Defender Wish Lists: Episode VI: Return of the Jedi
« on: June 20, 2003, 02:02 PM »


In a continuation of previous Defender Wish Lists, we move along to the final movie of the Original Trilogy: Return of the Jedi.  Fuzzy little teddy bears, gigantic gangster slugs and a plethora of aliens dot this movie and make it full of undone favorites.   There are some badly needed resculpts as well.   Feel free to send in your lists via e-mail: spearson@jedidefender.com or post them here.

If you need help coming up with names check out the Official Sites Databank:   Episode VI.  Also check out Red 6 for even more great charcters (and petition supporters) :P

Have fun and thanks for sending in your lists (remember to limit it to ten)!

Ok, #1 is the most important one.  Everything else is inconsequential as long as #1 is made.  The rest of picks reflect my love for freaky deaky aliens and droids.

1.  Jabba the Hutt (no brainer and I predict the #1 wish by a long shot)
2. Ak-Rev / Rappertunie
3.  Umpaz Stay (w/ #2 to have a full band)
4.  Hermi Odle
5.  J'Quille the Whiphid
6.  BG-J38
7.  R2-D2 w/ serving tray
8.  Tanus Spijek the Elom
9 and 10.  (2) two packs of the remaining vintage Ewoks not yet made: Chief Chirpa, Romba, Lumat and Warok.  Package them any way you want Hasbro, just make them.
Common sense isn't so common

3. ReeYees re-sculpt

Since when was Doallyn ever on one of the Skiffs?  Is that really true Brad, and if so, do you have a picture?  Just curious what the difference was for him, and why I've never heard mention of him on there...

Also, why don't you like the previous Ree-Yees figure?  I thought he turned out pretty spiffy myself, and haven't heard any resculpt demands on him before.  I'd go for a resculpt of the Ishi Tib character in Palace outfit first, since Hasbro stupidly made their version from the Rebel Briefing scene instead...   ::)

We've had this discussion at RS before



That is clearly at the front of the skiff the Sarge...

The dude getting pushed down the steps in the palace has always also been known as the Sarge as well.  

They appear to have different costumes (lighter and darker) which is what Brad is pointing out

Confusion sets in when Bane Malar comes along, as far as I know he never made it to screen and may have been just a test shot of Sarge's costume

Well I'll be damned.  You're certainly correct there Brad!  Thanks for the info Scott.  Definitely need this fella now for our Skiff dioramas, if nothing else!  I had no idea...  I did of course realize that he was the dude getting tossed down the stairs by Chewie like a rag doll though!   ;)  Cool, learn something new every day...  or perhaps every couple months in my case...   :P

ROTJ... There is lots to choose from.

My Return of the Jedi figure wishlist: Not in any order.
1. Jabba the Hutt - Like like skin. Comes with Dias, two frogs, and pipe bowl.
2. General Madine - with Staff and Death Star Holo.
3. Yarna d'al' Gargan - They have a vintage proto, why not make her now?
4. Ewoks: Chief Chirpa, Lumat, Romba, Warok, generic. We need Ewoks.
5. Hermi Odle - They made Ephont, why not him as well.
6. Bubo (Dog Alien)- with chain and comes with that thing that eats and burps outside the palace.
7. ReeYees - Resculpt.
8. Laei as Boush - Resculpt
9. The other members of Jabba's Band[Rappertunie, Ak-Rev, Umpaz Stay].(Box Set)
10. Luke as Hologram

For those of you looking for me. I am now at www.sandtroopers.com

I like all of the suggestions above, here's a few I would like to see:

1. Jabba the Hutt (2004?)
2. General Madine (rumored?)
3. Han Solo Endor (I know some people probably cringe reading this, but it was always my favorite vintage figure as a kid, and I'd really like to see a really good one made, Endor Raid and the POTF2 versions are alright, but aren't quite perfect)
4. Chief Chirpa/Lumat (Two pack Idea OCB had is fine by me!)
5. Romba/Warok (ditto #4)
6. Hermi Odle w/ Bubo (Jabba's Aliens always cool)
7. Skiff Nikto (ditto)
8. Endor Luke and/or Leia (I'd like to see either one of these, I think the POTF2 ones can be greatly improved upon, but again, I'm all about getting new figures first for those of you who hate resculpts...I'd just like to see what the sculptors and technology can do now a days to improve on some of these main characters too)
9. Lando Skiff Disguise (another redo, but I would like to see it done eventually)
10. Bib Fortuna Redo (I don't have the POTF2 one, but it doesn't look too pretty to me ) :P

OK, I'll go with mine here now... (And in no particular order)

1) EDIT: I'm dumping the 2nd Rancor Keeper for Hermi Odle...  He's so cool cuz he drools.  He's only behind Trandoshans in overall sex appeal, cuz the ladies truly love da Trandoshans...  Hermi's nice though, and eats apples.

2) Sgt. Doalynn (and if the uniforms are similar, I'd like to see a variant where one is the black uniform deco, and the other is the cream with a stripe uniform deco)

3) Dresellian Commando (No Eyepatch)

4) Rebel Crewman (Brown uniforms, shortbrimmed hats withi yellow emblem)

5) A-Wing Pilot with Removeable Helmet (Human)

6) B-Wing PIlot with Removeable Helmet (Human)

7) Han Solo, Endor (With removeable trench coat, good articulation, and NO STUPID POSE or ACTION FEATURE)

8 ) Imperial Officer ( multiple head variants that include Moff Jerjerrod, Admiral Piett, and a non-descript officer...  Also multiple color variants which include grey and black uniforms, and removeable hats...  An ultimate army builder).

9) Ewok Army Builder...  (Teebo's body packed with multiple hood and weapon variations...  Each body a different color with some striped/multi-colored Ewoks also.  Weapons include stone axe, spear, and bow/arrow sets)

10) Lando General Pilot resculpt (with cloth cape, good poseability, NO stupid action pose, and a functioning holster)

Wow, not a single Jabba's Palace alien Jesse?  Not even our favorite fat, 6 breasted dancin' machine Yarna D'al Gargan or that disgusting slob Hermi?  No droids?  No Madine?  Maybe I should just submit my questions here as my list, huh?   :D
