If only Star Tours Kris's site was around for pic reference. My thoughts are that so far the line has had 4 waves with 3 droids in each wave. While the line has only included droids up to this point, there is room for expanding the line. There are still unproduced droids, other characters from the ride que, and characters that appear in the pre-ride video as well as charcters from the ride itself.

1. I would like to see the orange version of R3-D3. We got R3-D3 on the POTJ ST card, the droid is an astromech and has a clear dome. This would be an easy one for Hasbro since the only difference I can tell is the body is orange instead of blue.

2. R2-D2 & C3-P0 are featured prominantly in the que, but haven't been released in the Star Tours line. There are tons of molds out for both of these figures, just slap them on a Star Tours card

3. Admiral Ackbar (Mon Calamari). They're in the control booth of the que. There are molds on both of these. Cheap& easy

4. Generic x-wing pilot from ride movie. Use one from y-wing or somethiing and repaint the helmet to reflect the ride video, would be awesome.

5. Ree-yees. Seen in pre-ride move with camera. Re-pack POTF-2 figure give camera accessory, easy.

6. Teek, yes we want him

There are others to be named, these are my thoughts, what are yours?

You know before I even say it who I want. He may be a 2-foot ball of fuzz with bad teeth, but I'd pay $10 (or even $15) in a heartbeat for Teek.

Ree Yees would be an excellent choice, too, since so many people missed him the first time.

There are several other Ewoks (including, IIRC, Chuka-Trokh) seen in the safety video. You can never have enough Ewoks.

Before I even read your post that's who I thought of! Bad figure choice I am sure, but everytime she does the boarding video, I crack up...classic 80's!
Definately Ree Yees with the triple eye camera accessory and whoever was smoking! Teeks' a given!
Oh and a 3/4 scale Starspeeder!

Oh I forgot Ira Keeler. He's an ILM model maker and is credited on IMDB as "Ira Keeler .... Man who ducks under desk at end of 'ride" (uncredited)"
That's pretty cool, I love that guy!

[QUOTE=K M Toydarian]Oh and a 3/4 scale Starspeeder!QUOTE]

Yes I would definately love to see a scaled version of the airspeeder. As far as figures..... perhaps a blasted version of R2-D2. I know he doesn't get blasted on the ride but at least we will have a figure that perhaps looks similair to R2 at the end of ANH. C-3PO with the large control panel. Unfortunately Threepio is a hard figure to give any accessories to since he doesn't have any but I think a recast of the ROTS version Threepio with a repainted silver leg and a large control panel would be cool.
Ree-Yees sound decent, not sure about Teek. As far as the Mon Calamari, could be cool if they redid the Mon Calamari Technician figure. The generic X-Wing pilot could work also, but for $10 a pop I'm thinking they should us at least the Dutch Vander style figure with a new head sculpt. would be great if they used the VOTC luke sculpt, but I'm thinking that Hasbro will most likely opt for a rehash of either the red leader figure or the generic y-wing pilot.

I agree he would amake another great choice for a figure.

I've always thought a bigger Starspeeder would be a cool toy, plus would probably sell decently to not only Star Wars fans, but kids that get a toy from the parks. To get one to scale wouldn't be possible, but I'd settle for an unscaled version that could accomidate a few 3 3/4" figues/droids

There are also as mentioned above alot of good candidates from the pre-show movies as well. Who wouldn't like an ewok two pack or a Star Tours carded chewie (someone has to get annoyed after Ree Yees uses his camera!)

Plus there are other droids from Tokyo, and Paris needing to be made.

I acually wouldn't mind a figure of a generic ride employee in their Star Tours costume.

With Hasbro's Q & A talking about the marketing plans for vehicle starships fitting their future pans, what a better time than this for a Starspeeder 3000 release.

And with the EU two packs i'd be fitting to have a Teek and other figure pack (maybe an ewok, or a droid). I'd buy a Rex repack to get Teek.

Whatta bout that fat dude with the overalls and the glasses? (Isnt he like the only guy in SW that has "glasses"??) :crazed:

I would buy the stinking Endor AT-AT if it came with Teek. Hell, I'd buy five if you had to send in the proofs of purchases from all five to get one Teek.

I'm confused....please help me. Was Wave four the last wave? Did it come out in '05 or '06? I'm not even sure who was in the Wave...they are all running together in my head. Thanks.

Beats the heck outta me; I would suggest goin over to RS's picture database- as much as I dont like them it is a good archive and you should have no problem finding what your lookin for.

Good News!
SW Kris has finally got his Star Tours site up and running. Not sure if anyone has been there before but it's worth a look plus has pictures for us to map more proposed ST figures.

Does anyone know if these are still readily available at Disneyland?

I was planning on going (mainly to complete my collection), obviously I won't if they aren't carrying them.

I don't know about Disneyland, but I was at WDW a few months ago and they had all of wave 4, and a few Rex's from wave 1

I'd say Banthaholic managed to predict the upcoming Star Tours figures very well over three years ago. Only, instead of an Ewok 2-pack, it's an Ewok and Kaink! As a huge fan of Star Wars and Disney World, I have to have this set. :love:

Teek is not an Ewok. He is vastly superior. He communes with Brimley.

I think the next exclusive should be a figure of El Chuxter with the pack-in accessory of a scaled down Boarding Party box set, it would be like buying the figure of Chux from the scene where he buys the box set. ;)

El Chuxter

I'd buy that for a dollar!

El Chuxter, that's why I shouldn't post responses when I'm really tired. I meant to say "an Ewok and Teek"!!! I'm a huge fan of both Kaink and Teek. :yes:
