    New Star Wars Scene By Scene Figure Wish List Poll

    Let's not overcomplicate this with a lot of rules. but this is 3 3/4" figures only.

    Basics: you can post whatever you want, BUT you have one VOTING POST and you'll just put (hopefully in bold) that it's your voting post at the top of your list.

    If you want to, amend your voting post before we tally - and say we tally this at the end of the year. But post that you're amending in bold. And just list them - you don't have to rank them.

    Participate in whatever categories you want, but let's identify where in the chronology you're voting for figures from, since it would make it easier to tally:

    1) Pre-TPM Expanded Universe (DotJ, TotJ, KOTOR, etc.)

    2) TPM - I'll be specific with my own scene by scene votes to get it started.

    3) realistic PT Expanded Universe (this includes realistic Clone Wars)

    4) animated PT Expanded Universe - this is wasting votes that won't be wasted, to say you still want animated style figures

    5) AOTC I'll be specific with my own scene by scene votes to get it started.

    6) ROTS I'll be specific with my own scene by scene votes to get it started.

    7) in between trilogies Expanded Universe

    8) ANH I'll be specific with my own scene by scene votes to get it started.

    9) OT Expanded Universe (this includes RS, SOTE, etc.)

    10 ESB I'll be specific with my own scene by scene votes to get it started.

    11) ROTJ I'll be specific with my own scene by scene votes to get it started

    12) Post-ROTJ Expanded Universe (this includes NR, NJO, Legacy


    I guess we'll pull a top 50 out of all this in hoping we get even 50 figures we want in The black series

    Just by the lack of enthusiasm, I don't think anyone cares about (new) Star Wars figures any more.

    The choices are no longer as exciting any more as in the days when Classic fans were clamoring for Captain Piett or Slave Leia and Wedge.

    Ultimately, I think that's because people might not care for the prequels or have given up an enjoyment from diversity in the brand's offerings and it's just come down to making the occasional purchase of a 6" figure because they hope it's the "ultimate edition" of some over-produced character like X-wing / Snowspeeder Luke.

    I think the new movies might inspire an enjoyment of the broader reach of the brand (PT / EU, etc) but it may be some time in coming. If it works.

    Honestly, I have a really hard time coming up with a substantial list of never-before-made characters that I would actually want to buy in the 3.75" line. Sure, I could rattle off a list of 20 or more Skiff Guards and Jabba's thugs, but that's hardly a "scene by scene" list from across the entire saga. Even then, I wouldn't necessarily be excited about buying action figures of all those characters.

    As for never-before-made Skiff Guards, there are really only three that I could get excited about:
    Yotts Oren
    Vedain
    Velken Tezeri

    The rest would be cool if Hasbro made, but also not a big deal if they never get made. It would also be pointless for Hasbro to make those figures unless they were also committed to making a larger version of the Skiff for all of them to fit on.

    With Jabba's Palace and the Sail Barge, I would like to see (but I wouldn't necessarily say that I'm excited about):
    Cane Adiss
    Fozec
    Nizuc Bek
    Ishi Tib

    But that's it. I'd probably buy any other Jabba's thug that Hasbro decides to make, but it's not a huge deal if they never get made.

    I've always had a short list of characters from the Star Wars films that I wanted to see made and, when Kithaba was produced last year, that list was completed. So now most of my 3.75" want list is made up of characters that have already been made into figures, but I would like to see updates of.

    People can list updates in the movie categories (or even the EU categories should they wish).

    With regards to your Jabba's scene comments, BigB, like yourself and many I'd bet, I still wish they did a Big vehicle for ROTJ and made it Jabba's Sailbarge.

    Darryl said "not happening" at Comic Con. I have a great relationship with him and know that he realizes "fan pestering" can also be translated into "enthusiasm." So I hope he and Hasbro will change their mind about a Sailbarge.

    I also know that he is not against it out of personal taste reasons. Darryl would love a sailbarge himself, but doesn't think it's "toyetic" enough to sell.

    I know this is a FIGURE wish list thread, but the darn Sailbarge would make both...

    Never made before Jabba scene figures

    AND

    Jabba scene figure updates

    possible if the release was well coordinated. We might always see a Sailbarge in Ep 7-9 or the between-the-movies films (like a film starring Boba Fett and young Han Solo) with a key sailbarge action scene.

    Or it could happen in the cartoon Rebels series.

    Thus we'd have a 2-plus hour "commercial" for the thing. (With plastic missile cannon firing features out the windows like a Pirates of the [Dune Sea] Caribbean ship that are removeable for collectors' authentic representation but "can shoot down a 9 year old's Y-wing in a kid's-imagined play adventure."

    You will note how "Iconic" Princess Leia has turned into the Slave Leia and not the Imperial Senator (hair in buns) version from ANH in the modern collecting years.


    But also with regards to how people collecting nowadays are looking for updates:

    WHY?

    1) to keep them carded? (and what will you do with older carded versions?)

    2) to put in dioramas? (and do you enjoy updating them with new - improved figures or just wish Hasbro made definitive versions?)*


    *While many here have become familiar with my figures-wanted interests over the 17 years I've been on this site now (wow! 17 years almost to the month!) I do want an Ultimate Han Solo Carbonite update that's a definitive version that's never been done before.


    BTW, new skiffs would be fine. I'm not really in the market for them, but I think they'd do well with newer collectors and those interested in updates of course. However, a sailbarge with the kid-play features I mentioned, perhaps adding trap doors to drop figures to a sarlaac [from the sailbarge - though not in the movie - just a hidden kid's play feature] would be a lot more fun [with firing missiles from "pirate ship cannons that stick out the windows and can be removed for authentic display'].

    ROTJ needs a Big Vehicle and I don't think it will be of a huge benefit to release the Imperial Shuttle once again - or spend money making THAT larger. They did another Interceptor release and I am not really going to get excited about a B-wing enlargement. AT-ST has been enlarged, too - and the AT-AT has seen an Endor version.

    The darn Sailbarge screams ROTJ!

    OK. I'm done with my rant though it would make me feel even better if I could go on for another 5 pages about the Sailbarge. Haha.

    I think it all boils down to why each individual collector collects Star Wars toys in the first place. You obviously like to recreate scenes from the movies as thoroughly as possible. Other collectors just want the best versions of each main character. For me, personally, I'm a character-centric collector. So I have a list of characters from Star Wars that I care about (none of them are main characters) and I like to have toys of those characters that are of the highest possible quality.

    So I will always be up for buying a new version of the Sandtrooper, Bossk or Barada, as long as the new figure is a noticeable improvement over the old figure.

    I've been wanting to contribute to this thread, as I enjoy a good poll, but not been getting round to it, and the general lack of enthusiasm hasn't inspired me to get my finger out. However, I've found an old wants list, so thought I might as well add it here.

    Tbh, my interest in this line has been waning, but that's mainly because of the lacklustre choices - very few all-new characters, and constant upgrades of the same characters, that didn't really need upgrading. And too many clones. I would be excited to see brand new characters, particularly aliens (most of my wants are unmade background aliens), and there are a few upgrades I would really like to see, like a definitive OT Yoda (the 1980s vintage figure is still the best!), or Labria (it doesn't seem right to me that we have an awesome devaronian figure in the shape of Vilmarh Grahrk, but only an outdated POTF2 figure representing the classic cantina character).

    There are a couple of upcoming figures I am really looking forward to, notably Merumeru (who's on my list) and Vizam (at the time I made the list, I didn't deem him necessary, but with all the other fantastic skiff guards that have been made over the last couple of years, he does now justify an upgrade). I've also read that a new Dagobah Yoda is in the works, but I'll reserve judgement till I see the finished product.

    Anyway, here's my list. There are really only a handful of figures here I truly care about..... the "lost" Utai, Onaconda Farr, Wald, Sasha Tiel, Sim Aloo, and a decent Yoda - the others are mostly minor alien characters who I think would make for some cool-looking figures.

    TPM:

    ROTS:

    Merumeru (Wookiee)
    Tikkes / Tundra Dowmeia (Quarren Senators)
