What figure will they never make?

I'd say Luke on the Medical Ship, even though he would be in a new costume...boring

How about Gragra?  He's this alien creature from EP1 who was selling those animals on Mos Espa.  It's where Jar Jar and Sebulba run into each other.  That would be a figure I would like to purchase.

Yuichi Sugiyama. I'd sooner take a Bea Arthur figure. Honestly.

Well, I gotta say it's a tie between Bea Arthur's character from the Holiday Special, and Harvey Korman's Julia Child impression, myself.  And I am very happy to say that I NEVER, EVER want to see these two immortalized in pvc.

Aside from the Holiday Special, which I think should be off limits for this thread (or you could name just about every character in the thing other than Zutton), I'm going for just about any gungan on the high council sitting by Boss Nass or other minor Ep 1 characters like Republic Cruiser Captain.

Agreed, we should stick to the movies. There are way too many EU characters that didn't deserve to be created in the first place let alone be merchandised in ANY way, shape, or form.

That said, I vote for Uncle Owen & Aunt Beru... crispy style. Not a lot of play value there aside from the obvious bendy scratch & sniph.

That's an easy enough custom.  Buy a couple of clearance Amanaman's, and paint the skeletons black.

All great ideas guys, I'll add FX-7 Unleashed, they will never make it though it would be cool.

I agree, the Tonnika sisters are doomed.  I think Garga and Quinlon Vos both have decent chances, eventually.

How true.  You throw in likeness rights, and possibly the inability to find the actresses (does anyone really know where to find these women?), and it seems like a hopeless cause.  And throw on top of that the unsavory nickname they had, and I think we definitely won't be seeing the Tonnika sisters.

I doubt we'll see the Leia figure from the medical frigate either.

I actually think Luke and Leia from the Medical Frigate will be made eventually.  There are only so many new Luke and Leia's they can do, and these two would be nice choices.  Give Luke a nifty hand/arm with an open up panel, people would buy it.   ;D
