Some ideas I'd love to see Hasbro tackle...

-Luke Skywalker:  SA Luke Tatooine (finally), SA Hoth Luke Skywalker, and either SA Endor Luke Skywalker, or SA Death Star 2 Luke Skywalker.

-Leia Organa:  SA Hoth Leia, SA Slave Leia, SA pregnant Leia Organa-Solo from Thrawn Trilogy

-Wookiee Legacy:  SA mid-sized ROTS Wookie Warrior (bigger than Chewie, smaller than preview Wookiee, SA Chewbacca as Snoova, SA Wookiee Body Guard (Thrawn Trilogy)

-Rebel Soldiers:  SA Fleet Trooper, SA Hoth Rebel Footsoldier, SA Endor Rebel Commando

-Imperial Military:  SA Death Star Trooper (grey "Death Squad" Commander deco), SA black tuniced Imperial Officer, SA AT-ST Driver


The Evolutions line is probably one of my favorite items Hasbro's ever created...  The concept delivers 3 figures for a fair price in general, and they're always pretty high quality (so far).  I really feel Star Wars as a long, continuous story, lends itself well to the idea as well...  For instance, I liked getting an NJO Luke in the Jedi Legacy set...  I would've preferred a different Mandalorian in the Fett set, but it's still a cool figure and probably overall makes more sense (though the Mando guy from KOTOR would've been cooler, just on how his character looked).

For the "army building" aspect of things, Hasbro really has a winning format with Evolutions...  I know I still buy the yellow Clone set if I see it...  I mean, a Sandtrooper's always welcome, especially since I'm into non-film dioramas, and the Clone Pilot and Star Corps Clone are welcome additions to the army any time you can get them.

If they ever did that Rebel Evolutions set, I'd be sad...  only at the thought of how I'd afford as many of them as I'd inevitably want.  That'd be an incredible set if done right.

- ROTJ General Airen Cracken (deleted scene)

They already made him in the Saga2 line, he's a pretty good figure who's still at Targets everywhere (at least in my area) warming the pegs.


Yeah, I know who you're referring to and when I saw his picture on the card I was not amused. While it is a good sculpt of someone, it doesn't really capture his likeness in my opinion. In the deleted scene aboard the Falcon he's not wearing gloves while manning the ship's laser guns and he's older than the figure's youthful appearance without the goofy grin and that ridiculous copy-cat raised-shoulder pose. Would you follow that figure into battle? The other "commandos" at least look halfway like tough guys. The black variant is definitely the superior of the two. (As repaints go, I am just barely accepting Pax Bonkik as legitimate if that tells you anything about my fondness for "cloned" variants.) And why waste a cool name like "Airen Cracken"?

So, I guess I should have included "SA, re-sculpt".

Evolution of Diminutive Aliens (AKA Jack Purvis roles, as made mandatory by Kenny Baker's contract):

SA Jawa Chief

SA Ugnaught Chief

SA Ewok Warrior

(plenty of room in this set for lots of oddball accessories, as well, but my favorite would be an alternate Jack Purvis head you can put on any of the figures for a "behind the scenes" look.)

Hasbro needs to stop whatever they're doing, and go make it right now.  With head variant revision waves.

And be sure that the head variants all have the same ball-size, thus enabling you switch them around to have even more troops!

Maybe this is where we need to position our post-Willrow petition activity as a site...  :D

-Rebel Soldiers:  SA Fleet Trooper, SA Hoth Rebel Footsoldier, SA Endor Rebel Commando

This one is a no-brainer as far as Evolutions ideas go.  As for other Evolutions ideas?

C-3PO
-THE PHANTOM MENACE - now with articulation, removable eye, podrace flag
-ATTACK OF THE CLONES - SA version with coverings, Battle Droid head, blaster
-A NEW HOPE - Dirty, well articulated


WOOKIEES - I think there's a solid idea here, but I have a different lineup that I think would be stronger
-Zaalbar - KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC video game
-Tarfful - REVENGE OF THE SITH - SA, proper blaster (The ROTS version wasn't that good)
-Chewbacca - THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK - SA w/ breath mask, tools & bowcaster


BOUNTY HUNTERS
-Zam Wessel - SA, softgoods
-Durge - SA
-Dengar (update, SA)


SCOUNDRELS
-Atton Rand - KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC 2
-Han Solo - THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK
-Dash Rendar - SHADOWS OF THE EMPIRE

I don't see anything wrong with this line-up, I think it's a really solid mix of three wookies.

I think that these Evolutions sets are probably going to be our best bet for getting more figures from the KOTOR era.

That idea for a Wookiee set looks really great. I think something like that would be awesome, and I can see Hasbro doing something like it at some point.

I was referencing some of the other Wookiee Evolutions ideas from this thread.  Personally, I don't see the fascination with Snoova.

oh I had another idea  for a C-3P0 set:
SA ep 1
SA ep2
SA ep5 with removable limbs: head, torso, arms and legs with left leg 'broken' in two pieces so he can hold it like he does on the Falcon as they escape from Bespin.

my son and I were really looking forward to the Jabba's palace 3p0 with pull out eye damage and salacious crumb but since 3p0 doesn't even have the articulated knees, it's just the ep3 repainted with green jabba slime and a silver lower right leg, we were disappointed. I need to get another articulated knees 3p0 since the other one broke due to too much child play ;)
