    In an ideal world, this would be awesome, but I haven't seen any technology that suggests this is feasible. The removable pieces on the 2010 TVC C-3PO are pretty cool, but his face looks a little mask-like, and I don't think it would work for the entire body. Maybe in 10 years or so?

    The body is similar, but the colors are different in each film and so is the cut of the tunic and the style of the boots, so I wouldn't want them to just lump in three heads.

    Same thing for AOTC/ROTS Anakin - the colors are different (most obviously the undershirt), and then there's his gloved arm. Anakin also bulked up quite a bit (except for the reshoots when Hayden lost some of the muscle ), so I don't think a reuse would be any good there.

    Padmé's battle gear was the same as every other handmaiden except Sabé, who was in the decoy queen getup at the time.

    I'll post my list in a little bit.

    The POTJ Sebulba had removable helmet/goggles, so I don't think he'd need alternative head sculpts.

    Anyway, here are my choices:

    Qui-Gon
    Obi Wan (one body with a different head sculpt for each film would probably be fine for me)
    Darth Maul
    Anakin (Tatooine)
    Padme (Theed Battle Dress)
    Jar Jar
    Sebulba
    Watto
    Boss Nass
    Nute Gunray
    Rune Haako
    Battle Droid
    Big thanks to DarkJedi5, TheRealDubya, obi-dad, morpheus282, Tycho and Kidhuman for great deals/trades.

    *Qui-Gon Jinn
    *Obi-Wan Kenobi
    *Anakin Skywalker (Tatooine)
    *Queen Amidala (Battle)
    *Queen Amidala (Theed Invasion - Red Dress)
    *Jar Jar Binks
    *Darth Maul
    *Battle Droid
    *C-3PO
    *Destroyer Droid
    *Watto
    *Sebulba

    I think several of the Jedi Council members are must-haves, but I can wait until AOTC or ROTS for most of them, as they don't really do anything in TPM except sit and stand.

    The existing versions of Watto and Sebulba in this line are pretty good, but I'd love to see all-new versions.

    JabbaJohn, I think the intent of the poll is to start over. We don't even know for certain the size of the figures, but we only get 12 from each movie.

    So even if "existing figures" are good, if the character's essential, we have to have 'em.

    We haven't done AOTC and ROTS yet, but because there are enough costume changes, we can't have multiple head sculpts packed in with Obi and Ani according to MSP.

    Meanwhile, I'm saving my vote for a Destroyer Droid for the AOTC allotment. All 3 major types of TF combat droids are necessary for the PT collection, but you can space them out. I find the AOTC list has the most room for them.
    BAD Pts Need: R5-C7 lf leg (x2), , R4-P44 right leg BAD Pts Offered For Trade: PM me - I have lots of parts now including BG-J38!. New Kyle Katarn is also available.

    Actually, we will get at least 12 from each movie. After the six movie rounds, we will have an OT round, a PT round, and then 4 rounds that are open to all 6 movies.

    I would probably concur with JabbaJohn that Obi-Wan and Anakin need to have different versions for each of the prequels, but I guess if enough people felt that one Obi-Wan with multiple heads would suffice, then that is the way the poll would go. I'm trying to avoid telling people how they should vote, especially since it is kind of hard to come up with good, consistent rules that would apply to all of the characters, and not knowing what would be reasonable or even feasible in a theoretical "ultimate version" of a figure. The only instructions I would give would be for people to try to approach it from the perspective of the thread title - "Essential Characters." I'll explain more of my thought process later, as it is time for me to get some sleep.

    Yeah, I know. I guess my language wasn't clear enough - I was just musing on the fact that, in the current, Hasbro-produced 3 3/4" scale line, I would like to see updated versions of Sebulba and Watto.

    On the Ani/Obi body issue, I'm treating this like this hypothetical line would have the ultimate, perfect versions of these figures, and saying "Eh, I kind of remember those guys' outfits being the same movie-to-movie" doesn't line up with that vision for the line, which is why I don't support it. It would be like reusing X-wing pilot gear for Snowspeeder pilots, or using one Vader for his many different appearances, or not giving Han different-colored pants for his different appearances - most people might not notice or care, but I think those differences are all worth recognizing.

    I doubt they could pull this off well, but I'm not even sure prequel 3PO is important enough to those stories to make this list. Still, it's an interesting idea, but I think like Luke there's no way to do it in "ultimate" quality with 1 figure.

    Finally, Padmé has many different appearances in TPM, which will make it difficult to choose which version(s) are most essential. If she was like a mini Barbie doll that came with multiple outfits, one figure could work. However, if we can do that with one character, we could do it with just about any character.
    She has 11 outfits in the film, multiple makeup looks, every single one is different hair as well. I don't really know how they could deliver anything that could handle all that in 1 package, and no way cloth will work with how complex the costumes are. You could maybe think snap-on outfits a la Polly Pocket but they'd barely be able to move, doesn't sound so ultimate. So yeah, every figure should be separate.

    So, my suggestions would be:

    Don't vote for R2-D2 in any subsequent polls.
    Consider each Padmé outfit to be a different figure.
    Vote for C-3PO only if you think the ANH version could not be made to work for a TPM or AOTC figure.

    It could be that with the limited space in this poll, many of you would not find those versions essential enough to put on your lists anyway. So, I am inclined to just let people vote and see how things play out. What do you all think?
    Sounds right on the money.

    Edit - I see now what you said about the ESB version being more essential, and your explanation.
    Interesting. My list was exclusive to ANH, I wrote it thinking only about that film. I don't know how my lists work interacting with that later, I guess we'll find out.
