The Nute Holo is something I really want.

A Red OOM-9 would also nicely round out the arena.

I seen a picture of a Geonosian cannon on another site a week or so ago. It looked really cool to me. It was the same type as seen in the BattleFront game. I wouldnt mind my Geonosians having some type of artillery to go with them.

I'd be okay with the OOM-9, Obi-wan (if SA) and definitely the Holo Nute.

Oh and kool-aid killer, you're right, I saw that too and agree it would make a most welcome addition to toy collections. That should be something in a battle pack.

What's the difference between this Droideka and the ones that were released? I can't tell.

More articulation, and detail. (those hoses on the the arms.)

And no lame action features.

I'd definitely like to see that Droideka too, after the Ep 1 line there hasn't been a single decent Droideka, they all have gimmicks that ruin the figure.

Can we also talk about fig's that WERE released but should've been cancelled? Or is there not enough room on the servers for that?

But, yeah, I'd like to see more of the trophy assortment. Was there both a holo Sidious and holo Maul from E1?

I know holo sidious was released as a standard figure, the holo Maul was a light up exclusive from WM.

The Holo Nute Gunray is a MUST!

Bring it on Hasbro!

I'm down with all these figures. Especially the Obi Wan. OOM-9 doesn't need to be made since he already has been released.

Just not that thing. Brand new sculpt needed methinks. Something that actually looks like Claire Davenport in costume. Articulated. ball jointed waist would be good. with the hips being the socket kinda GI JOE style. ball jinted shoulders and hinged elbows. swivel wrists foward/back tilting head. ball jointed ankles. if not soft goods skirt then really soft rubber. a smile on her face and a glass of something potent in her hand (removable glass though).

Out of that other stuff I'd only buy the Geonosian sonic cannon and Droideka.

No, that's a bad idea. That leads to O-rings. O-rings break.

JediTricks

They don't have to be O-rings, they could be modern joints like the universal joints on the Super Articulated figures' torsos... though the torso articulation is more accurate than waist articulation anyway. I really want to see universal-jointed hips for some figures though, most Jedi and definitely Maul since he side-kicks several times.

Yes, thank you for refining JT! Also, anytime there's a plastic/no-plastic joint there's the weak point. Things will break along that line most easy (although good for customizers).

The problem with realistic leg/hip joint articulation is that it's static and doesn't have the dynamics of the abdominal/back muscles to hold it steady. I would rather have the more accurate, but not as articulated, Star Wars approach to things than the less accurate/prone to breaking GI Joe attempt.

For me, I'm getting a little tired of figures that have all this crazy pose-potential in the arms, head, and even torso, but their legs are still limited to just "stand there" poses even with knee and ankle articulation, and for any dynamic wide-stance action poses now you have a figure who can't look normal in any OTHER pose. Riding speederbikes, kicking enemies in the head, or even just crouching into a firing position is all outside the realm of reality for these guys.

I'd still like to see the Holo Nute figure

DarkArtist

would love a holo Gunray, the Bongo Sub Obi Wan. If they were going to release yet another Droideka then I think they should finally give us a SA Destroyer Droid that folds up and all.

The newest Destroyer Droid is pretty close to that one; it's still missing the second set of wires on the arms, but otherwise I really like it.

It's just a kitbash of the original Droideka and the Saga version. I'd really like to see them get this right some day.

Of all those figures Holo Nute is pretty good. I'd also like "wet" Obi Wan from Naboo - but only because our Naboo Obi's are all so out of date. Even the TAC one (kitbashed to beat the band) wasn't acceptable by today's standards.

Ultimately, they could release one with a couple of different heads a la Dagobah Luke.

I'd like to see the cancelled rebel hangar technician released though not using the Imperial AT-ST driver body. Mostly so we get the starfighter access ladders and stuff but I also think it'd be a cool set. rather than a million and one pilots with no ships, some ground crew for the existing ships.

The tech would be cool, but I really want the ladders more. I was hoping last years y-wing would have one. Heck make a battle pack of a pilot, tech, ladders and a sled and call it a day.
