Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I don't have a CLUE why the Carbonite Jar Jar was made, except that Skywalker Ranch in California supposedly has a life-size version of this hanging on an office wall and some folks at Hasbro and Lucasfilm though it might make for a quirky, weird collectible for the fans.

The regular Jar Jar at the bottom doesn't look too bad. It's supposed to be the best Jar Jar figure ever made with the most screen-accurate likeness, 14 points of articulation and a fabric skirt around his waist. It'll sell like hotcakes in large part because the current Vintage Collection line of premium figures is so hard to find at retail, but that Carbonite one is just...well...pretty lame and a complete waste of tooling and sculpting dollars that would have been much better spent on, say, a new and premium Jawa or Emperor Palpatine. Anything but this stupid turd.
