Defender Wishlists 2007: The Phantom Menace
« on: May 7, 2007, 12:16 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 first Prequel Episode I:The Phantom Menace is now up.   If you need help coming up with names check out the Official Sites Databank:  Episode I.  Have fun and thanks for sending in your lists (remember to limit it to ten)!

Last Year's Results!

I don't think I got a single figure from my list last year, so here it is again...

The Phantom Menace

1.  Ben Quadrinaros (Podracer Pilot) w/Power Droid
2.  Mawhonic (Podracer Pilot) w/toolbox & tools
3.  Ratts Tyerell (Podracer Pilot) w/PK-4 Droid
4.  Queen Amidala (Return to Naboo)
5.  Queen Amidala (PreSenate)
6.  Toonbuck Toora (Galactic Senator)
7.  Tey How (Neimoidian Controller)
8.  Super-Articulated Qui-Gon Jinn (Jedi Master) w/Saber, Hilt, Commlink, Poncho
9.  Super-Articulated Obi-Wan Kenobi (Jedi Knight) w/Saber, Hilt, Commlink
10. Kitster & Wald 2-pack

I guess Qui-Gon is rumored, but I'm leaving him on my list because I don't want to have to dig up another TPM character...   :P

1. SA Obi-Wan Kenobi
2. SA Naboo Soldier
3. SA Captain Panaka
4. SA Jar Jar Binks
5. Queen Amidala (Pre-Senate)
6. Queen Amidala (Post-Senate)
7. Kitster/Wald 2 pack
8. SA Gungan Soldier
9. SA Padme Amidala (Battle of Theed)
10. SA Battle Droid/ROTS Battle Droid made with good plastic

Yeah, number 10 is rumored, but what we're getting is crap. I want a Battle Droid that can hold a blaster with both hands AND be able to stand on its own.

1.  Super-Articulated Qui-Gon Jinn
2.  Super-Articulated Obi-Wan Kenobi
3.  Ben Quadrinaros (Podracer Pilot)
4.  Queen Amidala (PreSenate)
5.  Queen Amidala (Return to Naboo)
6.  Mawhonic (Podracer Pilot)
7.  Ratts Tyerell (Podracer Pilot)
8.  Toonbuck Toora (Galactic Senator)
9.  Tey How (Neimoidian Controller)
10. Kitster & Wald 2-pack

Like Jeff said, Qui-Gon is rumored, but I think that is the figure I want above all others from TPM, so I'm going to leave it on the list until we get more confirmation.  Really, if we got all-new SA versions of Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan, then its basically just Amidalas and Podracers.  I got to the point recently where I kind of stopped picking up figures from TPM for the most part (until we see those SA Jedis), but now I'm starting to think about picking up the few I skipped from the EnBoo wave now.  We'll see.  Aside from this list, I can't think of a whole lot of others that I would necessarily want.  Granted, some of the TPM figures look a little dated now, so we could always see resculpts, but there is a lot of other stuff I'd want before that happened.

1) Super Articulated Qui-Gon Jinn
2) Super Articulated Queen Amedala (Purple Battle dress)
3) Battle Droid with a decent sculpt that can stand up, yet also move.
4) Super Articulated Obi-Wan
5) SA Captain Panaka
6) Queen Amidala (Pre-Senate)
7) Queen Amidala (Post-Senate)
8) SA Naboo Royal Guard

Again I don't really care so much about this movie. Only the first two figures on my list I really have any desire to get. I know that the Q-G is rumored, but with nothing yet concrete, I would like to make it clear to hasbro that this is my #1 choice for an Ep1 figure.

1 ) Naboo Soldier Resculpt...  SA resculpt of the guys in yellow w/brown leather armor
2 ) Naboo Royal Guard Resculpt...  SA resculpt of the guys in red padded armor suits and helmets
3 ) Capt. Panaka/Security Resculpt...  SA Captain Panaka with a generic head variant
4 ) Obi-Wan Kenobi...  SA resculpt w/cloth cloak
5 ) Rum Sleg...  I agree with others, he's freaky and I want one of him
6 ) Cleg Holdfast...  I'm not a huge podracer fan but that guy's pretty cool.
7 ) Amidala Naboo...  SA resculpt of Amidala in her purple battle outfit from the end, maybe a blonde variant?
8 ) Senate Guard...  Re-use the E3 Guard sculpt, give him a removable helmet.  I'm happy as a clam.
9 ) Kitster & Wald...  I'd take 'em.
10) Toonbuck Toora...  I'm at this point going for freaky alien designs over anything else.

I'm surprised more people don't want more resculpts though.  There's some ****** figures in the E1 line, namely every army builder really.  It's sad when the Naboo Dude from TSC last year made for the best army builder of the E1 film.  I mean, yikes...

From last year's post:
1.   R2-A6 - I know EE put it out with their exclusive 10 pack, but $80 is a lot to throw down at one time just to get it.
2.   Tey How (Neimoidian Controller)
3.   Amidala Return to Naboo
4.   Amidala Pre-Senate
5.   Amidala Post-Senate
6.   Daultay Dofine
7.   SA Naboo Soldier...  (Jesse's idea)  Head variants with a removable hat.
8.   SA Naboo Royal Security...  with head variants.
9.   SA Obi-Wan
10. SA Qui-Gon.

Surprisingly, there are still several PM figures I want a Wald / Kittster two pack, Mawhonic w/ Salvage Droid,  Quadrinaros/Ratts Tyrell 2 pack, SA Generic Naboo Pilot... (w/  trench coat & removable helmet,  SA Naboo Security Captain with head variants, and Twi'lek Masseuse just to start.

Well, with some help, I was able to get the EE 10-pack for less than $80, so I no longer need R2-A6.  And surprisingly to me, I'm dropping all votes for Amidala outfits, though I would buy them in a second if and when they finally come out, so without further ado,

1.   SA Qui-Gon: rumored or not, he makes the list until they get him right... and work on that face/head sculpt!!
2.   SA Obi-Wan.
3.   SA Naboo Soldier...  (Jesse's idea)  Head variants with a removable hat.
4.   SA Naboo Royal Security...  with head variants.
5.   Naboo Royal Guard Resculpt...  SA resculpt of the guys in red (original had a goatee).
6.   Ben Quadrinaros w/ some kind of droid.
7.   Clegg Holdfast.
8.   Kitster & Wald... very low on the want list, but I'd buy them as a 2pack.
9.   Tey How (Neimoidian Controller)
10.  Daultay Dofine
