    Saga Qui-Gon Jinn (Aka: Should I be worried?)

    One of my collector pals, sent me a Saga Qui-Gon Jinn and of course I had seen the horrible pictures online of it but I wanted a more action posed one. But the strange thing, now that I have freed him from his plastic prison, and messed around and played with him a while, I actually like the figure. The articulation is nice, in total 10 points (head, shoulders, elbows, wrists, waist, legs). His face sculpt in person really isn't as bad as the pictures on-line showed it to be. The cloak is pretty nice, and while it does suffer from gaps around the shoulders, if you put him on a stand and pull it back in the front it looks nice. I dunno, I swore the figure looked bad but it's starting to grow on me. Should I be worried?

    Not yet, if you start singing the praises of Geonosis Mace then I would start to worry.

    Well, now that you mention it......

    Actually, good point. No, I won't sing the praises of the Geonosis Mace. In my honest opinion, it's right up there with Anakin Skywalker: OPD and Padme Amidala: Arena Battle. Infact I would have to say, they fall in the following order. Padme Amidala, Mace Windu, and Anakin Skywalker.

    Even if it had used the exact same molding and painting as the first prototypes of that Qui-Gon figure from the 2-pack line, it still wouldn't excuse the fact that we didn't need a Qui-Gon figure when we could've gotten Poggle the Lesser or some other other interesting E2 figure.

    I dunno...I had a chance to give the new Qui-Gon a once-over at Wal-Mart and I was thoroughly underwhelmed. It wasn't really one thing in particular, I was just unimpressed by the figure.

    I like Geonosian Rescue Mace. He looks pretty damn funny running away from Jango Fett Final Battle, while Jango is blasting him in the rear with his flamethrower. It's great, Mace's arm with the elbow joint can be used for a comical "butt-fanning" action. :happy:

    It sure can! I made the picture! Only good thing I could come up with for it!

    I've seen a few great customs with Anakin's head on the new (but repainted) Qui's body. With a little tinkering, you can make even the most questionable figures better.

    You did that too? I set the scene up just the other day myself. Well you know what they say, great minds think alike.

    Well there might be something wrong with me then cause I enjoy GR Mace.

    I understand why people don't like him and I think the face sculpt was a REALLY bad idea but I still have a lot of fun with him. I just LOVE slashing his lightsaber around. The little gimmick actually works which is a nice thing. I know I shouldn't like him, but I can't help it! He's fun!

    I also don't mind Peasant Anakin, but I don't have any use for him either once I got my HD Ani. Padme on the other hand just irks me. It's such an awful figure that I keep it buried at the bottom of a box.

    I was really going to buy the Qui-Gon when it came out JarJar, because I though he would make great custom Jedi fodder, but once I saw him I dropped him back on the shelf because I couldn't STAND his poorly fitting cloak. It just looked awful. Maybe I made too quick of a descision though...

    I instantly loved the figure when I saw it in the store
