Thanks for the history lesson, Jeff.  I've heard some of this stuff, but some regarding the cantina set, I hadn't.  I think the Star Whores/Disney sale might have taken the Tonnikas off the table, but I often wonder if the sisters would show up in the Mandoverse as something cool/different than what that "joke" picture that someone did in the 70s, would that change their mind?  No idea, but I think if we get a cantina Haslab, this will be the time we get them.  If not, I don't think we'll never getting them.

It's weird to think that we got Oola, Hutt Slayer Leia, Slave Owner Watto, and drug dealer Elan Sleazbaggano once upon a time, but that was before Disney took over.

Tonnika's would be a PERFECT Pulse exclusive...

Somewhat similar to the Sabine and Chopper set that finishes off the Ghost... Not included with the Cantina, but available on Pulse for a limited time.

I feel like this is the only chance we get the Tonnikas.  If it doesn't happen with the Haslab (or a coinciding figure-pack announcement), then they're never going to happen.

I also hope that we get a Kenner retro paint scheme of the 4 cantina denizens like Jeff suggested... maybe even a blue Snaggletooth version.

As for Nick's list, I don't think you can go wrong with any of those suggestions.

I ordered right before I posted here on May 4 and I had to pay for shipping.

Same - there were no free shipping codes when I ordered on May 4 other than SHIPMAGIC (free shipping over $75 total).

Weird.  I ordered same day and got free shipping.  There were two codes: SHIPMAGIC and some other one that offered Free Shipping on any order (I don't recall what the code was)... maybe it was FREESHIPPING?!

I recall someone posting about the free shipping, but it was confusing because I put the wrong code in first and it asked me to add more to cart, so I went back to verify and realized it was a different code.

EDIT: I was just happy these were $14.99.

At least we are finally getting ONE beast that was on most lists (two if you count the little loth cats.)

Yeah... but the Loth-cat hardly has any articulation, so I'm sure some would like one with a bit more.

Seriously?   This is why I always order right away even though I overpay a lot.

I was surprised they offered free shipping without any minimum limit that day.  That was nice. Otherwise, I would have passed.

I would have like to have bought more for custom droids since they don't have droids at the parks or Disney Springs anymore, but it is what it is.

I think I'm just mentally exhausted from constantly voting for things that are never going to get made in this day and age.

I kind of feel this way about a lot of figures anymore that people would love to see.  Sometimes I wonder if Top ## lists or March Madness contests even matter to Hasbro.

Forgot about this...

The Armorer's Forge will make a neat background piece.  I'm just curious what the pack-in figure will be.

Steve - you know its just going to be a slightly repainted (or straight up repack) Armorer figure.

Probably... if that's the case, I'd just prefer them to skip the figure and save us 15ish dollars.

Well, the Shriek-Hawk Training Team is a group of Mandalorians from the Nevarro Covert.  Should we bump them off the list and advance the next choice?

I watched this kind of late last night and figured I'd watch part of it and finish today since it was a longer episode.  Surprisingly, it flew by.
I was like Nick in the beginning, but overall, I enjoyed the show.

I'm surprised that Snowtroopers always seem to rank low on these lists.  I feel like that's one that could use a new fresh SA TVC sculpt.

That is true and something I don't really consider when choosing. I know they've been done, so I don't think about them... but that wide stance!

Plus, only 5 people took part in this round so maybe they'd be higher up if more people would have participated?

Looks like we crossed off one of the #1s last year with the upcoming Blurrg as well as the Loth-Cat, though it didn't make the top 10.

What are your 10 most wanted Creatures/Beasts you'd like to see in The Vintage Collection?

The rules are simple: post your wishlist for the 10 3-3/4" figures or send them to me.  At the end of the month, Ill tally up the votes and well move on to the next theme.

Have fun!

JUST A REMINDER THAT WE'RE COUNTING ONLY THE TOP TEN THIS ROUND!
