Most Wanted Resculpts?
« on: October 26, 2007, 01:13 PM »
I know we've discussed resculpts previously on the forums, but I didn't see a thread here in the TAC thread, so I figured it has been a little while.  After the figures we have gotten this year (and the glimpse into 2008), which figures would you still want to see resculpted.  Personally, it does seem to me that almost every figures from the POTF2 era could stand an upgrade.  Not that there aren't nice figures from then, but we've been surprised before how much sculpt (or articulation/etc.) can be improved.  TPM probably goes along the same lines, and could stand a few upgrades.  They have been covering the main characters and army builders in the VTSC lines pretty well, but there are still some left - and a number of supporting characters.  A few, off the top of my head, that I wouldn't mind seeing:

Main Characters
Bespin Han Solo (SA)
Hoth Luke Skywalker (SA)
Tatooine Luke Skywalker (I know, crazy, but it still doesn't seem like we have a "perfect" one - SA)
Jedi Luke Skywalker (This year's is pretty good, but could still be improved on a bit)
TPM Obi-Wan Kenobi
AOTC Obi-Wan Kenobi (although the comic pack one is nice for that version)
TPM Padme (any of them really)
AOTC C-3PO
ROTS General Grievous (taller, although I think we'll see one in the Clone Wars line)

Supporting Characters
Wicket
Logray
Admiral Ackbar
Ponda Baba
Nien Nunb
Zuckuss
Ugnaughts
Ree-Yees
Prune Face
Hoth Rebel Soldier (SA)
Rebel Fleet Trooper (SA)
Endor Rebel Soldier (SA)

There are many others, but just a few off the top of my head to get things started.  Something else that crossed my mind with this list, but I wouldn't mind seeing them "re-cast" the OTC Yoda into a "Spirit Of" figure to go along with the OTC Obi-Wan and the upcoming TAC Anakin (although a Shaw head would be nice).  Anyways, any other resculpts you'd like to see?

Uncle Owen needs a resculpt in the worst way.  However, old man figures without lightsabers probably will not get released anytime soon.

He's a boring figure anyway.  I think we need to get a halfway decent Hoth Rebel Soldier, especially with all the Hoth Rebel Officers that have come out lately.

Honestly I think the Rots #41 clone needs a resculpt. The armor is way to thick on his thighs making it impossible to make him sit without slightly pulling the leg out of its peg.
 I also think Zam needs a resculpt,Hoth Rebel, Endor Rebel, Tantive rebel, and Hoth Luke.

Maybe what they can do is use the existing sculpt for most of the body, but incorporate ball jointed hips.  I've had the same problem happen with the peg.

My list for resculpts are:

- Rebel Fleet Trooper
- Emperor Palpatine
- Grand Moff Tarkin
- Gamorrean Guard
- Bespin Guard
- C3PO (really want to see him get CZ droid articulation)

Ackbar and Nien Nunb are right at the top of the list for me.



I want Ackbar to get the VTSC treatment!

Please, dear God no. The ROTS one is good enough. Also, isn't TSC Sun Fac already a decent stand in for a Geonosian grunt?

As for my most wanted...

AT-ST Driver
Sim Aloo
Obi-Wan Kenobi (ANH)
Rebel Fleet Trooper
Hoth Rebel Trooper
Ackbar
Nien Nunb

Lotsa love for Hoth Rebel Soldier.  Come on Hasbro, help us out!   ;)

Blue Snaggletooth (don't bother repacking the old one, it's garbage, just do a new one).
Dr Evazan
Ponda Baba (c'mon Hasbro, my cantina needs respectable versions of these first 3 figures!)
SA Hoth Rebel Soldier
SA Endor Rebel Soldier
Palpatine ROTJ

I'd like a new Uncle Owen as well, but like Broem said, I won't be holding my breath.
