That FO Gunner/Technician is very cool.

Agreed!  I'm hoping that Hasbro will get to this Trooper soon.  I think it's such a sharp design.

is the terrible AT-AT walking machine.
It's as big as a house on walking legs,
and whatever it steps on it crushes like eggs.

I really would like to see some better measure of articulation return to the 3.75" figure line.  But that comes with the caveat that not all characters are created equal when it comes to articulation.  For instance, does Unkar Plutt REALLY need a premium level of articulation?  Or some Republic Senator before they got wiped out on Hosnian Prime? 

For now, these are the characters that I would like to get.  I'm passing on putting Luke and Leia on the list since Hasbro has stated that they're on the way, but they haven't disclosed when.  And I also get the feeling that an SA version of Han Solo is likely on the way in the WalMart exclusive Black Series. 



1 - Lor San Tekka



2 - Bobbajo



3 - Bala-Tik (Guavian death gang)



4 - ME-8D9 (Maz Kanata's castle droid)



5 - Grumgarr (Maz Kanata's castle)



6 - Wollivan (Maz Kanata's castle)



7 - B-U4D (Resistance Droid)



8 - Jessika Pava (Resistance Pilot) - Black Series Articulation



9 -Kylo Ren - wounded, no helmet - Black Series Articulation



10 - First Order Gunner/Technician  - Black Series Articulation

Since Hasbro killed off the super-articulated 3 3/4" figures (or at least rendered them an overpriced and hard to find walmart exclusive line), I lost interest in this scale.  However, if they brought back the SA 3 3/4" figures, I'd probably try to pick up some of the new alien designs (I like the look of the Haask (sp?) thugs - they remind me of space-faring Duloks from the Ewoks cartoon).  It'd also be cool to have a bunch of the Resistance X-Wing pilots (I might just buy the basic figure versions of Poe Dameron and Allo Asty). 

So far the only 3 3/4" Force Awakens figure I have picked up is the walmart exclusive FO Stormtrooper.  It's not a bad figure, but nothing special either.  The range of motion in the elbows is disappointing (much like the 6" Black Series counterpart).  I also despise the 45 degree angle ball-hip joints.

It's been over 2 months since the theatrical release of THE FORCE AWAKENS.  And the toy line has been with us for about 6 months.  So what characters are YOU hoping to get in the Hasbro 3.75" figure line for THE FORCE AWAKENS? 

Check out these reference sources for character choices:

StarWars.com Databank

Wookieepedia - The Force Awakens

So what are your Top Ten most wanted figures from THE FORCE AWAKENS?
