The Unleashed line is a cool as it gets for me, I have kind of stopped collecting 4" and 12" and almost all SW, I would love:

Chewbacca
Stormtrooper
Lando
Royal Guard
Pig Guard
Jabba
R2 and 3PO
Qui Gon

And of course the unleashed FX-7!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He could have all of his arms flailing and junk cool

An Unleashed Wampa would be very cool...I thought about a Wampa and Luke Hoth double set...something like Survival for the title

Is an Unleashed R5-D4 blowing a motivator out of the question? How about an Unleashed Admiral Ackbar leaning forward in his command chair screaming, "It's a trap!" And how about some more key chicks like Mon Mothma, Sy Snootles, or Oola Unleashed (or would Oola be redundant?).

Honestly though, how much life does this line have in it before it gets really silly?

I have some more ideas of Unleashed figures... 2-pack figures!!!

-- Darth Vader standing over the cape of Obi-Wan Kenobi
-- Qui-Gon Jinn with Darth Maul stabbing him in the chest with his double-bladed lightsaber
-- Darth Vader holding the Emperor, just before throwing him down the energy chute
-- Tusken Raider with bantha stick up in air, towering over Luke Skywalker on Tatooine
-- Sandtrooper #1 holding droid parts and saying to Sandtrooper #2, "Look sir, droids."
-- Luke Skywalker facing up against the Wampa

I wasn't into this line until I saw the original Vader.  Now I have them all and am really looking forward to the rest, especially that uber-cool Palpatine.

My wish list:

1.  Chewbacca "howling mad" style
2.  Gamorrean Guard
3.  Tusken Raider
4.  Stormtrooper
5.  Clonetrooper

While I do belive we'll get a Chewie and possibly a storm and clonetrooper, I doubt we'll see any of the secondary characters.  I believe Hasbro will stick to main characters, in which case, this line won't last as long I as hope it does.

I wouldn't mind seeing some background characters:

Bossk
Dengar
IG-88
Zuckuss
4-LOM
Amanaman
Ephant Mon
Hermi Odle

The more I think about it the more I like idea of a Max Rebo unleashed on the Keyboard

But how many of these will sell?  

I just finished reading the 'what killed the deluxe' thread, come in here and go, hmm, Deluxe Ackbar?  Not bloody likely I'd buy it and I buy damn near everything.  

The mains would sell - 3PO, R2, Chewie.  Lando's a stretch, IMO but could be good.  Stormie's could work as could Clonetroopers.  Any imperial with a helmet should sell well, so the DSG, Tie pilot, AT_AT driver (with cockpit?) would probably do well.  But so many of these guys don't lend themselves to either the sexy aspect (Leia, Padme) or the aggressive aspect (all the male characters).  Perhaps some of the female Jedi would lend themselves to unleashed figures, but how would they sell.

Actually, how is the line in general selling?  They are quite nice, but the price point is higher than comparable McFarlane figs (due nod to Carrie for pointing out the comparison).  It's tough for me to comment, as I've only ever seen Jango and Maul at retail.  Padme, Anakin and Vader I had through trades, but arrived here on clearance and the most recent 4 have never been seen in Canuckada, to the best of my knowledge (outside of comic shops).

I totally forgot about those guys.  Might want to also include the great all mighty... Boba Fett.

I htink Boba is in the works, isn't he?  That's what one of the earlier posts indicated.  Boba will sell very well.  

How about an unleashed Shmi?

I'm not much of a fan of this line.  Just a little too extreme for my liking, though it seems the OT characters are generally toned done a little more that the PT characters (except Jedi Luke).  The Slave Leia and this new Han are pretty cool though.  I might pick them up if I catch them on clearance.

These new additions look great IMO. So far this line has really impressed the heck out of me and I can't wait to lay my hands on these two as well as Luke, Ob1 and Palpatine. I hope we get an Unleashed Clone Trooper or Stormtrooper at some point though. Man, just think of the possibilities for a Chewie!!! ;D
