O.K, I'm starting a new "Rate The Figure" Thread for POTJ, so every day I'll be adding a new figure for you to rate out of 10, so here we go.

Day 1- Saturday- Obi-Wan Kenobi (Jedi)

I'd give it a 2, because it's by far the worst figure in the line, his legs are too short for his body and he has a chocolate cloak.

Jek Porky 2002
08-04-2002, 09:58 AM
Well I'm going to carry on even if no one else does.

Day 2- Sunday- Anakin Skywalker (Mechanic)
Not much better than Obi-Wan, basically it's just a tatooine Anakin with articulated knees and a bit of oil on his face, not the most needed figure at the time.

3 out of 10.

Turbowars
08-04-2002, 11:30 AM
I give both of them a -1. Both of these figures are a waste of space.

Jek Porky 2002

I rather be talking about POTF2 and POTJ, but Hasblow screwed us and came up with this Saga crap.

Lord Tenebrous
08-04-2002, 01:17 PM
Obi-Wan gets a 2, mostly because it's basically a less-articulated Jedi Duel version with Qui-Gon's saber and a less attractive version of Mace's overcloak.


Anakin gets a 7. His skin tone is darker than the initial offering (he makes Shmi look like a pasty ol' Hobbit). 10 points of articulation, a decent wrench, and a nice pit droid. While not as realistic as the droid that came with Ody Mandrell, it's a nice Mos Espa scene-filler.

I would have to give both of them a 1. I didn't care for them as I think they were some of the least attractive of the line.

Jek Porky 2002
08-04-2002, 06:02 PM
They'll get better when I get to figures like Mas Emmeda and Coruscant Guard

Day 3-Monday- R2-D2 (Naboo Escape)

5- it serves it's purpose, destinctly average, what can you say about an R2-D2 figure that doesn't light up and make noises.

Rogue II
08-04-2002, 07:24 PM
Naboo Escape R2:

I'll give it a 5 as well. Nothing great, but its not bad.

Jek Porky 2002

By the way for anyone in America, it is actually officially Monday here, I'm not cheating by putting this up on Sunday night.

I usually skip Prequel Toys. The only Prequel toys I have bought have been R2, C-3PO, Yoda, Tusken Raider Sniper, Count Dooku, and Darth Maul(Episode 1). So, I will only be grading the figures I have.

Arrogant Arse
08-05-2002, 11:19 AM
I got R2-D2 to complete the line. (That's more of the collector in me coming out.) He wasn't all that flashy. I'd give him a 3.

(Now the SAGA R2 I'd give a 6 to, plus he's got a good beat, and you can dance to it. [Sorry, watched too many episodes of American Bandstand's Rate-A-Record for my own good])

Wait a minute, we're not up to Scout Trooper yet.

brentfett
08-05-2002, 04:01 PM
I'd give the Naboo Escape R2 a 7/10.
It's his average-ness that I like! No side booster rockets, no sound gimmicks, and not 20 bucks like the holographic leia version. He looks good and displays great.

jonboy

I 'll go 6 on the R2. Like brentfett, his plainness makes him almost worthwhile. I would have preferred a retractable middle leg though.

So who's next?:D

Jek Porky 2002
08-06-2002, 04:04 PM
Day 4- Tuesday- Qui-Gon Jinn (Mos Espa Disguise)

I'll give it a 6, just a little bit more than average, but not too much more. At least he wasn't a pointless re-sculpt, although the way his arms are possitioned where a good idea, they just don't look real, the new Deluxe Mace Windu is way better.

Turbowars
08-06-2002, 06:17 PM
I hate this figure! I give it a 2. Hasblow doesn't have any idea how to make Qui-Gon. All his figures S U C K! The cloth on him looks really cheap.

Jek Porky 2002
08-06-2002, 06:52 PM
Day 5- Wednesday- Darth Maul (Final Dual)

7- Good idea with the "split in two" feature, I like the way his hand sticks out like he is pushing Obi-Wan, he actually looks quite real.

Turbowars
08-06-2002, 10:07 PM
7 also, not bad, I like the idea.

Figurestasher
08-06-2002, 11:25 PM
I give him a 6, I feel the split in two is awesome along with his expression but some good quality cloth instead of another all plastic outfit woulda been better maybe.

I give the R2 and Qui Gon each a 3 from day 3 & 4. Those figs are cheapy and plain.

5 to Darth Maul final duel good concept but just too many mauls and really not much else can be done with the figure other than breaking him apart.

thespar
08-07-2002, 03:52 PM
i give them qui-gon a 5 and maul a 7

brentfett
08-08-2002, 01:51 PM
I'd give Maul and the Qui Gon a 5 each. Why do all the Qui Gon figures look goofy? He was my favorite (good guy) character in the movie, and I would like to one day get one that I like. I think it's his face and hair. They never seem to look right, especially the hair. The Maul final Duel was a waste of a figure. He breaks apart too easily.

Jek Porky 2002
08-08-2002, 04:26 PM
Day 6- Thursday- Coruscant Guard

6, a little bit plain but still quite a nice figure.

Turbowars
08-08-2002, 07:06 PM
The Guard gets an 8. He's plain and simple. I like most officers and soldiers. Hasblow doesn't screw these babies up.

Figurestasher
08-08-2002, 07:30 PM
I give Coruscant Guard a 7.5 because he looks real cool and holds the gun well, but one of his arms doesn't move at the elbow and some cloth on him might have been cooler.

I agree with you totally Figurestasher, soft goods would have been a better idea. I had to cut the side seams of his robe, plus trim the bottom, and the arms just to get it to look and stand right. Also I forgot to mention that the figure has a decent sculpt and paint job under the hard plastic robe.:)

Rate 8

jonboy
08-08-2002, 08:29 PM
I will give him a 9. I think that he is an all around great figure and one of the better ones from the POTJ line.

I give him a 7. I kinda thought he would be a little bigger. The sculpt was great though and the paint was real nice.

jonboy
08-09-2002, 10:56 PM
I'll give him an 8. He is kind of like the new Palpy, he may just stand there and do nothing, but he's is darn good at it. Excellent figure all around.

08-10-2002, 02:31 AM
I give it an 8, awesome colors and paint. Wish I had another one to open.

Jek Porky 2002

Day 8- Saturday- Tusken Raider (Desert Sniper)

7 Fairly good pose, although I think they could have done more with it.

Rogue II
08-10-2002, 11:08 AM
I'll agree with you Jek Porky. I'll give him a 7. He isn't all that bad, but he isn't great. The could have done something a little more with it.

Jek Porky 2002
08-10-2002, 06:07 PM
Day9- Sunday- Battle Droid (Security)

8- Holds it's gun properlt, and it's feet are possitioned well, only thing is the stick coming out of it's back, oh well, it's not that noticable!

BTW, I'm going on Holiday on Saturday (17/8) so Rogue II, can you do this for me next week? I'll PM you the week's figures.

It is actually the same figure except instead of getting the sniper rifle, you get the Massif with a chain. There may be a slight color variation between the POTJ and Saga versions. There are pictures posted in the Collector's Database.

Jek Porky 2002
08-11-2002, 08:42 AM

I'll give Desert Sniper a 6. As far as the Security Battle Droid, I would have to say 8.5. He is by far the best version of the BD made so far. He has a cool pose and is fairly sturdy. I wish the Saga BD's were this good!!!

Turbowars

Day 10- Monday- Chewbacca (Dajerick Challenge)

8, Good idea, allthough it's the only pose you can get out of him, well it's either, hands on head"I'm so proud of myself" or, hands on tummy "Oh, I couldn't eat another bite"

Rogue II
08-12-2002, 05:35 PM
I like this Chewbacca. I'l give 'em an 8.

You forgot you can pose him laying on his back staring at the clouds. Hey, that cloud looks like an Ewok!

TIE Pilot
08-12-2002, 11:00 PM
Day 10- Monday- Chewbacca (Dajerick Challenge)

One of my favorite Chewie's! Unlike the newer Chewies, he's a little on the short side. But he has an excellent face sculpt, in my opinion it's a better face sculpt than the new Bespin Escape version. And yes, those arms really make it difficult to pose him. But as you can see, if you have a spare bowcaster laying around.. he holds it quite well.

Cool holo-table too :)

8.5

Figurestasher
08-13-2002, 02:25 AM
Chewie Chess Table gets a 9, I put my loose one in my vintage falcon and he and the Dajerick table fit perfect and looks freakin bad @ss! Oh well if he's a one pose wonder.

Day 11- Tuesday- Darth Vader (Dagobah)

9: Exelent pose, great idea, the see-thru plastic isn't to crappy, great idea with the removable head, and the removable face added a nice little touch, probably my second best figure in the line!

jonboy
08-13-2002, 04:19 PM
I will give Chewy a 7. Don't forget the "I surrender pose" . And Darth, I think he is an 8. Really cool version of the Dark Lord.

Rogue II
08-13-2002, 05:16 PM
I give Dagobah Vader a 9. The semi-transparent plastic gives him a nice ghostly illusion. This is one of the few figures that have a plastic cape I actually like.

Hopefully Hasbro can build on the remveable mask from this figure and to produce an "ultimate" Darth Vader with a 2 part removeable helmet.

Turbowars
08-13-2002, 06:18 PM
Chewy was the 1st POTJ figure I bought and he gets a 9+. I love the pose and the table is awsome. Vader gets a 10! Great idea and Hasblow pulled it off very well with the mask!

Jek Porky 2002
08-13-2002, 06:22 PM
Day 12- Wednesday- Liea Organa (General)

4- Way too tall, looks cheap, face looks quite masculin, and not in a very good pose.

Mandalorian Candidat
08-13-2002, 06:23 PM
The Dagobah Vader is about the best one made. in fact I have a hard time choosing between it and RH Vader from POTF2. The removable head and face plate are nice touches.

On the other hand the Bobby Fischer Chewie blows major chunks. Like POTJ Boss Nass it's solely a one-pose wonder and only good for sitting in the MF taunting C-3PO and R2. The one thing that could have made it better would have been a CT chip like it was supposed to have.

I'm glad Hasbro put out this latest Chewie with Threepio's remains. It almost makes up for this tragedy.

Figurestasher
08-13-2002, 08:08 PM
Dagobah Vader gets a 9.5, truly an awesome figure. I like both carded & loose figures but this one is best loose in my opinion because otherwise you wouldn't see the hidden face of Luke.

8, I don't know why, I just like this figure!

Turbowars
08-15-2002, 06:13 PM
Generial Leia is a crappy figure. I mean she looks like a dude, like most Leia's. She gets a 3. Old Ben gets a 8. Just a good over all figure. I think he was the 1st to have a hilt?

DarthBrandon
08-15-2002, 06:14 PM
I would give Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi (Jedi Knight) an eight as well, and like Jek Porky 2002, I don't know why, I just like the figure.
Darth Vader Dagobah gets a 10, simply best Vader besides RH in my opinion, to ever be made, so far to date.:)

Rogue II
08-15-2002, 09:31 PM
This particular be is pretty nice. Sure, he is lind of limited in movement because of his plastic robe, butI still dig him. I give him an 8.

Oops, almost forgot General Leia....

5. Her body sculpt is ok, but why can they never seem to get Leia's face right? They always seem to give her strange weapons she never uses.

Figurestasher
08-16-2002, 01:11 AM
General Leia gets a 5 cause she is kinda plain but at least she does'nt look like an ape this time around, and Old Ben gets a 7, cool figure..too cool to have been hangin on the pegs like they did. Mine has this evil look to him that is a little wierd. Rating these figs makes me remember the good ol' POTJ days when only the diehard collectores were out and about ... thats cool to me.

5, Very average, not as detailed as the later Luke Pilot figure.

7 - I think this captured a minor character very well

Rogue II
08-16-2002, 06:28 PM
Jek Porky:

I guess I'll give him a 7 as well. Pretty decent sculpt all around, for a background character. I am still puzzled why they made him instead of Red or Gold Leader, but I like him anyway.

I was bored tonight, so I compiled all of our ratings in an Excel spreadsheet. If I screwed something up, let me know.

sith_killer_99
08-24-2002, 09:00 AM
Actually, we kind of DID beg Hasbro for it.

From a certain point of view.

We were asking for more Rebel and Imperial officers. Plus we were asking for more aliens. So Hasbro gave us a Mon Calamari Officer.

This figure is basicly just a re-hased Admiral Ackbar....with a hat, which was a nice touch.

I kinda like his figure, but he's nothing spectacular.

Mon Calamari gets a 6.5 from me. I like the idea of the fig, but there really isn't a whole lot to it. Good detail and sculpt, but not alot of play value.

From a certain point of view.

We were asking for more Rebel and Imperial officers. Plus we were asking for more aliens. So Hasbro gave us a Mon Calamari Officer.


Good point, I didn't think about that. Jek Porky 2002 should be back to post tomorrow's figure. Well, I hope he is because this was the last figure on the list he sent me.

Yes, I'm back, thanks Rogue II, I really appreciate you doing this, your a true pal and I hope it wasn't too much hastle for you!

Anyway, back to the subject in hand:
Sunday- K-3PO (Echo Base Protocol Droid)

7, Deos it's job well, nice accessory, even though it is only a re-paint of the EpI TC-14!

Rogue II
08-25-2002, 11:54 AM
No problem Jek, any time.

K-3PO: He was a nice suprise. I give him an 8. You have to love non movie years so you can get figures like this (and other obscure characters).

Tuesday- Plo Koon (Jedi Master)

7, not the best jedi figure ever, I don't like the yellow lightsaber (I'm not a great fan of multiple lightsaber colours!), he's a bit limited as to what you can do with him, and he doesn't have a very realistic pose!

I have updated the spreadsheet for our rankings.

So far, IG-88 has the best average(9.6) followed by Dagobah Darth Vader(9.2).

Again, if you want to go back and rate a figure you missed, I will be more than happy to update the spreadsheet. Also, if I made a mistake on your rating, let me know.

Sorry I've not been around for a few days, here are the ones we've missed:

Boba Fett, I give an 8, because it was spectacular at the time but now, nearly all the Saga Jango's we've had have put it to shame!

Saesee Tiin (Jedi Master), I give it a 3, definatly the worst Jedi next to the EpI Adi Gallia, you can't do anything with it.

Liea Organa (Bespin Escape), 5 nice sculpt, but a bit too small, especially when you stand her next to...

Chewbacca (Melenium Falcon Mechanic) 7, very nice, almost the correct hight and comes with some nic accessories.

BTW, keep up the spreadsheet Rogue II, then at the end we can see who is are favorate POTJ figure, as voted for by you, The Sir Steve's Guide reader!

Me and you Rogue II, we is a team!

Rogue II
09-01-2002, 09:25 AM
Boba Fett 300: 8 Great sculpt, not very poseable.

Leia (Bespin Escape): 7 - Its ok. She came with the extra blaster so the POTJ IG-88 would be fully armed.

Chewbacca (Mechanic): 9 - I really like this one.

If anyone wants to go back and rate some figures or change or make a change to their past ratings, let me know.

Here are the figures we've done so far:
Obi Won Kenobi (Jedi)

Thanks for posting the complete list Rogue II, saves me from having to read through all four pages and take notes.:)

Boba Fett 300: 8 Great figure, I bought two and I HATE Boba Fett. His poseability is a little crappy, but the detailed paint job and amazing sculpting is incredible. But I agree with Jek, the Saga Jango's put this Boba to shame.

Leia (Bespin Escape): 10+++++!!!! Quite simply one of the best Leia's ever and probably one of the best figures in the POTJ line. I can't stress enough how much I like this figure!! Finally we have a Leia who is not only the correct height and build, but who looks EXACTLY like Carrie Fisher!:cool:

Chewbacca (Mechanic): 8 Great Chewie figure, and was nice to finally have a correctly scaled Chewie, I love standing him up to my Bespin Escape Leia it just makes the size differences of the two characters stand out so well! Why only an 8? Well, he was a 10 until the Saga Bespin Chewie came out. With that figure we not only got the correct height, but also ball-socket shoulders and a ball-socket neck! So Mechanic Chewie has dropped a little in esteem in my mind.

Obi-Wan Kenobi (Jedi): 0 (boring, ugly, monkey limbed rehash)

Anakin Skywalker (Mechanic): 1 (the Pit Droid saves him from being a 0)

R2-D2 (Naboo Escape): 2 (the Holo Leia version is still the best Artoo)

Qui-Gon Jinn (Mos Espa): 2 (decent sculpt, nice articulation, but an overall crappy figure and unecessary rehash)

Darth Maul (Final Duel): 3 (nice gimmick but it gets old after a few minutes)

Coruscant Guard: 5 (okay, but in the wrong pose and too limited in movement)

Mas Amedda: 5 (okay, but I'm still hoping for a Saga resculpt)

Tusken raider (Sniper): 8 (Great sculpting)

Battle Droid (Security): 10 (there hasn't yet been a better BD figure!)

Chewbacca (Dajerick): 4 (ehh, too scene specific to be useful)

Darth Vader (Dagobah): 2 (never really liked this figure, not really sure why)

Leia Organa (General): 5 (purely average)

Ben Kenobi (Jedi Knight): 6 (cool but ultimately pretty boring)

Jek Porkins: 8 (awesome figure!)

Boss Nass: 9 (another great figure, one of my favorites!)

Fode and Beed: 0 (nasty looking piece of crap!)

Sebulba: 7 (cool figure, I especially like the removable helmet)

Han Solo (Bespin): 9 (still one of the best Han Solos to date)

Battle Droid (Boomer Damage): 6 (ehh)

Scout Trooper: 9 - clean version; 7 - dirty version (I love this figure, and I don't mind the lack of articulation, but the silly pose keeps him from being a 10. Awesome little blaster though!)

Mon Calamari: 8 (cool figure, I've always wanted a generic Calamari with a helmet. Very cool!)

K-3PO: 6 (alright but he looks cheap)

IG-88: 10 (another great bounty hunter resculpt!)

Plo Koon: 5 (ehh, average)

Saesee Tiin: 3 (the only thing cool about this figure was how he was packaged holding his lightsaber by the blade. :stupid: )

I haven't posted in this thread (at least I think) so I'll just do the figs I got and were on the list of BigB (thanx:D )

Boba Fett 300: 9 I love the charactere, his pose and the detail but the only problem is poseability but that doesn't matter that much

Chewbacca (Mechanic): 8 cause his articuation isn't all that good but I like the head more then mechanic chewie (who I would give a 8 too)

R2-D2 (Naboo Escape): 7 since it's a good R2 for dioramas and has good detail and "damage"

Darth Maul (Final Duel): 4 looks ok but the Episode 1 2-pack version is much better

Battle Droid (Security): 10 best BD yet although I haven't opened my Saga ones yet

Sebulba: 7 (cool figure, I like the removable helmet)

Darth Maul Sith Apprentice: 7 great costume and heaad sculpt is good too

Tessek: 8 great sculpting and paintjob, and I like the charactere overall

Okay, I've fallen behind. Let me know if I forget anyone:

Queen Amidala (Theed)- 5 .....snore.....

Aura Sing- 3 ugly likeness, rubbery rifle, only one removable pistol

Darth Maul (Sith Apprentice)- 2 boring, useless

Tessek- 7 would be better with a cloth cape like Lando

R2-Q5- 9 kind of hard to mess this figure up, but his eye is pretty crappy

Lando Calrissian- 9 great figure! perfect likeness! best cape ever on a Star Wars toy! only the limited pose keeps him from being a 10

Jar Jar Binks (Tatooine)- 6 good sculpt, but waaay too scene specific

Sandtrooper- 9 I'm still a little miffed that they didn't do the alternate shoulder pauldron variation, great figure otherwise

Qui-Gonn Jedi Training- 1 boring, even more useless than normal for a Qui-Gonn resculpt

Obi-Wan Cold Weather- 3 great detail, too bad it's wasted on an EU figure

You also forgot to "rate" Sebulba. You made a comment on him, but didn't assign a rating.


I also meant to post this last night:

IG-88 is still our highest rated figure. It will be interesting to see how much longer this lasts with figures like BoShek and FX-7 coming up.

Anakin Mechanic and Fode and Beed are in a close battle for the worst.

The Overlord Returns

actually....I can't really rate sebulba.....never picked him up.

I'll just randomly give him a six. He seemed alright.

It just occured to me I could do this:

Average
Obi Won Kenobi (Jedi) 1.3
Anakin Skywalker (Mechanic) 2.1
R2-D2 (Naboo Escape) 5.4
Qui-Gon Jinn (Mos Espa) 3.7
Darth Maul (Final Duel) 5.6
Coruscant Guard 7.3
Mas Emedda 7.0
Tusken Raider (Sniper) 6.4
Battle Droid (Security) 8.4
Chewbacca (Dajerick) 7.6
Darth Vader (Dagobah) 8.1
Leia Organa (General) 3.9
Ben Kenobi (Jedi Knight) 7.5

Fode and Beed 1.2
Sebulba 6.5
Han Solo (Bespin) 8.4
Battle Droid (Boomer Damage) 4.0
Scout Trooper 8.4
Mon Calamari 6.3
K-3PO 7.1
IG-88 9.8
Plo Koon 7.2
Saesee Tiin (Jedi Master) 4.8
Boba Fett (300) 9.0
Leia Organa (Bespin Escape) 7.3
Chewbacca (Mechanic) 8.5
Queen Amidala (Theed) 7.2
Aurra Sing 6.0
Darth Maul (Sith Apprentice) 5.1
Tessek 7.6
R2-Q5 8.6
Lando Calrissian (Bespin Escape) 8.2
Jar Jar Binks (Tatooine) 2.0
Sandtrooper (Desert Patrol) 9.1
Qui-Gon Jinn (Jedi Training Gear) 5.1
Obi-Wan Kenobi (Cold Weather Gear) 5.5
Bespin Guard 6.4
Ellors Madak 9.3


I was wrong in my earlier post. Fode and Beed are the worst with an average rating of 1.2. Obi Won Kenobi (Jedi) is a close 2nd with a 1.3. Anakin Mechanic is at 2.1.

Well, we haven't got to him yet. We are currently rating Kewtol and Sabe (Queen's Decoy).

We have already rated all of these (http://www.sirstevesguide.com/forums/showthread.php?postid=177597#post177597)

Jek Porky puts out a figure to rate every day or two and we rate that figure. We are not doing random figures. It is too hard to keep track of.

OK....

Ketwol.....0: he replaced my beloved Lak Sivrak in the movie!! I could not bring myself to buy that usurper!!

Sabe: 8 ....nice sculpt...nice figure.

Shmi: 8 as well. She does what she is supposed to...and it's a nice looking fig.

Luke: 7.....something about this figure has always been a little lame.

We are talking about the X-Wing Luke Skywalker, right? I say 7. He's not too bad.

Darth Vader (Emperor's Wrath) 8

187-Maul
09-22-2002, 03:10 PM
I don't own either one of them (same reason why I haven't rated the last couple of figures) but still, here's my rating:

Han Solo: 3, I really hate his pose and his face sculpt, the only descent thing about him is the stormtrooper belt

Darth Vader: 7, I never got him but only because I never had the chance; I really like the see through body and the visable skull and the pose isn't bad either

Turbowars
09-22-2002, 03:48 PM
Han Solo (Death Star Escape) gets an 8.5, I love the stormy belt!!
Darth Vader (Emperor's Wrath) gets a 10.5, great idea!! I'm suprise Hasbro made him.

Rogue II

Han - 7 he's basically stuck in 1 pose.
Vader - 7


*edit* after some thought I lowered my ratings a little for both figures.

The Overlord Returns
09-23-2002, 09:49 AM
This han gets a 3 simply because it is so inferior to the hans that preceded him in recent history.

Vader: while a cool idea, it wasn't enough to impress me. It gets a 6.5

bigbarada
09-23-2002, 03:02 PM
Ketwol - 4 stupid looking alien, dull figure even with removable pants:sur:

Sabe - 5 average, not too much exciting about her, that's why I never bought her.

Shmi - 10 perfect!

Luke X-Wing - 8 in my mind he is still the best Luke made, even better than the Saga Bespin Luke, of course some accessories would have been nice

Han DSE - 8 awesome figure, the best Han Solo likeness yet, the pose limits him though.

Darth Vader EW - 6 great sculpt, interesting gimmick, way-too scene specific though

Rebel Trooper (Tantive IV Defender) 7

Rogue II
09-25-2002, 05:40 PM
Rebel Trooper: 8. Not too shabby. Seemed like his gun was a little too small. Interesting articulation.

bigbarada
09-25-2002, 05:40 PM
Rebel Fleet Trooper gets a 7 - cool articulation on his legs, but his dinky blaster and bad face sculpt kind of hurt him. I'm still holding out for the rumored alternate face sculpt. However, he is still leaps and bounds better than the original version (who would get a 1 from me if we were rating POTF2 figures).

DarthBrandon
09-25-2002, 05:47 PM
Rebel Trooper (Tantive IV Defender) I would have to give this figure a 9, 1/2 off for the blaster and 1/2 off for the limited arm pose.

Imperial Officer: 9. It would have been nice if his arms were not stuck at a 90 angle. Overall still a good figure. I hope they re-release him on the Saga card(head variation or not) so I can pick up a couple more.

Well, I'm just going to go ahead and rate the rest of the figures, then I vote we move on to POTF2 figures. Although we might have to start a thread in the POTF2 section.

Teebo - 8 I'm just stoked to have more ewoks
Zutton - 8 I like him, big head and all
FX-7 - 20:) okay make it a 10+++++++++ Probable the coolest figure ever!
BoShek - 9 don't own him but he looks great
R4-M9 - 8 nice figure
Eeth Koth - 6 ugh, the start of the extreme posing:rolleyes:
Jango Fett - 7 the pose looks a little silly but he is a cool figure
Zam Wessel - 5 ehh
R3-T17 - 8 another cool astromech
Clonetrooper - 8 flawed but I still love this figure
Amanaman - 10 awesome even if he was a little bendy
Luke Bacta - 9 another awesome figure
Leia Slave - 9 much improved resculpt
Shirtless Maul - 7 ehh

I think the last few waves of POTJ figures were the highlights of Star Wars collecting.

Oh wait, forgot:

25th Anniversary sets-
Han & Chewie - 10!!! I love this set!
Luke & Leia - 4 pretty crappy IMO
Vader & Ben - 8 cool set, I really don't like the way Ben's hood sits though, it looks wrong somehow

The Overlord Returns
10-01-2002, 11:49 AM
teebo - ewoks are good.

zutton - soft spot goes WAY back to the vintage line on this one: 8

FX - 7 - 10. Perfect.

boShek 10 again. Perfect

r4 - m9 - 8.5 ...good figure

eeth koth - 8.........nice figure...needed more articulation

Jango preview - 7....too limited.

Clonetrooper - 6........wasn't too impressed

Clonetrooper - 9 just a good trooper
Amanaman - 10 great for customing (Beru and Uncle)
Luke Bacta - 10 could believe this came out
Leia Slave - 9 improved resculpt

Gungan Warrior gets an 8 from me, if I haven't already rated him.

Here is the list of pack-ins and multi-pack figures:

Masters of the Darkside:
Darth Vader - 8 I had high hopes for this figure, then Hasbro goes and makes his undercloak out of hard plastic

Darth Maul - 6 just the standard Ep1 Maul with the Sith Lord Maul's lightsaber

Vehicle/Playset Pack-Ins:
B-Wing Pilot - 5

TIE Interceptor/Bomber Pilot - 5 they were supposed to both be "unique" but they are the exact same figure

Luke from Snowspeeder - 5

Dak from Snowspeeder - 5

Bespin Guard - 0 this has got to be the worst of the worst

Rorworr from RPG Module - 4 if Hasbro had simply made him without a bandolier, I would have given him a 10, it would have been awesome to have a little "teenager" Wookie to pal around with Chewbacca
