I like the Bespin Luke's Weathervane, and the Light Up C-3PO that came with Bespin Chewie. As for future releases, I'm going to have to say the Control Center that is coming with the General Rieken figure. :)

Right now I have to agree with the C3PO packed with Chewie.

I also have to agree with the war board... that's gonna be sweet. I hope it has lil translucent lines and circles on it.

I like the weather vane too.  3PO is a close second but I'd have been happier if it had been a two pack or deluxe figure where you could rebuild him completely with the light-up eyes.

I am hoping, hoping, hoping that Dodonna will come with half of the Yavin Board, that is my ultimate pack in wish (along with a vaporator!)

Soooooo, I'll go with Chewie's Dejarik Table

2 come to mind immediatley...

Of course, the Bacta Tank Luke came with is awesome...  It's big, it's to-scale, it's accurate, it has a neat working action feature, it connects well with 2-1B and FX-7...

That's a great accessory, but...

I also like the Bespin Guard because he had so much!  Sure it's small, but he had binders, a blaster that fit in its holster and was really accurate to the film's blasters, a baton that fit on his belt, and even a removable cap.

That's a figure decked out in great, detailed, and plentiful accessories.

There's a thread over at Rebelscum right now wishing for more/better accessories with STar Wars figures, and wouldn't you know that a GREAT suggestion like that would be met by people saying "We get enough already", and that Hasbro can't do more for cost issues.

Do these people not look at other toy lines?  Do they get their checks from Hasbro?  What am I missing that suggested IMPROVEMENTS are cited as "impossible" or "unnecessary"?

What happened to people actually having some expectations?  Sad to see the hobby's potential held back by people.

Jesse I cant agree more. People jump the gun on things. Sure, we all have a few times (except for me of corse ;) J/K) when we try and halt our expectations when previous things dont meet our demands, but hey, life goes on.

One of my repeat favorite acessories is lightsabers...

Easy to customize, and fun for play!

I'm glad that they finally started packing in stands!  

Otherwise,  I'm looking forward to Gen. Rieekan's accessory...  the radar screen

I agree with many others, really looking forward to Rieekan's screen....the accessories have really gotten bigger and better over the past year or so.  I also like Cloud City Chewie's 3PO, and the weather vane with Luke.  We also have that escape pod coming up with that 3PO possibly?...but which is the accessory...the pod or the droid?  Just kidding.  The Saga line has had its faults, but it has allowed us to get some great, in many cases larger, accesories.

Yes, I agree that Riekean is one of the superior looking figures and his accessory does rock.

CUstomizer heaven for me.  I want a "Fleet General" Riekean too after I get some Dodonna/Antilles parts to work with possibly.  

I just hope that Dodonna and Antilles are good NEUTRAL figures with maybe some nice articulation, and not pre-posed.  Just good accurate sculpts for each.

The sensor screens Riekean comes with are musts for any rebel base diorama (Yavin or Echo, or even Home One).

Teemto Pagalies definitely has some of the nicer accessories in the basic SAGA line.  The engine parts and salvage droid are both cool.  To the point where I bought a couple of Teemto's just for the parts!

I think Darth Vader-Bespin Duel and Luke Skywalker-Bespin Duel both have some cool accessories as well.  The gantry parts and weathervane are both cool.  The accessories for Luke Skywalker-Throne Room Duel are in my opinion BETTER than the actual figure.  The base is really nice, as is the first rendition of Luke's ROTJ lightsaber in the new style.

Other honorable mentions?  The figures with bases, notably...

Tusken Raider - Tatooine Camp Attack
Padme Amidala - Droid Factory Chase
Aayla Secura - Jedi Knight
Barriss Offee - Luminara Unduli's Padawan
Coleman Trebor
Wat Tambor
Padme Amidala - Secret Ceremony
