I've always liked the commtech Gonk, but I've got all mine rubber-banded together at the ankles to keep their legs in a central position so the damn thing stands on its own. Interesting feature to make its legs walk, but it sucks as a toy then to me.
I'd like to see them update the legs to a poseable leg system (I think the body is fine), and I agree that they should do a vintage blue deco one then to really consider this figure "done". To me it's no different than the DSCommander or a Hoth Rebel in a brown vested uniform. They have to be done to the figure/character they're based on to be "done".
I have a ton of the CT figure though, and they make good background filler. I have a number of the repaint too, for the Hoth Gonk droid. I like it even more because it has a customizability to it with the top ports. I have one with 2 of the small black ports, one with a large orange port and small black port, one with neither port... It's a more fun figure in that respect.
If they'd fix the legs, I'd be dandy with its final sculpt. If they'd give us a blue one, I'd be really dandy with yet another vintage figure knocked out by Hasbro.
