Every now and then Hasbro surprises collectors by releasing a figure where not even fans know exactly where in the movie it appeared. Tarardos Gon is one of those figures. The Jedi appeared in the Battle Of Geonosis, and can be seen right after Count Dooku gives the order to cease fire and all Jedi are rounded up in the middle of the arena. The figure has 14 joints, which gives you plenty of positions to put it in, and is therefore perfect for any battle diorama. The lightsaber fits nicely into either of Tarados Gon's hands. The soft goods skirt can't be removed, but makes for a nice detail. Hasbro didn't include a Jedi robe (this should be must for all Jedi figures, even if the figure wasn't seen wearing one!). Tarados Gon stands securely by itself without the need of stand. The face is nicely detailed and and with the teeth showing, it makes this a great figure to pose in a battle diorama. All in all, it's a cool figure of a character that has not been done before, and while maybe not the most exciting figure, it still can easily be recommended and makes a great addition to your Jedi forces!
Tarados is one of the two hundred Jedi who arrive on Geonosis to stop the execution of Obi-Wan, Anakin and Padmé. The Klatooinian Jedi storms into the arena with his lightsaber ablaze to fight the Geonosian warriors and battle droid army.
