    These are phenomenal why would any other toy company think of competing with these at this scale??…

  • Fiery Little One

    I’d say this is the one time where they, bizarrely, missed the mark on the face. Some commented on the Fwoosh that it looks more like Sean Penn than it does Liam Neeson, I don’t disagree.

    I love how flexible the hair appears to be.

    The only stinkers in this line so far are Captain Phasma for height and the soon-to-be-released Chewbacca… for height. All other figures have a great scale 1/12.

      The Chewie is a tough call. In the promo pics he looks too short, but so far when the two have been seen in displays next to one another the difference in height appears more accurate, with the top of Han’s head coming up to Chewie’s shoulder. I suspect one may have to pull down Chewie’s legs at the hip (a great, scale-saving figuarts feature in the past with Vader and Kylo), but I could be wrong. I guess we’ll know next month.

      No excuse for Phasma, though. The sculpt was so great, all she needed was to be the right height.

      • ronstoneygold

        You know what; I bet S.H.Figuarts built the Captain Phasma figure based on Gwendoline Christie’s height and not the height of the character. The Captain Phasma character would included an extra 1.75″ for the helmet sitting on her head and an extra 2.25″ for the boot heels. At the 1/12 scale of the 6″ line that equals an extra 1/3″. Adding an extra 1/3 of an inch would then make it the perfect size.

        WHOOPS.

    Looks more like Liam Neeson than Hasbro’s does

  • He looks like The Dude.

    He needs an alternate torso so I can recreate this exact shot: (sarcasm) 😉 https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b6f3872d7b73017e372bf5b7d1cf6ec98250c1967b4577c8a500a1ebc07aa398.jpg

      They actually made a Maul in POTJ that spilt in half to recreate his death. Today things are too PC, so I doubt that figure would see release 17 years after its debut. Btw, do you dislike Qui-Gon?

      • Paul B

        With some effort, the TVC TPM Darth Maul can be spilt in two as well. He has a ball jointed waist. (I’d suggest heating it with hot water first to soften up the plastic.)
        On another note, way back in 1999, Hasbro had plans to produce a Qui Gon Jinn figure with a lightsaber battle damage wound in his chest. (I remember seeing an image for it, but for the life of me, I can’t remember where.) The mold was used, but sans the battle damage. (Was released as the last Qui Gon Jinn in the TPM line. He had soft goods skirt and Jedi comlink.)

        • CT-7567

          Interesting. I didn’t know that. I actually still have that Qui-Gon. Do you know why they didn’t give him the battle damage? Too graphic?

          • Paul B

            Probably. Like I said, I know I saw a picture, but I don’t remember the specifics
            I really wanted a battle damaged Qui Gon Jinn figure

          • CT-7567

            Yeah. It would be cool if there was actually a hole for Maul’s saber. Not trying to sound morbid, I just think t would be a neat scene to create. I’ve always thought battle damaged figures were cool. I loved getting the POTF2 Bespin Luke wremovable hand. Even the 2011 TCW Hunt for Grievous battle pack has a Rex figure with the blaster wound he sustained in that episode. I still wish the 6″ Bespin Luke had come with an alternate, battle damage head and removable right hand with a cauterized stump.

          • Paul B

            and the thing he wore on the Falcon as they were being chased by Darth Vader’s star destroyer.
            But Hasbro can’t do that because it would drive the price point up too much Too much tooling and Hasbro would make as much profit on it.
            I’d pay $25 bucks a pop for a six inch figure that has several accessories, that I can recreate several scenes from the movie with, as opposed to $20 bucks for a figure that’s missing nearly every accessory that it’s 3.75″ counter part had.

          • Paul B

            I am currently using that figure as a dying Qui Gon figure on my shelf

      • General Hux

        No!! I love Qui-Gon, he’s one of my favorite Jedi. 🙂

        • CT-7567

          Mine too. Like clones, there are many Jedi that I like more because the way they look. Kit Fisto is probably my favorite PT Jedi based on his look. Rex is my favorite clone character-wise, but there are other armor designs that I like more than his. Qui-Gon is definitely a favorite of mine. As for my exact favorite, it’s a toss up between Luke and Obi-Wan. I’ve loved the character of Luke Skywalker for as long as I can remember. Obi-Wan however is, IMO, the greatest Jedi ever. The scene in TCW when Maul executes Satine pretty much cemented that idea in my mind. If I was in Obi-Wan’s place I would’ve turned to the dark side and killed Maul and everyone else in the room out of rage. I felt such admiration for Obi-Wan when I first watched that episode. I already knew he was a great swordsman and tactician, but being able to resist such a strong call to darkness makes him even greater.
