For example, I've had an hard time finding a good place for the 2006 Hammerhead, since my cantina diorama already had the POTF2 version. I would have preferred Hasbro to make the Defel (Arleil Schouss?) or a different cantina patron.
Don't get me wrong; I can understand it from the customizer's perspective, but that's just not where I'm coming from. I was even a bit put out that Hasbro updated Vizam rather than making Vidain or Yotts Oren.
Ah, when the 2006 Hammerhead came out, I bought about 5 of them quickly. I remember when he was first hitting, I drove over an hour out of my way to go to a Walmart that had him. I still buy more from time to time for customs and whatnot.
I used one for my ANH cantina diorama, the rest thrown into my fodder bins, and my POTF2 Hammerheads all became custom fodder (about a dozen of those, I'd say).
I'd love to see them revisit Hammerhead again. A super articulated version would suit me just fine. I'm almost always in favor of good upgrades... I like to have the most detailed versions of character for my scenes, and then extras for customs.
Below is a comparison... the POTF2 one, which was a great figure for its time... so was the SAGA2 version... but I'd be highly in favor of them making a new version of this guy.
