I was just reflecting on AOTC Midnight Madness 2002 and something still sticks in my craw . . . they made some FANTASTIC toys for that opening day, some damn good figures which I still love today. :)

Therefore I am still salty about the goofy initial offerings of our 3 heroes.

That's one of my biggest hopes for the launch of the E3 line. I know, I know, if they do goofy versions of O, A, and P they can get "us" on the double dip. :crazed:

"Come on Ha n sbro old buddy, don't let me down." :p

Of course they will mess them up, how else can they use the "all new likeness" stickers they have laying around?

I'm still waiting for a "normal" white suit Padme from Episode II...

Somehow I think the only way we will ever see normal or decent versions of these figures is if they continue the Vintage super-articulated figures to include Episode 1-3. For me this is what I would like them to do from Episode 1-2.

Episode 1
1. Jar Jar Binks
2. Qui Gon Jinn
3. Darth Maul
4. Padme (Final Celebration)

Episode 2
1. Obi-Wan Kenobi
2. Count Dooku
3. Clone Trooper
4. Anakin Skywalker

Dude, I like your list. God I hope Hasbro pays attention to this! The only change I'd make is the clone trooper. I know the SAP version they made for the Clone Wars line is awesome, it just had poor distribution. So they could re-package that one,(they love doing that unless it's something we want). And maybe in place of it we could get one good Jango, or .... maybe a Zam that can actually fit correctly in her speeder!!!!!

I agree wholeheartedly!

I got tired of waiting for Hasbro to release a basic AOTC Obi-Wan in Jedi robe so I customized my own. A basic Anakin (straight pose, nothing fancy) is another project on my list.

Amen to that! Why do all the Qui-Gon figures suck so bad?

Maybe Liam Neeson agreed to do Episode I "only if none of the action figures look like me"???

I don't know, the 12" figures had pretty good sculpts. Except of course for ANY of the female figures, which all looked horrendously bad.

The 12" Ep. 2 Padme looked like a glorified Barbie.
