Yet another Background character from Star Wars. Although he does get more screen time then most, and a lot more in the various cartoons. Sadly like most of the Jedi Kit met an untimly end in Revenge of the Sith. So far I have three different versions of Kit Sitting on my desk. The Mini Galactic Hero version, One of the Action figures and The Kit Fisto bust.
I know I could probably get in trouble for saying this, But I really liked the Howard the Duck movie. Which makes me one of maybe ten people who admit that… altough in secret I think that the number is much higher.
I was also a big fan of the Steve Gerber comic as well. Howard was just plain cool, and well come on… He is a DUCK. So I thought it was really cool that they where releasing him as a figure in the Marvel Legends line. The problem was that he was going to be a pack in with the Silver Surfer and I just couldnt bring myself to pay that much for another Silver Surfer figure at Marvel Legends prices.
A while later a friend, Bills, who had bought one was getting ready to get rid of some stuff at a con and Howard was one of the items. So he was nice enough to let Howard come and live on my desk…
I don’t know what it says about me that most of my favorite characters from the Star Wars movies are minor background characters (and that is when they aren’t just background!).
Commander Cody is a prime example. Although he does have more lines then a lot of the characters I am so fond of Cody really does not have much screen time. I found the clones in general to be rather lacking in appearance and a little boring when they first showed up but when I saw some of the commanders and specialty troops I was a little more happy.
Of all the designs though Cody fast became my favorite for the style of his helmet and the use of Orange in his armor. Cody is one of the few toys who makes multiple appearances upon my desk.
