McQuarrie 2009?
« on: February 8, 2008, 10:23 PM »
I had some time tonght to scan up some images of characters that could be done in a future McQuarrie line.   Most are obvious, but I think a new Luke or two would be fine, since the first one never hit the pegs.  I really loved the McQ figures this year, and I hope that Hasbo willl continue them.  Any ideas for others are welcome.

I couldn't find any pics, but there was a pretty unique McQuarrie Emperor concept.

There's also the cantina jellyfish thing whose name escapes me.

Leia and Lando look pretty awful IMO.  I have no idea - but were there concepts for every single character in SW without a green light??

Most of the charcater designs had a few different paths they went down before they got the greelight.  The Jawas and the Sandpeople look exactly like McQuarries first drawings.

I really liked the McQuarrie line - and I'll happily buy any OT concepts that Hasbro will make.

That unmasked Vader concept kinda looks like Jason from the first Friday The 13th movie.

Yeah, I've really gotten to love the McQ figures after having promised myself not to buy them  ::).  I could definitely go for that Sandtrooper for one.

Me too.  I'd take three of 'em in a heartbeat.  A concept Emperor figure would be cool, too.

The Hoth Rebel and Rebel Pilot would be my top wants...  Loved the Hoth Rebels, however I preferred a different version that, more closely resembled the film outfit, but ultimately was noticeably different.

Maybe not in '09, but in 2010 for the ESB anniversary.

Yeah, I am burnt out on trying to find all those McQuarries.  I would be fine if they never made another really.  But I know if they make them I would be all interested again and buy some.  Or all.

What's the story with that "Cos Dashit" image above?  That's an altered McQuarrie painting.  That's not how the painting was published in 1983.

if I am correct that pic of the emperor is actually from a SW sticker book. i have two of them in my room with that painting on the last page or something like that.

That Gammorean Guard is the coolest idea so far, I hadn't seen that before.
