Mara Jade!?!?!

That Lin dude for the Knicks thinks that was out of nowhere...
Slice you open like a tauntaun, faster than the Autobahn,
Or a motorbike in Tron, do the deed and then I'm gone.

I'm content with this.  Not that I feel the need for yet another Mara Jade, but far better than Jocasta Nu.  At least Mara seems like she could whip some ass. :)

Should've bet on the honey, bunny.  :P

A figure that's had 2 figures, abliet not great ones, vs. characters never before made as figures. Yeah, fandom sucks or it was rigged....or both.

I encourage everyone to mail dyed green plush rabbits to Hasbro in protest! Or Depends if you wanted Jocasta.  ;)

Congrats internet on wasting a figure slot on yet another Mara Jade action figure...  maybe they will repurpose those ROTS baby sculpts to give us a baby Ben to go with her.  That's probably the only way I'll bite on yet another Mara...

No anything cool, actually.

I mean, don't get me wrong, I'll take this over Jocasta, but yeah...  She's meh.  Maybe the headsculpt will be neat and I can swap it onto the comic pack Mara and make a cooler figure? T hough honestly I was content with that as it was.  I dunno.

The whole Star Wars presentation was a HUGE let-down.  This is what happens when there's a celebration.  It punches Toy Fair in the dingaling.  NYCC doesn't help either since they showed a good bit too.

So I was thinking, ok, at least it's Mara in a new outfit...

but...

according to my skim of Wookieepedia, she's pretty much like Nancy & Sluggo in that she has basically one outfit in her wardrobe and it's been done twice already in the line.  There's slight differences, but I guess I was expecting some Jedi robes.

I guess you can't keep a Fan Boy... uh...  interested, unless she's in a spandex suit though.

Hopefully they publish the rest of the results somewhere (hopefully someone will ask but I doubt it)

What will that make? The third Mara Jade? Well at least Guri and the big rabbit is on the top twenty. I want the silly rabbit.

Meh, ******, and OK.

Not a very cool top 3 but at least it maybe means Jaxxon gets done at some point.

I'd like to think the Top 20 is a ticket to get made but the 2009 list is still pretty full of holes
