All of the ones you mentioned are needed, much needed.

I'd like to see just a few random Hoth troopers to go into a trench scene... and maybe a neutral posed Snowtrooper would be nice ( ::) ).

Torryn Farr

Echo Base Troop (like vintage figure)

I'll take 'em all... please!   8)  I've definitely been hoping for Torryn and Cliffy the most.  Not sure if Torryn will need her display panel, now that it's coming with Rieekan, but the more the merrier if Hasbro wanted to throw it in.  But she's pretty damned far down the ladder of obscurity, so I'm not sure if we'll ever get around to seeing her.  Hopefully so though.

Cliff Claven is just too "interesting" of a cross-over character to pass up on though, I think.  He'd make a nice middle of the road Hoth Officer as well, to fit in between the ranks of Rieekan and the standard (wide-posed) scrub.

What else?  How about we swith briefly to vehicles, and Hasbro hooks us up with one of those small troop transport things that cruises around the Rebel hangar?  That'd be nice.  Or perhaps that will be in the Battle of Yavin assortment instead.  Either way, it's a long overdue, and underappreciated vehicle.  The unsung hero of the Rebel Alliance, if you will.  Without it, the pilots can't man their ships and get into battle after all!   8)

Figures I think we still need from Hoth vary...  We've got a good start on needs listed so far though!

My list would include:

-Hoth Rebel Soldier (Yes, redone) with better articulation, macro binoculars, and a removable hat with a real cloth scarf attached to it.  

-Brown Vested Petty Officer...  I agree with others, he's in demand.  Bren Derlin may act as this guy, but a variation head (generic) would be nice as half of the figure's run, or even a greater than half run?

-New Gen. Veers w/Removable armor, hat, and helmet...

-New Imperial Snowtrooper (Grunt) with working holster, great articulation, and soft goods skirt/mask pieces.

-Dack with Removable helmet

-Hoth Rebel Technician (Long brimmed hat with ear covers)

-Vehicle Maintenance Energizer (Not a figure, but would be  a neat Deluxe item).

-Power Droid with sockets on its head.

-New To-Scale Snowspeeder (Again, not a figure but I'd love an all-new to-scale sculpt on this bad boy).

-Rebel Taun-Taun Scout (Footsoldier able to ride a Taun-Taun basically).

-Rebel Laser Tower (Yet again not a figure but it'd be neat to see a to-scale version of the tower released, maybe even with a figure who can hold his binoculars to his eyes?)

-Rebel Tri-pod Laser Cannon (It was different, and sometimes didn't have a pod but was just resting on the side of the trench...  I'd dig this personally, with a gunner).

-Hoth Luke Pilot figure with removable helmet, lightsabre, blaster with working holster, and concussion grenade (And maybe his magnetic grapple rope?)

-Hoth Han Solo without action feature or action pose, and a cloth hood and removable hat.  What I wish the Saga version was. :)

-Captain Lennox (I believe that's his name...  "First catch of the day" fellow).

Everyone forgot a Rebel on Hoth who got a good chunk of screen time, Wedge's gunner and Rogue Squadron hero, Wes Janson. It would also be certainly nice if we got a Dack Ralter on a single card or as part of some sort of Rebel pilots army builder set. Could you imagine getting say Luke, Wedge, Dack, and even Janson in a 4pack similar to the Stormtrooper set, now that would be sweet!

I want to see Major Derlin and a Hoth Trooper along the lines of the vintage version...

And yes,  we could definitely use more snowspeeder pilots.

A 4 pack with the same bodies I think would be fine, same goes for the Rebel Pilots from ANH and ROTJ.

Just give us different heads and helmets and people would lap these suckers up

Imagine a 10 pack of ANH pilots or 20 pack of ROTJ pilots :o

How cool would it be if Hasbro made another Hoth Wave ?

This could come with R5-M2, Bren Derlin, R2-D2 (sensorscope), Ultra Transport Sleigh and Ultra Toryn Farr

 
R5-M2 and Transport Sleigh
The Sleigh could come with the driver.

 
Bren Derlin
The Major could come with a control pad and a Hoth Power Box (or another small diorama object)
 

 
Toryn Farr
Toryn Farr  can come with a rehashed control panel, and a chair.

 
R2-D2
R2-D2 can come with a removeble sensorscope and a light snow deco. Tough, this figure isn't really needed.


Who else has ideas ?

If I get a Bren Derlin figure, he'd better come with an alternate USPS uniform and beer and pretzels. Hell, just put him in a two-pack with Norm. (I'm probably the only person in the world who'd get a kick out of Cheers figures.)

I tought I taw a puddy-tat.  

I'm sorry, that's lame, but I couldn't resist.  

I'm all for another Hoth wave, but after a 4 pack and a wave I see it as doubtful.  Not sure I can afford them adding yet another Hoth wave.   :-\

Here's what I think they oughta do:

ULTRA

Toryn Farr w/ chair and computer console

Hoth Trooper w/ snap together gun turret (can snap together like the 3PO escape pod)

Probot w/ snow base (similar to the Wampa base)

BASIC FIGURES

Snowspeeder pilot (super articulated)

Luke Skywalker (medical robes after getting out of Bacta tank)

General Veers (removable armor and helmet)

Han Solo (Falcon repair scene w/out hood up and with the repair droid)

- Hopefully they can do something like this; the Hoth Trooper would be cool if they retooled the current SAGA version with added height and articulation.  Or what the hell; they should probably just start over from scratch on that figure.

 :P
