I don't collect all of the 12", but that's a pair that I might buy from the FC. I haven't heard of its exclusivity until now either.

Does anybody have any pictures of the Plo Koon 12" which is coming out later this year or any of the newer 12"s which are worth getting?

I live in PA and I stumbled across a website for PA Star Wars colectors. They had a section that showed pics of their meetings and I saw this pic in there. Not sure if this is it or not, if it is maybe it's some kinda of advanced thing.

Maybe a prototype? A custom? :confused:

Looks like a custom. Nice custom from what we can see.

Master Goeweins

I would say custom as well, except it has a yellow lightsaber. Or at least it looks like it's yellow. How would he get one of those? Can you custom make those blades? I am sure there is a way.... Still, I doubt a prototype would even be available for someone to have.

Protos not available for people?
Check ebay.

I have several myself that are the pride & joy of my collection...
INCLUDING the 12" Wampa proto. The 1 I have has never been
photographed! Too cool!

I know that prototypes become available. I was referring to a Plo Koon prototype. Since he is not even in the production stages yet, I would assume that the prototypes are still in use. Therefore, it would not be available yet.

:eek: ! Hope "the real" Plo Koon looks better. Can't wait for this fig to be released though. :crazed:

I say that is a custom job, although with Hasbro you never know.

It looks like he took a episode 1 qui gon or obi and put plo koon hands and head on and then painted the lightsaber yellow

Hello I was just thinking I heard some one say that there will be two Jedi every year from the Jedi Council, Okay if this is true Plo Koon won't be out till next year right? Because Mace Windu and Ki Adi Mundi came out and there both on the Jedi Council and thats 2 this year. So could JarJar or anybody answer this question Please! Thanks, -Maul- :)

Yes, there is supposed to be 2 Jedi Council members coming from the Fan Club each year. Though that depends on how well Ki-Adi-Mundi sells. Plo Koon is still supposed to be released this year as the second Jedi Council figure. Mace was exclusive to TRU, and is not included in the Jedi Council exclusives. :)

After the 12" Ki-Adi Mundi who is going to be the next 12" to come out, i hope its Plo Koon. And also when is the next figure due out?

Beast
08-29-2002, 01:42 PM
Yes, it's been mentioned a few times before that Plo Koon is the next one. He was supposed to be out this year, but with all the delays getting Ki-Adi-Mundi out, who knows when he's finally going to get released. Hasbro said that the Fan Club will have 2 members of the council per year. :)

No doubt! I can't tell you how excited I'am about this figure coming out. Thanks for the pics derek. :)

he looks very good! :) does anyone know when this one will be
out ? will WALMART be getting the 12" inch PLO KOON? :confused:

Beast
09-08-2002, 10:24 PM
Jango Jett, it's a Fan Club exclusive. Just like the Ki-Adi-Mundi 12" figure. So that means he may be a shared exclusive with Disney, like Ki was. Hasbro is going to be doing the entire council as exclusives to the fan club. Plo Koon was supposed to be the 2nd release for this year. But Ki-Adi got delayed so long, that Plo may not be out until next year. :)

Mmmm. With a good paint job, this one will top Ki Adi Mundi!

Wow!

Hope his cloaks aren't that white and the lightsaber hilt he comes with is corrected, as well as the blade color.

Is that the Episode One Mace hilt that I'm seeing there? And should his blade be blue? Did we ever see Plo Koon with a LIT lightsaber in the movie?

Any which way, this one looks good!

How can Hasbro afford to do these if they are limiting them to Disney and the Fan Club? Do they get enough 12" orders to justify the production cost?

If so, this should have been started a long time ago!

hey tycho,

those robes and saber are just prototypes. i've seen prototype photos of darth maul and qui-gon in blue and red jedi outfits. from what i understand, they make these prototypes with what ever materials they have laying around.:)

Does Plo Koon have his own hilt?

Beast
09-10-2002, 12:57 PM
The Lightsaber Hilt that Mace had in Episode I was originally Plo Koon's. When they were doing some re-shoots they just grabbed Plo's saber and attached it to Mace's belt. In the comics it was explained that it was some ceremony where close Jedi friends exchange sabers for a while. :crazed: :)

That ceremony was between Mace Windu and Eeth Koth!

Beast
09-10-2002, 05:14 PM
Oh well, Eeth Koth or Plo Koon it's a silly EU explanation for a small mistake that doesn't mean anything. Besides the figure is obviously a prototype. :crazed: :D

Right, but like Mace, Obi-Wan, Anakin, etc. have their own "style" of hilts I was curious if PK had his own "style" of hilt as well. I couldn't find anything at sw.com but thought someone here might know.:confused:

This one looks great. :D
If you're a fan of the 12" line and aren't a fan club member I'm sure this latest edition to the Jedi Council will insure you soon will be. I'm afraid Jar Jar may be right though about having to wait until next year to get our hands on this. :(

I am a member already, but YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A MEMBER to order 12 inch Jedi Council Members.

You'll get shipping discounts and possible money off on the merchandise if you do become a member.

Subscribing to the magazine is not becoming a member!
Make sure you look closely into what you are signing up for if you choose to. All members do get the magazine, and other benefits. So far, being a member for 6 years has been worth it!

They wouldn't have changed the paint of Mace's hilt, belt and boots for Plo if they plan to replace them.

I think they have done a good job with this one. I will be piucking this up. I would like to see the yellowish saber though, instead on the blue one. I doubt it though.

I just figured that if you are planning on buying the Jedi Council members you might as well be a member and recieve the discounts. I know it isn't necessary but in the long run it pays off. :)
