Here are my ultimate 10:

#1. Hem Dazon (Arcona) - come on!  We get EU Booger-man, but NOT an Arcona?  This farce needs to end, and we need an Arcona NOW.

#2 R5-D4 - A resculpt that I'd gladly buy.  That missile launching nightmare must be atoned for...

#3 Bom Vimdin (Advose) - Any Cantina Alien is a good choice by me.

#4 Owen Lars - A nice non-crappy Owen to go with Beru would be sweet and make up for the finger-pointin' Cinema Scene wreck.

#5 Ice Cream Maker Guy - The only ESB to make the list.  Shows off how sucky the ESB list of 10 was I guess...  :P

#6 Chief Chirpa/Lumat - I'd rather have Wumpus the Ewok, but this is a good start...

#7 Romba/Warok - Again, I'd rather have Wumpus the Ewok, but this is a good start...

#8 Hermi Odle - Ephant Mon needs a ridiculously over-sized figure to join him in Jaba's Palace.

#9 Yarna D'al Gargan - Who wouldn't want this fat, creepy dancer?   :-\

#10 Luke Skywalker (Endor) - We need the vOTC version of Jedi Luke with Endor Poncho and helmet!

Buncha pansy-ass Ewok lovers...   ::)

OK, here's my Top Gun list of most needed figures still - the best of the best (hesitantly refraining from the ones that we just need resculpts of)...

  1. Hem Dazon (Arcona) - without a freakin' doubt, this guy's Numero Uno! 
  2. Yarna D'al Gargan - can't go wrong with 3 sets of knockers!
  3. Hermi Odle
  4. Cz-3
  5. Bom Vimdin
  6. Tonnika Sisters 2-pack
  7. Chief Chirpa/Lumat
  8. Sim Aloo
  9. Wioslea
10. Seargent Doallyn

Yep, that should do it!  Now make it happen Hasbro.  We've waited far too long for these suckers!

My priorities are focused on figures that have never been sculpted in the modern era (or ever, for that matter).  In no particular order:

Fringe:
1. Hem Dazon
2. Bom Vimdin
3. Tonnika Sisters (I know it'll never happen, but a guy's gotta hope)
4. ICMG (well obviously he had to be on the list!)

Imperials:
5. General Tagge
6. Captain Needa
7. Moff Jerjerrod
8. General Veers (a resculpt, but a badly needed one)

Rebels:
9. Major Bren Derlin
10. Lando Smuggler (the way Lando was meant to look, he's not a general at heart!)

My list is in no particular order, and based on my favorite characters as well as trying to maintain a mix of obscure aliens, army building fodder, and needed resculpts.

1)  Hermi Odle...  I listed him #1 because he's probably the #1 alien figure I want made.  I want him to come with apples too.  Does anyone else want the apple basket with him?  I just find this fecal-looking feind to be all the more amusing when he's eating apples.  I dunno.

2) Grand Moff Tarkin Resculpt...  While Bib Fortuna and R5-D4 were in the running, I simply don't care for the Bib character that much and R5-D4 I can make myself if i tried, so I'm voting GM Tarkin as the most needed resculpt.  GOOD articulation for neutral poses and those in moments of contemplation. 

3)  Romba/Warok...  If there's one thing Endor needs, it's more Ewoks...  Namely warriors.  Since I feel that painting up a chief Chirpa would make me happy for his figure, then I want Romba/Warok in a warrior 2-pack.  If Hasbro were wise they'd articulate them as well as Teebo and re-release them painted as other warriors (generic) with different weapons and/or hoods.  People may hate Ewoks, but I think they'd sell to the army building crowd to more than off-set any anti-ewok bias.

4)  General Veers...  Removable armor, removable helmet, removable kepi hat, remvable belt/holster, and a holo Vader.  This Veers should be the ultimate Imperial Officer in sculpt, accessories, and I think he should have some good articulation too.  Go all out on this one!  Finally do one of the only Officers Vader didn't kill someactual Justice Hasbro!

5)  Bom Vimdin...  This is THE Cantina alien that I want now that Dannik Jerricho is made.  I like Hem Dazon too, but Bom's a freakish design I've always liked.  Plus his studded tunic thing is freaky too.  Make him as nice as the Cantina wave guys and I'm happy as a clam.

6)  Hem Dazon...  I pick Hem Dazon because he's such an iconic alien.  One of the best designs, the first one you see in the entire sequence, and even if he wasn't so blatantly camera hogging I think he'd still be a memorable and popular choice.  Like Bom, I think Hem should be just as nice as all the Cantina wave figures coming out.

7) Luke Endor...  Soft goods poncho, removable helmet, softgoods (removable) vest underneath, removable belt (with saber hilt that hooks to it).  This should be the ultimate Endor Luke, no holds barred.  Super Articulated to the max.  Perfection for Luke Skywalker.

8 ) Sgt. Doallyn...  If the uniforms are similar enough, I vote for a running change where half are in the white skiff duds and half in the black palace duds.  Articulated as nicely as the Cantina wave...  If Hasbro wanted to get funky, a removable helmet with EU accurate likeness underneath would be sorta neat.  This guy's behind Hermi as one of my favorite Palace freaks.  His voice is too funny, and he got punked...  twice!

9)  CZ-3...  Gotta have one droid, and since I do, I'm picking CZ-3.  The clown droid's been overlooked far too long.  He's so blatantly noticeable all over Tatooine that you really just have to have one in figure form already.  If they included a cheap molded droid accessory with him like Treadwell that came with Beru, that would rock.  Like maybe doing the Mining droid as a 1 or 2 piece accessory to pack in with him.  Seems simple enough to me!

10) Bren Derlin...  As much as I was torn between Torryn Far or Cliff here, I went with Cliff.  I wanted an army builder of sorts on the list, and as a somewhat generic officer for Hoth I decided Bren was best.  Super Articulation is warranted since the body would be hot customizing fodder...  I'd dig a removable hat/goggles too, and a working holster w/blaster pistol for him.  It'd be neat having the full Cliff Claven headsculpt for customizing him in a regular Fleet Uniform, and it would make the figure just a great customizing piece, army builder, and a good figure that many seem to want.

#1   Bom Vimdin (Advose) 
#2   Chief Chirpa / Lumat
#3   Hermi Odle
#4   CZ-3
#5   Major Bren Derlin
#6   Yarna D'al Gargan
#7   R5-D4
#8   General Veers...  Removable armor &  removable helmet
#9   Moff Jerjerrod
#10 Warok & Romba

R5 was the only resculpt I allowed myself from the modern era.

Close, but no cigar:
Hem Dazon (Arcona) - I'm afraid of what Hasbro would come up with for a body
General Tagge - I like the Imperials, what can I say?
Captain Needa - see above
Torryn Farr - would be awesome with another piece (with a different screen) like with Rieekan or one where she is seated.
Klaatu (Palace)
Sim Aloo (very hard to leave off)
