Vintage Collecton: What Figures Would You Choose?
« on: May 24, 2017, 08:25:58 AM »

With the Vintage Collection returning, I thought I'd throw out the question of if you could choose six characters for the line - three new (includes kit bashes, different paint, and minimal new tooling) and three repacks (straight repacks only), who would they be?

And remember, this is just for fun.

The list doesn't have to be "definitive".  The six we pick today doesn't have to be the six we'd pick tomorrow.  This is a fan site after all.  Not Hasbro HQ.   Nothing is set in plastic here.

On to my picks...


For new, I'd like to see:

1. Bib Fortuna - The last one was okay, but I would like a "non-hissing" face, please.
2. Episode II Anakin (regular Jedi outfit) - Even if it was just a kit bash of the TVC EpII head with the TVC EpIII body, I'd be fine with that.  A new better head sculpt would be even better.  I'm just not a fan of the Evolutions head.  To me, it doesn't look like Hayden Christiansen.
3. Sim Aloo - Last of the vintage to be made in the modern line.


For repacks:

1. Count Dooku (SA Legacy Collection) - One of the few remaining major prequel characters without a TVC card back.
2. Malakili the Rancor Keeper (Legacy Collection)- Missed this one, plus it'd be a nice "modern" TVC card back upgrade.
3. Jawas (Black Series) - Would be a nice addition for card back collecting, plus I wouldn't be against adding more jawas.


Later, when I'm making a list in my head again, I'll probably switch out Anakin for Dash Rendar and Dooku for an OT character.  Or not.  :P 

Well, that's my list. 

What's yours?

I posted something along this line a few months (years?) ago. I would love to see new figures of:
1. the rest of the rogue 1 crew
2. A non-cartoon inquisitor
3. Fully articulated Rebels

I would love to see some repacks done as sets with a new character:
The Old Republic - Revan, Malak, Bastilla, Commando, Malgus, HK-47. You could Kitbash a Revan and a female mando in white and blue to create an Exile. Make a new figure out of T3-M4.

Legacy - Jacen and Jaina Solo, Kyle Katarn, Mara Jade (now with a decent headsculpt), Yuuzhan Vong. Use an Padawan Anakin body with a new head for the much requested Ben and rework the comic pack Baltar Swan to become a Jan Ors.

1. Tonnika Sister(s)
2. Any Cantina alien we don't have
3. Any Jabba sail barge alien we don't have
4. Yakface
5. Sim Aloo
6. Properly painted Death Squad Commander
I am also in for any comic packs. I like the EU spin on things and I love new characters.
Some more Clone Wars and Rebels figures would be nice.

Yes - I am hopeful we will see the fully articulated Rebels crew when the Vintage Collection returns.

Any figure that fits on a vintage card from the original line that hasn't been remade in the modern era. There are still a bunch of them.
