Blah...not sure if this is worth it as it will eventually be the same as last year.

By my count we got only 1 of the entire list of 80...Han Carbonite.  And I think people actually would have wanted a Han Pre Carbonite as well like we got a few times before...ugh

Gonna be a tough year but I think it's always worth the effort.  As of right now a 3.75" line exists for collectors, so I say it's always worth it then.  Last year's a hard barometer given all the f-ups.

As would Clone Wars.  Nevertheless....

We should do a 6" version wishlist... just limit the choice to 2-4 characters.

I think 10 figures is alright for 6 inch... isn't that a year of figures in that line anyway?

I think this is the year I stop playing the "who else can I put on my list to get it to ten names" game. 

With the current delicate state of the Hasbro 3.75" Star Wars line, I don't think I can in good faith lobby Hasbro to add someone like Erdan or Jira into the line.  :-\

Looks like RotJ's "Rebel with Nice Hat" has officially been reclassified as one of Jabba's Henchman:

And that makes him even less likely to be made into figure form than before.

I didn't realize everyone thought he was an Endor Commando?  I never really did.  I was a hipster of knowing he wasn't an Endor Rebel I guess.  :P

I didn't realize that anyone didn't think that he was. Considering that every single time that image was printed he was identified as a rebel.

It's little things like this that make me want a figure of some characters. I had no desire for this guy before but now that he has this long history of being misidentified I would very much like a figure of him.

I always figured he was a cast-off chracter, but never figured he was a Rebel...  There was a little outfit continuity among them, and there's scenes where you can see them all...  He was never anywhere.  I figured at best he was a dropped design.

I always figured he was a CCG designer who made a character of himself.

The CCG's really blurred a lot for people, yes. :)

The CCG is one of the few places that didn't misidentify him because they never made a card of him.
