While some of the VOTC figures were pretty awful (Kenobi), most of them were great, in my opinion... So I got to thinking (and I apologize if this has been discussed before)- what if they did the same kind of thing for the prequel trilogy? Four well-articulated, well-detailed (and better than VOTC) figures per movie, for episodes I, II, and III. What would you have them be? Here are my picks...
-Darth Maul (with lightsaber blades that are the correct length)
-Battle Droid (that folds up completely)
-Senator Palpatine/Darth Sidious (would be easy to do- just have a removable black robe w/hood)
-Padme (white outfit- best action costume for the character, IMO)
-Droideka (one that is proportioned correctly and folds into the wheel. Don't tell me they can't do it- they absolutely can)
-Anakin (with variant head for Episode II haricut)
-Obi-Wan (with variant heads for Episodes I and II haircut and shave)
-Super Battle Droid
-General Grievous (cloth cape w/ hilt holders, opening gut compartment)
I left out Yoda, Dooku, and Clone Trooper because I think we already have satisfying figures of them. Of course, this is all very wishful and unrealistic thinking anyway...
