Admiral Ackbar
« on: January 15, 2007, 11:55 AM »
Now guys a character this classic just has to be resculpted, and soon. So much face and lines in ROTJ and just the sheer importance of the role he played makes him eligible for so much better than the plastic treatment he has received. Last time we even saw him was POTF2 and that sculpt and articulation were inadequate at best. Id like to see a new SA incarnation of him perhaps in VOTC or a Rebel Leaders battl pack featuring him, Mon Mothma, OTC Madine, OTC General Lando w/new head, and another Mon Calamari guy, maybe a repack of the POTJ officer.

Cmon Hasbro, bring on the Ackbar! Make him good, make him soon!

i dunno, i guess janson would be nice, frix i have no clue who that is (black ROTJ guy?), dash well i guess but movie characters are more important to me overall and i wasnt a big fan of SOTE...

ackbar is just far more significant than those other guys, not to disrespect your opinion or anything.

another rebel that would spring to mind after ackbar is toryn farr, the hoth gal.

Count me in, too. Ackbar needs a resculpt more than just about anybody.

I'd be cool with a new Ackbar, but he isn't at the top of my rescuplt list.  I'd rather have the rest of the bounty hunters redone, SA versions of endor trooper, hoth trooper, a good rebel fleet trooper and a half dozen SA Rebel Pilots first.

I'd like to see Ackbar done over again.  Preferrably in the Vintage line.

Ackbar gets my vote, as long as he is resculpted and completely SA.

Ackbar's certainly on my resculpt wishlist...  I wouldn't put him at the tippy top, but of POTF2 figures he's up there for certain.  I'd say of POTF2-only figures, he's behind Nein Numb, Dr. Evazan, Ponda Baba, Tarkin, and Zuckuss, but he's still a highly sought-after resculpt for me.

I'd like decent articulation (Death Star Gunner-level) with a command chair...  THAT would make a pretty slick figure I think.

Like I say though, he's not my top priority, but he's definitely wanted. :)

I can go for an Ackbar Re-sculpt. It's about time.

Ackbar, Ackbar, Ackbar - oops got carried away, lol.

Anycase I think they should do all of the POTF2 sculpts again, with the ability they have now Ackbar would be really cool ball jointed everything.

Also saying this most of the POTJ could use some loving as well, and a lot of the SAGA - someone mentioned OTC General Lando why! - He is a piece of crap, actually theres only one real passable Lando and thats the Skiff Guard outfit Lando the rest are just so lame.
