    You're in charge of new figures... How do you run things?

    This is a totally theoretically thread, but it may require a bit of thought on everyone's part.

    The rules are fairly simple. Hasbro has just called you up and said, "You're in charge of new figures until 2018."

    Assume all the more credible rumors for 2007 are correct, and that these are the only new figures we're getting in 2007. Your job starts in 2008.

    Every year you will have ten points to assign to new figures:
    • Each basic, newly-sculpted figure counts as one point.
    • If a figure can be kitbashed or repainted from existing figures, with only the most minor of re-tooling, it counts as half a point. However, you must list the parts used.
    • If a figure is larger than a Wookiee, but smaller than Graxxol Kelvyn, it counts as a deluxe figure, which is two points.
    • Accessories up to the size of a speeder bike can be included with a figure and considered to be a deluxe (two points). Anything larger is a beast/vehicle.
    • Two-packs of standard figures that are based on existing sculpts, or which are more than 75% similar to one another can be considered deluxe (two points).
    • Deluxe figures are two points, whether based on existing molds or not.
    • Smaller figures are assigned points based on articulation. If you want a figure with Chirpa-type articulation, he's a whole point. If you're okay with limited articulation, two small figures can be packaged together for one point. This can include one adult with one child (Gungan female with child, for example).

    In addition to the figures, you can choose one new beast or vehicle (regardless of size) for each year.

    The figures and vehicles do not have to follow any theme. Hasbro will be choosing re-releases of existing figures to best fit in with any figures you create. Likewise, do not be overly concerned about core characters; Hasbro will be taking care of these.

    Do not worry about the TV show. Assume that it will be a separate line.

    Give it some thought, and post your lists. I'll be back shortly with mine.

    I don't know if Hasbro wants me running things, because I'd happily run the entire company into the ground just to get the last few figures and vehicles that I want for my collection.

    Seriously, I'll think it through and see what I come up with.
    "To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence… When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up." - C.S. Lewis

    10 points eh?

    AT-TE(2 points)
    Sgt Dolan(1 point)
    Yarna(1 point)
    Black bespin guard (kit-bashed from White guard body, black Endor Trooper head and hands.5 points)
    Ultimate Jedi Luke(SA - retooled from existing mold, more articulation and no gimmicks .5 points)

    Jabba the Hutt with Dais(use existing Jabba mold from Saga Deluxe, and Dais mold from Vintage Days. 1 point or 2 here since is kit-bashed kind of?)

    2 pack Ewoks(use existing molds to create Warok and Rumba, repaint and retool 1 point - limited articulation)

    SA Qui-Gon (1 point)

    Pick a new pod-racer(1 point)

    Added total equals 10 assuming the Jabba is 2 points, if you count as one, then add to the list

    CW Obi-Wan in armor(re-issue from battle pack with speeder 1 point)

    Dude, don't you read no directions, KH?

    1: Ten points per year, not total. Unless you're planning to kill the line right out of the gate, you've got ten more years left.

    2: I forgot to mention, but will add it to the original rules: Deluxe are two points, regardless of whether they're new or repaints.

    3: Vehicles are totally separate from the point system, but you only get one per year. (Just assume Hasbro will release about three or four TIE Fighters and repainted Starfighters per year to round everything out.)

    Chux you have WAY to much time on your hands. But I like it. Hey, I get the AT-TE in 2008, so it's all good!
    Move along, move along

    I've been "toying" with the idea for this thread for a while, actually.
    Tommy, close your eyes.
