View Full Version : Toy vs Movie Inconsistencies (merged)

Someone else brought this up in another thread, but I also had the idea to make a thread about all the figures and toys we've gotten that don't quite match what we saw on screen. I'll leave out unused accessories (mostly), since pretty much most figures have an accessory that wasn't in the film.

*Obi-Wan Kenobi (Slashing Attack) - He never used his TPM/AOTC saber in the film (except in what I can only guess was a blooper - it sits near him when he's knocked out by Dooku), so he shouldn't have it here.
*R2-D2 (Droid Attack) - I was waiting to find out what the hell his teeter-totter did, but still no answer. Thank God his enormous head-arm wasn't in the movie . . . was this supposed to represent the little thing he used to zap the buzz droid? And the slicked-up SBD parts accessory would've been better without C-3PO's head in the middle of it.
*General Grievous (Four Lightsaber Attack) - Was this guy in the movie? I didn't notice. ;)
*Darth Vader (Lightsaber Attack) - I suppose his pose could work in the "Nooo!" scene, but just the fact that he has a saber and an attack to go with it is misleading.
*Emperor Palpatine (Firing Force Lightning) - This should've been a figure from the Yoda duel, but instead it's from the scene where Vader gets operated on. I didn't notice him shooting lightning at Vader, did you?
*Shaak Ti (Jedi Master) - She had two planned death scenes, but neither of them made the cut, and she wasn't even on the council.
*Mon Mothma (Republic Senator) - This is this film's Orn Free Taa. But at least he had a line this time! She was in the scene where Anakin and Obi-Wan land after the Dooku fight, but I wouldn't have noticed her if not for the figure in the first place.
*Ki-Adi-Mundi (Jedi Master) - He has a Kashyyyk base, and Kashyyyk looks nothing like Mygeeto.
*Clone Commander (Battle Gear) - While it's a great figure, I didn't even see a red commander in the movie at all! The only one like this that I saw was Commander Bly on Felucia, but his markings were yellow.
*General Grievous (Exploding Body) - I would've preferred a version on fire to one that randomly falls apart. I don't think he really exploded in the movie, he just sort of fell to the ground anyway.
*AT-TE Tank Gunner (Clone Army) - There weren't even any freakin' AT-TEs in the whole movie, let alone this guy!
*Mas Amedda (Republic Senator) - To my delight, he didn't use his stupid tongue this time.
*Clone Trooper (Super Articulation) - The only all-white clones in the movie were on the ship during the space battle, and I didn't see any with wires in their backs.
*Ask Aak (Senator) and Meena Tills (Senator) - Similar to Mon Mothma, they were likely in that scene and that one only. I believe that they were also part of the delegation of 2000.
*Utapaun Warrior - I didn't see any of these guys up close, though I did see some people fighting in the background on Utapau. I figured it was just clones and droids, I didn't see any of these. I bet that forumite -Durge- cried when he didn't see any of these guys. :D
*Turbo Tank Driver - They didn't show inside the Turbo Tank, and I suppose this is like the guy that Yoda decapitated along with the camo commander. But still . . .

I'll talk about the deluxes and ships later, unless someone else wants to.

"*Shaak Ti (Jedi Master) - She had two planned death scenes, but neither of them made the cut, and she wasn't even on the council."

Actually, Shaak Ti *is* on the council in ROTS, though you'll miss her if you blink. Look at the hologram of the Council when Yoda is talking to them from Kashyyyk. You can see the rear of her head. :)

Ya bunch of nitpickers! You're just not happy unless you tear down one of the greatest films and toy lines in the history of the world!

Sorry, just wanted to see what it was like on the other side.

This time around I only bought villains and army builders, and now I find they hardly got any screen time.

Neimoidian Warriors - (bought 6 this week) Background guard duty. Oh well, still a neat looking figure with samurai-like armor.
SA Clones - (bought 12 this week) Darnit! The camo/jungle clones looked cool though.
Royal Guards - (have 8) Background guard duty, although Yoda took out two of 'em pretty easily. Would've liked to see them in action, maybe at the Jedi Temple massacre.
Wookie Warriors - (bought 8 this week, have 6 preview) Where the heck was the Kashyyyk land battle! Disappointed in that. We just got that one scene with the Wookie front line roaring away.
Polis Massan - Just got to see him in the background when Padme arrives. We should've just got the OB/GYN droid.

Deluxe
Clone with Jetpack - (bought 1) Didn't see this at all.
Yoda on Can-Cell - I passed when I saw it Didn't see this either

Um...actually the AT-TE shows up twice that I noticed...once on Felucia and briefly on Utapau...

I didn't see the Utapaun warrior, though I'm checking out the movie on a digital presentation so I keep my eyes peeled. Even if they don't show up, they make a pretty cool figure. I hope we see figures of those little Utapaun mechanics...

I didn't catch any TT Drivers either but again, still a cool figure...

And speaking of the clones....there were enough variations on 'em to keep Hasbro busy for a long while!

I believe there were Utapaun Warriors flanking Tion Medon in his scene. There are Neimodian Warriors gaurding the door on the Mustafar facility.

Hey, yeah Slass Allie was driving a OT speeder, only with red markings. Just watched the scene (DLed only the Order 66 scene) and noticed.

Well, it is called Darth Vader, Lava Reflection. So, maybe he goes back to Mustafar after the operation, stands at the edge of the lava, and reflects on the @$$ kicking that he received. :D

I guess George figured Shaak Ti got enough screen time in the animated Clone Wars. Sure would have liked to see her in action again. She kicked butt, only to get humiliated by being tied up. Hope she is in an extended version of ROTS dvd. The Clone with Jet Pack was in the animated series also. I hope Hasbro makes the yellow version of the Clone Commander though. lol

This IS an accurate toy! I don't know what you guys are talking about. It's called Yoda on the CAN-CELL...cancel...meaning, it wasn't in the movie! :D

General_Grievous
05-22-2005, 11:51 AM
The can-cell was in the movie. First scene on Kashyyyk. They were flanking the wookiee helicopter.

I have a few inaccuracies regarding film-figure continuity aside from ones mentioned.

Anakin Skywalker (#1)-Comes with an extra red lightsaber, which doesn't even exist in the movie.
Yoda (#3)-Comes with cannon that is also absent from the movie
Chewbacca (#5)-Comes with bowcaster, which he doesn't use in the movie
Mace Windu (#10)-Comes robeless, but he is always wearing one in the movie
Kit Fisto (#22)-See Mace Windu
Red Royal Guard (#23)-Comes with rifle, when it should come with force pike
Saesee Tiin (#30)-See Mace Windu
Exploding Grievous (#36)-He never wore his cloak like that in the movie

Deluxe
*Anakin Skywalker (Changes to Darth Vader) - We knew this wasn't going to be film-accurate, but still worth noting.
*Emperor Palpatine (Changes to Darth Sidious) - When he wears that costume, he's already scarred and creepy.
*General Grievous (Secret Lightsaber Attack) - Grievous didn't use an enormous grappling hook gun, though he did use a small one (sans gun) that came out of his wrist.
*Darth Vader (Rebuild Darth Vader) - He had his robotic parts put on before his armor.
*Yoda (Fly Into Battle) - As said before, Yoda was in the film, and cancells were in the film, but not together.
*Clone Trooper (Firing Jet Backpack) - I didn't see any jetpacked clones.
*Stass Allie (Exploding Action) - As said, the wrong speeder bike.

Battle Arenas
*Chancellor’s Office - Sidious vs. Mace - Sidious lost his saber before his face was deformed, and Mace wore his cloak the whole time.
*Utapau Landing Platform - Bodyguard vs. Obi-Wan - I don't think this set lets you drop a big piece of machinery on the guard. :D

Vehicles
*Boga with Obi-Wan Kenobi - Obi-Wan had a cloak while riding her.
*BARC Speeder with BARC Trooper - I think this is supposed to be from Kashyyyk, but I only noticed Commander Neyo and his Target exclusive pal with these on Saleucami when they killed Stass.
*Grievous’ Wheel Bike - His seat's on the wrong side, and two of his hands should be gone.
*Republic Gunship - The ones in the movie were the same paint scheme from AOTC.

Role-play
*Anakin's/Vader's Lightsaber - Though this was supposed to be just a fun toy, Anakin's saber never changed colors.

WesleySr

Yeah, but at least Hasbro corrected this so that is now contains the correct Dooku lightsaber. Now if we can get them to correct the #35 Palpatine lightsaber handle. He is packaged with Anakin's lightsaber handle instead of his own.

*R2-D2 (Droid Attack) - I was waiting to find out what the hell his teeter-totter did, but still no answer. Thank God his enormous head-arm wasn't in the movie . . . was this supposed to represent the little thing he used to zap the buzz droid? And the slicked-up SBD parts accessory would've been better without C-3PO's head in the middle of it.I think you're right about the point of the arm, it doesn't really come away feeling like that though and it's coming out of the wrong door in his dome, but I think you're right. As for the teeter-totter, it's blackened at one end, I think that is supposed to represent the oil R2 sprayed to knock over those 2 Super Battle Droids (and there are 2 shallow footpegs too far apart for 1 figure on the blackened end IIRC). It sorta follows my theory on this: http://forums.sirstevesguide.com/showpost.php?p=385982&postcount=3
except that I was totally wrong about R2's involvement, the ROTS R2 figure can stand on his 3rd leg straight upright while wearing the booster rockets on his legs thus simulating is flight in the scene, then you push down on R2 while in this "flight" to move the seesaw base, knocking over the SBDs.


*Utapaun Warrior - I didn't see any of these guys up close, though I did see some people fighting in the background on Utapau. I figured it was just clones and droids, I didn't see any of these. That's one I noticed while watching the film, I looked and looked for these guys, at first I thought they were Tion's escort but those guys had closed-face helmets.



Deluxe
Clone with Jetpack - Didn't see this at all.Yeah, I looked for this one and didn't see it. Weird because LEGO made a version with the Clone Turbo Tank, so I think it has to be in there somewhere, possibly way in the background or possibly a cut scene like Ep 2's speederbike.


Yoda on Can-Cell - Didn't see this either I saw the can-cell and I saw Yoda, but I never saw Yoda on a can-cell, especially in that cross-legged position that the figure permanently is in which makes it a crappy statue.



Um...actually the AT-TE shows up twice that I noticed...once on Felucia and briefly on Utapau... I don't remember exactly which planet it was on, but I remeber seeing a modified AT-TE with a troop platform on top somewhere in the film, possibly Kashhyyyk.



Hey, yeah Slass Allie was driving a OT speeder, only with red markings. Yeah, that's the one I pointed out on Friday: http://forums.sirstevesguide.com/showthread.php?t=28453



How about #27, Jedi Kick Obi-Wan, I don't remember him kicking this way in any roundhouse style kicks. I think the preposed left arm is supposed to be suggesting when Obi-Wan reaches out to Ani during the final battle but I don't specifically remember it.


Oh, and does anybody notice if there are any Clone Troopers that have the Imperial logo on their left shoulder armor the way the CT#6 figure does?

If you are referring to Yaddle, the Jedi Council member who appeared in EpOne, she was killed off in an early edition of the Jude Watson "Jedi" books for young readers.
Others who've left the council...Yarell Poof (Q-Tip) died in an early "Republic" comic shortly after Episode One, Oppo Rancisis (the Hippy-lizard) died at the hand of Sora Bulloq in a recent issue of Republic, Adi Gallia dies at the hands of General Greivous in the last chapter of "Obsession". Depa Billiba (the twin-braided female with the mark of enlightenment on her forehead) ended up going crazy on Haruun Kal (see "Shatterpoint" for that story).
Even Piell (the short big-eared guy standing next to Yoda at the end celebration on Naboo in EpOne), Eeth Koth (the light-skinned Zabrac featured in EpOne & AOTC) have fates that are unknown at this time.
Coleman Trebor dies at the gun of Jango Fett (AOTC). Shaak Ti is killed by Anakin in the novel of ROTS...
And of course, we witness the fates of Plo Koon, Saesee Tinn, Agen Kolar, Mace Windu in ROTS...

Hope that helps catch you up....

She's in the movie. When the Republic forces are gathering just before the Battle of Kashyyyk erupts, you can see her standing on a small platform about two feet off the sand on the left side of the screen. She's standing very rigidly, directing Clonetroopers.

I really hope the DVD will do right by us, but I am not going to count on it. I WANT 20 minutes added to the movie and 30 minutes or more of Deleted Scenes on the second disc. I EXPECT a few seconds of added footage to the film and about 15 minutes of Deleted Scenes on disc 2.

C3PO. He's pull-apart, and in no scene of the movie does he get dismembered (thank the maker). The #7 Artoo is also somewhat guilty - his packed in piece of debris is actually C3PO partially disassembelled (you can see his head on one side of it).

The seesaw base for me represents the gravity changes happening on the Invisible Hand, for me that's accurate. :)

JediTricks
05-26-2005, 02:04 AM
The head in that pile of junk with R2 could be any protocol droid, the Trade Fed do use them onboard their ships and the junk is blue.

I believe ROTS C-3PO isn't intentionally removable-limbed (discussed in this thread: http://forums.sirstevesguide.com/showthread.php?t=27362 ), I think it's designed this way to accomodate the chrome parts using softer bushings that won't rub against other chrome parts.



Also, seeing the film again today confirmed what I thought previously about the Deluxe Clonetrooper's jetpack, a modified version can be seen on, appropriately enough, Commander Cody. The jetpack is scaled down some but has the same shape with the exhaust nozzles, but no wings or missiles.

And Yoda definitely isn't on the Can-cell insect, you can see them flying on Kashyyyk only once and it's while Yoda is already with Chewie and Tarfful at their command center.

After getting the deluxe Obi-Wan today, I think he should have been packaged with a regular battle droid instead of a super duper one. His arms make him look like he did in the part when he jumped out of his starfighter and cut down the droids in the hangar. I don't think he even fought any SBDs in his cloak, since he dropped it when he started to fight Dooku and then went on to fight the blue boys.

JediTricks
05-31-2005, 07:27 PM
Did Obi-Wan face off against SBDs at all in the opening battle? I think he cut a few down when he went up against Grievous on Utapau but even that I'm not sure of.

BTW, if you would be so kind, please post your thoughts on the dlx Obi-Wan in this thread: http://forums.sirstevesguide.com/showthread.php?t=27457 I am very curious about that dlx set.

AT-TE is seen not only on Felucia in both the Troop carrier mode, but also the standard walker, but also on Utapau. You can see it clearly in several scenes and it's the very thing that shoots at Obi-wan. When Cody says "Take him down," it's an AT-TE that sizes up Obi and takes the shot.

There are a plethora of Utapaun Warriors. They are riding the beasts in some scenes, but can also be seen in the scene when Cody asks if anyone has found Kenobi. They are being "escorted" away by clonetroopers.

Mon Mothma, Meena Tills and Ask Aak are all scene ever so briefly in Palpatine's arrival after the Invisible Hand's crash landing.

06-08-2005, 03:59 PM
Ask Aak is also virtually identical to his appearance in ATOC where he has a line or two with Bail in Palpatine's chambers as they all debate the use of the clone army --- just after viewing Obiwan's desperate message. . .

What about R4? What is that planet is that hologram accessory supposed to be of? Any ideas? I think it's cool, but wonder about its origins. . .

Hasbro was quick to fix the Palpatine (#35) blue lightsaber with the red, then why havnt they fixed a few others? *ahem*

- Agen Kolor comes with a green lightsaber but its blue in the movie! Sure you can buy him anyways and swap the blades if you have an extra blue. This one drivesme crazy for some reason. :frus:

- Obi-Wan (#2 I think) comes with an Episode III lightsaber hilt (which is great!) and an Episode II Lightsaber. Why? Not sure what Hasbro was thinking when they packed these.

Did I miss any? Anyways, I passed on both these figures because they're WRONG!!! If anyone from Hasbro happens to read this, just a few notes...

There are several other things they should look at. Just look at Bail Organa's facial expression. He looks like he is having trouble with passing a high fiber meal!

That along with the quality of some of the figures still leaves a lot to be desired. The Wookie Warrier does not hold any of his accesories worth a darn. In fact he does not even hold the bowcaster at all and has a hard time even standing due to the way his legs are shaped at all the ends.

All in all though the figures are great and the 4" figures in many cases are better articulated than the 12" figures that cost 4 times as much.

In fact he does not even hold the bowcaster at all and has a hard time even standing due to the way his legs are shaped at all the ends.I got my Wookiee Warrior to hold all his accessories, see here: http://forums.sirstevesguide.com/showthread.php?p=398038#post398038


Oh, and I merged this thread with another that was the same basic topic.

I'm willing to bet that Hasbro will do a MUCH better ROTS Obi-Wan in time. So I'll just wait until then.

Don't forget there's still the Obi-Wan #56 to come. From what I've seen, it looks pretty good. I would like an Obi-Wan with some black Mustafar ashes on his tunic and stuff.

according to Hasbro reps, the final figs (pilot obi wave) even tho they are coll. 1, do not have action features.

*Emperor Palpatine (Changes to Darth Sidious) - When he wears that costume, he's already scarred and creepy.
...
*Boga with Obi-Wan Kenobi - Obi-Wan had a cloak while riding her.
Actually, he's wearing that robe when it happens, but he didn't use the hood 'til he was gross and scary.
And Obi-Wan rode Boga after his fight with Grievous had started, a fight which he began by (drumroll please?) removing his robe.


White clones with the black antenna can be seen when Yoda's Gunship lands on Coruscant.
Wait, what? When!?


Chancellor Palpatine... The handcuffs were on the chair...

Actually, when Grievous re-captured him (post-ray-shields), he was put in binders like the toy has.


Eeth Koth (the light-skinned Zabrac featured in EpOne & AOTC)
Actually, Eeth Koth was only in TPM. When the newer actor replaced him in AOTC, he looked so markedly different, that they considered him a new character and called him Agen Kolar (Source: The official site databanks).

It is also worth mention that the Jedi Council packs use the PM Eeth Koth figure as Agen Kolar, then later used just his head to make Eeth Koth. I kinda pretend Agen Kolar doesn't exist. He only had a blue blade in ROTS so that he was different from Eeth Koth, who had green. The toy royally blundered that one, effectly destroying their individuality, aside from skin tone.

What a wacky world!
