Which Star Wars character were you disappointed not to see in original figure form?

For myself Dr Evazan was a great bit part character. Far bigger role than snaggletooth or Ree Yees to name a few who made it onto our shelves.

I would have like it when Kenner had released a Y-Wing pilot.

The girl that brief before the battle in e6.
Always wondered why they made characters like anakins ghost and imperial dignitary and not that girl who seemed rather important.
Ev-9d9, sy snootles and Leia are the only 3 females, could have done one more imo Smile

No not loads of females, that's one female in different gear Razz. I feel that mon was left out. She seemed to have a large role in the rebel alliance. I guess instead we got general madine.

One female figure that the male or female side wouldn't have minded was a Leia as Jabba's slave. I wonder how many of those would be for sale on Ebay with "plenty of play wear".

I know I'm only kidding. General madine had a large part in the original cut, but it got binned.

At the time I longed for Beru, Owen, Tarkin, etc. Their omissions were really obvious.

But, with hindsight, I did get more playability out of early Kenner's idea that kids would want strangely brightly coloured aliens and droids as secondary characters instead.

It would be nice if we had both, but I reckon that the first film was before Kenner realized that there was a market for dozens of figures.

I always wanted a Mon Mothma too seeing as I was told she was leader of the rebellion. If she was in the first film Kenner could have made her more colourful by putting her in a blue wet-suit, a saggy orange leotard and a pair of flippers.

Tantive IV Rebels, Tarkin, Stormtrooper Han (seems like a no-brainer), are all cool I would have played with them, BUT I think a Biggs Darklighter, or another pilot from the battle on the Death Star like Porkins or Wedge would have been great.
