A 6" scale neck and head on a 3.75" body. It frankly looks like something from The Fifth Element or Farscape much more than Star Wars. Kinda bad.
I think it looks like that because the character looks like that in... Y'know... The movie... The thing all these figures are based off of...A 6" scale neck and head on a 3.75" body. It frankly looks like something from The Fifth Element or Farscape much more than Star Wars. Kinda bad.
I don't even think I'd be mad, it'd be so absurdly stupid I don't think I couldI just hope there is no line in the movie such as "Easy, PZ!" (Lemon squeezy) :grin:
Are you employed as a script writer for American situation comedies? You are very funny, if I do say so.Like a couple guys stated above, it looks to me like it's simply an homage to Greedo (however, Hasbro decided to throw a little something for the little girls in there TOO!).
The story goes, Leia got herself a new protocol droid(C3P0's red arm kept reminding her of a bad experience from high school in the back of Bail's red speeder)......then once the droid got there, Han was like: "Oh please please please you gotta let me design a new head for him, I have a great idea!".
So Han & Chewie get to work designing a head that looks EXACTLY like Greedo so that Han will feel good treating him like a slave, being all rude to him, and have Chewie tear out an arm here & there or shut off one eye every once in a while, lol!!
OK, so everything works out great except for one last thing. They get a little lazy and don't wanna do the paint.....so they send him to this company called "Hasbro" (Han liked it because the letters were kinda like in his name).
After about 2-3yrs, Hasbro get the droid back out to Han & Chewie(the reason for the delay was that Hasbro mistook this as a special single order....they just thought it was business as usual & figured that they were just shipping out their next wave of Black Series figures).
Upon arrival, opening the box in great anticipation, Han, Leia and Chewie nearly start crying at what they see. Han & Chewie had went so far as to include THE ACTUAL F'ING GREEDO MODEL (Lucasfilm generously let them borrow it) so that there would be NO POSSIBLE WAY that Hasbro could mess up the paint aps...(even though Greedo is nearly ONE single solid color for Force's sake). COMPLETELY IGNORING WHAT THE CUSTOMER WANTED----**UH,UM, COUGH, COUGH**----Apparently Hasbro somehow confused this with a My Little Pony order aaaaannnndddd....... thus, the Hasbro designed result. Enjoy Leia!
PS: Upon learning of their catastrophe, Hasbro makes a sincere heartfelt apology and promises that the real one in the "Parking Lot" and should be out by 2027.
Has anyone posted loose images of this figure yet?
