I'm always perplexed with Hasbro produces such a great figure and then makes it limited.

Then tells us how new tooling costs limits what they can do.

I consider the remakes of main characters inevitable, so I rarely vote for them. I'd want unmade background characters over redos of most minor characters, though I'd get Ree Yees and Yak Face redos if they made them. I haven't gotten any modern Imperial Dignitaries, so while I see the desire to make Slim Aloo, I doubt I'd go out my way to get him.

Dash Rendar is sooo 90's. I wouldn't say I'd pass on a new one, if they bring back comic packs and stick him with his droid or whoever.

What Has Happened To Teebo In The Toys R Us Ewok Pack?

No new Teebo head sculpt? Logray repaint?!

Touching on some of these others....

-Chewbacca - I agree, the VOTC & Early Bird versions knocked it out of the park with Chewie.  If we're going to get scene specific with our favorite Wookiee, there are three jailbird versions left that I can think of:  Death Star prisoner Chewbacca, Cloud City Chewie with manacles & C-3PO, and a Jabba's palace prisoner Chewie.

They've gotten Boushh's bounty Chewbacca wrong twice now. In ROTJ, the collar is quite visible, not buried under fur like the toy versions.

The only thing I know is that they've been available from that same seller for well over a year now. There's red striped ones, too. Did those see retail release? I remember hearing talk of bootleg troopers (as opposed to factory extras or whatever), but the seller's other stuff looks like actual production items.

I've never bought anything from that seller.

No. Those people will have all quit the hobby they claim they are going to.  It was all about retro packaging!

Maybe, to all that.

Funny thing, the kid had cardboard vehicles he made, too.

Also those early Clone Wars clones (1st head sculpt) with green stripes that IIRC, were only found on eBay. Star Wars Clone Wars Grey Clone Trooper Green

Could be overseas...he sure sounded American.

Dropship...keep forgetting they made it.

I watched some stop motion video on youtube some kid made recently, there was the dropship! I've never seen one, how'd this kid get it?

Why not the soft goods deluxe Plo Koon.

Anyway, nice to see something new for CW. (I'll pass on unless it hits clearance, the reduced articulation was a deal breaker for me and the CW line.)

They could do Gunner Luke in MOVIE HEROES, so he can include an oversized spring action weapon that vaguely resembles a quad gun cannon...or reuse the Clone Trooper one that's backpack mounted.

Another good one is Swamp Squirt R2-D2 from Dagobah. Real water squirting action. Great ideas. By "great", I mean I shouldn't post them.

Han: Now that vintage is on hold (because we'd want this on a vintage card), a Stormtrooper disguise Han Solo...ball jointed hips.

Luke- Dagobah with his shirt open, scene where Yoda raises the X-Wing. Accurate short stormtrooper disguise version? Post bacta recovery luke in orange jump/flight suit? They could include the flight helmet and vest as removable accessories.

Vader: ROTS redo with accurate shoulder armor. That is, the shoulders that aren't seperate pieces, this would limit poses, but it's all about accuracy, right?  :P  Even better if you pressed his chest and he screamed "NOOOOOOOO!"

Anakin: Realistic season 3 Clone Wars...isn't that just ROTS with a different head? Well, yes.

Palpatine: Declaration of the Empire

Kenobi: Naboo underwater rebreather...because we didn't get enough EP1 Obi-Wan!  Or Ghost Obi-Wan.

Chewbacca: Wind blown Hoth, scene specific. How about Life Day Robe.

C-3P0: AOTC...arena one with maybe better deco?

Lando: Imperial Guard disguise from SOTE? Or Ewok Celebration...stick him in a 5 pack...Victory on Endor set....with dancing Ackbar? Squeeze his legs together and he busts a move?

R2-D2: Sensor scope...make it accurate!

I would probably buy very few of these.

I thought that was debris.

There's still no shot of Snowtroopers and Hoth Rebel troopers together, though.

I have to point out there was no TIE pilot seen in ESB.

Tortured to pieces 2-1B from Jabba's dungeon?

Burning Jawa Corpse?

Screaming falling Emperor with transpart stand so you can have him in falling pose?

Got a 25 cent yard sale landspeeder. Missing the windshield. They are always missing that. Sometimes the rear middle jet engine, but always that windshield.

Hurry, there's more Amazon preorders available. I bite the bullet and got two Royal Guards, figuring they'd be the hardest to get on the aftermarket down the road. I talked myself out of the Republic Trooper for now...seeing as he's from whole time era that I have one figure from that I haven't even opened..
