Jesse, it looks like your wish for Academy Biggs will finally happen... I'm really looking forward to that.

With Rep Been now confirmed, I am thinking my next TPM boring character I'd like to see made is this stupid thing.

Here's for the Padawan 2-pack. Remember the slice and diced Geonosian with the seperatable bodies (I just cleaved you in two style)? I want my Padawans like that8)

Yes, I do remember, and it was actually 3 parts, which is better, but the actual figure falls apart. I am looking for prospective victims. I wouldn't really care if they were pre poed statues cowering behind the council chairs. Just paint them neatly.

Boring?  I'd take a resculpted Yakface in a second, as well as some jumpsuited Yavin techs, and the midget in the Cantina with the bandanna around his neck :P

I still want a drunk jaway as a pack-in accessory with one of the new Cantina characters...  A solid "lounging" Jawa like outside the Cantina entrance.  :)  I'd buy 3 Ellis Helrot figures just to get 3 sloshed jawas.

Y'know this goes back to my "What makes a good figure?" thread.  In truth, I find no figures boring.  Redundant, yes (clones, clones, clones) but I want Rep Been as much as a SA Snowtrooper.  They're equal in my noggin.

I agree 100%.   When I read posts about boring figures... sometimes it just makes me wonder.   Actually, I'm quite tired of seeing clones (and I know I'm in the minority here), but I love those background characters that round out a scene that makes a diorama look empty or like it's missing something without them.

OT Uncle Owen.  That CS version sucked hard.  Pack him with one of the small unmade Sandcrawler droids.
   I think the CS Owen was as bad as the missile firing R5.  We had to wait long enough for the resculpt of R5 and now it's time for Owen... actually time for the OT and PT Owen and the rest of the PT Lars clan.

As far as the rest of the boring figures, I don't have time to think of all the "boring" figures we need made or even resculpted.  But, I'll be glad to put this on the back burner to think about and post later.

Obi-Dad, well said.
But for the sake of this thread here are my top 5 boring snoozers I wish to see made:

1. ICMG
2. Chinese Guard from Jabbas palace
3. Black Jabba palace guard from Jabbas palace wearing Lando's skiff armor
4. Big headed fish thing that bought Luke's landspeeder in Mos Eisly
5. The Hoth trooper who says "2 fighters against a Star Destroyer" to Princess Leai before the Battle of Hoth. Give him a sound chip for the ultimate useless background fodder ever made!

They would be loved.............in my collection at least.
