The Force Awakens / Re: Retail Prices/Sales/Discounts

I'd like the EE one at that price.

I really like Jeff's list.  I'd definitely like a retail release of Han in Carbonite, too.

Another thing with EU-type of winners: people will happy someone wins but then complain about the headache of trying to find the figure in store or online for a reasonable price because the scalpers eat them right up.  I don't really understand the EU hype, but that's me, and I'm happier for it since I haven't had my universe destroyed by the Disney purchase.  But I'm also happy for those that get their figures too.

Those are interesting numbers, Jeff.  With the new trilogy, I bought more 6" figures than I had thought I would...probably all but 5.  But only 1 OT & PT figure were released in the line (not including the two multi-packs) and the two Rebels figures (so far).  I guess 1 prequel figure makes sense since Disney wanted to distance itself from that trilogy... But there are some cool characters to come from those movies.

It also makes sense being a movie year that more of the focus is on that movie, but I really hope that Hasbro focuses on central figures in the movie than say lesser ones like Zuvio, Asty, or Guavian until the movie is out for a while to gauge their popularity accurately.  Maybe get some of the heroes and villains out and mix from the OT, PT and Rebels or EU in the next couple waves since the characters of the new movie aren't yet established? 

I see their viewpoint, too, but on the other hand, it's a fan poll so people can choose who they want, so people should be happy fans listed their choice and up-voted the choices others put down.  One might not agree with people's candidates but at least Hasbro has these polls.  I think Star Wars fans are some of the biggest complainers out there.

I just wonder if Hasbro would do Darth Talon if there were issues with Slave Leia's outfit and the resulting outcry from some in the public.

That's a nice list of figures I would buy.  Already one site's members are complaining about results, such as why (waste a) vote for obvious candidates.  Vote for X Obscure/EU character.

Apparently it was Simon Pegg's idea and intended as a homage to Takei, but when Takei found out LAST YEAR, he expressed his displeasure with Sulu being gay and did his best to convince Cho to go another route.

Considering all this and that Simon was one of the writers, why didn't he volunteer his character, Scotty, to be gay?  I mean, instead of disagreeing with George on the reasonings, he could have easily change which characters was gay, instead of disregarding George's wish.

My top 10 list

1. Padme Amidala (Meadow Picnic)
2. Sim Aloo (Imperial Dignitary)
3. Sate Pestage (Imperial Dignitary)
4. Ars Dangor (Imperial Dignitary)
5. Princess Leia (Ultimate Sculpt Bespin Capture)
6. Uncle Owen
7. Modal Nodes Biths (with instrument pack-ins)
8. Tonnika Sisters
9. Aunt Beru (resculpt)
10. Princess Leia (SA) (Tantive IV)

9. AT-AT Driver

Psst.  This one's confirmed  ;)

I've got a spare Han if anyone's still looking.

I wonder if this is the speeder that was used in getting Poe off of Jakku (per novelization).  They filmed the scene and never used it?

I have Threepio on my list.  ;)  I just don't want a TFA version

I'd love to see a Droideka in 6" scale (didn't make my cut in top 10 though) if Hasbro could tool the figure to collapse into roller mode.

I also agree with Darby about Padme.  The Theed Invasion gown is iconic and the one I would choose for 6" scale, but for some reason her Geonosis Arena Battle outfit is a favorite (I find it the most boring of her outfits)

I'd also love for Hasbro to get back to focusing on "iconic" characters in the saga.  I think a big mistake they did for TFA was to release characters other than the main and secondaries.  There were (IMO) only four (Asty, Guavian, Zuvio, and Resistance fighter), but they hung around and should have been Luke, Maz, and Resistance Rey instead.  Save the background characters for the 3.75" line.

01. Lando Calrissian (Bespin)
02. Dengar
03. Zuckuss
04. 4-LOM
05. Lando Calrissian (Skiff guard)
06. Emperors Royal Guard
07. C-3PO
08. Han Solo in Carbonite
09. Anakin Skywalker (Attack of the Clones)
10. Count Dooku

Third tier characters like Goss Toowers, PZ-4CO, Zuvio, etc seem like they might get a little less love from Hasbro this time around.

I just hope that Hasbro doesn't take this as, "Why should we release the Tonnika Sisters or Sim Aloo.  Background characters don't sell."  I believe fans would prefer those characters from the OT and PT than the NT.
