Vintage Figures Which Have Not Been Updated
« on: January 23, 2003, 11:53 AM »
Hasbro better make these figures or else!

For Sure
1)General Madine
2)Klaatu Palace version
3) Imperial Dignitary
4)Chief Chirpa
5)Lumat
6)Romba
7)Warok
8)Cloud Car Pilot
9)Nikto
10)Barada #2 (Kithaba)

Debatable
1)Blue Gonk
An exact replica of the Lars family Power Droid was not made with the Power Droid provided with the jawa
2)Bespin Guard black
The correct ethnicity has not been released yet, however an Asian and White Guard have been
3)Rebel Commander
A figure similar to this was released however it was not based on the vintage figure
4)Imperial Commander
An exact likeness of a Tuniced Officer has not been released, the POTJ version was in a jumpsuit.
5)Death Squad Commander
Another in the was released but in an alternate uniform series
6) B-Wing Pilot
See above about costume changes

Rumor Mill

The rumor mill has these figures as possibilities :  

1) General Madine
Basic Release maybe later this year, sounds like it won't happen though
2)Cloud Car Pilot
Possible Target Exclusive Pack-In???  
3) Imperial Dignitary has been rumored for later this year as well

I'd like them all, but the three at the top of my list would be:

  • Imperial Dignitary
  • General Madine
  • Cloud Car Pilot
...just because they're the only ones that have had no other modern era figures made that even remotely resemble them.  I'm fairly confident that we'll be seeing these three from Hasbro at some point down the line though, so I'm not too worried.  Just gotta be patient...

I'd add the Nikto and Barada to the debatable list.  Also, the Death Squad Commander was intended to be the Death Star Trooper.  It wasn't until POTF2 that the vintage error was corrected.

There are two distinct Barada and Nitkos seen in the Skiff scenes, while it is a technicallity an exact likeness has not been released...same goes for the Death Squad Commander, if you look at the vintage cardback the guy wears a grey tunic instead of a black one as represented in the vintage figure, so its debatable...

Covered most of them....
Lucky for you, you covered my ewoks :), cause I was ready to throw some bold text and unhappy smilies (just thought of that, do you call it a smilie if it's not smiling?) if ya didnt!

I'd like to see a Princess Leia, actually, cause I can't think of anything that really looked too much like her that had any bit of articulation.

For the record, Chief Chirpa is rumored to be coming out 3rd Quarter (whatever 3rd quarter means).

Good question regarding the smilies... hehe

The term "quarter" is a buisness term that refers to each month by 3's. So January, February, and March are the first quarter. April, May, and June are the second quarter months. July, August, and September are the third and the fourth is October, November, and December.

Other than General Madine on top, I'm not sure I could put an order to those I want.  I would have to lump the ewoks and the Imperial Dignitaries as a tie for 2nd.  The B-wing pilot is the only one I really could care less about, but I would still buy it.   I am by no means a completist, but depending on the likeness of the figure, I would buy all of them.   I wouldn't be all that excited about the Cloud Car pilot, either, without the rumored Cloud Car.

3)Lumat
4)Romba
5)Warok
6)Nikto
7)Barada #2 (Kithaba)

7) Imperial Dignitary Costume Change
8) Blue Snaggletooth  People seem to want this, I don't Zutton and Takeel fit the bill IMO
 
This is dependant on RA-7 coming with the Sandcrawler

Chief Chirpa is still on the Rumor List :-*

Final Vintage Predictions
« Reply #10 on: July 18, 2005, 01:34 AM »
It seems we get a few more never before re-done sculpts based on vintage figures every year. The last one was the Cloud Car Pilot. Who do you think will get the ugrade they've been longing for?

I think it's a strong possibility we'll get Derlin AKA Rebel Commander in the hoth set and at least one new Ewok in the Endor set.

Too bad Klattu from Jabba's palace is already out of the running. :(

I don't know much about vintage, but by my reckoning, these are the remaining ones:

AT-ST Driver (?)
Chief Chirpa
Lumat
Rebel Commander (Derlin)
Romba
Warok

Then there's a few that have been released as multipacks, exclusives, or vehicle pack-ins but never solo carded in general release:

A-Wing Pilot
B-Wing Pilot
AT-AT Commander/ General Veers
AT-AT Driver
Droopy McCool
Klaatu
Max Rebo
Nikto
Paploo
RA-7 Death Star Droid
Sy Snootles

Been released a couple of times.  The same sculpt was released 2 times in the POTF2 line (Green Card, Freeze Frame).  As well as the Imperial Forces 4-pack at TRU.

Merging an old old topic but one of my life long passions is to see all of these done or redone to match the vintage coutnerparts.  I want the following 6 for sure and the

The Ewoks are a stretch for me, the pack ins that have come fit the bill fine for me on Lumat Romba and Warok but I wouldn't mind seeing more them

For Sure
1)Klaatu Palace version
2)Chief Chirpa
3)Lumat
4)Romba
5)Warok

Debatable
1)Blue Gonk
An exact replica of the Lars family Power Droid was not made with the Power Droid provided with the jawa
2)Bespin Guard black
The correct ethnicity has not been released yet, however an Asian and White Guard have been
3)Rebel Commander
A figure similar to this was released however it was not based on the vintage figure

4)Imperial Commander One was done in a different costume
5)Death Squad Commander One was done in a different costume
6) B-Wing Pilot  One was done in a different costume
7) Imperial Dignitary One was done in a different costume
8)Barada #2 (Kithaba) One was done in a different costume
9)Nikto One was done in a different costume
