I think I had him on my lists at one point, but then my priorities changed.  Still would be cool to see him done.

He's an interesting choice, but begs the question, would he be...

Hologram style? That is transparent blue, how they've been doing holograms (except Jabba's palace Luke, which was some time ago)

More movie accurate? That is translucent with paint details like recent "Jedi spirit" figures.

A normal not-see-through Imperial officer? Not screen accurate, but arguably more useful as a "toy".

In theory they could do more than one of the above, but the rate Hasbro does things, especially obscure Imperial officers, that seems unlikely.

I really can't seem them going nuts on imperial officers unless it is a multipack style...Ozzle, Piett, Jerjerrod, Scheckil, Jir, Lennox etc etc

I think that you'd probably have to do Asteroid Victim Star Destroyer Captain as part of a multi-pack, with Vader and some other Imperials.  Ideally, I'd like to see the AVSDC's hologram de-rezzing as his Star Destroyer is being hit by the asteroid.  But then, that's just me.

I think piett and sheckil have best shot.  Piett because he's quasi main.  Sheckil because hasbro likes doing the helmet less actor homage.  I'd say Ozzel redo next though for my money is be happy with at most new legs and a new color.
