*1) Grand Moff Tarkin (Done in the Motti style. NOT the inferior Ozzel/Tarkin style.)
*2) Death Star Gunner (Ball joints, new helmet sculpt and removable chest plate please)
*3) Imperial Naval Trooper (Like the Vintage one, we've got 13 years to have the POTF2 one redone.)
*4) Luke Skywalker in Stormtrooper armor (Quote: "Aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?")
5) Han Solo in Stormtrooper armor (Basically a VOTC with a removable helmet, rem. helmet goes for Luke too)
6) Dutch Vander
7) Rebel Fleet Trooper (just for Jesse James)
8) Stormtrooper (SA)

Deluxe: Turbo Laser to go with Gunner.

I'd be hoping for a modern or well sculpted Wedge, but since there's in internet exclusive carded wedge with a dutch vander body, I don't see it happening, and frankly the thought makes me upset because I'm not paying 12 bucks U.S. for something I'm going to open anyways.

I thought we were getting 8 figures? If we are, get rid of the Vader and Stormtrooper in my list.

BATTLE OF DEATH STAR (8 figures):

-Stormtrooper Han; VOTC body with removeable helmet and blaster.
-Stormtrooper Luke; See above.

I think we should get just Han in Stormie duds because the last Han Stormie we got was a Froot Loops exclusive while the Luke Stormie was wide-release.

But then the Luke would look really dumb next to the superior updated Han. :P

SA Death SQUAD Commander (Death Star Trooper)....with 4 different heads in the Package, removable helmet and perhaps different colored uniforms.

I think the extra heads would take less plastic than the Hologram figures they are including....and could be hidden in the packaging like Luke Dagobah's extra head.


On the topic of Luke and Han in Stormtrooper...would you prefer actual removable helmet or perhaps just a Switchable head?  Does it make a difference if the removable helmet has to be oversized?  I was thinking, I'd rather just have the neckpost the same size for the Luke/han heads as the helmet, so that the helmet would not be overly large...has anybody else considered this?  I look at my clone Commander from the Evo Pack and his helmet just looks too big next to my regular clone Commander...

I'd be good with either.  The removable helmets lately do seem too puffy, but I wouldn't display Luke and Han with them anyways.

I wouldn't either, but I would want the helmeted version for the "Aren't you a little short for a Stormtrooper" mini-dio.  I saw some cool customs of these two somewhere, they even shortened the Luke one.  If the big H could pull that off, I'd be thrilled.
