Defender Wishlists 2009: A New Hope
« on: May 28, 2009, 12:13 PM »


For the last couple of years we ran an informal poll with your 10 most wanted characters from the current Star Wars Films.  Continuing the tradition and trying to finish up before Comic Con 2009, I thought it would be a good time to revisit those lists. Here's how it works: You send your Wish List for 10 3 3/4" Figures to me or post them here, be it new figures, resculpts or even re-releases and I'll tally the votes.  After four weeks of list taking I'll publish the results and we will move on to the next movie.  The Original Star Wars, to most people, Episode IV: A New Hope is now up.   If you need help coming up with names check out the Official Sites Databank:  Episode IV.  Have fun and thanks for sending in your lists (remember to limit it to ten)!

Here are my picks for this year, mostly much needed resculpts. I really want to phase out the remnants of POTF2 era figures.

 1. Ponda Baba
 2. Doctor Evazan
 3. Bom Vimdin
 4. Lak Sivrak
 5. Labria
 6. Leia Yavin cremony
 7. Rebel Fleet trooper
 8. Uncle Owen
 9. Admiral Motti
10. Grand Moff Tarkin

I would have the Tonnika Sisters but there are pretty much off limits. Now if we get the Bonnika sisters, the cousins that look close to them maybe, just mayber Hasbro can make them.

Well I was sorta 4 out of 10, my old #5 is going to be a Legends release for ESB, #6 is coming out with his ship, and #7 was released in a Battlepack....


1.) Grand Moff Tarkin (re-sculpt)
2.) Bom Vindin
3.) Wiosela Ponda Baba (re-sculpt)
4.) Dr. Evazan (re-sculpt)
5.) Chewbacca (re-release of the Early Bird sculpt in the basic line) Bannis Keeg
6.) Wedge Antilles (Super Articulated re-sculpt) Rebel Fleet Trooper (Super Articulated re-sculpt) - sorry JJ I forgot this one last year.  ???
7.) Imperial Officer with Black Tunic Imperial Scanning Technician (Super Articulated re-sculpt)
8 & 9.) Tonnika Sisters (Hasbro could still do these IF they were to use a different likeness, it's doable Big H!!)
10.) Han Solo Yavin Ceremony

It's getting harder and harder every year to think of new choices.

I actually got a couple last year which is odd...  I'm wanting some humans which I know aren't the most popular, but I have to stay true to what I would like.  We've gotten lots of aliens, so I'd like to see some background Humans get a chance if they stood out a little bit.

Here's my '09 list:

1 )  Rebel Fleet Trooper Resculpt

2 )  Grand Moff Tarkin Resculpt

3 )  Yavin Rebel Technician Danz Borin (White Space Suit Dude)

4 )  Bom Vimdin

5 )  Black Tuniced Imperial Officer (any of the ones who had lines in ANH would be nice)

6 )  WED-15 Droid Saurrin (either of them)
 
7 )  Wioslea  Tizvizzit (or how ever you spell it)

8 )  Garrouff Lafoe (Cantina Snitch)

9 )  Jabba's Human Guard 1 (Special Edition, Tall Pointy Hat Guy)

10)  Jabba's Human Guard 2 (Special Edition, Large Bushy Bearded Guy)

But for the love of all things holy can I get my Fleet Trooper already?  :)  I'd love a nice, fairly generic trooper to load up an army with, and take to the shelves!

My 10:

Super Artiucaltion by my definition:  Ball Jointed shoulders, elbows and knees, swivel wrists and ankles, ball socket head and regular waist, hip and leg articulation....

In no particular order:  But all SUPER ARTICULATED

Death Star Trooper Detention Block style, with Jack boots and DH17 blaster and removable helmet and multiple head scultps in the same package
Imperial Officer Detention Block Style, with Holster and removable hat
Tie Fighter Pilot SA not just one arm, one wrist and good knees
Rebel Fleet Trooper (multiple heads in the same package like Concept Fett and Concept Vader)
Ulitmate Tatooine Luke, SA and good scale.
Ceremonial Han Solo SA
Captain Antilles Resculpt with correct colors and SA (maybe multiple heads and just call him Rebel Officer)
X Wing Pilot (on an Average Pilot Frame, not Dutch Vander) SA of course
Old Obi Wan SA..the VOTC one does not cut it since ROTS Jedi came out
Tarkin, SA and updated.







Not sure why we would do OT wishlists....pretty much ANYTHING OT would be on my wishlist this year...

Ok out of last year,  I got 1.

So replace Old Obi Wan with Walrus Man

If you count the Tie Pilot from the Evo Pack then give me Dr. Evazan too.

Yup the world is coming to an end, I put Cantina characters on my list.
