With a rumoured 25 pcs emerging over the coming months/ years from the Premium Format line, which characters should be immortalised in mixed media, assuming 25 is all that's forthcoming. Choose wisely.

My ideas:

ANH

Darth Vader
Luke Skywalker
Han Solo (x2)
Obi-Wan Kenobi
Princess Leia (Tantive IV)
C-3PO
R2-D2
Stormtrooper
Tusken Raider
Jawa

ESB

Lando Calrissian (Bespin Administrator)
Boba Fett
Yoda
Hoth Snowtrooper
Admiral Ozzel or Piett
Luke Skywalker (Bespin)

ROTJ

Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight)
Bib Fortuna
Gamorrean Guard
Emperor's Royal Guard
Emperor Palpatine
Lando General
Mon Mothma
Darth Vader

TPM

Darth Maul
Battle Droid
Anakin Skywalker
C-3PO
Qui-Gon Jinn

AOTC

Jango Fett
Count Dooku
Nute Gunray
Clone Trooper (perhaps coloured variation as an exclusive)
Geonosian/ Poggle the Lesser
Beru & Owen Lars

ROTS

General Greivous
Anakin Skywalker (Vader)
Darth Sidious
Mace Windu
Yoda
Clone Trooper
Obi-Wan Kenobi
MagnaGuard
Tion Medon...well, he's a fantastic character.

That is much more than 25, but it is hard to really cut back to the most important characters. There are so many. I could easily compile a list of at 50 principal 'on-screen' characters.

Here is my guess for the 25 they will release...I hope they release more though.

ANH

1.Darth Vader (released)
2.Luke Skywalker (released)
3.Han Solo (released)
4.Obi-Wan Kenobi (confirmed)
5.Princess Leia (confirmed)
6.C-3PO
7.R2-D2
8.Stormtrooper
9.Chewbacca

ESB

10.Boba Fett
11.Yoda
12.Hoth Snowtrooper
13. Lando

ROTJ

14.Emperor's Royal Guard
15.Emperor Palpatine

TPM
16.Darth Maul
17.Battle Droid
18.Qui-Gon Jinn
19.Young Kenobi
20.Destroyer Droid

AOTC:
21.Jango Fett
22.Dooku

ROTS:
23.Anakin
24.CloneTrooper (many variants/exclusives for sure)
25.GGr (released)


I hope these are also released:
Biker Scout
Ackbar
Jawa
Tusken Raider
Bounty Hunters (IG-88, 4LOM, Zuckuss, Dengar)
2-1B
Nien Numb
Jabba (huge, I know..)
Lobot
TIE fighter pilot
AT-AT driver

Hell, there are just too many cool characters from the OT to list!!!

ANH:
1. Luke
2. Han
3. Darth Vader
4. Leia
5. Obi-Wan
6. C-3PO
7. R2D2
8. Stormtrooper
9. Greedo (Not that important, but one of my favorites)

ESB:
10. Yoda
11. Boba Fett

ROTJ:
12. Emperor
13. Emperor's Royal Guard (love these guys)
14. Admiral Ackbar (He would be amazing in this format)

Hopefully GG will release Jabba diorama similar to the full Attakus setup in their smaller scale.

I want them to make a Rancor diorama in the smaller scale, too.

TPM:
15. Darth Maul
16. Battle Droid

ATOC:
17. Clone Trooper
18. Dooku
19. Jango Fett

ROTS:
20. Anakin (Darth Vader Sith version)
21. Obi-Wan
22. Grievous
23. Commander Cody (with TONS of variations for the exclusives)
24. Mace Windu
25. Padme

The scary thing is, there are 50-75 characters that SS could make an amazing piece out of. The choices on what pieces to make must be EXTREMELY difficult for them.

Did the figure of 25 come from a reliable source? I sure hope they're wrong. It would be nice to release a lot more.

I'd like to buy many of those but we shall see on how much money I have left after LOTR :)

It would be great to See all the one's you have mentioned. But I would love to see a Jabba diorama style simaler to the full Attakus setup.:p 8)

25 only huh? I'd buy these:

1. Luke *
2. Han *
3. Vader *
4. Obi-wan (ANH) *
5. Leia (ANH) *

6. Stormtrooper
7. C3PO
8. R2D2
9. Yoda
10. Boba Fett
11. Jedi Luke
12. Slave Leia
13. Lando

14. Obi-wan (AOC or ROTS)
15. Anakin (ROTS)
16. Padme (AOC)
17. Jango
18. Maul
19. Sidious
20. Grievous *
21. Dooku
22. Clone Trooper
23. Mace
24.
25.

I'd buy Chewbacca and an Ewok too - but they might not be made due to technical difficulties.

Of ones that I'd buy I can get to 25 with only a couple of repeats, which doesn't bode well considering that interview with Tom that had all the different versions of Luke.

One constant throughout the prequels has been the battle droid. Surely this inept foot soldier of the Separatist movement has to be on SS's schedule at some point?

Gruson
05-26-2005, 05:56 PM
I REALLY hope they do make the battle droid. I would love a "yellow" exclusive version as well. :)

I'd love to see Padme dressed (or undressed ) with genuine Lucasfilm fabrics...maybe a Trisha Biggar signature edition...

I have to admit that I really liked the Hasbro Amidala Collection that was released back in 1999...

You're gonna need a lot of space for 25 1/4 scale statues.
30W, 18H, 12D is what I use for my Attakus line and that
normally holds 4 statues, except Emperor who is 15D.

Ahhh, this guy:

Qui-Gon: We're ambassadors for the Supreme Chancellor. I'm taking these people to Coruscant.
OOM-9: Where are you taking them?
Qui-Gon: to Coruscant.
OOM-9: Coruscant. That doesn't compute with...you're under arrest!!!

:p :rock

There are only a few figures I'd be really interrested in. I couldnt even name 25 figures I'd really buy.

I've got my hopes up for a couple though...

Obi Wan Kenobi (ANH)
Droideka (TPM)
Yoda (ESB)
Anakin Skywalker (ROTS)
Padmé (AOTC) preferably in the white outfit during the colloseum scene
Storm/Snowtrooper (ANH/ESB) both are great!

I might be interrested in a few other pieces but the list above are the ones I'd certainly want.

Gazmog

Of the droids, the MagnaGuard is the one I desire most of all.

Battle Droid or Droideka would be amazing. Exclusive Yellow Battle Droid Captain!!!:rock

It's hard to do the droids if your doing MM isn't it. I mean where will the mixed part be. I personally don't mind in the least if Chewie is all polystone with a leather bandoleer. or the droids are all poly and metal like GG. I would just be happy to have statues of this size, detail and quality in my collection. So SS don't get tied up in having to make every piece a MM piece. I would definitely however want the bad guys more. Clone troopers, storm troopers imperial guards, tie fighters, destroyers, and definitely HAVE to have R2 and 3PO. I would also really like an emperor sitting on his throne or even better standing up leaning over about to strike Luke while he is on the ground with the blue energy already streaking through his hands. Man that would be wicked!!!

I hope SS will leave the droids to Gentle Giant, and concentrate on characters that actually wear some sort of fabric design...

dstephan
05-27-2005, 06:53 PM
I need 3PO and R2 in scale with the other premiums. The troopers would also use minimal "mixed media" but they'd have to do a stormtrooper.

jesseawilson
05-27-2005, 07:45 PM
Exactly, I want something of very high quality especially if I am only going to collect one line it has to have everything.

You hit the nail on the head with this one Jesse. I don't care about the mixed media at all with Chewie and the droids. I just want them in 1/4 scale to match the other pieces.

This is also why I'm staying away from the GG 1/6 stuff. I'm only buying the GG dioramas, which are out of scale with the GG 1/6 statues anyway.

jesseawilson
05-27-2005, 07:59 PM
Exactly, the only thing Gentle Giant I have is the Dewback and the Speeder bike on order. The kind of things that SS wont do. Could you imagine how impressive a 1/4 scale 3PO and R2 will be with SS's attention to detail. I have a feeling we will be blown away.

I'll chime in again saying that a sculpted Chewie is unacceptable. It just wouldn't fit in the the rest of the line.

jesseawilson
05-27-2005, 09:51 PM
Well I will counter point with a sculpted chewie is better then no chewie.

I wouldnt want a Chewie either way. I never liked the character. He's only slightly less annoying than Jar Jar Binks to me. Stupid walking carpet...

But on the sculpting point of view, why cant they make a Chewie covered with hair? Perhaps if they sculpted his body and then glue on some locks of hair (which they maybe can harden by some kind of glue or something).

Gazmog
05-28-2005, 03:04 AM
I wouldn't want Chewbacca either. Not because it'll look bad, which is a possibility, but because I can't face the prospect of having to comb that coat of his. :lol

dstephan
05-28-2005, 04:31 PM
I have the Hasblow 1/6 Chewie that has hair and haven't combed it once.

I like the character a lot, but I've always had a problem with statues. I just don't think they look real enough. That's why I prefer the premiums.

So anybody want to guess what the Star Wars exclusive SDCC will be?

dstephan
05-28-2005, 04:44 PM
I can't really see them doing a Premium for an SDCC exclusive. Maybe an art print or something?

Viking28
05-28-2005, 04:53 PM
Thats what I was wondering Dave but believe me I'm all for a 1/4 if I am able to get it (that means at retail!ahahah)!

Oh boy...yes please!!!! :rock
