Which core character figures do you think well see in 2005?

At least one of every member of the old gang:
*Luke Skywalker
*Han Solo
*Princess Leia
*Chewbacca
*Darth Vader (well, some new ones as well)
*R2-D2 (a new one)
*C-3PO (a new one)

Plus, of course, the main ROTS figures:
*Anakin Skywalker
*Padmé Amidala
*Obi-Wan Kenobi
*Palpatine
*General Grievous
*Yoda
*Mace Windu
*Count Dooku

Plus, some random ones from TPM and AOTC (like we saw with Saga in 2002).

That is a safe bet along with hopefully some figures we haven't seen yet from the OT as well as PT and hopefully less than 1% rehashes :)

Would be nice if, whereever possible, we could get some unique versions of these guys.

Luke Skywalker - Medical Frigate, w/ robotic hand
Han Solo - Ceremonial
Princess Leia - Medical Frigate
Chewbacca - must be an Ep. III version
Darth Vader - only way to get a new version would be an Ep. III version
R2-D2 - launching lightsaber, improved version
C-3PO - wonder how different he's gonna look in Ep. III

...wouldn't surprise me if the first 3 were complete rehashes yet again. I highly doubt we're gonna get the special, Ep. III versions, Luke & Leia as babies - each sold separately, and the "much requested" Han Solo as a little boy. :D

I'm with you, Tagmac. With the focus in 2005 being on ROTS, and since we just saw the OT principals ad naseum between the HOF, OTC and VOTC line, if Hasbro feels compelled to issue any of these core characters in 2005, let it be in costumes that haven't been previously rendered in plastic. As for Darth, Chewie (unless it's a nice ANH sculpt, which we still don't have), and the droids, I think we can stick with the ROTS versions.

I'd also like to see more TPM and AOTC characters, since they've fallen by the wayside this past year. These should all be background characters, and not more Qui-Gons and Darth Mauls. More Amidala outfits would be welcome though.
