This nameless Rodian Jedi was released in a Target exclusive 2-pack in Fall 2010 together with a generic red Battle Droid. The set was part of the Geonosis Arena Showdown series, which started in 2009 during The Legacy Collection, and by Fall of 2010 consisted of twelve 2-packs totaling 24 figures. At this point we are unsure if the character was seen in Attack Of The Clones, but we play along with Hasbro and add the figure to our list of AOTC figures.
The Rodian is super articulated, featuring a ball-jointed neck, ball-jointed shoulders, ball-jointed elbows, ball-jointed knees and ball-jointed ankles. The wrists, the waist and both leg joints are swivel joints. The figures stands very well on its own and the stiff joints will keep it in even more dynamic poses. The only weapon included with the Rodian Jedi was a green lightsaber with a non-removable blade. The saber fits very well into both of the figure's hands. Unfortunately, there was no jedi robe included.
The paint job on the Rodian Jedi looks nice, especially the head is painted very well with lighter and darker shades. The light brown color on the jedi tunic looks nice as well. The figure itself is very well done, and even though it has 14 joints, they are basically not noticeable. All in all, this Rodian Jedi is a very cool looking figure, and will make a nice background Jedi in a Geonosian inspired display.
The Jedi Knights rush to Geonosis to rescue Obi-Wan - Anakin and Padme from execution. The Jedi brandish their lightsabers against the Geonosian warriors and the massive army of battle droids - super battle droids and droidekas. All hope seems lost that any Jedi will survive this battle - then Yoda arrives with an army of clone troopers. Although many Jedi are lost that day - others survive this climatic battle that ushers in the Clone Wars.
