As 2009 comes to an end, I was thinking what figures or items from the vintage line still need to be updated in the modern toyline?

I know we still haven't seen Sim Aloo, the Imperial Dignitary yet but anyone else besides the Ewoks/Droids toy lines?



I know Hasbro has offered a number of figures over the years in battle packs and such but is it just me or does anyone else want to see Hasbro release certain modern figures carded so that we have a modern carded counterpart to the original? Eg like having Amanaman, a number of Ewoks/Palace Guards on a normal card.

As for vehicles where's the Cloud Car? Any other vehicles left to update?

Thoughts?

Re: Vintage figures/Items left to redo?

A legit Nein Nunb, Lumat, Death Squad Commander, Kithaba (misnamed Barada) need to be redone. I'd like to see a new Yakface come out on a single card as a tribute to ultra rare original POTF version.

Re: Vintage figures/Items left to redo?

My number one request would be the Echo Base Rebel Officer. I would like to see Sim Aloo as well. And, I like the idea of having each of the modern counterparts show up on a single card at some point- nice thought

Nien Numb was done of course.

We havent had Nikto yet though. The Power Droid that came in the vintage line hasnt been redone (though we have had other Power Droids).

Re: Vintage figures/Items left to redo?

Figures:

1. Death Squad Commander / Star Destroyer Commander = grey repaint of Death Star Trooper
2. Blue Power Droid
3. Brown coat Rebel Soldier
4. Bespin Security Guard with moustache
5. Wooof / Klaatu
6. Nikto (different outfit)
7. Lumat
8. Barada (different colour)
9. Sim Aloo (Imperial Dignitary)
(10. Grey-robed OT Anakin technically, but we have a brown one and a spirit so that is reaching a little bit too far IMO)

Vehicles:

1. Imperial Troop Transporter (would be a good Clone Wars toy!)
2. Rebel Transport
3. Cloud Car
4. All of the mini-rigs, body-rigs and playsets!

Personally I would like for all of the figures to be completed except the Anakin and would buy any of the not-yet-redone vehicles (1-3) as well in preference to further retools of retools.

in a couple years I'm hoping they'll do one in the vest from the Falcon cockpit scenes with the flight cap on his head.

was there even a blue power droid in any of the films?
Yeah it was in the Lars Homestead.
ah! I assumed they were all brown. now we need a blue one!
They are all sort of gray/blue. But the one in the Lars Homestead is a brighter blue with the panels and buttons on it? I think? It seems like the vintage figure was based off that one (though the card photo shows the one in the sandcrawler, that was released in 1999). I think there is a blue(r) on in the streets of Mos Eisley too.

Re: Vintage figures/Items left to redo?

I will not consider them all to be done until we get:

Action Figures
Power Droid - Blue Lars Homestead Version
Imperial Commander - Any of the officers from ANH in the black outfits would do e.g. Praji
Death Squad Commander - Grey Version
Hoth Rebel Soldier - Brown Vest
R2-D2 - Sensorscope - All the version done so far have had more of a Dagobah swamp periscope and not the Hoth Echo Base Sensorscope pictured on the card
Bespin Security Guard - White guard with 'tash
Lumat
Sim Aloo (Imperial Dignitary)
Kithaba (Barada in the vintage line)
Nikto
Klaatu - Though this is supposed to out in 2010

I can honestly say I dont want the imperial transport. as cool as it was, I can make without it, since it wasnt in the film. I can hope they do make the rebel transport (the one seen hovering on the ground, in the rebel bases).

Re: Vintage figures/Items left to redo?

The cloud car should be a no brainer for Hasbro.I do agree about the Imperial Transport.I was cool but it had its place in the past and was not in the film.I do think though it was in one of the comics.

I still think it would be an excellent Clone Wars vehicle and is much better than the Republic Tank

Re: Vintage figures/Items left to redo?

Definiely something that's been covered at some length around the various threads, but the list is definitely getting shorter.

1) Death Squad Commander - (Original 12 - 1978) I put this one on the list for those that insist this paint job exists. For my money, I believe this gap has been filled with the various DSTs that we've received, but Hasbro seems to acknowledge that we want one, and therefore I'd guess we'll see it as a filler figure at some point.

2) EG-6 Power Droid - All of the Power Droids that they've done so far are based on the "Gonk" Droid from the Sandcrawler. The one at the Lars Homestead actually has a different build, has a taller box, and actually has the "details" on the front like sticker on the original blue Power Droid from the 1979 vintage line. So an EG-6 would require a largely new tool. This is one that we're probably going to have to elevate on their radar, as I'd guess they'll count this one as covered.

3) Echo Base Deck Officer - this one should come out as Cal Alder or Shawn Valdez. While the 1980 vintage figure was sold as a Rebel Trooper, the outfit that they modeled it after was actually the Deck Officers from inside the hangar. Interestingly enough, the 1981 Rebel Commander is actually more properly the vintage Hoth Rebel Trooper. This one would also be a largely new tool. Although it will share some common parts with an upated Hoth Luke Skywalker.

4) Bespin Security Guard (ESB - 1980) - The original BSG release featured a mustachioed face, which directly corresponds to one of the guards that escorts Lando out to greet the heros as they arrive at Cloud City. Given the fantastic new Bespin Guard that's coming in this year's ESB wave (with another vintage gap filler - Sgt. Edian), this one is just a head sculpt change, and should come as a filler at some point.

5) R2-D2 Sensorscope (ESB - 1982) - This is a case where we really don't have the specific sensor, but rather the periscope, while there have been figures in the line under this title, I'd guess they'll find a way to mix this one into a future ESB wave as a filler.

6) Wooof - Corresponds to the vintage Klaatu (ROTJ - 1983). To a certain extent, we've been splitting hairs with the first few, but this one, there's no hair splitting, there's nothing even close in the modern line. Fortunately this one seems to be on track for 2010. Let's hope they deliver on that promise.

7) Vink'to - I'm going to start a campaign to name the "vintage Nikto" (ROTJ - 1984) some sort of amalgamation of what the character represents. All the other Niktos at Carkoon have been named (Vedain, Nysad, Vyzam), so why not the vintage figure? This character corresponds to a Nikto on the guard skiff. While we've had an old POTF2 figure of Vyzam and the new Nysad figure that's coming in the ROTJ wave, this one is a completely different figure - and much like Klaatu a glaring gap.

8) Lumat - (ROTJ - 1984) - Here's an easy repaint Ewok. SO far they haven't released any Ewok under this name, but have danced all around it. It's an easy repaint of Graak, but needs to be in vintage colors. Rumor has it this one will be in whatever ewok exclusive seems to be on tap for next year.

9) Sim Aloo - the vintage Imperial Dignitary (POTF1 - 1985) - we thought of him as generic, but now that they've done two specific Imperial Dignitaries, and since we've been specific on the others, they need to make sure to fill this gap as well.

10) Kithaba - the vintage Barada (POTF1 - 1985) - while we've gotten the character now called Barada, the vintage figure is based on the character now called Kithaba. The two Carkoon Baradas are different in many details. Kithaba wears a two-layer tunic, with the outer yellowish layer being a completely different color than Barada's one-piece. Kithaba also has a different Bandolier on. Given that the existing Barada figure is a POTF2 era Cinema scene figure, this one needs to be all new!

So there you have it ten gaps to go - and really only about half of them are really glaring gaps, for several, we're very much splitting hairs over what's been released already.

With the strong rumors of Wooof and Lumat for 2010, and a back-door comment that would lead us to believe that the Gray DST is coming as well, we can hope that three more will be filled in the coming year.

Re: Vintage figures/Items left to redo?

Now, if you want to get into vintage figures in need of a modern update, then the list gets much longer, as many of those were only covered by POTF2 era figures, and really don't match to the modern line. That list is actually fairly lengthy! If the figure hasn't been done since the POTJ line started in later 2000, then it should be HIGH on everyone's re-do list!

Re: Vintage figures/Items left to redo?

Its nice to see the list getting smaller and smaller. Though it used to be suprising to me just how long the list has always been. I always thought back in the early days they would knock out this entire list a few years. Its crazy to that that nearly 15 years on we have still got a list of 10 vintage figures that havent made it into the modern line (though the BWG, Power Droid, DST and R2 are massive stretches in my opinion).

Yeah, a way to really illustrate this is to look at MrCurtos group photos of the 97 and 98 lineup. There are some glaring culprits of POTF2-ism that really need updating. But, again, a lot of them have been re-done in the past couple of years. There is not nearly as many as they used to be. And I am sure the others will not be far away.

Re: Vintage figures/Items left to redo?

I want to see some of the mini-rigs make a comeback, new tools or redeco versions. They would make great additions to the CW line. If the battle droid can have a mini tank like the current release than the Republic needs some of their own min-rig action.

oh yeah I forgot about that one.

well then he needs an updated version.. sooner rather than later.

Re: Vintage figures/Items left to redo?

I'd like to see the grey-suited Death Squad Commander, and a re-done Ponda Baba. I didn't realize the power droid we have is not the Lars (Classic) power droid, so add that in and then we have a nice original 20.

While we're on it, I really hope any new power droid they do dispenses with the foot mechanism, which keeps the damn things from standing up.

there, of course, have been several Pondas. But a new one would be very welcome. I am not bothered about the gray DST. And the little clear bands that attach weapons to the figures solved the problems of the Power Droids that cant keep their legs together.

Ah, I'd never thought of that. Sadly, I think I don't have any of those bands anymore...I'll grab one next time I get a new figure.

I still think the 'action feature' is pretty stupid when it interferes with the figure standing up. And it's not like it has holes in its feet either.

And yeah, I know there have been several Walrus Man figures, but they're all based on that first POTF2 "Beefy Wide Legs" stance.

Great list Since but I would also add the Rebel Commander to it. He's exactly the same as the Bespin Guard. A distinct character that we haven't gotten yet that is just a new head sculpt away.

Other possible additions would be:
Rebel Commando: While we have gotten many none have had the exact same outfit as the vintage figure.
Teebo: The vintage figure's cowl is the one he wears most of the time and the PotJ one is the one he wears during the battle.

Re: Vintage figures/Items left to redo?

I think the POTF2 version of the Endor Rebel Soldier is pretty much the same figure/outfit as the old vintage figure.

Also, the old Hoth Rebel Commander is basically just a Hoth Trooper's body with Derlin's head on it. I don't think it's ever been confirmed, but I think the old figure's head is a likeness of Ratzenberger. So basically the old figure doesn't represent anything seen on-screen (Derlin didn't wear the soldier's uniform). I think the Rebel Commander is like the old DS Commander, errors on Kenner's part. Technically, the old Hoth Soldier figure is just the Hoth Trooper, but it was painted incorrectly.

Re: Vintage figures/Items left to redo?

Sim Aloo is the vintage figure I want the most, maybe it can share common parts with a Sate Pestage figure, and Hasbro can retool one or the other, and get 2 figures out of the mold, just like the previous dignitaries...

Now I know that there are many Bobas. I would like to see the Pre-Production Boba Fett like the vintage figure. with the yellow and red gauntlets.

Well, let me first say that Kithaba and a super-articulated Barada resculpt currently occupy the #1 and #2 spots of my most-wanted action figure list. However, saying that the vintage Barada is actually Kithaba is only half-true.

The figure itself is sculpted to match Barada, meaning that he has a backpack (which Kithaba does not wear), a butterfly collar shirt, and wears a bandolier strap that hangs from right to left (Kithaba's bandolier hangs from left to right).

Now it's possible that someone at Kenner must have decided that Barada's time on screen was much too fleeting, so they should paint the character to match the more visible alien, Kithaba; but it's more likely that they just got the aliens mixed up like so many people at Lucasfilm have done in the last couple of decades. So, the vintage Barada is sculpted to match Barada but painted with Kithaba's colors, making him a weird amalgamation of the two (similar to how the vintage Greedo is a curious mix of Greedo and Nabrun Leids).

Here's a comparison of the two Klatooinians as they appeared on screen:


The vintage Kenner figure is more accurately described as a mistake by Kenner and I don't necessarily want that mistake repeated in the modern line. Just like no one is campaigning for a new Hammerhead in a bright-blue, one-piece bathing suit, or a new Greedo on Nabrun Leids' body (without the extra arms).

"Rebel Commander" has a different sculpt than the Rebel Soldier though.

C'mon '78. You of all people should know the "Lucas Naming Convention" - first and foremost is no apostrophes.

The unnamed Nikto would be "Vinkto" - though to be honest, I'm perfectly fine with "Nikto" being his name. That way we would have "Klatuu, Barada and Nikto" as the official names of characters on the execution skiff.

Bib Fortuna - Super Articulated. The Saga '06 version don't cut it.
Gamorean Guard - I know it's coming but here's another vote for a couple future repaints.
Garindan - The Saga '06 one is ok. Super Articulated would be better.
Hoth Snowtrooper - All white would be great, preferbaly with no softgoods this time. No battle damage/battle dirt.
AT-AT Driver - Super Articulated. With ball jointed elboes.
Endor Rebel Soldiers - Super Articulated.
Cloud Car Pilot - Super Articulated.
Wampa - Super Articulated.


*edit: Non-Vintage Figures (The forum nannies have their panties in a bunch. Gotta spell it out for them or they'll never calm down)

ZAM WESELL - Super Articulated. THIS ONE IS LONG OVER DUE!!!
Hoth Leia - Super Articulated.
Utapau Pau'an Priests - Super Articulated.
Utapau Utai Grease Monkeys - Super Articulated.
Utapau Clone Trooper - Clean/non-battle damaged ones would be nice to add to the army. Having identical damage on all of them doesn't look right.
Sebulba - Super Articulated.
Ep.1 Young Anakin Skywalker - Super Articulated.
Ep.2 Young Boba Fett - Super Articulated.
Battle Droids - Super Articulated.
Super Battle Droids - Super Articulated.
Destroyer Droids - Transforms into a ball. This one is lonnnnggggggggg over due!
Darth Maul - A better one with ball joints/Super Articulated with a shirt.
Ep.1 Pod Racer Pilots - Super Articulated. Maybe a battle pack of 5 or 6?
ROTS Grievous' Bodyguards - Super Articulated.

Re: Vintage figures/Items left to redo?

sorry mate, not quite getting your point: this is a wishlist of some kind?

Doesn't relate to the topic.

I am not too bothered with the Hoth rebels and the Barada-Kithaba incidents (though I would love a Kithaba)

For me it's mainly Sim Aloo, Lumat, Mustache Bespin Guard and Wooof (!!!). Then I'll have my vintage fulfillment.

Re: Vintage figures/Items left to redo?

I forgot about the mustachioed Bespin Guard. I'd definitely like to see him get an update in the near future. The other two Wing Guards will need some back up.

I think the POTF2 version of the Endor Rebel Soldier is pretty much the same figure/outfit as the old vintage figure.

Also, the old Hoth Rebel Commander is basically just a Hoth Trooper's body with Derlin's head on it. I don't think it's ever been confirmed, but I think the old figure's head is a likeness of Ratzenberger. So basically the old figure doesn't represent anything seen on-screen (Derlin didn't wear the soldier's uniform). I think the Rebel Commander is like the old DS Commander, errors on Kenner's part. Technically, the old Hoth Soldier figure is just the Hoth Trooper, but it was painted incorrectly.
No, the RC is not Derlin or an error, it's based on an actual character. This is from the Action Figure Archive:

Not sure if he's actually in the movie but I think he is.

As for the Endor Rebel, while the PotF2 figure might be close enough there are two distinct difference.
1. They have two different style backpacks.

2. The Vintage figures suit is open and is lacking the rank badge.



Edit:After getting those pictures of the Endor Rebel above I just happened to look at the picture of the Freeze Frame and noticed this:

I think this is who the vintage figure is based on. I was a little on the fence whether the Rebel Commando should be counted in this list or not but now I'm convinced he should be.
