Managed to score an aged Theoden and Balrog battle Gandalf today. This line keeps getting better! Now I just need to find the Battle Cry Uruk Hai.

Well, I like your ideas. I would add in a new Sio Bibble to the EPI basic figure mix along with resculpts of the Naboo Guards.
For the VOTC, I don't think a Battle Droid is a good idea. $10 is just too much for this army-builder. Not that your ideas are bad, but here's my VPTC list -
Qui Gon Jinn
Obi Wan Kenobi
Padme Amidala (Arena)
I'm gonna wait to say anything about these. I figure they'll most likely be shown at Comic Con and THEN I'll have something to say.
And Nick covers a lot of toy shows and stuff so we'll wait to see what he's got to say about these.
As much as I like the idea of Darth Sidious with the Senate Pods, it seems as though it would be a bit too big for the Deluxe line. If it was made to get in at the $10 price point that the deluxe line sells for, the scale (Word Edited) would start screaming bloody murder, and I think many would find it to be inadequate.
Rather, I think a Senate playset akin to the EPISODE II arena playset (size wise) might fit the bill better. Have a wall of several senate pods with an action feature where the Senate pods fly out of the wall. This could have a wide appeal for both play features AND to collectors who like to display.
Nick, using the term I edited out as an emphasis about a group of people who prefer to-scale items (myself, MisterPL, and others included in that group) is not acceptable to me. Next time please be more conscious of what you're actually saying, whether in jest or not, as that phrase isn't one most like having applied to themselves no matter what context it was intended. Thanks. JJ
