Nien Nunb
« on: December 31, 2006, 12:52 PM »
WE NEED A GOOD NIEN NUNB!
We havent had Nien Nunb in the line for a long time, since 1997-ish. And he has 5 points of articulation!  :P He's an important guy, he copiloted the ship that destroyed the Death Star and he speaks in the movies. Please, make him Hasbro! We dont need SA just BA (BETTER articulation). Would anyone sign a petition cause thats how badly I wanna see him made! Your thoughts guys?

Actually I agree...  I think he's probably one of the poorer sculpts of modern figures right now.

Yeah, I have to agree as well. Not the most exciting character, but an important one and in need of upgrading.

It's people deleting their posts randomly that made us remove it...  It was an abused privilage so we are hoping our readers take more time before they post instead.  It was getting out of hand in some cases, especially where people were "upset" and decided to screw the way our forums look after they threw a fit.

Nien Numb would be a great character to revisit.  Especially in light of how Hasbro did Ten Numb with the removable leather helmet.  I think giving this character who gets a decent ammount of face time in ROTJ (along with being one of the vintage mailaway characters) gives him a certain ammount of cache, and I think that the new pilot gear aesthetic would work well here.  This is one resculpt that I would happily welcome.

Hopefully we'll see him in theVOTC line down the road, or he won't be SA. ::)
