I'm totally amazed that NONE of the big Star Wars figure/statue
companies have a Qui Gon Jin statue or figure available!

Gentle Giant? No

Attakus? Nyet

Sideshow? Nein

Kotobukiya? Nope

What gives? Anybody have any inside info on a Qui Gon Jin
statue or 1/4 scale mixed-media figure, or anything? Totally
ridiculous that there is NOTHING available in the marketplace
(to my knowledge) at this point for him.

Not a bust.

Not a lightsaber mini replica

Not a lightsaber full scale replica.

Not a statue.

Not a figure.

C'mon! What does it take to get Qui Gon some love!

I believe a full scale MR Qui-Gon Jinn lightsaber is planned for 2006.

Yep, MR confirmed over at rebelscum that a full-size and .45 mini are coming next year - the .45 Qui-gon was gonna be part of the 2006 CS kit but they've changed their minds on that. They're releasing more details of next years line-up end of Sept/early Oct :banana :banana :banana

lightsabers would be nifty, but I want a 1/4 scale figure, or a
1/6th (or 1/5th if Attakus) statue of him. The pose I'd choose
is when he is battling Darth Maul, when he has his lightsaber
drawn back and to the right, with an "intent" look on his face.
(not intent enough apparently, considering the outcome) :x

Sideshow does have the 12" line coming. Personally I wouldn't have expected a premium format Qui Gon from SS.

Definately want that .45 saber :bliss

I tend to agree with you. I can think of nothing better than to have all 3 fighters made as 1/4 scale.

Personally I wouldn't have expected a premium format Qui Gon from SS.

What?! I think Qui-Gon is absolutely essential. He is basically the "main character" of Episode I. He certainly has more screen time in the PT than Dooku, Maul, Grievous, Jango Fett, and others who many people want a 1/4 version of.

I hope that if they want to do 25 pieces, that at least 10 are from the PT.

My 10 from the PT would be:

1. Qui-Gon
2. Obi-Wan (Ep. 3)
3. Anakin (Ep. 3)
4. Darth Maul
5. Dooku
6. Grievous
7. Padme
8. Ep. 2 Clone
9. Ep. 3 Clone
10. Mace Windu

I didn't include Sidious, since I would rather have an Ep. VI Emperor, and I don't need 2 of him. He just has robes anyway.

I usually find the girls like Padme and Ep. IV Leia to be slightly boring, but I guess Padme "must" be made. Aayla Secura, would be a much more visually interesting female figure, IMO, but she's really not important to the story.

The hardest to leave off the list for me was the Battle Droid, but I really want a Mace figure with light-up purple saber. :rock

HeraldElrond
09-01-2005, 07:26 AM
1. Anakin Ep. 3
2. Maul
3. Obi Ep. 3
4. Obi Ep. 1
5. Jango
6. Mace
7. Yoda
8. Qui Gon
9. Greivous
10. Ep. 2 and 3 clones with MANY variants, even though all I really want is a camo scout trooper from Ep. 3, and maybe a shock trooper. Don't really care if Dooku is made one way or the other.

Gazmog
09-01-2005, 07:52 AM
Prequel musts:

Battle droid
Maul (Tatooine or Theed)...don't care
Qui-Gon
Obi-Wan
Anakin (Mustafar)
Amidala (Theed Palace)
Threepio (Eps 1, 2 & 3)...the 'evolution thing'
Yoda
Clone troopers (2 & 3)...inc. commander(s)
Mace
Jango
Maybe another Jedi Council member, preferably Ki-Adi-Mundi or Plo Koon.

They could always go the Elektra route with the Clone Troopers and have the exclusive and regular editions be different colors.

Gruson
09-01-2005, 08:05 AM
Nice pics guys!

PLEASE Sideshow, make a set of all three "Duel of the Fates" characters!

1/4 Maul, Qui-Gon, and Kenobi would be a must have for me.

I would even accept just Maul and Qui-Gon. ;)

tomandshell
09-01-2005, 09:32 AM
I would love a set of all three in 1/4 scale. While I prefer the Episode II Obi-Wan, the youngest possible McGregor Kenobi might put some space between this one and the Guinness Obi-Wan 1/4 figure. The trick would be posing each of the three to be in battle with each other, yet to have each one look cool on its own for those who don't have the whole set. These three would make me very happy.

darthrage
09-01-2005, 09:41 AM
Don't get me wrong Elwood, I'm not saying he doesn't warrant one, I just didn't expect to see it made. With the 12" line pending I would imagine SS will be quite selective about who gets done in premium format.

Exclusive with a hole in the chest? :lol :lol :lol

After hearing the Vader fisherman comments, I shudder to think about batterup Qui Gonwith his saber held like he's waiting for a good pitch. That pose could go either way - look really good or pretty bad.

As far as the duel of teh fates trio, I could have sworn I heard someone from sideshow say there would only be one premium format per charactor. So that would mean no young Obi Wan. I could absolutely be utterly mistaken on that though. Perhaps someone from Sideshow could confirm or deny?

Since they have already discussed the possibility of a Dagobah Luke with Yoda on his back in the 1/4 scale, I don't think that "the one figure per character" rule stands.

Gazmog
09-01-2005, 10:56 AM
IMO, whoever spread the news around that only 25 would be made should be tarred and feathered. :evil Utter lunacy to set restrictions on which character should or should not be made. SSW did that back when they published a comprehensive array of products for LOTR...and now look where it got them.

What is so wrong with the 'go with the flow' attitude of waiting and seeing? That's what makes these conventions so highly anticipated: the uncertainty and the hype.

IIRC, the SS interview with Jedi Defender said that Qui-Gon was a high probability for the 1/4 PF format. I agree though, we need a high-end statue of him to go along with the MR saber coming next year.
I like the PT list I see too, but I gotta go with at least one female Jedi since we don't have any high-end statue's of'em. My first choice would be Aayla Secura, but Shaak Ti would be awesome too.

Gruson
09-01-2005, 11:47 AM
Mini,

I seriously doubt there will be a female 1/4 Jedi made.

There are just too many other characters that deserve a 1/4 piece before them.

As a matter of fact Mini, I will BUY YOU the 1/4 female Jedi if Sideshow does make one!!

It's not happening.

That is excellent news - I had not heard that. Thanks.

Mini Rock
09-01-2005, 12:18 PM
Whether there are more deserving character's to be made is only opinion. I still remain hopeful that SS will make one in 1/4 format, and if it doesn't happen, it doesn't happen; but, you can bet I'll hold you to your comment. ;) :D

RichardW
09-01-2005, 12:23 PM
Maybe at some point SS will hold a survey for a PF of a non-main character. That'd be the best way to determine the popularity of a second-tier character to see if it's worth making. I guarantee one of the Jedis or bounty hunters would probably win.

If they did, we should all vote for Aayla Secura just so Gruson would have to buy one for Mini. :lol

Top ten 1/6 PT figures to be made (no particular order):

2. Darth Maul with cloak, lighsaber (divides in half), wrist com, Exclusive Probe droid.
3. Count Dooku with lightsaber, cape, death star plans, force lightning, Exclusive removable head and hands.
4. Darth Sidious with cloak, lightsaber, force lightining, cane, Exclusive additional non-deformed head.
5. Jango Fett with blasters, 2 jetpacks, dart, grappling hook, flames, Exclusive removable head and addtional dented helmet.
6. Mace Windu with robes, lightsaber, attachable force lightning, Exclusive removable hand.
7. Ep. III Anakin Skywalker with robes, addtional robotic hand, lightsaber, Exclusive additional Sith eyes head.
8. Ep III Obi-Wan with robes, lightsaber, Anakin's hilt, Exclusive baby Luke.

10. Ep. III 501st Clone Trooper (since no white ones were seen) with blaster, rifle, Exclusive site markings (shockrooper, Utapu, etc.).

* Gen. Grevious not included due to complex new body that would have to be made, nearly impossible for Sideshow without him being $$$!

Not a lightsaber full scale replica.

That's not actually true. Phoneline from this message board has one. Before Master Replicas was in business, their main deisgner made a Qui Gon Jin Saber. I was holding it in my hand. Real nice piece. It was not mass marketed like MR pieces, but none the less, it was a real nice piece. I believe 50 were produced.

Thanks,

I would buy SOME prequel characters, as I think I stated in this thread: Maul, Qui-Gon, Kenobi (ep1), and even a battle droid (hopefully yellow) or destroyer droid.

I think that's it. ;)

Boss Nass? Please! I would rather have Jar Jar!

A friend of mine saw my Star Wars Unleashed Display and said he had something to bring over.

Click on the picture and then look next to the red Ep.2 Clone Trooper. My Unleashed Collection with QuiGon (http://www.azogscollection.com/azogsgallery/displayimage.php?album=lastup&cat=10016&pos=4)

He's not as good as the Unleashed Figures but fits in perfectly!
