    TOONbuck.

    I honestly don't know if there's a point right now to doing a new-characters-only poll what with so few main faces left to do and the line suffering so painfully from over-exposure to background guys amongst a myriad of other problems.

    Rogwa Wodrata is the one who is barely visible though, while stupid Toonbuck Toora is very visible in TPM, you can't miss something which looks that dopey.

    Read here for more info on the Separatist Council:

    Thanks.

    As to the line's problems, I don't think it can be resolved.

    A) Legends should keep going:

    1) Luke
    2) Han
    3) Chewie
    4) Vader
    5) Imperial trooper of some sort
    6) Obi-Wan of some film
    7) Yoda
    8) Boba Fett
    9) Anakin in some adult form
    10) Battle Droid of some type (reg, Sup, dest, magna, spec.)
    11) Count Dooku or General Grievous
    12) Clone Trooper in some form

    B) Legacy could continue with NO main characters in the line, and just be background characters with some good "B-players" mixed in like updates to:

    1) Leia
    2) C-3PO
    3) R2-D2
    4) Lando
    5) Qui-Gon Jinn or JarJar
    6) Padme (always a new never-made outfit)
    7) Palpatine (could be all-new outfits for now)
    8) Ewoks
    9) Jango Fett or some Clone Commander or special unit member
    10) a Separatis war droid not shipping at that moment in Legends

    Then run all the rest of these obscure background characters we really want, like Cliegg Lars or Bom Vimdim in this lower production number line. EU figures could be worked in here at maybe 6 (non-main movie characters) per year, until it might be feasible to bring the Comic 2-packs back.


    Clone Wars would run steadily separate.

    If you ran Legacy that way, it'd be dead in 3 months. It needs main guys to stay alive.

    The main guys would be on the pegs from the Legends.

    Legacy would ship in real low numbers being replenished as needed. It might not die, but be cut back to 6 or less waves per year.

    I'm fine with only going shopping for it 6 times in a year as well.

    The Legacy figures would sell to collectors like myself, and others who voted for them in this poll, and randomly to kids who want them to interact with their Legends figures so they can make Princess Leia join Han, Luke, and Chewie or have Jango Fett fight Obi-Wan.

    That's the way the lines sell right now anyways. I don't think there is the Ultimate Bail Organa Collector out there. However, if they made his speeder pilot outfit, folks and even kids might want to recreate the 501st Executing Order 66 on Jett Zukasa while Organa is a first-person witness. I do. But I'm only buying one or two Bail figures in that outfit and I have probably 20 or more troops for my 501st Legion.

    I really don't want Hasbro to run the background characters in their own line. I worry that line would underperform and Hasbro would just cut them. I think Hasbro is sneaking the background characters into the line because they like them or know collectors like them. I think a balance between main characters and background characters is important and don't think it would be healthy to split them into separate lines.

    Legends is a separate SKU, if Legends is the only place for new guys, retailers won't order the TLC sku.

    OK. You guys have convinced me. What you said made sense when it comes to how retailers will look at a slow-moving line, especially how Target likes to clearance and cancel. However, Toys R Us will carry my proposed 2012 Legacy line that won't sell until approximately 2017 when they will try a buy-one-get-one-free sale.

    Meanwhile, I'll repost our winners so that those seeing 20 posts per page or something like that will have a reference:

    49. Tonbuck Toora (Separatist Leadership Council, giant mouse is actually Rogwa)
    50. Padme Black Leather Temptation






    This is 34 figures out of 50.


    Here's our TO DO LIST of everyone that's left from the above checklist:

    Cliegg Lars
    Tey How
    R2D2 Lightsaber Launcher (Jabba's Sailbarge)
    Bom Vimdim
    Queen Jamilla (AOTC)
    Daultry Dofine
    Torryn Farr
    Jocasta Nu
    Ben Quadrinaros
    Tonnika Sister
    Reegesk (Ranat - Cantina)
    Padme Senator (AOTC)
    Sgt. Doaylln
    Treva Horme
    Slim Aloo
    Tonbuck Toora

    Crunching some numbers, I see:

    34 done.

    16 to go - so we're 68% done!

    8 left are from the OT
    8 are from the PT - so it's a very even 50-50 split.

    8 characters are human (in some sort of way)
    7 characters are aliens
    1 character is a droid
    3 are Separatists
    1 is a Jedi
    2 are Rebels (includes R2D2)
    3 are cantina aliens
    2 are from Jabba's Palace (includes R2D2 saber launcher)

    This effort was launched May 24, 2004. The list was delivered around the end of April, 2005 at C3. So that puts us at 66 months now (5 1/2 years) if you're timing our progress with Hasbro.


    Looking at our list:

    Good candidates for carded sales might be -

    Cliegg Lars - he's so different and a top collector-demanded figure
    R2D2 Lightsaber Launcher (Jabba's Sailbarge)
    Bom Vimdim - a cool looking OT alien
    Reegesk (Ranat - Cantina) - ditto
    Padme Senator (AOTC) - a popular outfit for her, as she wore something like this in CW (micro-series and on-going series both)
    Sgt. Doaylln - a warrior-like looking figure from Jabba's thugs
    Rogwa Woodrata Tonbuck Toora - the 2nd to last Separatist Leader we need

    Treva Horme might do alright as he's sort of interesting, but only those looking behind the scenes of ESB will know him well
    Torryn Far could do OK as a female warrior figure

    The rest of the list includes slow-to-move Niemoidians, the most cartoony Podracer, a figure(s) Hasbro can't get the rights to produce, boring figures (but nevertheless ones I want), and the controversial Jocasta Nu - who when packaged with a lightsaber, might be at least a little more interesting (though I want her badly for my diorama as well).


    [the rest of our list for reference:]

    Tey How
    Queen Jamilla (AOTC)
    Daultry Dofine
    Jocasta Nu
    Ben Quadrinaros
    Tonnika Sister

    It looks like R2D2 Lightsaber Launcher can come off this list.

    Hey Tycho,

    It's been a while since we updated this. Looks like the list can be changed again. Seems like Wooof, Bom Vimdin, and R2 launching lightsaber from the sail barge can come off.

    I think we're down to 14 out of 50. Remarkable!

    5. Cliegg Lars (AOTC)
    9. Tey How (Niemoidian controller with eye and mouth pieces)
    16. Queen Jamilla (Naboo Queen - AOTC)
    18. Daultry Dofine (Captain, Trade Federation Droid Control Ship)
    20. Torryn Far (female Hoth Rebel Solider, Ion Cannon Control)
    24. Jocasta Nu (Jedi Librarian)
    27. Ben Quadrinaros (pod racer)
    28. Tonnika Sister Brea or Senni from the Mos Eisley Cantina
    31. Reegesk, Ranat (rodent like creature, Mos Eisley Cantina)
    34. Padme Senator (AOTC - Palpatine's Office, Padme's Apartment)
    42. Sgt. Doallyn, Jabba's Palace (black helmet, thrown as Boussh enters)
    45. Treva Horme, Cloud City (tall alien background character)
    46. Slim Aloo, Imp Dignitary (original dignitary made by Kenner in 1985)
    49. Tonbuck Toora (Separatist Leadership Council, giant mouse is actually Rogwa)

    I'm interested to see if they make Tey How and Quardinaros next year when Phantom Menace comes out in
    3D. They usually make most everyone's list of TPM that should still be made. I think Kitster and Wald have a good chance though they didn't make our final list. I think that next year is the best chance for those TPM characters on this list ever being made. I think Dofine will probably NEVER be made.

    The last 3D movie, Jedi, will come out in 2017. Interestingly, they always said the license expired in 2018, I think. So barring an extension, the figures they choose to put with the movie release may be the last figures we may get from each off from this list.

    I bet we get about half of these 14 made.

    Will do Droid. Yeah, it's been a while, but this progress is still pretty satisfying.


    We've been doing great with our request list and Hasbro is really listening!

    Bom Vimdim has also come off the list, because I think I recall seeing a picture of him - and Hasbro did confirm him. I think Sgt. Doayllyn is also slated, as well, but I'm not sure on that one.
