    How does 2003's Classic Star Wars line-up suit you?

    Many Classic Star Wars fans have been in this hobby since its very beginning, and though I count myself amongst the new Clone Wars fans, I am also a dedicated Classic Star Wars enthusiast, and have been, since 1977. But in that category, our Hasbro products have been limited since a big movie year and a huge boon in popularity for Prequel Star Wars.

    But though the pickings are thinner, there's a lot if you think about it:

    Let's separate this year from next year.

    2003.............................................. .....................2004 (rumors - generally)

    Han Hoth.............................................. ........Imperial Dignitary 1*
    Chewbacca Mynock Hunt..............................Imperial Dignitary 2*
    Snowtrooper....................................... ..........Captain Antilles
    Luke (Darth Vader's Defeat).........................General Dadonna

    Boba Fett (Sarlaac Battle)...........................Leia Bespin Gown
    Yavin Hanger Crewer (acc pack).................
    Gamorrean Guard (acc pack).......................Bib Fortuna
    Boba Fett (300th Ann. in bty hntrs).............Luke Jedi (full articulation!)

    IG-88 (repack in bounty hunters)................
    Vader (Emp. Wrath, rpk in Imps)................
    ATST Driver (goggles OFF, in Imps).............
    Stormtrooper (in Imperials 4-pack).............

    * Might show up in 2003!

    TIE Fighter w. Pilot.....................................Twin Pod Cloud Car w. pilot
    Sandcrawler (???) w. RA-7, Jawa rpk.........Tatooine Skiff re-release
    Y-wing w. Pilot (???) repack, if it happens..
    A-wing Fighter (Green Squadron w. pilot)..


    12" Lando Skiff Guard..................................
    12" Han Solo "1975"....................................
    12" AT-ST Driver...........................................
    12" Max Rebo w. Keyboard..........................
    12" Sy Snootles & Droopy McCool................
    12" Gamorrean Guard..................................


    Unleashed Slave Leia
    Unleashed Darth Vader (meditation chamber)
    Unleashed Luke Skywalker (Darth Vader's Defeat)
    Unleashed Han Solo (Death Star Escape)
    Unleashed Boba Fett (Battle of Karkoon)
    Unleashed Darth Sidious (Emperor Palpatine)

    And there's probably stuff I forgot.

    But in my opinion:

    Unleashed looks great this year! I think we need Lando, Chewie, Stormtroopers, Old Ben Kenobi, and Tusken Raiders though. More Lukes, Hans, and Princess Leia's couldn't hurt either!

    12" rocks, though I hope to see the concentration on Jabba's Palace include a Weequay and Green Nikto (like Klaatu) in the near future, as well as Tessek, Oola, and Ree-Yees.

    The Sandcrawler better get released! I also think it's about time that Uncle Owen got his Lars' Family Landspeeder made for those Mos Eisley dioramas we always wanted to fill with more traffic. An Imperial Landing Craft or Blockade Runner might be a pipedream, but an Escape Pod is surely possible. The Falcon could be totally remolded, and the nicest large deluxe set! The Sailbarge is a must have, and in 2004, the year Hasbro has decided to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Return of the Jedi, I think it would make the crown piece! - especially with a skiff re-release the same year.

    The figures for 2003 leave the most to be desired:

    I like the Luke a lot! Next year's sounds even better though - with all the accessories and articulation, no action, scene-specific pose.

    Han Solo Hoth kicks butt. I couldn't say more good things about this figure.

    The Yavin Flight Crewer with the accessory pack is finally acknowledged, that's a good thing.

    Fett's a good figure, and Vader looks promising.

    I have to say that ones I've always wanted: Madine, Dadonna, Captain Antilles, more Ewoks including a wokling and Chief Chirpa's modern version, as well as not one, but Two (2!) Imperial Dignitaries, and a Cloud Car Pilot (or 2) really have me excited! Plus rumors of a new Jabba the Hutt, finally! I only hope we get J'Quille, Herme Odel, Klaatu, BJ, the Elom, and the Ishi Tibb, as well as some more skiff guards, too! Cantina Aliens are lacking this year, (2003), so I hope a better focus on Mos Eisley crops up between this year and next as well.

    I voted for more from the Cantina and Jabba's Palace. I like what they did with Han and Luke, but I generally don't need the same characters for my scenes, even if they are new and updated versions. I want new stuff, but I'd rather they be figures of characters that have never seen immortalization in plastic before!

    What do you guys think?
