Good point Nick...I've seen that one debated before...my own personal list is:

Lumat
Sim Aloo
Blue Gonk
Death Squad Commander

I'm OK with the Bespin Guard, Hoth Commander and Endor Troops

I think this list is probably closer to the mark, and Lumat just got confirmed. 

We've certainly been over the Death Squad Commander thing enough.  That being said, I'd be fine with things if Hasbro offered the upcoming Imperial Naval Trooper in a grey/olive uniform running change.

So on FB yesterday GH reports that Sim Aloo, Blue Gonk and Mustachioed Guard are on the very short list for the next time Vintage comes back

That was good to see confirmed, however expected.  Color/facial hair variants aside, Sim Aloo was really the only vintage figure left on my list here that was an absolute must have.  It's sounded for years like Hasbro's been interested in polishing off this entire list as well, so I'm sure we'll eventually see the rest of the minor variances get made too.  I'd love to see Hasbro just do a "Vintage-deco" wave similar to what Curto teased for April Fool's a few years back:



Obviously you'd need to add Ponda, Greedo and Momaw into the mix there as well to really round out the set, though they'd obviously be far more ideal in one of those Target vintage 3-packs.

Softgoods suck.  Almost as much as the Prequels.

To pass the time/unwind/get my mind off more pressing matters, I've made lists of random figure stats concerning the original 92(3.)

One stat is that Warok is the only figure that has yet to be released as a single on card.

Setting name updates aside, I think this represents the latest arguable "needs to be updated" from the original 70's/80's line list:

Death Squad Commander/Star Destroyer Commander (solely because of uniform color.)
Power Droid (because of character color)
Bespin Security Guard #1 (the mustache, but I'd take a beard as pictured.)
Imperial Commander (this is an odd one since we have an updated generic black uniformed officer, but Veers is pictured.)
Rebel Commander (Derlin probably covers this one, but the guy on the vintage card has a different uniform.)
Rebel Commando (because the sculpt on the POTF2 one is way too old now.)
Imperial Dignitary (you all know why.)

There are definitely POFT2 figures that should update like EV-9D9, 8D8 and C3PO with detachable limbs, but what we've got, I feel, still holds up.
