    2006-2007 Figure Waves That We'd Like To See

    These waves of figures were designed to make the most sense:
    • They use the ROTS Top 20 List Figures made on this site
    • They use the Scene-By-Scene Most Wanted Figures from the lists formed and voted on by this site
    • They include CORE characters in most waves designated in bold
    • They are themed like 2004's "Tatooine Wave, Hoth Wave, Jabba's Palace Wave, etc."
    • They interchange from one movie to the next, to keep it exciting for Classic and Prequel collectors
    • It starts with Classic Star Wars, a return to basics, and continues quickly with the newest hype, ROTS


    I think this would be what a lot of folks would like:

    Anyway, then the figures that you still want that you don't see on these lists could be made, and preparations for figures for the Star Wars TV series (Fall 2007) could be made.

    That's the way I'd do it anyway!

    EDIT: Hasbro likes to keep all characters available in their retail partners' stores so that new kids, who are 2 or 3 years old NOW, can buy all their main characters next year (when they are old enough - or their parents decide they have enough money to not have to share their own collection). Anyway, fresh blood in the hobby keeps it alive - and have you planned for having twin sons who suddenly want to play with YOUR collection?

    Lacking on my lists (for that reason) are most notably: Darth Vader, Leia, Obi-Wan, classic Stormtroopers (though we have plenty of clones), Chewie, C-3PO, Yoda, Boba Fett -though he looks just like his unhelmeted father, Qui-Gon Jinn, JarJar Binks, Darth Maul, Battle Droids, Super Battle Droids, Destroyer Droids, Palpatine, Mace Windu, Count Dooku, General Grievous, and more random Jedi.

    Hmmm, that's 70 figures!

    I like most of your choices and case breakdowns. Nothing really shortpacked and army builders/popular characters are more plenitful as they should be.

    So, you know this means it isn't going t happen then, right???

    Ah well, it's nice to dream isn't it...
    Move along, move along

    What's funny is that it's about 56 figures in 2006 - like we got this year - only this year Hasbro's taking it up to 68 on ROTS cards anyway - so some of that list WILL DEFINITELY get done this year. Wait for Comic Con for an announcement for the next 12 ROTS figures.

    The remainder of the listed figures from possible 2007 waves were only 12 or so more - right? So if they did the ROTS figures mostly THIS YEAR, all of this list could be completed by the end of 2006 next year.

    If we take into account the 18 "regulars" Hasbro would still like in the collection for newbies (ie Darth Maul, Qui-Gon, Chewie, etc.) then it still spaces out much like I have it listed, taking until April and May of 2007 to wrap up, versus 2 months earlier (while we moan about another JarJar figure taking up space in the case before we get Herme Odel).

    But this is still very possible if Hasbro produces what we voted for. I think the character and movie balance of these waves are right-on as well. I even repeated the Han's and Luke's here and there, so that main-characters would be out - but newer versions that couldn't have pegwarmed as much as say another Luke Tatooine would.

    Those are some excellent ideas! Just to add a little bit if that is ok....
    All of teh Ewok figures should come with various Imperial troop helmets. And also instead of repeating the hoth damaged luke. Have one made that comes with a soft plastic Taun-Taun that you can stuff Luke into, that would be mint!!

    Tycho-great ideas. I would add two or three Kenobis though.

    I'll give you credit Tycho you really put a lot of thought into your lists, they are pretty good.
    You'll be sorry, Pee-Wee Herman!

    Re: 2006-2007 Figure Waves That We'd Like To See

    What can I say, I really like the ideas & lists, but do you really think Hasbro knows what they are doing? The lists are awesome, but I'm sure Hasbro would drop the ball somehow.
    THANKS FOR THE AT-TE & FALCON HASBRO. NOW IT'S TIME FOR A LARGE TANTIVE IV!
