Unlike other johnny come latelies, this is our 5th year of doing Wish Lists...I just found our 2003 ANH Results...

Big deal.  I've been doing my own personal wishlists in my head every year since1978.  Top that.

Hasbro confirmed Needa.

I don't remember that.  Is this true?  If so, I'll have to update the list I just submitted.  ???

I don't remember Needa being confirmed anywhere, Hasbro answered about him last year if a remember and said he'll probably come soon but nothing certain

He was 'confirmed' here...


4/13/07

Q. Okay, I love all the Imperial officers that you have been producing over the last few years. But I still have an empty slot in my Empire Strikes Back collection for the ill fated Captain Needa. Any sense on when I might be able to fill that spot with an action figure?

A. We can't tell you for certain when he will come out, but it's a good bet that in the next two years you will have him in 3-3/4" format.



I'm thinking he's probably coming in the ESB wave in 2009.

Empire results are here...lots of resculpts :)

There were a TON of wished for characters from last years' list that were made or coming in 2007/2008:

Luke Skywalker (Snowspeeder)  I know people still want another but it still counted
Willrow Hood (Finally)
R5-M2
Princess Leia (Hoth) Coming in the Comic Pack
Hobbie (X-Wing Gear) I still would like a Snowspeeder Hobbie
Wes Janson
Lando Smuggler
4-LOM
2-1B
Boba Fett (ESB Deco)
Darth Vader (Hologram)
Zev Senesca
General McQuarrie
Han Solo (Toture Rack)
Kesin Ommis

And probably more, anyway, it has a big impact on the list this year as there were LOTS more votes for resculpts.  After Needa (who was #11) the next 5 were also resculpt requests

Man it looks strange not to have ICMG in the top-ten for ESB this year...  :)

10)  Noghri Warrior (Thrawn Trilogy)...  (Sorry Jason, I did dump Corran Horn)  I've always wanted one of these guys and so he's getting into the list.

This is because I forgot to vote for the RFT isn't it? That's it, you're off the Xmas card list. >:(

Oh wait right I don't have one, haha.  ;D No worries JJ, the Noghri is a solid pick I can't imagine why we haven't gotten one yet.

Sim Aloo needs more votes! He is a vintage figure that really needs to be redone.

I'm hoping Zam Wessell does well...she is my most wanted resculpt at this point. As far as never before made characters go, Ackmena is at the top of my list. After thirty years, I think we're at a point where the Holiday Special really deserves some attention. Give her a Commtech chip too, Hasbro. "I'll be waiting."

Although she may not be my most wanted resculpt I too hope Wessell will do well in the polls. Mostly because I have her speeder and her other figures wont fit in them. Plus I loved her character in the comics and Bounty Hunter game. Darn it Hasblow make us a better Zam! ::)
