Defender Wishlists 2007: A New Hope
« on: February 12, 2007, 03:47 PM »


For the last couple of years we ran an informal poll with your 10 most wanted characters from the current Star Wars Films.  Continuing the tradition and trying to finish up before Comic Con 2007, I thought it would be a good time to revisit those lists. Here's how it works: You send your Wish List for 10 3 3/4" Figures to me or post them here, be it new figures, resculpts or even re-releases and I'll tally the votes.  After four weeks of list taking I'll publish the results and we will move on to the next movie.  The Original Star Wars, to most people, Episode IV: A New Hope is now up.   If you need help coming up with names check out the Official Sites Databank:  Episode IV.  Have fun and thanks for sending in your lists (remember to limit it to ten)!

Previous Top 10 List (7 for 10)




#01 Han Solo (Stormtrooper Disguise) CONFIRMED 2007
#02 Luke Skywalker (Stormtrooper Disguise) CONFIRMED 2007
#03 Grand Moff Tarkin (Resculpt) CONFIRMED 2007

Here's my updated list:

1. General Tagge - Finally given to us in the Death Star Briefing set.

   Uncle Owen resculpt.  Time to give this man his due.

2. Colonel Yularen - Done.

   Dr. Evazan resculpt.  The previous version was terrible (and even worse when retooled with it's awkward bending knees.  Either resculpt it Hasbro or don't waste our freakin' time).

3. CZ-3 - CZ-4 will do just fine for my Tatooine display.
 
   Ponda Baba resculpt.  Hasbro, the 2006 version of Momaw Nadon (Hammerhead) was nice with it's improved sculpt and paint, but let's so you do even better with Walrusman by improving his incredibly limited articulation as well.

4. Tonnika Sisters - The cantina is still one of my favourite scenes of all time, so I'd love to see these "essential" background characters.

5. Bom Vimdin - Same as above.

6. Red Leader - Just use the Gold Leader (Dutch Vander) body since they're both quite tall and give him a new head and I'm happy.

7. SA Rebel Trooper - SA.  Nothing less.

8. SA Death Star Gunner - 2006.

   Wioslea - more background goodness for the Cantina.

9. SA Luke Stormtrooper - I guess the Comic Packs will do.

   Silver Death Star Droid.

10. SA Han Stormtrooper - I guess the Comic Packs will do.

   Saurin - either one is fine.



-edited to include characters only from ANH.  ::)
