There's also a pic of the Arconas (Hem's species) in The Essential Guide to Alien Species.  Very similar to what Scott posted (and probably where the artist caught his info).  I'd be happy with that body.

I would be quite happy with that if Hasbro based the figure on that.   Maybe I should go back and rethink my voting...   Nah...  Hem will make it anyway.

Picking 10 out of all those is tough, especially when we want to include some resculpts that are needed desperately, so I'm not going to count in any resculpts and Imp. Officers with the faith that Hasbro already has some of them on the drawing board by popular demand (i.e. Veers, Tarkin, Tagge, R5-D4, Bib Fortuna, etc)...

1) Torryn Farr
2) Cz-3
3) Tonnika Sisters Two Pack
4) Major Bren Derlin
5) Sergeant Doallyn
6) Luke Skywalker (Endor) *note: MUST have removable helmet & poncho gear!
7) Bom Vimdin (Advose)
8) Hem Dazon (Arcona
9) Chief Chirpa/Lumat
10) Ice Cream Maker Guy

Now, I wonder when Hasbro will answer our call....

FINAL TALLY

Top 10


1. Hem Dazon (ANH)

2. Hermi Odle (ROTJ)

3. CZ-3 (ANH)

4. Chief Chirpa/Lumat (ROTJ)

5. Tonnika Sisters (ANH)

6. Yarna D'al Gargan (ROTJ)

7. Bom Vimdin (ANH)

8. General Veers (ESB)

9. Ice Cream Maker Guy (ESB)

10. R5-D4 (ANH)
11. Major Bren Derlin
12. Romba/Warok
13. Sgt Doallyn
14. Grand Moff Tarkin
15. Biggs (academy)
16. Klaatu (Palace)
17. Wioslea
18. Luke (Endor)
19. Sim Aloo
20. Torryn Farr
21. Owen Lars
22. Zev
23. Luke Skywalker (Frigate)
24. Lando (Smuggler)
25. Moff Jerjerrod
26. General Tagge
27. Bespin Guard
28. Captain Needa
29. Princess Leia (Frigate)
30. Bib Fortuna

I guess its no secret that most of us here prefer never before done figures and beyond that...aliens and droids outrank the humans.  This final voting totally shows that

Also note the poor showing of ESB figures which reflects the sentiment that not much else needs to be done from ESB

Our lists last time got about 40% of the figures done, lets hope we see 15 of these at Comic Con next year :)

Also scoring high but not quite high enough were a number of Vintage Updates and Resculpts.  All of which seem to be very welcome after many years of hearing bitching about resculpts :P

DROIDS
3. CZ-3 (ANH)

HUMANS
5. Tonnika Sisters (ANH)
9. Ice Cream Maker Guy (ESB)
20. Torryn Farr
22. Zev Senesca
25. Moff Jerjerrod
26. General Tagge

15. Biggs Darklighter (academy)

Welp, not ALL the figures I want of course, but many nonetheless.

I'd say Hem, Hermi, Bom, and Veers all are figures I'd love to see...  Veers especially if he's got the removable armor/helmet, belt, and officer's cap.  Excellent.

While I like the list, I think this is a list of figures that would rock if mixed in with a variety of other "types".  Army builders namely, but resculpts of main characters as well have their place I think... 

It's good, and I think all of the top 10 have a strong chance at plastic between 2005 and 2006.  :)

With the Lego SW game coming out, I want a game based on vintage SW figs.

IT be cheesy as all get out, but you could pick from being any of the original 12 figs, and you start from behind the bed, the goal being to ultimately get all the figures into sealed cases and packed away in the closet.  All the while fending off the dog, your big brother who likes to attach firecrackers to you, falling into the sand pit in the backyard, avoiding being sold at flea markets, and you have to try to not  lose your weapons in the sweeper.  You could run through all the vintage playsets as you go around the various levels  house/store/etc.  freeing the other 97 vintage  figures as you go with Yak-face an Snaggletooth being the last 2 you have to find and save.  Maybe you could be fighting off other toy lines like G.I. Joe, transformers, and for the very last "Boss" you have to fight off the Purple pieman!

As a bonus level you have to run back and forth on a desk and dodge rubber bands being shot at you from your little brother.

How's that?  ;^)

Star Wars and toy Collector since 1978(age 7).  currently over 6,500 SW items in my personal collection. Collect modern/vintage and everything in-between ;^)

This is about as good a place as any to post this...

I handed over to Hasbro a copy of the JD Top Ten Polls for each of the movies, as well as this poll for the "best of the best" top ten request list.

They said they'd take that info home, so maybe, just maybe, we will have had a hand in helping them to plan out 2006/2007?   ;)
