Hmm..Everyone knows that Choco Wan sucks sooo....I think I'll say Moisture Farmer Qui-Gonn. His arms are all goofy and stuff.:p

Chocobi-Wan gets my current vote, but Amanaman and Ephont Man are my future predictions.

evenflow I am soooo shocked! The ColdB1 figure is the best sculpt of him to date! What's not to like, except that it's a freakin' EU figure.

Definitely the worst is Bobby Fisher Chewie. He's a one-pose wonder and that's it. The only thing he's good for besides target practice with my .22 is if you're making a Millenium Falcon ANH diorama and want to get that single pose in.

Co-co covered Obi. gets the vote in Texas! I agree on the Chewie though he isn't good for poses at all. If they would have made his elbows jointed whole new ball game ,but they didn't though they are learning did you see that Impieral officer that can put his hands behind his back and stand at attention! Sweet!

I'm honestly tempted to say Aurra Sing (quickly ducks a hundreds of chocoWans being thrown at him by angry Sing fans)

It's not that there isn't anything good about her, she does have one blaster holster, and the likeness is pretty good. It's just that she was the biggest disappointment for me by far. I couldn't care less that she's missing her antennae, but why why why why why did they give her those horrible hip joints and NO waist movement. I've been trying to rationalize that ever sincve I got her and I just can't, besides sheer laziness.

This doesn't necessarily make her the worst POTJ figure, just the most dissappointing one to me.

I can't think of a more pointless resculpt than Mechanic Anakin. Articulated knees, whoopty-doo.

Magic Shell Obi-Wan
Extra-large hands Farmer Qui-Gon (good for milking Banthas)
Mechanakin

everything after those was pretty good.

I agree with most of you, with the worst being:
Mechanic Anakin: What is the point?
Dejerak Chewie: Can only do one pose.
Moisture Qui-Gon: Hands can't hold lightsaber.

I'd proably have to say.......Boba Fett......no no no, i was kidding! I would really have to say that Darth Ma/ul is my least favorite. He is useless, unless you like pushing his top half over and over again and laughing relentlessly at him, while his bottom half just stands there. Ok so I did it for about an hour.....Anyways, I didn't even buy Obi Wan with Chocolate shell. So I don't know if he is bad or not. BOO for Ma/ul!

Take that!

Super Tongue Jar-Jar sucks but I'm biased aginst the character so my feeling are unclear on the matter.

ChacObi-Wan definitely both sucks and blows at the same time.

Obi-Dan Kenobi

Magic Shell Obi-Wan, for sheer uselessness and an unimpressive resculpt, is bad, then that stupid break-apart Maul. We in no way needed these figures, especially with the marginally superior two-pack figures (which are sitting on shelves in my area beside their POTJ counterparts). At least there was a point to Qui-Gon, since the Eopie is nowhere to be seen in the states. But the most annoying to me is Jar-Jar with Big Long Tounge. As if the character isn't irritating enough, they have to make this annoying figure of him to take up space in an otherwise awesome wave of figures. Plllllllllpt.:p

I somewhat agree with pthfnder89. While I would not label Aurra Sing as the worst POTJ figure, she might be the most disappointing to me. Her goofy stance really limits her display value!

Kneelin' MechAni is definitely the worst IMO.

There are so many bad figures I really can't decide. Of course the easy choices: Anakin Mechanic, Magic Shell OB1, Moist Farmer Qui-Gonn, Break-Apart Maul.

I realy liked the Tatooine JarJar, and if you're a little creative you can put him in many different poses.

Aurra Sing has a sculpt only a die-hard fan could love.

The only figure that really ticked me off was Naboo Escape Artoo, just a totally useless disappointment. Why release a new figure when it's clearly inferior to previous releases? Namely COMMTECH Artoo. It just makes me mad.:mad: Really mad!:mad: :mad:

Really, really, mad!!:mad: :mad: :mad:

Chocobi-Wan is no doubt the worse figure I've seen.

In my opinion the figures get worse the more time they resculpt them. Now if I only have to choose one I'd choose the Anakin mechanic.

The Bespin guy from the freezing playset is maybe even the worst figure of all times.

Fulit
08-19-2001, 02:05 PM
HEY! badtaste may be right, I forgot about the horrible Bespin Guard pack-in. The spaces between the top of his legs and his crotch are big enough to slide a womp rat through.

How can anyone forget aboutthat piece of Plastic!

Bespin Freeze chamber Guard is the worst by far. Magic shell wasn't the worst, just the biggest rip-off. At least we didn't get a death pose Qui-Gonn.

Chocobi-Wan, especially when compared to the previous Ep 1 Obi-Wan. I never thought I'd see an Obi-Wan that was worse than a Maul in the same wave.

What is this figure and why are you calling him chocobi-wan?

You know the Ketwol figure still has me disappointed. I am sorry but I cant get over the tusks being upside down. If its supposed to be an Episode 1 figure then why not market as such. But as it stands being part of the SE. its terrible!

My vote is split between the pointless "MechAnikan" with the questionable accessory and "Choco-Wan" Kenobi with the Willy Wonka produced Jedi cape/shell. These are the kinds of figures that give resculpts a bad name.

My vote goes to Aurra Sing.
Like others have said, the hip joints suck; only one holster is "functional" and the accessories are horrible (they're like putty, but most POTJ accessories are like that, ex: Bespin Leia).

Dejerak Chewie: Can only do one pose.

Yes, but if you take Jabba's Dancers and maybe if you are really creative, a joking jar jar, and combine them with Chewie--put them in their appropriate positions and viola--you have created your own mini sleazly strip joint.

Not that I would--I don't own any of the figs I mentioned above.

So many of the POTJ figures are truly awe inspiring. (Too strong?) The ones that suck beyond all recognition are:

Anakin Mech
Chocobi-Wan
Moist Qui-Gon
Aura Sing (So much potential!!!! Such a shame)
Apprentice Maul

Quite possibly General Leia. Don't yet have her.

Apart from these, the rest really are good.

Bald Ewok: Iknow what you mean about the tusks of Ketwol. I noticed the same thing. I just melted mine. NOW they point upwards!!!!!!

I'll have to say the dirty Scout trooper...whats the purpose of this one if we have just two Ewoks!!!

Dirty scout trooper is there so we can actually GET some! I mean I never even SAW a clean one in the store, I bought mine online.

I'm totally with you on that one Plo, my man. I never saw a single clean Trooper in any store, but about 1 1/2 months ago I was finally able to pick up about 4 or five in one day.

Clean or dirty, I'm just freakin glad I found any!

I was so ****ed when they came out w/ General Leia! Esp. cause I bought an extra Hoth Leia and Minted Millennium Whatever Coin Leia for the express purpose of making my own General Leia! ARRGHHH!

You could use the vintage ones,the Ewok 2pack,princess leia 2 pack and the Galaxy Ewok version plus the upcoming 2 POTJ figures to verse your Dirty Scout

The Obi Wan Kenobi, in jedi training gear. I don't know what kind of pose he's suppost to be doing but I think hes pretty bad. :evil:
