So with porkette there being part of the "30th anniversary celebration" or whatever they're calling it, does anyone else think we might see some other classic characters?  I'm not sure where they can go really, as we already have a classic Obi, classic Han, classic Chewie done.  Luke in Tatooine gear?  Boring.  Luke with removable blast helmet and lightsaber?  Better.

Suggestions?

I'd like to see a Jawa with Gonk Droid or Tusken Raider...

There's bound to be some sort of tatooine luke showing up eventually.  Maybe the classic/bespin lando as well?  As mentioned, a lot of the main characters are being done.  One character that's missing (but could likely never be done as a mini-bust) is r2.
I'm still waiting for a tie pilot too - I thought that one would have been done a long time ago.

I'd love to see a Tie Pilot and an AT-AT driver.  Where's my snowtrooper?  Or Royal Guard (a little boring, perhaps).

I would expect to see a farm boy Luke soon, R2 just is not going to happen in mini bust form according to GG themselves & a TIE pilot would be a welcome addition for me as well!  They seem to be dragging their feet with the Star Wars bust production lately, I think they have way too much on their plates with some of the other lines and formats to keep up with it all.  I have been hoping for something new so bad in bust form that I decided to make my own:

Thats brilliant!
I was considering to a similar thing using a koto kits I knocked up a couple of photoshops:
 


Alos my  Chewies arrived!
Its brilliant, It is 8" tall.
Most interesting thing about it is the forearms, there made from a solid but felxible rubbery material so we'll have none of those dangling hairs snapping.
It has definately just become my favourite bust its an excellent piece.
Unfortunately the girlfriends making me wait until my Birthday later in the month for mine so no picsof it next to Han, but I did snap a few photos while I was checking for damage.

I NEED TO FIND A CHEWIE MINI BUST #4,978...

I know this is worse than finding a needle in a haystack but i'm going to try and attempt to find it. They are just hitting now so I figured getting the word out early couldn't hurt. My birthdate is April 9th, 1978 so i'm trying to get #4978 out of 8,000. I'll gladly pay a premium if anyone finds it...

I'll keep a look out for you. I didn't even preorder this one but give the production number I'm not too worried about finding it cheap. Can't wait! Especially for Maul and Grievous. ;D

This sure was a pleasant surprise.  Got my pre-order in for two of these bad boys this morning.  Gotta love being able to switch brain bucket on or off, or both. :)

Good thing I got online tonight. Thankfully they still have some available so I was able to get my order in for 2 of these.
