Worst: "Gorilla" Chewy (1995), Han Endor, "Macho" Lando (1996).

Is Endor Han ~really~ that bad? I kinda like him. Yes, his shirt is wrong.. and he suffers from "buffness" as most of the early POTF2 figures do. But the bulkiness of the trenchcoat seems to hide it. I dunno.. I kinda like this Han figure.

But I do agree that Washboard abs Lando and Sasquach Chewie are ~very~ bad.

Worst : R5-D4 (horrible !), all the first body building orange card wave (better play on a California beach :-)), the swow chewie, the freeze frame chewie (IT SQUINTS !!!).
SOTE Chewie (looks like a Masters Of The Univers figure....).
First green card Vader (seems he had eaten too much Mc Donalds and Soda's...). All three figures from the Jabba's Skiff guards cinema scene (seems they're unfinished). The "I told you not to eat too much" Han Solo from beastpack with Jabba (horrible too).

Best : all the Comtech wave (especially the Jawa with Gonk dro´d), Aunt Beru, Max Rebo, Cantina Band member, Rebel pilots cinema scene (all), and lots more...

"You wrote to me once, listing the four chief POTF2 figures -- R2D2 with holo Leia, Vader with removable helmet, Tarkin, and Aunt Beru. As I read the list I knew I had none of them. But I have other figures -- Chewie, that can be a figure when building a Planet of the Apes diorama; monkey leia; han endor, perhaps not in the correct shirt but Han Solo has many shirts; Buff Luke, to Ebay he flew. But none of my figures were on your list. Even then it was as if they didn't want me as a fan... "

personally, i love all of my figures, i've had sooo many fun hours playing with them, but if i had to pick a least favorite it would be R5-D4, ONLY because he has the missile, other than that i absolutely LOVE my figures, because i have all of the figures that were on orange cards (now off because i was only 9 or so and star wars was my life) my family knew how much i liked star wars so they bought me all of my collection, except boba (again, first variation) but i sold him to my little bro cuz he has slave 1, i have a fair collection, all off card cuz, what's the point in having a toy if you can't play with it? so ALL of my figures are off card and i LOVE THEM ALL!!!

I think one of the most over looked but one of the best POTF2 figures was Lando as Skiff Guard. It was well proportioned, had a sweet removeable helmet, came with the right accessories, and he was in a nice neutral pose. :cool:

I like Skiff Guard Lando as well, for the same reasons. And I picked him up cheap, in a supermarket. Ah, I found many a figure there. For some reason, I really like Emperor Palpatine (with walking-stick). I spent ages looking for him.

Best has to be Vader with removable helmet, hands down.

The worst for me has to be all of the 'Schwarzeneggerized' figures.

Agreed on the Vader as the best. The worst was that first Leia they released. It looks like it was Drag-queen day at the Skywalker Ranch.

The best for me were: Motti
Aunt Beru
Mon Mothma
Pote Snitkin
Anakin (FF)
Grand Moff Tarkin

The worst IMO were:Princess Leia Organa
Lando and the steroid induced line.


Usually we were so happy to see new figures I cant say that I really hate any of them. Nicer sculpts would have been nice.
