I voted for zam.  I think she's a great design that was never executed well. There are a lot of AOTC figures that need another pass.  Still want a perfect snowspeeder luke first though ;)

look at the Tin Jango, everyone wanted a jango and they gave it too us, just not the way we want it.



 ;)

I voted for zam.  I think she's a great design that was never executed well. There are a lot of AOTC figures that need another pass. 

 :) Thanks! And I wish everyone thought this way about AOTC. I think its the movie with the most undermade (for lack of a better word) and underquality figures.

Last time I checked, Zam was definitely not a main character. In fact she was pretty unimportant in the main scheme of things. LFL could've easily replaced her with, I don't know, just about any other assassin-bounty hunter type character. Maybe I'm just biased on account of AOTC is my least favorite SW film.

Okay, Reid, I guess youre right. Shes not a MAIN character. But she is important. Basically I guess my response to this is if Naboo Flight Crew can get a somewhat decent figure than Zam certainly should get a great one.

I can't believe the people who didn't vote for all 25.  So many opportunities for Dorme lost!   :) >:(

I feel the same way, only about Zam.  :'(  >:(

I feel that way about Padme! (I could honestly get some statistics about the #s of Padmes done compared to not done... and she is a main character.

I agree on zam...  If I had to narrow that list down, she'd be one of the tops I think.  Two figures, and neither were very good, so Hasbro's still got a ways to go with that one I'm afraid.

I disagree on Zam... 

I'd much rather get my first Yarna or my first Willrow over my third Zam.   :P

Just about all of my list of 25 was first-time figures and I'd much see those over a third version of Zam, whether we "need" it or not.

To me, the lack of a decent first sculpt makes a resculpt equal to even new figures...  Of course though, my desire for any given figure outweighs resculpt/new or anything else, so obviously resculpts of certain army builders take precedence to me...  Zam over Wilrow?  hmmm...  I'd probably go with Wilrow first there.

Zam over Yarna though?  No doubt in my mind I'd rather have a new Zam Wessel than Yarna...  I just don't care about Yarna I guess.  There's a lot I'd vote for over her I think, in the world of resculpt or new.

But, I don't care about all the Padme's a lot of people are voting for too either...  Or Senators, or whatever.  I like those figures when I get them though, they're neat usually (well, sometimes), but they just don't tickle my pickle much I guess...  Kinda like the push for certain holographic figures, or spirit figures or something.  Neat when you get some of them, but I could also live without them in the line while other stuff just gets me revved up when I see it.  I suppose I'm one of the only guys to see an A-Wing Pilot and go nuts for it though, or to see Baron Fel and get giddy at the thought of the new set he's in.

I agree wanting new figures before resculpts, but if a resculpt must be done then they should be of major characters like Obi-Wan or Qui-Gon. As Reid posted, Zam wasn't a major character, maybe third-tier at best and she's had 2 figures done (yes, they're not the best, but still they are made). Padme is a major character and she has been slighted in her scene-specific attires (which is many... and I admit you can't have 50 different Padmes out in a year). Most Padme's don't even need major artic, just beautifully sculpted gowns. I guess I'm a big Padme fan.  ;D

But if I had the choice of SA Zam or Jango vs Willrow, Yarna or Woklings (and I'm not a huge Ewok fan), I'd go for the later ones.

So how big is the list that gets presented to Hasbro at Comic Con?  10 figures?
