Most Overdue
« on: May 27, 2004, 02:28 PM »
I don't know if this belongs here, because of the PT figures (even though we could see the EP3 preview figures on OTC cards), and I don't think it belongs in SAGA because it's coming to an end.  Anyways, what are the most overdue Star Wars items in your opinions, and why?

How about one vehicle/playset per movie, and one figure/screen scene per movie.  Here's my thoughts, I hope to see your opinions as well.

TPM

Figure - a freaking handmaiden in the orange outfit; Padme wears this outfit a lot

Playset - an ultimate Theed Palace, with two sides; the outside of the palace entrance, and the interior would have the Queen's chamber room along with a Jedi duel area and a hangar for a ship - this is the central location in TPM, why not a playset finally


AOTC

Figure - a Lars family Screen Scene with Owen, Beru and Cliegg; these are very important characters that are being neglected

Vehicle - AT-TE, what a great toy this would make; and the Homing Spider Droid would be pretty nice too


ANH

Figure - A cinema scene with Stormtrooper Luke, Stormtrooper Han, and a circular Death Star control console with an all new Death Star Trooper, these consoles are an icon of the Empire

Playset - Modular Death Star playset for obvious reasons


ESB

Figure - Ultra/Deluxe Hoth Rebel Trooper (final sculpt w/ ultimate articulation and sculpt -no beard or stupid facial expression and not shorter than Leia) and anti-vehicle cannon

Playset - Modular Cloud City playset like the Death Star idea


ROTJ

Figure - Royal Guard, a final kickbutt version with silk robe and ultimate articulation

Vehicle - the mother of all vehicles would double as a hell of a playset; Jabba's Sail Barge

Great ideas Chewie.

TPM: Right on the money.  Padme Handmaiden.  A travesty.

AOTC: Obi Wan Robes / Mace Robes.  The hell?

ANH: A Ben Kenobi Robes that does not suck.  Seems once they 'liven up' the spirit one, this will be corrected.

ESB: A tie between Wedge / Luke Snowspeeder redos.

ROTJ: A Final Duel Jedi Luke that doesn't suck.

I stand corrected Spuffy.  The Snowspeeder pilots we have are abominations.  How about a Screen Scene w/ Snowspeeder Luke, Wedge and Hobbie w/ a refueling machine.  And removable helmets too for these dudes with accurate sculpts and some nice articulation.

Without breaking it down by movie, these come to mind:

Super articulated core Jedi: Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan AOTC
Emperor with Throne, cloth robes, articulated knees (duh, Hasbro)
C3P0 with wooden throne, articulated knees (der, Hasbro)
R5-D4 (Hasbro, you suck)
Uncle Owen AOTC and ANH

Totally agree on the Hoth Pilot updates. Id prefer they do Wedge first so we can finally have him on a real card.

Id cast my vote for an ROTJ Endor Luke thats super-articulated with removable poncho and helmet that doubles as a sweet Final Duel Luke.

You mention that Sail Barge, and damn it reminds me how much I want one. Youre right; it would be the ultimate playset.  Its the USS Flagg of potential Star Wars vehicles. Ive probably gushed about it before here. Id kill for one. Someday, I dream.

Ewoks... and don't go cheap on me, damnit - I want to see Wicket, Logray, and Paploo redone - and I better be getting a Cheif Chirpa very soon. Where's my Ewok Village Playset? Don't stop there - there were two Ewok movies and I expect to see at least two dozen ewoks to be made that held roles in those movies. Did I say I was finished? Well I'm not. There were cartoons, too. So make another two dozen ewoks or so in a cartoony Clone Wars style.

Am I insane? Hardly.

How's about a complete new Ewoks preschool line?

As opposed to a rip off of the Clone Wars style, that'll do. See that it happens.
