Send your Wish List for 10[/i] 3 3/4" Figures to me or post them here, be it new figures, resculpts or even re-releases and I'll tally the votes.  After two to three weeks of list taking I'll publish the results and we will move on to the next movie.  Continuing on down the road I am inviting one and all to turn in your Wishlists for the middle movie of the Original Trilogy, The Empire Strikes Back.  Hoth, Bespin, Dagobah, Bounty Hunters and Wampas fill this fan favorite full of great background and main characters.  Feel free to send in your lists via e-mail: spearson@jedidefender.com or post them here.

If you need help coming up with names check out the Official Sites Databank:   Episode IV.  Also check out Red 6 for even more great charcters (and petition supporters) :P

Have fun and thanks for sending in your lists (remember to limit it to ten)!

Wow, ten for ESB is tough considering my love for droids and weird and wacky aliens.  My list is also based on the rumour that my #1 choice (Riekkan) is coming and we'll get R3-A2 in the Hoth 4 pack.

Anywho, here it goes:

1.  Major Bren Derlin, who knows everyone's name on Hoth
2.  Toryn Farr
3.  General Veers pre-Hoth invasion
4.  R-3PO with authentic "Thank the Maker" tatoo on his ass
5.  Ice Cream Maker Guy, just for you Scott ;)
6.  Cloud Car pilot but only if Hasbro releases something for him to fly (hint, hint Hasbro)
7.  Treva Horme, although I've never this alien in the movie this list would be mighty boring without her.
8.  Utris M'Toc, the Star Trek wannabe.  See #7 for comments
9.  non "Saturady Night Live" Lobot

Hmmm, looking at my list, I've only determined nine.  I know who I want, but since I'm too lazy to look up his name, I'll give you the actor's name.  Are you ready?  Why we don't have a figure of him yet, I have no idea.  I present you my #10 choice, the most obscure character played by a well known actor in the OT:

10.  Scott Bakula's Imperial.  That's right, the star of Quantum Leap and Necessary Roughness.  Its gold baby, I'm telling you!  Nobody would pass him up.  Get to work Hasbro.

Treva Horme for those who care can be spotted in ESB right before the most infamous charcter in the OT appears on Bespin.  As Lando rushes through the crowd after the evacuation call, a large alien is seen running the opposite way.

Thank you Asian Bootleggers and your OT DVD's!

Oh goodie, because this is a place that NEEDS resculpts!

The figure's I list are just what I want with their "dream" features, but either way I want the figure.  Hasbro may do SOME of the stuff listed.

1) Hoth Rebel Footsoldier (Fleet Trooper)...  White uniformed guys that we have a figure of.  Resculpt with 16 points of articulation (wrists, shoulders, biceps, elbows, knees, neck, waist, boot tops, hip/thighs).  Removeable helmet with 3 head variants (bearded, clean shaven brown hair, clean shaven blonde hair).  Functioning holster for RFT blaster as well as blaster rifle, backpack and macro binoculars.  I'd also give him a cloth scarf on his hat as well as removeable goggles.  :)

2) Imperial "Snow" Stormtrooper...  16 Points of articulation like above, functioning holster, maybe a removeable helmet with a generic impy head underneath?  Cloth skirt piece, and cloth face mask a must for poseability.  Comes with blaster rifle of course, and I'd throw in a lil explosive or grenade for them, just for fun.

3) Dagobah Luke Skywalker...  Uber-poseable, with at least 16 POA.  Give him his gear from the Saga X-Wing, and a WELL MADE cloth jacket that he can have on, but opened...  ALso a removeable belt/gun holster for when he puts it on to go in the cave...  Of course, his lightsabre as well.  One must, he MUST be able to stand on his hands, but still hold his weapons.

4) General Maximillian Veers...  Removeable hat, removeable body armor, removeable belt w/holster, removeable helmet with goggles, and blaster pistol.  16 points of articulation.  This guy will be the ULTIMATE Imperial officer figure.  He'll sell by the truckload just so people can make customs.  I guarantee no pegwarmer here!  Oh and give him a mini holo Vader to talk to. :)

5) Han Solo (Hoth Gear) ...  Give him a ton of articulation (16 points?) and a cloth hood that pulls down.  Removeable helmet, functioning holster, removeable goggles...  The new Hoth Han does not cut it in my book...  Nice sculpt, but bad action figure IMO.  I doubt my Hoth Han ever comes to fruition, but I'd like to see him some day by my own hand maybe.

6) Jeremy Bulloch Imperial Officer...  Just to have Bulloch as a figure, I'd love to have him as the blonde Impy on Bespin that hides behind Leia.  Removeable hat of course so we can make neat Boba Fett customs. :)

7) Lando Calrissian...  Cloth coat again, better poseability and more neutral pose.  Give him a stormie blaster and Bespin Gun or something...  Just give me a normal Bespin Lando that I can pose some.

8 ) Lobot...  For god's sake, do Lobot over...  Yeesh!  OOGLY figure, in desparate need of a resculpt.  

9) Hoth Rebel Technician...  Multiple points of articulation, and he comes with TWO hats (and a couple variant heads).  The first hat is the long brim "ballcap" type hat.  The second one is a soldiers cap...  2 figures in one I say!  Give him some tools too maybe?   They'll look great wranglin' your taun-taun, or fixing your X-Wing.

10) Yoda...  Poseable legs, cloth coat, belt, snake (orange and brown versions. :D ), gimer stick, cloth backpack that he fits into...  A great and needed figure, plus he will go VERY well with the aforementioned Dagobah Luke.

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 choices:

10.  Admiral Ozzel – “He is as clumsy as he is stupid”

9.  Captain Needa – “Apology accepted, Captain Needa” *urk*  :P

8.  Major Bren Derlin – Cheers denzien AND hoth good guy in one.

7.  Toryn Farr – We need more ladies in the SW universe and comm officer Farr is a good place to start!

6.  Cloud Car Pilot – maybe if they make the figure, they’ll have to finally make the darn vehicle!

5.  Zev Senesca with removable helmet – He rescued Han and Luke, and hey, Jek got a figure so it’s not impossible!

4.  Wes Janson with removable helmet – MORE rebel pilots please!  I’d love a good removable helmet, generic snowspeeder-pilot gear figure to use for snow-speeder pilot customs!

3.  “Generic Bespin Background character” – Hmmm... which one should I choose, so many running around the halls of Bespin.  If only there was one background character that stood out.  Maybe running with an appliance?  Hmmm... um... how about: Ice-Cream Maker Guy!  (great OCB, now you’ve got me wanting one too)  :D

2.  NEW Princess Leia in Bespin Gown – we need to replace that Leia-2pack version!

1.  NEW un-buff Dagobah Luke Skywalker w/cloth Yoda bag and crates.  It’d be nice if he came with a swamp base/stand that allows him to do hand-stands!

Yeah, I was wondering the same thing as Bespin_refugee when I saw your post Mikey...  No way Scott Bakula was in Empire.  I'm sure we'd have all heard about it (like with Cliff Claven)...

Or are you just totally goofin' with that pick?   :P

He was the officer who, after the Millenium Falcon grapple hooked to the Star Destroyer, said "There not on our scopes" or something to that affect.  I'm pretty sure that's the scene, but I haven't seen ESB is awhile, so I could be off a little.  He's sitting in the recessed commucations area and looks up to his commanding officer.

Scott, with your bootleg DVDs, would you care to take a look to confirm this for us? Thanks.

Well I found him.

Go to Scotts Red 6 link and look under Imperial Commanders.  His name is Commander Nement, complete with picture.

Although it doesn't say who played him, its obviously my main man Bakula.

Dang! I missed the last one.
Some good ideas people, some so good I will sign my name up for them too.

1) Ozzel
2) Veers
3) Treva Horme (never seen him before, but looks kinda cool)
4) Wiorkettle (as above)
5) Riekeen
6) Zev Senesca
7) Fried Solo with grilling dooberry.
8) Dagobah Luke
9) Dagobah Yoda
10) Delux Ugnaught (I came upon this idea when displaying my collection. The C-3P0 that came with Cloud City Chewbacca, looks cool with the ugnaught. So why not make a new ugnaught, pack him with a conveyor belt and droid parts then add an IG-72, done the same way as the C-3P0 was done then hey presto you have a nearly complete scene).
