So far, I've not gotten a chance to collect a lot of these....

but, from the ones I managed to collect, my favorites are:

Mon Calamari Trooper

Gungan Warrior

R2-Q5

I'm sure there's some better ones, but I haven't gotten my hands on any of the Amidala variants, Plo Koon, or Saesee Tiin.........

I still also want K-3P0, Imperial Officer, and Ellors Madak (I want two of them, so I can customize one into Lott Dodd (The Duros and the Neimoidians look remarkably similar)

My favorite ones seem to be the droids, R2-Q5, FX-7 K3P0. Oh and of course the Tusken Raoder (sorry, he was one of the worst pegwarmers. I'm just paying some homage to my avatar) ;)

I thought this was the worst line of all, except for the last 9 figures. Their sculpts are all pretty good, so it's hard for me to pick one. I would probably say BoShek if I had him. The removable helmet and holster w/pistol are killer. I hope his articulation is good.
Of the ones I have, I pick Rebel Trooper and Imperial Officer.

FX-7 is easily my favorite from this line. :) The detail is astonishing, and I love the fact that he can find his way into the Bacta Luke playset. For a stationary droid, he sure has a lot of play value. :D

I've just managed to complete my collection of the POTJ figs.

Well the best, I think would have to be ...... Bo Shek.

What can I say. Very well sculpted, perfect detail and NOT in one of those pre-posed positions. I HATE THOSE.

A very good likeness to a character only seen briefly in the cantina.

Closely followed by FX-7. Also great likeness and amazing articulation.

Darth Vader (Emperor's Wrath) is DEFINITELY the best POTJ sculpt!!! The detail is staggering. The body proportions, the wrinkles in the suit, and especially the helmet!!! The translucent bluish black helmet with the skull underneath is remarkable!! The whole figure is just...amazing!!! Words can't do it justice.

I guess I'm gonna hafta track down all the POTJ figures I missed.....

I didn't know that Emperor's Wrath Vader had the skull inside!!!

okay, how's Dagobah Spirit Vader done?, I know he's got a removable head....but does the mask open up, to reveal Luke's face?

Arrghhh! You don't know?!?!

Wow, you have GOT to get this figure!!!

The whole figure is made of a semi-translucent dark plastic. You can pretty much see thru the figure if you hold it up to the light.

3 points of articulation in each arm (wrist, elbow and shoulder).

Best, "to scale" and "proportioned" Vader to date.

Best Head sculpt to date.

Removable head with a removable face plate, which reveals Luke's face.

The most highly detailed Vader lightsaber, for the 3.75 inch figures, to date!

Simply awesome! Every SW collector should have this figure!!! IMHO

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

My favorite will have to be Amanaman. I wanted this figure redone for the longest time, and they certainly did him justice.

Other honorable mentions go to Emperor's Wrath Vader, 300th Fett, and Mechanic Chewie.

It is a pretty cool figure, I think even better than EW Vader. If you haven't found him yet, try KB. I found one there for either 1.99 or 2.99 a while back. They seemed to have a whole bunch along with Mechanakin and Oldie-Wan on clearance.

I bet anything that towards the end of the summer TRU will have a bunch on clearance like they did with EP1 and POTF. I'm still holding out hope to find a clean biker trooper at a future TRU sale.

My KB ain't had squat for some time now......except Ketwol......

'sokay though....I'm thinking like you.......Perhaps TRU will have a POTJ clearance within the next few months, to clear space for Episode II stuff.........

I'd have to say Obi-wan Kenobi (Jedi) with his cool removable cloak.

Just kidding! :p

Really though, I like Sebulba (Boonta Eve Challenge) and Eeth Koth (Jedi Master) the best.

I would have to say- Luke in the Bacta Tank- I never thought that they would come out with that.

My favourite would have to be 300th Boba Fett, a great pose and very well detailed.

A special mention for Bo-Shek. Extremely well sculpted and on top of that, looks just like my friend Victor!

I found BoShek yesterday and I have to say he is definitely the best of the line. It's just a cool looking figure with the removable helmet with the 'tinted' visor and holstered pistol. And checkout those rockabilly sideburns! Pretty good. Brian Setzer would be proud.

FX-7 hands down...is IMO the best figure in the line!

My fave is definitely the 300th anniversary Boba Fett. While he is in one of those pre-posed stances, the attention to detail is fantastic.
Fett's followed closely by the POTJ Sandtrooper and Emperor's Wrath Vader as the runner-ups.

Yep, and Darth Vader (Dagobah Spirit)!!!

1. 300th Boba Fett
2. The entire deluxe line (Luke and Leia tops)

4. Eeth Koth
5. Degobah Vader

300th edition Boba Fett, FX-7. Those are one of the best figs. I liked Amanaman also, but not as much as the first two.

Amanaman and Fx-7 rule, but the first time I saw the Emperor's Wrath Vader my jaw totally dropped!!!!
