Great ideas.

If for some reason they actually do Bollux (or Zollux as he was known in the early UK editions of the novel), I hope they do his earlier, rusty body.

R2-A5 is at the top of my list followed by T3-M4, I'd also take the PK Droid.

Wouldn't mind remakes of 8D8 and EV-99

In the ESB pic of the white IG-88, is that supposed to be a droid in the bottom left corner? Looks kinda like Stormtrooper armor with a modified TIE pilot helmet.

Leebo
Guri
T3-M4

-Perhaps we could start a BAD tournament the likes of which was done for Cantina denizens and skiff guards? (And, Rune_Haako, Kalani would also be a great choice for a BAD)

-So what does everyone think of the tournament? I could start the thread in another section and ask for it to be moved, as is what happened with the Cantina poll.

I think Hasbro's going to let Disney have the exclusives for awhile, but eventually we'll see some of the advanced astromechs being used in the BAD series at retail.

I'd love to see Leebo and a re-release of the YVH droid too.

I really, really want EV-9D9, 8D8, and 2-1B. They already have half the parts for a new 8D8. So that's a given at some point, right? Besides a new EV-9D9 and 8D8 would motivate me to finish my Jabba's dungeon diorama. :rolleyes:

Others that I would like to see are:
- The blue, bantha droid from Mos eisly
- A resculpt of the wed droid that originally came with Aunt Beru.
- If we get a new EV-9D9 then they would have the parts to make AV-6R7 (I think that's its name. The black droid on the bridge of the Executor.)
- Any droids from the OT although I'll get anything I think looks cool from the NT and EU.

I just want OT droids that aren't just endless Astromechs. Granted I do want them still, but others are higher priority.

Tatooine Droids, Jabba's Droids, you name it.

And I really woudn't mind having new EV-9D9, 8D8, 2-1B, and I'm sure there are some more that need updating.

These may not be the most exciting, but I think they are realistic and fairly likely for Hasbro to do:

R7-A7 - Ahsoka's copilot in The Clone Wars. Obi-Wan and Anakin both have their droids in realistic form already.
Separatist Tactical Droid - not likely to be done as a single-carded figure (it was only used as a pack-in for TCW, I believe), but a decent choice for a realistic Clone Wars character
R-3PO - replaces the TAC Battle Pack version, and matches the recent K-3PO



And, as a long shot with no possibility of being made - Bender Bending Rodriguez from Futurama. I'd love to see him in the background of a Clone Wars episode.

Yeah I'd really like a realistic R7-A7, and we definitely need a new R-3PO!
Considering they're just repaints I can't see why Hasbro doesn't get this stuff out!

They go to all the trouble to half ***** update Ceremony Luke, or give us stuff we didn't even ask for.
But yet the can't give us our darn Droids!

I admit it would get boring for them to focus on this aspect, but they've shown the BP method work well as an exclusive.
Excellent way for them to knock out 5 Droids at once, or throw something else in to attract a wider audience.

IMO the Pilot sets should be changed a bit, I think that's why the Ewoks wee more popular than them.
They actually looked like different characters.

I think this format is a good way to get Clone Wars droids out in realistic format, especially droids that aren't astromechs. I have no other suggestions at this time, though.

I'd be down for another Astromech 4-Pack like they did with TPM. An Imperial-themed one could update R2-Q5, R4-M9, and R4-I9 all at once, and they could throw in R2-Q2 and voila!

My biggest droid suggestions are Bollux and Blue Max, Leebo, and E-3PO.

FA-5.
All they need are some new legs to fit FA-4. I'm halfway through customizing one myself right now.

It's realistic Clone Wars (if they decide to continue doing those), but I'd like to see the Separatist Tactical Droid, and the Commando Battle Droids.

Some POTF2-era droids reallt need updates. Things like EV-9D9, 8D8, Hoth 2-1B, Sandcrawler RA-7 droid, and ASP-7 can all benefit from modern tooling. I also wouldn't mind seeing TC-14 updated.

Wow, talk about resurrecting an old thread! lol Yes BL-17 and even Boba Fett would be great candidates for reissue.

I'd certainly be game for new versions of EV-9D9, 8D8, Sandcrawler RA-7 droid, and ASP-7. As well TC-14 and R-3P0 updates using the BAD mold.
