    Amanaman the bounty hunter!

    The bio they give on the Deluxe Amanaman is totally stupid. "scours the galaxy hunting for fugitives..."

    What weapon does it use? Has no spot for a holster or anything...I guess it just puts people's eyes out with its giant fingers like the Three Stooges.

    And if it did spot a fugitive how is it going to get there? With those giant 2 left feet it would trip all over itself and give the prey tons of time to smack the giant frog in the head and escape...

    If they said it was "Jabba's Cook" I could believe it...and the skeleton would be the BBQ for his royal fatness.

    We're talking about a character named Amanaman here. Once a character's name repeats itself, I lose pretty much all hope for them (Jar Jar Binks, anyone?) The only exception is when the first and last part of the name is the same, like Obi-Wan Kenobi.

    But back on topic, yes, it's very bad, almost as bad as leaving the Anchorhead Cantina out of Zutton's summary.

    Big yellow slug-like creature. Attracted to pain and death. Really bad body odor.

    Well Amanaman does have a stupid bio, but he's an awesome character and an even cooler action figure.

    The figure is also shorter than I expected him to be. He looks tall in pictures.

    disspointed with Amanaman

    I was rather dissapointed with Amanaman when I got him last month. The sculpt and paint job are nice, and of course this is a character we have been clamoring for but... what justifies him being a deluxe figure, priced at $4 - $6 more than regular figures? Surely not the crummy re-issue of the same slacious crumb that came with Oola? There are plenty of other figures that were released as regular figures for regular price that are bigger than the new Amanaman. Mechanic Chewie, Darktrooper come to mind. Also I stood my new "deluxe" Amanaman next to my original POTF Amanaman. The 1984 "regular" Amanaman is larger and quite a bit taller than the new "deluxe" Amanaman. THis leads me to beleive that the new Amanaman isnt all that "deluxe". We just had to pay $5 more for a useless re-release of slacious crumb and a card that bears the word "deluxe"
    The wild-stanced E2 figure poses suck!!!!

    What weapon does he use? Probably those MASSIVE and I would imagine, quite powerful hands! One needs not a blaster to catch someone. Amanin can climb with them arms, I don't see why they couldn't sever someone or something's head from the body. As for walking, chances are they move much like a gorilla on the ground. That or he just places his knuckles on the grounnd and throws his feet over, they can't be all that immovable.

    He's deluxe for God knows why, it doesn't matter. I voted for this goober twice, and I'm dern happy to have him.

    I just got mine today, and I don't have a problem with him other than the "gummy" accessories he comes with (and the fact that he looks like he's wearing lipstick). But other than that, he's a very cool figure.

    Deluxe Amanaman sux

    Yeah, you heard right, I'm disappointed in this yellow slug. How do you get him to hold that staff of his without it drooping over? And he comes packed with a crummy Salacious crumb to boot....Ugh!! Alot of hype and praise for nothing...i know alot of ya'll like him so i wonder did i happen to just buy a sucky Amanaman?

    On the other hand, Deluxe Leia is pretty awesome....100x better than 'buff, monkey face' POTF2 version. Oh well, since this about the big yellow slugg, i'll stop oogling about Deluxe Leia....

    Thumbs up

    True, he's over priced. True his bio is totally ridiculous, but the fact is, he's a pretty good representation of the thing in the widescreen version of ROTJ, and the old one didn't come out here.
    I like him a lot, and the fact that he's the direct result of fan input (kind of) makes him that much more significant.
    Question- is that pic on the back a production still, or what? I know where the bio comes from-you can smell it.
