Agree 100%. I think the cups are cool but kinda useless. I’d rather have the staff. If they’d included that and got the head colors right, this would be the rare knockout. I think the head sculpt is fantastic despite the blue. I’ll definitely get it and repaint the domeOverall, I like it. But the blue paint on the head and lack of staff make it an OK figure instead of a great figure.
I believe you are correct, searching for screenshots of ROTJ, I see no staff.Way to long since I last saw ROTJ, but did he even had a staff there, or is this just a "burned-into-everyones-mind-relic" from the vintage figures ?
Lol I want to read more about this!I predict also that the eventual carded ROTJ release will tone down the blue. Or, by then we will all know how to fix it.
I'm still frustrated that, at what action figures cost, we always have to alter them somehow to get them right.
There's a good story that I will probably butcher here, but the original Bib Fortuna mask had air bladders built into it to make it pulsate or throb or something, and when Lucas saw it in action, he forbade it immediately, because he thought it looked sexual and gross. Kind of like he did with the worm creature in the Cantina that originally spat green goo! History could've been different, and we'd be talking about wanting an "action feature" for this figure for accuracy!
I think they're excluding it to make the figure more screen accurate, though rumor has it that the staff was under his robes.I believe you are correct, searching for screenshots of ROTJ, I see no staff.
The only staff shown is from the Mando clips when he has gained considerable weight.
