EU 12" anyone?
Notice u have not come out with any 12" for EU characters. I think its time you should release a figure or two. I have a few on my mind now and hope you can give a tot to them :
1. Mara Jade
Many collectors are customising this baby and this shows that she's in popular demand. So, in a business point of view, this fig will make you money and it justify making :)
2. Grand Admiral Thrawn
He is the man the remnants of the Empire rely on to take back past glories. Person of his status demands a 12" fig.
In the book, she's said to be BEAUTIFUL!! So I want to see her 12" fig. Guys collectors will be queing for her and again in a business point of view, she's a money spinner :)
Pls give them serious thoughts and I assure you I'll be your first customer if these are to be made :cool:
I'd like to see Xixor, Jacen Solo, Jaina Solo, and Anakin Solo 12" figures.
While I usually despise EU, I would really like to see figures based on the Han Solo trilogy by AC Crispin, namely:
1. Youn Han Solo
2. Bria Tharen
3. Muuurgh (about 18" tall)
Of course 3 3/4" scale would be fine, I'm not picky.;)
I'm not a fan of EU, but I could see many 12" figures selling successfully.
Once the films are completed, it might be cool to see Anakin's descendents.
"Dark Forces 2: Jedi Knight" figures, Kyle Katarn, Jan Orrs, and the Dark Jedi of the game.
Though I do not despise the Expanded Universe per se, I do not desire the characters that I consider apocryphal. I am something of a Star Wars purist at times (the axiom "If it ain't on the page it ain't on the stage" applies here). For my money if something does not appear in one of the four (soon to be five) films or the requesite "Special Editions" of the original three, it has no place in my collection.
This does not mean I begrudge the Expanded Universe to those who are enamoured with the novels and games or those who have to have every single figure. Instead, my concern is that for every EU Qui-Gon or Mara Jade that is produced, a character like General Dodonna or Yaddle, or a much needed resculpt like R5-D4 or Lobot, goes unproduced.
Give the Expanded Universe its own imprint again and keep them out of the POTJ line. What two MOVIE characters could have been given the action figure treatment if "Cold Weather" Obi-Wan and "Jedi Training" Qui-Gon had not been produced?
And speaking of resculpts, see my upcoming "Resculpt Roundup" post coming soon.
I'd also really like to see a 12" Clone Emperror and a 12" Winter.
I'd love to see a 12" Kyle and Mara!!! That would be awesome!
...and don't kill me, but I kinda would like to see the new Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon and Maul EU figures done in the 12" mode. I LOVE the concept art!!!!
I would like to add,
The green really don't quite seems readable on a grey background ;)
