Defender Wishlists 2007: The Empire Strikes Back
« on: March 5, 2007, 10:26 AM »


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 2006, I thought it would be a good time to revisit those lists. Here's how it works: You send your Wish List for 10[/i] 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.  Fan favorite The Empire Strikes Back is currently on deck.   If you need help coming up with names check out the Official Sites Databank:  Episode V.  Have fun and thanks for sending in your lists (remember to limit it to ten)!

I'm asuming Smuggler Lando & Hoth Rebel are coming this year, if not we're all ******.
1. Willrow Hood, MUST COME WITH ICE CREAM MACHINE & possibly a cone
2. Snowspeeder Pilot Luke Skywalker
3. Rebel Hoth Trooper (trench)
4. Medical Fatigues Luke Skywalker
5. Medical Fatigues Leia Organa
6. Bespin Han Solo
7. Captain Needa
8. 4-LOM (Preferably in Vintage packaging)
9. Zuckuss (Preferably in Vintage packaging)
10. Snow Sppeder Pilot Wedge Antilles
All SA & soft goods on figures that need it, mainly Captain Needa.

1. Han Bespin (SA/Vintage)*
2. Rebel Soldier - Hoth Battle Gear ** (For sake of clarity - this is the trench trooper, not a hanger trooper)
3. Luke - Snowspeeder Pilot
4. Admiral Piett
5. Luke - Medical Frigate
6. Leia - Medical Frigate
7. Zuckuss
8. Probe Droid (NEW sculpt) ***
9. Luke - Hoth (SA/Vintage)
10. R5-M2
11. Original (Mustached) Bespin Guard (i.e. vintage #1)
12. Original (Black) Bespin Guard (i.e. vintage #2)

* This assumes that the Torture rack version coming this year WILL NOT fill the SA Han Bespin requirement for the year - If we're NOT counting that in this year's vote, then everything moves up one spot and then #10 would be:

** This assumes that we're NOT getting a new SA Hoth Rebel Soldier, and that the two figures that are coming are the McQuarrie cameo and then the McQuarrie "concept" trooper.  If we are, then he gets struck from the list.

#'s 11 & 12 are included only IF #1 and #2 are not included in this year's vote.

*** This assumes it's even a possibility for the basic line - although I think we need to campaign for one in SOME line - we've never had one that's even close to accurate, and with the new molding capabilities, I expect we could get an outstanding probe droid - just suspend it on a clear stand, so that the legs can be accurately portrayed.

And finally:

PUH-LEEEEZE don't vote for:

22.Treva Horme
22.Utris M'Toc
23.Wiorkettle

These are all Decipher photo-shops, and no matter how hard I look, I cannot find them in the films - and further more, Utris looks like an escapee from that other major Sci-Fi franchise (you know, the randome nose/forehead ridge of the week?)

Much more limited choices for Empire than for the other five!

Fair enough - will have to slow down the DVD to see if I can catch him - just watched that sequence the other night on HBO, and didn't notice him.  Only saw ICMG come running by...

I'm kind of going on the assumption that the Torture Rack Han will be somewhat satisfactory towards a SA Bespin Han, but in any case, this film is a real case of the obvious:
           
            Toyrn Farr
   Luke Snowspeeder Pilot
   Wedge Snowspeeder Pilot
   Rebel Snowspeeder Pilot w/ trendy flying cap (Hobbie, Jansen, Dack...)
   R5-M2   
             Luke Medical Frigate
   Leia Medical Frigate
   Hoth Rebel Soldier - Battle Gear (SA)
   Hoth Luke (SA)
   Zuckuss (SA)

1)  SA Hoth Rebel Trooper (White Uniform, Infantry Grunt) Resculpt
2)  Hoth Rebel Technician w/tools
3)  Wilrow Hood w/ice cream maker
4)  Hoth Leia Resculpt
5)  Hoth Luke Resculpt (damaged and undamaged heads)
6)  Snowspeeder Luke
7)  Dak (Generic Hoth Rebel Pilot)
8 ) Bespin Guard Resculpt
9)  Bespin Human Citizen (Pick anyone Scott) w/brief case/computer accessory
10) Toryn Farr w/Ion Control Console

Pretty much goes without saying that I'd like any of these to be super articulated, removable brain buckets/hats, lots of gear.

02.  Hoth Rebel Soldier (SA Resculpt)
03.  Han Solo in Bespin Fatigues (SA Resculpt)
04.  Zuckuss (SA Resculpt)
05.  Admiral Piett (SA Resculpt)
06.  Bespin Security Guard (with switchable heads and hands)
07.  Willrow Hood
08.  Boba Fett (VTSC figure in ESB colors with removable helmet)
09.  Princess Leia Organa (Medical Frigate)
10.  2-1B Medical Droid (Resculpt which can then be repainted into ROTS version) :)
