Looks like we'll be seeing Maz Kanata with a giant backpack in the Last Jedi line. No idea if she'll be in a 2 pack or single packed?

worth picking up the new Maz figure?

Maz is a great little figure, but a jetpack wont get me to purchase this figure again.

I would say the same but I'm looking forward to hearing her speak with the Force Link Tech and the Jet pack looks cool...

I bet this is a quick repack to get her back out because they didn't have details of any new costume or look for the new film?

Didn't get the 4 pack she was in during TFA so this is definitely a buy for me.

Yeeeeup. I'm a sucker for the Force Link. I guess if she has a part in TLJ I'll need another for that movie shelf anyways and at least with the sound chip it's not a total repack of an old lady.

I was just wondering why a Jet pack? She must do something in the movie with it, perhaps races R2?

the new 6 inch version looks the same as TFA and refers to her role in TLJ. I don't think she gets a costume change. I assume her closet looks like Homer Simpson's.

That and the whole attack on her castle plus TLJ taking place like 2 days after the destruction of Starkiller Base.

apparently her suitcases were filled with old lightsabers, not clothing.

I think we all wish our suitcases were like that.

Huge pass. Bought the Takodana pack. Would be a maybe if they made the glasses removable and added some extra articulation, but just not worth for the exact same figure with some different accessories (especially when I prefer the chest and hilt from the 4-pack over a jet pack and a different blaster).

Well we should be glad Hasbro at least gave us a properly sized jet pack instead of this thing..

Anyways I too would've liked the chest with the lightsaber more but I'll probably be picking her up as I don't have her yet

Note: picture won't show but it's that awful 90's giant jet pack Boba. You can probably see it in your heads already lol

Kind of hitting myself for picking up the Takodana set and doubling up on BB8, Finn and Rey.
Even if I got that one on sale and it only cost me as much as a single 5POA figure would've at full price. At least I got the lightsaber chest in that one.

Perhaps she'll actually use this jetpack in the film! Her TBS6 figure mentions she'll need to get involved in the action this time and the jetpack is not preposterously sized or designed like many toy-only pack-ins often are. Would a flying Maz wind up people as much as R2 did in AotC?

Forget the Rocketeer, we now have the Rocket Raccoon of the Star Wars universe! And if Maz had her way, Chewie would be Groot. :grin::grin:

Well then, looks like some of us would owe Hasbro an apology for suggesting the jetpack was just an original creation to ell the toy. Weird how that works out. Still a pass for me.

I have the first release so a pass for me as well.

This figure actually accurately portrays her as she is seen in the film using both the blaster and the jet pack. It would have been nice if she came with the lightsaber and box too but I don't think Hasbro would do that.

This was a pass until I realized the jetpack is a nod to Joe Johnston's prop so I'm going to buy it just for the rocketpack!

Eso based on Amazon recent new l7stings and new case ratios posted in another threafcearlier today, maz, hoth leia and maul/qui gon are not in palp/flametroop/ca'i/ phasma-finn wave. In fact cai is only new teal wave fig, pslp and flametroop are orange and only 1 2pk in next wave. Total suck-ville. Someone at Hasbro needs firing for these stupid ratios

They should have made the Mazkateer holo like in the movie. Would have saved Hasbro on paint apps.

She wasn't really a hologram was she? It was more like a color video feed I thought, unless I'm remembering it incorrectly.

very tenuous that! I’m pretty sure that wasn’t a Indy reference.

Its not that it’s an unlikely link. But a red flower is just so tenuous.

What was Maz doing anyway? In TFA she was at least somewhat interesting and had a knowledge of the Jedi/Sith etc.

Plus she ended up with Luke's lightsaber. In TLJ she was doing...I don't even know. Ghostbusting? Just another example of how this movie ignored TFA and took valuable to screen time to show us a casino and escaping animals.
