This guy flat out scares me. I don't think I'll collect him, he looks just like those ugly aliens with the big eyes that anal probe cows, pigs and Cartman. No thanks, those eyes freak me out big time. :eek: :eek:

I think they look cool, they remind me of Yarael Poof.

Yes he does, that guy kinda freaked me out too, except his eyes weren't quite as big, plus wasn't his head a bit smaller too? One thing just in case I do decide to collect him;) (Taun We that is)when is he due to hit the shelves?

Lucasfilm restricted the use of the Kaminoans in marketing, but there's an image of Lama Su on the soundtrack display, so I doubt there's anything holding back his release. However, I really feel that Taun We would be great in the same wave as Palpatine and Dooku.

The Kaminoans are actually modified off the super-mechs in AI, and, if done correctly, should hopefully have some minor translucency. I've given up hoping for a 'glow in the dark' effect, unless they use the same material used for Vader (Wrath).

Obi-Wan: "Wow, really?"
Taun We: "Yes, we have several celebrities here, especially some Richard guy, he's such a droofus."

derek, this figure looks to actually be the same height as the bubble. her skirt doesn't go all the way to her feet which appear to be sitting on the bottom of the bubble as her head is touching the top. meaning that Taun We is roughly the same height as Chewbacca mechanic? She's certainly taller than most of the other figures who seem to sit in the middle of the bubbles with loads of room above and below. Looks like Kaminoans have two toes. And three digits. I like this figure. It's a bit different. I like the design on Lama Su better though. he's got a funky space suit outfit. Shame we have to wait for him.

jargo,

you're correct. it does look like he fills the whole bubble up after i look at it again. i guess they are so skinny it kind of looks smaller:)

It's not that Lucas didn't want them on the market, he wanted to keep Kamino and the look of the aliens there pretty much a secret. So Hasbro and other merchandising companies were told to not show the figure at Toy Fair. The same thing also occured with Dexter Jettster. Since they were CGI aliens, their look was kept pretty quiet, until renderings were done, and then info started to leak. Other then the leaks, there has only been 1 official Lucasfilm picture of them, and it was a headshot of Lama Su, that I believe showed up in Variety Fair. :)

Here is a good loose picture of Taun We that Rebelscum posted just a little while ago. She looks pretty good, but I wish that they would have released Lama Su in the same assortment. :(

It looks to have the same kind of arm attachment as Gasgano, which isn't a good thing. I really hope I'm mistaken.

I want a side view. If there's no head-fin, then it's not really a Kaminoan at all. :(


And I did think "Gasgano" as soon as I saw this picture...hmmmm.

Taun We has black patches on her shoulders. The figure looks like it has regular arm joints to me, just thin and weak looking. If she had gasgano joints the black patches would be inside the arms not on the outside and slightly bumpy. it's possible that the arms aren't strong and will pop out but i think it's a different type of joint than Gasgano. here's a comparison pic of a still from the movie and a pic of the figure...

And she's wearing a skull cap so her fin is flattened. Otherwise it would be sticking up as expected. :)

Thanks for the comparison pics, as well as a side view of Miss Taun We from the movie Jargo. That explains the black patches, I'm so glad they didn't turn out to be a bad joint. And if they are part of the arm joint, atleast it's still movie accurate. Now Hasbro, I only have 1 question....where is Lama Su. :)
