From the POTJ line which figure do you hate the most? And why?

Jar-Jar Tatooine!

Why? It's Jar-Jar, need I say more? OK, how about that rediculous tongue!!!

The only good thing about this figure was the folded up pit droid (which can't even unfold into a standing pit droid).

Wow! To hate a figure with passion...

Yeah, I don't like the Jar Jar Tatooine a whole lot either. I got it more for the folded up pit droid. I thought maybe I would do a diorama in the future if Watto's shop ever came out like Jabba's Palace or the Cantina and would put it in it.

What I really don't like are Daffy duck DM and Chocobi1. They're the reason why I'm no longer a 'completist' collector. They could have turned out to be pretty good, but the sculpts were just horrible. IMO, that whole wave was horrible. I'll throw in Moisture Qui-Gon and General Leia to boot.

Fode and Beed. It's the only POTJ figure I have been able to resist buying. IMO, the only really poorly designed alien from Ep1 and an ugly figure to boot. How in the world did this thing warrant two figures?:mad:

I hate any resculpts. I don't need more than one different variation of the same Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon, or Anakin.

I guess we're just talking POTJ here?

Darth Maul Sith Apprentice (EU).

I absolutely despise the Carbon Freezing Chamber Bespin Guard. That was a waste of plastic. (It sucked like first generation POTF2, but it came in a POTJ box.)

It was goofy looking; not all body parts were to scale; the detail was not to POTJ standards; and he didn't even come with a blaster! Compare it to the carded POTJ Bespin Guard and it was pure crap.

I think it's gonna be the new Eeth Koth for me... only because he looks SO unlike the rest of the Jedi Council members that have been made up to this point...

By the way... did anyone notice that the legs seem to be positioned relatively the same way for all of the "action posed" figures (Helmet-head Obi-Wan, Surly Escape Han, Chippendales Maul)?

Just something that bothers me about that... oh, well.

It's gotta be Sith Apprentice Maul or Obi-Wan Jedi Knight (young. of course). There's been quite a bit of junk in this POTJ line, but there are definitely a lot of gems, too.

Yes...i agree with BB that Fode and Beed had no reason to be made...it was already been released...:mad: the only thing is that the Fode and Beed in cluded in the Jabba toy is different than the POTJ line. The heads are switched!!:eek:

There are some others, but those are the ones I haven't got because of the fact that their terrible.

Pretty much all the Ben Kenobi figures (except the Cold Weather) cuz they are plain and ugly. I was glad to pick Old Ben and Chocopuff up at KB for only $2.99 cuz $6.99 would have been highway robbery.

WHAT?!?! Old Ben is the best Old Ben to come out so far!!! Just cause the dude's a pegwarmer doesn't make him a crap figure. Do what I did and put the Jedi robe from the EPI Tatooine accessory pack on him. Viola! The coolest Old Ben action figure ever!

As for crappiest POTJ....

Fode and Beed

I have to agree with Bigbarada and Lobito, Fode and Beed are the worst POTJ figure-figure's produced. The necks don't match the head color. The best thing about them is the tail and that's not saying much!:mad:

Fode and Beeb were very lame. I really don't know what my most hated one is. I can tell what I hated about one of the cool figures is. Aurra Sing. Damn cool figure, but her second blaster won't come out of the holster and she isn't even close to being an articulate figure. Her harms are in the dumbest positions. That really ****ed me off.

Yes, Hasbro should have put ball-shoulder-joints on the Aurra Sing figure and made the second gun removable.

I hate the Darth Maul Sith Apprentice (EU). :mad: i think it was just a horrible figure.

Jar-Jar Tatooine. I was lucky enough to see that wave twice but there's no way I was going to buy that figure. What a stupid figure. One Jar-Jar figure in my collection will due, until he wears a different outfit in Ep2. That folded-up pit droid is cool, though. Runners up: Chocobi, Split Maul, Anakin Mechanic, Leia General, Freezing Chamber Guard (I know, big surprise I'd pick those.).

Fode and Beed is an okay figure, if you ask me. At least it looks like the character in the movie, unlike the Jabba version.

Sith Killer: Aurra does have ball-jointed shoulders.
The non-removable gun does suck, though.

EP: I did the same thing with Old Ben. I thought it was a good figure of him, and I put the accessory pack cape on him and have him in my cantina.
