Load up the 'barge!
« on: April 3, 2018, 11:13 AM »
Now that the Khetanna has been successfully backed, I'm starting to think about who needs to go in it. BanthaSkull has a pretty good list of the unproduced characters from the Sail Barge, but there are a bunch who are due for a resculpt, need to be reissued.

I'm assuming Hasbro will be releasing and reissuing figures that tie-in to the Khetanna (since that would just be smart merchandising).

• Bib Fortuna (resculpt)
• Tessek (resculpt)
• Droopy McCool (resculpt)
• Max Rebo (resculpt)
• Sy Snoodles - original (I don't think she's singing, but isn't she on the sail barge? At any rate, resculpt)
• Gammorean Guard (Vintage collection reissue)
• Jabba's bartender droid (Reissue, as I don't really want to buy that whole astromech set)
• Elom (I'm fine with the one we have, and I already have a duplicate, score!)
• Ree Yees (Vintage collection reissue)
• Bossk (Vintage collection reissue)
• Wooof (Vintage collection reissue)
• Slave Leia (Sandstorm reissue, but probably won't happen because Disney sucks)
• Shasa Tiel (new)
• Bartender R2 (reissue)
• C-3PO (reissue)
• Boba Fett (reissue, for the one person on Earth that doesn't already have 20 of this guy)
• Jawas (reissues)
• J'Quille (reissue or resculpt)
• Salacious Crumb (reissue)
• Yak Face (resculpt, coming)
• Fozec (new)
• Klaatu - white outfit (resculpt, coming)
• Nysad (reissue)
• Vizam (reissue)
• Geezum (new)
• Yoxgit (new)
• Rayc Ryjerd (new)
• Weequay marksman - the one Luke pulls out the window (new)
• Taym Dren-Garen (new)
• Human on the barge deck (new)
• Human guard with the furry hat (new)

Wookieepedia claims that Hermi Odle is on the sail barge, where he gets into a fight with Pote Snitkin. I think this is probably just some ****** EU store gone awry, or else someone at Wookieepedia is smoking crack. I haven't seen a trace of Hermi Odle on the sail barge, so until I do, I'm going with the idea that he wasn't there.

Don't forget Tessek and Elom in that list! They're both definitely on the barge, hanging around Ree Yees and Bossk.

If you need any of these old figures, get them now, as aftermarket prices for even the POTF2 stuff is surging

All I know is that I hope that Hasbro uses this opportunity to recognize the demand for high quality OT stuff, and that they start releasing a few brand new, never before created denizens and aliens and whatnot.

Yeah I suspect they'll have some releases that tie in. It would be a good question to ask them officially (as JediDefender.com) as a news item.

I really do want a new Tessek and Bib Fortuna.

I'm good with the last Bib Fortuna, but Tessek is near the top of my resculpt list.

You know, Tessek remains one of my favorite figures from the line. They could do a much better job on him I'm sure, but if they didn't, I'd be set. Ishi Tib definitely needs one. Um... Pote Snitkin might be fun nowadays but again, I still like him.

At Toy Fair, they already said there would be items that tie in - Yak Face and Skiff Klaatu being the first two to be shown.  Expect a couple more new/resculpt Jabba goons to be shown during con season for 2019 delivery.

I need the dude who shoots Luke’s hand and fuzzy hat randy quaid.  Human goons are sorely underrepresented.

-Skiff  (TLC Battle of the Sarlacc Pit ultimate battle pack)
-Skiff  (POTF2)


***STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS***

Having had some time to digest this all?  I am pretty good with almost all of the figures that are from the 30AC line forward to the present day.  The exceptions being old sculpts that have been carried forward (Max Rebo comes to mind).  As for the rest of those pre-2007 figures?  Some are okay, but some could stand to be revisited.  I'm glad to see Hasbro addressing Yak Face and the Klaatu skiff guard.  But beyond that, I'd really like something NEW.  That would include:

RESCULPTS
-Han Solo (I'm on the fence here, but it might be worth doing)
-Barada
-Bib Fortuna
-Max Rebo
-Pote Snitkin

REISSUES
-Gamorrean Guards!!!!

SKIFF GUARDS
-Vedain
-Velken Tezeri
-Giliad
-Yotts Oren
-Unidentified human guard on 2nd skiff
-Unidentified mercenary pilot on 2nd skiff

SAIL BARGE
-Geezum
-Yoxgit
-Fozec
-Weequay Guard (Luke needs someone to toss off the Sail barge)
-Weequay on Sail barge main deck
-Unidentified human gunner
-Taym-dren Garen

In a great surge of dorky compulsiveness, I created a list of who was in Jabba's palace, who was on the sail barge, who was on the prisoner skiff and who was on the patrol skiff. If any of you have a Palace setup AND a sail barge/skiff setup, this will come in handy.

Note: some characters move during the battle at the Sarlacc, which is why you see Luke on both skiffs and the sailbarge, and Boba Fett on the barge and prisoner skiff.

I also tracked which characters have figures. If I'm missing something, let me know.

I was thinking the of doing something similar, list-wise. Thanks for saving me the trouble!

I'm Okay with Bib. I know he's got limited articulation, but it's a solid sculpt, IMO.

I'm hoping for a reissue of Jabba's Skiff Guard from 2013. Doallyn I think he is. Never found that one, and the ebay prices...  :P

I have the rest of Jabba's denizens, but I'd buy a Tessek resculpt in a heartbeat. I'd also buy new versions of the Rebo Band, but only the original three. Hey, maybe that's something they could do with HasLab...

I'd really like to see the Rebo band redone as well (preferably with an old school Sy Snoodles). The POTF2 ones are good, but I have a feeling they could really do some amazing things these days.
