Just a general questions to throw out for everyone. What figures would we have gotten in the CommTech POTF line that eventually came out in POTJ?
Remember how the line started with figures from ANH (Luke, Han, Greedo, Jawa, R2, DV, ST, Leia, Motti)? They were all from the first part in ANH, i.e., Tantive IV (Leia, ST), Luke's homestead (Luke, R2, Jawa), the Cantina (Han, Greedo), and the DS before Luke et. al. shows up (DV, Motti). Then we were supposed to get Chewie Dejarik, which was put on the back of the CT POTF cards.
Were the other figures released for POTJ supposed to follow this arc if POTF had continues? We soon after got from ANH OB1, which looks like he's posed for the MF scene and Jek Porkins. Later there was X-Wing Luke, Sandtrooper, and DS Han (I'm not counting R4-M9, Zutton, and BoShek since they came out well after all the other ANH ones).
For ESB there was Mechanic Chewie, Lando, Bespin Leia, Bespin Escape Han, Bespin Sec. Guard, 300th Boba, Dagobah Vader and FX-7.
For ROTJ we had Biker Scout, EW Vader, Teebo, and probably more which I can't remember now.
Did Hasbro plan all or most of these figures to be included in the CT POTF line? From what it looked like, they were planning on producing figures in pretty much a sequential order through the OT that had either been produced only once or that had never been released before.
I really wish they had kept up with this supposed plan. I thought the CT chips, although slightly lacking in voice quality, a great idea. I'll rue their absence for a long time.
