Your Favorite Jedi?
« on: July 25, 2006, 01:38 PM »
After seeing a number of different characters and species represented in the Jedi Order throughout the prequel trilogy, are there any that stand out to you personally as your favorite?  Of course we have the "big guns" of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, and Mace Windu - are there any others that are favorites of yours?

Personally, there are a number of neat designs and characters, but there are a few that stand out to me.  Of course, the well known ones:

Luke Skywalker (if we're talking OT too - my favorite)
Obi-Wan Kenobi (maybe my favorite character of the PT)
Yoda (although it was different, seeing him with a lightsaber for the first time gave me chills)
Mace Windu (Sam Jackson is just cool, and the character was good as well)
Anakin Skywalker (if you consider him Jedi - or Sith)

As far as background Jedi, some of my favorites would be:

Plo Koon
Kit Fisto
Coleman Trebor
Pablo Jill
Aayla Secura
Shaak Ti
Roron Corobb - "Hammerhead" Jedi from Clone Wars (I wouldn't mind seeing a "realistic" figure of this in the basic line)
Saesee Tiin
Ki Adi Mundi

Just interesting looks from the various alien Jedis, and I can't think of any in particular I didn't like.  Kit Fisto and Plo Koon would probably be a couple of my favorites overall, but I like pretty much all of them.

Well...my computer would crash every time I left Taris, so I never got to see Bastilla get over being a piss ant. She isn't on my list.

Loved:

Korto Vos
Aayla Secura
Tholme
Plo Koon
Saesae Tiin


God, there are so many, but that's the creme de la creme for me

Obi-Wan Kenobi.

If you read the ROTS novel, there's a point where Mace Windu tells him that he only mastered a single light saber style because he has no particular weakness.  Yoda had a style due to compensate for his stature and Mace had a certain style to compensate for some sort of inner darkness, but Obi-Wan had no such flaw.

In essence, Obi-Wan was the perfect Jedi.

Obi-Wan is my favorite Jedi also.  Although it could be argued that he was far from perfect.  His flaw was his attachment to Anakin  -- his love for Anakin blinded him.  While not necessarily a bad character trait, we know the Jedi's view on attachment.......

Remember what Bindo said to Revan

"Love doesn't lead to the dark side. Passion can lead to rage and fear, and can be controlled, but passion is not the same thing as love. Controlling your passions while being in love, that's what they should teach you to beware, but love itself will save, not condemn you."
Jolee Bindo to Revan when discussing love.

Pablo Jill's such an awesome design...  The upside down head, the goofy walk...  I wish he had a better figure really, but he's up there for my favorite.  Kit Fisto's there too though, despite his somewhat similar looks to a Twi'Lek.  Kit's a pretty bitchin' Jedi though, and too bad he and 2 others went out like such punks in E3, as they did.  :(

Yoda and Obi Wan are definitely tops for me (of course, there aren't many others that we get to learn a lot about).
