hasbro must of read my posts regarding this jango fett 12 inch figure. it has no body, because they know i'll throw that away, and i guess i get to paint the head myself. and when they easily could of put this in a regular box, they put it in a big one and double the price. nice going hasBLOW!!

p.s. i know it's a prototype:D

Naboo Qui-Gon mixed with Jedi Duel Qui-Gon possible pose without the articulation and just the pose? With a blue saber? And those stupid energy blasts. I HATEHATEHATE those things! I'm so pleased to know they don't remember the last Qui-Gon figures not selling, and I'm glad to know there will be at least one known Episode 1 traditional peg-warmer on the pegs.

Ok Hasbro did you guys see EP1 Qui-Gon is GONE, DEAD, NOT COMMING BACK, well I guess he might be back, but only as a spirt. But if he does come back as a spirt where the hell was he in the first three real STARWARS movies?

He'll be back as a brief holo-recording with Dooku, but why we needed another one for that is beyond me.


There's word that Qui-Gon will be inserted somehow into Ben's living quarters in ANH, possibly as a holo-photo, with the full six-part trilogy. :) He wasn't in the first three because Liam Neeson was far from being cast. :rolleyes:

With the use of realscan you'd think they'd have done a better face for Qui-Gon! :mad:

Was or is this Qui-Gonn the one that was supposed to go in the cancelled deluxe two-packs?? Qui-Gonn vs Battle Droid and Jar Jar vs Destroyer Droid. They probably couldn't Liam Neeson to get back into the make-up and sit in the chair for the real scan. I.E. $$$$$

hairless chewie,

neeson had his image scanned for E1 so his face could be superimposed on his stunt double. i see no reason why this data couldn't be transferred to the real scan process.

but i don't want another qui-gon figure, ever. i like the guy, but enough is enough.

figures i never want to see made again:

tatooine luke
r2d2
vader
quigon
maul

these guys have been done to death!:cry:

Great jst what we need. Another Qui-Gon to sit in $1.50 bins for the next three years. I guess Hasbtro wants to make absolutely sure that there will be at least a few 100%-certain-to-be-peg-warmers. Hw about a few more E1 Jar Jars and E1 9-yr-old Anakins while you're at it? We get this stupid rehash instead of Yarael Poof, Yaddle, Evan Piel, Oppo Ranciss, Lott Dodd, a cool version of R5D4, General Dodonna, (or fill in the blank with an unmade figure).

I sure hope that he hasn't anymore dialogue in the film. I don't want to hear any more of neesons variations on "corrishunt" on "meaty cleareance", not for ANY reason.
Well, maybe one-I guess it'll be interesting to see him in holo form , cause I've never seen a piece of transparent wood before.Woooooooo!!!

Man, sometime the ignorance and anger in these forums makes me sick to my stomach.

Why another Qui-Gon? Well, let's juts assume that some KID likes Star Wars, and he gets into it with E2. So he sees all the movies, and then goes to the store to look for figures. He's able to buy a Q-G, as well as a Vader, and maybe a Luke.

Is that really so hard to understand?

Don't know if you guys have heard yet, but if you take a close look at that Quiggy, you'll see he's the same one from the E1 era cancelled 2-pk seen here:

As for the Blue saber, well it looks to me like they just gave an old prototype of the 2-pack figure one of the newer metal "force-action" sabers to show him at Toy Fair 2002

I wouldn't worry about the saber, it wouldn't be the first time Hasbro has used a mock-up at Toy Fair. Plenty of things have changed significantly since being shown at TF in the past... sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse.

So, you can put your PotJ Security Droid with this new Quiggy and have the Hasbro 2-pack that wasn't!

Nataku!

speedermike,

the endless resculpts of core characters is a waste. if hasbro wanted to repackage core characters like kenner did with the original line, that would be somewhat acceptable. just slap an episode 1 qui-gon in the new blue packaging. resculpts are a waste when there are so many interesting characters to be done. and by the way, if we all agreed, these forums would be useless.
