Habro will be releasing a Maul and Qui-Gon 2 pack in the 5POA line.

Any thoughts on this figure? Who's purchasing it?

Qui-Gon is a pretty solid looking sculpt, even if it is only 5(6?)POA.

That qui-gon does look pretty great. For as much as I've unloaded my prequel stuff there always seems to be room for a qui-gon.

Meh, they did a battle pack a couple of years ago when Hasbro starting tinkering with 5POA.

Dear Qui-Gon
I'm going to customize you


This head + hands + tvc body = definitive jedi master

Both figures look great, I like the removable cloak for Maul, like the Evolutions figure sported. This is just an oddball release at this time...

I still have an episode 1 naboo qui-gon robe. I may throw that on this guy, paint the arms and call it a day.

Qui-Gon looks excellent. For all their limitations, the 5POA figures have routinely excelled at Jedi... Maul looks a little goofy, but I'll happily revise that opinion on seeing further pictures.

These are the best head sculpts I've seen of these two. I'll transplant them on the SA figures.

I LOVE Maul's robe as well.

Same here, been waiting for decent Qui-Gon sculpt. Almost got the one for TPM3D release but never found it. Also hoping Maul's robes are somewhat pliable to use elsewhere.

I always liked the sculpt on the 5POA Qui-Gon with the light up saber. I put that on an SA body and am pretty happy with it. I'll have to see this one in person, but it looks very similar. The Obi-Wan was pretty good as well:

A similar Obi head was found in one of the mini-rig sets I believe, I think the MTT Droid Fighter set.

The cloak on the Maul figure looks good, but the sabers look like crap now.

The sample figures used in these displays often have shonky weapons. I doubt these would ship with warped lightsabers like that... but then the TFA vehicles had their share of warpage, so who knows? :\

The 5 POA seem to appear to all now lack the ignited flame-like effect near the emitter and they went back to the old style of making the bland smooth bladed lightsaber seein in the TPM and previous lines.

I miss those lightsabers myself.. I also miss the add on features that Hasbro packed with the Saga / AOTC line like saber deflect and blaster shot effects... I think those would be a great pack-in for the 5POA figures

Remains to be seen if Hasbro will revisit that, being considered a 'been there, done that' sort of deal. I'm just seeing a whole 're-Kenner-ization' of the entire SW figure line with the 5POA approach w/o all the gimmicky stuff sprinkled in.

But hey, there's always the planetary map poster inserts (or in this modern day and age, downloads)! :)

if we are going with a whole re-Kenner-ization thing than I want Hasbro to bring back the 1984 POTF Collector coins again. I loved getting these during the TAC Collection

Kinda look like scaled down replicas of the 6 inch BS versions, and without all the articulation.

The paint apps look really good. But there always seems to be some disparity in the quality of paint apps we saw in figures that are displayed at Comic Con and what we actually get at retail.

Duel of the fates is one of my primary collection focus areas. These two figures are stunning. Over the past 3 years the 5poa line has surprisingly won it's way into my heart. You can almost never go wrong with static poses. If HASBRO intends to keep the 5 POA line moving forward I have a few recommendations:

-follow through with figures who have removable headgear. Not every figure but if it makes sense and we see a face under a helmet- COME ON- it should be a removable helmet and don't talk to me about cost. HASBRO adds gigantic stupid spring loaded gadgets to basic 5 POA figures so yeah- you can make that helmet removable

- quality paint application. I am a customizer, and know what I am doing with paint- but I don't want to touch up every single figure I own, particularly if I intend to keep it carded!!!!

- quality plastics for weapons! You put all of this detail into what appears to be a movie accurate weapon- and then pour jell-o into the mold. What gives? Use some $&%}+#+% good plastic.

- how about a vintage- ish card back. I understand that the true "vintage" style card backs are reserved for premium figures, but how about a classic - vintage Star Wars style vibe- double racing stripes, star field , Vader head, something that doesn't look like a Nickelodeon game show merchandise.

Just my 2cents

My guess would be- If HASBRO can charge $13-$15 for a vintage style figure, the $7-$9 5POA line feels Like value for the money. Han said it best ""it's all a bunch of simple tricks and nonsense"

I’ve yet to see anything regarding the release of this set. I’d imagine early 2018 if not next month, and I feel we would have seen or heard something if it were going to be in time for the holidays. I suppose it’s still early, however I was under the impression the Target ROTJ 3 pack was going to hit Nov 1 and it’s the 9th already and we’ve yet to see or hear about anything hitting state side.

I think after the 2012 debacle with the TPM 3D clogging the pegs, Hasbro has been sparse with PT merchandise. I like all things SW so I'm good for OT, PT and ST merchandise as well as anthology movies and TV too

I think they realized back during ROTS that the fans weren't responding to prequel imagery. Outside of the toys most of the generic products (t-shirts, cereal boxes etc) had Yoda, Darth Vader or Chewbacca. Yes they were the prequel versions but really it was the OT images.

The PT toys had their day and they have since faded.

That being said I do want this set. I've always liked qui-gon despite his character being little more than the beard he wears.

Got this set in the mail today. I won't have any pics until tomorrow though because for reasons. ;P

It's nice, the sculpts are great. Maul actually looks like Ray Park, Qui-Gon looks a little off if you look at him straight on but from the sides is an excellent likeness to Liam Neeson. The detail on the saber hilts is really crisp. Maul's outer cloak looks great, albeit his seeker droid is a little large. Swivel wrists on Qui-Gon as we've come to expect. On Maul they swivel more at the elbow and on an angle sort of like the old swivel elbows we used to get.

My only gripe would be Qui-Gon is just a little bit short, I think anyway.

Only one pack really had a good Qui Gon likeness. Maul is very short imo, and the swivel elbows aren't angled to where he can two handed grip his lightsaber normally. you can do it, but you're going to have to either bend the handle some, or put it in one hand at an angle. That's pretty disappointing. The saber hilts don't have any red for the buttons, but they details on them are great. They also seem smaller to me than TLJ lightsabers, and that's a good thing because they are more scale accurate. I'm still on the fence about the rest of the solo line but I'm pretty happy with these.

That some on Maul looks spectacular, might have to buy this to combine with a TVC release to make a better SA Maul. Always hated that head sculpt and soft goods lower robes.

But I already took them and uploaded them so... MORE pics.

Jury is still out for me on Maul's face... like, yeah it looks more like Ray Park but I'm not crazy about that particular expression. Although I do prefer the subdued color and crisper paint on the face. Couple comparison's for height's sake.

Maul's arms elbow angle spin thing I don't care for. One arm popped right out while I was fiddling with it and doesn't seem to want to go back in flush. :-/

I'm afraid I don't have the Legacy/TVC Qui-Gon to try it. The neck looks pretty wide (on this one) and if I recall it was pretty narrow on the Legacy version so I'd assume it would fit loosely and probably need a drop of hot glue or putty or some such to fill out the cavity, which is always easier than the other way around.

Lack of articulation aside, I do really like this body sculpt, fwiw.

YavinTemplePilot
04-10-2018, 06:23 PM
DarthPete, those are Cynical_Saber’s photos. I’m thinking about picking this up. I think the new Maul sculpt is better for the shape of the horns alone, the paint looks cleaner generally too.

As far as the neck on Qui-Gon goes the neck on the recent ROTJ Luke is thicker than TVC figure’s but the ball socket in the new one is a bit smaller, so it actually fits very well. This one may be the same way. From the three I saw in the wild today I’d say you’re going to have to hunt to find one painted well enough to warrant the swap.

They look pretty good in person. I’m going to keep an eye out for well painted ones. I saw three today and they all had wonkey eyes similar to the ones posted here.

I had similar luck with the first few cases of Target ROTJ 3-Packs that I saw in store. The first wave of shipments had terrible paint and it made the sculpts look goofy. The recent cases have had much better paint and they look like completely different figures. In that case they went from maybe one passable box per case to all passable and one or two that were perfect.

i think these sculpts are good and if I see well painted ones i’ll buy and post pictures.

Sounds like a case of Vietnam factories needing to up their paint app game. If I remember correctly single pack come from China and two packs from Vietnam and there were differences in paint apps. Rey in TLJ line for example. And I gotta believe Han Bespin is a decent sculpt with poor paint.

That seems unlikely to me unless they’re different sculpts. Wouldn’t make sense to have the tooling to make the same figures in two different places. What would make sense is if some of these larger gift packs like the recent saga one that had Yoda and Qui-Gon and I think Endor Luke etc were made with worn out tooling in a different location. Those always look way worse to me.

The Target 3-pack has a logical progression of terrible paint quality to near perfect. I think it’s a manufacturing engineering / quality engineering problem. Probably not getting their process refined at first as they ramp up production and then as it goes along they refine it. (I work in the manufacturing industry)

I’ll say the single carded releases have been solid enough that in any given case you can usually find at least one well painted version of each figure. I hunted down the best painted Target 3-packs I could find and when they first hit Targets around here all four targets near me didn’t get a single good looking Luke. Most if not all of them I’m seeing show up now are passable or better.

I got the Target three pack when it first hit. Luke's not perfect, but he is light years better than the Qui-Gon/Maul packs I saw today. Heck, the Rose/BB8/BB9E and Lando/whoever that other guy is sets were light years better and they are packed in the same case! These looked horrible...like the figures that came with the Sarlacc Pit horrible.

Stopped by Walmart again today and neither 2-pack had sold. I showed it to my little boy and he said "Qui-Gon looks like a hobo" LOL

The prototype pictures of these figures were a lot better than the finished product. The Maul cloak isnt compatible to the TVC Maul either.

Man, the samples in the ToyArk photo shoot (http://news.toyark.com/2018/04/13/solo-star-wars-story-hasbro-3-75-2-pack-galleries-296371)look pretty good. Nothing like the ones I have seen in hand.

The Jinn head sculpt is very good if you can get one with good paint application. I did like the thinner hilt double-bladed lightsaber but the blades are made cheap and with no flame effect and no paint detailing. Jinn's saber completely sucks.

The probe droid is pretty cool by itself but not as well made as older versions from Legacy. I did notice that Maul's probe droid stand is the Sith Empire logo.

I picked up this set and I think it came out great. The probe droid, in particular, was a pleasant surprise and very well done!

I used the new head sculpts (and Qui Gon's hands) to improve the SA figures. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180422/27531e1476d4c8229773fae9cd972d6b.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180422/ad34c0085982b5db2e06d132b385b32d.jpg

Eh. Iíll get this set when I find a good paint job. All the ones Iíve seen have a terrible paint job! Well, one had a GREAT Maul, and HORRIBLE Qui-Gon. A few others were the opposite. Iím really disappointed, as I have wanted this set ever since it was announced. Oh well.

i wanted to do this too but haven’t found a set where both are well painted. I think they would look even better if you swap over the lower robes too.

Agreed, but the lack of waist joints on the 5POA, and the upper torso joints on the SA figures make that more trouble than it's worth IMO.

They got Qui-Gon right 6 years ago in the movie heroes line...

That's still the best likeness in my opinion as well. The hand painted prototype looked great, but what I'm seeing at retail isn't near that level. Out of over half a dozen sets, I've only seen one I'd consider picking up. This set reminds me of the Han/Boba pack from the TLJ assortment - the final product doesn't meet your expectations, and you realize you have enough of the characters anyway.

The best Jinn lightsaber hilt comes from the old 2002 Saga release. Strange they never repacked that hilt with any of the SA Jinn's.

Weird why is his head so round? Looks like Horacio Sans Jinn.

and I still think the Vintage/Mail away is best sculpt even if his head is too small.

Finally listened to these figures today with the FL2 update. Darth Maul is okay but Qui-Gon sounds terrible. I would venture to say the commtech versions of him are better. I mean sound quality wise obviously the new version is better, but in terms of sounding like Liam it widely misses the mark.

Fitting since, in terms of looking like Liam, it misses the mark too. ;)

the lines of dialogue for the forcelink for Jinn are not even in the voice of Liam and they are corny at best. it's a shame. also Maul's line are weird too...
