One thing we truly love about The Clone Wars television series is the opportunity it provides for developing characters and the interaction of new characters with previously established ones. If it weren’t for Season 1 of The Clone Wars, we may have never discovered Kit Fisto’s Padawan, Nahdar Vebb, a truly loveable character in the series. Nahdar Vebb was a male Mon Calamari who was a Jedi Knight during the Clone Wars. Although he was a Jedi general by the time we saw him in Filoni’s The Clone Wars, it is still a powerfully cool back story that he developed his Jedi skills with another one of our favorite Jedi Masters, Kit Fisto. Someone at Hasbro must love the Mon Calamari species because in recent years they have seen one release after another in the Star Wars line. This ultimately is welcomed by us, but we wonder what the obsession is. As a peaceful and freedom-fighting species, the Mon Calamari are instantly adored by the fans and their good nature makes them that much more enjoyable. So it makes sense why fans clamored for Hasbro to make Nahdar Vebb. Thankfully Hasbro listened carefully to us and developed a truly wonderful action figure interpretation of him as a special mail-away exclusive figure.
And Nahdar Vebb’s demand even exceeded Hasbro’s expectations as they ran out of initial shipments of him. Thankfully they decided to meet demand and reordered another set of them so they could fulfill all requests. This speaks volumes to the demand of The Clone Wars line. Even Hasbro can’t project just how well mail-away figures will do for this best-selling line. So although the shipments that went out in April quickly disappeared, Hasbro was able to get the second batch out in November just in time for the holidays. Thank goodness they did because this is a figure that everyone should own. Nahdar Vebb really measures up as one of the better action figures in the line so far! Well, we’re impressed with him at least. We hope you’ll be too. Hasbro has designed him so well we really wish he had a fair chance at retail. We bet Hasbro could have moved a ton of units of him had he been included in the basic figure line. From an excellent likeness to a well designed frame, Nahdar Vebb is remarkably one beautiful action figure in the entire The Clone Wars line. To be honest, we’re quite exhausted of all the clones. So it’s refreshing to get a unique Jedi like Nahdar Vebb. But it’s important to note that he’s also very well made.
