Right Next Door To Hell lyrics
I'll take a nicotine, caffine, sugar fix
Jesus don't ya git tired of turnin' tricks
But when your innocence dies
You'll find the blues
Seems all our heroes were born to lose
Just walkin' through time
You believe this heat
Another empty house another dead end street
Gonna rest my bones an sit for a spell
This side of heaven this close to Hell

Right next door to hell
Why don't you write a letter to me yeah
I said I'm right next door to hell
An so many eyes are on me
Right next door to hell
I got nowhere else to be
Right next door to hell
Feels like the walls are closing in on me

My mamma never really said much to me
She was much too young and scared ta be
Hell "Freud" might say that's what I need
But all I really ever get is greed
An most my friends they feel the same
Hell we don't even have ourselves to blame
But times are hard and thrills are cheaper
As your arms get shorter
Your pockets get deeper

Right next door to hell
Why don't you write a letter to me yeah
I said I'm right next door to hell
An so many eyes are on me
Right next door to hell
I never thought this is where I'd be
Right next door to hell
Thinkin' time'll stand still for me

Not bad kids just stupid ones
Yeah we thought we'd own the world
An gettin' used was havin' fun
I said we're not sad kids just lucid ones yeah
Flowin' through life not collectin' anyone
So much out there
Still so much to see
Time's too much to handle
Time's too much for me
It drives me up the walls
Drives me out of my mind
Can you tell me what this means...huh?

A few days left to vote here...

I've thought about having a OT showdown of the top 10's of the three movies, pick 10 of the top 30

We'll see on that...voting closes Wednesday 1PM Central

2. Maj. Bren Derlin (Echo Base Officer)
3. General Veers (Imperial Officer)
4. Leia Medical Frigate

How cool would these be:

Hoth Wave September 2005

Major Bren Derlin
General Veers
Snowspeeder Luke (Zev running change, Wedge Running Change, Hobbie Running Change)
Torryn Farr
Captain Needa

Bespin Wave January 2006

Bespin Guard (white, black and alien)
Ice Cream Maker Guy
Lando Smuggler
Luke Medical Frigate
Leia Medical Frigate

Some of those figures would be pretty easy to do with existing molds (throw a robe on VOTC Luke, swap heads on VOTC Leia, Lando Head on Han Body, Jumpsuit from AT-ST and new head for ICMG)

Most of the figures though besides Veers and Derlin don't inspire a whole lot of Me Wantee factor that I see, I think a lot of people are satisfied with their Empire Strikes Back Modern Collection

That works perfect for me... how about a running change on Mjr Derlin with new headsculpts including Coach, Norm, & Sam?

Seriously, if they put out your list, I'm not sure I'd need another ESB figure other than a accurately sculpted & painted probot and  army builders, such as Jesse Jame's suggestions:

Super Articulated Hoth Footsoldier...  This is a must considering all previous attempts.  head variants, removable hat, working holster w/sidearm, and rifle.  Head variants would be nice (bearded, clean shaven, and a black dude).

Super Articulated Imperial "Snow" Stormtrooper...  If the Rebs are sporting a SA trooper so should the Empire.  Cloth face-mask, cloth skirt, working holster with blaster rifle.  Just a nice vanilla Snowtrooper with tons of articulation.

Hoth Technician...  Good articulation, removable techs cap (with the ear flaps), tools, etc.  Articulation like VOTC Leia or something could work.

Imperial Commander...  Generic, super or VOTC Leia style articulated figure with removable officer's kepi hat (with head variants).  Black uniform variant and grey uniform variant.  One head has to be Jeremy Bulloch as the Officer in ESB.
