- "They have Master Yoda's species listed as Lannik, and his midi-chlorian count at 4 million. That's just ridiculous!"
- ―Coleman Trebor
Though Spotts' marketing manager Wil Jhonems claimed that the tradechips were intended to hold famous Jedi up as role models for young children, they were controversial at the time for several reasons. Firstly, such Jedi as Master Coleman Trebor felt that merchandising the Jedi was disrespectful towards the Force. Secondly, since the Jedi refused to cooperate with the production of this unlicensed merchandising by granting access to the Jedi Archives, many of the statistics were inaccurate. Yoda, for example, was identified as a Lannik rather than his true species, and given an inaccurate midi-chlorian count of four million. Trebor also pointed out that if the information had been accurate, the Jedi's enemies would have been able to use the information against them.
Though the Jedi tried to halt production of the tradechips, Spotts intended to release a second set (with updated information) in the near future.
