Actually, I could go for the dead Ewoks. ;)

I'm hoping they avoid the Bea Arthur - Cantina Owner figure myself.

The guy that hugs Malakili is on my top Jabba's Goons list actually.  I'd buy him in a heartbeat...

Luke Toshi Station and Jabba's Prisoner Chewie already exist.

The beedy eyed rancor keeper's friend though, I love that guy.  He had a cool voice too in the film, all weepy and stuff.  I want that figure actually.

Yeah...I'd buy the guy that hugs the Rancor Keeper too.

Although they made a Luke that looks like the Toshi Station figure, it isn't actually called "Toshi Station Luke".  Which is why they shouldn't make another one, just to rename it.  Same with the Chewie prisoner, wasn't it Boush's prisoner?  The old ploy by Hasblo... to take an exisiting figure and simply rename and repackage it!

--So what I'm saying is that this whole topic is a joke.  An open discussion about the comedic value in b.g. characters and their worth to fans.  Truth is, I would probably buy all of them.  But the point is that what we would consider to be ridiculous figures, sometimes actually work... or at least, we buy them.  Cases in point: Porkins.  Absolutely ridiculous.  I bought two... love the fat b*stard.  Also - the mutton chops guy from the bar with Chewie... A great, background character and interesting choice for a figure.  There's a lot to be said about that.  Take Ewok Corpses for example.  Stupid idea, but I know a lot of people who would buy them.   Dengar in tank top... let's say for sake of argument, in the Expanded Universe some day, we see this...  we see Dengar in his hut, or whatever, in a tank top letting his hair down, drinking a beer... what have you.  Well, d*mn, that's about as interesting as the Lucas Family Collector's set in my opinion.  I'll take it.

I do not want to sceze the legs to make the arms go up and down, I just want to pose the god%#@!@%% figure.....

So that's refressing..... 8)
