I find it hard to believe they would make this line up of figures.

Jira? That seems pretty hard to believe. Jira before Kitster? Umm.

I can't see them ever making Senator Grebleips either.

Nice list. Hopefully there's some accuracy to it. :)

Still missing Jar Jar in Senate Robes (Apartment Outfit)

I find it hard to believe they would make this line up of figures.Yeah, there aren't hardly enough Clone troopers.:D


Jira? That seems pretty hard to believe. Jira before Kitster? Umm.Hasbro does similar things daily it seems. Christ, they made two Shu Mai figures before anyone in the Lars family. Then they saw fit to resculpt Greedo, Bossk, IG-88, and Hammerhead twice before making passable Dr Evazans or Uncle Owens.

I tend to be skeptical about lists, but this one has some promising stuff. Especially Mawhonic. I loves me the podracers (pretty much the only SW figures I actively seek out and collect anymore).

jjreason
08-15-2008, 02:09 PM
Well, I hate the list so it's likely accurate. :(

Snowspeeder Wedge might be a pick up, and we'll see about DS Han & Chewie.

Jargo
08-15-2008, 02:28 PM
SA Wuher no way
SA Kitik Keed'kak no way
SA Anakin Skywalker (Outland Peasant Disguise) no way
Holiday Special Ultimate Battlepack due December 2009 (Exclusive TBD)
Chewbaca family, Gormaanda, Stormtrooper, Imperial Officer no way
Jira highly doubtful
Senator Grebleips no way

Cydon Prax would be a waste of plastic

the rest of the list sounds feasible at least.

Another day, another rumor list. Like I've said before, pretty good if it turns out to be true, but I won't believe it until I see it.

ANH Wave: Total waste, sadly enough. There are so many unmade characters from this movie, that more regurgitations of the core characters is a waste. Wuher might be worthwhile, but, since he never does anything, I doubt it.

Holiday Special Ultimate Battlepack: I doubt it, but it sounds really cool. I would rather have Ackmena, but Lumpy and Gormaanda are almost as good. If this comes to pass, I won't even care about the worthless Imperials.

ESB: Mixed bag. Definitely want Utris and the Ugnaught. Tauntaun rider? Maybe. I suppose a new Zuckuss is cool, too. But, damn, another Dengar? And even I had to look up Tian Chyler. Talk about obscure!

"Wampa Attack" Battlepack: I really hope I don't have to buy this to get Torryn, but it, sadly, wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if this is the way they release her. :(

TPM: This is the best wave of the bunch, hands down, even if four of the figures would be half-sized. (Let's hope that Grebleips comes with a senate pod to balance the costs.) I'd gladly take all eight of these guys in a heartbeat. (Even I'm having a hard time not getting excited by this wave.)

ROTS: Urban Clonetrooper? WTF? Is the Batman team taking over? :rolleyes: I've been passing on ghosts and holos lately, so Gor'd would be the only one I want. Cydon is a bit of an odd choice. Maybe Cody will be the right size this time; though I couldn't care less, that should make a lot of people happy.

AOTC: Please, God, if anything here is true, let it be Cliegg Lars and the resculpt of the outland disguise Anakin. The others I don't care much about. Especially Jaster Mareel. Wouldn't that just be Boba Fett without the wookiee braids, and maybe with a new head if the helmet is removeable?

Jargo
08-15-2008, 02:42 PM
it reads more like an internal pre-planning list. the type where everyone chucks ideas into the mix and then they distill it. doesn't read like an upcoming figures list to me. or the sort of list where a few rumours thrown out and someone adds their own wishlist to it.

ummm. not doubting you for a minute Mister Roboto but where do you work and how did you find out?

ANH - I have them all if the scuplt is a major improvement I may be tempted

Holiday Special Ultimate Battlepack due December 2009 (Exclusive TBD)
Chewbaca family, Gormaanda, Stormtrooper, Imperial Officer - No Ackmeda? I'll pass

ESB - decent wave I would buy all of the new figures and likely some of the rescuplts

"Wampa Attack" Battlepack (Toryn Farr, Han Solo, a Wampa, and a Tauntaun) - I would unfortunately buy this for Toryn Farr

TPM - This wave has pegwarmer written all over it old ladies, senators, kids, and Nemodians. That being said I would would likely buy everything.

ROTS - Fair wave I don't need a Cody and have no idea what an Urban Commando Clonetrooper is but the rest are ok.

AOTC - this would be a good wave except for the Demolitions Specialist Clontrooper unless you take of the helmet and it is Firefly underneath.

The list seems like one particular fanboy list.

There are just a few from that list I'd REALLY want. Many I have no clue who they are.

ANH

Nothing interesting there.

Holiday Special Ultimate Battlepack

I'll never understand the desire for figures from this program. I watched this for the first time earlier this year and it made me like Star Wars a little less.

ESB

Hoth Rebel Wedge --Big fan of Wedge; like pilots.

Ugnaught w/ demolished IG-88-A --Maybe.

Build-a-Droids: R3-A1, R3-O2 --I'm a completist on astromechs, so I'll get them.

"Wampa Attack" Battlepack --I'll get whatever has Toryn Farr in it.

TPM

Build-a-Droid: R4-D4, R7-B8 --Yep, more astromechs, so I'll get these.

ROTS

Urban Commando Clonetrooper --I'm up for at least one of any clone.

Grievous' Bodyguard (all-new sculpt) --Possibly. I've been quite unhappy with previous versions.

Build-a-Droid: V-3PO --I'm always willing to consider more protocol droids.

AOTC

Demolitions Specialist Clonetrooper --Ditto my earlier clone comment.

Jaster Mereel --I'm completist on Mandos.

Build-a-Droid: Q-3PO --More protocol droids is a good thing.

I don't like the vast majority of the figures on this list, and honestly don't buy that it's true.

And if it IS true, I sure as hell am not going to buy much out of it.

So either way, I don't buy it.

Regarding the ESB Battle Pack with the Wampa, Tauntaun, Torryn Farr, and Han Solo...

Do we need a 5th Hoth Han Solo figure? This would make 5 (if it's with the snow gear outfit).

1. VOTC

2. Target Exclusive Hoth Ultimate Battle Pack

3. Wal Mart Exclusive Droid Factory 2 Pack

4. Legacy Collection Hoth Recon Battle Pack

5. Wampa Attack Battle Pack (rumored).

Did I miss any other releases for this figure? I know that they've all been slightly different, but because I already have 3 of these, I'm on the fence on the Hoth Recon BP (I just want it for the droids). So unless this "rumored" BP has Han with the brown trousers and black coat, I'll probably pass just on principle.

This was one of my favorite (original vintage) figures when I was little along with the Bespin Luke, but enough is enough. They've had 4 variations already in a year.

Kidhuman
08-15-2008, 06:52 PM
Well, I for one am gassed about the TPM wave and the Torryn Farr BP. From what Roboto has told me in the past, most of it has come to pass, so be prepared for these figures

cookiemonster
08-15-2008, 07:03 PM
Well it looks like the Newbie is going to upset the apple cart.

Figures I would willingly purchase, before another clone.

ANH
ANH Leia w/ Interrogation droid - Rumored on anotheR Site already so looking forward to this (as long as she is SA)
Death Star Escape Chewbacca w/ binders & mouse droid - Rumored on anotheR Site looking forward to this (as long as SA)
SA Wuher - Willingly Buy It
SA Kitik Keed'kak - Willingly Buy It
Build-a-Droid: YB-RA-7 (ok not sure who this is but hey its a Death Star Droid type Protocol Droid so Yup want)

Holiday Special Ultimate Battlepack due December 2009 (Exclusive TBD)
Chewbaca family, Gormaanda, Stormtrooper, Imperial Officer - I want the Cantina patrons first, but a female wookiee could be good for customs, then theres the Stormtrooper always handy (and they cant add multi colors to him), Imperial Officer as long as it's SA or done with the DSB new sculpt officer bodys then I am fine with it, Gormaanda well theres always a stinker in every BP.

ESB
Utris M'Toc - Ok a Must buy
Rebel Tauntan Rider - If its the one I am thinking of cool, hopefully packed with a new tauntaun (after all we dont know if these are going to be Basic Figures)
Hoth Rebel Wedge - Its another buy
Ugnaught w/ demolished IG-88-A - and another buy
Tian Chyler - Yup another buy
Zuckuss - Yes Please
Dengar - Yes Please (although in truth I am happy with the one I have)
Build-a-Droids: R3-A1, R3-O2 (more astromechs yes please)

"Wampa Attack" Battlepack (Toryn Farr, Han Solo, a Wampa, and a Tauntaun) - Its a Buy

TPM
Mawhonic - Its a Buy
Pod Racer Anakin - Its a wait until I see it
Weazel - Its a Buy
Wald - Its a wait and see
Tey How - Its a possible buy
Build-a-Droid: R4-D4, R7-B8 (hmmmmmm, I will have to wait and see)

ROTS
Gor'd Chonk (the fat Polis Massan) - ?????????
Cydon Prax - ????????
Grievous' Bodyguard (all-new sculpt) - Possible Buy
Build-a-Droid: V-3PO - Wait and see

AOTC
Build-a-Droid: Q-3PO - Wait and see

Rocketboy
08-15-2008, 07:37 PM
Cappy told me how ridiculous this list was and I had to see it.
Sounds like Hasbro has somehow scraped through the bottom of the barrel.

Han, Chewie, Luke and Leia - A lot of Death Star figures on that list...Is there something else on the horizon? We know Hasbro is experimenting with semi-playsets (like the Sarlaac).
SA Wuher & Kitik Keed'kak - If true,which I doubt, no way are they SA. There's no point in that.

Holiday Special Ultimate Battlepack - Total BS. Lucasfilm doesn't even like to acknowledge it exists. I can't see them approving toys (Boba Fett being the exception).

ESB - most of the these are "Who?" figures.
Carbon Freeze Vader - What, is he gonna have some orange paint slopped on him?

Pod Racer Anakin - Ooh! With a removable helmet and dirty face underneath? *sigh*
Senator Grebleips - BS. Too much red tape.

Spirit of Qui-Gon Jinn - BS. Not even in the movies or even a deleted scene.
Urban Commando Clonetrooper - as long as he has some bling. Can we get a Suburban Clone next? [/sarcasm]
Grievous' Bodyguard (all-new sculpt) - Yet another one?

AOTC - *yawn*

Qui-Long Gone
08-15-2008, 08:39 PM
WTF? Am I right in noticing no ROTJ figures rumored? How does that happen?

WTF is a carbon freeze Vader? Why not invest in a well made carbon freeze Solo (no salsa stained shirt please....no glowing red carbon please....)?

I'll take anything ANH if it involves 1.) retro trash compactor playset, and 2.) Dianogah!

bigbarada
08-15-2008, 08:48 PM

I'm thinking that this list is in conjunction with the previous rumor list from Galactic Hunter (which only cover half a year's worth of figures).

WTF is a carbon freeze Vader? Why not invest in a well made carbon freeze Solo (no salsa stained shirt please....no glowing red carbon please....)?I was wondering the same thing. I'm kind of hoping for a blueish/orangish thing going on. For some reason I think it sounds pretty alright if that's the route they choose to go.

Cane_Adiss
08-15-2008, 11:10 PM
Honestly, this list doesn't sound very legitimate to me. Many of the figures I would buy, but as stated by someone earlier it sounds more like a fan's personal want list than a plausible plan for the future. And no "rumors" for ROTJ?

ANH - All these figures I could see as possibilities, except for Kitik and Wuher. If anything I could see the current Kitik repainted green and released in a battle pack or something. I doub't they'd resculpt a character so obscure she can't even be seen clearly in the movie. And Hasbro needed alot of arm twisting to even make Wuher in the first place, so will they feel there's a need to revisit him? Doubt it.

Holiday Special Ultimate Battlepack - Highly doubtful. Gormaanda would be interesting though.

ESB - All of these figures I could see being made eventually. It would be a shame for Toryn Farr to only appear in a battle pack, even if I'm not really excited for her figure. She should be basic carded. Plus didn't we just get a battle pack almost like this one as a TRU exclusive? And I doubt with all the Hoth Hans they just put out (3?) based on the same sculpt they'd go and do another.

TPM - Ok, some of these figures look a little suspicious. Weazel? Jira? Not that I wouldn't want to see them made, but they don't strike me as figures Hasbro would be interested in making. And for Greblieps, as much as I'd love a figure of him I don't see it happening ever. If a wave were to come out such as this one, I think it would be the pegwarming wave of the year.

ROTS - I could see a wave like this one, but without the Qui-Gon or Cydon Prax figures. Neither of them appeared in the movie, EU version or otherwise so they'd be a stretch. Although I would see them doing either the Mon Calamari dancer or the Lava Flea before the Polis Massan because they stated that those were figures they personally were hoping to get to eventually, and there hasn't been much outcry for a new Polis Massan.

AOTC - This whole wave looks iffy to me. I can't see where Jaster Mereel fits into an AOTC wave. The only plausible figures in my mind would be Cliegg, Anakin and Obi-Wan.

08-16-2008, 05:26 AM
Utris M'Toc and Wald are the standouts for me, they're both high on my wants list. I'd also love to finally get definitive classic versions of Luke and Leia (SA, no soft goods on Luke, removable stormtrooper belt, etc). But most of this list is scraping the barrel, and I really hope we don't get yet another ROTS wave with no Utai. But the Holiday Special figures (especially Gormaanda) make me very sceptical about the whole list. The wookiee family would be cool though.

sebillba
08-17-2008, 01:52 AM
It seems at least three of these rumours have been quashed in this weeks Q&As..... no plans for a new EpIV Leia (http://www.sandtroopers.com/smf/index.php?topic=8437.msg202976#msg202976).... no Cliegg in the works yet (http://www.theprivateuniverse.co.uk/cgi-bin/showarticle.pl?section=news&articleid=3348) (Beru likely within a year, but no mention of Owen!! :( ).... and they can't approach the Holiday Special (http://www.imperialshipyards.net/SMF/index.php?topic=192.new#new).

Well the Greblieps are basically the same alien from ET, so I could see them selling a few of em. But as far as Jira and Weazel my god no. I would like to see a new Qui Gon without the giraffe neck. I think I might return the Jedi Legacy, because I bought it for the Qui Gon, but he looks funky as hell.

Cane_Adiss
08-17-2008, 08:53 AM

That's exactly why they probably wouldn't make him. Theres too much "red tape" legally as someone else put it. There's probably licensing issues that would prevent this one. Though I'd buy him in a heart beat!

I tend to be mistrustful of such direct answers from Hasbro, based on all sorts of "no, we're not making the new figures in animated style" answers in the past.

And if they "can't approach" the Holiday Special, why did I see that pastel Boba Fett pegwarming last year, and why do I have a Zutton figure in my collection?

Well we've now got SA versions of Hoth Han with hood up, hood down, both in blue and brown, so I can't imagine needing another one. Tatooine Luke on the other hand... we still haven't got a definitive version - we haven't even got one with both knees and elbows!! (And I don't count the VOTC version because the soft goods don't fit in well with other figures.)

Some of these seem like pretty decent offerings and I have no reason to believe they won't be made. I seem to recall a while back Roboto gave some figure info and sure enough they came out some time later. I generally don't believe these lists but with all of the main characters being released a million times these seem like the bottom of the barrel figures that we'll be seeing.

The one that I'm interested in seeing is the Carbon Freeze Vader. At first I thought carp but then I remembered the old Decipher card from the SWCCG and how eerie it looked with the smoke and the different colors playing off of his helmet and how, if pulled off correctly, it could look good.

El Chuxter
08-17-2008, 06:43 PM
I'd be interested what logic went into that Wampa Battlepack. A Wampa and Tauntaun is almost like the one from this (last?) year, but Torryn Farr would mean it's at Echo Base. Could it be a dead Tauntaun from the (mostly) cut subplot about invading Wampas? And, if so, why Han and not 2-1B?

Jaster MereelCliegg Lars
Obi-Wan Kenobi
Build-a-Droid: Q-3PO

as cool as this list sounds alot seems fishy (especially Star Wars Holiday Special Battlepack ?????? What the black thorn in Lucas' side.)

AOTC

Jastel Mereel ??? while I would love to see the figure made was this guy even in any of the SW movies.

Demolitions Specialist Clonetrooper - is this a repack of Scorch from Republic Commando.

ROTS

Spirit of Qui Gon - another character while mentioned and heard not in the movie. i can see them doing a hologram of him but that's about it

ESB

Wampa Attack Battlepack - too good to be true if it comes with Toryn Farr
Tauntaun Rider - could be a cool background non descript Rebel
Carbon Freeze Vader - is this going to be a repaint of the Emperor's Wraith Vader with reddish orange highlights ?

ANH

SA Wuher - can't see Hasbro ever redoing this character.

cookiemonster
10-13-2008, 05:30 PM
I can see them remaking Wuher and including him with the Drinks Dispenser for the Cantina, likewise I can see them re-doing Kitik Keed'kak and releasing her with a short Bar Counter Piece.

Are these going to be SA, I dont know but I do think the articulation is going to be brought upto date, and I am looking forward to these if we are going to get them, how many people didnt want Yarna or Willrow, or Malakili redone however it is happening, so yeah I can see these getting improved and released.

Like I said and I am the first one to admit it, I want all the figures that have been done before the SAGA to be brought upto date and I dont mean just repacked, I mean new tools and resculpts. I still want a furry footed Vintage Snaggletooth.

I have to agree with most of the people in the forum. It sounds more like a wish list than something Hasbro would actually do. There are not enough troopers, aliens/bounty hunters, and jedi the seeming bread and butter of Hasbro.

A number of the figures got me really excited. I want the E.T. Senator, but it always seemed like a fantasy, most kids would have no idea where is was in TPM.

the ROTJ sounds ridiculous. I thought Cydon Prax was awesome in the Clone Wars video game, but he was a one shot (unless you count his appearance in the Young Boba Fett books) for a game many people did not play. I would love a figure of him, but I don't ever see it happening.

Also, if they released a fat polis massan before they released ROTS Nute Gunray, a character with lines, referenced by NAME, and the whole reason Anakin Skywalker was on Mustafar to begin with...if he was shoved aside for some obese polis massan...I would probably start crying in the middle of the store.
