http://www.rebelscum.com/toys2006/TSC51podracers1-tn.jpg (http://www.rebelscum.com/toys2006/TSC51podracers1.jpg)

I was inspired by this semi serious thread from the ROTS Forum. (http://threads.rebelscum.com/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=1369080&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=1#Post13696251369080)

I thougt it might be best to completely revamp the thread than to have it moved to the appropriate forum.
The Pilots could be handled in many ways in the coming years.

There are currently no announced plans for a Wave in which any one of these characters could fit, but I believe something along the lines of separate Screen/Cinema Scenes
or Deluxe 2-3 packs would work well.

Ideally I'd rather see some of the more prominent characters carded in the Basic line at a later time than to see their sculpts and articulation suffer.

Later in '06 or '07 would work for me, while understanding some characters may be opted closer to the end of Hasbro's run, if never produced at all.

Here are some of the pilots I would like to see handled carded, or on par with a Basic figure.

1. DUD BOLT (Pod Racer Pilot) w/ DUM-4 Pit Droid and goggles. (http://www.ffurg.com/casting_call/podracers/dud_bolt.jpg)
2. RATTS TYERELL (Pod Racer Pilot) w/ Otoga-222 Pit Droid and goggles. (http://www.ffurg.com/casting_call/podracers/ratts_tyerell.jpg)
3. ALDAR BEEDO (Pod Racer Pilot) w/ DUM-4 Pit Droid and goggles. (http://www.ffurg.com/casting_call/podracers/aldar_beedo.jpg)
4. WAN SANDAGE (Pod Racer Pilot) w/ Otoga-222 Pit Droid and goggles. (http://www.ffurg.com/casting_call/podracers/wan_sandage.jpg)
5. ELAN MAK (Pod Racer Pilot) w/ Otoga-222 Pit Droid and goggles. (http://www.ffurg.com/casting_call/podracers/elan_mak.jpg)
6. NEVA KEE (Pod Racer Pilot) w/ Otoga-222 Pit Droid and goggles. (http://www.ffurg.com/casting_call/podracers/neva_kee.jpg)
7. MAWHONIC (Pod Racer Pilot) w/ DUM-4 Pit Droid. (http://www.ffurg.com/casting_call/podracers/mawhonic.jpg)
8. BOLES ROOR (Pod Racer Pilot) w/ DUM-4 Pit Droid and goggles. (http://www.ffurg.com/casting_call/podracers/boles_roor.jpg)
9. ARK "BUMPY" ROOSE (Pod Racer Pilot) w/ DUM-4 Pit Droid and goggles. (http://www.ffurg.com/casting_call/podracers/ark_bumpy_roose.jpg)
10. CLEGG HOLDFAST (Pod Racer Pilot) w/ DUM-4 Pit Droid and goggles. (http://www.ffurg.com/casting_call/podracers/clegg_holdfast.jpg)
11. MARS GUO (Pod Racer Pilot) w/ DUM-4 Pit Droid and goggles. (http://www.ffurg.com/casting_call/podracers/mars_guo.jpg)

At this point I couldn't really care less about Ebe Endocott (http://www.ffurg.com/casting_call/podracers/ebe_endocott.jpg) or Ben Quadrinaros, (http://www.ffurg.com/casting_call/podracers/ben_quadrinaros.jpg) but I may not mind them upon seeing their figure, or if they were to be included in a multipack.

I agree! I'd love to see ALL the Podracers. If they were to make only a few however, I'd place my bets on Mawhonic and Quadrinaros.

I'm sure they'd be a hit with the collectors.

BennyDarkness
08-27-2005, 06:15 PM
I'd like Boles Roor, or Clegg Holdfast. Ratts Tyrell would be cool too.

NS_Stormtrooper
08-27-2005, 07:34 PM
There's only three podracers I'd like to see in plastic:

Dud Bolt
Ratts Terryl
Mawhonic

Maybe Ben Quadrinaros because he was featured in a few scenes but I really don't care for the character design. Looks like they gave arms and legs to this guy: http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Just like the cantina aliens and jabba's palace all the podracer pilots need to be made at some point to complete the set. They don't all have to be made at once but one or 2 every now and again would be nce. I'd start off with the characters that had a little bit of screen time so for me that would be:

Dud Bolt
Ratts Tyerell
mawhonic
clegg holdfast
Ben Quadrinaros

Once they are done Hasbro could move onto the rest. Maybe Hasbro could come out with like 8 or so packs with 2 pilots per card and a miniature/micro machine version of their podracer.

I would like a few more pod racers. Some had some pretty cool designs but I do not want to see a figure of Ben Quadinerios. That character is a disgrace to star wars, as I have said a million times before he belongs in A Bugs Life not Star Wars.

I'd always welcome podracer pilots. The top three I'd want would be Mawhonic, Ben Quarinaros, and Clegg Holdfast. I think hasbro should also make more pod racers to go along with Anakin's and Sebulba's.

Inigo_Montoya
08-29-2005, 02:59 PM
Lotta love for Quadrinaros around here.

Not everyone cares for Ratts Tyerell or Dud Bolt?

Dud Bolt would be my first choice for a figure.

Tyranusspotting
08-30-2005, 04:47 PM
They should be featured in two-packs on a basic card.
I also liked the Podracer from the Deleted Scene with the K49 Wasp. His name is Clegg Holdfast, because he acted like an oldschool racer/ pilot from the early 20th century.
http://216.127.78.103/~dutch-starwars.com/database/personen/pics/clegg_holdfast_2.jpg

Ben Quardinaros would be great as would be all the other famous Pod Racers.

The rumor as of now is that there will be two Podracer Pilots on a single card in Wave 7 - Naboo & Tatooine (TPM).

Insiders have said they will be newly sculpted, and never before produced characters.

My best guess based on rumors from the last few years, and the need for both figures' sizes to be taken into account as they'll be packed together on a single card, is that the characters chosen are:
Ben Quadrinaros & Ratts Tyerell.
http://www.cswu.cz/prequels/postavy/pod/podracers.jpg
I'm pretty certain they're not shown proportionally scaled here, but I may be wrong.

You can size them up with the Gasgano figure if they are.

GNT

Looks like the character stills that they use in promotional/book (VD) material of the characters cobbled together into one.

Inigo_Montoya
10-29-2005, 01:42 AM
Exactly what I figured, but I just don't know how those four size up to one another.

I get the impression that Ratts Tyerell would be about 3'-4' feet, and Quadrinaros would be at least 5'.

Neal
10-29-2005, 08:46 AM
Ben Quadinaros is 5'4" (1.63 meters) ... and Ratts Tyerell is 2'7" (0.79 meters) .... approximately.

Any insight as to what these may be? I really am thrilled to be getting more pod racers. They deserve to be made as they were great E1 characters (in my humble opinion). I'm hoping for Mowhonic and Ark "Bumpy" Roose but any are a great addition. Who do you want to see made?





No insight yet. This will be a 2-pack I believe, so some have speculated Dud Bolt and Rat Tyrell. I'd be fine with any 2 actually, they are all pretty cool.





Anakin & Sebulba. j/k http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif


Ben and "Bumpy"





I'm going to bet that it will be Ben Quadrinaros and Ratts Tyerell.





As long as we see Dud Bolt, I'll be happy.





How about Ebe Endocott and Neva Kee's or

Boles Roor and Elan Mak or one more

Clegg Holdfast and Mawhonic .





Yep, it could be any of the podracers.





For me I am waiting For a Clegg Holdfast he looks mad cool.





yeah any is fine with me. I just hope that in time all are made. Neva Kee wasn't in the movie as far as I can tell, but in the source book he looks a little like a gremlin. He'd be awesome





He is in The deloeted scenes.





I've tried to spot him but have never seen him in the deleted scenes. Can you tell me where to look?

I think that this set will be ehash of Gasgano and Teemto Pagalies.

Inigo_Montoya
10-30-2005, 05:20 PM
They'll almost definately both be new sculpts of never before produced characters.

The best bets are Ben Quadrinaros, as he was a candidate in a Hasbro Fan's Choice Poll, and Ratts Tyerell, because he's nearly the smallest of the Pilots, a huge fan favorite, and has been rumored for just as long as Quadrinaros has.

They will be two Basic Pilots. They're each others' pack-in, with not much room left for a Pit Droid.

EternalJedi
10-31-2005, 02:16 PM
I'll be quite happy if we never get a figure of Ben Quadrinaros. I liked most of the alien designs from TPM, but his character design just sticks out like a sore thumb. He was the only animated character in the film that pretty much waved around a big flag that said "I'm an animated character in a live action film!"

He's a big face with arms and legs. It's a horrid design.

I know that, but I figured with this they'd give us new figures. I mean, IMO, Obi Wan, Maul and the Naboo Soldier will be the only rehashed we see in this wave.

indeed. not too big on pod racers myself tho...

darkpowers
10-31-2005, 11:04 PM
i think these will be new racers. why? because they will be small, limited in detail, accessories and articulation. i think hasbro is probably gonna string these out for years, and only if theres a strong enough demand for them. although with them finally producing a bunch of figures in 2006 we have all been begging for i suspect that these guys might see a stronger support from the collectors. only problem is they kinda suck if you wanna make dioramas cause theres only two pod racers. and i think the chances we might see a new one of those is right up there with a deathstar playset.

and please, no more pit droids.

Hyperdrive
10-31-2005, 11:21 PM
why no more pit droids? I'd like more. I'd love to see a rerelease of the htf E1 pit droids. At least repaints or new accessories packed in could make them different enough for those who don't want to see these droids released again.

darkpowers
10-31-2005, 11:33 PM
why? because i have a ton of them. what were there, like seven? maybe if there was a different one they over looked i could see it. they couldnt even stand up. maybe they could release an army builder pack of them once they release a few more pilots, for collectors who want them. as for me i have enough.

I'll take any two as long as one of them is Rats Tyrell.

BTW, did anyone notice the Rats Tyrell aliens (no idea what they're called) in ROTS? You have to have incredibly good eyes because for about two seconds you see them riding the Can Cells during the opening shot of Kashyyyk.

Mawhonic and Ratts Tyrell. It has to be those two. first of all, we all witnessed the amazing sculpt of Ask Aak, and all Hasbro would have to do is size down the head and create a cool, smaller, and more detailed body.

Now with Ratts Tyrell. I don't know what would be so great about this figure, but i just want it. My favorite expression of any Star Wars saga face was when Ratts Tyrell was about to hit that stalagtite. it was priceless.

Darth_Broem
11-05-2005, 11:26 AM
I'd go for Mawkhonic (sp?) and Ratts Tyrel simply because we actually see them onscreen quite a bit compared to the other Podracers. Quadrinaros would be kind of interesting. Basically a giant head for an action figure. I could probably give it to my one year old son as a bath toy.

Roton7
11-05-2005, 03:15 PM
Of course we have to have Mawhonic. I don't even care if they ignore this 2-pack deal and just make it a singular figure. they can throw in whatever junk they want to along with the dude, but Mawhonic is who I've got my money on.

Hasbro have only made Sebulba and Anakin's podracer crafts back when TPM was out in 99. Due to money and a possible lack of interest for vehicles Hasbro will not spend time creating them when nobody will buy them. Instead we'll get the podracer pilots carded which is just good enough. Plenty of weird looking ones that'll look fantastic in figure form.

Mawhonic is probably too big for a too pack, but you never know.

I think Mars Guo would be a cool choice as well.



I would bet on Mawhonic because of the kit bash possibilities - we already have a Gran head, hands and body - resculpt the costume slightly, and you're there.

After that Quadrinaros gets the most screen time, and would likely be a static - dare I say statue - figure along the lines of Salacious Crumb...

As an aside, was there ever a bunch of characters that looked so out of place - aside from Mawhonic, and perhaps Sebulba, the other pod racers all look like cartoon characters, and just didn't fit with the rest of the look of the saga - I guess we got a couple of looks at Tyrell's race in the Coruscant chase scene, but otherwise, to my mind, it would have been a lot cooler if the other pod racers had been known races - Rodian, Aqualish, Ithorian, you name it... Maybe not those three, but you get the point. It seemed like an exercise in "what can we do with CG..." Where the race sequence, stands, and so on would have been plenty, but they had to add a bunch of loony toons escapees....

Seems like it would have made for better figures as well.

Note - this is not me bashing the prequels, just one small piece of one of the movies - one part that looked out of place.

In any case, I'll buy this figure pack just like all the others.

I for sure think that Ben will be one of them (he was nominated twice in the fan's choice-and most of those figs were made), but I think the second will be a smaller pilot like Mars Guo or Rats Terell.

Just my 2 cents worth.

Maybe they'll do a couple of podracers with new sculpts in one pack and manage some how to do variation packs of other podracers in other packs. Sounds crazy but you never know with hasbro.

Mawhonic and Ratts is what I want. Ark Roose, Elan Mak and Dud Bolt as well. The two figure set sould be just like the Jawa and Gonk. In with the rest of the figures. I'd prefer having Podracers with other podracers instead of with pit droids.

More pods would just take more room on the shelves at stores and in peoples collections - that aint good espicially if you wanted them to make all 16-18 or so pods. They culd probably get away with making the more popular/screen time pods but I dont think they'd sell to well.

Best to just get the figures as a cheaper alternative http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif I'd so laugh if it turned out to be an existing pod racer http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif Shouldn't though.

I think that's a piece of packing popcorn that's somehow attached to the figure - his helmet is off to the side. Once it's removed, I think it'll look more normal - with the added benefit that at least he, appears to have a removable helmet!

I'm just reading it off the stand - those are the names that I see there. I think once the piece of popcorn is removed from Dud Bolt's head, it'll look correct.

Since these are prototypes, I'm sure we'll see more definitive pictures at some point - and almost certainly by SDCC...

06-02-2006, 12:10 PM
I didn't mean to challenge the accuracy of your post, but as TK 842 commented, it looks like the figures arenít yet completed. Itís difficult to reconcile them with the images of their respective characters in the Star Wars Databank. In fact, it looks as though the paint hasn't been thoroughly applied to the figure on the left. I am excited about this particular wave though. All the figures look fantastic so far.

Didn't think you did - was just pointing out the names that were on the stand - from looking at pictures elsewhere in this thread, I think they look pretty close.

I also DEFINITELY believe now that the packing popcorn is protecting the protrusion off the nose of Dud Bolt, look at the link that's in the lead posting to this thread.

But, you're right, they're prototypes, so we'll have to see what the finals look like... Obscuring the face with that piece of whatever-it-is, isn't helping!

That would be the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man we are seeing.

06-02-2006, 03:39 PM
My first thought was that the Dud Bolt fig was an EU Pilot from the video game. The packing popcorn looks like a water jug.

I'm pleased with the choices, Dud Bolt's been on my wish lists for years, though not wanted as badly as Ratts Tyerell, Elan Mak, and Wan Sandage.

Mars Guo isn't a bad character either, and at least we're getting two for the price of one at all, unlike with Chief Chirpa.

I think the selections surprised many with the absense of Fan Choice candidate Ben Quadrinaros, and fan favorite Ratts Tyerell. (My two assumptions for this pack)

Can't wait to have Dud Bolt and Mars Guo join Sebulba, Gasgano, Ody Mandrell, and Teemto Pagalies.

Seven down (including Anakin), eleven to go...

These figures do look to be potentially good (I agree, that looks like a packign peanut). I would have preferred to see Ben Quadinaros in this 2-pack, but I'm glad to see these two, and would like to see all of the Podracers eventually. Hopefully this 2-pack will sell well (I think so, because even for kids, it'll be cool to get two figures for the price of one, even if they are smaller characters), and will lead to more podracers being produced. My only (small) gripe is that it would be nice to get a stand for each figure. Hopefully at least one of them will stand well withou the use of a stand. Definitely look to be some cool figures though.

By the way, does anyone remember way back during POTJ when there were rumors of a series of Pod Pilot two-packs? If there is any truth to that rumor, I wonder if Teemto and these two were already in production. That may explain why these were chosen over Ben. They went ahead with these, but Ben was a contestant in the Fan's Choice, so they didn't have any concrete plans for him yet. Just a thought.

Ball joint necks
standard shoulders
standard hips

Dud: swivel wrists
Mars: swivel right upper arm



whoa. these little guys also surpassed my expectations. i thought they'd both be static completely because there's 2 of them.

but i'll be passing them up because i'm just not a fan of the characters

Both Dud Bolt & Mars Guo are now added to our Photo Archives:

These figures are great! I hope they make more podracers.
The weapons are repaints of Durge's weapons, but relaly, they don't need weapons, do they?

Here's a shot of all the podracers made so far:

Is it just me....or does anyone else think these two are a twisted version of Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner? http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

These figures look great, awesome pictures as always Curto! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I hope there's some more Pod Racers in the 30th Anniversary line.

I noticed some Duds have both ears straight up, while some (mine, and the one Curto took pics of for the Archive) have a bent ear. Anybody know if this is intentional, or is it just the way these figures get crammed into the packaging?

I tried to straighten out my Dud's ear, but it will not. It almost broke off. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/blush.gif

Ha Ha...that seems more than a coincidence...although Mars Guo was the one who crashed on the desert plain, we didn't see what happened to Dud Bolt. (Although the Inside Worlds book says he collided with Ark 'Bumpy' Roose).

Found these guys quite a while back but I just opened them yesterday(I'm not really that big on pod pilots, obviously, lol). Anyhow...........

Anybody else notice that Mars Guo's goggles/headpiece is ENTIRELY WRONG. He actually doesn't have "goggles" per say, but more of like a clear-plastic sheet that goes over his eyes--it's right there on the picture on the card. Mess-ups are totally understandable at times, but I find it really odd that, when the pic is RIGHT THERE NEXT TO THE FIGURE, they can screw that up.
Now again, I'm not a huge fan of pod pilots, but if they're gonna do them, at least do them right. The whole "coolness" behind these guys is the fact that they are so totally unique looking, each in their own right. And I thought that Guo's eyegear was a really nice little touch and big part of his overall uniqueness, thus I feal it rather odd to throw on something as commonplace as a regular old pair of goggles on him when he had something that would have really stood out nicely, no?

Now, believe me, I know this is not nearly as big a deal to most of us as something like an inaccuracy on, say, a Clone's paintjob or a Jedi, etc, but it's the same idea, and I felt it stood out enough worth mentioning. Mr. Curto, I was surprised you didn't mention anything of this in the description, as you normally catch things like this with your VERY keen eye.

Oh god... I just noticed this on mine. Another !@#$%* variant?! Mine has straight ears. And I loved how the one in the RS pics looks.... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

Why did they give us the wrong goggles with Guo?

Just ordered these two from ebay.


They are going to feature in my latest photonovel.


I love the look of these two. A duo of comic villains.

Perhaps to make him more appealing to the casual fans?

Actually the goggles they gave him are the ones he wears in the deleted scene at the beginning of the race when they're annoucing all the racers, and he gets mad at Jar Jar.

Just noticed the other day while watching the scene.

Without my favourite little critters for some time, while they have problems standing I love the paint application on them. Hasbro got them right in my book.

This figure was made nearly 6 years ago, you know? Ratts has just been sold, and Holdfast was sold in 09.

The latest podracers still hold up pretty well but wouldn't mind a redo of the earlier bunch to fit in with current figures.

I thought I got rid of these guys a while back, but they, Ody, Teemto and Gasgano are still available on my trade list.
