I can't resist the vintage cardbacks.  Now if only I could find some VOTC cases. . .

Um...I've got about 12-15 in my attic.  Want them?

So, since ten of the thirty seven figures we're getting in the Vintage Collection this year are supposed to be "Greatest Hits never before seen on Vintage Cards", are there any in particular you would like to see?  I'm sure many (if not all) will be from the prequels (I think Grievous, Maul, and Qui Gon were all mentioned during the presentation if I remember correctly from what I watched online), but are there any others you'd specifically like to see?  I wouldn't mind seeing some of the figures we maybe would have/should have got in the vintage era, like Stormtrooper Han, Jabba's Prisoner Leia, Sandtrooper, etc.  I'd say things like Tarkin and the Rebel Fleet Trooper as well, but I think those could use better figures instead of just being repacked.

I knew there was a big one I was forgetting....definitely Wedge.  We all know how long we've waited to see him on a basic card, and the vintage line would be the perfect place.  Hopefully we see the one from the Target X-Wing recarded into this line sometime soon (or even a Snowspeeder version).  One of the most overlooked characters of the entire saga, hopefully he'll get his basic carded due.

I'd love to see both X-Wing and Snowspeeder versions, but I'll settle for either one at this point.  I'd love a ROTJ card.

I go back and forth on a carded set. I know I won't be able to resist the temptation come Fall, though, so I just as well get used to the idea and start saving now.  :D

I imagine they're including Boba Fett, 4-LOM, & the "fixed" Vader as Greatest Hits so far, and we're not getting an ANH wave this year, so that limits it to seven figures from AOTC, ROTS, and ROTJ.

It would be a cop out for them to repack one of the "new" Ewoks. But I can totally see them rereleasing the new Slave Leia. Can't really see them using any more of the Legacy ROTJ figures, though. Maybe somebody kinda old like J'Quille or Tanus Spijek. Heck, my dream ROTJ repack would be Bubo (even without a Jawa handler, though they should both fit in a vintage bubble).

When they get around to some ANH figures, I wouldn't be surprised to see them trot out Captain Antilles again. Didn't they recently say how good the sculpt holds up on him specifically? I'd like to see a few out of date repacks there too, like the big R1 droid and the Yavin Honor Guard.

Of course, they can always wedge Wedge in to any of the OT waves.

For me personally, my must haves for this line break down like so:

OT:

Jawa, Death Squad Commander, Hammerhead, Wedge, Slave Leia, Stormtrooper Han, Tarkin, Oola, Cantina Band Member, Snowtrooper Commander, Uncle Owen, Rebel Fleet Trooper, Death Star 2 Luke, Removable Helmet Vader (I know we're techincally getting one already, but I wanted as a kid a figure that did this, and featured helmetless Vader on the card).

PT:

Qui Gon, Maul, Jar Jar, Amidala, Anakin, Obi-Wan, Battle Droid, Destroyer Droid, Jango Fett, Count Dooku, Mace, Sidious, Grievous, Clone Trooper(s), Cody, Plo Koon, and lots of stuff that's not necessarily recards.

I'm very pleased by how Hasbro is upping their game in the articulation department. C-3PO is by far just waaaay too amazing. I'm still waiting for a similar R2-D2.

How much more "pimping" can Hasbro do with R2?  I'm actually quite happy with my mass army of astro-droid repaints - once I finally open all of them that is.

I wouldn't mind seeing R2 get the "Clone Wars R2" treatment with hidable gear like that rather than the pop-on parts and stuff.  Beyond that though, I agree that Resurgence R2 could come out with a couple deco variants and I'd gladly rebuy (Sandy/muddy/snowy/greasy/etc.).  I'd take 2 or 3 clean ones too.

Though the resurgence R2 would be acceptable, one with bells and whistles would justify the price a heck of a lot better.

Just a reminder that Hasbro has already said via the Q&A that they are working on a new R2/Astromech sculpt -

"we are currently developing an all new astromech with some pretty nifty features for the line in late 2010."

There's nothing specific mentioned in the answer, but they've dropped enough hints in other Q&As about lightsaber-popping and endor bunker attachments that the rumor mill says we'll see this new R2 in the Fall RotJ wave... nothing confirmed yet though.
