    Re: VOTE for your Top 20 most wanted ROTS Figures Not Made Yet

    Im happy about the Ani to Vader evolutions, hopefully theyll release that Anakin Ep. III on a single card, same with the Vader. Those would be two that would sell extremly well

    Re: VOTE for your Top 20 most wanted ROTS Figures Not Made Yet

    Well I'm not especially thrilled with the way they are releasing the 501st Clones.

    I hate having any figures I'm not using in my dioramas....

    I did some math:

    RETURNING

    4 Anakins still carded (I don't have room yet to open everything for scenes)
    1 Clone Pilot still carded (no tailgunner in my ARC 170 yet - want a carded wall a little longer)

    I'd get 5 x $6.32 (after tax) = $31.60 back.

    Figuring these are $20 ?

    Spending $80 (plus tax) - $31.60 = $48.4 more for 12 501st Clones...

    = $4.03 per clone??? Not bad...

    IF THESE RETAIL FOR $20 each...

    If they are $25..... 100 - 31.60 = 68.40 more or $5.70 per Clone...still not bad....

    If they are $30.....120 - 31.60 = 88.40 = 7.37 per clone ...uh...choke.


    THIS ALL ASSUMES I CAN STILL RETURN 4 ANAKIN # 2 FIGURES (likely to Target or TRU since Wal-Mart's receipts are so darn specific).

    Now I'm ok with the extra Anakins - still need them for scenes however they are carded.

    But I have 3 extra Clone Pilots....

    It could get worse - buy an extra ARC 170 fighter??? I have extra R4-G9's because I can't take those back and I orginally was going to have 3 ARC-170 Fighters but reconsidered against that.

    However, I have 3 extra Plo Koon figures (1 POTJ, 2 AOTC). I could use his starfighter in the ORDER 66 scene, or have him and his Clones walking by his fighter, prior to Order 66 and their mission launch in a "Right Stuff" type of scene of my own EU - if I want to save $30 from the purchase of another ARC-170 fighter....

    Not sure how I'll move on this one. I can display the ARC 170 (#2) in another room that may have significantly less vehicles...I'm just not sure I want to call that much attention to this craft because it does that well enough on its own for being quite insignificant (compared with heroes ships like the X-wing it competes for attention with).

    Alright...I need a Mouse Droid.

    Looks like we can cross off the following figures Tycho since it has been announced that these are three of the last twelve figures in the ROTS line.

    -Commander Bly
    -Commander Gree
    -501st Legion Clone Trooper (Super Articulated)
    Talk Show Host Interviewing Joker: “Your said to have only killed about 600 people Joker. Now don’t take this the wrong way but I think you’ve been holding out on us.”

    Joker: “I don’t keep count. I’m going to kill everyone in this room.”

    Yay! I was right! Most of these 12 are repaints, or the same figure packed with a different weapon.

    Bly is just a repainted Commander
    501st is a painted #41
    Wookiee Warrior 1 is the Sneak Preview one with a cutesy little vinyl vest
    Wookiee Warrior 2 is the Battle Bash one painted like King Kong
    Gree appears to be a painted #41 (why they couldn't give him real suspenders instead of painting them on is beyond me)
    R4-P17 looks like it's a repainted R4-G9
    Holographic Plo Koon is the POTJ one molded in clear blue
    As is the Holo Aayla Secura, but from ROTS

    And it looks like we're getting yet another clone not in the movie--a grey Commander in the Evolutions set variant.

    And yet ANOTHER rerelease of the #2 Anakin-this time in lava colors

    Re: VOTE for your Top 20 most wanted ROTS Figures Not Made Yet

    Well, from the list of 12, two more ON our list got crossed out (Bly and Gree - yeaay!) and several others were ones that were getting votes requesting them here: Holo Aayla, and Holo Plo Koon. Why our Very-Most-Wanted-Cody is not amongst Hasbro's plans is beyond me.

    I agree that Commander Gree could have been a new sculpt. Bly only needed to be a repaint, but my friend from Galactic Hunter who saw them in person said he thought Bly was at least an altered sculpt - unless I misunderstood him. (Maybe he meant Bly in the movie?)

    The Astromech might also be one others here have requested.


    SSG's Top 20 Most-Wanted characters from ROTS:

    - Commander Cody
    - Blue Death Squad Clone (Jedi Temple Attack)-
    Commander Gree (Yoda's green camaouflaged Clone Cmdr.)

    - Aunt Beru Lars (with baby Luke Skywalker)
    - Uncle Owen Lars
    - Snow Clone (Mygeeto betrayal of Ki-Adi Mundi)
    - Commander Bly (Fallucia betrayal of Aayla Secura)
    - Queen Antilles-Organa (with baby Leia Organa)
    - Medic Clone (Utopau - "No one could have survived that fall, Sir.")
    - Senator Padme Amidala (hair in buns..."Annie, I'm pregnant.")
    - Padme Nabarrie-Skywalker (nightgown..."So love has blinded you?")
    - FX-6 Medical Droid ("Lord Vader, can you hear me?")
    - Niemoidian Ship Captain (Invisible Hand - "All batteries fire! Fire!")
    - Padme's birthing aide droid (Polis Massan - "Uba....Uba.")
    - Coruscant Fireship Pilot ("We'll guide you in.")
    - 21-B Medical Droid ("Where is Padme. Is she alright?")
    - Baron Papanoida (George Lucas' cameo during the Coruscant Opera)
    - Anakin Skywalker (regular Jedi robes. "May the Force be with you, Master.")
    - Palpatine's Shock-Troopers ("There's no sign of him, Sir.")-
    Commander Neyo - (BARC Speeder, Stass Allie's betrayer)
    [/QUOTE]


    Anyway, I'll print our list WITH THE CROSSOUTS so Hasbro can see they're somewhat on the ball, then bring it to them on Friday. We want all 20 of these made, and when we get them, we'll try to identify another 10 or 20 that haven't been made for next year.

    Rebelscum reported that 2006 wave 3 will include:

    Battle of Coruscant from Episode III will have 6 figures

    From this planet in the movie, we wanted:

    - Blue Death Squad Clone (Jedi Temple Attack)- (we're already getting)
    - Senator Padme Amidala (hair in buns..."Annie, I'm pregnant.")
    - Padme Nabarrie-Skywalker (nightgown..."So love has blinded you?")
    - FX-6 Medical Droid ("Lord Vader, can you hear me?")
    - Niemoidian Ship Captain (Invisible Hand - "All batteries fire! Fire!")
    - Coruscant Fireship Pilot ("We'll guide you in.")
    - 21-B Medical Droid ("Where is Padme. Is she alright?")
    - Baron Papanoida (George Lucas' cameo during the Coruscant Opera)
    - Anakin Skywalker (regular Jedi robes. "May the Force be with you, Master.") - credit to evolutions
    - Palpatine's Shock-Troopers ("There's no sign of him, Sir.")- (made now, also)

    I think Anakin is likely yet again. It will sell. A pilot figure would be nice though.

    Looking at Core Characters, Dooku and Grievous will come out again somehow, as will some of the battle droid types. Dooku could come in their Geonosian wave, but even if he didn't, 4 figures (Dooku, Grievous, Anakin, a type of BattleDroid) wouldn't be 6. I think a Padme figure will be likely. Which one? I don't know. Probably the buns. R2 could be better represented all new in the Endor wave. Palpatine is not a high-seller. Mace Windu could come out resculpted here (unfortunately - since he's not high on our list). A new Bail Organa isn't too likely either. The medical droids are from Coruscant, but they're not really from "the Battle of." A FireShip Pilot could be really, really likely for the good news. The Niemoidian Ship Captain is also not too far fetched if they are not releasing Nute Gunray in the Geonosis or Naboo waves. Repackaging the 501st or Shocktroopers yet again wouldn't be a surprise though. I'll get all I need THIS summer I hope, but it's not like they are going to sit if they do this. Padme and a Fireship Pilot are our best hopes at new figures from our list above.

    ROTS has seen its best days for figure releases already -and Cody doesn't fit into the Battle for Coruscant theme too well (that I can see - though they know he's the most wanted).

    (So they're finally doing him anyway)

    Anyway, good news.

    Hasbro really did a great job knocking these out. I've updated our ROTS list with the addition of Baron Poppanoida.

    There really isn't anywhere to go with this. ROTS is very near complete. Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen (same for AOTC) seem to be the biggest obstacles out there. A Lars family 3-pack from AOTC would solve a lot of that. Cody's Clone Troopers (Utapau) will also be welcome additions.

    I think Po Nudo (the Aqualish separatist) and Senator Tiikes (the Quarren) would be welcome additions. The medic clone (Utopau) is still a good choice.
