I want Jabba/Gardulla thing! Well besides the fact that Jabba hired Jango to kill her. :P

Uhh... what?

Yah, really... Is it just me, or did Jango die twenty-some years before Gardulla's first appearance?

Actually Gardulla appeared in TPM. Jabba hired Jango to kill her.

For some reason Jabba/Gardulla doesn't say "Holiday Season" to me.  ;)

And I'd trust a "wiki entry" about as much as a Oprah Book of the Month recommendation.  :P

Oh gosh. I saw 'Gardulla' and thought 'Yarna'... all twenty-some times I must've read it. I stand corrected. Still, I think a poorly-selling video game's plot shouldn't be used to un-justify a holiday figure. They are meant to be creative and obviously have no place in Star Wars canon anyway.

Creativity went out the window last year...the other 3 at least were based on a precedent (previous Lucasfilm Holiday Cards). Last years was a test to see what crap people would buy. This years is even better:

LOL. Yeah, the thing is they could've of made a Santa Vader & used a better sculpt. They'd probally re-hash the POTF 2 Jabba for Santa Jabba. ::)

The following is merely an idea and not real...

Santa Squad: $24.99
x1 Santa Clone: Retool of the the ROTS No. 41 figure with metallic red + green with santa hat +pauldron and red and green kama
x3 Elve Clone: Matallic Green repaint of AT-TE Gunner (No pauldron or extra helmet armor piece)

That coming from a Hanukka guy. :P

But hey I'd buy  Santa Clones!

i would love a two pack with santa poggle, a geonosian elf, and a two folded-up battle droids with bows around them on an assembly line. 'Geonosian Toy Factory!' holiday multi-pack...

...or a sings-with-the-push of a button Ackmena!
Yeah, THAT would make my christmas magical(ly terrifying!)  :D  :(
