Wedge was at #13...blame that on people splitting votes for Snowspeeder Pilot votes off for Hobbie, Dak, Wes etc

I myself went 6/10 so I'm pretty happy...I would like EE or Diamond ask for Imperial Officer and X-Wing/Snowspeeder Pilot Box Set Exclusives...that way you knock out 3-4 pretty easy resculpts and get figures out for things that would either be Vehicle Exclusives or no shot in hell being carded...

Imperial Officers

New Piett
Ozzel
Vader
Needa
Bridge Tech

Snowspeeder Pilots

Luke
Wedge
Dak
Hobbie
Wes Janson
Hoth Leia

I really like the idea of both of these sets - do a couple of minor tweaks to the VTSC X-Wing Luke and update the boots on Zev and crank out a Hoth briefing set - throw a new head on the Major Derlin body too...  There were a couple of those officers at that briefing as well.

As far as Imperial officers - given that we just had the DS briefing pack, it would be hard to imagine them going back to the same well again.  However, an ESB officer pack would be nice with all the Star Destroyer commanders, and then a couple of technicians, etc.  All repaints and rehashes.

X-Wing pilots from Yavin, Pilots from Endor, R5 repaints (to follow on the recent Astromech sets), there's a Million ways they could go on this front now.

I was thinking the same thing, Scott... They could do that with Red and Gold Squadrons... get some new X and Y-wing pilots, maybe some astromechs or fuelers... or background Jedi that fought on Geonosis... the possibilities are almost limitless.

7/10 for me.  Those ideas for sets sound awesome, but I'd hope the Snowspeeder pilot box set would be based on a SA sculpt.  I'd hate to see another box like the DS Briefing Imps with just about 5 points of articulation?  You know once they get the headsculpt, they'll later go back and re-articulate and get the rankings ensignias right, forcing all of us to buy each again on a later single card release.

I hit 6 out of 10.  I recently made a Snowspeeder Luke from a VTSC and some other parts, but I'd gladly take a new one!

Nice looking customs - illustrates my point exactly as to how they can do a Snowspeeder Luke in the short term - Although think they need to use the arms from the upcoming Yavin IV Luke too - as there is the same ridged pattern running down the shoulder and sleeve.

Good Work!
