40th Anniversary Ideas for Star Wars
« on: November 1, 2016, 12:57 PM »
Hey Hasbro, this is a little late to get this ideas out on time for you to make reality, so I will use this thread to list my idea for an interesting anniversary celebration... and others can jump in and share there ideas as well.

I call it: A NEW HOPE 40th Anniversary figures: 40 for 40

12-Back Commemorative Series
1. Luke Skywalker (Resurgence of the Jedi Repack)
2. Princess Leia (SA New soft goods)
3. Artoo-Detoo/R2-D2 (Repack)
4. Chewbacca (Closed mouth version kitbash)
5. See-Threepio/C-3PO (Repaint BAD Tusken Attack)
6. Darth Vader (TVC Repack)
7. Stormtrooper (Repack)
8. Obi-Wan “Ben” Kenobi (Resurgence of the Jedi Repack)
9. Han Solo [Yavin Ceremony] (New)
10. Jawa (New unmade Jawa)
11. Tusken Raider (SA kitbash)
12. Death Squad Commander (TVC repaint)
20-Back Commemorative Series
13. Greedo (Repack/not cloth vest)
14. Momaw Nadon [Hammerhead] (New}
15. Snaggletooth (Target 3-pack Repack)
16. Ponda Baba [Walrusman] (TVC Repack)
17. Luke Skywalker X-Wing Pilot [Red 5] (Repack)
18. R5-D4 (Repack)
19. RA-7 [Death Star Droid] (BAD Repack)
20. Lars Homestead GNK [Power Droid] (Repaint Target 3-Pack)
Tatooine
21. Owen Lars (Infinities Comic Pack Repack)
22. Beru Lars (New)
23. Senni Tonnika/Karoly D'ulin (New)
24. Brea Tonnika/Shada D'ukal (New)
25. Wuher (New)
26. Bannis Keeg (New)
27. Arliel Schous Defel (New)
28. Yerka Mig (New)
29. Tzizvvt (New)
Rebels
30. Gen. Dodonna (New)
31. Wedge Antilles [Red 2] (Repack)
32. Capt. Antilles (New)
Imperials
33. Grand Moff Tarkin (TVC repaint)
34. Death Star Gunner (Repack or more articulation)
35. Wullf Yularen (New)
36. Gen. Trech Molock (Kitbash, New Head)
37. Gen. Hurst Romodi (Kitbash, New Head)
38. Comm. Jir (Kitbash, New Head)
39. Comm. Praji (Kitbash,New Head)
40. Officer Evax (Shared Body with Yularen, New head)
Multi-packs
1. Modal Nodes (New SA, Instrument pack-ins)
2. Special Action Figure Set: Creature Set (Vintage Deco Greedo, Hammerhead and Walrus Man)

Stats: (not including multi-packs)
• New: 15/40 (37.5%)
• Kitbash: 7/40 (17.5%)
• Repack/Repaint: 18/40 (45%)

I thought that repacks and repaints would be higher percentage, but kitbashes are mainly new heads so tooling would be minimal (I think). But this might be a good mix of new and repacks, getting out the main heroes and villains again plus some background characters, along with some new, never been done characters. I'd like the main characters and troops to be SA, while the rest can have 8-10 points of articulation. While this isn't a list of 40 that I would choose for myself (since I have some of the figures already), but I thought it was pretty balanced as what Hasbro might offer to the general public. Thoughts?

Forgot about Rebel Fleet Trooper.  He'd make for a nice addition in the 40.  Just for with the TVC version, but add a holster!

Fleet Trooper needs a new head...preferably with a  goatee..

I'd redo Death Star Gunner with the "leather jacket" look from ANH. Or at least get his chest "armor" piece right.

I'd be happy if they just repainted the one we got or stuck on any of the myriad that fit but with a new hair color to it.

Oh...  and a holster that works too.
