    The Bespin Luke really improves on the last version Hasbro made. Which other figures do you reckon would benefit from a new sculpt?

    I think Jedi Luke is a must, with changeable gloved hand and decent cloak.

    Agreed, Jedi Luke would be great, A good Jabba toy would be good too....

    I am too concerned with seeing the first of a figure (Even Piell) to worry about resculpting....

    But if they were to make a better Boba Fett, not that the last one is bad, but if they were to make it like Jango...I would enjoy that.

    I think that they need to re-do the Arena PAdme figure. I know that this is already a new figure, but Hasbro couldn't have done a worse job!

    I agree that a "Jango like" Boba figure is needed. The last figure of Boba is fine, but a little too posed for my taste.

    A new Jedi Luke is long overdue and one of the few resculpts I'd actually look forward to.

    I would love to see a new ANH Leia in the white dress. The POTF2 Leia looks that worse, it would be time to resculpting her!

    I wan't to see awesome lifelike new sculpts of the following figures and I don't wan't any poo poo action features or battle poses. I wan't them like the Saga Royal Guards are. Standing up straight with good accesories.

    TESB X-Wing Luke. With realistic sculpt and removable helmet. Comes with Grappling hook gun and Blue Lightsabre.

    ROTJ Emperor Palpatine with Royal Guard like lightning accesories and walking stick.

    TESB Yoda with gimerstick and cloth back pack.

    ROTJ Luke without vest, with new detailed sculpt of his green lightsabre and handcuffs.
    His hands should be aticulated so they can fit in the cuffs and hold the sabre with both hands. They should also be able to have his arms at his sides.

    ROTJ Darth Vader. A brand new regular ROTJ Darth Vader not in any lame pose but just standing tall with all the details to 100% and a plastic Cape that doesn't flow into the wind, but rather just sits there on his back like the Removable helmet Vader. He shold have arms that are articulated so he can hold his sabre in both hands and have them at his sides or on his belt in his usual pose.

    A lot of wishes you have, Reign. But I agree with you that it's time that figures with lightsabres which they can hold them with both hands. It just looks ridicolous if you display them loose and they have to hold the lightsabre just in one hand.

    make an 'Old' Ben Kenobi with a head that looks like SAG.

    Since '95 we have had the POTF2 Ben on ever card possible with the same head.The POTJ Ben was better but had the same head,and the 25th Anniversary Ben is good,but again has the same head.

    would it kill you to try and sculpt a new head ?

    please give it a try !!!

    A new emperor would be good, as there are only about 2 different types available. A hohographic one would be good, as he appeare in ESB.

    The first thing I thought of was Bib Fortuna. The 12" one looks great, but the 3 3/4" stinks. His head looks like it's floating, and his robe makes him look chubby. It's a horrible sculpt. The vintage one looks way better than the 90s one. Other than that, I would have said a Royal Guard with feet, but they've done that already.

    I wish they would find the vintage mold for Jabba the Hutt and use that instead of the chessy one with the slime. My vintage Jabba is one of my favorite creatures, but mine is missing his arms :-(

    I've already mentioned tons of figs that I'd like to see overhauled. Most of them released a month or two ago:

    Anakin, Obi-Wan, Mace Windu, Dooku... with their usual Jedi Garb, able to hold the saber with both hands....And Obi-Wan, Mace, and Anakin come with the Jedi Cloaks that can be removed...

    We need a Jedi Luke with great articulation, as others have said.

    We need definitive versions of the main characters with as much articulation as possible. Spare no expense. Give us some figures with RANGE.

    Luke and Vader are musts.

    We also need a new R5 D4 and a new Padme arena, as the current one BLOWS.

    More versions of Imperial officers, too, with varying uniform styles and colors.

    Please don't give us any more Mauls or Qui Gons. These guys only had ONE friggin' outfit (okay, two if you count with or without cloaks)...but we're getting dozens of redundant figs of these guys while languishing without a decent and versatile Jedi Luke.

    I'd like to see them redo Han Solo Carbonite, the vintage one is one of my fav. figures. The POTF2 one just wasn't done that well IMO and I don't collect the playsets so I missed out on the ones that came with those.

    Personaly I don't think that Hasbro should ever do another ANH Luke, Leia, Han, Chewie, Vader, Obi, or any Boba. They have nailed all of these figures and anything else they do would just cheapen the amazing sculpts of them that are out there.

    Jedi Luke though...

    In the modern era there have only been two sculpts of this figure. One with vest (with variations) and one with out (but he was a FX figure). Whats up wit dat? The final and most important scene in the entire SW saga and we only get one figure ?[face_plain]

    I know it would be hard (if not impossible) but I want a 4" Jedi Luke with a fold out piece of white tunic (symbolizing his defeat of the Dark Side and Embrace of the "light") Most important scene in the Saga. Period.

    I agree Weezer. We already have great sculpts for every main character in ANH. However some of the ROTJ characters like Palpatine, Jedi Luke, Jabba, Bib Fortuna and Han Trenchcoat are long overdue for a resculpt.

    Same goes for TESB with X-Wing Luke, Dagobah Luke, Hoth Luke and Han, Yoda, Admiral Piett, C3P0 and Snowtrooper.

    To make a cool looking Anakin figure ,just take the Jedi robe of the Qui-Gon Jinn or Obi-Wan episode 1 figures.

    I used Qui-Gon because it is a darker robe than Obi-Wan's,and more like Anakins.

    Just put the robe on Hanger duel Anakin and then you have an Anakin figure that looks very good and complete.

    Remember,Anakins robe doesn't have sleaves in,so the Qui-Gon robe looks very good on him.

    If the crappy arm is doing your head in,swop it with another jedi and paint it to the same colour as Anakins outer robe.

    and there you have,a complete and cool looking Anakin Skywalker !!!

    The POTF2 Leia stinks! Just look at [link=]her[/link].

    Compare it to the [link=]POTJ Bespin Escape Leia[/link].

    If I see the POTJ Leia, I think Hasbro could make a damn good ANH one.

    ok. Uncle Owen. I hat that figure. It's really ugly!!! I want to see a new Jabba. I saw him a couple years ago and never bought him. And I really want to see more imperial people that they made. Wasn't it Ozzel and Piett? I never got them!

    PatJedi82 they've already remade Leia twice. Here are the remakes of that horrible 1995 version. Both are really good.
