I think that completing the vintage figure line is a cause worth getting behind. We're pretty close to that mark now, and it seems like a realistic goal. As long as people can agree about what's really done and what isn't done.
That's the sticky part. Going in order of original release, here's what I view as having still left to do:
Death Squad Commander - just repaint the DST we got in the TAC line and call it a day.
Death Star Droid - we got versions in Gold, Black Chrome and Purple, just give us a vac-metal Silver one and again call it a day
Rebel Soldier (Hoth Battle Gear) - a nice SA Hoth Rebel Soldier in Echo Base colors
Imperial Commander - any Imperial Officer in the Black Uniform will do - heck give us a Commander Praji to match the SSC 12" figure and you're done!
Rebel Commander - this is one of those "debateable" figures. The original Hoth Trooper was close, but it would be great to see them update the Hoth Trenches version of the Rebel Trooper w/a SA body and perhaps rotating in some head variants or just packing the figure with some extra heads, one of them being a white man with bushy moustache.
Bespin Security Guard (both versions) - a nice new SA Bespin Guard w/a running variation of head and ethnicity could easily get these two figures scratched off the list.
Klaatu (Jabba's Palace Guard) - this seems like a no-brainer - we already got the Skiff Guard Version, now just give us the palace guard.
Lumat - this little guy keeps popping up in rumor lists yet we still have yet to get him. I'd say just release him in a two pack with an updated Warok and be done with it. I don't really care if they just update one of the two sculpts from the TAC Ewok 2-pack with his correct fur color.
Imperial Dignitary - I know this figure won't exactly sell in great numbers, but it's always puzzled me that they skipped over this guy and gave us the other two dignitaries instead.
Warok - as stated above, just package Lumat with this guy.
So how many figures is that? Eleven.
Eleven figures is something Hasbro could easily do by spreading them out over three waves, with each wave dedicated to one of the three OT movies.
Some of these eleven even have a chance this year. There is a rumored "Death Star Droid" build-a-droid coming. The Death Squad Commander was in a ANH figure rumor list over on RS back near the end of June.
There is a Rebel Hoth Soldier in the ESB figure rumor list that RS posted back in mid-June.
So if those three are coming, that takes the list already down to eight.
