Title: Defender Wishlists 2009: A New Hope
Post by: Scott on May 28, 2009, 12:13 PM
(http://www.jedidefender.com/news/images/3-03/anh.jpg)

For the last couple of years we ran an informal poll with your 10 most wanted characters from the current Star Wars Films.  Continuing the tradition and trying to finish up before Comic Con 2009, I thought it would be a good time to revisit those lists. Here's how it works: You send your Wish List for 10 3 3/4" Figures to me or post them here, be it new figures, resculpts or even re-releases and I'll tally the votes.  After four weeks of list taking I'll publish the results and we will move on to the next movie.  The Original Star Wars, to most people, Episode IV: A New Hope is now up.   If you need help coming up with names check out the Official Sites Databank:   Episode IV (http://starwars.com/databank/appearance/ep4.html).  Have fun and thanks for sending in your lists (remember to limit it to ten)!

Here are my picks for this year, mostly much needed resculpts. I really want to phase out the remnants of POTF2 era figures.

 1. Ponda Baba
 2. Doctor Evazan
 3. Bom Vimdin
 4. Lak Sivrak
 5. Labria
 6. Leia Yavin cremony
 7. Rebel Fleet trooper
 8. Uncle Owen
 9. Admiral Motti
10. Grand Moff Tarkin

I would have the Tonnika Sisters but there are pretty much off limits. Now if we get the Bonnika sisters, the cousins that look close to them maybe, just mayber Hasbro can make them.

Well I was sorta 4 out of 10, my old #5 is going to be a Legends release for ESB, #6 is coming out with his ship, and #7 was released in a Battlepack....

Post by: Jesse James on May 28, 2009, 10:22 PM
I actually got a couple last year which is odd...  I'm wanting some humans which I know aren't the most popular, but I have to stay true to what I would like.  We've gotten lots of aliens, so I'd like to see some background Humans get a chance if they stood out a little bit.

Here's my '09 list:

1 )  Rebel Fleet Trooper Resculpt

2 )  Grand Moff Tarkin Resculpt

3 )  Yavin Rebel Technician Danz Borin (White Space Suit Dude)

4 )  Bom Vimdin

5 )  Black Tuniced Imperial Officer (any of the ones who had lines in ANH would be nice)

6 )  WED-15 Droid Saurrin (either of them)
 
7 )  Wioslea  Tizvizzit (or how ever you spell it)

8 )  Garrouff Lafoe (Cantina Snitch)

9 )  Jabba's Human Guard 1 (Special Edition, Tall Pointy Hat Guy)

10)  Jabba's Human Guard 2 (Special Edition, Large Bushy Bearded Guy)

But for the love of all things holy can I get my Fleet Trooper already?  :)  I'd love a nice, fairly generic trooper to load up an army with, and take to the shelves!

My 10:

Super Artiucaltion by my definition:  Ball Jointed shoulders, elbows and knees, swivel wrists and ankles, ball socket head and regular waist, hip and leg articulation....

In no particular order:  But all SUPER ARTICULATED

Death Star Trooper Detention Block style, with Jack boots and DH17 blaster and removable helmet and multiple head scultps in the same package
Imperial Officer Detention Block Style, with Holster and removable hat
Tie Fighter Pilot SA not just one arm, one wrist and good knees
Rebel Fleet Trooper (multiple heads in the same package like Concept Fett and Concept Vader)
Ulitmate Tatooine Luke, SA and good scale.
Ceremonial Han Solo SA
Captain Antilles Resculpt with correct colors and SA (maybe multiple heads and just call him Rebel Officer)
X Wing Pilot (on an Average Pilot Frame, not Dutch Vander) SA of course
Old Obi Wan SA..the VOTC one does not cut it since ROTS Jedi came out
Tarkin, SA and updated.







Not sure why we would do OT wishlists....pretty much ANYTHING OT would be on my wishlist this year...

Ok out of last year,  I got 1.

So replace Old Obi Wan with Walrus Man

If you count the Tie Pilot from the Evo Pack then give me Dr. Evazan too.

Yup the world is coming to an end, I put Cantina characters on my list.

I think to put the Tonnika sisters on the list is a waste of a space.  Hasbro has already mentioned, ad nauseaum, that they won't produce them! I'm also going to omit Ponda and Evazan because they all but confirmed them.

Here's my list, then:
1) Uncle Owen
2) Saurin
3) Yerka Mig
4) Garouf Lafoe
5) Mos Eisley citizen (preferably the woman with the striped robe)
6) Black tunic Imp officer

I've seen nothing concrete at all that says the RFT is coming anytime soon, nor Ponda or Evazan.  The "rumors" around the net are half bull****, and the other half completely unconfirmed.

Given the track records of a lot of these rumors that get spread around, I think I'll keep posting that I want a Fleet Trooper. ;)  I believe someone said (in a stupid rumor) he was going to happen last year, and the year before...  Hasbro in a Q&A I think said "eventually".

Same deal with Ponda and Evazan to me...  Most of the rumors that come out anymore are bunk or guessing, so I'm leaning away from trusting a lot of them.

Ah, "hopefully in 2010" then is the word on the RFT, however what I was going for there was that regardless I think until it's out or has some concrete proof it's coming (images or whatnot), I'm going to vote...  There's a lot of "rumors" getting mixed up with a lot of the Q&A I think, and ultimately even the Q&A is wishy washy at times since things get bumped at Hasbro. 

Till I see him definitely slotted in, or Evazan, Ponda, etc., I'm going to keep voting for those guys I think.  Rumors though, definitely not something I'd place much faith in these days.  They seem to be hit or miss at best anymore.

I agree. Although I totally get that people want the Tonnika Sisters, and they we have the right to vote them in, we're not going to be getting them, possibly ever, so they seem like a wasted slot.

I think I was 5 out of 10 as well.

I got to agree on the Tonnika Sisters, they are too figure I do not think will ver see the light of day. Ackmena has a better shot, I really would like a figure of Ackmena. I would buy a few Skittle Clonetroopers just to help Hasbro pay for the tooling.

The Tonnika problem here is not the same as ICMG. It's obscurity vs. Legality. ICMG was really obscure but really did have a remote chance.

The Star Whores pissed off the Almighty Flanneled one so much the even he does not want to collect royalty money on them. That's bad when even Hasbro cannot comment on it with a yes or no. Actually they kind of said don't waste your vote.

I will still vote for them regardless.  It would just be nice to add them to the cantina diorama.  I guess I will buy a custom of them someday. 

Are they ever going to make Bom Vimdin or what?  Does he have legal issues to?  LOL

I guess I will still vote for them, too. Lucas has been adamant about not releasing several things in the past (like the original releases of the Old Trilogy) yet he gave the nod a couple years ago. It will only be a matter of time.

I'm a little disappointed with the results.  Especially since half of the winners are resculpt requests.  There are still some decent candidates from A New Hope out there.  It was tough for me to omit one Imperial from my own list, that being an Imperial Security Bureau officer.  But hopefully some of my candidates will get made, opening up some room on my list for 2010.

I hate the fact that so many people just want remakes on all the lists, rather new, never before made characters. 
Title: Re: Defender Wishlists 2009: A New Hope
Post by: Keonobi on June 11, 2009, 06:20 PM
I think the reason people want resculpts is because the only/most recent versions of the requested character (Rebel Fleet Trooper, Ponda Baba) are significant characters in the film (as opposed to 3rd guy from the left you can almost see for 0.02 seconds) and look badly dated compared to characters from the same scene.  For example compare the RFT to the newer Stormtroopers we have.  Compare Ponda Baba to Wioslea (which of the two actually has lines in ANH?).  While its fun to have the chance to get very obscure characters, a fair portion of the collecting community wants terrible looking figures updated given the great characters Hasbro has produced lately.  I think this list gives a good balance of the obscure with the outdated.
Title: Re: Defender Wishlists 2009: A New Hope
Post by: Nicklab on June 11, 2009, 06:36 PM
I agree that some figures seriously need updating.  But for HALF of the winners in the poll to be resculpt requests?  That's just odd.
Title: Re: Defender Wishlists 2009: A New Hope
Post by: Scott on June 11, 2009, 06:40 PM
You could argue that is actually 6 as the Imperial Commander is really just a head swap

The last five out were Bannis Keeg, Solomahal and Death Squad Commander, Han Solo Ceremonial and Imp Scan Tech...so another 3 resculpt/repaints

Oh, and I can pretty much guarantee 7 out of 10 of the ESB figures will be resculpts as well
Title: Re: Defender Wishlists 2009: A New Hope
Post by: Jesse James on June 11, 2009, 07:16 PM
For me, certain characters are bad enough I hardly consider them part of the current line...

Take Tarkin for instance.  His sculpt is horribly dated, and while his likeness is actually not horrible, his body sculpt is attrocious compared to any other figure who would be considered "similar" such as Chief Bast, or General Veers.

On the other hand, look at Han Solo Bespin...  i think the POTJ figure looks very nice, and it does really fit in beside a VOTC Han, a new Sandtrooper, whatever.  However, the figure's nowhere in the ballpark of being as good a toy overall, as say a VOTC Han.  The articulation's lacking, the headsculpt can be done better these days too...  So yeah, I want that ultimate Bespin Han.  Same goes for Hoth Luke, and the Rebel Fleet Trooper (and many others).  Does the last Hoth Luke look good?  Sure, but he hasn't got a removable hat, working holster, or much articulation at all...  The Fleet Trooper, same deal...  Lacking articulation, a pre-posed/designed sculpt in his chest as well as his feet, no working holster, ****** articulation... 

For me, resculpts are often times vastly higher on my list of wants, than say Mosep.  Not to say I don't want Mosep, I do, but the RFT and Tarkin are probably my #1 and #2 figure wants from ANH...  I'd say one of the officers who had lines would be 3rd, which is sort of new...  I think for almost every movie, I probably would vote resculpts as my #1 though.  The Obi's we're getting may have changed my tune on that though.

Just off the top of my head though, I want a new Evazan, Ponda Baba, Fleet Trooper, Tarkin, Ultimate Tatooine Luke, DSE Luke, ANH Leia with removable hood, and I'd even take resculpts of some X-Wing pilots (Biggs at least) and the like.  I think my resculpt list is even longer for Empire, and possibly Jedi as well...  It's definitely a big list for Phantom Menace as I really don't care much for pod racers and I feel just about every "Naboo" figure needs redone (all 3 soldier types, etc.).

I love when I get something like the Hoth Rebel Soldier so I can retire those POTF2 figures. :)  That's a good feeling getting that definitive figure.
Title: Re: Defender Wishlists 2009: A New Hope
Post by: Brian on June 12, 2009, 09:32 AM
Well said Jesse.  Although I'm always up for "all new" figures, I have to say that resculpts often take priority for me as well - especially at this point in the line.  While some of the POTF2 figures were nice for the time, or in some cases hold up even today, others really need the update.  The recent Hoth Rebel soldier is a nice example of something we've technically seen before, but woefully needed to be redone.  I hope we see the other rebel soldiers get some "ultimate" versions soon as well.

I also sort of place my votes from the "if the line was going to end, these are the ten I'd want from this movie" standpoint.  One figure Jesse mentioned, Bespin Han Solo, is probably one of the figures I want the most at this point.  The POTJ is actually even one of my favorite figures, but still needs some updating (particularly in articulation) to be up to the current line's standards.  Han is my favorite character, and Empire is my favorite movie - so it all adds up to me wanting a nice "ultimate" figure of this character.

Like I said, I'm all for new characters as well - and we really are starting to scrape the bottom for some of the movies.  I might also be in the minority where I like a nice mix of "big names" and background extras in each wave.  I think recent waves have been a nice mix of that overall.  Like it was already mentioned, if it comes down to a choice between a resculpt of a nice, ultimate Hoth Luke Skywalker (or another main character) and "3rd guy from left/blink and you'll miss him", I'm going for the big name.

I really hope we get the Ultimate SA Han Bespin this fall, he is also my most desired figure. Next would be Ponda Baba & Evezian.
