Any Other Figures You'd Like to See Resculpted?
« on: February 24, 2004, 10:50 AM »
Although I know that sometimes "resculpt" is a dirty word to some collectors, I was curious if there were any main characters, or characters that have already been done, that you would like to see re-released.  Don't get me wrong, I'm with those of you who want all-new characters as well...but at the same time, I look at some of the figures that we have gotten or are getting this year (that have been done before in POTF2), and the difference is unbelievable.  Some examples that I think were (or look to be) done well:

Hoth Luke Skywalker
Jabba's Palace (Jedi) Luke Skywalker
Skiff Guard Lando
Bossk
Dengar
Bespin Leia
Dagobah Luke
Lobot
General Lando
Yoda
"Vintage" OTC Han Solo
...or even POTJ/earlier Saga figures such as Bespin Capture Han, Bespin Luke, Cloud City Chewie, Commtech Stormie, etc...

Even though we have seen these figures before, I don't think we have seen them done this well.  Knowing what Hasbro is capable of, are there any others that you would like to see done (or re-done, as it is)?  Keep in mind, I know many of us would like to see other characters before resculpts...but I was just curious who some of your choices might be.  Here's a few of mine:

Endor Han Solo (possibly one of the "vintage" OTC figures?)
Leia Boussh
Bib Fortuna
R5-D4
Han/Luke Stormtrooper Disguise
Luke/Leia Endor
Grand Moff Tarkin (I don't have the POTF2 one, but it looks a bit buff)
Admiral Ackbar
Ewoks (Teebo is good, but it would be nice to see the rest from the vintage line done)

There's many others I'm sure, those are just off the top of my head....I was curious to see some of your opinions.

With General Lando and Dagobah Luke done, the only one left on my list is:

Admiral Ackbar - with articulated knees and a big chair to sit in.

This is the one wave I'd love to see:
Endor Wave II
- Scout Trooper with Speederbike (Ultra)
Super Articulated, of course. Update the speeder with the proper handles used on the AOTC version. It's an army builder that can also be a way to sell extra speederbikes for...
- SA Endor Luke
Carded and articulated to ride a speederbike.
- SA Endor Leia
Same idea as Luke.
- Chewbacca - Swing to Victory
Articulated arms and a vine w/ suction cup end so simulate the campy Tarzan swing. OK, not a resculpt, but whatever.

Otherwise, I have a pretty short list now of figures that really need updates:

- Snowspeeder Pilot Luke
The Unleashed figure looks so cool, I know that a 3-3/4" version would rock. This is one of my favorite Luke outfits. If they make the figure in the new head-pop style, they could ship a Wedge in no time. Come to think of it, they should do Wedge head/helmet pieces for the Dutch body NOW, and we would later have an instant, perfect custom figure.
- Emperor
He needs to be able to sit on his included throne.
- Royal Guard
I still think the E2 version stinks. I'd even be OK with cloth on this guy.
