Picking out Prequal figures for this year is gonna be a real bitch.

I know that Podracing Ani and C-3PO are out this year, but aren't they just repacks of the E1 sculpt? If it's not, then I'll change my vote.
Yes the ones in the battlepack are just repaints. The Anakin in MH line is new but it actually has less articulation than the last one we got in 2000.

That's what I thought. Until Ani gets articulation and 3PO is a BADish version, they stay on my list.

Why is it still Kitster/Wald?  The odds are that these would be on individual cards.

Because they've always been listed that way...because they could come in something like a Battle Pack...because I'd rather they don't take up two spots

I broke them out separately on my list this year simply because I was too lazy and didn't want to try to think up another TPM character I wanted in that spot... :P

Pod pilot w/Pit Droid happened, and that's basically a 2-pack, so they're able to do it if they want I think.  I'll stick with a 2-pack then.  As individuals they'd be tough pills to swallow.

I've seen a few votes for Padme Handmaiden...I know it isn't exactly Padme but this worked for me:

I'd like to see SA versions of Senator Palpatine, Nute Gunray and Rune Haako. Padme Naberrie and Queen Amidala as seen during the first wave back in 99. Oh and either re-release Sio Bibble if nothing else or re-do him with SA. I mean come on, they remade Ric Olie??

The choices for TPM are really starting to dwindle outside of Mos Espa and the Pod Race.  But seeing how we've been living with TPM for 13 years now you had to expect that Hasbro would exhaust a lot of the character choices.  I really had to search for some interesting choices for my own list.

Still there are some characters that I think would be good honorable mentions:
-Ebe Endicott
-Ark "Bumpy" Roose
-Nobot
-Eeth Koth resculpt
-Depa Billaba resculpt

Rabe is ok, but she doesn't work for a Padme Handmaiden, and I'd really like to see one.

Really the only thing I'd probably buy at this point from TPM would be more figures like Rum Sleg. Watching TPM 3D I noticed a lot of background figures that would look good in an OT themed Mos Eisely display as well.

Yeah...  I'd dig seeing Jabba's Barada type guard with the big assed rifle.  That guy is really needing made and my first "background" type guy in this film that needs a figure.  Then his droid would be a nice thing to finally get too, besides the RC one.  RC is cool, but I want the proper sized one that can just stand there and look awesome.

I am fairly ok with the handmaiden we got back in 2004-ish or whenever that thing came out.  I'd be ok with an SA one with softgoods, but at the same time I really feel their purple battle outfits are far more important than the hippie robes they wore for what seemed like a short time and insanely boring scenes.

And man oh man...  I could see Bibble maybe make it into a multi-pack or something, but I'd really hate to see them ever waste money on new tools of figures like Senator Palps or BibbleDizzle.  I know they can be made to look better, and I'm the last guy to poo poo articulation upgrades on figures 10+ years old, but those two are SO boring.  Ric Olie?  Dull maybe, but he's basically a headswap with a figure that sells well, and he actually is involved in the "action" taking place in the film.  With that in mind I think he's far superior to Palps in the Senate and Bibble standing around being bearded. 

I'm all for a re-release of the original in a pack with (if they were to redo Padme in the purple outfit with some good articulation) some head variant purple battle outfit handmaidens or some head variant Naboo Guards, Troopers, Ground Crew, or whatever. 

Of course that would mean a multi-pack of figures worth buying I guess...  definitely not likely in the Battlepack realm anytime soon.

Jabba's guard is named Chokk.

If they do ever remake Senator Palpatine they should include the robe he wore in the senate. Amidala too.
