Just a thread for "what if" they'd continued the Clone Wars line in the movie style instead of the animated...
Myself, my wants list would've gone like this:BASIC FIGURES
... I'd love to have seen this figure created myself. I'd not even mind if they just made a new head and a cloak for the Droid Chase Padme actually... Something simple like that would be welcome to me.
-Snow Robes Yoda
... A more accurate robed Yoda (with hood up) to replace Frito Bandito Yoda... Be cool if he could holster his saber, but beyond that just a nice poseable Yoda in CW gear.
-Obi in Armor
... Come on, who doesn't want a super articulated Obi-Wan wearing the Clone armor with the robes and stuff? Someone has to kick Deluxe Durge's ass, ya know? And speaking of...
... I'd KILL for a poseable Durge without the armor. What would be extra neat would be if he somehow had the same construction as the tentacles of the Dianoga figure... Poseable/flexible outer material on a wire frame. I'd just ultimately like a nice Durge figure minus the armor since that's how he got the smack laid down on him.
-Battle Damaged Anakin
... Ala the toon figure + great articulation... Something simply representative of him after Assajj did a number on him. For that matter, a non-BD version would be nice since his first CW figure sorta blew.
-Red ARC Sergeant
... Softgoods cape, super articulated body, blaster holster with carbine/pistol weapon, and holographic Obi-Wan for the wrist communicator.
-Blue ARC Trooper
... Same as above but comes with a rifle and shoulder-mounted rocket launcher instead of the carbine and holo accessory.
... Just a re-release of it... Perhaps battledamaged variants and rank variants.
... Nicely articulated Shaggy Jedi...
... Be cool if he came with softgoods robes you could simulate "tearing" off of him for with his battle with Greivous.
... Of course, we're gonna get him anyway, but... Gotta list him.
-Super Poseable Super Battle Droid
... Granted, the line's getting another one with ROTS, but I'd love one with more articulation... Keep the exploding feature even.
-NEW sturdy/poseable Battledroid
... Includes ranged assault rifle, and pulls apart at the torso, arms, legs, and head for battledamage feature.
-Super Poseable Assajj
... Softgoods skirt and robe with really only the legs needing more articulation... I liked the first figure, I'd just take another more poseable one if I could have it.
... I'd dig one of these dudes. The Quarren are such a great species...
... Just a nice version of him from the toon, maybe with a tattered robe or something. A 2-pack wtih the kid from his episode would be neat too (That still rocks as a spoof of the Steelers/Coke commercial from the 70's).
... SA Clone's body with the Pilot's head... Simple, and needed considering that crappy leaning pilot Hasbro dumped out. Why the lean? I haven't a clue.
... One of the techs seen running around the Republic fighters.DELUXE FIGURES
-New Spider Droid
... Pop-apart feature for battle damage, properly scaled barrel... if room for lights, light-up eyes would be neat. Screw the walking feature that doesn't work though. Just an accurate sculpt, poseability, etc.
... No crappy droids though. Just 3 of the basic battledroid, possibly with color variations (green, cream, and red).
-SA Clone 3-pack
... Probably the most logical thing to come out... I don't think anyone's not expecting the SA Clone to come out again, and the army builder format's the most likely. Rank/color variants of course too.
-ARC Squad 3-pack
... 2 blues and a red. Simple.
-Mon-Calamari with Steed
... Maybe a bit big for Deluxe, but I'll just list it here. A Mon Cal soldier with their mounts from under the waves. Very cool IMO.
-Separatist Soldier 3-pack
... Now, this is completely outta thin air, but could really kick much butt. The Jedi 3-pack was completely fabricated after all! Anyway, make a 3-pack of 1 SA Neimodian soldier, 1 SA of the blue separatist aliens, and 1 SA NEW Geonosian Warrior or someone else... Very cool to me.
-IG Lancer Droid w/Bike
... A poseable droid with a bike, and lance. Very cool, and I'd buy this up in droves.
-Mine Layer Droid
... Similar in style to the Spider Droid. Nothing flashy... A feature that threw little mines may be neat, but not important.
... Re-release with a Battledroid Pilot and MUCH more stable nose prongs... Maybe molded around something more sturdy so they don't sag.
... A cool step towards the ARC one coming up in ROTS. Kind of like seeing the X-Wing and Y-Wing and such... Shows variety in what the Republic uses.
... The small silver ship Amidala uses in AOTC and the CW toons... It's small, so it's doable to-scale I think. Pack the droids in, I'd be all over that.
-New Droid Starfighter
... A single GOOD, properly scaled Droid fighter that can unfold for walking. Pop-off wings would be neat for battle-damage of course.
Basically, I'm bored and was just thinking out loud how I really am sad that the movie-accurate CW line has faded away to the cartoon line.
The toon line is ok, and I see people's desire for it, but I'd sooner have things compatible with the basic movie lines than things completely separate of them. Then again I'm a big EU fiend too... Tons of stuff from EU I'd like.
As much as it surprised me, the CW line seemed to do well at retail though, even the guys like Bandito Yoda, so I'd like to have seen the line continued so it's compatible with the film figures and all.
