THE PHANTOM MENACE

Basic Figures

-Qui-Gon Jinn & Obi-Wan Kenobi as they are seen below



or like so..



or perhaps like this

-Anakin Skywalker in Pod Racing gear with removable helmet

Super Posable Jedi and Sith are some of the biggest gripes I have with the Prequel figures right now so there are some good choices there Nick

The lack of Episode II Amidalas is more than puzzling as well...there are a bunch of them and most of them may never see plastic :-\

As I wait for the heavy objects to be hurled my way, I have to say that I'd actually, gladly, take a Jar Jar Senator in a normal pose.

Call me crazy, but it's needed.

It's blasphemy not to include Hoth Leia on your list!   :P

I'd like to see Hasbro make new versions of:

- Hoth Leia
- Ceremonial Leia
- Luke in Stormtrooper disguise
- Han is Stormtrooper disguise
- Emperor (the Saga version sucked ass)

Non-core characters:
- Bib Fortuna
- Death Star Trooper
- Uncle Owen
- Hoth Rebel (taller than a midget this time)
