« on: January 9, 2005, 11:55 PM »
What the heck is this thing?

Episode III Beastie

 ???

And will he come with a pack-in figure?

I believe Obi-Wan's his pack-in, but since I'm not keeping up with the spoilers much I'm not entirely sure on that.

Thanks for the pic, that thing looks too cool! 

And yeah, I am 99% sure that Obi Wan rides it in his chase of Grievious.

Yeah, I believe Chewie is right about this being Obi-Wan's ride in the Grievous pursuit.  It looks pretty cool to me, and well sculpted from what we can see in that picture.

I am always a sucker for the beasts.  This one looks pretty cool.  Hope it's a long chase scene.  Hopefully this time it won't look to fake (Anakin on the Acklay comes to mind - cringe).

I think Anakin got on the Reek instead of the Acklay, you probably just got the name switcharoo.

I agree this beast looks very promising.  I think I might get a few extras if they ever go on clearance.  I think an army of these in a photonovel would be nice.

 :P

It's called a Boga, and yeah, it is Obi-Wan's ride.

(Sorry if that was a spoiler to anyone. :-\ )

Re: Episode III Beasts - Boga w/Obi-Wan

So, Toy Fair has come and there was only the Boga on the beast front, no sign of "offical" pics of Yoda w/Can-Cel (or whatever that bug is called).

SW has always had a proud tradition of beasties

SW - Dewback, Ronto, Bantha
ESB - Wampa, Taun-Taun
RotJ - Rancor
TPM - Opee, Kaduu, Eopie
AotC - Acklay, Reek, Nexu

I am glad to see that RotS is no exception with at least the Boga and Dragonfly to come...  :)

Yeah, I agree Jeff.  I've always enjoyed the Star Wars beasties, and thought they were cool as a kid as well.  Looks like we should at least add another 1 or 2 to the ranks with ROTS.  The Boga for sure (which looks pretty nice actually), and possibly that Can-Cell Dragonfly thingy :).  The beasts from past movies always made things more "Star Warsy" to me, especially the OT beasts.

Actually, TPM is the hands-down winner of beastie toys - don't forget:
Fambaa w/Shield Generator
Falumpaset w/Ammo Wagon
Jabba w/Two-headed Announcer

So that's six beasties for TPM!

I hope we see some other beast in EP3... something big like a Rancor would be so cool.
