View Full Version : Gen. Jan Dodonna pack-in / accessories
12-27-2002, 02:03 PM
If / when Gen. Jan Dodonna wins the fan's choice poll what will we be getting with him??
He will be in that big bubble package and we have to get something with him. A big gigantic gun??
Seriously, what do you think we should / will get with him besides a piece of flooring as a base??

Make him a Deluxe figure, and include the Holographic War Room table. Either that or keep him as a basic figure, and just include the holographic screen from the briefing room scene. I would prefer the Deluxe idea. As long as he came with a removable soft goods or soft plastic/rubber trenchcoat. :)

No more soft goods please!
Haven't we learned anything from Obi-Wan Starfighter?

he'll doubtless be a basic figure and just come with some sort of baton for pointing to the projected plans on the vid panel. But he might come with the vid panel which would be nice. Some sort of strategy plan meeting with rebel pilots could be acted out that way. If he's going to be a 2-pack then I want comander Wilard with him. But that's not likely. Old men figures tend to come with nothing much but a hand held staff or gun or baton. As he'd be a fan's choice he might get the vid screen or if we're lucky the kiddie pool death star tracking screen thingy. Again that would be cool but then I'd be wanting the rebel tactician with black hair and the headset or Commander Willard or Commander Evram Lajaia and the clear plexiglass tactical screen that stands behind them in the Yavin scenes and the green uniformed cap wearing rebel soldiers and the small cargo transport barge with crates of republic credits for Han and and and - stuff.
God knows what hasbro would do with Dodonna. Stick him in some stayin' alive dance pose and paint him pink, give him a transforming feature that flips him into fighting stance ninja rebel commando action dude or something. Hasbro would probably feel that an old man figure would need something to make him more exciting and saleable so shove an almighty rocket up his jacksie and then we could fire Dodonna into orbit against the hordes of evil opressing imperials.
Got carried away there. I think a small accessory is all we might get, like Ellors madak. The kiddie pool screen or the tactical screen would be good though.

If they make him deluxe, then he'll end up a Target exclusive and most of us will never see him.

It's a Fan Choice figure, it's not going to be a Exclusive. So it won't matter if it's Deluxe or Basic. Just do a good job on the figure is all I ask. As for the comment about Soft goods. Yeah, sometimes they can be bad.
But you would need soft goods or a soft plastic/rubber trenchcoat for Dodonna. He's dressed in the typical Rebel Officer uniform during most of the movie. But during the briefing and the medal ceremony, he's wearing his coat. I want the option of displaying him for either scene. :)

They could pack-in one of the R2 units from the Rebel pilot briefing.:happy:
Or beard & moustache trimmers.:crazed:

Hmm, I'd go with:
-Attachable "hidden" blaster like Ephant Mon's vibro-dagger
-Small video console with DS plans like Wuher's droid detector
Most likely though he'll be like Palpatine and come with just a baton or nothing.

I think we should see less accessories but better sculpts, I mean Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, that is an amazing figure but no accessories.
Whereas Padme Amidala Arena battle has that big accessory but the sculpt isn't too cool... a nice sculpt is all that's needed :D

I'm with JarJar, just do a good job. I think he should come with a droid. An Alliance astromech droid.

I don't care what he comes with as long as he is awesome.

Hasbro designer huddles in damp cave in the bowels of Hasbro HQ...
"Note to self, sculpt in 'awesomeness'. Mustbe awesome or will fail dismally..... What's for dinner today?"
tazer gun zaps Hasbro designer...
"OOOOOOW! Yes marster, I will work faster marster, Renfield will design all toys to be awsome marster overlord of the World Hasbro CEO flunky and general taskmarster. Renfield will please you today, yes please you I will with much awesomness..... *whimper*.......
Hasbro designer retreats to dark damp corner and chatters away to himself of awsome things with awesome awesomness....... ;)

What's a Jacksie??:eek:
I think a good sculpt and a soft plastic overcoat are all that's required to make him "worthwhile". In my memory, the costume is fairly basic - without the intricacies of Luminara or Palpatine's robes so it should be fairly easy for them to replicate. Let's hope the try to do an interesting paint applique to make the robes look shadowed in the folds or something...something to make it a little more interesting than a grey haired fogey in a bed sheet. Any screen or display would almost be too good to be true, but here's to hoping. Im sure it will be a desirable figure.

Emperor Jargo's comments made me laugh out loud. Very funny.
I agree with JarJar's requests for changeable coat to war room jacket.
They can improve the material they use for softgoods tremendously - especially in a deluxe figure.
Or they can offer us extra arms, that are not wearing the over-coat, so that when we remove it, he is not still wearing the sleeves like the old Han Endor Trench Coat would be.
I fully support having the large "kiddie pool" Yavin tactical scanner as an accessory with this figure, done deluxe style.
Rieeken (and they better do him) can come with an upright, see-through tactical screen.
