Dammit.  It's been well over a year now since I posted this list, and I've gotten exactly ONE of these figures, with absolutely ZERO solid rumors or news on any of the others potentially coming.  This sucks!  This was supposed to be the year of POTJ II, and I'm starting to get pretty damned disappointed with some of the glaring exclusions from this year's line...   :'(

There's still another 2 - 3 unannounced waves (at least one of which will be Prequel figures) rumored to be coming prior to the Ep. 3 onslought next year, so Hasbro damned well better finally get a freaking Cantina wave out already!!!  What the hell's the hold up with these guys?!?   >:(

Well, if that Jawa.Com list is accurate, you'll soon have 3 more knocked off your top 10!!

While mostly visually boring, this movie contains some really neat-o undone characters and represents the bulk of my list here:

1. Bom Vimdin
2. Wioslea
3. R1 Droid
4. Hem Dazon
5. Dannik Jerriko
6. Tonnika Sisters Two Pack
7. Colonel Wulf Yularen
8. Braniac
9. Feltipern Trevagg
10. Red Leader

And I realize the Tonnika's have a slim to none chance of ever being done but I can dream can't I???

A New Hope
1. Bom Vimdin
2. Wioslea
3. Hem Dazon
4. R5-D4 Resculpt
5. Colonel Wulf Yularen
6. Braniac
7. General Tagge
8. CZ-3
9. Tarkin Resculpt
10. Tonnika Sisters Two Pack

...my ANH 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  8)
  • Myo - One eyed alien freak  8)
  • 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?  8)

Another 2 down, but still a lot to go!   >:(

We could use a Sauran from the cantina.

I have the spelling wrong Matt.  The alien I am talking is Saurin, my goof.  He was also seen in Cloud City and on Jabbas barge. I believe the one at the cantina was a smaller version.




Heres a great visual site for all the characters we will probably never see :P

TWO Saurin were in the Mos Eisley Cantina, Sai'torr and Hrchek Kal Fas:



I agree, they are very cool aliens and different enough from Bossk to warrant a figure.

One I'd like to add to the list, and I guess it doesn't necessarily have to be from "A New Hope", but I'd really like to see a newly sculpted, nicely done, single carded Wedge Antilles.  I never got the earlier version, and sculpting/painting methods have come quite a ways since then, and is one figure I'd definitely want Hasbro to produce before its all said and done.  He's a pretty big supporting character, and at least significant to the overall OT storyline.  Hopefully we'll see a new one, eventually.

I do like the Saurins...they are pretty easy customs though with a heap pop and swap with Bossk and Ponda Baba and a few strokes of paint.  I think it might be a little tall but its good enough for me...Its good enough for me....Its good enough, ya ya ya ya ya ya

Yeah... I did that.   :-*

I used two cheap clearance Bossks from the PotF2 green card blowouts to craft my two custom Saurin.  One, I did just what you said Scott, I used a Ponda Baba body and painted him (black pants, ugly green/yellow jacket like in the picture.  

The second, to be a bit different, I used a Ep1 Rune Haako for the body and painted up the robes.  This gave the second one a different look, with a bit of a difference in height and head position.

BUT, I'd still like an official Hasbro version though.

Jeff

ps.
I really should get off my lazy ass and finaly take some snap shots of my custom figures now that I have a digital Camera...  maybe I'll do that tonight with a feature on my Cantina Customs?

This is from last year so its not up to date with what I got but it shows them flanking BoShek

I believe they have regular hand too which is why the Ponda thing works so slick
