Review by Ken
3 Stars out of 4

I never even knew this thing was called an Opee until I actually saw   the frigging toy. Based on one of the three ferocious sea monsters that attacked the Bongo in Episode 1's classic underwater sequence, the Opee actually comes across looking like some freaky sea lobster that's in hybrid collision mode with a mutated goldfish. Although the movie only gave us fleeting images of its awesome presence, the cool thing about the toy version is that it allows us to examine the fine detail and design of this undersea lurker with greater intimacy.

Bulky and orange in colour, the Opee toy has a snapping jaws feature that can be activated by pressing a button on the creature's head. This allows you to open and close the creature's mouth; and you can actually insert half of the Qui-Gon figure inside to give the illusion of the Opee chewing his head out. I have to say that the Opee seems rather cartoonish with its mouth closed, but looks way menacing once you get its jaws open in attack mode

The exclusive Qui-Gon figure that you get together with the Opee features a first for Hasbro's Star Wars line- articulated ankles! This is to make it seem as though the figure is swimming. Aside from that, Qui-Gon also comes with a harpoon and a lightsaber handle that is glued onto his utility belt. A breathing apparatus (similar to the one provided by Jar Jar Binks in the movie's Naboo swimming scene ) is painted onto Qui-Gon's mouth. Also, Qui-Gon's plastic cloak can actually be detached- but this is going to take a little effort and patience.

Overall, the toy is extremely fun to play with- and has most of the intricate detailing that serious toy collectors love to get obsessed over. I just wish they could have made the Opee toy bigger; because it seemed so freaking huge in the movie. And why does such a vicious and lethal sea creature like this have a cutesy-sounding name like "Opee"?  Makes no frigging sense. In any event, there's still two more remaining sea monsters from the movie to watch out for, so I'm gonna quit my griping.
