Today starts off Yak's Top Ten 2018: The Vintage Collection: The Phantom Menace
    Pick up to 10 figures you’d like to see done in 4” The Vintage Collection scale.
      If submissions have more than ten entries, only the first ten will be considered!
      Do not list multipacks as a single entry
      Only one vote per character
    All figures are eligible, whether it’s a new figure, a repaint, re-issue, deluxe, etc.
    Feel free to add descriptions to any of your choices, such as pack-ins.
Have fun!
My list:

1. Tey How
2. Queen Amidala (Theed Invasion)
3. Anakin Skywalker (Tatooine, with Podracer Helmet)
4. Elan Mak
5. C-3PO
6. Senator Palpatine
7. Chancellor Vallorum
8. Shmi Skywalker
9. Sebulba
10. Adi Gallia

Man, there are so many figures from the movie that need to be re-done or have a first release (Jedi, podracers)
Initially, I'd say I am content with what has been released over the years, and have no desire to see anything resculpted. I had to pull out my copy of Star Wars Chronicles: The Prequels to even come up with unmade characters! The first two are unmade podracer pilots, both tiny, so they'd be limited to 5 POA (or less) and should be in a 2-pack (if Hasbro expects people to buy them). The second two are unmade alien races that appear in the movie as senators - little chance of seeing them made, but interesting designs. Finally, the only Jedi I think is begging for a resculpt is Depa Billaba, so she can finally sit in her Jedi Council chair.

1.) Ebe Endocott
2.) Aldar Beedo
3.) Toonbuck Toora
4.) Mot Not Rab
5.) Depa Billaba
A lot of good choices so far. My list is a mix of a few re-sculpts with the rest being new.

1) Captain Panaka (SA with removable hat)*
2) Naboo Royal Security (SA with removable hat)
3) Padme Naberrie; Tatooine (SA)
4) Queen Amidala; Battle of Naboo (SA)**
5) Chokk; Jabba's Guard [Klatooinian]
6) Boles Roor
7) Kitster/Wald (Wald over Kitster)
8) Weazel
9) Sei Taria; Valorum's administrative aide
10) Senator Tikkes

*=same body new head to make Jerus Jannick (Dominic West's character) and a generic Security Officer
**=same body, new heads to make the other handmaidens

Not familiar with background character names but a bunch of figures need some SA updates

1 Padme Tatooine peasant
2 Padme red "take back Theed" outfit
3 Cap Tarpals
4 senate ET (would make a good exclusive)
5 Panaka
6 C-3PO
7 Shmi
8 Qi Adi Mundi
1. Adi Gallia
2. Captain Panaka
3. Eeth Koth
4. Ki-Adi-Mundi
5. Nute Gunray
6. Plo Koon
7. Saesee Tiin
8. Senator Palpatine
9. Sio Bibble
10. Supreme Chancellor Valorum

These are in alphabetical order, not by preference. Some have never been updated (discounting TCW) since 1999 (like Bibble, Gallia, Koth, Palpatine, Panaka, Valorum), :o so I think it's about time they got some TVC love. :love:
As a huge phantom menace fan I collected every variant and milti pack back I'm the day but it's time for a few updates for sure

10- TVC/SA Nute and Rune
9- TVC/SA R2-B1
8- TVC/ SA Panaka
7- TVC/ SA Gragra with kiosk
6- TVC/SA Watto
5-TVC/SA Yaddle
4-TVC/SA Yarael Poof (with pizza box)
3-TVC /SA Bib Fortuna
2- TVC/ SA female Bravo squad pilot
1- TVC Amidala Return to Naboo (purple dress)
