Disney Jedi Academy 5-Pack
« on: June 23, 2008, 08:28 PM »
If this does not say the Solo Kids I do not know what does.....

From Raving Toy Maniacs Q& A


3. Three of the most prominent main characters in the expanded universe novels are young female human padawans: Etain (Republic Commando), Starstone (Darth Vader: Rise of the Dark Lord), and Scout (Yoda: Dark Rendezvous). We have never seen a young human female padawan that could be used to fill the role of any of these important characters. Will we ever see a generic female padawan figure? Also, what about human male younglings, such as the ones Anakin kills in Revenge of the Sith? We've had youngling figures in the past, but they were aliens.

Answer: Interesting suggestion. There are some new human younglings coming in 2009 in a very special pack, including at least one female. However, they will not be on basic figure cards. More details will be available in early-to-mid 2009.

Thoughts?

I say its the Solo brats.

Interesting, this could be a battlepack or an Entertainment Earth exclusive?  This is a chance to get some figures to put a padawan training diorama together.  Bring on the human younglings, whoever they may be.

Legacy novel tribute anyone? ::)

I hope it is anyways. I love the series! Im just sad cause the last book is only out on hardcover and I don't feel like shelling out $30+ for a book I will finish in a week. Plus the fact all my other ones except for sacrifice( I got 20% off) are on paperback.

The word younglings makes me think of Jedi's, which doesn't excite me. However, if this means any kids, then my interest is piqued. Could the kister/wald pack be one of them?

To be honest, I'm hoping the "BA_" continues beyond droids...  Padawans would work to me, as would Jedi in general...  Their outfits are similar enough that one good sculpt with a new head would work again and again.  We got the R7, so why not? 

Same goes for other characters though...  Build-A-Trooper would be ideal I think.  Jedi and Troopers though, that'd be my main wish.

I could totally see other droids mixed in too...  If there were good Battledroid parts, tell me this wouldn't be even cooler?  Building a good Battledroid would be really nice considering one doesn't even exist in the line.

EE Exclusive?   Gah, I hope not.  I have difficulty thinking of anything less compelling than short humans with lightsabers.  That's certainly not a scenario I'd push for.  I can't speak for the fanbase at large but I personally would consider those about as exciting as getting yet another Zett Jukassa... which it seemed collectors didn't exactly go bonkers for either.

If fans *really* want those, I hope they're vocal, but to me it seems like I can hear the bottom of the barrel being scraped.  But that's just me.

This could be one of a couple of PT battle packs.  Perhaps the map room from AOTC, with Obi-Wan, Yoda and the younglings.  Or maybe the Jedi Council chamber from ROTS, where Vader kills the younglings.

I'd buy those.  I'd buy those with a smile.   There are all sorts of Ewoks with pilot gear and other stuff in the EU, so yeah, those I could see getting.

Will be interesting to hear more about this.  As a father, I think one of the most disturbing parts of all six movies is that scene with the kid coming to Anakin for help and him igniting his lightsaber and closing the door.  They obviously had to kill off the younglings somehow, but they really didn't have to show it in my opinion.  Making a figure of a young child character who's only role is to show that Anakin killed off a bunch of little kids just doesn't sit right with me.

That being said, I certainly hope that its something like the Solo kids, though I'd much rather have versions of them in their teens.

EDIT: Oh, and the younglings picture isn't showing up on my computer. ???

Never mind, problem solved.

No, don't you know your EU? That's B'a'rrakk Ama'bo. He later flew a Snowspeeder at the Battle of Endor and became the first chancellor of color in the New Republic.

Geez, get it right. ::)
