She sure was...  Reminded me of my librarian in elementary school.  Good lord, she acted like the Dewey Decimal System was the 10 commandments.

Where your DDS now!?  Eat it!

Something interesting I noticed about the wishlists for AOTC...  I'd be pretty into a LOT of what the people are asking for, despite it not jiving with my list.  Jocasta Nu is about the only one I'm vehemently against, and even that is more out of principle than me just not actually wanting her in my collection. :)

Clone Wars... lots of interesting choices (especially since Hasbro's not releasing much this year) to do. Do we have a list of characters (Who's Left?), Scott?

Yes, but it is fourteen pages long! And growing...

I just started on the show from season one. Just starting season two. Although the toys are pretty sharp, I will never pick them up outside  a ship here and there that I can re-paint and fit into my OT universe.

A general note about the vintage line, it's weird how things are going with it. It feels like they started the line for people like me who are cutting back to get us back into the game, yet, somehow, someone, be it Hasbro or the retailers, are making production decisions that are making figures harder to get than ever.

Yeah, I don't pick any CW figures up for the most part. I picked up the Bounty Hunters (Bane, Seripas, and Embo) because they look realistic enough to fit in with the rest of the bounty hunters.

Agreed.

Thanks for posting nyknight!  Some interesting people on there.  Scott (who does these wishlists) also has some pics of people on his 'Who's left" thread.  One that I'd like to see is Spider/Scorpion Grievous.

I do not hate astromech droids, in fact R2-D2 is my favorite Star Wars character. I just decided to make a wish list for all the star wars fans in this forum to check out. Thank you for allowing me to post it, hope everyone enjoys the list.

Good CW list methinks...I'm a little surprised that the 3D figures dominated as much as they did. 

ROTS is always tough because it is the most complete set of figures there is and outside of Padme and maybe the Separatists...yawn

I've started drinking the clone resculpt kool-aid...  Jesse made some good points on Bly.

Doesn't anything with a softgoods Kama update seem like a good one then though?  That's a big reason I'd like a Bacara resculpt or Bly (and I'd really REALLY dig the removable bucket for the Clone Wars Bly look)... 

I added Bly to my list this year, and I'll probably add Bacara next time around.  I'd also really like to see them take another stab at the AT-TE gunner.  That was a great design with the separate helmet piece, but that sculpt is lame by today's standards.    Same thing with the buzz droids.  Fun little droids that I'd love to see get an update and it'd be a bonus if they could actually get them to fold up/transform into a ball.

For me, Fordo set a new bar...

cloth kama, early/late war helmets, unique headsculpt based on something or other...

That's what makes me want resculpts of some of those unique Commanders.  I think it would make for a neat Bly that looks both realistic, but also pays homage to the cartoon's look for him with the funky hair...  Gree too, would be a happy resculpt for me.  They've never made the guy's suspenders even. They just do that ****** paintjob and leave it.

I'm ok with resculpts if they're a significant improvement...  Those are significant improvements to me that also knock out a CW version at the same time.  I'm into that.

I think a slighter wookiee warrior wouldn't be a bad thing either.  Everyone lists merumeru and he's cool, but the 2nd Wookiee Warrior they made was a POS.  They can do better, as evidenced by the preview warrior which was outstanding.

Just got a chance to check out the CW list today, really a nice group of characters overall.  I'd buy every one of those.  If the CW stuff is coming to an end somewhat soon, it would be nice if they did a couple of "final waves" wrapping up figures like this.  I remember Mattel did something like that with the JLU line, with a combination of the last packs and exclusives covering some of the undone figures from that show.  Anyways, very nice list.  Agreed on ROTS, kind of boring for the most part with so much being covered already.
