Re: Jabba\'s Palace Klaatu - ROTJ Wave

Indeed a great looking figure, but I can't help but feel a bit disappointed. I was hoping against hope that Wooof would show this year, but we'll hold on for 2010! I get why they're doing this one, with the Rancor, Malakili, etc. Just hate that I'll have to wait one more year for Wooof.

Awesome figure. He's going to look really nice alongside the updated Rancor Keeper.

Re: Jabba\'s Palace Klaatu - ROTJ Wave

This guy looks great, as does the updated Rancor Keeper. I can understand wanting to see Woof first, but I'm happy to see something new on the Jabba's Palace front (that's not another drummer).

He looks very nice, who's the egg head lady next to him?

We are still getting Woof at some point. Without a doubt Hasbro will get to him!

Great choice. Wondering if we'll get to see the other guard coming the sail barge rail gun too.

Re: Jabba\'s Palace Klaatu - ROTJ Wave

Awesome sculpt and character choice. Can anyone tell if he has knee articulation? His baggy pants make it hard to tell, although I'm pretty sure he does. Regardless, I'm definitely picking this one up.

Looks great, its awesome to see Jabba's palace get some attention. Now if they'd just unveil a new jabba.

The more I see this figure, the more I like it; this might be my favorite of the wave.

Re: Giran - ROTJ Wave

Well, it may not be the classic Kenner "Klaatu" (now called "Wooof" by some), but I'm glad to see Giran. I just hope he's got the arm artic to comfort his buddy when the Rancor bites it.

Giran looks good, but I no longer collect Jabba's Palace denizens and will thus pass.

Re: Giran - ROTJ Wave

Again another good looking figure but not something I really need. I guess this one is saving me money while other collectors get something they really wanted. Its a win-win situation

Agreed! Absolutely FAN-TASTIC job with this guy.
It's just remarkable what Hasbro can achieve when they pull their finger out for a change.


Giran is definitely on my most wanted list!

Agreed, very impressive and nicely detailed sculpt. Giran might be my favourite upcoming figure beside Plo Koon. Might pick up a few to army build.

Re: Giran - ROTJ Wave

Jabba's got a good crop of goons coming down the pike this season - am I missing some bit of information, or are both Nysad and Giran being released in this wave?

Yes.

Looking forward to definitive word or pics on knee articulation... it'd be a shame if the Rancor Keeper gets knees & ankles while this guy's stuck with straight legs.

I care not whether he has ankles or knees, he just looks ACE

Re: Giran - ROTJ Wave

This a random choice AND a beautiful piece of toy art. If the production version looks anywhere near this good, I'll be ecstatic. (I can't even explain WHY I'm enthused here, LOL, I didn't even realize we were getting another palace goon besides Nysad nor can I even remember where in the Sarlaac scenes he shows up but I think he might be a surprise favorite of mine!)

Re: Giran - ROTJ Wave

Unfortunately he's not from the Sarlaac scene, so he's NOT a Skiff Guard....

This guy was the assistant rancor keeper that "cries" with Malakili when Luke offs the Rancor...

But, it's one KLAATU down, three to go.

WOOOF 2010 - accept NO substitutes....

Because he can fight luke with his legs perfectly straight the whole time?

It doesn't matter. I'm pretty sure he has articulated legs. Hasbro seems to be making that mistake much less lately. Thank god...
