 (1 for E1 Jedi Council I want to set up)
Adi Gallia - I'd buy 2 (1 for E1 Jedi Council I want to set up)
Oppo Rancisis

Chancellor Palpatine & Bail Organa
Mas Ameeda
Geonosian Warrior
Poggle the Lesser
Geonosian Picador on riding beast
Nexu
Reek
Destroyer Droid - I'd buy 2 (1 for E1 scene to fight the Kaadu)

Darth Sidious - I'd buy for Episode 1 scene

Padme in white
Padme in black leather
Padme Tatooine, half-shirt style
Padme Pilot & Captain Typho
Padme Senator (Palpatine's office)
Padme Nightgown (assasination attempt #2)
C-3PO
R2-D2 (I'd buy 2, one for and Episode 1 scene - I'd buy 3 if he has rockets)

Anakin with Swoop bike
Anakin with Jedi Robe & Obi-Wan Kenobi with Jedi Robe


Well, I guess that's still a lot. Thing is, I'd buy more of the first wave - Obi-Wan and Anakin (I already have 3 of each) if the came out with some of these others - top pose fighting them, or interacting with them somehow.

I'd love to pose Anakin, Padme, and Obi-Wan all riding a 12" Reek. It would only be slightly larger than the 12" Dewback.

Tycho, don't forget that Hasbro is making 12" Fan Club exclusives of all the Jedi Council members. 2 a year if Ki-Adi-Mundi sells well. And Plo Koon, who you are asking for is supposed to be out later this year, as the 2nd release for this year. :)

MTFBWY and HH!!
