Obviously, we'd all like brand-new figures. However, 12 new ROTS figures all utilize existing sculpts, and apparently, many of the TSC figures in 2006 will do the same. Basically, these are like "official customs." So, if this is the route they'll be taking some of the time, what other figures should they make in this fashion?

*Obi-Wan Kenobi (Tatooine) - From the ROTS Pilot Gear Obi-Wan, just add a new Alec Guinness head and replace the current plastic skirt with that of the ROTS Saesee Tiin, but in the correct color.
*Battle Droid - In all sorts of different colors - all red, all tan, and with other rank colors as well. Use the upper body from the Saga/ROTS battle droid and the legs from the POTJ Security one, but cast it in better plastic.
*Bail Organa - Use the ROTS head and slap it onto the Captain Antilles figure. Hey, I might actually do that myself.

What else should they do?

Well we're getting a bunch of new Astromechs from Entertainment Earth, and that's what I would have asked for in terms of repaints.

The only other sculpts I wouldn't mind seeing thrown out again would be the Ewoks - as long as their painted distinctively and come with a nice selection of all-new accessories.

I thought the re-paints they did for the OTC line actually turned out fairly well. If they do more... when they do more, I would like....

Luke X-Wing pilot: Use Dutch Vander body, new head sculpt. (Just look how goofy my avatar looks).

Han Hoth: Re-issue Han Hoth rescue, but include an interchangable head (ala the Luke Dagobah training) that has his hood down.

Luke Hoth: Re-issue Wampa cave Luke without the battle damage.

Death Star droid: I would like the POTF 2 version in silver.

I like the idea about the Hoth Luke w/o Battle damage.

Hasbro issued that copper colored DS droid with that crap *** Sand Crawler. So maybe they will rehash that on a card as well.

Yeah, that karate horse stance is lame! I saw a custom somewhere where the guy had straightened the legs and it looked ten times better. Same guy had done the head replacement, included a soft goods hood. That's where my inspiration came from.

Ahhhhh, so that's what that was. Never got the Sandcrawler.

My God, you guys would be FURIOUS if you had to pay full basic-figure price for that Sandcrawler pack in. It's an awful figure, rubberier than all get out. It doesn't even look metallic.

Yeah I know all about it. I bought the Crawler and saw that it is truly a huge hunk of trash, so I sold the Crawler to a friend that liked it, less the figure. I took 15 bucks off the price for the figure. But yeah the figure is lame. Hasbro truly doesn't try 90% of the time. I'm really sick of hearing "It costs too much to make", man that ticks me off. I'm afraid that Hasbro is really going to drive this line into the ground and it will be all over in 2-3 years. I really don't have too much hope for the line lasting until 2018.

Even with that emotionally-uplifting boost you're giving them with your sig line? ;)

I don't see it going much past 2008. I'm thinking that the desire for people to collect figures based on the TV show isn't going to be half of what it was for ROTS, and around here the hype for ROTS figures is over - we haven't seen any new figures since June 6th, and there isn't much on the pegs. After the first year's worth of TV show figures flop, there won't be much hope for any continuation after that. Maybe they'll resort to the new "Direct to Consumer" marketing scheme we're seeing with the new (and pretty cool looking) GI Joe figures.

I would like a new Plo Koon, similar to the POTJ version only with better articulation. Kit Fisto repaint also SA with a Robe. A good Mace Windu once again SA with a Robe. Han Solo in Carbonite new sculpt, slicked back hair, full shell carbonite. and a Jedi Luke, closed tunic SA with a better head sculpt and no action feature.

Yes, but, when Lando was wearing Han's clothes, he had the collar tucked in, much like Han did during the ANH medal ceremony. So, make medal ceremony Han, then make Lando in Han's clothes. :D

I'd also like to see a Boba Fett that uses parts from some different Jango Fett figures, so he too can have a flamethrower and grappling hook.

Im straight on Koon and Fisto, but I the other three (Mace, Han Carbo, DSIILuke) could all use resculpts, and I would hope they wouldnt rehash any of the previous versions of these figures. Were already getting that awesome Han Carbon, and Im really wanting the SA DSII Jedi Luke as well as the SA Mace w/ soft goods robe, just throw in figures like DS Gunner, GM Tarkin, Amarild's Peitt and Ackbar, and a single carded General Veers along with many others from POTF2, (when collecting was actually exciting) and Ill die happy.

I'd be willing to rebuy the charred Anakin body from the #50 figure if it also included new robotic legs to plug into his legs and a new left arm into which you could put a new robotic arm, and also they should repaint the right arm to be more detailed. The figure would be a more film accurate version of the "Rebuild Darth Vader" deluxe figure. That would be so sweet! :thumbsup:

Also, continuing with the destroyed Ani trend, they should retool the Evolutions set ROTS Anakin to have red eyes :twisted: and also have his arm and leg be available for chopping. And don't forget all three scars. :hurt:

These new smilies are cool. :yes: :thumbsup: :love:

New gam guard, new ackbar, new luke bespin without gimmicks, damage and stance, new snow trooper with SA, new luke, han and leia with their endor ponchos/overcoats that are removeable and when they come off, there's a nice looking SA figure underneath.

New sculpt of ponda baba...I'm sick of the buff version, he just doesn't fit with all of the newer figures! A more articulated hammerhead.

Whoever mentioned the interchangeable Hoth Luke...that's a great idea, I'd go for that!

I'm REALLY glad we are getting a new boussh, although the POTF95 one still is not as bad as most of the figures from that time. It still stands up to alot of these newer sculpts, just with less articulation.

Oh yeah, an SA BIKER SCOUT already :yes:

You didn't say it was your custom. If I'm right I think all you have to do is remove the black coat to reveal the silver. The only thing is,it's really more like a copper color.

Mr. JabbaJohnL
08-19-2005, 07:25 PM
I'd also like to see a cloaked Mace Windu, using parts from any ol' Jedi and the arms from the Episode I Darth Sidious, since those are pretty long. Or they should at least retool that Sidious figure to have a disfigured Palpatine head, so it can be from ROTS or ROTJ.

08-21-2005, 02:33 PM
A friend of mine customized it for me, but it is MY figure. :) And I wish I had a better camera because he didn't just "take off the black coat". James left some "dirt" or "worn" spots like around the arm sockets and so forth to make it look like a true Tatooine droid. He wouldn't tell me what he used to remove the black coat. (I still wonder what it was.) James was interested in what others thought of it. I'll tell him that not much was said.

We are desperately in need of a new, better detailed Bib Fortuna figure. The OTC re-release of that lame POTF2 version was uncalled for.

They did such a great job on the new sculpt of Obi-Wan [ghost], Lobot, Dagobah Luke, Skiff Lando, and the way-better-than-was-necessary Cloud Car Pilot... Bib Fortuna (and the Gamorrean Guard) could have greatly benefitted from the same superb treatment.

Rumor has it that there might be a new Bib in the Saga '0 collection. I certainly hope so, I'm keeping my fingers crossed.


As for other repaints/retools I'd like to see: new Han in carbonite (I agree on the fully-enclosed block), the other Weequay [tan/gray tunic], and the Jabba Palace version of Ishi Tib.

New sculpt updates of Warok and Paploo are a great idea too. :D

The ROTS C-3PO is, by and large, the best protocol droid figure EVER. It would be a shame if they did not re-paint this in the AOTC colors, and also keep him gold but give him a new right leg with a silver shin. If they're ever feeling generous (and you know they're not), it would be awesome if they added knee articulation, an Endor chair, and some Ewoks, and made a screen scene out of it. Hell, all the Ewoks can be kitbashed or repainted for all I care.

I'd love to see more pilots from red and gold squadrons from A New Hope. As far as I'm concerned, they could use the Dutch Vander body for all of them, the clean shaven endor trooper head (he's generic enough and they could have the hair painted different colors), and paint the helmets to match the figures in the movie. I'd buy them all especially if they were sold in a Battlepack type assortment. Of course I would rather see these figures as all new sculpts with accurate heads but I'm not holding my breath.

I made the same thing and it is fairly easy. One of the customizing websites tells you how to do it. It may have been nail polish remover (acetone?), but I'm not 100% positive. I don't want anyone taking of the black and the silver. Whatever it was, the black paint came off pretty easy. I know I used the same stuff to take the gold color off of a C-3PO, but it didn't come off quite as easy.

Theres your figure right there. They seem to be doing that with alot of figures from the new waves weve seen. (Veers, Snowtrooper, Chewie..etc.)
