    My interest has waned due to the terrible year last year. I've moved more into the movie prop area. But I'm not completely out of the game. I plan on participating, but I want to take the time to think about what I really want anymore.

    The "original" scene by scene thread was one of the best times I ever had on this site. I was proud of that list and still want to see those figures that are left from that and the ROTS poll. But, my list now is short and almost all are cantina and Jabba's palace, so I can't follow a scene by scene poll anymore. Also, I don't think Hasbro will make any of the figures that we select or listen to us or be interested in our lists like they used to appear to be. The formal Hasbro polls have been incredibly disappointing to me for years. But I look forward to maybe someday crossing more figures off the old lists!

    I hear you. And the fans voted for Mara Skywalker, Jedi Knight.

    Hasbro, repeatedly questioned about why they created the 3rd edition of Mara Jade (Emperor's Hand) in the same outfit finally said "because that's how she's recognized, so that's what we did."

    So why did they have the vote in the first place.

    I would have loved to see Mara Skywalker in green and brown Jedi robes with Luke's (Anakin's) original blue lightsaber (the one lost at Cloud City).

    I thought the "we know you voted for this Mara Jade, but we thought it would be best to make the more well known outfit" to be one of the worst things Hasbro has done in years. I don't want any Mara Jade figures, but that slap in the face to fans and voters, that last straw of "we know what's best/we know what the kids want" made me lose interest in all other Hasbro fan choice polls.

    I'll get started with TPM, grouped not necessarily scene by scene but location by location, or something. I think most of these figures would either be good sellers or easy repaints/retools. I didn't throw absolutely everything on there, and there are some selections that probably wouldn't do well at all, but here we go!

    Sebilba: your EU choice figure of Muuurgh would be awesome! I loved the Young Han Solo trilogy books!

    JabbaJohn: You have some seriously GREAT picks!

    - The Radiant VII crew
    - Senator Palpatine Hologram
    - Ed Cel Bargane (Sebilba picked him too)
    - Mot Rot Rob
    - the "Airspeeder" (by that I assume Coruscant Taxi Driver) pilot - and you knew his name!
    - the N1 pilots: black, female, bearded white
    - the Gungan Drummer

    - with regards to the Naboo - I think I stated that I'd like a black Naboo Royal Security and other ethnic variations on the Naboo Army personnel.

    Good suggestions guys! Keep them coming.

    Yeah Droid - the original scene by scene thread was a lot of fun and got a lot of participation here. It is "dark times" again for Star Wars right now with:

    No Clone Wars TV show
    No theatrical movies

    - thus no inspiration for more product to feed our (admit it!) collecting addiction.

    They didn't even complete a line of Clone Wars Animated figures they could have done with characters like Riff Tamsen and the Trandoshan Hunters which would have looked awesome. Not to mention the Night Sister Warriors, Night Sister Zombies, and Ventress as a Nightsister Shadow Warrior.

    I still realize that to sell the line the case assortments will have to contain about the 50 or so "regulars" for SW that the 6" line will encompass - you all know the usual suspects. I don't love those characters any less because I want Nyrat Agira. But I already have Anakin and Obi-Wan's AOTC figures and love the ones I have (I think the 2009 BAD ones were the best AOTC versions - if they didn't just repack that 2009 figure on Obi-Wan's VPTC card - and I don't think AOTC Anakin got one as they made his Peasant Disguise figure an update for AOTC Vintage). But besides Zam and Jango, who are my figures going to be displayed interacting with? Well Coruscant is a HUMAN planet (originally) so interesting HUMAN extras would be cool and Nyrat Agira (in her thong of course ) qualifies. I loved getting Elan Sleezebagano and Ahmed Best and Anthony Daniels in their Republic officer clothing, not to mention a few of the other aliens - though I would've liked more. But The Outlander's bartender was human (black male I think) and there was that one tough guy with long hair that was following Anakin when they played that "creeping danger music" right before Zam failed her move against Obi-Wan.

    Alright, scene compeltism is a sustaining (though not all encompassing) part of the hobby. They made Yarna dal Gargan.

    Is there hope on the horizon there is more to be excited about in this hobby (before Episode 7) - as to how at least the possible characters never-made-before from the 6 movies are likely to be produced?

    I think that the past couple of years I have just been focused on other things and haven't spent a lot of time browsing the forums here outside of threads I have already been subscribed to. Combine that with figures being few and far between during that time, and not a lot new figures left to be made. I think things could be fun again once the new movies come out, but I am short on room to put my figures now, and may have to be a bit more selective in what I choose to buy. I think I if I did some reorganizing (of my entire house, not just my Star Wars figures), and maybe got rid of some of bigger items I don't need such as all of the different Jedi Starfighters (the micro-machine versions are good enough for me for most of them), then I might have a lot more room to put new stuff.

    So, if I get a chance, perhaps I will think about what figures I would be most interested in and post my list.

    I'm still in for obscure OT characters. Even though I'm not actually displaying my SW collection anymore I still feel a certain completism about the OT. Been buying these things since 95/6, would seem a shame to stop now.

    But they're not making very much these days so.....not much to talk about/be excited about. Thusly my desire to make lists is greatly diminished. For that matter I've forgotten so many names I used to know.

    Where "text" & "friend" are (n) & "fail" is (v)
    Maybe they should release a Completists' Collection; a wave of just all new never-before-made characters, as obscure as they want. Those who'll order the case will sell them out, can control how many they order, and those who don't think their customers will want them at all won't order them. Easy? All too easy?
    I predict that the upcoming Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi film will include the word "and." Multiple times.
