Happy to see a Neimoidian Captain. Hopefully he'll be more successful than the N. warrior.

It will ultimately depend on distribution, but I wouldn't count on it.

I hope this guy will have articulated knees, so he can sit down. Let's hope it's no remake of the Gunray mold. At the other end, the Rune Haako mold has never been used after 'TPM' ...

By the way, has anyone got a picture of Lushros from the movie? I've tried Google but nothing ever comes up. I've honestly forgotten what he looks like beyond the fact his hat is exactly like Daultay's. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/confused.gif

Essentially, he'll look something like his deceased relative Daultay Dofine, then.

He definately should have been part of the TPM Wave.

Somehow, I thought we'd have Daultay first, but, meh.

I'm happy we're getting the character. I'm not happy that he'll probably pegwarm. I'm less happy that he'll probably deserve to pegwarm (Neimoidians always seem to get the short end of the stick in terms of articulation.)

It's great that we are getting him. I hope this is a precursor to Hasbro finally making Tey How. I was actually surprised when he wasn't announced as part of the TPM wave

Yeah if there is one Neimodian I want besides a ROTS Nute Gunray it would be Tey How. That is the one with the eye goggles correct?

Her and Sil Unch. Tey is the one at the beginning of the film who has the heavily synthesized voice; Sil appears later on and is the one who tells Daultay Dofine the reactor is about to go kablooey.

Incidentally, I think it'd be wrong if Tey was made before Daultay. However, considering she and Sil look exactly like alike (especially with the goggles and mouthpieces), one could buy two, one to be Tey and one to be Sil. Not quite an army builder, but a good way to have both characters regardless of which one Hasbro decides (if ever) to make.

Still, I want Daultay Dofine first. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Here's a question for my fellow Neimoidian fans.

From where did the name "Lushros" originate? That one line on the Invisible Hand's Databank entry? It's not mentioned in Labyrinth of Evil, the ROTS novelization, the Dark Horse comic, or the film itself. In fact, the only other place I've seen the name mentioned is right here. What gives?

I first heard it from theforce.net's encyclopedia, and I was like, "Wow, that guy must be related to Daultay!" Then I read it in the Star Wars Databank. I'm unsure when and where it was decided to make him Daultay's cousin (or nephew, depending on the source).

I wonder what his packin will be? The chair is a little to big.

Personally I wouldn't mind if he just came-as-he-is. Like Rune says the command chair is a bit too big to try and stuff into the bubble I think, and I honestly can't think of any accessories he'd need (and lord I hope his miter isn't removable, as I hate needlessly removable headgear especially when the characters never took it off in the movie - was one of my biggest complaints with the Lott Dod fig).

Lott Dodd from the AOTC line. peg-warmer. Separatist three-pack from a few years back. somewhat peg-warmers. Neimoidian soldier. peg-warmer.

Well, that kind of reasoning doesn't apply to us because, pegwarmers or not, we actually like these characters. If they're pegwarmers, woo-hoo, that means more for us! If you don't like the Neimoidians, fine. But I really don't like it when people say we shouldn't be able to get the characters we want just because no one thinks they'll sell well.

Admittedly, I've railed against the continued production of Clonetrooper figures, but I feel somewhat justified considering Clonetrooper fans have got hundreds of the little buggers while we Neimoidian lovers haven't got much in the way of selection. And considering how few Neimoidians there are in the PT, we ask for so little...

yeah, well, do you wanna know why there are more clones? because there are more clone trooper fans out there, and they sell like a jillion times better.

Kooshmeister
11-05-2005, 01:45 PM
I'm aware of that. I'll ask you not to rub it in, though. But my point still stands. Clonetrooper fans have got more Clones than they know what to do with. Counting Lushros, we Neimoidian fanboys will have only seven different Neimoidians, one of which is a cheapo repaint.

What can I say? Like anyone else in the minority I see the majority getting what they want in droves, getting their Commander Bacaras and their Commander Gees (and although I've seen a lot of Clone fans griping about Gree, at least they have a Gree, period), while I can't have my Daultay Dofine or Gilramos Libkath.

So maybe you can understand why I'm just a little bit grumpy.

Roton7
11-05-2005, 02:09 PM
to kooshmeister:
1.) I'm not rubbing it in, i'm just making a point.
2.) yes, i know there are nearly too many clones out there. i agree with that.
3.) even though we clone fans seem to get plenty, it's not like there aren't characters out there that we want and don't have. Like you said, there are a couple of Neimoidians that you want but don't have, and the same goes with us. lots of people would love to get an Appo, Thire, Neyo, and others.

We already have commander Thire and Appo. They look exactly like their troops. Unless you want the concept Appo which we will never get since he didn't appear in the movie that way. I agree we need Neyo and Faie but Revenge of the Sith has been out for less then a year. We need characters who we've been wanting to get a figurine of for years. The neoimodian fans have been waiting for a Daultay for six years.

The thing about Lushros is they'll have the body sculpt for Tey How, Yee Moh, the other Neimoidians in the Outlander Club, and one of the Geonosis Neimoidian Ground Crewmen since thier outfits are the same as his. (They just need to make new heads.)

3.) even though we clone fans seem to get plenty, it's not like there aren't characters out there that we want and don't have. Like you said, there are a couple of Neimoidians that you want but don't have, and the same goes with us. lots of people would love to get an Appo, Thire, Neyo, and others.



We already have commander Thire and Appo. They look exactly like their troops. Unless you want the concept Appo which we will never get since he didn't appear in the movie that way. I agree we need Neyo and Faie but Revenge of the Sith has been out for less then a year. We need characters who we've been wanting to get a figurine of for years. The neoimodian fans have been waiting for a Daultay for six years.





6 years...wow. Ive waited almost 11 for Death Star II Luke Skywalker...

What kind of articulation are you guys hoping for?



A ball-jointed head would be awesome, but it's not neccessary for me. I think we can expect swivel shoulders, swivel elbows and swivel wrists at least. I'd like waist articulation but again I don't think it's terribly neccessary. Knees and ankles will depend on wether or not he comes with his command chair... I hope they skip it and pack him with some computer consoles or a PK droid.

I'm unbelievably excited about this figure. I've been waiting for a Neimoidian naval officer since TPM. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif Come on Hasbro, show me a picture already!

All robed figures should feature the same type of articulation as Graxol Kelvyyn:

Keep in mind, with a good paintjob and perhaps a layer of material above it would be easier to hide the articualtion.

I'm hoping he doesn't come with his chair, or with soft goods robes. He won't mesh with the other robed Neimoidians then. Besides, I hate soft goods (aka CLOTH!).

And not that I'm unhappy to be getting a new Neimoidian, but I wonder why they chose to make Lushros in lieu of Daultay? Daultay's been on a lot of people's want lists for some time now, much longer than ROTS has been in theaters.

The guy sounded like someone from the WWF. Maybe Dod's been taking steroids and "Gilramos Libkath" is his stage name for when he wrestles for the NWF (Neimoidian Wrestling Federation)? That'd clear up the Dod vs. Gilramos debate right there. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

Getting back on topic, if Lushros is a captain just like Daultay was, why is his outfit the same as Tey How's? Daultay wore cool-looking royal blue robes and a silver clasp just beneath his collar. Has Tey's light grey robes with the dark grey mantle become the official Neimoidian naval officer's attire by the time of ROTS?

Not really. Their faces are shaped differently if one pays attention. For example, Nute's large chin and flat face, Rune's prominent eyebrow ridges and kinda-sorta snout, Gilramos' big fat lips, and so forth. And unlike the Clonetroopers they wear outfits that help further distinguish them from one another. Pretty outfits. With lots of bright primary colors. And hats in interesting shapes.

Well they're all dressed exactly like Lushros anyway, and none of them have the weird goggle things that Tey How and Sil Unch wore in TPM, so even if we are just getting a generic Neimoidian crew member, we're still technically getting Lushros. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

On a minor note, what I wanna know is where these guys came from. All scenes of the Invisible Hand's bridge prior to this show only Lushros and battle droids, and then suddenly all these Neimoidians come (literally) running out of the woodwork. Is this a blooper, or is th Invisible Hand's bridge a lot bigger than it looked?

EDIT: Minor note number two - I find it amusing that the battle droids on the bridge have a sense of self-preservation, something their cousins in TPM and AOTC severely lacked. Except for the brief bit in AOTC where the two battle droids back away from the acklay going "Uh-oh!" this is, to my knowledge, the only time we see battle droids fleeing.

Except for the brief bit in AOTC where the two battle droids back away from the acklay going "Uh-oh!" this is, to my knowledge, the only time we see battle droids fleeing.



But it's also the only time we've seen pilot droids in combat.

I don't hate neimodians, and yes they usually are good figures, it's just they have no appeal to a general mass, and that is why they pegwarm.

He's still a Neimodian that won't sell!! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif



Hate to say it, but as much as the neimoidians warmed the pegs, every last one of them sold here. Mainly because of Xmas shoppers. I never thought that would happen in a million years. They got popular. The only figs that I actually saw on clearance were Mon Mothma and the Palpatine Chanselor fig. I was shocked. I sure as heck didn't buy any, though... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif



Nemodians are like shelf paper, right know they both line the bottoms of kid's toyboxes.

I actually wanted to pick up 5-10 Nemodian Warriors on clearance after Christmas, but they all majically vansished the week before Christmas. NOW who will I have to turn and run at the first sign of my Jedi's.

As far as Lushros Dofine, is their anyone else here that thinks some "Nemodian lover" has compromising naked pictures of some Hasbro Exec.?

Great looking figure! Good idea throwing in the Invisible Hand controls. Don't really care that it's a "salt shaker". All I ask is that his hat can come off (which Hasbro is getting very good with nowadays).

I think he looks great. Like many of the "Senator-type" (I know he's not a Senator) figures before him, he may not be that exciting of a figure, but the sculpt is damn-near perfect. Count me in for one.

I bet he's not going to pegwarm...well, at least not as much as the Neimoidian Warrior pegwarmed.

Which brings me to my next point. Why does everyone thing he'll pegwarm just 'cuz he's a neimoidian? I understand that Neimoidians have a tendency to pegwarm, but this is by far the best neimoidian ever! All of you guys that say he will pegwarm will be proven wrong.

I'm not trying to start a fight or anything, but it's just that you guys won't listen.

Well it's ABOUT DANG TIME!!! He looks utterly awesome! Gimme, gimme, gimme, I need, I need, I need!

His miter looks a little too small, but that's okay. Also, I'm a little disappointed he's being called Neimoidian Pilot instead of Lushros Dofine (what is this? A throwback to the AT-AT Commander / General Veers thing?), but he'll always be Lushros to me.

That or Rebelscum was wrong about it being Lushros Dofine, or maybe EE is wrong and it's still Lushros.

Looks like a great figure. Even if it pegwarms it's perfect custom fodder as well. The articulation is lacking but really...what more could be done? Everything appears in proportion and I was hoping for one of these since I saw ROTS. He'll make a great stand in in dios. I'm also impressed that they didn't just put him there as a good figure with nothing going for him. His Invisible Hand Computer console also looks great and if the final product looks anything near as good as this I must say I'll be more impressed with him then Cody. Commander Cody is well...a clone and while that's nice they've done them perfect before. This seems like the Neimoidian we've been waiting for.
