Yes, he's really nice and a good companion to the last Warrior figure they made.  Nice accessories too.  I really had hoped the BAD was coming with the binocs.  Still seems the Gungan paint aps are going to be toned down a bit compared to 1999, which is a little disappointing.  The originals actually had really intricate skin deco and that appears to be done away with.

Good SA figure though, makes a very specific Gungan but at the same time makes a nice generic one.

I used the guy with the horn to make a nice little army, but i'd pick more than a few of these up too if I can find them easily enough I think.

He is a nice figure.  And who knows?  Maybe with the release of the TPM in the theaters I may actually be able to find a couple of them at retail!

I like it.  I even know where to place it on my battle of anaboo shelf!

So, I was updating my loose figure spreadsheet last night and added some rows for these figures...

In the "Card Type" column, I put MHM and then added MHM = Movie Heroes - Maul to my acronym list.

And then, in the "group" column, I put DTF for Discover the Force.  Sadly, the next thought that popped into my brain was DJ Pauly D yelling, [jerseyshore]"Yo, these Walmart figures are DTF!"[/jerseyshore]

So does anyone know whats up with Mawhonic being so short? Or is that how tall he actually is in the move? I always figured he was regular Gran sized.

I know in the TPM video game he's short. So I think he is supposed to be shorter but maybe not that short. On Wookieepia it lists his height as 1.5 the same as Leia.

I'm over here trying to clean my sneakers. I can't concentrate, all this fighting. They're talking about relationships, my sneakers are dirty.

Anyway, apparently my walmart is actually expecting this wave...I hate Walmart exclusives.  ::)

The gungan is really nice, as well as the  torso, his head is  an all new sculpt as well. Although this guy doesn't sport the extra skin detail of the old Episode I gungans, it looks like they've had a go at it on the Movie heroes Jar Jar.

What is the expected ship date on this wave? Has anyone seen it out?

Yeah, I was wondering if these are expected to hit on the 30th like everything else.  I've seen all the other figures out early here, but no sign of these.  I wasn't really planning on hitting the stores unless this wave is expected as well, wouldn't mind having a few of them and the WM exclusives are very hit and miss locally.

The NYCC slide had the 1/30 date on these.

There were some NYCC reports that said these may come in those endcap/display trays.  If that is the case, then maybe the reason these haven't leaked out yet is because no Walmarts have put out those island displays yet or something.

Or, much like every other Walmart exclusive, they could get them weeks (months?) after they were supposed to arrive. :P

I was thinking these might show up in shipper boxes and be put out as some sort of pallet display next week, but the pegs in the aisle are ready for these with price stickers... who knows. 

Still a bit irritated that Mawhonic is the height of a Jawa, even if he is accurate that way.  I like my Grans big and tough looking.
