I know what you mean about your worries for pegwarming Matt. I'm having SOTE Nightmares all over again.
If I were to request new CW items though, I'd go with this:
-A 3-pack of human males and female Jedi... One sculpt, 3 different decoed outfits though, and each with a cloth outer robe (And cloth skirt pieces). Since one sculpt it used (And 3 unique headsculpts) the single body is articulated well with 14 points of articulation and liberal use of the ball/socket joint Hasbro's come up with.
-A 3-pack of a NEW Battledroid... All new sculpt, and articulated better than other BD we've seen so far. If it came in 3 colors, that would be kind of neat too (Geonosian Red, Trade Fed. cream/white, and there' s a green-ish colored one I've seen also). 3 red droids would be dandy though by me. USE GOOD PLASTIC!
-A Republic Starfighter (Looks to be a Koensayr design similar to the Y-Wing, but seemingly more of an interceptor... Its sketch is in the Clone Wars Sketchbook given out at SDCC). Include either a Clone Pilot or a non-descript Republic Pilot (That'd be cooler I think).
-New Droid Fighter maybe?
-Use the Lt. Faytonni body to make some generic Republic Officers with unique asian/african/Caucasian heads.
-Possibly ATTEMPT (As best as they could) a folding Destroyer Droid that unfolds. I'd take a few inaccuracuracies so long as they weren't HUGE, if it meant it were possible.
-A neimodian SOldier would be neat... They were pictured in the last Insider. I'd take some of those.
A wookie soldier would be dandy too, but that could be coming anyway what with the latest jibba jabba around the net.
-A new Royal Guard would be kind of neat, but one with cloth robes and articulation to kick some booty. No Separatist would try hurting Old Palpy with a super-articulated royal guard nearby to open a can of whoop@$$ on them.
Beyond that though, I'm worried that non-army building type items will not be selling well... The ARC seems to, but look at Anakin... Yoda moves cuz he's Yoda, but even he's starting to go stagnant at this point.
Not a good sign for "Single" figures... Army Builders at least have history on their side as being figures that always move steadily and will eventually clear out.
