Title: 10 Figures You Wish They Had Made
Post by: Scott on July 7, 2016, 04:30 PM
With the chances of anything new from the OT and PT dying by the second and if there ever was a relaunch it would probably be mostly core characters again...what are the 10 3-3/4" figures you wish they would have made?

1.  Kenner Deco Greedo
2.  Kenner Deco Walrusman
3.  Kenner Deco Hammerhead
4.  Sim Aloo
5.  Vintage Bespin Guard
6.  Bannis Keeg
7.  Solomahal
8.  Lars Family Power Droid
9.  Fozec
10.Tonnika Sisters

My list for OT and PT would be pretty short.  I think they've covered nearly everything and done a really good job.  To me there are only two obvious gaps:

If you expand it to EU stuff I would have a lot more items on the wish list.  Just a few:

Yeah, I mean for me the top of the list would be any vintage figure that they never got to - so that's Sim Aloo.


1) Sim Aloo
2) Tonnika Sisters - I still have a hard time believing that there was no way to get those done.
3 and 4)  The other two Imperial Dignitaries
5) Tessek - Always wanted a higher quality version of him

After that, yeah - any unmade background characters, cantina aliens, jabba's goons...

6-8) Baniss Keeg, Solomahal, and Fozec are all good by me.

9) I always thought it'd be cool to get some of the camo-dressed Mon Cals from the Rebel Briefing:

10) How about this Reegesk fella:

The silver lining, is that I think Hasbro will still make the occasional new figure from the OT for collectors.   I hope at least.

10...  hmmm...  You made this tough with that short a list, haha.

1. Jabba's Snaggletooth (I love the outfit, the bandoleir, and the head that looks pretty spot on to the Kenner sculpt/look...  Snivians kick all kinds of ass for looking kinda cat-like).

2. Captain Antilles ANH  (He's essentially a generic army building Rebel Officer.  He'd be a dandy figure in the new RO film, but he'd be just a great army builder for the RFT's we have, and head swaps galore for other officers...  The Saga 02 figure is ok, and passes in a crowd if the crowd gets big enough, but he's a tad tall, a tad specific with the face, and IMO not accurate (too young) to the good Captain as he appeared in ANH...  plus, his articulation blows at this point for an "army builder").

3. SE Jabba Goon (I'd love a lot of them, but for me the guy with the hat and goggles, the guy with the pointy hat, and the big bearded mofo are sorely missing characters from my Jabba scenes...  I envision these thugs in my Jabba display every time I see it, and basically no humans but Lando are there.  Just getting ONE of 'em would've been nice.)

4. Likewise...  Garouf Lafoe (He actually DOES something, and at this point he and Yerka Mig are the only Humans from the Cantina I really wish they'd have done...  Danz Borin a close 3rd, but Lafoe actually does something by going out and snitching on Obi-Wan's handywork.  I am bummed we don't have him and never will.  Boring to some, but cool to me, I will whip this guy up some day.)

5. Endor Rebel Trooper #1.  (I've wanted a nice, super articulated version of the Endor Soldiers who had the camo pants, the vest, and the basic shirt...  They've never made a good one, and wish there was one for army building.  Nice, generic, simple...  Head variation with the black trooper would be nice too, like the last attempt at this figure was given.)

6.  Endor Rebel Trooper #2.  (The POTF2 Endor Rebel basically, but updated.  Has the camo hoodie on, zipped up or slightly opened kind of like the vintage figure, either way I'd be happy...  Again, super articulation, some bomb case sachels maybe as a second accessory?  I'd buy both these troopers in bulk!)

7. Vintage Update Snaggletooth.  (Blue or Red, though I'd prefer red actually.  Short, the red jumpsuit given a modern update, no shoes with the big feet...  I really want that one).

8.  Vintage update Walrusman.  (Same as above, just a modern sculpt of the classic outfit...  Hammerhead and Greedo don't get me as much, maybe because their costumes are kind of similar to the Kenner figures already, I don't know, but Walrusman is just out of left field with those clothes and the flipper feet.)

9. A better Grand Moff Tarkin.  (I want perfection of this figure...  The last one's sculpt was good, but the deco sucks terribly, and the coloring is maybe slightly off on the costume.  I would also prefer a plastic skirt piece that's pliable for sitting, but GOOD softgoods would be acceptable too.  Include a mouse droid, and a hologram of the Death Star, and I love it.)

10. Endor Han Solo.  (I loathe the TVC figure...  The barrel chest, the "floating" holster, the headsculpt being seemingly a tad small and undetailed...  Give me perfection, and a coat that's a little nicer than what we got, and I'm a happy camper with my overall Han collection they put out in the 3.75" scale.)


There are definitely others I could come up with, but just off the top of my head here just now, not sleeping on it and overthinking it, these figures would be awesome to have IMHO.

My next wants, if I could go beyond this, would definitely include McQuarrie Concept figures...  Hoth Rebel, Yavin Rebel Techs/Troops, Lando, TIE Pilot, X-Wing/Y-Wing Pilots, Jabba's Palace  Characters, Cantina Plant guy...  The Concept line was and is one of my favorite sub-collections of figures.  2007 was just full of great ideas, and this was maybe the best of them.

This is really hard the more you think about it, haha.

1 - Palpatine - ROTS Office Duel (SA)
2 - Imperial Security Bureau Officer (white tunic, black trousers)
3 - Tonnika Sisters
4 - Bespin Guard (beared guy from the Kenner vintage card)
5 - Hoth Rebel Officer (vintage Kenner Hoth Rebel Officer)
6 - Nik Sant (Endor Rebel Trooper with blonde bushy beard)
7 - Shasa Tiel (Ishi Tib from Jabba's Palace)
8 - Giant Mouse Droid

10 - Sim Aloo
Title: Re: 10 Figures You Wish They Had Made
Post by: Darby on July 7, 2016, 10:01 PM
Pretty much in line with what others are thinking. Never really wanted the Tonnika Sisters but I would take them of course. Not quite 10 but here are the ones that jump out at me:

Bannis Keeg
Sim Aloo
Grand Moff Tarkin - like the vintage one, don't love it. The cloth skirt is terrible.
Dorme
Mon Calamari Officer - love the POTJ one but would love an updated version.
Yakface

Title: Re: 10 Figures You Wish They Had Made
Post by: Jeff on July 7, 2016, 11:26 PM
My list is really similar to Scott's actually.  I think I'd put Cliegg in there (instead of Bespin Guard) and Tzizvvt (instead of Lars family droid).

1.  Kenner Deco Greedo
2.  Kenner Deco Walrusman
3.  Kenner Deco Hammerhead
4.  Sim Aloo
5.  Cliegg Lars
6.  Bannis Keeg
7.  Solomahal
8.  Tzizvvt
9.  Fozec
10. Tonnika Sisters

Huh.  7/10 from ANH Cantina.  I guess that means I really, really, really wanted them to finish anyone/everyone from Mos Eisley (and then some, in the case of the Kenner-style ones).  :P

Title: Re: 10 Figures You Wish They Had Made
Post by: Jesse James on July 13, 2016, 12:00 AM
I love Yuzzum.  I've seen a lot of Yuzzum hate.  I dig the guy.
Title: Re: 10 Figures You Wish They Had Made
Post by: Scockery on July 13, 2016, 12:05 AM
I blame Joh Yowza.

I like the history behind the Yuzzum. That  for ROTJ they had a concept for plains dwelling Yuzzum on Endor but dumped the idea for costs or time or whatever.
Title: Re: 10 Figures You Wish They Had Made
Post by: Jesse James on July 13, 2016, 12:20 AM
I was thinking similarly...  Joh Yowza's ****** CGI killed Yuzzum love.

Is there another Vizam or did you mean this guy?

Maybe he meant Vedain?
(http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c103/ThinWhiteDuke1/Weston9.jpg)

He almost made my list. He would if it were top 20.

Nope. My error. I don't know how I completely forgot about that most excellent resculpt. I will put Vedain in his place though.

Thanks guys!
Title: Re: 10 Figures You Wish They Had Made
Post by: DoctorPadawan on July 22, 2016, 05:40 PM
Hmm. This is tough.

01. Cliegg Lars (AOTC)
02. Padme Amidala (Picnic Gown; AOTC)
03. Palpatine (Office Duel; ROTS)
04. Owen Lars (ANH)
05. Tzizvivt (ANH)
06. Tonnika Sister (ANH; I don't care which one)  :D
07. Admiral Piett (ESB)
08. Sim Aloo (ROTJ)
09. EV-9D9 (ROTJ)
10. Yak Face (ROTJ)

After those 10 (and maybe a new spirit Anakin with Sebastian Shaw likeness and spirit Yoda, both done like the 2004 OTC spirit Obi-Wan), I think I'd be happy with things ending.

With another 2.5 years in the rear-view mirror, thought I'd update my list - still surprises me they screwed up and never gave us a TFA General Leia figure in 5POA or SA/TVC lines.

No particular order, my revised top ten "I wish they would have made these".  Not gonna list resculpts in here, just characters that got ignored.  And still holding out hope for SOLO Dryden Vos figure in 2019.  :-\

1. TFA General Leia
2. AOTC Cliegg Lars
3. ANH Tzizvvt
4. ANH Bannis Keeg
5. ANH Atheloe (pka Solomahal)
6. ANH Tonnika Sisters
7. ROTJ Fozec
8. ROTJ Sim Aloo

and from Classic Marvel Star Wars #15 (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Star_Wars_15:_Star_Duel)
9. Crimson Jack
10. Jolli

Still bums me that early run from Marvel never got much in the Comic 2-pack treatment.

Post by: Muftak on January 7, 2019, 04:30 PM
Missed this the first time out.

There are so few figures left on my "must have" list...

1--Chewbacca w/ Threepio sculpted on his back (no thread or vinyl sack with play feature Threepio, just something sculpted to look screen-accurate.)
2--Ranat
3--Wiorkettle
4--Tzizvvt
5--Treva Horne
6--Noghri (or two...Khabarakh and Rukh)
7--"Splinter of the Mind's Eye" style Yuzzum (or two...)
8--Tonikka Sister (or two...)
9--Jaxxon
10--Sim Aloo

They did a great version of Owen in the comic pack with the robot leg Maul.  Do you have that one?

But that was a con exclusive so some people might have missed out.  I did. Plus Owen needs a TVC card

Oh man, I have no idea how I missed that! I definitely never got it. Ah well. Maybe we'll get a single release someday, or I'll troll ebay.

+1 on that version of Owen Lars. The comic 2-pack was for the Visionaries one-off.
