The choices for Star War’s fans choice figure are still available to be voted on and I finally got a chance to check them out. You’ve got the usual assortment of background aliens that no normal person should care about, some of Padme’s Decoys, and Uncle Owen’s Dad. This thing is like a Hall of Shame for Star Wars. Here are just a few of the terrible, terrible choices:
Kitster Banai and Wald
The text for this one is priceless, ” Anakinâ€™s little buddies have never received figures, yet theyâ€™re prominent on-screen.” Prominent on-screen does not equal worthy of being an action figure, rather its just one of Lucas’s biggest blunders.
And this obese Jiminy Cricket alien design is exactly why it’s hard to take Star Wars the least bit seriously.
I can see this super racist alien just flying off the shelves.
What makes a great action figure? Not a ancient, crabby ass space librarian that’s for sure.
Remember that watered down Han Solo stand in that disappeared in the ’90s along with quilted shoulder pads? I tried to forget him.
Yes, please give us the most boring looking characters in Knights of the Old Republic, not Canderous Ordo, Mission Vao or a re-release of Darth Revan so he could be more affordable.
Still, the list isn’t entirely bad. There’s a few figures like Darth Plagus, the female Ion Control operator, and a brand new Grand Moff Tarkin that would be worth it. My favorite is a more neutral posed Barriss Offee who is one of the coolest looking Jedi ever… and I kind of have a crush on her. There I said it. Now go and vote.
