The Han Solo figure looks pretty cool, especially with that ramp!  However, I'm not too keen on the Yoda figure.  I just wish it wasn't such a crazy looking action pose.  If they ever make it to my neck of the woods I'm sure I will still pick them up.

It's interesting to see people's reactions to Yoda.  Mine and seemingly everyone else's is pretty similar to how I felt about Jango and Maul.  Turn the Maul figure slightly and it looks much better than the promo shots.  That saber full length is pretty cool too.  

For Jango, as soon as I removed (or never put in) baby Boba, it looks really cool.  Wonder if I can customize the upcoming Obi figure to make it a rain battle?

Hey, how about an unleashed old man Kenobi ;D

I don't care for the McFarland-style figures, although I've picked up a couple (Jango and Padmé).  Han's a must-have, just because he's my favorite character in the OT, and I do like the running-up-the-ramp pose.  The others, I might pick up if they're on clearance.

Yoda is decent, his face reminds me of ET or something, I dunno... Han Solo is cool, I'm just not used to seeing an Unleashed without some kind of force-jello all around the charactor... I'd get the Solo before I got the Yoda, and I don't plan on looking for either...

I still think that Emperor Palpatine is the best at this point.  :-[

i will get them.

The Han Solo looks outstanding!

Yoda, well Episode 2 ruined Yoda for me so I do not really like him. I will get him though to add to my collection.

Who wants more Unleashed?!?!
« Reply #36 on: May 5, 2003, 12:48 PM »
Seeing the new Yoda has me pumped and at first I was very skeptical of this line.  I had no desire to get any of them until I actually bought them and the detail poses and coolness made me an Unleashed Freak.  I realize the line isn't for everyone but why not put together a list, here is mine:

As of right now the upcoming figures are:

Luke (Jedi)
Palpatine/Sidious
Obi-Wan (AOTC)
Yoda (AOTC)
Han Solo (ANH)
Boba Fett

1. R2-D2 (Eletro-effect, tools all over the place)
2. Chewbacca (Howling in the Bespin Jail)
3. Leia (Trash Compactor, including Wet Dress :-*))
4. Ewoks (Wicket and Paploo in the final battle)
5. Scout Trooper
6. Lando (Bespin Escape)
7. Hoth Han (Brown Coat, Swirling Snow)
8. C-3PO (Covered in Slime)
9. Emperor's Royal Guard (Shocking effects, flowing red robes)
10. Ice Cream Maker Guy, melting Ice Cream, Sweating profusely, 39 flavors

Unleashed? Who buys that crap!?  ::)



I am all for any new OT characters, including Ewoks, Stormtroopers, or Bounty Hunters.

Hey, David? Could you post your Unleashed display?

What about a Stormtrooper?  I'm rather surprised this isn't on your list Scott.  

And Ewoks?  Yeah, right after they make an Unleashed Jar Jar ::)

Stormtroopers just don't do anything for me visually compared to their bretheren the Scout and even Snowtroopers...they would be in a top 20 for sure along with some cool Cantina and Jabba's aliens...

Unleashed Max Rebo...

Here are mine!

I'd love to see an Unleashed Ewok... in fact, I demand it.  :-*

An unleashed Jabba might be sorta cool... I dunno what kind of pose we're talking about but I can imagine a good OT sculpt with him eating a frog or something.

It won't be long before we see an Unleashed Tusken, I hope.

I like the unleasehed series so far. Except for Yoda! Episode 2 ruined Yoda for me.

I would like to see the line continue.
I want a Qui-Gon Jinn, Jar Jar Binks, Lando, and more.

Here you go Jango Fettish!

Ah Scott, you're just not using your imagination.  Think about this:  A stormtrooper with a blast hitting him in the chest, knocking him back into the wall of the death star hangar.  Perfect complement to Han Unleashed.

Brad, you aren't taunting me because of what I said on another board, are you? ;)

Unleashed need to be dynamic characters.  While I love Jabba as much as the next guy (or gal), what's the Un-Jabba gonna be, drooling ferociously? :o

Chewie's a great choice for unleashed, so workable in so many ways.  I really wish they hadn't wasted a Vader with the redux.  They could have done a two pack or even three pack with Vader, Palpatine and Jedi Luke on the death star, just a much more dynamic version of the cinema scene.  Now that would be cool.
