I, like many on here for years, KNOW that Hasbro has promised over the years to remake all the original 3 3/4" figures from the Kenner line(Ewoks and Droids cartoon figures aside). I for one, and I know I'm not alone, would like to see Hasbro finally get on a stick these next 2 years and PROMISE and then DELIVER the final Ewoks, Bespin Guards, and others we still need to be updated.
2006 would be a great year to start, and since 2007 is the 30th anniversary and since their is not TOO many more to go, it should be finished then.
Make the unmade in the new line figures, make the single carded figures we still have but not ON a single card (A-wing pilot for example), and finish it.
And make the Cloud Car while you're at it.

I'm in no hurry, I don't even have enough money to keep up with everything they are putting out now.

Don't forget a REAL General Veers not the cheesy POTF2 AT-AT commander called General Veers. Discraceful.

The only ones I can think of that they haven't made are the black Bespin Guard and several of the Ewoks. I'm not gonna complain only because they've given us SO much more than what the original Kenner line did.

Yeah, like the gems that are Cold Wather Kenobi, Apprentice Darth Maul, Snoova Disguise Chewie, and Mara Jade, among others...

Cold weather Obi and apprentice Maul are good figures. Not in the films but nevertheless a lot of effort went into their detail and paint. I don't mind that we have these figures. I suppose your point is that after 10 years we still don't have all the vintage figures redone and yet Hasbro is finding the time, money and manpower to put out these non-film figures. Fair enough.

I think Slicker made the good point that we have a lot of figures Kenner probably wouldn't have dreamed of making back in the 80s. Cantina figures, Jabbas palace figures, droids, even some core character outfits (I didn't even notice Han wore a stormtrooper belt during the escape from the death star till the POTJ figure - and there was never a vintage Bespin escape Leia to my knowledge)

In the same vein of getting all the Kenner figures, didn't the GH swami say that in 2006 we'd be getting all 96 vintage figures re-done on VOTC cards? I wonder if they misinterpreted that as the Saga 2 line, or if that's still a go? I kind of hope not, I mean, I don't really need a $10 super poseable power droid or something like that.

If the power droid came with the power couplers on their head, I'd be happy to pay 10 bucks for it.

Speaking of the Swami, where the hell is he? By now we should know whats coming in the next 4-6 months. Could it be that

#1 Hasbro doesn't even know.:rolleyes:
#2 There really isn't anything after the Han in Carb wave:sad:
#3 Hasbro is trying a new tactic and now telling us.:whip:
#4 The up coming figures are soooo cool, Hasbro wants to surprise us!:love:

I want the vintage Imperial Dignitary done and it would be nice if the finally gave us Yarna Da'l Gargan since she was supposed to be released in the vintage line.

I think they are missing Romba, Warok, Lumat, Paploo (on single card, B-wing pilot (on single card), A-wing pilot (single card), R5-D4 resculpt, At-at Commander aka VEERS (whoever), Logray, and Black Bespin Guard.

I agree with the thread-starter 100%. I want the rest of these figures made in the new line. I have BEGGED for a Black Bespin Guard to no avail. All they have to make is a new head sculpt. The potj body sculpt is fine! Jeez!

I think in the next couple of years we are going to be suprised...one way or the other. I am optimistic that we will see the last few vintage figures updated and made, but I have been wrong before. But, no matter what, I really want these to be at an affordable price point. The vintage OTC figures were great but the price stunk and I don't want to pay $10 for a black bespin security guard or an imperial dignitary.

True. I don't want to pay $10 either. And I would like to add the other imperial dignitary to my list. Also, take away Logray, he has already been made. Has Cheif Chirpa been made? If not add him. There...now my list is complete! Whoooooooo Haaaaahaaaaaaaaaa!

No Chief Chirpa hasn't been remade yet. I don't think Klaatu or one of the Hoth rebels has been done either.

Well, reckon we've done pretty well really- especially guys like me who get off on all the background aliens. There's only a handful of obscure cantina aliens left to do beore that scene could be called complete, so I am not complaining at what Hasbro has given us over the last decade. That said, would I buy the remaining vintage figures if the made them? - sure thing. A new R5-D4 would top that list too. I just can't count that weird deform we have already. Bring on the new ewoks Hasbro!

Klaatu was in a Cinema Scene three pack a while back and the Hoth Rebel Soldier was on a green card back in 96 or 97.
