Defender Wish Lists 2004: The Empire Strikes Back
« on: October 20, 2004, 11:52 AM »


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's the fan favorite The Empire Strikes Back!  SW:ESB, or Episode V.  If you need help coming up with names check out the Official Sites Databank:  Episode V.  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 General Carlist Rieekan
#2 General Maximillian Veers (Resculpt)
#3 Lobot (Resculpt)
#4 Major Bren Derlin
#5 Admiral Kendal Ozzle
#6 Torryn Farr
#7 Zev Senesca (Rogue 2)
#8 Dagobah Luke (Resculpt)
#9 Yoda (Resculpt)
#10 Ice Cream Maker Guy

This was my list as of the last update I made in the original thread:

Quote
1.  Major Bren Derlin
2.  General Veers in Imperial uniform w/ snap-on armor
3.  Lobot resculpt
4.  Captain Needa
5.  Toryn Farr
6.  Zev Senesca - Rogue 2
7.  Dagobah Luke resculpt w/accesseries
8.  Non-buff Snowspeeder Luke resculpt
9.  Black Bespin Guard (Sgt. Edian)
10. Yoda w/backpack, & other accessories resculpt

I'm assuming/hoping the Medical Frigate Luke rumor is true because I would like to see that as well (besides, I only have 2 Lukes on my list!!!)   The Jeremy Bullock Imp. officer and E-3PO were also hard to leave off, as well as ICMG.   Sorry about that, OCB.   Hopefully the Dagobah Luke & Yoda will be made as well and I can add that back in as well as a super articulated Snowtrooper (if I don't chose to add Jeremy Bullock Imp. officer and E-3PO into the list).

So, I choose:

1.   Major Bren Derlin
2.   General Veers in Imperial uniform w/ snap-on armor
3.   Captain Needa
4.   Toryn Farr
5.   Zev Senesca - Rogue 2
6.   Non-buff Snowspeeder Luke resculpt
7.   Black Bespin Guard (Sgt. Edian)
8.   Ice Cream Maker Guy
9.   Luke Medical Frigate
10. Leia Medical Frigate (with kissing action!!!  ;D ;D)

Old list
Quote
1.  Major Bren Derlin, who knows everyone's name on Hoth
2.  Toryn Farr
3.  General Veers pre-Hoth invasion
4.  R-3PO with authentic "Thank the Maker" tatoo on his ass
5.  Ice Cream Maker Guy, just for you Scott
6.  Cloud Car pilot but only if Hasbro releases something for him to fly (hint, hint Hasbro)
7.  Treva Horme, although I've never this alien in the movie this list would be mighty boring without her.
8.  Utris M'Toc, the Star Trek wannabe.  See #7 for comments
9.  non "Saturady Night Live" Lobot

Hmmm, looking at my list, I've only determined nine.  I know who I want, but since I'm too lazy to look up his name, I'll give you the actor's name.  Are you ready?  Why we don't have a figure of him yet, I have no idea.  I present you my #10 choice, the most obscure character played by a well known actor in the OT:

10.  Scott Bakula's Imperial.  That's right, the star of Quantum Leap and Necessary Roughness.  Its gold baby, I'm telling you!  Nobody would pass him up.  Get to work Hasbro.

New List
1.  Major Bren Derlin, who knows everyone's name on Hoth
2.  Toryn Farr
3.  General Veers pre-Hoth invasion
4.  Han Solo with torture chair
5.  Ice Cream Maker Guy, just for you Scott
6.  Hobbie
7.  Treva Horme, although I've never this alien in the movie this list would be mighty boring without her.
8.  Utris M'Toc, the Star Trek wannabe.  See #7 for comments
9.  Zev
10. Lee Phenets, the human ugnaunt

  1.  Luke Medical Frigate
  2.  Lando Smuggler Outfit

  4.  Gen. Veers w/removable armor & helmet
  5.  Capt. Needa
  6.  Luke Snowspeeder Pilot
  7.  Dack Ralter Snowspeeder Pilot
  8.  Darth Vader Holograph
  9.  Ugnaught (new sculpt)
10.  DLX Han Bespin w/Torture Rack

Also, does anyone know the name of the R2 Droid in the rebel hanger?  Not the one that came with the TRU 4-pack.  I believe it had a clear dome similar to the Star Tours droid ???

Well I think that ESB has the least amount of figures that I want so we'll try to get ten.

1. Bren Derlin
2. Luke Medical Robe
3. Gen. Veers
4. Ice Cream Maker Guy

Thats pretty much it.

Last year's list:

  • General Rieekan - First and foremost!
  • Bespin Cloud Car Pilot - Presumably with the Twin Pod Cloud Car!
  • Lando (Smuggler's outfit) - I know, it's an easy custom, but I'm lazy and not very talented so just give it to me...
  • R-3PO (red protocol droid) - See Lando comment.
  • Major Bren Derlin - Just gotta have Cliffy!

    And then the much needed resculpts:
  • Lobot - The Disco era ended long ago, my bald friend...
  • Bespin Leia - Just a more official (and better) version on standard card, rather than the PLC SG one
  • Hoth Rebel Soldier - Needs a more accurate Hoth battlefield update.
  • Dagobah Luke - Toned down from his Aahnold-esque proportions!  Throw in a SG jacket as well.
  • General Veers - Like everyone else has said: A standard Imperial version w/ snap on armor
Guess that'll do it.  Honorable mention to Toryn Farr, Admiral Ozzel, and of course ICMG!

Wow, not too bad!  Considering ESB has the least amount of "interesting" characters to choose from, this flick's running out of potential plastic choices real quick!  So here goes my update:

  • Lando (Smuggler's outfit) - I know, it's an easy custom, but I'm lazy and not very talented so just give it to me...

  • General Veers - Like everyone else has said: A standard Imperial version w/ snap on armor

  • Medical Frigate Luke

  • Medical Frigate Leia

  • Major Bren Derlin - Just gotta have Cliffy!

  • Toryn Farr

  • Hoth Rebel Soldier - Not a freakin' midget this time!  ::)

  • ICMG  :-*

  • Resculpted Snowspeeder Luke (with Zev/Hobbie/Wes/Dack/Wedge head swaps  :D)

  • Bespin Guard (white & black)
Guess that's it.  Not too exciting of a list, and I could honestly live without most/all of these figures if I had to, without feeling "incomplete".  Looks like most of the lists are looking pretty damned similar this time around, so once this handful of characters make it into plastic, that's gonna pretty much be it for ESB, aside from some much needed definitive, super articulated, highly detailed resculpts...   8)

You need to learn how to "cheat" a little Nick, and just ask for some Pilot headswaps, like the rest of us!  That'd give you room for a couple more "wants" on your list!   ;)
