View Full Version : 12" Beasts. What do you want to see?

09-15-2002, 01:44 AM
OK, they still could do:

Ronto w. Jawa (I'd buy it, but it wouldn't be my first choice)

Eiopee (w. who? I want Shmi Skywalker in a 12" one way or another)

Jabba the Hutt (w. Oola would rock! Bib's been done, same w. Slave Leia)

Bantha w. Tusken Raider (I'm so there!!!)

Nexu - this could sell on its own I think

Orray w. Geonosian Picador - this could rock. The cart could make it better!

Reek - This could be really cool if you could put all 3 heroes on it.

Massif w. Tusken Raider - maybe... I'd prefer the Bantha. Both?

Are the Rancor and the Acklay getting way out of control???

I could see the Rancor before the Acklay, but man would either of them make a "Christmas item!!!"

Well, you know me, I'll take as many 12" figures as I can get. So, I'd have to say everything on your list Tycho + Kaminoan w/ Aiwahs (I know I've mentioned this on previous threads). I also think if a 12" Nexu was made Hasbro should include a ripped shirt Padme, and make it a 2 pack.

How tall would a 12" scale Rancor be? About 3 1/2 feet? How big would a Fambaa be? What about the Sando Aqua monster (now I'm dreaming)?

Eopie would be cool, but knowing Hasbro they'd include another friggin Qui-Gon.

Yeah, I'd say Kaminoan w/ Aiwahs would be my first choice. :)

Of your list I would pick the Bantha as my first choice. After the last Chewie release though I can only imagine how furry a Bantha would be.

Bantha!I'd love to see one with a Tusken Raider.Jabba the Hutt sounds nice too,along with a Rancor.Hopefully..if they ever decide to make a Tusken w/ Bantha it wouldnt be a Target Exclusive:(

Definitely gotta go with the Bantha and Tusken. As long as we get more Tauntaun quality than that of the Dewback. Jabba would be pretty cool, but also a bit big for the 12" scale, I think. Not so sure I'd care if the rest were never made. (Although a re-issued Wampa built more to scale and of better quality would also be nice - no stuffed animals on wires, please!!!).

The big frog like creature outside of Jabba's Palace (they also need to make a 3 3/4 scale one)

I would LOVE to see a 12 inch Kaminoan, but off of your list, I guess I would like to see Jabba the Hutt first. It would frickin rock!

Massiff would be great. :)

I hope we see some nice deluxe set from AOTC like the Tarpals/Kaadu set we got from Episode One.

What would make a nice set (and not be too big or outlandish for scale or price point) would be an Arena Padme & the Nexu.

Yes, I've seen the hidious pic floating around of the forthcoming Action Collection Padme, but as the "Defense of Naboo" set proved, sometimes Hasbro can re-visit a character's release with positive results...I think the Qui-Gon from that set is great...properly scaled with the other 12" figures, better quality jedi robes/outfit and a great head sculpt.

The Padme from the "Arena Confrontation" set could be outfitted with a ripped/distressed outfit, draped in the chain & with a realscan-inspired sculpt instead of that horrid Kewpi-doll head that the one coming out seems to be sporting. Add to that an intensely detailed (& flexible) Nexu and we could have a real show-stopper of a set for the Action Collection!

The only other big set I'd like to see is Anakin on the Swoop (with robes and a stern glare from Ani).....I know it's not a beast, but it would still be cool!

I would think the Rancor would have to be about 6 feet tall at the shoulder, look how small Luke looks in its hand and compare it to 12" Luke in your hand. ;) Plus, the thing is all body so it'd be a lot of plastic even if it was hollow.

I'm not a fan of 12" beasts, but if Jabba wasn't too expensive I'd buy that for sure.

As above...even is the heros are glued to the reek I will be happy..

The Nexu would be my first must have.
I would really want the Bantha, but man that would be costly!

Just Jabba.

09-18-2002, 09:53 PM
Jabba all the way. Not on the topic of beasts, but I think a Cantina Scene 3 pack would be cool. Hammerhead, Wuher, and maybe a Zutton? A nicely done scene (especially for us unopended collectors) would be cool.

Tycho, I like everything on your list, but I would most like to see a 12 in. Jabba. I have been considering getting the Jabba the Hutt Maquette (made by Illusive Concepts I think) in order to set up a diarama of his palace. Does anybody know if the maquette is the correct scale for our 12 in. figures?

What new 12" exclusive Beasts or Vehicles released in 2003?

02-12-2003, 04:05 PM
the gammeroean gurad could be considered a "beast". he's a kb toys exclusive.

the max rebo band has forever been rumored but not comfirmed.

leia with speederbike is a rumor that looking like a possibliity.

that's about it.

but hasbro is producing a 1/6th scale humvee for their GI Joe line, so they could easily make a snow or land speeder.

I was thinking more along the lines of a beast that would come with a 12" figure, like a Bantha and Tusken Raider or something.

That would be cool.

02-13-2003, 09:18 AM
I've got too many of these things, and 12" scale vehicles and oversized creatures is just outta control. The only ones I really want are Jabba, and I confess I would buy a bantha.

Of course that's if they don't look like crap, like say, the dewback. Oh yeah... It should go without saying that Jabba should look like the big puppet in ROJ, and not some CG rubbish.

02-13-2003, 12:14 PM
The problem with the 12" scale beasts is that most of them would have to be pretty big. With that in mind, the Nexu is probobly the most logical choice for a beast we 'may' get. The Eopie is also a possibility, as it can be packaged like the Kaadu, and Tauntauns that we have already gotten. Rancor, Acklay, Reek, Bantha, Jabba. . . these would all be huge, maybe bigger than the Dewback (and we all know how that sold.) Unfortunately, I doubt we will ever see another 12" at that size. I would go for any of the ideas mentioned, but I highly doubt Hasbro will.

02-13-2003, 06:39 PM
Hmmm.. Would a Jabba really be bigger that the Bantha? I think they're pretty close in size.

Jabba's probably the only one I would buy (and only if it's done well). I could see more speeder bikes though:

I would buy Ani, Dooku, and Aura Sing w/speeders if they made 'em! Or what about a sandtrooper w/speeder (like in the "Troops" short film) That could be cool too!
