    Plo Koon
    Saesee Tiin
    Please, no more Plo Koons or Saesee Tiins for at least 5 years! They've been the plague of the Saga Legends line. Plus, we just got a new Plo Koon in the Legacy line, who pegwarms right alongside his Saga Legends (blue AND red carded) and Clone Wars counterparts.

    These guys are still readily available online, in vintage packaging, and you can probably find them for less that their initial $10 price tag.

    Here's VTAC Bossk for only $7.89 from Amazon:

    So no need to be taking up slots that would be better suited for other figures in the next 2 years.

    Patience is the key. I've been carrying the torch for Skiff Guards since 2002. The only other groups of characters that I regularly campaign for would be Ewoks and, more recently, Ep3 Wookiees. So it definitely helps to think in the long term and get out of the "I need it now!" mentality. If I really want a character now, then I should still want it 8 years from now. If my interest fades after a couple of years, then I never really wanted it in the first place.

    For instance, Kithaba has been at the top of my want list since I discovered that he wasn't Barada in 2000. My interest in the character has never faded, not even when he was pulled off the rumor list for 2009 or more recently when he was bumped off the rumor list for 2011, because Hasbro has decided to make another Nikto Skiff Guard instead. Of course it's disappointing when a figure you want gets so close to being made only to have the plug pulled, but it doesn't change my interest in the character.

    I dunno, BigB. If they were actually to release "Sassy" Tiin in a tutu and with a chihuahua in his purse, or pimped-out Plo Koon with feather hat, fur coat, platform shoes, and a light-cane, I could see working them into the TVC line.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Well I never said they (Plo and Saesee) need to be in the line next year, but both could stand some updating to get them SA and then be done with them. They would look nice on vintage cards, and if produced in smaller batches they would sell through. There are collectors (like me) who are actually fans of these characters and would like to see them done right once and for all.

    As for the bounty hunters, they would be perfect for the so-called greatest hits slots in the line. It doesn't matter to me that they are still available online. All star wars figures are really. If they are going to re-release 4-LOM (an iffy seller in my area) then the terrific sellers (Bossk, IG-88, Zuckuss) are no-brainers in my opinion. Plus most kids don't shop e-bay or online in general.

    Believe me I've been collecting since 1996 so I know what patience is! I had to wait forever for Tessek, Amanaman and Dice Ibegon. Now its Cane Adiss and the Mon Cal female dancer.
    Most wanted "bottom-of-the-barrel scrapes": ANH: Kal'Falnl C'ndros, Revwien (concept art), Tzizvvt ESB: Wiorkettle, Treva Horme ROTJ: Cane Adiss, Loje Nella TPM: Edcel Bar Gane AOTC: Rogwa Wodrata ROTS: Mon Calamari Dancer, Veedaaz Awmetth, Eeusu Estornii EU: Guri (red outfit), Ket Maliss

    I will think of more later but here are some I would buy...

    Emperor's Royal Guard (new sculpt or ep3 sculpt) with pike
    Janus Greejatus (new sculpt) with stand
    Kren Blista Vanee (new sculpt) with stand
    Sim Aloo (new) with stand
    Wicket and all original vintage ewok characters
    One way to out think people is to make them think you think they'll think what you are not really trying to get them to think what you think.

    So they're gonna start doing figures on the vintage cards OTHER than the original ones from the 70's/80's? Whatever. I won't mind it so long as they don't do a single Prequel figure on a vintage style cardback.
    Up, up, and OKAAAAY!!!

    Actually, they've already said that Prequel figures are going to be on vintage style cardbacks as well. Wave 2 of the Vintage Collection is going to be an ROTS wave, with General Grievous pretty much confirmed to be in that wave.

    Lando in his Jabba's Palace disguise
    Nien Nunb as the Falcon's co-pilot
    Imperial Guard
    That smug Imperial jerk who presented Luke to Vader at the landing platform and was all pleased with himself that he'd "captured" a Jedi who wanted to be caught in the first place
    Admiral Ackbar
    Mon Mothma
    General Madine
    Mon Calamari crewman
    Arvel Crynyd
