Concept Figure Wishlist Thread
« on: September 2, 2007, 11:11 AM »
So, all thirteen of the McQuarrie concept figures for 2007 have been revealed, but I still feel that there are around five-ish that still need to be made, if Hasbro keeps doing these.

1) Concept Shaak Ti
2) Concept Emperor
3) Concept Lando Calrissian
4) Concept Hoth Rebel Trooper
5) Concept Alta Ranga (Arena Jedi)

I'll provide pictures later for Shaak Ti and Alta Ranga, for those of you who don't know what they look like.

Am I missing any? Which concept figures would you like to see?

To me the prequal concepts didn't compare to the OT's work...  My choices would be:

-Concept Palpatine
-Concept Lando
-Concept HOTH Rebel Trooper
-Concept Tatooine Gunfight 2-Pack (iconic art there)
-Concept Rebel Pilot
-Concept TIE Pilot
-Concept Tarkin

I think the iconic characters need hashed out completely...  Such as Tarkin, Lando, and Palpatine.  The iconic army builders next.  The Hoth Rebel is just a bitchin' design in general and looks great, much like the Hoth Stormtrooper's look.  The Tatooine Gunfight is my favorite piece of McQuarrie's art though because it set a lot of the mood of Tatooine (and even got filmed in some fashion, but cut from the movie). 

The Pilots then just need made to round up the army builders to me...  I love the Rebel pilot design and wanted the TIE Pilot as his counterpart is all.

Great ideas, guys. I don't know how I forgot about the Neimoidian and Jar Jar concepts.

I also would like the Geonosian Hatchling concept, maybe as a two-pack with a concept Geonosian Warrior.  :)

Tarkin seems like a boring concept figure to me.

I can only think of one figure I'd honestly like to get, although it's more of a three pack: Derek Thompson's "Droid General" (Art of ROTS, page 68, bottom right corner).  It's essentially Grievous as a young alien (almost Thrawn-esque) child in a hover chair, flanked by two IG-88-style assassin droids.  Very creepy, but very cool looking. :)

I'd like the concept line to end, but I must admit I've wanted to see a figure of this guy, as an EU alien or whatever, for years.

Oh, yeah, concept Lando. That would be a good one. Though, perhaps I can make my own with the bespin Leia body. ;)

i was totally into the concept line before they sprung all those exclusives on us as well as that lame ass obi-wan concept figure with yoda..personally i would've been OK with paying a buttload for concept Yoda sans crappy kenobi concept..then a got a closer look at that Vader figure and almost barfed. at this point they'd haft to be in a lot on ebay for me to consider it....

but i would actually really like a remake of the obi-wan kenobi episode 1 concept figure....dubbed Jedi training gear in the potj line...or at least maybe some of the concept ships made to scale for once...

I agree that the concepts should stay in the basic line from now on, but I doubt that'll be the case seeing the popularity of them.

I forgot to add some PT concepts, but unfortunately I don't have the Art of (prequel movie name) books on hand.
