I want the captain!

He should have elbow articulation and wrist articulation, so he can hold a normal pose, a rebel blaster rifle, all as well as hold his hands to his throat when Vader chokes him.

I've wondered for a long time why they keep making resculpts and not working on the ones they haven't made.

Yes! He'd be an awesome figure...at least he'd add on to the death toll in figure form. But yes, he is a needed character.

Now that I have some little faith that hasbro can actually make a figural representation of a human and not make it look like a manekin of a norse legends hero, I say yes - bring it on and give it the same care you took with the rebel fleet trooper. he would look fine commanding a detachment of troopers or simply hanging around......... :)

"hanging around" HAH! Your sly British wit floors me!! Ooooh...I gotta sit down after that one....


What were we talking about? Oh yeah. Capt. Colton Antilles of the Alderannian Defense Fleet Ship Tantive IV. Yes please!!!

And Hem Dazon, also. (i just thought I'd throw that in there...)

I too will stand up to be counted amoungst those who want to see Captain Antilles produced! He would make a great counterpoint to the Rebel Fleet Troopers and an excellent addition for "army builders" who want the odd commander for their Rebel forces.

O yeah I'm all for the good captain...but I would rather have a CS with Vader choking Captain Antillies and a Commtech Stormtrooper:D :D

For as much as we'd like a CS of that... I we all know that ain't gonna happen anytime soon!

I would LOVE to see a Captain Antilles made. If it doesn't happen, I guess we can just put another Fleet Trooper in as a stand-in.

Why the Captain? We're already getting the Tantive IV trooper who is pretty indistinguishable from Antilles. Just get that one and make believe.

Let Hasbro concentrate on more desired figures, like the umpteenth resculpt of Obi-Wan or 'Cookie Jar stealing Anakin'.

I am down for the Captain. I think with the new trooper coming out, and the supposed rescultps of it, why not make him one of them.

I didn't realize that this thread was already started until Jedipartnr mentioned it. I had a similar one on the Dear Hasbro forums.

Capt. Colton Antilles had more a tan outfit, rather than the regular grey w/black vest of the common troops.

Oh and in addition to the Hem Dazon I mentioned above, I want Rebel techs in gray coveralls. (just thought I'd throw that in there.)

Yes I do!

Bring it on Hasbro!

Yeah, I want him. I already have a scene set up with some CT Stormtroopers vs. some new Rebel Fleet Troopers. I could set up Antilles next to that....I think it would look really cool, but I think we would need a new Vader to choke him, like in the movie.
But yeah, put me down as a yes for this one.

Like my childhood idol, Darth Vader, I'd...uh...pick him up.

Jargo
03-24-2002, 03:23 PM
I'd snap up a Captain Antilles figure. Now more than ever. I've just started building up my rebels now that I have a fairly decent showing of Imperials to do battle with them. I'm a little disappointed in the rebel fleet trooper but he's way better than the POTF2 version and I have high hopes for the head variant not looking like John Ritter :D So I'd love a Captain Antilles to command my troopers. Bring him on boys!

They have to make it. It was the scene that showed us first how mean Darth Vader really was. He did get more ***** after that, but it was a good start. One of my favorite scenes in a movie. Make him you dirty SOBS at Hasbro Make him!!!!!!!!!

This has been a heavily sought after fig for quite some time. One can only hope that the powers that be will listen.

I would definitely toast my Capt. Morgans to a Capt. Antilles.

I want a General Antilles!

Tycho

By GENERAL Antilles, I assume you refer to Wedge's roles after accepting promotions in the New Republic Navy in the Expanded Universe. To another Rogue Squadron fan with a screen name like Tycho (from Capt Tycho Celchu for those who didn't know), I'd normally agree.

But if they make EU figures of an older Wedge, why have they not done Jacen, Jaina, and Anakin Solo - and why not do a Jedi MASTER Luke Skywalker and some Yuuzhan Vong for him to fight first?

But this thread is about Captain Colton Antilles - probably an Alderaanian, not Corellian, and of no relation to Wedge.

Incidently, Rogue Squadron's commander's father was JAGGED ANTILLES. An outer-space gas station owner killed with his wife when pirates fought there to escape Corellian authorities.

LOL!

Did I post too much information there Cotasnoova?

It's from reading like every Star Wars comic or book that's ever came out. I'm REALLY into it. So much I ought to be embarassed were I not actually having a lot of fun! :)

I know what ya mean Tycho. I scared this lady and her daughter once that were picking up figures for her son's birthday. I was at TRU, and they were looking over the figures and asked me a couple questions about a few of them. "Why doesn't this Luke come with a Lightsaber?" was one of them, there was a couple other things they asked, and they stared in disbelief when I was answering their questions. Sometimes it's a curse to be such a Star Wars geek. :D

They asked you didn't they?

Why do people ask questions if they WANT 'uh...I don't know' as an answer?

Speak up Mr. Hand and Mr. Spicolli!

That would be gnarly dude!

Cotasnoova

Sorry all I read was the forum name. I'll be more careful next time. Oh yeah, I read all the books, but the comics suck in my opinion (there is no need to reply to this or get angered as this is only my opinion). To bad the Lucas has stated several times that the comics and books are just a bunch of babble and has no reflection on his Star Wars. So for all I care, the Antilles you are speaking of, does not exist, and neither does my General Antilles. As he was never referred to as General in the movies. I do love the Vong, but Emperor's Hammer was a little weak.

Tycho
03-31-2002, 09:14 PM
I was kidding Cotasnoova, moreover referring to JarJar's lady in the toy store asking the questions.

You never asked about Colton Antilles rank or relation to Wedge. I'm just one of those idiotic Rogue Squadron fans that has a 5 page thesis on why the Rebels actually won the Battle of Hoth ready to post in case somebody asks.

(I'm kidding again).

Cotasnoova
03-31-2002, 09:18 PM
I am a loyal to the Empire THERE IS NO WAY YOU COULD HAVE WON AT HOTH OR ENDOR. I want your report. I would love to read it. Down with Rogues is my new motto. LOL

(i would like to see it)

Well, from a certain point of veiw they did. The objective wasn't to beat the troops, as that would have been impossible. All the battle was meant for was to hold off the Imperial troops until they could evacuate Hoth. Since the AT-AT's didn't actually destroy the shield generator until all the crafts other then the falcon were away, they technically would have been counted as winning that one. None of the big leaders were captured or killed, that we know of either. Though Riekeen does disapeer after Hoth...hmm, anyone know if in the EU he died on Hoth, or was captured? :)

Captain Antilles would be great! I'd love to see a neutral posed carded version AND a two pack version with the Cap being strangled by a properly scaled (FINALLY!) Vader! Of course, that's just WAY too much to hope for.:(

Riekeen is on the Star Wars Rouge Sqadron game but I don't know if that helps.
