Ten years after the fight to save Naboo from invasion, the galaxy is on the brink of civil war. Under the leadership of a renegade Jedi, thousands of solar systems threaten to secede from the Galactic Republic. A courageous Jedi Knight, his impulsive and headstrong apprentice, and a queen-turned-senator are drawn into the heart of the conflict... and the beginning of war.
Taun We is aide to Lama Su, the Prime Minister of Kamino. Willowy and refined, Taun We is a sylph-like creature with large eyes and a gentle voice. She greets Obi-Wan Kenobi when he arrives at the cloning facilities of Tipoca City, and she later introduces him to the mysterious clone host Jango Fett.
It was a sole tiny saber dart was the beginning breadcrumb that led Obi-Wan Kenobi down the trail to a clone facility in Tipoca City on Kamino. After some debate on whether the system even existed, Obi-Wan Kenobi took R4-P17 and his Jedi starfighter for a ride to where the stars were clustering on faith and discovered a very perplexing human-making factory. The whole sequence on Kamino was hauntingly mysterious. While the Kaminoans were forthright and honest, Obi-Wan Kenobi was so confused by the details of it and was having great difficulty putting all of the pieces together. Why would a Jedi organize the production of clones? And why would a specific bounty hunter be the template for them all? Unable to see the true scheme unfolding, Obi-Wan Kenobi reported back to the Jedi High Council his findings on Kamino. Unsatisfied, The Jedi High Council instructed Obi-Wan to bring Jango Fett before them so they could investigate these events further. We all know how well that turned out, didn’t we? Before the chaos, one character introduced us to the Kaminoan species. The calming Taun We was out first glimpse at these creatures. And Hasbro made her a priority in the Star Wars “Saga” line.
Taun We (Kamino Cloner) is a very graceful creature. Her thin and delicate frame coupled with her soothing voice made her probably as eerie as she was likeable. She showed kindness and respect towards Obi-Wan Kenobi, and we have to credit Hasbro for brilliantly adding these traits into a fine sculpt of her. Tall and perhaps the axiom of what we might epitomize when we think or hear the word alien, Taun We (Kamino Cloner) isn’t nearly as articulated as you might hope, but as a display piece she is as perfect as you can get, except for one major issue. She is almost unable to stand upright without assistance (and actually good photo trickery in our gallery). The back of her “dress” is longer than where he legs stop thus creating and unbalanced appearance. We find this particularly frustrating because our opinion is that the very least an action figure should be able to accomplish is standing upright without the aid of a stand. It seems that this desire is often not met. If you can finagle this action figure in the right way, you can make her appear she is standing with a good posture, but you will probably lose your patience before you can make it work. It involves bending the dress and twisting her body. It’s annoying for sure.
