Nice list Scott... I'd like to see a couple more too -

- Mrs. Organa w/ baby Leia

- Medical Droid w/ both babies

Babies!  We need figures of babies!   :D

I'll assume we'll be getting clones until the end of time. That's fine, if they could figure out that 2 per case will never, ever be enough.

I'd like these:

Coruscant Rehabilitation Chamber
FX-6
2-1A  (I don't know what his name really is, but the 2-1B stand-in)

Galactic Opera
Mon Calimari Dancer
Baron Papanoida (Yes. Really.)

Palpatine's Arrest
SA Mace Windu
SA Palpatine (red robes)

Dude, we got that kickass Battle Arena set with them in it.  What more could you want?!?   :P

Sarcasm aside, and believe me when I say this comment even makes me roll my eyes at myself, I actually like the Palpatine that comes in the Battle Arena.  As cheesy and statue-like as it is, I don't think it's that bad a figure. 

Okay, so it's bad, but it's still neat to look at in all its crappy glory, unlike the Mace Windu, Anakin, Dooku, and Obi-Wan figures in the BAs.   :-\

As for what I'd like to see, I'm not up on the ROTS characters (I've managed to mostly stay away from spoilers), but here's what I would like to see:

-More Clones (this goes without saying and works on the assumption that Hasbro will actually figure out their case assortments)

-More Padmes, from ROTS, AOTC, or TPM.  Seriously.  There is no excuse as to why she keeps getting short-changed.

-Palpatine in the robes from the 12" Darth Sidious doll.

-The other two medical droids from the Vader construction scene.

-Queen Organa with Leia

-Beru Lars with Luke

-Anyone else with the last name Lars (and if they have to do OT figures, please redo Owen)

-Grievous' Bodyguards (I'm probably alone on this, but based on the shot of one in the trailer flanked by BDs and the few still photos I've seen of them with Grievous, it looks as if the current version is smaller in both height and width when compared with the photos/footage.  Plus, it'd be cool to have a staff that had the glowing effect on the ends of each thing too.)

Yes, for sure! I'd like an improved version that better addresses articulation and has an improved paint job. I can't be certain, but it looks like there might be paint variations on these guys in the movie.

It also needs a soft goods cape. It would make a world of difference on the guard, even more so if it is more poseable.

- Emporer Palpatine - SA, Senate Chamber Duel
- Padme Amidala - bun hairdo

I notice that no one mentioned a carded Stas Allie or Barriss Offee in the ROTS line ???


Isn't Stass Allie coming on a BARC speeder bike or something like that?  Didn't we see her at C3?

I honestly don't remeber seeing that, Brent. I remeber the clone evolution set though. :)

It was there.  Check out EE's listing for wave 3 of the Deluxe figures.  You can see pics there.

Maybe you blocked it from memory.  ;)

The high-res pics that were circulated this week make it look like they did a fairly good job of making her less pre-posed than the other pack-ins have been, but she is certainly nothing more than a figure with very, very basic articulation based on the images. She won't mix in with standard figures from the ROTS line, that's for sure.

I don't get why they bother doing obscure Jedi in the Deluxe line if they insist on making the figures sub-par to fit the pricepoint. I'd have preferred they do a C2 Stass on a regular card. Maybe that will still happen.

Yeah Stass is coming with the Barc, but I was talking about a seperate carded version. One with articulation.

Lots of great ideas here, and if we are getting more "ROTS only" assortments, I like the choices everyone has come up with.  Specifically....

Collection 1
Darth Vader (Anakin Version with hood and SA and Bad Ass Eyes)
Nute Gunray
Commander Appo
Obi-Wan Kenobi (SA)
Commander Cody
Mace Windu (SA w/ Soft Goods)
Red Shocktrooper
Commander Gree
Green Decoed Trooper
BARC Trooper

Collection 2
Padme (w/Bun Hair)
Commander Fox
Neimoidian Pilot
Owen Lars
Coruscant Firefighter
Beru Lars w/ Luke
2-1B Med Droid

There are a lot more possibilities, and I hope that we see lots of the multi colored clones and commanders.  Someone earlier mentioned the Evolutions assortment, and I really think that there is a lot of potential in that line.  As has been discussed further, I think we could get nice, neutral, well articulated figures that we have been hoping for for quite some time:

Obi-Wan Kenobi - TPM, AOTC, and ROTS
Padme - Pick 3, lots of potential there
C-3PO - TPM, AOTC, ROTS or ANH (articulated knees?)
Jedi "Heroes" - Qui-Gon Jinn, Mace Windu, pick one other Jedi (most of the ROTS versions have been quite nice, so it is probably a matter of opinion.  Hasbro will probably stick a Yoda in there, and I'd be ok with that if it meant getting great versions of Mace and QGJ.

More options I could list....but this isn't the Evolutions thread I guess :P.

since we're having the toned for kids vader on medical table, I wonder if we'll get burial padme or other naboo citizens like the new queen (or the ep2 queen jamilla for that matter) plus a new sio bibble.
