I have to say that Yoda is my favorite figure, Amanaman and the Royal Guard are tied for second.

Royal Guard ROCKS!

The original Threepio is a second.

I can only base this on figures I've actually owned (so that leaves out most of the POTF figures). But it's still kind of a toss-up. I would have to say my favorite figure consistently from childhood to adulthood has been the Imperial Commander. I loved him as a kid and I still think he's one of the best figures from the original line. Probably one of the most underrated too.

I've always kind of liked the generic humans since I could just pretend they were me.

Emperor's Royal Guard gets second because he's still the quintessential Royal Guard figure.

Rebel Commander gets third for the same reasons I like the Imperial Commander.

As a child I have to say the most played with would have to be Dath Vader!

As an adult I would have to say Amanaman.

As second runner uo I would have to say of course the Stormies!

Can you believe I can't locate a thread like this in the Old Forums?

I loved Hoth Han! Holsters rule, even if the gun's backwards. I have yet to touch Trooper Luke, as he's one of my few unopened ones, so he might overtake Han.

I forgot to mention Barada. He's my current favorite, and not just because I paid $45 for him. He's also the first beefed-up SWAF.

In case my namesake doesn't give it away I would choose the original misnomered Klaatu. The cloth accessories are the coolest features of the vintage figures and if 'Klaatu' ever sees the light of day in the modern line then I guarantee his loincloth will be made of plastic, thus making this vintage version far superior.

My favorite as a kid was the Biker Scout, hands down. After him, I liked Stormtrooper Luke (who I always used as a stormie squad leader who lost his helmet occasionally) and Hoth Luke, because he was very detailed and came with two weapons.

Although the figure that I most looked forward to getting was the Hoth Stormtrooper.

As a kid, the two figs I wanted most but never got was Rebel Fleet Trooper and Mon Calamari crewmen - fortunately, POTJ fixed that.

Hmm... what 2 weapons were those? Mine only came with a rifle with strap. Or is this the POTF2 one with a gun and blue saber?
