ICMG, Yarna...now what?
« on: July 5, 2008, 02:46 PM »
I wasn't quite sure where to put this, so hopefully this will be okay here. I was just thinking about how many new figures Hasbro has given us just in the last two years, of characters collectors have been asking for for ages. ICMG, Yarna, CZ-4, Wulf Yularen, Academy Biggs, etc...So I was wondering...who are we as collectors gonna stand behind now, and possibly wait years and years to finally see made? Sure, that's what the wishlist poll is for, but ICMG and Yarna in particular just seemed to have a huge huge following of epic proportions.

Basically, can there ever be another 'ICMG?' Will there ever be? And if so, who?

I dunno, I've just really been thinking about this, especially now that it sounds like another official Fan's Choice Contest is on its way. Your thoughts?

The answer is obvious - A generic Dresselian rebel.

Dang, there's still so many choices.  I'd probably endorse an obscure cantina character, like Yerka Mig or Garouf Lafoe.

Wow.  I didn't know Kevin Costner was in Star Wars.

ROTS Nute and Rune, which should've been made years ago.

This thread is proof that I don't think there will be another large scale movement like Yarna or ICMG had...with maybe one exception.  Back in the day I remember Amanaman and Ephant Mon were long requested and much gnashing of teeth when they continually were not made.  Being the Cantina is one of the most favorite scenes in all 6 moives, I think there is a pair of characters who have been asked for since the late 90's who we are continually told no over and have been on wishlists for about as long.



The problem being of course likeness rights and all that jazz.  I know the Sandtroopers reported a few years back about one of them (Hewitt?) signing with Hasbro but I find it odd they haven't made one of them yet.  They are about as obscure as everyone else listed and really just set dressing like Yarna and ICMG.  I think interest was actually higher a few years ago than it is now.  Maybe tempered by the signing news and maybe because people actually realize that Hasbro will make just about everything ;)

If we're talking as obscure as ICMG, then I don't see why any of the Ewok TV movie characters can't get made.

I guess for me it would have to be Droids and Ewoks characters. (Ewok movies as well) Vlix would be my #1 choice but even he doesnt compare to how many times i verbalized that i wanted a Yarna figure.

Scott, I'd be afraid that a movement for the twins would truly be a waste of time due to the legality issues.  I want them made as much as anyone, and Hasbro knows the clamor.  They aren't making them for a reason other than perceived lack of interest I think.  A true fan movement would have to be for a character that is obscure but seems intuitively that no one one would care for in Hasbro's mind (not a collective mind of course  :P)

The thread is about who the collectors are going to get behind next, my point is that there have been 10+ characters already named in this thread and each person has their own idea who that should be.  I don't see any massive groundswell for any single character.

I personally want Ackmena and I know I'm not alone but she usually ranks pretty low on peoples list and I've blown my wad as far as chips to cash in and so I've retired from the "Let's get _____ made" campaigns
