This is the OT movie that really has been ignored relative to the number of characters in it. I could probably come up with 20 I would like to see. But mostly my wish is to have all vintage figures redone in the modern era.

1. Luke Skywalker, Endor/Final Duel (like vintage POTF endor luke but with removable helmet)
2. Yarna D'al Gargan
3. Hermi Odle
4. Romba
5. Warok
6. Lumat
7. Klaatu (palace)
8. Nikto (skiff driver, as vintage)
9. Sim Aloo, Imperial Dignitary
10. B-wing Pilot (human)

Lets see if I can really come up with 20.

11. Jabba's Old Interpreter with droid torture rack
12. R2-D2 with pop-up saber (handle only)
13. Black-tuniced officer 'you rebel scum'
14. Sgt Doallyn
15. Fozek
16. Endor Princess Leia redux
17. 'human skiff guard who shoots Luke's hand'
18. SA Rebel Commando
19. Ewok who takes AT-ST with Chewie
20. Other Ewok who takes AT-ST with Chewie
Attachment leads to jealousy. The shadow of greed, that is.

The only one i could really add to that list is a new, balljointed red guard (yes i'm spoiled rotten LOL) I COULD say Mon Mothma, but look at how well she's warming pegs to this day from the ROTS line up. I know everyone likes ewoks and all that, but why not Mon Cals?! I think we could use an SA Ackbar at least, maybe some SA Sullustans (the Falcon's co-pilot on the DS II run, i forget his name, Nien Nunb or something?) And why not a Bothan or two? Let's go all out folks! I know the Skiff guards are cool and all, but we got a revamped slave leia, so why not do a Mara Jade too? Or Oola? And while we're at it, SA Salacious Crumb and Max Rebo and crew!


ok, now i'm just being silly, but hey, an SA Ewok isn't a little wacky?!

Ok here we go.....

In no particular order:

1.  SA Lando Skiff (the recent one was good, but still can't bend his knees)
2.  SA Jedi Luke (jabba's Palace)
3.  SA Lumat
4.  SA Death Star Trooper/Naval Fleet trooper
5.  SA Romba
6.  SA Rebel Commando with 4 different neutral expression head sculpts
7.  SA Rebel Commander (Human) at Briefing
8.  SA Admiral Ackbar (with Chair)
9.  SA LukeJedi (final battle/endor with removable helmet/poncho)

For the record I limit the definition of SA to: Balljointed Elbows, Shoulders, Knees and head, Swivel wrists, waists and ankles.

1. Luke Endor (soft goods)
2. Leia Endor (soft goods)
3. Klaatu
4. B-Wing Pilot (Human)
5. SA Endor Rebel Soldier
6. SA Gamorrean Guard
7. SA Endor Stormtrooper (dirty VOTC repaint)
8. Hermi Odle

Take that last one and repaint/re-hash him 4 times as follows:

1. SA Jedi Knight/Death Star II Luke with non-VOTC, new headsculpt- with removeable (softgoods maybe?) tunic, belt, and swappable right hand (one gloved, one not); for accessories a new cloth cloak, ROTS Obi Wan saber and hilt mold with appropriate different colors, and Saga '04 Jabba's Palace Luke blaster

Did you get all that down, Scott?

Two thoughts:

1.  Obi-Wan's hilt and Luke's Jedi hilt are different.  They're close, but still different. 

2.  Is it safe to say that the idea of Ewok two-packs is dead?  I think the only Ewok two-pack they ever did was Wicket and Logray eight years ago, and the last three Ewoks released in the standard line have all been single Ewoks (POTF Teebo, OTC Wicket, and Saga 2 Chirpa).


The only reason I keep hope alive right now for an ewok 2 pack is the rumored Podracer 2 pack.   Then again we don't really know what that 2 pack will consist of...if it's even true.

Just a note

The ROTJ version of the vote will end 2 weeks early so we can do the Sextilogy Tournament of Champions (the top 10 of the 6 movies based on the voted on top 60)

This will start Sunday night so get those ROTJ votes in by Saturday

We need to do this to get everything done by Comic Con

Quote
#1   Moff Jerjerrod
#2   Yarna d'al Gargan
#3   Weequay drummer for the band
#4   Hermi Odle
#5   Warok/ Romba
#6   Chief Chirpa/Lumat
#7   Bib Fortuna (resculpt)
#8   Sgt. Doallyn
#9   Klaatu Palace version
#10 Female ewok and baby

That was my last update in the original thread.   I can't say that I'd change anything, but I love the other ideas listed in this thread.   I might be tempted to push out Bib Fortuna and replace him with SA Emperor with soft goods robe, but that's about it.  I also would love many of the SA army builders. My other honorable mentions go to  Skiff Nikto (Vintage Version), Weequay Skiff Master, resculpted Endor Han, Luke, & Leia with soft goods (these were left off the list since after multiple tries, Hasbro has never gotten them right).   I just noticed that from the same post I pulled my quote off that at one point I had a resculpt of the vintage imperial dignitary and he was replaced with the female ewok & wokling.   Maybe that gets honorable mention now and changing my list to:

#1   Moff Jerjerrod
#2   Yarna d'al Gargan
#3   Ak-Rev w/ drums
#4   Hermi Odle
#5   Warok/ Romba
#6   Chief Chirpa/Lumat
#7   Bib Fortuna (resculpt)
#8   Sgt. Doallyn
#9   Klaatu Palace version
#10 Vintage Imperial Dignatary (resculpt) [he was the coolest looking]


Can I nest anymore quotes here?  For someone that's been around JD since 2002 and only 172 posts, I bet most of them are replying to these Wishlists.   Well, here's my 2006 list for ROTJ:

1.   Hermi Odle
2.   Yarna D'al Gargan
3.   Sim Aloo
4.   Romba/Warok 2-pack  --- Fantastic idea Jeff!
5.   Wompus/Lumat 2-pack  --- (see above comment)
6.   SA Klaatu (Palace/vintage)
7.   Weequay (blonde - Skiff with running change to other Weequay skiff guard)
8.   SA Emperor w/soft goods robe & chair (& maybe metal Luke lightsaber handle with magnet in the armrest of the throne chair for Palpatine to put it down on.
9.   Ak-Rev - Weequay drummer w/drum -  Hasbro must complete Jabba's band and this is the next one we need.
10. BG-J38 - just a very cool looking droid w/stand or whatever he has infront of him.

Honorable mention:  2-1A with torture rack... (maybe this needs to be a deluxe figure.   That was the toughest one to leave off.  SA Rebel Soldiers (with all the trimmings, including head swaps), SA AT-ST driver, SA Rebel Crewmen, Paploo, Wicket, Logray, and last but not least... Sergeant Doallyn & SA Endor Leia.
