I started this thread a few years ago, and I think it's about time for updating. You can merge them if you like, but I wanted to give this newer one more exposure, if you will, by putting it in the newer section.
In the past three years, we've seen more and more resculpts and repaints than ever before, with several of the figures on the original list being completed. But which ones do you still want to see?
My list, at least:
*Tatooine - they all still suck. They should just start over. The head is always terrible, as it either looks nothing like him or is too big or something. His tunic is an odd duck since it would be nearly impossible to recreate the fabric under his arms (they're not like regular sleeves) without using soft goods, and we all saw how well that turned out. I like the articulation of the TAC Luke but his elbows look ugly and stick out like sore . . . elbows. At any rate, we need a correct-height (about like the Early Bird one), super-articulated version with a good face.
*Stormtrooper Disguise - Hasbro could easily take the Comic Pack version and redo it in normal colors (essentially taking the head and putting it on the TAC Stormtrooper) but it looks too tall. If they wanted to base it off of the current body they could just shave a little bit off of the lower torso part and do something with the legs and arms; the armor is still going to be the same size but just fit poorly.
*Yavin Ceremony - I like the look of the current one, but his stupid face is too pale. I wouldn't mind a repaint, and they could put in a pack with the others from this scene or even as a Holiday Special thing.
*Snowspeeder Pilot - start all over. I also wouldn't mind a better X-wing one as I'm not too fond of the VOTC version.
*Bespin - the VTAC one could stand a new head, but it's not necessary.
*Dagobah - I think the current ones are fine, but I wouldn't mind a kitbash with the legs of the Bespin VTAC figure and the torso, arms, and head of the new Comic Pack version for more articulation.
*Medical Frigate - not very exciting but still somewhat important. He'd be cool to see with open and closed arms.
*Death Star II - the new one's joints are too big and he needs a black glove.
*ANH vest - the VOTC one is nearly perfect, though I would like to eventually see it retooled with a holster more like the one seen on Garindan.
*Yavin Ceremony - if the upcoming Lando's vest can be repositioned over his collar, then use that torso; if not, just sculpt a new torso for the VOTC Han and give him new lower arms so his sleeves go down farther.
*Hoth - use the VTAC one's body and give him a hood.
*Bespin - the torture rack one looks pretty killer, but they could re-release him with a more neutral head.
*Carbonite - the TSC one was good for Jabba's skiff but not much else. Both blocks have been less than stellar, though the first one was a little bit better. He could also use more articulation.
*ROTJ vest - they realized on the VTSC figure that Harrison had gained a few pounds and made his torso fatter, but they didn't do that for the rest of the body. Use the same torso, give him new arms and maybe legs, and a new head that looks more like he did in ROTJ.
Princess Leia Organa
*ANH - the buns have still never been done properly, nor has her face (the Early Bird sculpt was pretty good but inhibited by the hood). Just start all over and giver her more articulation.
*Yavin Ceremony - she looks way too tall compared to the newer Luke and Han, so fix that.
*Hoth - this one could use a new sculpt in the more accurate scale.
*Medical Frigate - the last completely new Leia outfit not yet done . . .
*Jabba's slave - as I said before, they should have one that can lay down.
*General - the POTJ one's too tall, the VTAC one's too short and has a weird neck. I don't think we need another one but I wouldn't say no.
*Ewok gown - the other ones are too tall.
