Personally, I would love to have as many variations of the R*-** droids as possible. My first want would be the one with the clear dome. Secondly,I would enjoy having as many of the "Bad Guys" as possible. Kudos for the "bounty hunters", and for the upcoming 3 we have heard of to date. In my opinion, you are on the right track with the 12" figures.

STP

P.S. If you have to change the sculpt, fine. But please re-issue the exclusive pairs in widely available single packs.

Firstly I would like to say that the current style of packaging with the figure infront of a mini-diorama is excellent. The bounty hunter series and speed bike are just a few examples where the figures look just as excellent in the box as they do outside the box.

I feel that there aren't a great many more figures to be made for the classic trilogy that will have mass market appeal inorder to complete the line. Below are the remaining figures that I feel still need to be made :-

ANH
---
Rebel blockade trooper


ESB
---
Dengar bounty hunter
Zuckuss Bount hunter
General Veers in AT-AT uniform
2-1B medical droid


ROTJ
----
Jabba Hutt
Gamorrean guard
Weekway/Nikto skiff quard
Lando in skiff guard disquise
Ree-yees
Tessek

Special 2/3 packs :-

Jabbas band (3pack with Droopy, Sly & Max)
Rebel Alliance pilots (2pack with Niem Numb & B-Wing pilot).
Battle of Endor 2pack (AT-ST walker pilot & Rebel commando)

Jabba's band? Wow! That would rock! But can we say killer price point (3 figs at $25 each, plus the thingamagigger that Max Rebo sits in, add $25, and since the only way this would see light of day would be as an exclusive (add 50%) unless it's a fan club exclusive (add 100%).

Even conservatively, we are looking at $100. Look how much the dewback is. Still if it looked as cool as it sounds I'd buy it (payed as much for that damn Marmit Fett...)

I would also like to see some more 12" Figure/vehicles such as:

Stap/Battle Droid
Eopie/Qui-Gon
Swoop/Aurra Sing
Swoop/Swoop Trooper
Bantha/Tusken Raider
Ronto/Jawa
Tauntaun/Luke
Escape Pod/C-3PO (R2-D2)
Landspeeder/Luke

And if 21st Century can do Tanks and helicopters...why not a T.I.E fighter and an X-Wing fighter.

I agree with pretty much all the suggestions above....love the Aurra Sing w/Swoop idea Darth Cruel.. http://www.collectstarwars.com/ubb/images/icons/grin.gif.....a really well articulated Aurra could really set this apart from the Masterpiece one http://www.collectstarwars.com/ubb/images/icons/smile.gif

as long as a fair few of the following are in Hasbro's pipeline I'll be happy...bold type indicates the few figures I really would love to see produced
<UL TYPE=SQUARE>
<LI>Droids...Astromechs would be great..but what about a few from the Jawa's SandCrawler like the R1 unit,a few of the WED units or the CZ model protocol droid from Mos Eisley.
<LI>Garindan...Long Snoot
<LI>Momaw Nadon...Hammerhead
<LI>Kabe...would be a great candidate for the smaller packaged 12" scale line..ie 6" tall like the Jawa or Yoda
<LI>Nabrun Leids...I just like the look of this 4 armed alien...pehaps it could have a removable face mask...
<LI>Dengar..with backpack from ESB
<LI>Zuckuss..fully detailed with body armour under his cloak...similar to the POTF2 3 3/4" version
<LI>Gamorrean Guard...this ones a must...with a pike and an axe would be great
<LI>Ree Yees
<LI>Tessek
<LI>Saelt Marae(sp)
<LI>Weequay/Nikto/Barada/Klaatu...all 4 would be nice...like the Hoth 4 Pack maybe..with a variety of pikes and blasters.
<LI>Lando Calrissian done 100th Luke style with Skiff Guard and Generals uniform
<LI>Nien Numb
<LI>Oola w/Salacious Crumb
<LI>2-1B
<LI>FX-7
<LI>Plo Koon
<LI>Saesee Tiin....hey all 10 of the remaining members would be nice....maybe even an E1 Yoda.
<LI>A few of the Pod Racers...ie Gasgano, Mawhonic etc
<LI>Senator Palpatine
<LI>Rune Haako and Nute Gunray 2pack
[/list]
...and could you tell us if the Death Star Droid shown at ToyFair is still to be refined before its release....ie will all the details on its arms and legs be removed so it is more accurate to the one from ANH or will it use the parts from 3PO as was displayed?

Thanks http://www.collectstarwars.com/ubb/images/icons/wink.gif

I'm still desperately looking for 12" Bounty Hunters. I'll worry about the future once I'm caught up with the past.

Greejo - good call with the backpack for Dengar. I wonder how many people notice the difference between the ESB and the POTJ Dengar. And I wonder how many of them realize that the 3 3/4" one is the one from ROTJ.

Also, I believe the Gamorrean Guard and Oola/Salacious are still planned for later this year with the 12" skiff Lando.

I think you guys are going about this all the wrong way.

Don't just make a list of every conceivable potential 12" figure... it's overwhelming.

Tell Hasbro three figures you'd kill for.
For me, that's 2-1B, Gamorrean Guard and Oola / Salacious.
There's plenty of others I'd like, but I'd rob a bank to get those three.

Greejo
03-06-2001, 05:59 AM
Well SpaceGhost2K.....I tried but I could only get it down to 8....I love the 12" line and the above really is a list of the ones I'd love to see made. http://www.collectstarwars.com/ubb/images/icons/smile.gif

But if I have too..my three must haves would be..
<UL TYPE=SQUARE>
<LI>Gammorean Guard
<LI>2-1B....although its hard to see this one in my collection without FX-7
<LI>Momaw Nadon
[/list]

...and the last two bounty hunters to complete the set are a must......see I just can't do it... http://www.collectstarwars.com/ubb/images/icons/wink.gif

Greejo
03-06-2001, 08:45 PM
geez..I totally forgot about Amanaman..this would be one SWEET 12".....not to mention a fully convertable Destroyer Droid http://www.collectstarwars.com/ubb/images/icons/smile.gif..........nice call FWJ http://www.collectstarwars.com/ubb/images/icons/grin.gif

Yeah maybe we'll get a Droideka in the ep2 line but I think Amanaman's chances to make it to 12" are quite slim but we can hope!

Sithblade
03-09-2001, 01:25 AM
E./U Sharad Hett (maybe w/ removable mask)
Oola (Oo-la-la http://www.collectstarwars.com/ubb/images/icons/grin.gif)
Plo Koon would rock!
and a Big-***** Blue Snaggletooth!! http://www.collectstarwars.com/ubb/images/icons/grin.gif

Darth_Cruel
03-10-2001, 01:15 AM
Oola is a good choice, but I think she is already on the slate. Maybe even this year. I hope she has that cool "falling out" feature.

I would love to see Jabba with throne, Salicious, that water globe with snacks, etc. This would make a great exclusive.

The more I think about it, the more I want the original Max Rebo Band.

And the Zuchuss/Dengar thing is a must...

3 weeks later, and I'm still lookin' for Bounty Hunters....

PodRacer-X do you have a phobia about using online retailers? There have been countless mentions on this site of where you can pick these puppies up online that are even cheaper than retail.

PodRacer_X
03-26-2001, 12:39 PM
No phobia.

I haven't heard of a single source which can ship me one as cheaply or even comparably to retail. If you know of any currently offering them, please e mail me. I'd love to know.

Thanks

Give me an Amanaman buddy and I'll be happy http://www.collectstarwars.com/ubb/images/icons/smile.gif

As for 12" figures, we do really need..

Zuckuss

Tessek and Reeyees...or Reeyees and Tessek (Whichever y'all prefer http://www.collectstarwars.com/ubb/images/icons/wink.gif)

and, 21B and FX7 2 pack would be killer!
I've always had a thing for Medical Droids :

I've heard of plans for some of the figures I'd like, but not for these:

Leia in Red Bespin Gown
Zuckuss
Jabba the Hutt w/ Throne

03-28-2001, 01:00 AM
The cheapest your going to buy them online is $25 + shipping. Admittedly this is more than what TRU is now charging since they are selling for $19 in some places but it all depends on how badly you really want them. I got a case from EE when they were only $119.

PodRacer_X
03-28-2001, 01:21 AM
I'd pay $25 + shipping. Where is that?

Everywhere I look, they're priced at $30 - $50 + S&H and sold out.

SIENARtestPILOT
03-28-2001, 05:52 PM
Okay, I'll list my most wanted Imperials and Rebels:

A-Wing pilot
B-Wing pilot (Mon Cals made it, why not fly it?)
Y-Wing pilot (maybe a blue flight suit?)

Rancor/Gamorrean Guard 2-pack (Yes, it would be huge, but so is the Dewback)
General Veers W/ helmet & hat
Probe Droid

RICK
03-28-2001, 11:08 PM
Han & Chewie 2 pack
Hammerhead
Dengar

DarthNader
04-09-2001, 08:49 PM
The most glaring holes in my twelve inch collection are:

Zuckuss
Dengar

I don't see much point in expanding the Jabba's palace line up until we get a 12" scale Jabba!

And how come there aren't more EP1 characters on this thread? Don't you find it odd that we have a 12" Chancellor Vallorum, but not a 12" Senator Palpatine?

And a 12" TC-14 but no 12" scale Nute Gunray?

Am I the only one who wants a 12" Captain Panaka?

SpaceGhost2k, I hope its okay for me to do three from the holy trilogy and three from Episode One!

Andy/Paul, in case you're keeping score, I've been looking now for all three 12" Bounty Hunters for 4 months and found IG-88 and 4-LOM so far. At an average of 2.5 toy hunting trips a week, the score is:

Hasbro - 40

PodRacer X - 2

Only three? Nooo!!...can't...cut...list... http://www.collectstarwars.com/ubb/images/icons/wink.gif

From EpI, more members of the Jedi Council.

From the classic trilogy-let me add my vote to those calling for a 1/6 scale Jabba. As sweet as a full Palace gift set would be, truth is I would have to take out a loan to buy it. But a set of Jabba, his platform and Oola with Salacious would be the centerpiece of a 12" SW collection.

Overall-aliens,aliens,aliens.

And if any of these figures/sets were of comparable quality to the Qui-Gon/Amidala 2-pack (sigh....)

Thank you for the forum and MTFBWY!
