Whittling the choices down to ten was a bear. I'd hate to be Star Wars product manager for Hasbro. (That's a bald-faced lie.)

That Sandcrawler idea just came to me. Must be the creative environment I'm posting in. I think I'll stay. ;)

Slightly OT, I have sketches I did of a Sandcrawler carrying case that would be perfect for an exclusive figure or two. It would be sculpted, of course, but double as a foldout play environment similar to the Episode I Artoo-Detoo carrying case. Dang that was a fun case. I bought two.

Maybe we could have a Top Ten ANH Vehicles/Playsets list some time?
Post sober.

You should throw your sketches and any other cool SW artwork up in our Fan Art forum for us all to ogle at!  I'd like to see it...   :)

2. Ben Kenobi hut playset with Ben, Luke and break apart 3P0.
3. Yavin4 playset with control room/hanger

8. Jawa multipack with chief and 'restraining' jawa and misc jawas
9. Tantive 4 playset ship with escape pod, Vader entrance and leia capture area
10. Mos Eisley playset with connecting cantina pieces and docking bay 94 for a falcon

I love obscure aliens and droids, so my picks reflect that:

After #1, these are in no particular order:

1. Hem Dazon - why the first alien seen in the Cantina hasn't been made yet is beyond me
2. Bom Vimdin
3. Dannik Jerriko
4. Elis Helrot
5. Feltipern Trevagg
6. Tonnika Sisters
7. Myo
8. Wioslea
9. CZ-3
10. R1-G4

OK, after many days of deep and serious contemplation on the matter (as well as a significant amount of time spent at Red 6's), my Top 10 list is finally ready to go!  Forget everyone else's lists, this is THE list that Hasbro should be working off of.  Period.  End of story.  JediMAC has spoken.  So without further ado...

  • Hem Dazon (Arcona) - The classic Cantina alien that started it all!
  • Tonnika Sister(s) - I won't cheat and demand a 2-pack like EVERYONE else...
  • Bom Vimdin - Cool lookin' Cantina alien
  • Feltipern Trevagg (Gotal) - Ditto
  • Myo - One eyed alien freak
  • Elis Helrot (Givins) - The inspiration for the ghost from Scream
  • Wioslea - This poor guy probably never gets the ladies, despite his cool new Landspeeder
  • CZ-3 - Gotta agree with Morgbug: Sexy eyes for a droid
  • WED15-1662 Treadwell Droid - The cool spider lookin' droid with more arms than anyone but FX-7
  • R1-G4 - Can this majestic statue of a droid actually move?
That should do it!  Kudos to the close runners up who just missed out on the Big Dance: Brainiac, Red Leader Garven Dreis, and Colonel Wulf Yularen!  Better luck next time fellas...

Just checked the other lists, and Mikey D is right on target with his choices!  As long as Mike can take a Treadwell Droid instead of Dannik Jerikko, he should be a happy man, assuming Hasbro does what it's told, and uses MY list!   8)   ;)

I must say that some folks around here are getting a tad bit overzealous with their choice of "10" figures though.  This ain't 10 Cinema Scenes or dioramas guys!  Gotta narrow a few of those lists down, eh.   :P

Hasbro should just package the treadwell droid with Dannik and we'll both be happy.  It can be from the ultra rare never before seen footage of when Dannik stopped by Luke's place for a smoke.  ;)

Just to respond to CloneF13Y35  list...

They made a Ceremonial Leia in the POTF2 Princess Leia Collection 2-Packs. She came with Ceremonial Luke. With all of your 'Ceremonial' figures, I can't believe your are leaving out the emaculately groomed Ceremonial Chewbacca! Come on everyone! Let's give it up for the clean and well-groomed WOOKIEE!!!

The results are in!


1. Hem Dazon (Cantina Patron)

2. R1-G4 (Purchase of the Droids)

3. Tonnika Sisters Two Pack (Cantina Patrons)

4. CZ Droid (Seen walking the street of Mos Eisley)

5. Red Leader (Rebel Pilot)

6. General Tagge (Imperial Officer)

7. Bom Vimdin (Cantina Patron)

8. Dannik Jerriko (Cantina Patron)

9. Gold Leader (Rebel Pilot)

10. Feltipern Trevagg (Cantina Patron)

I also love showing this picture to people.  Hasbro will have to take a lot of creative license when it comes to making Hem as he never really did have a body

A bummer indeed.  Oh well...  Maybe I'll start a larger campaign for her as one of Jabba's dancers when the ROTJ list rolls around...  Thanks for your support though B!  Nice to see you actually getting your vote in on time for a change!  

Bummer also that I only got 6 of my 10 choices!  What's up with that?!   :'(  How can folks not want that sweet Treadwell Droid and that freak lookin' Wioslea?!  Boring ol' human characters...  Guess I can't get all of my Cantina aliens in one fell swoop, huh?

Bring on AOTC!
