Doubtful it will do particularly well as a deluxe figure around the $29.99 price point.  Once it's on clearance, I'm sure it'll sell.

Apart from completists, I don't see Jar Jar doing well. He might sell out at the beginning but as time goes on he might peg warm. I also can't for the life of me think what could make him a deluxe figure, maybe a bunch of accessories or a display piece.

Extra heads.  One "stupid" facial expression, one "really stupid" facial expression, and a third "incredibly stupid" facial expression. And maybe several pairs of hands that make obscene gestures.

theyll probaly pair him with a kaadu to ride, which is the only way i can see a jar jar figure selling at all

$29.99 seems too cheap for Jar Jar and a kaadu. They're kinda large.

idk, hasbro made omega ranger and his bike for $30, should be similiar size.

That bike is about half the size of a kaadu.  Jar Jar and a Kaadu would be the equivalent of Han Solo and a Tauntaun, which sold for $40 five years ago.  No way this is happening.

Thinner, but about the same height.  They won't even sell a two-pack with Luke and Yoda for less than $39.99  At $29.99, Jar Jar will not come with an animal to ride that is larger than he is. I guarantee it.  Well, not before it hits clearance.

cause that same yoda is 19.99 when its single packed. look at all of hasbros 39.99 figure and vehicle/creature sets though, kaadu is smaller than all of them. what else can possibly make a jar jar figure 29.99? 

maybe hes coming with one of the water cannons the gungans used? i dont remember him shooting one though but its been a long time since i saw phantom menace.

Yoda is like a 1/6th of the size of a Kaadu, is what I'm saying.  And a Kaadu is larger than a regular figure, quite significantly, and they don't sell two packs for less than $40.  If Jar Jar is a "Deluxe" figure at $29.99 he'll have extra heads if there's anything extra at all to justify that price.  There might not be.

idk, grievous was the last deluxe for 29.99 right? no way jar jar by himself equals that release. even with 5 heads.

Well there's no way Jar Jar comes packed with a Kaadu, which is larger than he is, for less than the price of two regular figures.  Never understimate the power of capitalism and inflation.  Anyway, I have a feeling we'll be seeing this SOB at Hasbro Pulse Con in a couple weeks.  And I've got this thread bookmarked, so I'll check in later.

I'm thinking maybe he'll come with the market stand and the animal he tried to eat and an alternate head with the tongue sticking out.

And he comes with a staff, energy shield, and one of those "booma" things.  And that's it.
