I would actually go for a ROTS Jar Jar.  Yeah the character does suck... but I could use one I suppose.  Just for diorama filler.

Bumping this thread... look at my original list, I pulled for ICMG.   ;)

 :P

Man, talk about the chickens coming home to roost...

 :P

I'm hoping you're not meaning that in a bad way, and it seems like several people are using my  :P signature lately to mock me.

I just wanted to show that just because there was some bad things said in the Fan's Choice threads, and even though ICMG didn't get my vote, it's still a figure I'd buy.  Background/boring characters deserve to be made too.

 :P

Just thought of another some....any of the podracer pilots besides Anakin & Sebulba would be boring,but would make good diorama fillers for Mos Eisley or Mos Espa.

A couple more podracer guys would be fine by me, I think we are getting at least one of them this year (or maybe I read something wrong somewhere).

How about the old lady on Mos Espa where Anakin gets fruit from?  Extremely boring character!

I think was said to be a 2-pack but Hasbro could change the idea,I also agree the old lady (I think she's named Jira ???) would be EXTREMELY boring.

-Hermi Odle...  Let's face it, a big turd eating apples is boring but I want one.

-Garrouf Lafoe...  The human snitch in the Cantina.  I want this figure so badly because it's dull, but the Cantina gets no human love.  I want this and Yerka Mig NOW.

-Yerka Mig...  See above.  Dull Cantina human, I love it.

-ICMG...  I want it, I'd gladly buy it.  Bespin gets no love.

-Hoth Rebel Technician...  Dull, but an army builder nonetheless.  You don't see many US Army Engineer figures made eihter but they're there, so I want my Hoth Rebel Technician.

-Yavin/Home One Rebel Technician...  Same guy, in his non-cold gear with his standard Rebel helmet (no neck guard).  I'd buy this and the Hoth techie in droves.

-Rebel Petty Officer...  Brownish-green uniform with ballcap (w/Rebel diamond logo on it)...  If you can tell me who the hell these guys are or where they are you get a net cookie.  They're in two films too.  Again, another army builder I'd buy in droves, and to me no different than buying Ozzel, Jerjerrod, Piett, or Veers really.

-Cantina Dude...  Bossk with a helmet basically.  Boring and I want one.

-Frozec...  Another human thug from someplace obscure.  I'd buy him, and the guy that shoots Luke's hand, and the guy in the Russian Winter hat that mounts a deck gun to Jabba's barge to fire at the skiff...  I love human weirdoes in weird bars and hangouts.  It's why I go out on weekends, so why not want action figures of these maroons?

-Beru, Owen, & Cleig Lars...  Any version from any film of these 3 figures is welcomed to me.  ALl boring, all worthy.

-Imperial Techs...  Grey jumpsuited guys with black and dark grey hats.  I'd be happy with a repaint of the POTJ sculpt of the Impy Officer even, but it'd be nice if it had new legs or used a more poseable set.

-Biggs Academy Uniform...  Boring, but tons of people want that figure.  I'm sorta shocked it didn't make the Fan's Choice honestly.

Actually,  I'd like to see the tall guy that was hanging out with human Jabba in the cut scenes.  He had a tall pointy hat and a long coat.

Thanks speedermike, and let me say that I'd add any of the Jabba ANH:SE Goons too...

The pointy hat guy is definitely one, but my second from that scene is the big guy with the bushy beard.  If he isn't a space pirate I don't know what is.  The dude looks like a surly space blackbeard.  I love those background guys.

I also would love the human Jabba...  I can fit him in scenes easily and he's just so cool.

As far as that goes, cut scenes that is, how about:

-Biggs Academy...  I already listed him but he's boring and if Lando won't sell neither would this figure. :)  I still want a Biggs in Academy duds.

-Camie...  Boring, human, and female...  A triple threat.

-Fixer...  Boring Tatooine schmuck...  Didn't even make the film.  Very boring, but I want one.
