- VOTC Stormtrooper
- Evolutions ROTS Clone Trooper (Red/Deviss colors or Blue/501st colors)
- Evolutions AOTC Clone Trooper (white or green or blue - we have enough yellow and red)

That's about all I want...  maybe some Astrodroid repaints or Ewok repaints would be nice too.

Great List Darth Slothus! Here's mine:

5. Cantina Han
4. POTF2 Luke Skywalker w/ original accessories
3. POTF2 Rebel Fleet Trooper (for JesseJames)
2. Throne Room Duel Luke Skywalker (everyone wants a DS II Luke)
1. Saga Deluxe Anakin w/ Lightsaber Slashing Action, without the sliced Geonosian

Right then. How about this:

1. VOTC Stormtrooper (if not, how about a retooled Commtech with VOTC arms and headsculpt?)
2. VOTC Chewbacca (alternatively Early Bird would be okay)
3. POTF2 EU Mara Jade w/ Evolutions Anakin lightsaber and new, smaller blaster (it'd fit in okay with the current "Expanded Universe" cards)
4. Saga General Gear Lando
5. Evolutions Darth Vader

Amanaman from Deluxe

This really, really clogged up the shelves for a while... but after that Empire comic series where the Amanamin kick the Imperial outpost's ass, I have to agree that I'd buy a few and make an army...

Paploo from AT-ST

Oh, come on Jim... Do you have this figure? It's a piece of crap, buddy.

Brad, I will take any form of ewok since we will always get hosed.  Throw in a few accessories and give the arms some articulation, repaint him and I am fine with it. 

Also, I know the Amanaman pegwarmed, but I want one released on a basic/single card to add to my carded collection.  I think it would look excellent with the yellow on black. 

After things settle down in mid summer, maybe I can make a custom Ewok or two for you... do you like customs?

Do kitbashes count as repacks?  I'm gonna list them separately I think...

My repack list:

-VOTC Stormtrooper...  Hands down this is the most needed figure on the pegs in WIDE abundance at a price no higher than any basic figure.  It's a must, and Hasbro's jerking everyone off by not doing it.  Stormtroopers should always be on the pegs, no question.

-SA E3 Clones...  Not just white, but all paintjobs.  The SA sculpt should be put out (with both rifles) in 501st blue, red shocktrooper, Coruscant Grey, and Utapau Orange...  I'd mix in EU Green marking, and Neyo Red marking troopers as well...  And I'd even consider a Kashyyyk Camo'd trooper.  I know some dislike EU, but for me it's easy money for Hasbro and I'd gladly buy them as I like the different clone designs myself.  Mix it up on accessories and paintjobs and you could really have just a line revolving around Clones.

-SA E2 Clones...  White, and all the officers/non-coms.  These too should see the light of day on the pegs.

-VTSC Biker Scouts...  I don't want him repainted for Kashyyyk duty as they wear unique items on their armor.  I'd just like a straight re-release of the VTSC Biker Scout in the basic line.  I don't even mind what I've paid for the ones I have.  I'd love to buy more.

-Any Evolutions or VOTC/VTSC Figure...  Short of C-3PO and Old Obi-Wan, I feel that EVERY VOTC/VTSC and Evolutions figure deserves a re-release in the basic line.  Some maybe need a new headsculpt or some such, but all could see the light of day again IMO and I'd probably buy it all over again.

For kit-bashes though I have some other ideas...

-Imperial Officer...  Re-release the Imp Officer with the TSC AT-AT Driver's legs, and you have him in grey and black.  There's two great figures...  6 if you use all 3 headsculpts for both.

-Teebo w/Wicket Hood...  Repaint him any color you want, and he's a perfect generic Ewok Warrior.  Pack in any accessory and you're off and running with a great army builder.

Kitbashes are different to me than re-releases or repaints...  For repaints though, the Clones just seem logical to me.  Made up designs even work for me, so long as they don't get too funky.  I'd buy shadow troopers though, and other EU designs.  Why not?

VOTC Boba's a good one...

I want a new Gam Guard that's more poseable, and same with Pruney...  I'd like a Prune Face with a removable eyepatch and a full eye underneath, that way you could have him double as the other prunies.

My list:

OTC

VOTC Boba Fett
VTSC Endor Han
VTOC Stormtrooper
VTSC Scout Trooper
VTSC Pilot Luke

My reasons:

All are great SA custom fodder, Mandos, troops, smugglers, pilots galore.

PT

ROTS Red Royal Guard
ROTS SA Clone with extra AOTC head
CW Arc Trooper
POTJ Security Battle Droid
SAGA 06 Scorch

Again, all are great custom fodder and army builders.

I would love for this to be remade without the eyepatch.  Or have a running change with patches and without.

For a kitbash, I was hoping that Hasbro would of taken the Imperial Officer and given him the DS Trooper head and helmet.  Although not 100% accurate  I would buy multiples in a heartbeat.  Doing a running change to a grey uniform and we get both variations.

DST's in ROTJ were wearing the jumpsuit so it'd be accurate for one film...  Just not ANH.  I'd still buy it, but it'd be really ideal if that kitbash had them use either the pack-in TIE Pilot's legs, or better yet the OTC TIE Pilot resculpts legs...  If it would work anyway.

I know the POTF2 pack-in TIE Pilot's legs fit the Imp Officer sculpt perfectly but they're not as nice as the OTC Pilot's sculpt.

I woudl be happy to never see another repack.  I know they're needed...but I just can't get into thinking about old product on the pegs again.
