Medicom is really into only doing repaints of existing kubs so lets see some wishlists for characters that require only new paint, maybe some slight retooling for hair or something.

Some I've come up with.

Translucent blue hologram Luke:



Black Death Star Droid:



X-Wing pilot Biggs:



Green A-Wing pilot:



Lobot (new communication thing clips over protruding ears)



He obviously would have legs. Professor X is just a good reference for a bald head.

AT-ST Driver (spot the difference)



It's a obvious joke, there is none. I wouldn't say no to a straight re-issue ;)

That's a pretty good basis right there for a 5 pack, it's just a shame they came to an end a long time ago.

There's also the umpteenth R2, C-3PO and Chewbaccas but I've had my fill of them.

Let's see some creative ideas.

the vintage colors thing could be cool. Ponda baba in 1977 glory on a card would be nice.

Bespin is still too underrepresented in the line, but there is no inkling that there is a line left to add them.  :-\

I would take anything other than a reissued figure on a card.  I'd really like to know what their long term game plan is.  It sure feels like these are dead in the water and sinking fast.  Were they not amking enough money at $400 per case?

More vintage homages is a direction I could live with, like the recent DX4 and carded Tie Pilot. Off the top of my head I'm not that familiar with the vintage figures so I thought I'd throw together a couple of comparisons.

Yak face



A repaint could easily be done, it's subtle but different. Kind of like the series 7 Anakin chase and the vintage repaint that was put on a card.

I only just noticed now that Yak face doesn't have regular kubrick hands.

Walrus man



A plain body with basic colours like Hammerhead's with a Walrus head.

Another almost too easy one is Greedo. Just remove the vest and orange and replace with two shades of green.

Vintage style first 21 box set all carded. DX5 Bespin. DX6 Endor assault.
Cantina 10pack including re-sculpt of Hammerhead. ***Dewback in Canadian ESB box***, Wampa and Taun Taun two pack Trilogo box....
They could just do 5 packs. Hoth, Ewok, Army builders... etc
The build a thing killed it, just should have released ships [Landspeeder, Walker] and creatures as box sets with exclusive figures.
Way to kill a good thing medicom and no power droid to finish of the first 21 run? ...That's just bad form guys. Clowns.. :(

I'd like to see a POTF set with coins.  Most of these already exist in some form, but I'd like to see...

Imperial Gunner,
Pop-up Lightsaber R2,
General Calrissian,
EV-9D9,
Green A-Wing Pilot

They could reuse existing molds for a lot of this.  Come on Medicom, we miss you.
