What evidence is there that the line is going to end?  As far as I can tell it's as popular as it ever was.

You don't understand.  The last two waves aren't being spotted very frequently at retail.  Therefore, the line is going to end soon.  The sky will fall any day now....

10. Luke Bespin Head

Just the head?  How would that be packaged, like a multi-pack of heads? 

I say let the line die.  There are only a few figs that I half-heartedly want.  They would be:

ANH
- Dr. Evazan
- Uncle Owen

ESB
- Torryn Farr
- Bespin Guard
- Hoth Leia


ROTJ
- Jabba
- Gammorean Guard

Following Scott's lead and looking through this list....


Like I just posted in the other thread on this general topic, I think there will be some scaling back.  And a look at the numbers is very much a significant part of that discussion.

As for OT figures I'd like to see resculpted?


A NEW HOPE
-Grand Moff Tarkin
-Ponda Baba
-Dr. Evazan
-Owen Lars
-Rebel Fleet Trooper

THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK
-Luke Skywalker - Hoth
-Leia - Hoth
-Han Solo - Bespin
-Dack Ralter
-Leia - Cloud City escape
-Luke Skywalker - Dagobah training
-Admiral Piett


RETURN OF THE JEDI
-Gamorrean Guard
-Jabba the Hutt
-Saelt Marae (Yakface)
-Weequay skiff guard
-Oola
-EV-9D9
-Nein Nunb - Millenium Falcon co-pilot
-Admiral Ackbar
-Mon Mothma
-Wicket W. Warrick
-Logray


A couple of these seem to have been confirmed.  But until I actually see a hardcopy of a new figure I'm going to refrain from crossing them off the list.

EDIT - Glad to be able to cross of Tarkin, Weequay & Nien Nunb after Toy Fair!

I'd put Hoth Luke back on there...  He's attrocious, as a LUke, IMO.

As a custom fodder regular schmo, he's workable, but as Luke I find his new figure to be an absolute letdown.

With all the talk that the end could be closer than we thought....

I guess the end isn't as close as we thought back in 2009.

Wow, so much has changed and Hasbro actually gave us a fair share of nice resculpts.  On that note, I wouldn't mind seeing them follow suit by giving us resculpts of the following:

ANH
1. Ceremonial Leia (the last one we got was like, what, 1998?)
2. Lars Power Droid
3. Uncle Owen
4. Aunt Beru

ESB
1. Yoda (an OT version is LONG overdue)
2. Leia Bespin Escape

ROTJ
1. Emperor with throne
2. Sim Aloo
3. Mon Mothma
4. Yak Face
5. EV-9D9
6. 8D8
7. Sy Snootles (original)

I think Droid Factory will take care of these next year.

I think at least one of these would make for a decent Droid Factory B-A-F.  And in that case, I'd lean towards EV-9D9 since that droid has some dialogue.

You know, I'm actually pleased with the Star Tours version (which is simply the POTF2 version with newer paint apps).  But yeah, I do have a soft spot for Ree Yees, I just don't like to show it.
