I saw this picture a few weeks ago, and I've been trying to find it again, and FINALLY I found it! Every other picture I've ever seen (during my search I must have seen at least a HUNDRED) they all were either head shots, or cut off right above his 'waist'
Anyway... take a gander at this; It's pretty insane!
(How much fun will we be able to have with this figue when it finally comes out?)

Is that acurate? I'm not crazy about him being a lizard-man at all.

People! Don't you even recognize one of the 12 Jedi Councel members?? And you call yourselves obsessed geeky nerd-boys! http://www.collectstarwars.com/ubb/images/icons/wink.gif

Can lizard-based creatures BE that hairy?

I've got it! Oppo Rancicis is what you get when you cross these two fellows:

What's the first image? http://www.collectstarwars.com/ubb/images/icons/shocked.gif

Otherwise, cool shot of A-Man http://www.collectstarwars.com/ubb/images/icons/grin.gif

(As much as I want an Oppo figure, it looks like a bean bag chair with a head! And therefore couldnt have much play value)

(Though I can only assume that he's a snake with arms, you can almost see his 'tail' curled up benienth his jedi robes...)

Yeah, what the hell DOES he have instead of legs? Those aren't stumps, and it only looks like a coiled snake with a stretch of the imagination. I would imagine a modicum of symmetry between the arms and legs, Amanaman notwithstanding. Is Lucas introducing us to a new bodily appendage? The levitating waist-patty? The bouncing bottom?

If he isnt killed off in E2, maybe we'll see him 'walk' before then. You can't help but notice he was inconspicuosly missing at the end of E1 in the Theed scenes and also the Funeral.
I wonder what E2 holds for us...

Oppo is a serpent. Thissispians (sp?) like Oppo are hairy snakes.

Don't make fun of Oppo! I think he's a cool character. I liked seeing him wiggle his snakey tail in AOTC. images/icons/smile.gif

Funny, I thought he had at least one pair (if not two pairs) of tentacles below the waist.

Where did you ever dig this topic up from? images/icons/tongue.gif

I remember when I first saw that picture, I was blown away.. but now I think nothing of it, especially after seeing him in AOTC.. I actually thought of this topic when I saw that in the theatre images/icons/smile.gif

Still.. I bet under those robes.. he's just a snake with a wicked case of bad facial hair.. and some weirdo arms.. I hope we get too see him again in the future, he's an interesting creature (I saw a closeup of the rubber mask.. he looks like a frightened little.. well, I don't know, but its pretty freaky images/icons/wink.gif )

I want to see him in Episode 3. I think he is a cool character. I am 98% sure he wasn't at Geonosis. I can't imagine a snake slithering around in fast paced action like that! images/icons/smile.gif

I never noticed this in or around TPM, but the first time I saw AOTC I turned to my wife and was like "what the hell is that dude Oppo? A snake?" I couldn't believe that I'd never noticed that before. Makes me want a figure of him even more now. That should be quite an interesting one...
