I could do without a couple of them personally but the list isn't too bad...  Obi-Wan and R5 are, I think, the only choices I got that made the cut.  Tey How is just Lushros Dofine with funky goggles so I'm not too jazzed on that one, but I guess he is sort of an army builder.  Then again, so was Dofine.

Anyway, man, I hope they get to Obi-Wan here eventually.  That's one bad set of figures from our past that need a definitive update.

5 of 10, not bad. There are some blatantly obvious figures that Hasbro could do here that I wouldn't think would be expensive for them: Tey How, Mawhonic, Ratts Tyerell, R5-A7 and probably some others, too, but I'll bid my time.

I think if they really try, they can make a Tey How figure exciting. Give her soft goods and articulation so she can sit in her chair and maybe throw in a PK Droid, and that would make an interesting figure.

2/10 for me (Twi'Lek twins and Kister/Wald). I would've liked to see Rum Sleg make the list again this time. I also really want Sei Taria to be made one day, but that' a long shot because I'm the only one who voted for her.  :-\

Sweet, Jabba's R5 made the cut now. :)

Good call on that Scott.
