Hmmm, I wonder who it will be...

My guess for first Scum and Villainy figure - Greedo.

They can use the same standard body and only have to tool up a new head and hands.

What does everyone else think?

That's the first one who popped into my head as well.  Not quite as much sculpting as other aliens/figures involved, he's pictured in the write up (which doesn't necessarily mean anything), and Greedo has just been on a tear in Star Wars collecting lately.  A new Galactic Heroes figure, a new VTSC figure, a rumored Unleashed figure, a Bust Up, Gentle Giant bookends, etc.  Greedo's all the rage this year :P.  I'm sure Fett is the one that is most wanted off the bat, but I just see them holding him until later.  Greedo is my guess as well.

I'm trying to decide what I want to do with this line from now on.  I held off, and thus missed out, on the Jedi Luke - but preordered the Bespin Han right off the bat.  Part of me wants to collect the OT characters from this line, which would limit it a little bit, but I'm not sure if I could afford it.  A nice glass case full of these things would look purty I'm guessing though :).  For now, if the next figure is an OT-based character, I'll probably throw in a preorder just in case.  Although I don't know if/how the ordering process has changed since the Han in February (with the Inclusive business and all of that).

I think I would pass on Greedo.

Well there is are just so many they could throw in there.  They tease us with that Jabba picture.  Man I wish!  Although it would probably be $100 easy.  I would like Hammerhead as well.  But I am thinking it will be something like this - Jango or Boba (not both), Greedo, Prince Xizor (since they mention Black Sun), A Character from the Palace - assume Jabba or Bib Fortuna, Leia Boushh (but that's a Hero of the Rebellion pick). 

Oh I don't know it should be interesting whatever they come up with.

Best news I have seen in regards to the Sideshow line. I really hope this means we will be getting random Jabba aliens, especially Jabba. I would like Yakface, a Gammorean Guard, Amanaman, and all the others. Sadly, I think we will be getting greedo first. I think they will be milking the standard body new head and hands only thing for a while.  ::)

I have an extra Luke coming to me that you can have if you want it.

It would be nice to see a Jango or Boba come out of this line but I would think that they would save those two for the Bounty Hunter line that is inevitably going to come. I would be floored to see a Jabba come out of this line!

A bounty hunter line would be interesting, but perhaps not enough for its own subdivision.

I have to agree.  I think we'll see bounty hunters in this line.

I think any figure in this line is made from...Mos Eisley scenes? (according to Obi won..you'll never find more than here).

If they do anything else they're contradicting the movies' line. :P

Maybe for their first curveball, they'll do the Human version of Jabba that was originally cut from ANH...How weird would THAT be? :P

I hope this line gets us a new body type character sooner than later.
