1. SA Bespin Luke Skywalker with new, good headsculpt (whatever happened to Dark Jedi Luke, Commtech Luke, and POTF2 Bespin Luke? The VOTC/VTSC headsculpt is lame, and I know they could do a likeness of Mark Hammil better than that because they already did 8 years ago)
2. Smuggler Gear Lando Calrissian (SA is good but not completely requisite- but this figure is too cool to never be made)
3. Resculpt SA Bespin Escape Leia
4. SA Snowtrooper
5. Resculpt Hoth Leia (pref. SA)
6. Resculpt Bespin Dress Leia with real articulation and softgoods (why must all figures of this outfit be rubbish?)
7. VTSC-style Bespin Gear Han Solo (with carbonite Han headsculpt :) I can dream, right?... or customize, which is why this is low on the list)
8. Resculpt Captain/Admiral Piett with hinge or ball knee joints (What? Me suggest a good figure and custom fodder at the same time? Never)
9. SA Resculpt Yoda (am I the only one who thinks that the POTF2 head had some things going for it that have been missedin newer yellow headsculpts?)
10. Willrow Hood/Ice Cream Maker Guy (why not? But... I did kinda vote for a new Mara Jade, sorry)

Luke is an obvious choice for the VTSC. And as an aside, I'd kinda like to see the VOTC Lando repacked/rereleased...

This was my list as of the last update I made in the original thread:

Quote
1.  Major Bren Derlin
2.  General Veers in Imperial uniform w/ snap-on armor
3.  Lobot resculpt
4.  Captain Needa
5.  Toryn Farr
6.  Zev Senesca - Rogue 2
7.  Dagobah Luke resculpt w/accesseries
8.  Non-buff Snowspeeder Luke resculpt
9.  Black Bespin Guard (Sgt. Edian)
10. Yoda w/backpack, & other accessories resculpt

I'm assuming/hoping the Medical Frigate Luke rumor is true because I would like to see that as well (besides, I only have 2 Lukes on my list!!!)   The Jeremy Bullock Imp. officer and E-3PO were also hard to leave off, as well as ICMG.   Sorry about that, OCB.   Hopefully the Dagobah Luke & Yoda will be made as well and I can add that back in as well as a super articulated Snowtrooper (if I don't chose to add Jeremy Bullock Imp. officer and E-3PO into the list).

So, I choose:

1.   Major Bren Derlin
2.   General Veers in Imperial uniform w/ snap-on armor
3.   Captain Needa
4.   Toryn Farr
5.   Zev Senesca - Rogue 2
6.   Non-buff Snowspeeder Luke resculpt
7.   Black Bespin Guard (Sgt. Edian)
8.   Ice Cream Maker Guy
9.   Luke Medical Frigate
10. Leia Medical Frigate (with kissing action!!!  ;D ;D)

Well, like many others, I have 2 spots from the 2004 list empty.  This is the easiest of the OT films by far, but there are about 12-15 I'd like

1.   SA Luke Snowspeed pilot outfit
2.   Torryn Farr (w/ another console, but with a different readout on top)
3.   Captain Needa w/ removable cap
4.   SA Hoth Rebel Trooper (Echo Base)
5.   SA Snowtrooper
6.   SA Bespin Luke
7.   Bespin Guards (multiple head sculpts, at least black and oriental)
8.   Luke Medical Frigate
9.   SA Bespin Luke
10. Ice Cream Maker Guy

Honorable Mention:  SA Hoth Han, Leia Medical Frigate, Lando Smuggler, SA Hoth Leia, SA various Snowspeeder Pilots (Wedge, Hobbie, Zev), Han Sol w/ Torture rack

I can't believe I didn't have  a previous list...I must have been stuck under a rock or something....so here is my list..in no particular order:

1.  Hoth Luke Super Artiulcated, with 2 heads (clean and Post-Wampa)

2.  Hoth Han Super Articulated with the Abiility to have hood up and hood down.

3.  Bespin Han Super Articulated (also works for Echo Base Hangar)

4.  Bespin Luke Super Articulated (Rumor mills don't effect my vote, if we see pics of this stuff I'll fix this list)

5.  Bespin Security Guard Super Articulated (basically an update of the Vintage guy with Moustache)

6.  Hoth Rebel Soldier Super Articulated with multiple head sculpts included in the package (one clean shaven, one with moustache, one with beard and hair color variations)

7.  Luke Snowspeeder pilot Super Articulated.  With gun belt, grappling hook and grenades

8.  Echo Base Rebel (like the Vintage) Super Articulated again, multiple headsculpts and facial hair colors and combos.

9.  Snowspeeder Pilots SuperArticulation with multiple head sculpts and even helmets.  I'd like one with the "flying cap" as well as just the usual head sculpts.

10.  SNOWTROOPER...do I even need to put SuperArticulation at this point? It seems so obvious that this figure is needed/wanted.

Summing up:

3 Lukes
2 Hans
5 Army Builders

Like most of you guys, I need 15 spots on my list (at least).  But these 10 are who I want RIGHT NOW.  If the VOTC2 wave 2 rumors are true, I'll bump 2 off this list and add two of the "honorable mentions".

1. Bespin Han Solo - current sculpt is OK, but an SA version would be sweet
2. VOTC Boba Fett - ESB colors
3. Toryn Farr (sp?) - she sticks in one's head enough to warrant a figure
4. SA Snowtrooper - duh.
5. Medical Frigate Luke
6. Medical Frigate Leia
7. New Ugnauts - different than the last batch for us diorama people
8. Piett - needs an update
9. Hoth Pilots - with the puffy suits
10. Rebel Hoth Soldier - that last one was pretty abysmal

***DELUXE FIGURE? - I think it'd be really cool to see a scale probe droid with a ridiculously detailed sculpt.


wow, i didn't realize how few choices were left out there for ESB characters. I hope to god that they DON'T MAKE THE #*$(&#$% ICE CREAM MAKER GUY! I don't know what you people are thinking.

1) SA Rebel Trooper (Hoth Gear)...  The ultimate Hoth Rebel Trooper in the footsoldier white uniforms.  Working holster w/sidearm, removable hat/goggles, rifle, removable backpack.

2) SA Hoth Storm"Snow"Trooper...  Cloth Kama/skirt, cloth facemask, holster for E11 blaster, and that'd suit me fine.

3)  SA Hoth Han Solo...  A cloth hood w/removable hat, working holster w/pistol.  The perfect Han Solo for his scenes on Hoth.

4)  SA Rebel Snowspeeder Pilot (Dak)...  Average sized SA Pilot w/removable helmet.

5)  SA Snowspeeder Luke...  Smaller, removable helmet...  Good Dagobah X-Wing Luke too.

6)  SA Bespin Luke...  Working holster, hilt for belt, saber...  Battle damaged head pack-in, and removable hand.

7)  SA Hoth Rebel Tech...  Boring as he may be.  Removable hat, headset, chair, tools...  He could double as a command center tech with the gear.

8 ) SA Hoth Leia...  Include Ion Control Panel or other random computer console and maybe a chair.

9)  Ice Cream Maker Guy...  Must be done.

10) Medical Gown Luke...  Good for the end of ESB and the scen on Hoth.
