A list of the upcoming battlepacks has been announced, one of them is called "Holocron".

I am trying to picture what would be in this pack, and I can only think of the Jedi Library. Maybe an old Obi, the Library droids and maybe a suprise Jocasta? I would personally be astonished for us to have not seen or heard of such a figure in advance, but who knows?

I think sneeking in a new mold in a battle pack is a good way to avoid obvious pegwarmers and sell it to an audience that wouldn't purchase it otherwise.

I have always dreamed for an "Assasination on Mustafar" battle pack with an old Anakin, old Battle droid, old (San Hill, Wat Tambor, Shui Mai, Poggle the Lesser, whatever) and a new ROTS Nute Gunray mold.

The first episode of season 2 is Holocron Heist, so I bet the pack will have Cad Bane, Anakin, Ahsoka, and a droid or clone or something like that.

I'm not exactly clamoring for Jocasta, but I do want her and think she should be made. Given that we're only likely to see one in a five year period, if more than one, period, if she's made in Clone Wars style first, I'll be (synonyms for) urinated as hades! :mad:

As will I. Jocasta Nu needs to get the AOTC figure, NOT the animated version...while it's great to see her in the series, Jocasta Nu should be made in the Legacy Collection, before anything else.

Since Hasbro keeps saying TCW is more for kids and LC is for collectors, I have to think they'd do a realistic one. I'd be extremely surprised to see both, or just a TCW one.

Looking at how GREAT sales were for Breha Organa -- Princess Leia's adopted mom and a character with actual screen time (albeit seconds) -- sales for this old lady librarian with no screen time ought to be phenomenal.:rolleyes:

If Nu becomes a figure and said figure becomes a pegwarmer, I'm gonna hold you solely responsible, GeonosisJedi.

While sales for Breha were horrible as you stated, Jocasta Nu did have more screentime, and was essentially at the center of an entire seen.

If she is released with a lightsaber, in more limited numbers (no re-releasing like Yarna), and along with the fact that she will be making an appearance in The Clone Wars and become more familiar with kids, than I think Jocasta will sell better than you think...

While I agree that Jocasta would almost certainly be a poor seller she did have screentime and more than Breha Organa at that. I'm puzzled where you got this idea - perhaps a fan edit of AOTC with all the pointless scenes cut out?

If you took the IMAX cut of AOTC (which was never released except to IMAX theaters, but cut a lot of the cheesy love story, droid factory silliness, and Senate scenes) and restored some of the Senate scenes that explained what was going on, it would give AOTC at least one extra star, making it only the second weakest film of the saga, and putting it closer to being on par with the Ewok movies.

Do you think Roa the oat meal man would've done Jocasta Nu as a youth? Or is that even gross in the Star Wars universe?

I look foward to the final voting soon....maybe Jocasta Nu can still pull it off!

I'm thinking she'll get in there as a figure, but I she will be animated style at first because that's her most recent appearance.
Notice that your certain background favorite figures are not done or re-issued in the Legacy line if there is an animated counterpart?
For instance when's the last time you've seen a realistic Dooku, Aayla, etc. competing for attention on the pegs?
It's almost as if you really don't want your favorites appearing in Clone Wars because you might have to wait a little while to get them realistic.

Though I'd like to see her in action, I would rather have a Legacy Barris Offee before an animated one. Maybe she's planned for an appearance in Clone Wars is why we get kinda cryptic answers regarding her.

But they're still releasing realistic Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Plo Koon figures, among others. They said recently that Jocasta Nu's ranking in the polls was surprising since they don't think she'll do well. I have to think they'd put her in the realistic line, since even from her appearance in the show, she's still a very collector-focused kind of character.

I think they should do the realistic live-action show about Jocasta Nu. They could hire the same actress and say that somehow she survives Order 66 and instead of laying low, decides to take on the galaxy's bounty hunters and punch them all in the face!

Maybe in one episode she catches up to young Boba and she hits him so hard he has to put on his daddy's helmet to cover up the bruises.

Can you guys imagine how awesome that would be?

Is anyone reading this taking me seriously? :D

Where did you hear Hasbro say that about the polls? I'm glad they're acknowledging her strong showing.

I hope you're right about what you said though...seeing an animated version after strong support for a realistic one would be dissapointing, even though Jocasta was beast in The Holocron Heist...

Some of these characters are important to diorama builders and should be brought out in some way or another.

The figures would be all-new sculpts (Jocasta Nu for the obvious example).

Making the diorama itself as a battle pack might be a way to do this.

Unfortunately, that would mean 3 or so figures we already have, plus the new one.

How about the Jedi Library with Jocasta Nu, Obi-Wan (AOTC with soft cloak), a youngling, Dooku statue bust, and maybe a re-pack of one of the Target-exclusive-only Jedi for another "library user?"

Other figures like Kitster and Wald (unless done as a carded two-pack) could be put in the battle pack format: Kitster, Wald Shmi, Anakin, Qui-Gon? Or alternate in a TPM C-3PO for one of the other repacks. But these E1 character repacks are all no-longer-available at the present moment anyway.

Wilrow Hood could have come with Lando, a stormtrooper, a Bespin Guard variant, Leia Bespin Escape, or all-of-the-above.

However, as a diorama builder with no real interest in the CHARACTER of Willrow Hood, I'll be using him to populate not only Cloud City, but Coruscant as well.

I used to do customs. In fact before they made them, I made Kir Karnos and Carnor Jax.

But I really prefer the "official" figures.

I wonder if the fringe and EU characters I like aggravate people because:

1) they could pegwarm and "bring down the line"
2) the collectors are completists and only want their own interests served
3) someone wants to quit, but not without "the perfect" name-a-resculpt

However, I think we have more in common than you think because:

1) I too don't want pegwarming stagnation
2) I want my diorama interests served - it's no different in principal
3) I could quit, but want my scenes fulfilled first (with the obscure)

In case anyone missed it, there's a great answer in this month's Q&A over at Galactic Hunter (http://www.galactichunter.com/absolutenm/templates/full_article_template_1.asp?articleid=8564&zoneid=2)....

Galactic Hunter: You the team, the Boss Man, whoever draws the short straw on Q&A day yes, you! You get to black-ball just one character from ever reaching figural form. Who is it, and why? [Note: Vehicles and beasts do not count.]

HASBRO: If we had our way, it would be Jocasta Nu. The idea of this character, with her haughty attitude and http://www.galactichunter.com/absolutenm/articlefiles/8564-prune.jpgdismissive airs, just does not appeal to us and we have concerns that she will be popular enough to justify her plastic existence if we did do her. However, we have cast out fate to the wind on this one, and the fate of Jocastu Nu, along with a few other figures of dubious worth, are firmly in the grasp of the collecting public, at least through November 30th. As a reminder, fans should go to WizardUniverse.com (http://www.innovativenethelp.com/wizard/tf_sw/index.php) and vote on which figure they want to see make its way to the line.
[Editor's Note: Agreed very strongly. She's a nasty, old bitty. It would cost more to destroy all of the surplus Jocasta Nu figures that would warm the pegs until we all die from the Mayan/Aztec Calendar in 2012. Above left is a shriveled, old prune that Jocasta Nu fans can use as a stand-in.]

DON'T put her on the pegs as a single carded figure! That would be a disaster!

By the way, I am totally against this figure, but if they are going to make her, don't put her in the Legacy line!

I'd still like to have her. I really don't see why a pack of Jedi, sold as an exclusive, maybe including Sarissa Jeng (mostly re-used parts), Jocasta Nu (entirely new sculpt), Barriss Offee (entirely new sculpt... but this one could get some mileage as a Legends re-release down the road), maybe Sha'Gai (mostly re-used parts), couldn't be a possibility.

I mean it has only been four + years since ROTS. It would be totally unreasonable for this plot-centric character with speaking lines to have a figure made.

Instead Hasbro offers the community Willrow Hood and Malakili Redux. It might have been more effiecent for me to mail Hasbro $14.92 and they could send me a box that when I opened it, a hand jumps out and slaps me in the face.

I voted for Jocasta out of spite. I also like Librarians and sassy old women, but mostly bitter, bitter, spite.

I'm not against making any unproduced figure, but I am against releasing them in a way that might damage the line. I think they should release the most popular 3 Fans Choice figures in a single scene pack. Putting them on single cards is too risky.

Primary Niemoidians that have NO figure are both from TPM: Tey How, who's most notably different, and Capt. Daultry Dofine "the stunted slime."

Nute does need a ROTS sculpt, too. He might sell better because of his continued appearance in the CW cartoon show. However, that just begs an animated figure of him - which I'd also want.

Here's an idea: how about Flashback Jocasta Nu? It could be a figure based on her from when she was 16. And, of course, like all good female EU Jedi, she'd be dressed like a streetwalker.

Maybe she could come in a 2-pack with young Jira, from when she won the Miss Tatooine pageant and was abducted by Jango Fett's grandfather, the notorious Merle Fett, and young Jocasta saved her from being sold to Zorba the Hutt (who wanted to make her a third birthday present for his son Jabba)!!


By god I like it! Hasbro should so do this! Theyd make hundereds, maybe even THOUSANDS of dollars off that! I hope they roll with it!

I would buy the Neimoidians, they are all on my wish lists just not as high up. I don't really understand why the Neimoidian warrior pegwarmed to the extent it did, but the ones in gowns I think it's easy to see why they sat. Plus none of them came with any sort of weapon even though some of them had hands that could hold them.

But Mtriv73 is right: they haven't made her Jedi Starfighter yet. That's not fair. All the other Jedi have Jedi Starfighters.

Like Obi-Wan's hyperspace ring, Jocasta's should come with an accessory, too. I'd think an anti-grav sled library cart that gets towed behind the ship would be nice.

And instead of the requisite Jedi starfighter headset piece that Obi-Wan and Anakin pilot figures come with, Jocasta should have a pair of those giant dark glasses that old people wear while driving! Oh man, that would make her THE most classic action figure Hasbro has made since a fat guy with a bubble-tummy running with an Ice Cream Maker.

While the results of the Fan's Choice Poll are overly dissapointing (Bastila is an easy pass for me), I am pleased to see that Jocasta Nu placed second place.

It has been great to see her gain so much support, and I hope that Hasbro will finally make her in the near future.

I do feel kind of shortchanged by Hasbro, as Bastila was basically in the works to begin with...the same happened in 06 with Quinlan Vos, so they moved down the crown to Revan.

Interesting that the same did not occur here when the runner-up is someone Hasbro has refused to make...

Of those, Anor is coming in spring comic pack (prototype pictured), Padme would probably never be: and Anakin Solo and Bastilla Shan, one would come in 2010 and the other was definitely forthcoming soon after.

Now I realize waves have been rearranged, but that doesn't change the fact that Bastilla was basicly confirmed as forthcoming, although not placed in a specific date or wave yet...

This is actually even more confirmation than Vos got...

Therefore, I really feel cheated. And I think Hasbro owes us an explanation on that and why the runner up isn't getting a figure made since the winner was already planned...

(maybe Hasbro didn't realize ToyFare mag let us know about that juicy bit of info back in August...)

I think these results really smack of another one of those QnA "fake" answers, what a scam!

How is it a scam They said they didn't want to make Jocasta Nu and wouldn't make her unless she won. They bascially TOLD people to vote like crazy for her and gave her an unfair boost that other characters (except maybe Jaxxon) didn't get.

They promised they would make the winner, not whichever figure on the list ranked the hightest that they didn't otherwise plan to make.

Last time they already planned to make the winner and WANTED to make the runner up so they did as a treat for the fans. That doesn't bind them to do that in the future.

By that logic they really shouldn't allow any figure they already have planned to be in the voting at all, which would tip off who they plan to make before they're willing to announce it.

Given that this site confirmed ballot box stuffing for Jocasta and still allowed her on the list she had every opportunity to win.

I can appreciate wanting the figure - I wanted Yarna - but I don't see how there is anything unfair about this. I don't want the winner or ranked runners up, but it isn't Hasbro's fault my characters didn't win!

I'm not really that bothered either way as I didn't vote for her, but I'd possibly buy her if they did make her. My choice didn't fare that well, but looks like none of the OT did. I'm still hoping Hasbro will recognise that there is still a market for them out there though.

I'm not happy with the top 5 at all, it seems clear people multi-voted to get those characters up there. I myself voted a mere once for Taym Dren Garen :pleased:

Buuut anyway, I'm not too annoyed about it because I'm sure Hasbro will use the whole list to determine figure choices in the next 2 years or so.

I'm going through my boxes of figures in storage and taking inventory for my dioramas. Along the way I'm noting what I could use for figures they don't make.

Thus far I've only really dealt with some of my prequel scenes. It yeilded this list:

TPM:

Ann Gella
Tan Gella
Kitster
Wald


AOTC:

Cliegg Lars
Sentor Tiikes (Quarren of Mon Calamari)

I think the above are amongst the figures I could most appreciate. There are more of course. I only covered Tatooine, Geonosis, Utopau, and Mustafar thus far.

If Hasbro has any brains they will see this. Too bad the selfish have to ruin it for others.

While I like Jaxxon, there's no way he should have beat out the movie character Cliegg.

It was fun at the time, and aside from trying to get CW cartoon characters on the ballot to no avail, I could see it was going to go to a worse case scenario fairly early on.

I don't hate her. And I would buy her figure if they made it. But she's not anywhere near the top of my list, and I won't be heartbroken if they never get to her.

However, there are a few aspects to this issue. For one, Hasbro has said that, if she were produced, they don't think she would sell to a broad audience and would further damage the already-fragile line, and thus they don't want to produce her. Many people accepted this and moved on.

Other people - very, very few other people - took this as a challenge and pushed for her to be made, registering at multiple sites to drum up nonexistent support and likely voting for her multiple times. It seems like there's a few people who want her a lot, but not a lot of people who want her in general.

This angered other collectors who wanted other figures made - ones that they thought were more deserving or more interesting. Hasbro has said that making Jocasta Nu would hurt the line, and most people don't want to do that. This has caused, I believe, some backlash against a character who wasn't ever very popular to begin with. She's a cranky, close-minded old bat; a librarian is not the most interesting character they can make. When people see a few collectors pushing hard for Jocasta Nu, they want to push back.

I suppose, though, it's not too different from other times Hasbro has said they don't want to make a figure. Just about every time, this made collectors ask for that figure even more, to show that there was indeed support - we've seen this with Yarna, Willrow Hood, funeral pyre Vader, and perhaps most famously, the Tonnikas (though now most people are hopefully aware of the situation there).

I think it's a generational thing, Prequels vs. Original Trilogy.

I bought Willrow without giving it too much thought. I like OT background characters... even chubby dudes in orange jumpsuits with too much Soul Glow and a cheesy prop.

Conversely, I never even gave Jeremoch Colton a chance in Hades. This is a guy who pilots something important in ROTS, I guess. He's got a blue suit, and a blaster. He definitely had a bigger role in his film than Willrow had in his. But I'll never buy Colton, mainly 'cause PT background characters don't remotely excite me any more. Same for Jocasta Nun. I have no sentimental attachment to her, like I do to OT background characters. I'll buy another Willrow before I buy 1 Jocasta. And I don't plan on buying another Willrow.

I like to think most others who oppose a figure of Jocasta are of similar mind... sentimental old fools for the OT, like me.:D

However, now that he is made, we can forget about him. He's in my collection; but I really don't care about him one way or the other. With the exception of Imperials and Rebel Pilots, humans were always the most boring characters to me as a kid.

Yeah, I would agree with this. I can think of several Jabba's Palace characters and even a few Skiff/Sail Barge Guards that I really don't want to see made into action figure form. They're the human characters, for the most part, along with a few of the recycled ANH aliens.

For me, I choose background characters that I want made into action figures based on the following criteria:

1. It MUST be a character designed for a Star Wars movie or television program released prior to 1987. Any Prequel or Clone Wars exceptions to this rule are dealt with on a case by case basis using the next five steps...

2. Is he a cool looking alien? - this is the most important factor, as the alien characters trump all else in the Star Wars universe.

3. Will the character translate well into action figure form? - alien characters that can be super-articulated are preferred over aliens that would only be able to stand around and fill a diorama. In other words, would this be a fun figure to play with outside in the dirt?

4. Is it an aggressive, action-oriented character? - I tend to prefer the tough-guy aliens who look like formidable fighters. Cute is only acceptable for Ewoks, pretty is only acceptable for Twilek chicks.

5. If the character is human, is he a pilot or an Imperial? - humans are fine as long as they are wearing cool uniforms or have lots of high-tech looking gear.

6. If the character is female and not Princess Leia, does she at least look a little bit sleezy? - virtuous women = boring action figures.;)

So, I definitely don't fall into the "one figure for every onscreen character" club. Also, relevance to the plot and actual screen time are not important as long as all six of the requirements above are met.

True, but I've always liked Sassy (no real idea why), and am currently promoting a lost cause that involves his Saga Legends action figure.:D

And hey, Sassy was one of the legendary Three Wusses Who Got Served By Sidious (TWWGSBS), so he's got a much, much larger place in the PT than Jocasta Nu.

I could accept a Jocasta Nu if she was legitimate, but as we all know, she got her votes illegitimately. Therefore she should be disqualified.
I have no problem with buying one of her figure, but the stuffing for Toyfare poll has given her an infamous reputation as a figure to be made.

See what you did. In your haste to get her made, you blasphemed and shamed her. Way to go! Now you will suffer and never get what you desire the most! :whip: ;)

They are nixing her and saying it would hurt the line, which she could, but we all suspect the real reason she won't get made now. Wait another five years and she might get the Ice Cream Maker Guy treatment... a figure that I rather like now that I have him.

I would consider just about anyone made from these scenes a priority, humans included. Some would be more exciting than others but anything that fills the diorama.....

1. It MUST be a character designed for a Star Wars movie or television program released prior to 1987. Any Prequel or Clone Wars exceptions to this rule are dealt with on a case by case basis using the next five steps...

I agree with this. The prequels are just too ridiculously full to ever have a hope of literally completing a scene like you almost can with the OT. A lack of an overall nostalgiac factor means that I would never push for an obscure PT character to be made like I would the OT. And anything outside the films really doesn't count at all to me unless a figure could potentially pass for an OT-esque backgrounder who would never be made otherwise. The Talon Kaarde figure kinda looks like someone you'd see walking around Mos Eisley for example so I would have bought him had I seen him.


2. Is he a cool looking alien? - this is the most important factor, as the alien characters trump all else in the Star Wars universe.

They may be more interesting in appearance but at the same time I don't want a collection in which the only humans are the main characters. Humans are as much part of the diversity of the Star Wars universe as an alien.


3. Will the character translate well into action figure form? - alien characters that can be super-articulated are preferred over aliens that would only be able to stand around and fill a diorama. In other words, would this be a fun figure to play with outside in the dirt?

Since I don't play with my figures I don't really care how 'playable with' they are. I'm perfectly happy to have any figure that will merely help fill a diorama as long as its a diorama I am interested in creating based off a worthy scene. The Jedi Library with all of its, what, 3 characters (unusual restraint though from Lucas!!) is not a worthy scene unless you actually build the library itself and even then it'd be a very empty diorama - if you're to be scene accurate about it.


4. Is it an aggressive, action-oriented character? - I tend to prefer the tough-guy aliens who look like formidable fighters. Cute is only acceptable for Ewoks, pretty is only acceptable for Twilek chicks.

This looks like it ties into the 'playability' factor. Again, while those are obviously more exciting I don't object to them mixing it up a bit with the more passive looking characters since those kinds of characters, if left to last, would likely never end up being made. And yeah for the sake of completing those scenes that I'm interested in this would slightly bother me inasmuch as not having a plastic figure of a superobscure star wars character can.


5. If the character is human, is he a pilot or an Imperial? - humans are fine as long as they are wearing cool uniforms or have lots of high-tech looking gear.

OK but the lack of diversity would be kinda annoying to me. ALL humans are military or at least pilots? Thats not how it is in Star Wars. Its hypocritical I guess but I don't care about any PT or EU plain humans but my OT devotion is such that I'd take any. I won't go mental if Hasbro keep ignoring the contingent of human hanger-ons in Jabbas palace, it'd be understandable, but I'd happily buy them if made because it wasn't ALL aliens and Luke.


6. If the character is female and not Princess Leia, does she at least look a little bit sleezy? - virtuous women = boring action figures.;)

I guess I just don't define 'boring' in the same sense that some of you guys do. Again I don't play with my figures so I don't require that they have 40 POA or that they kicked *** in the film. I'm a diorama guy and particularly with regard to the OT 'Boring' characters are as at home in my diorama as the aliens. I'll pick them up and look at them, rearrange them but ultimately they'll just stand in a diorama. I'm fine with that.

Yarna (peg warmed), The Organas (peg warmed), Willrow Hood (after initial excitement for the droid part dies), Jocasta Nu will eventually all peg warm. Ask Hasbro about Legacy sales. I'm waiting to see how long Malaki (sp) peg warms comparted to his PotF2 version, because even at 98 cents, that guy didn't move.

The system was broke, but if a small group had the lack of life to write a bot or just sit there and press a button, you obviously care way to much about this and need some other help/aspect to your life. Full disclosure, I did vote 5 times for Pelleon, but after 40 seconds, I had to go back to work and just sort of forgot about the whole thing.

I'm going to go back and look over the 10 ten from the various sites. The top 5 don't often appear at the top, but they do appear on a plurality of lists. The top of the lists vary widely from site to site. So it could end up being a track/wrestling meet thing where things at middle to bottom for being consistent, end up being rewarded, and the characters who feasted or famined by being named or not didn't do as well. The only two that make sense on where they appear is Shan and Nu. Cliegg Lars, if the plurality of sites submitting him, should've shown higher. Some EU figs had high support going in, much higher than some movie figures.

For anyone hoping for an animated Jocasta Nu, don't get your hopes up (and furthermore, please don't beg for one). This is from Jedi Temple Archives (http://www.jeditemplearchives.com/content/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=5785/#details):

Q. Questions about everyone's favorite Jedi librarian seem to be on the rise. Especially since Jocasta Nu made the top five for ToyFare's online poll for this year's Fan Choice Figure Poll. But we've also seen comments from Hasbro to the effect that "an old lady librarian" might not go over well with the figure buying fanbase. And Jocasta Nu's dismissive attitude scene in ATTACK OF THE CLONES led to mixed feelings from some about the character.

But fast forward to the debut episode of season 2 of STAR WARS - THE CLONE WARS. And Jocasta Nu is back in the mix, albeit not quite herself. In the episode (sorry, we don't mean to spoil but the episode debuted on October 2nd) bounty hunter Cato Parasitti shapeshifted into Jocasta Nu, to the point where she even had a lightsaber duel with Ahsoka Tano while still disguised as the Jedi librarian. Given this scene's departure from Jocasta Nu's matronly demeanor, might we at the very least see a Clone Wars rendition of Jocasta Nu at some point?

A. Clone Wars is first and foremost a kid-targeted line, so this is the last place where we would do a figure of Jocasta Nu. As for Legacy, despite her showing in the poll, we believe that she would really struggle as a figure. We'll learn a lot of Willrow Hood on whether the fans' choice results can translate into solid support for obscure figures like this.
I've hardly seen Willrow Hood at all, who seems to have been produced in even fewer numbers than the ROTJ wave (as Malakili is still saying hello from many store pegs). So, who knows.

Interesting, since Willrow wasn't a Fan's Choice figure, as they imply.

Well, he was on the last ToyFare list, albeit pretty far down on it.

Plus, he never would have been on Hasbro's radar if not for fans.

But there's a difference between a semi-joke campaign to get the most obscure, ridiculous character imaginable and an official voting campaign sponsored by Hasbro.

The result is the same. It's a figure that enough people were vocal enough about to make it get noticed. It's a figure they probably would never have come with.

Hasbro answered yet another variation:


ECHO BASE FORUMS: After her recent appearance in "Holocron Heist" and her second place finish in the Toyfare Fans' Choice Poll, would you say that everyone's favorite Jedi librarian has a pretty good chance of being released? Also, if you were to release Madame Jocasta Nu, would it be in the animated line or the realistic line?

HASBRO: Jocastu Nu remains out of any of our lineups. Despite her appearance in the show, we remained convinced that she would be a figure for whom actual demand would be very low. If we eventually did add her to the line, it would not be in the kid-focused Clone Wars line but would be as part of the realistic, Legacy-style line.

HEHEHEHEHEHE...she will never be made. End of story. Sorry for those who wanted her, but there are sooooo many other figures I would buy that could take her spot in a wave.

We actually need 4 Jocasta Nu figures: realistic and animated, 2 with soft-goods so you can recreate the action of her sitting down in the library!
