I just got it yesterday, here's a quick review:

- comes in a white mailer box with a big "KI ADI MUNDI"
and "MADE IN CHINA" at the front, and a barcode
at the back
- his white ponytail is plastic, it sticks to the top of his head,
and looks like it can break quite easily, so be careful there
- both hands are new moulds
- surprise, has a hidden handbag underneath the left side
of his belt, you have to cut the 2 threads that holds
his jedi outfits to his pants to uncover the handbag
- jedi outfit has a hood, you have to cut the thread that holds
the hood to his jedi outfit, hood is extra-long, so that it can
cover his long head
- the rest of the things are quite standard, nice figure

that's all

If you are telling the truth, I wonder why the display box was eliminated. Nice to look through, at least....

I think the display box is inside the white mailer box, Lord T. I have seen pictures of the mailer box, next to the regular box on another site, lemme post them here. This info is from Rebelscum. :)

12" Ki Adi Mundi For Order
Mike: Noble Toy of Hong Kong is offering the 12" Ki Adi Mundi for sale before U.S. release. The Fan Club exclusive looks to be double packaged in a white mailer box. The price is $35 plus Express International Shipping. Email manager@nobletoy.com.hk to order yours today and mention you heard it from Rebelscum.

I would wait and order it from the fan club if I were you guys though. It will be cheaper for the item, and the shipping from Noble Toy is crazy. Just wait a bit and the Fan Club will be offering it soon. :)

The standard blue saga display box is not eliminated, it is inside the white mailer box. It might not be clear in my review =)

I'm sorry, it's just that I associate Ki with that packaging with Jedi Council on it. Your emphasis on the mailer box led me to think that was all that this exclusive had to call home (like so many 4-inch scale items)

I talk to a person on the phone about when the 12 inch Jedi council members would go on sale...he said Ki Adi Mundi should go up on sale sometime next week on the website, possibly tues. or wed. he said, so for all those intrested, be ready!

Hey Very, Did he mean like all the new stuff (3 3/4", 12" delux ect.) would come out them?

VeryLaZ
06-21-2002, 08:40 PM
Hey Jango, all i asked was about the 12 inch figures, the fan club is the only place u can get the jedi council members, and i was curious as to when the would start going on sale...he said sometime next week on tues/wed.....u could always call them at 1 800 true fan, they r actually pretty helpful....

I just called the fan club about an hour and 1/2 ago and they said it would be sometime next month. Not sure if it's next week or next month but I can't wait. I'm Looking forward to collecting all the council members!

It's annoying that you have to spend $30 to join so you can spend $35 to get the figure. They claim they're going to do more of the council, so I may have to join...

As far as i know you dont have to be a member to order from the website, all u have to do is sign up, u can order stuff afterwards even if u dont choose a subsription plan......i've been doing it myslef and have yet paid any fees.

i've bought from the fan club before, and i am not a member. besides, i was able to purchase the "fan club exclusive" valorum and blue guard 2 pack from entertainment earth.:)

do you have to be fan club member to by this or could you by the star wars insider magazine and order through there?? i would like to buy this fig and the rest of the jedi council but i don't want pay a membership fee just to buy them!!!!

when you mean register do you mean at the starwars fansite??
or can i just call them up to place an order??

Vortex
06-25-2002, 11:21 PM
If you're a member you get to pre-order 1st for a few bucks less.
After that, once they get the shipments out to the members, or the shipments come in, they offer it up to everyone.

Memberships gets you a slight discount and 1st dibs on items. Just keep checking and you'll get your shot at it.

I have a membership and they make you buy into the insider mag, but you can still register and buy stuff, you just have to wait a few weeks after the member pre-orders.

The only perk I've had so far was buying two toy fair vaders for 12 bucks a piece from the fan club site.

Just hold out, you'll get it cheeper than any of the other sites.

Any of these other 12" Jedi suppose to come out when Ki does, or are they later??

Vortex

Don't know. Mace is out already at TRU and Amazon.com. I haven't heard much about any other council members, but I'll let Jar Jar jump in and take care of that one...

06-26-2002, 12:27 AM
I've seen mention of a Plo Koon coming later in the year as well -- sometime after Ki Adi Mundi. Their success with Ki will probably help determine how many get made beyond Plo.

From what I understand, the Fan Club will be offering 2 12" Jedi Council Figures a year, until the whole council is produced. The other one coming this year, is Plo Koon. No clue what 2 they have planned for 2003, and if that includes Mace and Yoda again. Or if they will be doing Yaddle and Yareal Poof from E1, or Shaak Ti and Coleman Trebor from E2, or all four. :)

is Ki going to really be available at the fan club?

Bent Wookie
07-11-2002, 05:55 PM
Yep, he's a fc exclusive! I called them yesterday and the guy I talked to said they were expecting the bulk of their shipment in early August. A few could show up before then, but the rest will be around August. At least that's what he said. Take it with the usual salt shaker or two. ;) At first, he will only be available to FC members and if there's any left, they'll be open to everyone else at a later date. So if you want him early, you'll have to join the club (if you're not already a member) or buy second hand. You do get a $10 off coupon though for joining so it's not TOO bad... Hopefully, Plo Koon should be before November. But that's definately not set yet. He said he thinks they're waiting to see how well Ki sells first. Don't shoot the messenger if it doesn't turn out like this! I'm only reporting what the guy said. :)

JediWannaBe
07-11-2002, 06:02 PM
I joined recently, where do I get a $10 coupon?
BTW-Amoktime has this fig for $45 if you have double the price to spend?

So how quickly do you get the $10 coupon. I want my Ki-Adi!!

VeryLaZ
07-11-2002, 07:20 PM
After a call to the fan club (they first told me in June the fig. would be out), a recording now states it will be out in late August...and I though they were going to have alot of the jedi council members come out in the duration of the summer...?

Have you received your membership packet yet? I'll bet it's in that. If not, call the FC. They were actually quite helpful. Shipping didn't seem too bad either. :)

I would have to give top honors to the Ki Adi Mundi 12 inch figure. I didn't think he would be that great until I bought him and took him out of the box! This guy has the most realistic looking face of any 12 inch I have seen. I'd have to put him in the class of Jango. Ki's Jedie outfit is well detailed and even has a cool hood to cover his tall head. There is a hidden accessory too, some type of "purse" that is tucked under his clothing. Ki also seems to have better articulation that other 12 inch figures. Holding the lightsaber with both hands in various poses requires no effort. This is always a plus!
If you are a 12 inch collector don't hesitate, get Ki now! You won't be disappointed!
I've attached some pics for you to see.

I don't have Ki yet, but a friend got one off ebay for some insane amount of money. I'll wait to get it at a better price.

Mace Windex
07-25-2002, 03:45 PM
I was checking out the detail on KI again and have included closer pics. His face is 100% identical to the actual character's. Plus, this figure's head seems to be in proportion to his body. He even has "crows feet" around his eyes! The articulation is better than on previous figures. He doesn't have those rubbery arms either. You guys will not be disappointed!
I got my KI at the Star Tours display at Disney. He wasn't cheap but way better than the $100 people are getting on ebay when I first looked. Actually, e-bay has a few that are reasonable right now. I think I saw one for $35 last time I looked.

Mace Windex
07-27-2002, 07:36 AM
Serg,

I'll get a pic of KI's arm for you. His elbow has a pivot joint and is just hard plastic. What I mean by more articulation is compared to the Episode 1 12 inch. I believe all of the EPisode 2 12 inch use the same basic bodies. Obviously, Ki has different hands though. He just seems in better proportion than the rest.

N-2PF
07-27-2002, 09:51 AM
It's the Episode I body.

Super Serg
07-27-2002, 05:59 PM
Yeah,
Those are also commonly known as HOF or the Hall Of Fame bodies.
Oh well, a quick transplant onto 1 of the newer Joes should do the trick.

WOW! I didn't realize how big this figure is. A buddy of mine has had Ki for a couple weeks, but I didn't see him next to the other figs. I just got mine in today, and put him on display next to the other AOTC figs, and Ki towers over the others. His saber is also larger, and Ki is very easy to pose as well. I give Ki 5/5 stars. Great, great figure.

JWB-

I got one off ebay with some money I won at the casino a couple weeks ago. I went in with $200, and came out with about 9 times that, so figured I'd splurge.

I also should have acted when you post Entertaiment Earth had the wave 2 figures available, but oh well. I've had my pre-order with TRU since available, but will most definitely act if I see them somewhere else whether they are a couple dollars more or not.

I got 2 coming to me and they offer FREE shipping to Fan Club members - perhaps because I ordered this quantity.

It's FedEx and I'll have mine Friday or Saturday!

(12" Dooku came out and he, Zam, and the droid are on hold for me as of this morning - a friend set them aside for me).

In any case, I think Dooku and especially Ki are some of THE best 12" I've seen for a long time.

Can't wait until traffic eases up and I'll head over to Wal*Mart to get mine.

BTW: 1 for E1 Jedi Council scene, and 1 to fight my SuperBattle Droids with another 12" Jedi Council Member to be determined later.

(Plo Koon, Eeth Koth, and SaeSee Tiin are possible Council Members we may see offered next - all Council Members available through the Fan Club only. You don't have to be a member!)

Whoo hoo, I got my two this morning! He's looks SHA---WEET. Just don't wanna take him out of the package at work though. (Yeah, I had them shipped to my work address) Safer that way.

Now bring on Plo Koon. Dang-it.

Tycho
09-01-2002, 01:31 PM
I got my 2!

All I can say is "Wow!" Cool deal!

Ki is on the list of my favorites for this year:

1. Jango!
2. Dooku
3. Anakin
4. Clone Trooper (any/all versions)
5. Ki-Adi Mundi


Obi-Wan was so-so. Nothing special. I like it because the figure's of my hero.

Zam isn't so bad. I like it because it's another female figure with a disguise feature. Could have been a lot better though.

SuperBattleDroid - boring. The lack of articulation is disturbing!
The sculpt was solid though.

Mace - the last time I checked, Sam Jackson played this character. That's not his image on the figure!

Overall, the choices are great. The Geonosian will be wonderful! I can't wait to see Padme, and for doing scenes, the new Anakin will be useful. I just hope he also comes with a cloak!

Great attention to detain on his cloths and lightsaber hilt paid off. This hopefully will open the door to making a 12 inch PLO KOON! ...or Luminari and Bariss Offee 2 pack ....or Shaak Ti. Oh this could be good if the quality of Ki is maintained.

Darth Cruel

Just got mine as well. I am on the list of people who like the figure. I am not quite as excited as most...I believe Hasbro can do a better job for the price on ALL of the 12" figures...but it is a very good figure.

Anyone else notice that he is holding Obi-Wan's lightsaber in the photo on the box?
