    Why did Hasbro wait so long to make her?

    One of those things where nobody had any isea what was going on in Habro's head.

    It was worth the wait. I finally picked up Luke's grandma just the other day. It's a neat piece!

    She's a great figure, other then her head. For someone that is so nicely tanned in the movie, the figure looks like she's as pale as an albino.

    They really dropped the ball on the color of plastic they used, she needed a more bronze flesh tone, not pale. Still, a great figure that deserved to be made along time ago.

    Yes Shimi Skywalker is a nice fig, too bad they took so long in making her though...

    Actually, she was planned in late 1999, but retailers (y'know Wal-Mart, KB, TRU) told Hasbro that they refused to order any more waves with non-Amidala female characters. They blamed the sudden halt of Ep1 sales on too many minor female characters and not enough resculpts of core characters.

    "To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence… When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up." - C.S. Lewis

    Because they were too busy making resculpts of OB1, Qui-Gon, D. Maul, and Anakin.

    Yeah, it wasn't just the fact that they refused to order anymore waves with Non-Amidala female charecters. They also refused to order any more waves with Gungans or Neimodians either.

    Which is the reason that we didnt Lott Dod, Holo Nute Gunray, or the Gungan Warrior in the E1 line, luckily we later got the Gungan Warrior as well as Shmi Skywalker in POTJ. Still waiting and praying for more Gungans, more Neimodians, and more anything....but re-sculpts.
