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.

I got Mawhonic and Gungan Scouts in the mail today.

Pictures don't even do it justice how little Mawhonic is.  I'm going to take a picture of him next to Ree-Yees and the Gran Senator when I get home.  He's obviously supposed to be a Gran youngling.

Funny thing is the slide from NYCC made him look like a full-sized figure.

Your fantasies are starting to manifest in your hobby Jesse.

Okay here are some pics.  From left to right, we have the Fambaa gungan pack-in, POTJ Gungan, Legacy Gungan, and the last one is the new Walmart exclusive DTF Gungan:



Here's baby Mawhonic with his dad, Ree-Yees.



And while I was cleaning up the Gungans, Hank Pym took to his giant form and snatched Mawhonic off the table.  He was yelling something about detecting a skrull, I dunno:

He looks like he should have a milk in his hand while Ree Yees pats him on the head.

Speaking of...  is Ree Yees too big?  Or Ask Aak or whatever his name was?  3PO's pretty small but I was thinking Ree Yees wasn't a TON taller than 3PO...  might just not remember it well though.

Nobody is that short though except midgets, so to me he's just a midget Gran.

My 3P0 and Ree Yees are about the same height, which correlates well to this pic:

That's about right then I guess.  He's about 3PO's height, but 3PO is supposedly fairly short (err, well Daniels is short anyway, on IMDB).  So 3PO and Ree Yees could both be a little on the taller side.

The Senator Ask Aak or whatever is a taller figure though by about 1/2".

Thanks for the pic Dressel.  Here's another comparison here.

Well, he's gotta fit in a podracer somehow.

Those Gungans all look nce together.  I haven't 'retired' any of my old Gungans, they all still blend pretty nicely with one another.  I wish the same could be said for a large number of other POTF2/POTJ army builders I have...  :P

Walmart exclusive DTF Gungan

Dammit, I laughed.

But yeah, the price of new figures is causing me to pass on podracers (for now) but that Mawhonic is really, really short. I'll be passing initially as well.

I guess the shortness is the reason very few humans race pods. You have to be the size of a child to race one. Now that we have all the racers, where are their pods?

I still think Lucas should have made it a Swoop Race rather than a Pod Race.
