    Big Deal On Yarna???

    Hello everyone. I'm new here, some homeboy in Wal-Mart referred me here. We were both lookin at the new figures and he laced me up. Maybe I'll run into him round here eventually.

    Anyhow my question is what the hell is the big deal with Yarna. I am new to collecting these figures. So my knowledge is limited. All I know is Yarna was probably my least favorite. And everywhere I go on the web everyone was anticipating her. I barely remember her from the movies, if it's her I'm even thinking of.

    Anyhow lace me on game, what's so big about her. I realize it would be a first time release, but I saw on some list she was most anticipated to come out. I thought it was crazy.

    I can honestly say I have no clue what that phrase means.

    Anyways, Yarna has consistently been at the top of want lists here for over 7 years now. Mainly because she's a memorable character from the film, was one of the few characters from Jabba's Palace to never be immortalized in plastic, and a few years ago Hasbro made the mistake of saying it was highly unlikely that she would ever be made.

    That's also why everyone suddenly wants the Tonnika Sisters.

    What BigB said.

    I pretty much stopped collecting Star Wars a couple years ago, but I'll buy Yarna.

    Mostly because I vowed if Hasbro would make her, I would buy her.

    well i honestly say i was never for Yarna, being a character that had a few seconds of screen time but for what it's worth it is a nice figure. also one of the few figures (along with Vader) that I am having a hard time finding on the shelves. I have only seen Yarna once and have yet to see her again so the figure is either short packed or really flying off the shevles. either way it is a nice figure and SA to boot on a background character makes it worth the price.
    Looking for CW 2010 Sidious and TX-20...if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    For me, it was her touching story from the Tales From Jabba's Palace book.

    And, we're back. Sorry folks, little issue there, but rest assured, the REAL Bel-Cam is now back.

    Kidding. The figure itself isn't much. I think it was like the Grand Moff Tarkin one from the POTF2 line; people just wanted a never-before-made figure. I bought her for her parts... droid parts! To build the droid R7-whatever! Which BC-J is this, anyway?

    That's crazy you've only seen her once. Every store I go to around here has massive amounts of her. Except I've never seen one of her with the 1st day issue sticker.

    Collectors have wanted for for a few reasons. She's never been made, she's a memorable (if fugly) background character, some collectors are 'focus collectors' who collect only Jaba's palace figures and she's one of the few that hasn't been made yet, and . . . and . . .

    I have no idea why people want this figure personaly.

    I havn't seen it on the shelves here, but I don't want it. It's just ugly to me.

    My best advice would be to buy what you like. If you don't like Yarna, do not buy her.

    Hasbro's modern figures have very little re-sale value after a year or so. So it's best to only buy what you like.

    Kenner was making her into a figure back in the day - prototypes can be seen, but she was never fully realized nor released.

    Also, one of the idiot Hasbro execs indicated (if I remember correctly) we would NEVER see her under his command - he's gone, now we have her - so, she is a fan victory

    Shes mighty purty too!

    As AmanaMatt pointed out, Kenner had a protoype for her back in 84-85, but the figure never made it as the line was canceled. You can see those pics here: http://theswca.com/index.php?action=...&item_id=48903


    For some alot of obscure charcters is whats makes Star Wars so cool. It's what distiguishes our line from others. We get alomst everyone including the 3rd alien from the right, you know the one you blink and you miss him. While other lines get 6 versions of the same super-character and 1 villion and thats it (cough hulk, spiderman, superman). It's almost worth pushing the envelope to see how obscure Hasbro will get, Yarna, The Ice Cream Guy, or my wish Ackmena.
    Hasbro, Wuher needs help, bring us Ackmena http://www.petitiononline.com/Ackmena/petition.html
