Responding with pleasure to the demands of Star Wars fans, we are proud to bring you Jocasta Nu in her very first appearance as a 3.75" figure!
As Chief Librarian of the Jedi Archives, Jocasta Nu oversees a vast collection of information – and secrets – dating back thousands of years. A brilliant researcher and archivist, this Jedi Master has trained many Padawans during her long career. Her devotion to learning is seen by her Ansata-patterned robes, a style worn by many famous Jedi historians. In the archives, Jocasta is surrounded by bronzium busts of noteworthy Jedi Masters, among them Count Dooku, Yoda and Chon Actrion. Like the archives, these busts also hold the tantalizing secrets for those who search for them.
Take home a part of HISTORY with this exclusive Jocasta Nu figure!
Did it take an army or a miracle to finally bring Jocasta Nu to collectors? Perhaps it was a little bit of both. Always a top ranking Fans’ Choice candidate, Hasbro nearly scoffed for the last couple of years at the idea of making her as an action figure in their popular 3.75” line. In fact, the latest Fans’ Choice poll where the results were announced at Toy Fair 2012 saw Jocasta Nu hit the number two spot of the most desired figure yet to be made by Hasbro. But Hasbro officials still laughed at the idea. Perhaps they wanted to throw off their scent and create more desire for her than there already was. Because it wasn’t until 2012’s San Diego Comic Con that the official announcement was made: Jocasta Nu is coming! It was an almost unbelievable utterance, but also a very exciting one. However, even when miracles like this happen, there are always those that will feel indifferently about it. Warmly welcomed by most, Jocasta Nu made her official debut “in the flesh” at various conventions that summer. Interestingly she was planned as a Celebration VI exclusive, but things didn’t work out as intended and Jedi Temple Archives’ sponsor Brian’s Toys stepped up to the plate and became the official vendor of this awesome exclusive.
Jocasta Nu retails for a lavish $25. As a result, she will be out of the budgets for many collectors who typically like two of everything: one to open and one to keep sealed. But in order to make it the greatest value for the dollar, Jocasta Nu comes in a deluxe boxed-set and a healthy dose of accessories, many of which you probably didn’t expect Hasbro to include. But you probably want to know what’s in the box, don’t you? Well, there’s a lot of great stuff in here. Jocasta Nu comes with 12 points of articulation. Admittedly, she looks a little bit young for her age in action figure form, but we feel the resemblance is more than adequate for this character. Jocasta Nu comes with a swivel neck. We asked Hasbro about this at Celebration VI and they explained to us that the aesthetics were going to be compromised when working up some rough sketches while planning for the figure. Her outfit is an exact replica of the costume in the film and her overall countenance seems to be equally inspired from Attack Of The Clones as well as The Clone Wars television series. The coloring, details and sculpt are just simply excellent and we’re especially thankful that she’s finally here for all of us to enjoy in our collections.
