If You could choose one more.....
« on: July 28, 2004, 09:53 AM »
If you could have chosen one more figure to be made in the vintage line who or what woul dit have been. Your choice, it could be any one from the original trilogy.

My choice would have to be YARNA D'al GARGAN!!!!!! The prototype was awesome and I really wish they coul dhave got to her.

I always wanted a 'Rebel Fleet Trooper' as a kid! So I painted two DSCs to look like them in '85!  ;)

+ I also made myself a Han in Stormtrooper disguise, using an original 'pin head' Han, to go with the vintage Luke.

Gargan would have been cool too!  ;D

Rebel fleet trooper, though Tarkin would have been most welcome as well.

i always wanted another x-wing pilot, so luke could fly the snowspeeder and someone else could fly the x-wing. or vice versa. so maybe biggs? or wedge?

Gargan is my choice. After seeing the custom Ryan (Bantha5) made, its just so awesome.

I agree with OCB: Grand Moff Tarkin.  Either Tarkin or Garindan.

I think I'd go with Tarkin or a Stormtrooper Han.  Either one would have been pretty cool.

This is a tough one, but I'd probably say Tarkin as well.  Though the RFT, Sandtrooper, Han Trooper, Slave Leia, Oola, and Yarna would've all been excellent choices as well...

What's kind of a bummer, is that I spent a lot of time on the convention circuit in the late 80's/early 90's running around buying up expensive and very well done custom jobs of all of the aforementioned missing vintage figures (including other like Garindan and Ephant Mon), to round out my Star Wars figure collection.  We're talking some pretty good dollars on a lot of these.

Needless to say, I had no idea the modern line was just around the corner in '95.  Pissed me off something fierce all the money I wasted on these, when there would eventually be some real nice versions in the POTF2 era and beyond.

Oh well.   :-\  I'll have to put a shot up soon of some of the vintage customs I bought back then.  Cool stuff still...

That would be really cool to see Matt.  There is still a part of me that wouldn't mind seeing some of those figures you mentioned made in "vintage-style" to display with the old school figures.  I mean, the sculpting today has obviously improved a lot, but there is just something cool about the vintage figures...that never seems to change.
