It's about friggin time they updated this figure. The green pigs are some of the most iconic aliens in the Saga. I knew they have that Target Rancor bendy hands for a reason....to hold a robust fat green pig!!!

Good now I can ditch my OTC ones.

This thread is as good a place as any to put this since it involves rampant speculation and reading into things that may or may not be there...

In the most recent Q&A Session @ HH, Hasbro passed along a list of their "fan choice" figures.

In no particular order:
Snoova (resculpt)
the actual "Sith" species
Mandalorian Neo Crusader
Bastila Shan
Joe Johnston concept Imperial Guard
Phase 2 Dark Trooper (2 votes so technically the #1 choice here)
Guri
Weequay Skiff Master
Widdle & Oochee 2-pack
Yuuzhan Vong (more slender sculpt)
Luke in Emperor Guard disguise (resculpt)
super-articulated Rancor with elbows and knees (hey, that's not eligible!)
Nera Dantels
super-articulated AT-ST driver
Bettybot
female Stormtrooper from Legacy 0
Jaxxon
Ponda Baba
Dr. Evazon
Aqualish Technician (Clone Wars)
Nelvaan Warrior (mutated - he'd be HUGE!)
Shado Vao.


What makes the list even more interesting to me is that a few figures off their "wishlist" were confirmed as coming "eventually" in past Q&As (Ponda, Evazon) and a few more were confirmed by JTA's Q&A this week - AT-ST Driver and Widdle & Oochee. 

It makes you wonder how many of the others on the list are already planned for '10/'11.  Time for some speculation perhaps?   ;)

Hmm, from their list I'd like to see the following:
Bastila Shan
Joe Johnston concept Imperial Guard
Phase 2 Dark Trooper (2 votes so technically the #1 choice here)
Guri
Widdle & Oochee 2-pack
Nera Dantels (OK, but I did have to WIKI her to see who she was)
super-articulated AT-ST driver
Bettybot (Absolutely!)
female Stormtrooper from Legacy 0
Jaxxon
Dr. Evazon


Most notable of those are Bastila Shan (the JD winner in the last spot of the fan choice poll); Guri (but which outfit, I"m partial to the yellowish/purple version); Bettybot (there is even three deco versions of this, so easy money on a repaint for Hasbro); Jaxxon. not the cartoony version of him, rather the realistic version.

I'm just a humble collector trying to make his way through the universe...of toy aisles.

It's always nice to see what the guys behind the scenes are thinking.  8)

I'd definitely grab a Weequay and Jaxxon (in addition to the so-damn-glad-to-be-confirmed Ponda Baba and Dr Evazan).

Yeah. Gives me hope for some badly need figures sooner than later.

I have been wanting the Skiffmaster Weequay for years.  This gives me a glimmer of hope for it.

I have a feeling that collectors aren't the only ones itching for a Shado Vao ... Hasbro wants him too!

Over on RS Stan has said he has heard Bespin Han has been delayed to 2011 - If true ,and going by the recent Hasbro Qand A,  it wiil instead be a good year for Bom Vimdin fans.

Interesting.

Stan's track record is about as good as yours and mine for inside knowledge and prediction.

If that is true, I'll really be disappointed.  I mean we know that the new Han Bespin is coming eventually, but it seems like it keeps getting rumored/pushed back each year, and the 30th Anniv. of ESB would be a perfect time to release him.  It is probably my most wanted remake, as nice as the POTJ figure is.

It does seem strange NOT to release Bespin Han next year. Having said that , the Empire pool of figures IS drying up and they will need a lynch pin figure for a 2011 wave -so you never know!

Indeed.  If you throw enough crap at a wall, some of it is bound to stick.

For those looking for a decent Han Bespin to hold you over you can do the following.  Although not 100% accuarate it still looks pretty sweet.  Use the Endor Ultimate Battle Pack Han (I believe it is this one, although I did this a while back and it could be a different Han), Head Swap and use the soft goods from the POTF2 Leia Collection Han Bespin. After seeing, I believe that soft goods is definitely the way to go when they update. Throw a mynock mask and it is pretty close.
