These were some of the most unusual and striking images and characters from the trilogy. The variety was always amazing and the details were still pretty good for pre-POTF2/POTJ quality. You could do anything with these figures; make them Rebels, Imperials, bounty hunters, whatever. Weird but cool!

Greedo
Jawa
Sand People
Hammerhead
Walrusman
Snaggletooth
Ugnaught
Prune Face
Nien Nunb
Admiral Ackbar
p.s. Chewbacca could fit the category, too, I guess.

I'll take Snags (red version). A sentimental favorite, I guess :) Sure, he may have been fairly inaccurate but I was definately fooled!

Out of that list, I have to say Jawa.


Amanaman is my favorite though.

D'HarHan.
it was a human that got his head chopped off, and replaced with a laser cannon. communicated with a keypad, but could also communicate with a network of others. it was an old bounty hunter friend of Boba Fett's, found in the Bounty Hunter Wars.

I always liked the Jawa and the Sand People.

Uh, you have some Vintage figure I'm not aware of, JWB? These are toy favorites, not Expanded Universe ones. But it sounds like it'd been a cool one! Laser cannon heads rule! :Pirate: Arr!

In order of favourites :)

Jawa - Who doesnt like small creatures in little brown robes the cloth version is nice but not good as the other version
Snaggletooth - One of my all time favourite figures,I love him because of his height and the fact that we dont know too mkuch about him,I'm still yet to find the Power Of The Jedi version
Walrusman - Not good by todays standards and looked nothing like the actual character in the film so hopefully they'll release a new version of Ponda Soon
Hammerhead - Ah the great old Hammerhead I remember all the fun times I had with him and for once a vintage figure looks better than its newer counterpart :)
Sand People -I had so many of the sand people or RTusken raiders by todays name another great figure I had good times with and all of mine are still in good condition even better
Prune Face - The who of the star wars films?I can remember when I saw him I went who?Then was the hard time to find him on the scren when I next watched the Returnof the jedi and has a great new figure to boot too
Admiral Ackbar - Everything below mr Admiral Ackbar is not worthy of being a favourite figure,but when compared to the modern Admiral Ackbar or the soldier the vintage one is way better
Ugnaught - More uglyer than todays versions but at least Kenner got the right head on the right body :)
Nien Nunb - Another figure I dont really like,I just dont like his look and the fact that his new counterpart is pretty dull also
Greedo - didn't really look like greedo and todays modern last version with the blast mark under the jacket is far better than any old greedo anyday
Chewbacca should be in his own thread

Man, this is a tough call. I'm torn between the Jawa and Sandpeople. I think I'll give the Jawa the edge becase of the cloth cape. Plastic capes rip too easily.

Ugnaughts were cool. Although the Jawa and Snaggletooth would be contenders for the top spot also.

Waitaminute, why isn't Yoda on your list BCJ? I pick him. For such a small figure he had an amazing amount of accessories.

I really lke vintage Amanaman, but Yoda is my favorite. He has cane, snake, and a belt with all that gear!

The reason I didn't include Yoda is that I'd intended to have a "Best Force User" thread where he fit in a bit better. (The thread exists now!)
Have I even mentioned my own favorite yet? I'll check the rest of this thread and edit it if need be...

... and apparently it need be! I'd go with Walrusman. As a kid, he was the most prefect figure to take into the bathtub. I really dug those high flipper boots, and his hand had that new "sideways" gun pose that gangsta movies today feature.
