Defender Wish Lists 2004: A New Hope
« on: September 29, 2004, 04:05 PM »


Last year we ran an informal poll with your 10 most wanted characters from the current 5 Star Wars Films.  With the DVD release, an OT heavy year in 2004 and most of the plans done until Episode III, I thought it would be a good time to revisit those lists. Here's how it works: You send your Wish List for 10[/i] 3 3/4" Figures to me or post them here, be it new figures, resculpts or even re-releases and I'll tally the votes.  After four weeks of list taking I'll publish the results and we will move on to the next movie.  This time around it is the one that started it all!  SW:ANH, or Episode IV.  If you need help coming up with names check out the Official Sites Databank:  Episode IV.  Have fun and thanks for sending in your lists (remember to limit it to ten)!

Also check out Red6's archive for the very obscurest of the obscure for more choices...

Last Year's Top 10 List (5 for 10):

1. Hem Dazon (Cantina Patron)
2. R1-G4 (Purchase of the Droids)
3. Tonnika Sisters Two Pack (Cantina Patrons)
4. CZ Droid (Seen walking the street of Mos Eisley)
5. Red Leader (Rebel Pilot)
6. General Tagge (Imperial Officer)
7. Bom Vimdin (Cantina Patron)

8. Dannik Jerriko (Cantina Patron)
9. Gold Leader (Rebel Pilot)
10. Feltipern Trevagg (Cantina Patron)

1. R5-D4 (redone with the the pop up motivator, but realistly like the movie)
2. Hem Dazon (Arcona)
3. Davish ‘Pops’ Krail (Y-wing pilot that made the first run in the DS trench)
4. General Tagge
5. Chief Bast
6. Super Articulated Death Star Trooper, Imperial Officer, Rebel Fleet Trooper, or Rebel Tech (don't care which one, just super articulated)
7. Garindan 'Long Snoot' (redone with some removable goggles and a comlink not sculpted to his hand)
8. WED-9-M1 Treadwell droid with movable arms
9. Jawa (redone with articulation and removable bandoliers)
10. CZ-1 or CZ-3 with removable limbs or at least the arm

I would like all the figures from ANH to be made or redone more movie like with super articulation, so I will be happy if any come out as long as they are articulate.

NOTE: Due to the cool GI-JOE value-pack type 2-packs wherein they pack army builders and what have you, I think SW could benefit from similar marketing, but also with 'known' characters as well...

Anyhoo, my top 10 are:

1. Tonnika sisters 2-pack
2. 2-pack of Luke and Leia from the original theater poster (also on the top post, with the revealing Leia and the bare-chested Luke with the raised lightsaber), on a scene base
3. Echo Base 3-pack with Torynn Farr, Major Bren Derlin and Wes Janson (or ANY pilot for that matter)
4. Bespin/Endor Han Solo Deluxe (like a mix between POTJ Bespin Capture & the AWESOME VOTC ANH Han, but with interchangeable 'jacketed' and 'sleeved' arms and vest/jacket outer pieces so you can have ESB or ROTJ version--maybe kill all birds at once and throw on a removable holster so you can make a Han-cicle?); articulated well like the Cantina/Bespin Cap/VOTC Hans, of course  ;D
5. TIE: Neutral pose/articulated Death Star Trooper or Corrected Imperial Officer (neutral arm pose & head from POTJ/Saga version, body and tunic overhang from Admiral Ozzel mold)
6. ANY new Cantina alien(s) as previously mentioned by other members above  ;D
7. ANY Jabba's court denizens, but faves are General Doallyn (all black version, like when Chewie makes his rude entrance into Jabba's place) or Yoxgit
8. lesser-known droid 3-pack from Sandcrawler scenes (treadwell, 'daddy-longlegs', etc...)
9. corrected R5-D4
10. Last but not least, the Bespin Ice Cream Maker Guy...ok, I can forgive them if they instead gave us some army builder like a Rebel Tech or Ceremony guard (or maybe a "deluxe" Tech with the Ceremony helmet and staff--ifI recall the uniforms were the same, or just about anyways).
