I really like the Yoda with the Escape Pod idea. 

Maybe dead Padme in burial dress with her coffin???  Eh, might be to morbid for a toy I suppose.

FX-6 with 2-1B type medic droid and something from the Vader operating room. I am just wanting those 2 made in anyway I can get them!

After seeing a pic of it the other day, I'd really like to see a Yoda w/Escape Pod come our way.  Seems like it would be the right size to make to scale, and could be a neat toy.

Ooh... dead Padme in a casket.  Morbid, but I'd buy it.

I don't see how a toy of Padme in a coffin is any more morbid than a burned Anakin or any figure with removeable limbs. Oh well.

I think it's more morbid because she's actually supposed to be dead

But yep, I'd buy it.

You know how back during the Vintage Line (if you were a kid back then) - you always wondered WHY they didn't put out a slave Leia figure?

Well - I think that dead Padme in casket will be the PT's "Slave Leia" figure - the version of the main female character that will NEVER get made during this run. I think at the time, the idea of a skimpy metal bikini on a female action figure was too much for the early 80s society to handle - flash forward 10 years and it was a-ok.

Now when the line dies in 2008 and then starts up again in 2019 because Jett Lucas is taking the SW mantle from his senile father and making EPs 7, 8 and 9, I could see the new toy company hyping the "Casket" Padme as a NEVER BEEN MADE figure just like they did with Slave Leia and Grand Moff Tarkin when POTF2 came out. Perhaps the society of the future will not mind the idea of their children playing with action figures of dead women!  ::)

Hmmm... I don't see the line dying in 2008.  But, that's an argument for a different thread.   ;)

Good analogy by the way about the Slave Leia.

I don't either - all I was trying to do was establish the same time between the death of the vintage line and the current line and the future "death" of the modern/current line and the birth of the third toy line. That's all...

Personally, much to my wife's dismay, I can see this line surviving AT LEAST another five to six years - especially if a TV series comes and lasts.

My wife is eager to see the line ending too... heh heh but even if it did, I would continue collecting and start going extremely crazy in army building vehicles and making more custom playsets.

I like the escape pod idea...


A deluxe Nute Gunray or other CIS V.I.P. would be cool..that room looks full enough to make a few sets.

I'm thinking we will get some sort of Cinema Scenes again with the Separtist Leaders around a table again... will be really cool if the leaders all have removable heads/various body parts.

One can only hope that such a thing(s) would be released.

Awesome ideas Chewie.  Here are a couple more:

-Palpatine in chair from Invisible Hand (might be better as a screen scene with Anakin just about to kill Dooku)

-Emporer Palpatine with desk and holographic Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader

-Clone Commander with BARC Speeder (saw a still of that somewhere)

-Clone Gunner with turbolaser station

-Battle Droid Gunner with capital ship gun station
"You were entrusted to lead the Republic." - Vote for Ven Zallow from THE OLD REPUBLIC in figure polls!
