Just for the sake of discussion let's say the Star Wars line had managed to hold out, say one more year. Who do you think would have been included in the next assortment after the initial 17 POTF figures? Just for a nice round number and as a nice way to close out the line let's say the last assortment consisted of 12 figures (excluding Yak Face), all movie based (so none of this Atha Prime or Mongo Beefhead nonsense).

Here are my choices, keep in mind some of these were actually being planned by Kenner before the line folded, and in the spirit of the POTF line they are mixed from all films.

Action Figures:
1. Darth Vader (with removable helmet)
2. Long Snoot Garindan
3. Han Solo (Imperial Stormtrooper Outfit)
4. Hyena Man Lak Sivrak
5. Tooth Face J'Quille
6. Princess Leia Organa (Ewok Celebration gown)I wanted to say Slave Leia, but this IS 1986
7. Grand Moff Tarkin actually being planned by Kenner at the time
8. Imperial Stormtrooper (Desert Battle Gear)
9. Ephant Mon
10. Luke Skywalker (Ceremonial Outfit)
11. Imperial Dignitary the other one
12. Blockade Runner Trooper
13. Yak Face

Beasts/Creatures:
Bantha actually being planned by Kenner
Cantina Band

Vehicles:
Blockade Runner
A-Wing Fighter

Playsets:
Bacta Chamber

Coming Soon in 1987!:
TIE Bomber Vehicle
Skyhopper Vehicle
Imperial Outpost Playset

Mail-Away Figure:
Gargan

(Hey, I can dream can't I?)

7. Grand Moff Tarkin

Whats his name who played Tarkin (name escapes me at the moment) never wanted a figure of himself so thats why it never got made,untill after he died and was made in the POTF2 line :)

If it was around for another year we would have seen the 2nd wave of droids and Ewok figures and would have seen Atha Prime and that :)

I agree with most of that list, but Yarna D'al Gargan was actually supposed to be part of the POTF line. I have seen pictures of the coin prototype.

I stole some of your list, bb!

Action Figures:
1. General Rieekan or General Dodonna
2. Leia ANH Celebration Gown
3. Aunt Beru and/or Uncle Owen
4. Hyena Man Lak Sivrak
5. Tooth Face J'Quille
6. Princess Leia Organa (Ewok Celebration gown)
7. Grand Moff Tarkin
8. Imperial Stormtrooper (Desert Battle Gear)
9. Mon Mothma
10. Luke Skywalker (Ceremonial Outfit)
11. Yarna D'al Gargan
12. Blockade Runner Trooper
13. Yak Face

The technology of the time would not have allowed for a good Rem. Helmet Vader, nor any other "features" figure.

This is true, but dreaming about a vintage removable helmet Vader was the whole inspiration for this thread. I have heard that Kenner tried to make this figure several times; but the quality of the figure was compromised due to the lack of technology.

Mon Mothma was another choice I considered, but wasn't sure if Kenner would actually put two females in the same wave. Which was why Gargan was relegated to mail-away status (also due to Lucasfilm's reluctance to make her in the first place).

In retrospect I think Kenner would have tried to milk the whole Ewok idea for one more wave, thus I believe two more ewoks would be released. Maybe Weechee and Chukha-Trok along with the Ewok Pack animal seen in the Ewok Adventure movie.
