I have to agree with this. Every cantina alien should be able to sit, and it looks like only so few can.r2ofthejungle said:i couldnt ask for anythign more from hasbro for a Cantina alien. He can sit, he can stand, he's got a gun and a drink-
sounds like a good cantina alien to me.
I think, actually, it's perfect the way Hasbro has been making the case assortments as of late. That one extra alien/ancillary figure put into a case is the one that ALWAYS ends up being the pegwarmer (see--Lushros Dofine in Saga'06, Nemoidian Warrior in ROTS, Lobot in OTC, etc, etc).Trooper31 said:That's a good point. I would like to see how the Cantina aliens would do at 2x per case. I still think they would sell well.
Because Jedi need to have a wide range of movement with their hips, such as this year's Jedi Luke. Unless you take a razor blade to Mace Windu's plastic skirt, the only parts of his lower body that he can bend are his knees and ankles. Lot of good that does for a Jedi.batmasterson said:So Elis has no cloth, yet he can sit down perfectly with the soft plastic. And it looks terrific since it's molded, it actually appears to "drape" properly. So why can't ALL figures be like this? Why can't Jedi have a soft plastic skirt instead of a cloth one so that they don't look so mismatched?
This is another case of beauty being in the eye of the beholder. I'll give you that plastic garments look fine (if not a little too shiney), but then again, statues look pretty nifty too. But the thing they have in common is that they can't move.batmasterson said:But if the plastic on a Jedi skirt was the same as Elis's, it would work perfect. They've just used too hard of a material usually.
Frankly, I think this year's Jedi Luke is appalling to look at due to the cloth.
Yeah--since the 2005 Cantina wave, there has been a renaissance of Cantina figures, a couple of really great additions every year. Feltipern and Myo are still among my favorite Cantina figures, partly because I was so pleasantly surprised that Hasbro would bring to plastic life such obscure yet cool-looking aliens. It's what got me back into collecting more routinely now. I too aim to complete a Cantina diorama.Jangodo said:Finally got him! I love how the Cantina aliens have been so good since 2004-ish. I have this dream of someday building a Cantina diorama, and the more aliens to populate it with, the better. Elis's likeness is absolutely perfect. The bar section was a great addition too.
The exact same thing happened to me. I hadn't bought any Star Wars toys in two years, and then I found these guys. It got me back into the hobby.trevagg said:Feltipern and Myo are still among my favorite Cantina figures, partly because I was so pleasantly surprised that Hasbro would bring to plastic life such obscure yet cool-looking aliens.

Yeah, most of them have a pink tint.KillerVole said:Mine has a definite pink tint. I thought they were supposed to. I'll have to keep an eye out for a pure white version, the pink does look a little strange.
The link doesn't go anywhere. Anyway, this figure is pretty good. My only problem is that he doesn't stand very well.Sorry I'm reviving this topic, I just want to comment on this figure.
I absolutely love it! His detailing is nice, his face is wonderfully executed, and he's most certainly my favorite Cantina patron. I have 1 right now and am getting a second for Christmas. I actually drew the character a while back.
