To Hasbro:

I've seen that you undertook the big task of Ephant Mon(which looks fantastic btw) But now i'm starting this thread to show that collectors and fans would love for you to do a Hermi Odle figure. He has got to be one of the coolest looking aliens around and would make a great addition to the saga line. Also I'm putting this here to establish that we want a Yoxgit figure( He was a Ugnaught in Jabba's Palace that worked for Hermi Odle and was a bit bigger than those Ugnaughts seen on the cloud city. He donned a Red Jumpsuit and is very cool looking) He also would be great addition to either come with Hermi or have his own figure.
PLEASE POST PICTURES OF HERMI ODLE AND YOXGIT HERE so people can see what they both look like. PICS and CCG cards all that. Please post your support here if you want these figures made and if you want them separate or in a cool 2 pack. Because I've wanted them since the first time I saw ROTJ in 1988. Thanks for your support. Also post if you want Hermi to have very nice cloth outfit or molded like the new Ephant figure. I myself would like molded vinyl. Hermi should Come with a blaster that actually can fit into his hand and may be holstered by his side. Also he should include a cane. And maybe even clear plastic removable drool that attaches to his mouth. Or maybe a mouth that is jointed so his tongue doesn't always hang out(would be great if done right) Let the FANS voice their opinions on what should be done and included. I want these figures badly

PS : No gimmicks on the figures. NEUTRAL POSES with great sculpts and lot of articulation key words being ACTION and FIGURE not statue. have articulation in the neck, waste, wrists, elbows, hips, Knees, shoulders, and biceps if you can squeeze it all it. And a Holster or clip so the weapon/blaster may fit in on both figures

Yes, I am all for a Hermi Odle figure! I think he should have vinyl robes just so he can match the way Ephant Mon was sculpted.

I think that Yoxgit would be best as a separate figure, unless Hasbro wants to do a Cinema Scene type thing with Hermi, Yoxgit and another Jabba's palace alien. Although their Cinema Scenes were never the best quality (probably why they weren't big sellers) so maybe having two separatly packaged figures is the way to go.

Yes seperately packed figures all the way to keep the quality at a reasonable level.

Hermi is a must along with Yarna D'al gargan. The larger characters offer so much more value for money I feel.

I'd buy just about any of the characters from Jabba's court, especially Hermi Odle. And I'd like to throw Sgt Doallyan's name into the mix. I love the way Chewbacca tossed him against the wall and his story in Tales From Jabba's Palace was pretty good.

Add me to this list, Jabba's palace is still my favorite scene from the saga. I'd love a Hermi, as well as a Gargan and most DEFINITELY a J'Quille (aka Tooth Face). I've wanted this guy made since I was 6! If you can make Djas Puhr Hasbro, give us these guys!!!

I would like one. I also feel that Yarna Da'l Gargan needs a figure done. Please Hasbro, make this figures.

Alright, if we are all talking about Jabba's crew, could someone please tell me what the hell that 'thing' hanging from the ceiling is?:confused:

If it is the thing hangs from the ceiling that tries to lick C-3PO, his name is Wol Cabasshite. I found this on theforce.net encyclopedia:

this race of immobile slugs evolved from a parasitical race. They have short, round bodies with long tongues used to snare their prey. They have developed an astonishing level of intelligence over their history, a fact which is often overlooked because of their appearance.

Ahh, Hermi....The face only a mother or serious Star Wars collector could love.

So if Hasbro made him, do you think they would make some clear force lightning, hook it to his mouth, and call it "drool?"

BillyJack, I tried this with Yarna D'al gargan and only a handful of people posted. Truth is that even though there may not be many responses to a thread like this most people would buy a hermi figure anyway. For a start it's a star wars character, secondly it would be a star wars figure, thirdly it would be a large star wars figure, fourthly jabba's palace is one of the most popular scenes in the saga and has a huge fanbase of people wanting to obtain all the characters for that scene. Fifth, It's almost an inevitable fact that at some point hasbro will make him as they run out of characters they haven't already made. He has an interesting backstory in the EU and the only real reason for never making him would be if there was a rights issue concerning his likeness being used. but as he isn't a living person and was designed by LFL staff for LFL use, there shouldn't be an issue with it. here's his SW.com databank entry...

"It would be a difficult task to determine who was the most gruesome of Jabba the Hutt's henchmen, though Hermi Odle was definitely a contender. He was a large, upright tuberous being with greasy gray skin, and a puffy face with drooling lips and drooping eyes.
Hermi Odle worked as a weapons specialist, helping craft the defenses of Jabba's palace. He spent most of his life on Tatooine after his ship was shot out of orbit by an Imperial patrol. He impressed Jabba with his weapons-crafting skills.

Odle had one major nemesis in the palace: Pote Snitkin, a Skrilling gun-runner and skiff pilot. The competition escalated as Snitkin sabotaged one of Odle's weapons, resulting in the death of a prized pet of Jabba's. During the confusion of battle over the Pit of Carkoon, Odle fired a stun weapon from the sail barge, knocking Snitkin unconscious. Snitkin was unable to move away from the exploding sail barge, and thus perished.

The Baragwin did escape the combat zone, eventually making it back to Mos Eisley. There he stole a starcraft of Jabba's, and left the desert planet. His current whereabouts are unknown

Hermi Odle was a full-body creature suit worn by a puppeteer on set. Like several aliens crafted by the Return of the Jedi Creature Shop, Odle's name appears to be a play on words, a phonetic respelling of "Hear Me Yodel." "

If he's a weapons expert then hasbro could get really creative and give him a personal armory of cool guns and bazookas and stuff. make him a deluxe figure with tons of accessories. I'd definately go for that. :)

I don't know about a whole lot of weapons, because one hand is already going to be occupied with a cane to keep this topheavy design from taking a permanant nap on your desk.

Maybe Hasbro could include with him around eight blaster handles and barrels, so that you can piece together a weapon. I know, it's a cheap attempt at weapon-crafting, but it's not like we're working with movie material here. :)

Yeah, he's supposed to be a weapons expert so why not have a selection of peg together weapon pieces so the big ol' slime ball can make his own arsenal. maybe some explosive devices too. Kinda like the ones Han Endor raid comes with but bigger. Perhaps the gun from the sail barge that fits onto the handrail, vibro pikes and knives and axes. perhaps a cloth backpack to put some of this stuff into or a big crate like the one that came with C-3PO protocol droid.

Lots of bits and pieces basically. Even re-use some of the weapons from POTF2 skiff guards if you have to. Just make him please. :)
