1.  Major Bren Derlin
2.  General Veers
3.  Lobot resculpt
4.  R-3PO
5.  Admiral Ozzel
6.  Captain Needa
7.  General Rieekan
8.  Bespin gown Leia

Removed Rieekan, Ozzle and Lobot (the Swami has not been wrong yet)  Yoda and Luke are pretty strong '04 rumors as well

1.  Major Bren Derlin
2.  General Veers
3.  Lobot resculpt
4.  R-3PO
5.  Admiral Ozzel
6.  Captain Needa
7.  General Rieekan
8.  Bespin gown Leia
9.  Deluxe Ugnaught
10. Black Bespin Guard


Okay, so we have General Carlist Rieekan and R-3PO (according to the Japanese catalog shots ) coming now, I guess I will replace them with Dagobah Luke and now I can finally jump on the icecream maker guy bandwagon as my last choice..

Well, now there are 4 from my original list that are being made (Rieekan, R-3PO, Bespin Leia [assuming Swami is correct], and Ozzel).  So, I will go with:

1.  Major Bren Derlin
2.  General Veers in Imperial uniform w/ snap-on armor
3.  Lobot resculpt
4.  Captain Needa
5.  Toryn Farr
6.  Zev Senesca - Rogue 2
7.  Dagobah Luke resculpt w/accesseries
8.  Non-buff Snowspeeder Luke resculpt
9.  Black Bespin Guard (Sgt. Edian)
10. Yoda w/backpack, & other accessories resculpt

I'm assuming/hoping the Medical Frigate Luke rumor is true because I would like to see that as well (besides, I only have 2 Lukes on my list!!!)   The Jeremy Bullock Imp. officer and E-3PO were also hard to leave off, as well as ICMG.   Sorry about that, OCB.   Hopefully the Dagobah Luke & Yoda will be made as well and I can add that back in as well as a super articulated Snowtrooper (if I don't chose to add Jeremy Bullock Imp. officer and E-3PO into the list).

My ESB list...  Let's see how I did here!

  • General Rieekan - First and foremost!   8)

  • Bespin Cloud Car Pilot   8) - Presumably with the Twin Pod Cloud Car!   >:(   :-X

  • Lando (Smuggler's outfit) - I know, it's an easy custom, but I'm lazy and not very talented so just give it to me...

  • R-3PO (red protocol droid) - See Lando comment.   8)

  • Major Bren Derlin - Just gotta have Cliffy!

    And then the much needed resculpts:
  • Lobot - The Disco era ended long ago, my bald friend...   8)

  • Bespin Leia - Just a more official (and better) version on standard card, rather than the PLC SG one   8)

  • Hoth Rebel Soldier - Needs a more accurate Hoth battlefield update.  Midget.   :-\

  • Dagobah Luke - Toned down from his Aahnold-esque proportions!   8)  Throw in a SG jacket as well.

  • General Veers - Like everyone else has said: A standard Imperial version w/ snap on armor
Guess that'll do it.  Honorable mention to Toryn Farr, Admiral Ozzel  8), and of course ICMG!

Wow.  Not too bad a year for the ESB figures!  8 for 13 on the figures I mentioned.  Man, really not too much left from this movie now.  Guess I can add a Snowspeeder Pilot Wedge/Luke/Zev in there now, but that about covers it, I think.  Cool.  Now let's move back to ANH and do some damned Cantina aliens!   >:(

1. Cloud Car Pilot
2. Hoth Rebel Soldier (Echo Base troop garb) Both are no brainers that need to be updated from Vintage Figures
3. General Rieekan A troika of Rebel Generals is in order
4. Ice Cream Maker Guy 'nuff said
5. Death Star Trooper Resculpt Running to the Bathroom wasn't cool then.  I've boiled and popped some Imperial "Officers" and the old one, still not good enough
6. Hoth Rebel Officer (Major Derlin) Cliff Claven needs a Star Wars figure...again
7. General Veers With or without armor, the first one stinks
8. Admiral Ozzle  Great opportunity for a new tuniced officer that actually had some memorable lines
9. Hobbie or Zev or both ala the Running Change Imperial Officer, just throw in 4 or 5 helmets and boom, instant Rogue Squadron
10. Yoda/Luke Dagobah Resculpts  A 2 pack combo platter, throw in R2 and you have a great Screen Scene
Here's my latest List

The Empire Strikes Back
1. Hoth Rebel Soldier (Echo Base troop garb)
2. Ice Cream Maker Guy
3. Death Star Trooper Resculpt
4. General Veers
5. Hobbie or Zev
6. Torryn Farr
7. White Bespin Guard
8. Major Bren Derlin
9. Luke Medical Frigate
10. Leia Medical Frigate

No changes to mine, but ESB doesn't have a lot of really solid or super necessary choices left at this point...

I sort of agree, I'd like an Echo Base trooper, he's a Vintage Redo and same goes for Cliffy but I'm wondering if there are rights issues with him.  I would like the Bespin Frozen Dairy Chef though.  And if they want to do Main Character Variants...Luke and Leia Medical Frigate would be keen in my book

General Veers seems to be mucho requested and I'd buy one as Imperial Officers are always welcome

Snowspeeder Pilots, Torryn Farr,

Not sure if I can come up with 10 or not, although there are always some further background characters to explore.  Otherwise, not too much left from the main ones really...wouldn't mind seeing a few resculpts though, those POTF2 figs just don't hold up in some cases.

1. Zuckuss (resculpt) - missed the 1st version
2. 4-LOM (resculpt) - ditto #1
3. Luke Snowspeeder (resculpt)
4. General Veers
5. Luke/Leia Medical Frigate
6. Lando (smuggler's gear)
7. White Bespin Guard
8. Hoth Rebel Trooper
9. ICMG (for Scott) :)
10......

Not sure, a few choices.  I wouldn't mind seeing a fig like Torryn Farr or Major Bren Derlin, but like Scott said, it might be a likeness rights issue with the latter.  Some of the ones I wanted the most (resculpts) have been taken care of lately with Dagobah Luke, Yoda, R2, etc.  Although I didn't mind the Saga Hoth Han, I wouldn't mind seeing that figure redone...in a more neutral, articulated, vOTC style Han figure...but I guess we could say that for a lot of figures ;).  As I start putting these newer figs on display, it just seems like the vast majority of POTF2 figures pale in comparison...and there are a number of resculpts that I wouldn't mind.  Sure, some still look ok, but when you look at figures like vOTC Han, Stormtrooper, Chewie, etc....you just know they could do so much better.
