2010 "Vintage" Collection Wave 2 - RotS
« on: February 3, 2010, 01:21 PM »
So, according to info from Hasbro we should be seeing another (*groan*) RotS themed wave this year...

Thoughts on who you'd like to see show up?  Have any line-up guesses based on Q&A answers?

Since Senate Duel Palpy showed up in the fan poll, I'd like to think they would finally give us him... but based on recent history with RotS waves, I'm expecting an Anakin of some sort and some other useless figures I don't really need.   ::)

Funeral Padme with floating coffin
Vader and his medical pod oh wait, no pack-ins... or do accessories count?
Dooku's pilot droid.
Fembot (seen in some of the council and opera scenes)
Bail Organa (Airspeeder pilot outfit)

I dunno, just don't think there realy are too many characters I "need" from the movie.

Maybe some of the Speratist leaders not already made.

Oh, the OTHER Utai wrangler!

I GUARANTEE we get a rerelease of the TLC Grievous with a new cape. And as much as I would complain, I'll buy it for the cape. :-[

But yeah, we don't need more from ROTS, except for Senate Duel Palpatine and an updated Office Duel Palpatine. Maybe an updated Yoda. We'll probably get a Sith Eyes Anakin (which I wouldn't mind if they use the Evolution body with new arms) and judging by the ESB wave, probably a Tarfuul resculpt.

Ooh, I wouldn't mind a redone Magnaguard.

I'm with the general consensus here where I'd like to see the Senate and Office Duel Palpatines the most.  I think ROTS is fleshed out pretty well for the most part otherwise.  I'd also like to see the MagnaGuards get a re-do (the CW ones are better than the ROTS ones I think), and there are always Padmes to be made.  I wouldn't mind seeing another Wookiee Warrior here or there as well (like Merumeru).  I too think we'll see an Anakin in this wave.  I think that Hasbro has dropped hints before on "upgrading" the evolutions version, primarily meaning ball jointed elbows.  Of course, the way things have been looking lately, they'll probably completely resculpt him instead - which really isn't necessary.  I'd be fine with ball joint elbows on the Evo Anakin.  I could definitely see Grievous w/cape included here as well.

Some things from ROTS I'd like to see...

-Anakin's arms get updated to ball-joints.
-Anakin & Obi-Wan with scorched burn marks on their outfits from Mustafar (yeah, I'd buy them again).
-Spider Grievous (I like that idea a lot).
-A new Neimoidian guard (I'm probably one of two people who'd like to see his articulation improved)
-Cat Min release with sturdier plastic for the legs.
-Senate Duel Palpy
-Office Duel Palpy
-A new Royal Guard (SA him?)
-Hangar Clones (unarmored, jumpsuited Clones seen in the background)
-SA Cody Clone like mentioned
-Commander Bly (the accurate deco with a removable helmet, perhaps reflecting how he looks from the cartoon even?)
-Shaak Ti resculpted to SA
-A new smaller built Wookiee Warrior
-501st Trooper with pluggable saber hole for Yoda's impaling scene
-New Tarrful
-Larger platform for Obi/Ani to duel on
-V-Wing Pilot
-Floating Medical Capsule w/Ani
-Small Crab Droid

I'd like to see some of that stuff so I've got hope a ROTS could be good...  I just think it's going to be a lot of things I think are kind of lame, but whatever.  Maybe a couple of those will slip in there somehow.

I hope it's some of the following: 

Senate Duel Sidious
Senate Duel Yoda
Buns Style Hairdo Padme
Upgraded Anakin
Burnt to a Crisp Anakin and Medical Capsule
Spider Grevious would be nice
Office Duel Sidious

I am not really wanting any but I am sure we'll get a few clonetroopers.

I would echo a lot of what has already been said, so I won't - but one figure I don't recall seeing as I scanned the posts above is Merumeru (or whatever that Wookie's name is).  I would be down for him.

Yeah, I can't think of any real "wants" from Sith, as many of the original 2005 figures were pretty great.  Oddly, I'd like some of the strange opera guests, but that's just me.

The only figure I'd like to see from this movie is a great senate duel Sidious.
