Defender Wishlists 2014 Discussion
« on: May 6, 2014, 03:46 PM »
Fear not gentle readers, we are going to do wishlists but we are going to make sure we capture post SDCC this year since our results got to Hasbro at Toyfair.  Plus, we have gotten a whopping two figures off of all of last years list.  We'll start with Phantom Menace again here in a few weeks. :-*

TPM would very likely be a whole thread's worth of everyone copying and pasting their list from 2012.  And I foresee that continuing on for several more years.  That might go for AOTC and ROTS for a while, too.

Still, are we going to start with a REBELS category?  We seem to know some characters based purely on their upcoming figures.  Do we know enough about the characters in the series to even come up with an entire list?

I think we can do a Rebels list since we stopped TCW, another reason to wait post SDCC as we could do Rebels last right before Toy Fair.

Good call...

Rebels is a very good idea.  Unfortunately no Rebels vehicles list. :(  Cuz I know I'm gonna want a lot of that stuff.

Re: The Phantom Menace Wishlist -

I would probably buy more TPM figures if they make them (Kitster, Wald, Senators, pod racer pilots, etc), but if Hasbro announced they were never making another figure from TPM again , I'd probably be OK with that.

I almost...almost lumped the Prequels into one wishlist.  We might not get a "new" non resculpt figure for 5 years.  I can sure see them doing OWK and Maul and Jango etc but will we ever get Kitster?  Nope #retailpoison

Yeah, that's an interesting idea.  Strange to think that this could very well be the last TPM/AotC/RotS wishlists we ever do...   I suppose it's maybe the last one for the "Star Wars Legends" EU stuff too?

I would have been okay with lumping the prequels into one list... or even making it down to 5 figures each film, especially given Hasbro and Disney's (supposed) focus on the OT.  In several years time, the wishlist go go year-round. (Episodes 1-9, Rebels, EU, CW, Spin-off movies, 6", Champions).  That would be a headache.  But still, this is one of the things I enjoy about JD.

The other thing is we have gotten like 4 figures in 3 years total from the Prequels...the lists will be the same this year as last with some slight variations

I don't think you get enough differentiation with just 5 votes, I'd rather see one ten-vote Prequel Wishlist instead of three five-vote ones. 

And I think Scott already said that TCW Wishlist was done and TCW would just roll into the EU Wishlist going forward...  though I suppose we need to talk about whether or not it's worth voting for "Star Wars Legends" characters going forward since their day seems to have passed as well (unless they are easy repaints or repacks of course).

I like the idea of a combined top ten for all the prequels. Not one prequel character cracked last year's overall top ten.

And it'd be less work for Scotty, too. All that extra free time could be used to finish up his abandoned Collect All 92 feature.

An even better reason...  ;)

A quick question regarding the TPM list:  I saw a couple of entries for R2-G2.  When I googled that droid I came up with images of a droid that's been identified elsewhere as R2-T0, which came in one of the WalMart exclusive Droid Factory 2-packs.  Is this a case of mistaken identity, or a call for a resculpt?

On another note, are we going to do a poll for the 6" figure line?
