Defender Wishlists 2009: Expanded Universe
« on: June 26, 2009, 06:50 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 three weeks of list taking I'll publish the results and we will move on to the next movie.  Now up, the ever expanding Expanded Universe.  If you need help coming up with names check out the Official Sites Databank:  Databank.  Have fun and thanks for sending in your lists (remember to limit it to ten)!

Feel free to list anything not seen in the movies (Comics, Novels, Video Games, TV Holiday Specials etc EXCEPT CLONE WARS).  This is the first official time we've done EU so go nuts!

In no particular order and All super Articulated (that means the knees actually bend Hasbro)

1.  Wedge Antilles from "X-Wing" Novel Series
2.  Tycho Celchu from "X-Wing" Novel Series
3.  Wes Janson from "X-Wing" Novel Series
4.  Derek "Hobbie" Klivian from "X-Wing" Novel Series
5.  Myn Dynos from "X-Wing" Novel Series
6.  Corran Horn from "X-Wing" I didn't even know he was a Jedi till I saw an early post...glad I missed those books
7.  Kirtan Loor from.....wait for it......."X-Wing" Novels
8.  Garik "Face" Loran from the aforementioned "X-Wing:Wraith Squadron" Novels
9.  Kell Tainer from a previously unheard of "X-Wing" series of books put together in novel form and sold sequentially as to make an ongoing story.
10.  Any non-jedi, non-alien, non-female, non-prequel, non-cyborg, non-new jedi order human that may have appeared either in a featured role or cameo in an obscure but delightful series of books by Ballentine based on the further adventures of "Rogue Squadron"..books 1 through 9 or if that is too broad I'll take the Rabbit guy from the Comic when we were kids.

I'm pretty sure none of mine will make the list since none are "Darths" or Jedi...but you gotta vote to be heard.....

Wow I got 2 of these from my 2007 list.

So I will say

1.  Dash Rendar from Shadows of the Empire
2.  Tycho Celchu from "X-Wing" Novel Series
3.  Wes Janson from "X-Wing" Novel Series
4.  Derek "Hobbie" Klivian from "X-Wing" Novel Series
5.  Myn Dynos from "X-Wing" Novel Series
6.  Guri from Shadows
7.  Kirtan Loor from.....wait for it......."X-Wing" Novels
8.  Garik "Face" Loran from the aforementioned "X-Wing:Wraith Squadron" Novels
9.  Kell Tainer from a previously unheard of "X-Wing" series of books put together in novel form and sold sequentially as to make an ongoing story.
10.  Jaxxon (just for the novelty)

Mine are going to be pretty dull, I suppose...

01.  Ackmena (SW Holiday Special)
02.  Kal Skirata (Republic Commando books)
03.  Kazdan Paratus (The Force Unleashed)
04.  PROXY (The Force Unleashed)

06.  General Grievous (ROTS Concept Art as Child in Hover Chair)
07-10.  Delta Squad (Republic Commando game; just repaint the Evolutions Commando x 4 with different accessories)

As you can tell, I'm not much of an EU fan.  :-\

I actually sorta kinda got 4 figures last year.  :)  I don't have my Bothan yet, but when I track down that pack Fey'Lya is in I should have him.  Still, 4 EU guys I wanted, more or less, isn't bad.

Anyway, on to my list complete with replacements...


1 )  Kyle Katarn (Dark Forces 2: Jedi Knight)  Sith Soldier...  From Knights of the Old Republic, it'd be slick to get a Sith Trooper in their shiney masks for the line.  KOTOR is pretty character-rich, and this guy's high on my list. 

2 )  Jan Ors (Dark Forces 2: Jedi Knight)...  Katarn needs his partner in life and business, Jan Ors.  Here she is with Kyle.


3 )  Jerec (Dark Forces 2: Jedi Knight)...  EU figures aren't fun unless you get enough for a scene I think.  Jerec is Katarn's nemesis throughout Jedi Knight.  A must-have enemy for Katarn to whack.


4 )  Space Trooper (West End Games)...  West End Games designed the Space Trooper...  Hasbro used a horrible EU design from comic books that doesn't lend itself to realism in the slightest.  This design is the original, and this is the true way a Spacetrooper should look.  Screw that Dark Horse comic look from the Thrawn Trilogy adaptaion.


5 )  Rebel Infiltrator (West End Games RPG)...  The Alliance's most elite Soldiers are the Infiltrators.  For you GI Joe fans, think Snake Eyes in Star Wars. :)  They are a division of Special Forces and also include secret agents like Kyle Katarn that act independantly as well, but their fighting teams are like Rebel Navy SEALS.  The picture isn't the best.


6 )  HK-47 (KOTOR)  Ackmena (Holiday Special)...  I'll jump on the Ackmena bandwagon.

7 )  T3-M4 (KOTOR)...  T3 is again a droid from KOTOR, and I love this design.  Is this not the epitome of early astromech to you guys?  You gotta love it.


8 )  A Bothan  Rebel Biker Scout...  From the West End Games miniatures line, they had a Rebel Soldier as a Scout.  Basically it looked like a Fleet Trooper with a little more bulky jacket and slightly sleeker helmet (movable visor would be neat on this one). 

9 )  New Republic Trooper/Soldier (KOTOR)...  Essentially this is my request for a post SA ROTJ Fleet Trooper...  Their uniforms are like a mix of Madine with Fleet helmets and that's about it.  Different colors.

10)  Noghri Warrior (Thrawn Trilogy)  Corran Horn (Green X-Wing uniform)...  Just for you Jason. :P

Pretty much the same list for me too.  Like Scott, not a real big deal to me if we get these or not, but they would be nice "gravy" figures for the line at some point.  Always up for more from the Thrawn trilogy though.

1 - Emperor (McQuarrie Concept)
2 - Lando Calrissian (McQuarrie Concept)
3 - Joruus C'Boath (Thrawn Trilogy)
4 - Bollux/Blue Max (Han Solo Trilogy)
5 - Noghri (Thrawn Trilogy)
6 - Admiral Pellaeon (Thrawn Trilogy)
7 - Corran Horn (I, Jedi) Dash Rendar (SOTE)
8 - Lumpawarrump (Holiday Special)
9 - Malla (Holiday Special)
10 - Attichitcuk (Holiday Special)
