Needa is coming says Hasbro!
« on: April 13, 2007, 06:31 PM »

From, http://cgi.denpetersen.com/YAK1/viewtopic.php?t=1583

1. Okay, I love all the Imperial officers that you have been producing over the last few years. But I still have an empty slot in my Empire Strikes Back collection for the ill fated Captain Needa. Any sense on when I might be able to fill that spot with an action figure?

HASBRO: We can't tell you for certain when he will come out, but it's a good bet that in the next two years you will have him in 3-3/4" format.

That is very, very cool! Hopefully he comes with articulated knees and both a choking and a non-choking headsculpt.

This is certainly welcome news.  I've been on the verge of putting Needa on my TESB wantlist here for a while, but I thought some other characters needed my vote.  I think that after Ozzel, Piett and Veers that Needa was the most significant Imperial officer in Empire, and I guess Hasbro agrees.  Based on their wording, I'm guessing that we might get Needa next year.

Yeah, I am happy for a Captain Needa.  It would be nice to get 2 heads...normal and...well....dead.  I think Hasbro will just have a normal version head.

No, if Hasblo were to only give us one it'd be an ugly choking/dead head, kinda like Captain Antilles.

I'll take absolutely any new figure Hasbro makes for the OT (and even more specifically for TESB) but I can't say I'm ecstatic about him.  I'd say we need a Piett resculpt more desperately, but I won't turn away from a Needa.

One of my favourite 'minor' moments from the OT is "Apology accepted, Captain Needa".  I can't wait for this figure!
