The number of remaing figures from the vintage line that need an updated sculpt is debatable, but the the fact is, there are some that still need to be done. The last one we got was the Cloud Car Pilot. Who do you think we'll get in '06?

I think Derlin aka Rebel commander is a strong possibility, and I think we'll get at least one of the 4 remaining Ewoks. Too bad Klaatu (Jabba's Palace) is already out of the running. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/frown.gif

What are your thoughts? Remember, only predictions from the original 96 figures made from 77-85.

Your choces are:

Never resculpted (8)

Rebel Commander
Imperial Commander
Bespin Security Guard (Black)
Klaatu (Jabba's Palace)
Chief Chirpa
Romba
Lumat
Worok

Character sculpt/ paint different from original (7)

Rebel Soldier (brown vest)
Tie fighter pilot (ANH)
Nikto
B-wing Pilot
Klaatu (Skiff guard)
Barada
Imperial dignitary


Never carded (6)

Bespin Security Guard (White)
At-At commander
Leia Endor
Luke Endor
A-wing Pilot
Palpoo

Luke & Leia Endor ar just screaming to be made in my eyes(or do I mean ears). These were 2 of my favorite figs as a kid. I actually love the Leia Endor that came with the bike, it wasn't bad at all. But these are the 2 that most stand out in my mind, especially being that they are two main characters in major scene outfits.

I've gotta say that I don't think highly of your chances on any of these, but I did have a couple oservations. weren't Leia General (Endor) and Imperial Commander/ Officer both offered on PotJ?

We've basically seen the Carkoon wave confirmed and only three of the figures are new and two of them are core characters. So if they follow suit with each wave will have at least one minor character.

For minor charcters, I hope for the following

Major Derlin(sp?)-Hoth
Commander Cody-Coruscant
Bultar Swan-Geonosis
Garindan-Tatooine
Chief Chirpa-Endor
Naboo Pilot-Naboo
Death Star Gunner-Death Star

Core character hopes

Hoth Leia resculpt-Hoth
Good SA Anakin with Vinyl robes and SA Mace- Coruscant
Good SA Obi Wan and Padme-Geonosis
SA Luke(no lightsaber in arm) and Obi Wan-Tatooine
Endor Luke and Leia resculpts-Endor
SA Qui Gon and Obi Wan-Naboo
resculpt of Han and Luke as Stormtroopers-Death Star

Wow, that set of core figures would be awesome MK. too bad we'll probably not see them.

I think you're missing the point of the post then. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/blush.gif

Technically, the Leia and the Imperial offficer don't count since the Leia is the rebel briefing Leia, sans poncho and helmet which were included in the vintage release, and the officer is a junior officer in a different outfit. This one is open to interpretation though, like I said.

And with respect, lets try to keep on topic and not make grand wish lists containing figures that were not made from 77-85. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

The white Bespin Guard was offered in the Carbon Freezing Chamber playset, although the sculpt isn't entirely original.

The sculpt is also garbage. LOL, the face looks like David (Fox Mulder- X-Files) Duchoveny to me. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

That's why that one's listed under "never carded." http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

That would be the POTJ version, which is regarded by collectors to sport an Asian ethnicity.

The only figures I can see Hasbro making for sure would be Sim Aloo and Chief Chirpa. The others I'm sure we'll get at a later date.

Sim Aloo is the name of the vintage Imperial Dignitary who hasn't seen the day of light in the modern line yet. He was hinted at after we got the last 2 so we might see him within the next couple of years.

After sim Aloo then we should get the other 3. You have
the unmade bottle nipple headed dig. and then the other one that looks like the black robed one that we already have.
At last there's a mysterious sixth one that you only see
at the end of ROTJ when it pans back showing the entire
line of the Emperors DS 2 arrival with guards and dignitaries. I don't know how but is there anyone who can post that exact screen shot of that where others can see.

Thanks! I figured it was him, but didn't have the resources to look it up.

Wait - I just remembered I do have the encylopedia. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
