    new 12" Obi-Wan, Garindan & Jawas!

    Check 'em out in SSG's SDCC coverage: http://www.sirstevesguide.com/photo/...ry.php?cat=662

    Obi-Wan's head sculpt, clothes, and saber look really nice, but the body looks like an old HOF body that has high blood pressure.

    The Jawas look ok except for the painted eyes, but more like 2-ups from the 3" figures than anything else, certainly not as good as the 6" AC one from 5 years ago.

    Garindan looks pretty sharp IMO, not a complicated body or costume, but head and comm unit accessory look top notch.

    Hey! Where did these come from?

    Obi-Wan looks really good I think. I'm pleasantly surprised. As much as I hate the Jedi Luke, I think I will like Obi-Wan.

    I'm not sure about the Jawas. On the one hand I like plastic ... uh huh ... big plastic Jawas sounds like a cool idea. But, It's just not what the 12" line is all about to me. Looks like they're cheaping out with these ... agreed, the old ones seem better. (On that note, I like my Yoda from back then better than this angry and puffy looking new one.)

    Garindan ... super! Such a weird looking character to begin with ... great looking toy. Really looking forward to it.

    i don't think obi-wan has a HOF body, it looks like a classic collection joe body, like the one dooku has, just without the hinged fingers. it's just the prototype.......remember when they showed dooku, his body color was different than his head color?





    .............overall, these 3 figures look good, but who really wants them? i have 3 obi-wan's already, 2 jawas, and don't really care for the long snout guy. .........i'll get him, but i would of preferred something else, like........

    ugggghh. look at those hideous jawas. If I want more I'll just buy a couple more of the potf jawas with the light up eyes and cloth outfit. Those are cartoonish and ridiculous! :P I'm beginning to think Hasbro isn't cheap, they're just insane .

    New 12" Figures

    Anyone notice the difference in color on Obi-Wan's hands compared to his face, just plain awful quality control IMO.
    THANKS FOR THE AT-TE & FALCON HASBRO. NOW IT'S TIME FOR A LARGE TANTIVE IV!

    Which is why for me it's always gonna be an "I'll wait and see what it looks like in the store" kind of deal.

    Mmm, maybe me ... for whatever reason, I've taken a pass on every other Obi-Wan. If this one looks solid once it's released, I may buy it.

    That Obi-wan's great. It actually looks like Guinness. I'll junk my old one for that one!

    The Snoot is cool. Aliens are always my fave.

    Plastic Jawas? No.

    Garindan is gonna end up going the way of either Skiff Lando or the Ewoks - low production/early cancellation or 1 per case. Get ready to pay ridiculous prices for this one.

    Not really down with the new Jawas...

    As a fan of the little Jawas, I was a little disappointed with the new ones. It really stinks that the entire sculpt was fashioned as if this as from the 3 3/4" line. I also am not a fan other way they did their eyes. It appears, in all of the pictures, that the eyes portrude about a centimetre or so out of the black part. I think these would have been better if the eye had been recessed a bit.

    Oh, well... nice going, Hasblah.
