Star WarsReleased simultaneously with waves one and two, the third wave of Episode I figures delved into relatively minor characters. Arguably, of the third wave’s characters, Boss Nass got the most screen time in the movie, which isn’t really saying a whole lot. Mace Windu was also highly visible, but sometimes I feel this was due to the character’s prominence in the two trailers that promoted the movie months before its release.

To differentiate it from the “sneak preview” Mace Windu figure which was made available in 1998, this version of the Jedi Master included a removable cloak and an arm with an extra joint for a little more lightsaber flexibility. Four-armed Ody Mandrell, a very briefly seen Pod Race contestant, was such a small (and, quite honestly, flimsy) figure that Hasbro included a ubiquitous Pit Droid to justify that figure’s price tag.
