I actually layed asleep at night wishing they made the rebel fleet trooper.

Captain Antilles

Didn't really want the sandtroopers , just more weapon variety for the regular troopers.

And while not exactly a figure I wanted a bantha


As a kid I remember wanting a Luke Bespin with removable hand (yes, I was morbid like that).

Andy

I had a bespin luke that my dog chewed to hand off of. Does that count ?  ;D


Nice custom Luke there!   I think Han Stormtrooper and Cantina Band Member were the two biggies I wanted as a kid.    By the time POTF came around I was kind of off my Star Wars kick- would have loved to see some of the POTF figures earlier too!

With the ReAction new speculation is running with the fact that Hasbro will probably soon revisit the SW Vintage Line.  It is fun to speculate on what or who should have been in the line...personally the ANH list has the most holes:

ANH

RFT
Antilles
Owen
Beru
Biggs
Wedge
Dr Evazan
Garindan
Tarkin
Han Stormtrooper
Cantina Band Member

ESB

Rieekan
Piett or Ozzle

ROTJ

Jedi Luke
Slave Leia
Yarna
Vader w/ Removable Helmet
Ewok Leia

My list:

TPM: QGJ, OWK, Maul, Sidious, Jar Jar, Lil Ani, 3PO

AOTC: Padme Arena, Ani, OWK, 3PO, Dooku, Yoda, Mace, Clone

ROTS: Ani, Obi, Palpatine (Office one), Clone (just white), Padme w/Luke & Leia babies

ANH: Grand Moff Tarkin, RFT (Rebel Trooper), Antilles (Rebel Officer), Wuher (Bartender), Evazan (Space Criminal), Sandtrooper, Scanner Tech, Rebel Tech, Imperial Officer (just a grey color), Death Star Trooper (just black), Garindan (Long snoot), Owen, Beru, Wedge, Biggs, Han Stormtrooper, Cantina Band Guy.

ESB: Rebel Tech, OWK Spirit, Dagobah Luke, Bespin Escape Leia, Rieekan, ICMG

ROTJ: Removable Helmet Vader, DSD Luke, Ephant Mon, Bikini Leia, Yarna, Doallyn, Oola, Y-Wing Pilot, Black Astromech (R2 or R5), Endor Rebel Officer (Vest guys, just for some variation), Human Jabba Goon with the fuzzy hat, just for something obscure...

I'd even take some EU...  Thrawn, Mara, C'Boath, Jedi Luke, Older Han and Pregnant Leia, etc.  I'd be against obscurity at the PT level, but not at the OT level...  For OT, I'd honestly take anything they'd make in the old style.  ICMG would only be the tip of the iceberg to me, but the must-haves I listed for myself here.

Cool, but I disagree with its line-up. It's too main character happy. Ghosts over Ugnaughts or 2-1B or Imperial Gunner or EV-9D9? Spirit figures are kinda boring, and those can be filled with the "living" counterparts. Why does Dengar rate more than 4-Lom or Zuckuss? Any of the hunters aside from Fett were no more important storywise than Snaggletooth and Hammerhead. (Background characters)  Smuggler Lando? He appears onscreen less than say, Bespin escape Leia.

Anyway, adding to vintage Kenner, I limited myself but couldn't keep it at 20 like I intended. I never wanted a Yarna figure as a kid,  but she's notable as having made it to prototype (why her of all characters Kenner?) and I still don't care  :-\.    I'd almost boot Piett, but there was a lack of a grey uniformed officer in the vintage line so might as well get specific. Most named rebel pilots are incidental, especially since Biggs was mostly cut from ANH. A few droids need representation by their model, specifics aren't important.  I love Cantina aliens, but most of them are briefly seen fluff...Jabba's goons at least are belligerents. The vintage Ewoks assortment covered the Ewok bases for the most part (except a female and wokling).

1. Rebel Fleet Trooper
2. Tarkin
3. Garindan
4. Dr. Evazan
5. Cantina Bandsman
6. Owen Lars
7. Beru Lars
8. Stormtrooper Disguise Han
9. Ceremony Luke
10. Ceremony Leia
11. General Dodonna
12. Sandtrooper

13. Bespin Escape Leia
14. Tank Top Luke
15. General Riekeen
16. Snowspeeder Luke
17. Piett

18. Mon Mothma
19. Mon Calamari Officer
20. Pote Snitkin
21. Oola
22. Slave Leia
23. Wedge
24. Y-Wing Pilot (ROTJ)
25. Vader with Removable Helmet
26. Ewok Village Leia
27. R4 astromech (any one)
28. CZ droid (any)
29. "Smuggler" Lando
30. Ishi Tibb (Jabba one, I guess)

I totally brainfarted on, but agree with, Ceremony Luke...  I'd say Leia and a Han as well wouldn't be bad.

Han in stormtrooper gear
Yoda spirit
Obi-Wan spirit
removable helmet Vader
Dr. Evazan
Ceremonial Luke
Ewok ceremonial Leia
Slave Leia
Yarna
Oola
Lando in Han's gear

Seems like most of these would have been easy for Kenner
