Now that they are making the very cool Ephant Mon would you want them to do a Hermi Odle figure. I think it would be very cool check out the link if you don't know what he looks like or who he is.

If the upcoming Ephant Mon is as detailed and balanced as it appears, then I would welcome Hermi as quickly as humanly possible.


And with the frenzy over "bloody" figures lately, this guy would satisfy every need. :D

Of course, he's a weird looking alien so bring him on. Actually, he's been a often requested figure around here for a while. Along with Ephant Mon and Amanaman, who both we finally got. Hopefully Hasbro will answer the call for both Hermi and Yarna D'al Gargan soon. :)

Yeah, sure why not. I hope they eventually make all of the characters that were in Jabba's palace and the Mos Eisley Cantina. I just got "Star Wars Chronicles." It is a book that has pictures of everything, its great. I was thinking about using it to compile a list to see how many more figures Hasbro would need to make to complete these 2 scenes.

I'm in for a Hermi Odle figure. He's a giant bag of drooling meat, how could you not want him?;)

Beast

Rogue II, that list would be as follows:

Cantina:
Arleil Schous (Shistavanen Wolfman)
Baniss Keeg (Duros)
Bom Vimdim
Braniac
Dannick Jerricko
Dice Ibegon
Elis Helrot
Feltipern Trevagg
Hem Dazon
Het Nkik (Jawa)
Hrchek Kal Fas
Tonnika Sisters
Leesub Sirln
Lirin Car'n (Bith Modal Nodes back up player)
M'iiyoom Onith
Melas
Myo
Reegesk
Sai'torr Kal Fas
Solomahal
Swilla Corey
Trinto Duaba
Tzizvvt
Unut Poll (same species as Hem Dazon)
Yerka Mig

I'm trying to dig one up for Jabba's Palace, it's harder to find names for everyone. This list was posted previously by SithDroid and Lord Tenebrous. I removed Jenny, as she's a cut scene charecter and Kitik Keed'Kak as she's coming. :)

Hell yeah! hermi is just a big hunk of character. I always go for the biggest figures first and they don't come much bigger than Hermi... well, technicaly Jabbas bigger but he's in a class of his own and hermi is next in line :) Gotta get The other half of the matching set now we got Ephant. I was hoping to see Hermi and Yarna in with Ephant as some kind of uglies wave but Hasbro wimped out. Bad Hasbro, naughty Hasbro! :p

But yes, I'd snap a Hermi Odle figure up faster than you can say
I'd - sell - myself - into - slavery - to - get - this - made - as - a - single - carded - figure! :D

Jargo

The dancing girl with white hair that has a blue streak down it is Jess.

you also missed Weeba Weeba the Rancor guard, Fozec Jabba's guard, Herat the fan holding Jawa. Yoxgit the ugnaught. Zutton, Sashatiel (Ishi Tib), SicSix, GaronNas Tal the Bossk looking geezer.

You could also add Ak Rev, Umpass Stay, Rappertunie if you don't mind the SE additions.

Rogue II
06-03-2002, 08:24 PM
Thanks Emperor Jargo. I didn't count Zutton, Ishi Tibb, and the Jawa since there are already figures for them.

I just found the names for those 3 members of Max Rebo's band that you mentioned.

Rogue II
06-03-2002, 09:07 PM
Check out this website. It has a pretty extensive list with pictures.

As I've said in the past: anything from Jabba's palace or the cantina, I'm in for. I want both my displays chock full of stuff, almost no room, ya know what I mean?

End :happy:.

Jargo
06-04-2002, 06:57 AM
Oh yeah, anything from Tatooine is top of my list. The palace is in need of new blood and the cantina is starting to look like there's business happening but could still use a few more regulars. I reckon that hasbro missed an opportunity to do a great new Modal nodes character, they should have released the cantina band member with knees sitting at the Omni box. It's great that the omni box came with him in the fanclub exclusive but he was supposed to be sitting at it. That would have been cool instead of another Greedo in the WalMart exclusive packs

But bring on the aliens, bring on the miscreant humans, bring on the weird beasts and droids. It all makes the collection more lively. I reckon Hasbro should aim to have the palace and cantina completed before the toyline dies again. That'd be quite an achievement wouldn't it? :)

I'd like to see them try.

Lets see:

25 Cantina Figures (not counting the Jawa)
25 Jabba's palace Figures
-3 figures that can be combined because of size
-2 Tonnika sisters that Hasbro said they will never make
____________
45 total characters

I will assume that Hasbro will continue to make the Star Wars line until at least 2006 (release of the DVDs year). So that gives us 2003-2006.

That is roughly 1 figure per month for the next 4 years.

I'd love a Hermi Odle, and while they're at it, please give me a J'QUILLE ALREADY!!! If they only made one more SW figure ever, he would be my choice

Ahh . . . I was hoping for Hermi before Ephant, but having both would be sweeet.

To answer this thread's question: No, I would not want a Hermi Odle figure. Why? Because in my opinion, he's a drooling sack of meat who is nothing more than palace set decor.

Ephant Mon's detail is ten times greater than every other figure. A Hermi would be times greater than Ephant as far as detail. The figure would be amazing. I sure would hope that Hasbro would allow McFarlane make that figure for them. Just kidding.

aharry
06-07-2002, 12:53 AM
Yes, maybe he can come with some extra drool-like accessories.

BillyJAck
06-07-2002, 12:58 AM
they could have plastic detachable drool that hangs out of his mouth.lol would be very cool. But problem with this character is I just don't see how he's suppose to be one of the baddest gangsters in Jabba's Palace. Can he even move?

Of course Hermi has legs:

Beast
06-07-2002, 01:06 AM
Well, Jabba can't move very well either. Doesn't stop him from big bad gangster boss. That's why you have people under you that take care of the dirty work. Besides, according to Starwars.com he was a weapons specialist, helping craft the defenses of Jabba's palace. Don't gotta be super mobile to do that. :)

I don't think too many of our dioramas would be complete without Hermi. So bring him on!

BillyJAck
06-07-2002, 03:03 AM
Maybe this thread should be moved to Dear Hasbro and I'll change the title to We Want a Hermi Odle figure hasbro!!! I think he would win a fan poll easily if he got into the next one but thats probably a year or so away :( so even if they did we wouldn't see a Hermi figure till EP3 comes out....

billyjack
I don't have much faith in Fan Polls any more. My bet is that this last poll will end up being the "Concept Pegwarmer." Granted, all the completists and the people who voted for him will buy it, BUT, how many army/diorama builders will purchace them?

DEATH TO THE FANS' CHOICE POLL! (Well, its current format at least)

Well, I hope Hermi gets made eventually. Until then, I might have to get a pile of play-doh to stand in for him.

Jargo
06-07-2002, 07:13 AM
JT, you got it wrong - Hermi looks like a bludgeoned, tuskless walrus carcass left to rot out on the ice drifts.

If you are the weapons and security systems guy for a major crimelord, you're going to be putting in place booby traps and motion triggered explosive and projectile devices to keep your boss safe. Those kind of devices need you to have a slow pace and a steady hand to install carefully and avoid being caught in them yourself. The last thing you want when you set up stuff like that is someone wizzing around like they just took something illegal or sat drinking coke all day.

Hermi is cool, he may be possibly the ugliest alien in the saga which marks him out as being remarkable and he should be made for that reason alone.

I'll buy 3 or 4 Hermi Odles!!!!

0 Sketchtroopers.


Package Hermi along with Gen. Rieekan and an Imperial Dignitary in a "why did they wait so long" set....

And release 6 "why did they wait so long" sets each year, using Hermi's face on the packaging like the Vader face on POTJ toys, with an Imperial Dignitary in place of young Obi-Wan's picture....

I couldn't give a fart about this guy's EU background, he's a do-nothing standing-set-decor "character" in the movie and when I responded to this thread, it was with complete honesty, NO I would not want this figure. I could just as easily take some brown and green playdoh, roll it together into a hideous color and stand it in the middle of my Jabba's Palace figures and project my imagination onto it. That doesn't mean YOU should not want it, that only means that I don't want it. :)

Jargo
06-08-2002, 08:23 AM
I know. Like I've known for the longest time. Like I know every time you say that. Sheesh we're getting predictable in our posts. ;)

I like the idea of the 'why did they wait so long' packages. Hermi, Yarna D'al Gargan, Imperial dignitary, Captain Antilles, General madine, Admiral Ozzel, General Rieeken, Chief Chirpa, Romba, Warok, Lumat, Female Ewok with wokling, Moff Jerjerrod, A-wing pilot with removable3 helmet, human B-wing pilot with removable helmet, Hem Dazon, Wioslea...... Basically they all should be packaged that way unless it's a resculpt of something we already got.
