    12-incher they need to make!

    First on my list is a 12-inch Lak Sirvak A 12 inch shivistian wolfman would rock. It is too bad Lucas removed him from from the cantina. Next would be a 12inch Porkins. He would come with Bucket o chicken accessory and a tube of grease for flight suit staining.
    Sigh... For once in my life i have nothing to say...

    Most people won't like my choice, but I would have loved to have an EP2 Anakin with his Jedi robe and his Swoop Bike, from the scene where he's racing to save his mother. Also, give him the other two lightsabers he had when fighting Dooku in addition to his normal one.

    Re: 12-incher they need to make!

    I always thought one of the worst decisions hasbro made with the 12" line was when they went away from the exclusive 2-packs of the CS era. Those allowed them to crank out a variety of figures and some less mainstream ones, too, without going by the wave format -- giving COLLECTORS not kids a chance to get more unique figures without all the rehashes.
    Now that the line is in its 11th hour, it would be cool to see hasbro bring back the exclusive 2-packs (although, now, there probably arent any stores that would take them).
    The much requested 2-1B/FX-7, Leia bespin/Lobot, Lando general/ Nien Numb, the 2 main dignitaries seen in the throne room with the emperor, and the scrapped rebo band consisting of Max/organ & Droopy/Snootles.
    Of course as many have said it would be really cool to see a wave of Hammerhead/Gonk/Snaggletooth to complete the vintage 21, but that'll never happen.

    I wish another toymaker was making the 12 inch line. HAsbro has never really produced 12 inchers that were compelling enough for me to fall in love with...

    Good point and excellent suggestions, Turambar! I would add a 12" Uncle Owen/Aunt Beru 2-pack (from ANH) to your list. But all your 2-pack ideas would be this 12" collector's dream come true. And I hope you're wrong about Hasbro never completing the vintage 21. Come on, Hasbro, please pay more attention to your loyal 12" collectors, and take our wish lists seriously...

    Right on! An Owen/Beru 2-pack would be pretty cool. The truth is that we 12" collectors have been dreaming about great ways hasbro could put out desirable products for years, now. Instead, they turn a deaf ear to us and continue with rehash after tired rehash most of the time one more inferior in quality than the next.
    I don't want 25 or 30 more figures. Less than 15 would suit me:
    1. Leia Bespin
    2. 3. 4. Hammerhead, Gonk, Snaggletooth
    5. 6. 7. Rebo, Snootles, Droopy
    8. Lando General
    9. Nien Numb
    10. 2-1B
    11. General Veers
    12. FX-7
    13. Lobot
    14. Weequay
    After that, like you mentioned Owen/Beru, or dignitaries, Teebo. The thing is Hasbro could continue with 3 figure waves twice a year AND store exclusive 2 packs just like the CS years we could get gobs of unique figures in one year!
    I still think the line is all but dead.
    However, the quality of the E3 figures gives me some hope. Not being trilogy characters, I'm not interested in collecting these, but they look like they should do well. I hope they do, anyway.
