Defender Wishlists 2014: The Empire Strikes Back
« on: December 17, 2014, 04:34 AM »


For the last couple of years we ran an informal poll with your 10 most wanted characters from the current Star Wars Films.  Continuing the tradition and trying to finish up before Toy Fair, I thought it would be a good time to revisit those lists. Here's how it works: You send your Wish List for 10[/i] 3 3/4" Figures to me or post them here, be it new figures, resculpts or even re-releases and I'll tally the votes.  After four weeks of list taking I'll publish the results and we will move on to the next movie.  Fan favorite The Empire Strikes Back is currently on deck.   If you need help coming up with names check out the Official Sites Databank:  Episode V.  Have fun and thanks for sending in your lists (remember to limit it to ten)!

Defender Wishlists 2013: The Empire Strikes Back 1 out of 10




#01 Lando Calrissian
#02 Treva Horme
#03 Han Solo (Carbonite)
#04 Lieutenant Sheckil
#05 Bespin Guard (Vintage)
#06 Wiorkettle
#07 Captain Piett
#08 Princess Leia (Bespin Escape)
#09 Vintage Hoth Rebel Commander
#10 Hoth Rebel Technician

Well, I can take off 4 from my list (Snowspeeder Wedge, Toryn Farr, Dagobah Luke, and Han Carbonite).  Yoda moves onto the list, too, since the final result of him and Dagobah Luke don't live up to what I wanted (Yoda= PoA, Luke= Likeness).  Otherwise, I feel that we're scrapping the barrel for figures to find from Empire.

1. Lando Calrissian (Ultimate Sculpt)
2. Tauntaun Handler
3. Luke Skywalker (Ultimate Sculpt, Battle-damaged, torn Bespin fatigues)
4. Captain/Admiral Piett (with swappable rank badges)
5. Princess Leia (Ultimate Sculpt Bespin Capture)
6. Derek “Hobbie” Klevan
7. Bespin C-3PO (with accurate blown apart sculpt)
8. Vintage Bespin Guard
9. Asteroid Victim Imperial Officer
10. Yoda (SA)

Wow, I got 3 last year, including a Yoda with the cloth backpack I always wanted, even if Yoda kinda was meh.  I'm pretty pleased. :)

1 ) SA Lando (with removable cape)
2 ) Hoth Rebel Hangar Technician/Flight Mechanic/Whatever
3 ) Lt. Sheckill (Jeremy Bulloch Imperial)
4 ) Wedge Antilles, Snowspeeder Pilot Brown Coat Hoth Han w/hip articulation & softgoods for Taun Taun riding!
5 ) Hoth Luke (TVC Figure eats it IMO)
6 ) Human/Hunchback Ugnaught
7 ) Dagobah Luke Skywalker Resculpt SA Lobot...  Because.
8 ) Torryn Farr General Riekean Resculpt
9 ) Hoth Rebel Scout (Hoth Rebel Soldier w/more hyper articulation, basically)
10)  Treva Horme

I can't list it since it isn't a figure, but it's high f'n time the tripod laser cannon get a resculpt too.  These days they could make the thing fold up even.  We need that!  Ones we have are huge, and static.
