What does Vizam's cannon connect to?
For example, the shirtless human Skiff Guard wears the exact same outfit as Fozec, who we already know has been on Hasbro's radar for years now. Velken Tezeri, the most prominent human Skiff Guard (aside from Lando), wears an outfit identical to Nizuc Bek's. So there is a chance that Hasbro could make the more well known characters from Jabba's Palace and then just sculpt new heads and rerelease those figures again (with a Caucasian skin tone in the case of the shirtless human) in a new Skiff Guards multipack.
I am still angry that Hasbro said they will not be doing a sailbarge. I drew up my own plans to have the plastic cut and made for me, but my Tantive IV was $750 (partially because I made some materials ordering mistakes - but it was a learning experience).
I will wait and see however. I don't have funds to have my design built yet. But for sure it is coming.
Meanwhile, from the list we all voted on some years ago, at SSG, these figures have still never been made (that we as a group voted for):
1) Cliegg Lars - I asked Darryl about this one and he shrugged. He doesn't want to do Cliegg, I'm pretty sure. But what about how Jocastu Nu was released?
2) Guri - there are 3 potential outfits for her from the SOTE and SOTE: E comics. Personally I'd like them all made - spaced out of course.
3) *COUGH* Brea Tonnika (actress Christine Hewitt said OK to Hasbro and even to me in person at CII or III. She is sadly deceased)
4) Sim Aloo (Imperial Dignitary that Kenner originally made)
5) *COUGH* Senni Tonnika (this actress is the problem with the Tonnikas being made - and she'll insist she was Brea if they make Christine's figure).
6) Cane Adiss
7) Sgt. Doallyn - Yes!!! (skiff guard)
8) Tzizvvt - Yes!!! (Mos Eisley)
9) Mosep Binneed (Mos Eisley)
10) Joruus C'Boath (EU - Heir To The Empire) Yes!!!
11) Uncle Owen ANH - a new sculpt of Phil Brown's portrayal as Luke's uncle
12) Tey How (last member of the Trade Federation's Revenue's bridge crew, the Niemoidian with the eye pieces) yes!!!
13) Reegesk - a Ranat from Mos Eisley - Yes!!!
14) Jess - Han Solo's girlfriend from the deleted scene in the cantina I think
15) Taym-dren Garen - he shot Luke's hand - yes!!!
16) Baniss Keeg - the other Duro from Mos Eisley
17) Wald - Warwick Davis' Rodian from Mos Espa - Yes!!!
18) Kitster - Anakin's friend from Mos Espa - Yes!!!
These were runners-up or high rankers from Kidhuman's poll:
19) Treva Horme (Cloud City tall alien) - yes!!!
20) Nute Gunray ROTS
21) Shasha Teil - Ishi Tibb from Jabba's - yes!!!
22) Padme from the Senate / Palpatine's office - AOTC - yes!!!
23) Queen Jamilla - AOTC - yes!!!
24) Rogwa Woodrata - big furry Separatist from Dooku's meeting on Geonosis.
* Also of note, we voted for another Expanded Universe figure - Corran Horn. We have an X-wing pilot version, but perhaps a Jedi Knight is in order? I think we probably voted for the pilot, but CORSEC (when he was younger) is also a possibility. The Jedi first would please me.
Personally there are a lot of other good choices.
But in 3 waves of black series figures, I'm only buying 2 figures (Plageuis and Merimeru I think).
There's almost nothing interesting to me :(
I'd probably buy every figure above on our voted-for list except another Uncle Owen, Jess (maybe), and Nute Gunray E3. I made a Bannis Keeg a long time ago by adding the fabric Luke Ceremony jacket to Elorrs Madak.
Well, it doesn't matter anymore. :p
Having just seen remnants of TBS wave 1 at two more Targets, it seems that Anakin and the Biker Scout are already the slow movers. They are packed two to a case - and each Target has had at least one Anakin sold - but I'm a little surprised that Biggs isn't the immediate obvious pegwarmer.
The case has too many army-builders that don't feel necessary right now.
The scout trooper could have waited longer since the bike set is still in TRUs and only $12 more than this with an excellent bike. I've seen the most of him.
The clone pilot is just a "more of the same" feeling due to a lot of Clone Wars and prequel stuff the last 10 years or so.
The clone lt phase 1 is another colored white clone after a lot of recent white clones, and as good as the mold is, this use of it doesn't feel fresh or necessary at this stage.
All those were the ones I saw lingering, plus Ep 2 Anakin which I just am not interested in enough to drop $10 on, especially with another inaccurate likeness on the face.
I haven't seen Padme or Luke yet at all. Only saw 1x Biggs and 1x Vader so far, and I bought both of them because of BOGO50%.
This wave just feels very sleepy and repetitive, not enough surprises or fun or changeups from what dragged the other lines down. Biggs has a ship coming out soon and has a new sculpt and just feels like something that isn't constant. I didn't realize Biggs was 2x in this case though, now I am surprised to that he's not lingering... he probably will since he's also 1x in the wave 2 case, but I guess being orange on a black card helps him stand out.
