A New Hope

Walrus Man
Jawa- Soft Goods Cloak

The Empire Strikes Back

Snowtrooper- Soft Goods Skirt
Luke Skywalker- Bespin Fatigues

Return of the Jedi

Princess Leia- Soft Goods Endor Fatigues

If there's five more this year, I'd like to see:

ANH:
Jawa(s) - I don't think Hasbro would double up on them, but you'd expect it given the price.

Death Star Trooper - Round it out.  SA w/ mouse droid.

ESB:
Snowtrooper - SA w/ latex mask
Hoth Han - SA

ROTJ:
Endor Leia - SA w/ poncho & helmet

I'd like to see them complete the original 12 vintage figures and then focus on ESB since it got shut out from Series 2.

Star Destroyer Commander (Death Squad Commander would be even cooler  ;))
Jawas - yes, SA.  Don't cheap out.
Walrusman - the last of the original 12.

Then I'd say a SA Snowtrooper is an absolute must.

And finally... OK, it's from ROTJ, but we need a well done Emperor

Absolutely, finish the first 12 and be done with it.  That way I can make use of my second vinty display stand to display the original 12 and the VOTC remakes together on identical displays 8)  And that would mean not Walrusman, he not of original 12 my young padawan (ok, Dale's padawan).  Jawas and Death Squad Commander pretty please.

I would have asked for a sandtrooper with changeable pauldrons, but the Evolutions version is suitable enough.  Would have been a great pack-in though, changing ranks could have been fun. 

Snowtrooper would be awesome, only if they lose that cannon though, it'd be a copout as a pack-in. 

Hoth Han/Hoth Luke/Hoth Leia could be pretty sweet, though I think for Leia I would prefer the Endor as well. 

Hows about:

Death Squad Commander
Jawa 2 pack
Snowtrooper
Leia Endor
Luke Jedi
Minivans: a sign of the apocalypse.

Oi.  I guess the rye caught up with me and my "logic" tonight.  :-[

Since my choice for Walrusman was out of supposed principle, I'll change that choice.  Let's have Luke Jedi (without dumbass action feature, thank you very much).

VOTC Series 3...  Hmmm.

-ANH: Death Squad Commander...  I hope they don't do a cloth "skirt" piece on him but rather a sculpted (and flexible) one.  Removable headset and helmet.  I'd prefer they did him up grey on the VOTC card though, and later release the same figure in all black on a basic card.  I DEFY you not to buy a dozen! :)

-ANH: Luke Skywalker Do-over...  An all-sculpted Luke.  Be cool if they included an apology Stormtrooper belt along with the figure. ;)  I just have a hell of a time accepting that first one.  It's got a lot of good ideas, but man I want a single great SA Luke from ANH.  Yeah, hate me for wanting to buy a 2nd VOTC Luke ANH for $10.   ::)

-ESB Hoth Rebel Soldier...  White uniform him even though the vinty is in a brown vest.  He's still a soldier by the card's picture, so I say do the soldier up.  I figure if it exists, there's at least a remote chance it'll reship at some point.

-ESB Hoth Han Solo...  Despite all the arguing and 2 coat colors, they still f'd that figure up with a wide leg pose and action feature.  We need a new figure of Han Hoth...  A removable hood and hat would be fantastic.

-ROTJ Endor Rebel Commando...  Same as the Hoth Trooper but sculpt it like the vinty figure with the half opened coat.  Very cool figure.

Then I think it'd be great if Hasbro canned VOTC and just made super articulated figures a standard thing throughout the basic line and re-released all the VOTC on basic cards throughout the line's life.  Finally do something sensible with these fantastic figures.  Hell I'll buy almost all of them over again but I pass on Han Cantina every time I've seen him repacked...  :)  Gimme VOTC and I'm buying.

Of course...

I also see the argument for rounding out the first 12 and calling it quits if they'd wisen up and do super articulation (or damn close ala the AT-AT Driver) as the line standard too...  Be good for that lame early bird display stand.

What? ???

I guess if you wait 20 or 30 years then the ROTS stuff might be eligle to be consider PV-TSC (for Post Vintage).
You are never alone when there's a clone.

My guess

ANH

Jawa
D.S. Trooper

ESB

SA Snowtrooper
Hoth Leia

ROTJ

SA Emperor

Boushh Leia at one point in time could have been VTSC. Because she outranks her wave in Articulation. They wanted an Leia out in the Basic Line, with the Early Bird Leia being in EB, They went with Boushh Leia instead of a Slave Leia, or Endor Leia or even a Hoth Leia. 

My opinion on Series 4 (if it goes to Series 4)

ANH

Walrus Man

ESB

SA Hoth Han
SA Hoth Luke

ROTJ

Wicket
Endor Leia
