View Full Version : Is this line...

Is this figure line worth collecting, this is probably the only series in Star Wars which I don't have a single figure. Could some tell me some of the really good ones and why they are good.

I don't have many but here's what I would buy if (from ones I have/can describe) I were you:
Sandtrooper - great sculp, cool weathering, good articulation (not as good as CT stormie though), cool accesories (binocular)
Chewbacca mechanic - great sculp, proper height
Battle Droid Security - cool pose, good painting
Boba Fett 300th Edition - GREAT likeness, good articulation, cool pose
EU figs/Qui-Gon, Darth Maul, Obi-wan - except cold wheater obi (don't have that one) - just look cool

And DARTH VADER (DAGOBAH SPIRIT)
Don't forget Darth Vader (Dagobah Spirit)
Oh, and did I mention, Darth Vader (Dagobah Spirit)
Sorry, I got a little carried away.

Well, there are also a few never-before-made figures, such as:
But other cool ones are:
Han Bespin Capture
Some lesser ones:
It's better than most of the E1 line in quality, but maybe not as good as POTF2 in variety (obviously, since POTF2 started first).

Hell, most of the POTJ figs were above and beyond anything previously offered. There were som stinkers, but most were very much the best SW figs ever.
Luke w/ Bacta Chamber
Queen Theed Invasion
Emperor's Wrath Vader
Bespin Security Guard
90% of the line I like.
04-14-2002, 10:22 PM
And Darth Vader (Dagobah Spirit)!

IMO POTJ was the worst line in so far. The figures in the beginning were just horrible, but I will admit that it got better as it went along. This is what I would get and I'm basing my choices on if the figure was previously sculpted or if it is a really good sculpt:
Queen Amidala Royal Decoy
Duros (Ellors Madak)
Bespin Sec. Guard
Han Solo (Bespin Capture)
Qui-Gon Jedi Armor
OB1 Jedi Armor
OB1 Cold Weather Gear
Boba Fett 300 (wouldn't that be a cool name for a NASCAR race?)
Security Battle Droid
The first nine are the last of the line and probably the hardest to find. A bunch of the earlier ones will also be harder to find, but hunt around. KB may have some of them on clearance.

If you were to only buy one figure from the POTJ line, then you must pick up a FX-7. Best POTJ figure hands down!

Did I mention FX-7:)Check this photo out!
04-28-2002, 06:31 PM
i'd like to get me an fx-7 one day.
stupid hasbro and its stupid "lets not give canadians an fx-7 even though we gave them the luke bacta tank set"

Really the whole line was just wonderful. The first four sucked (Anakin mechanic, Maul rehash, Chocobi-Wan, R2 w/wheels)
But my personal fav:
Darth Vader (Emperor's Wrath) Just awesome looking. And the glowing skull is a nice touch.

I liked the line and yes there were some that wasn't very good. I always look at the line or the new line coming out and deside for myself, and buy what I like. I'm not one who has to have the whole line. I buy what I like because its my collection and I'm the only one I have to please. So,check it out and see for yourself. You are the one you are trying to please.

There were very few in the line that I didn't want....
some of my favorites are:
DV Emperor's Wrath
Mon Calimari Officer

Sell all your EP1 and buy POTJ instead. That's what I did and I have no regrets. If you really like your EP1 then at least buy the POTJ figs these guys listed on their posts.

It's hard to answer your question without knowing your taste . . . but here goes.
Everybody is right about FX-7. Hands down the best Star Wars Figure EVER!!! The execution on this guy is truly amazing. They not only went all out, they went well above and beyond that. There is nothing about this figure I would possible change. Nothing! He is totally perfect in every way. (Aside from his steadfast refusal to get a Canadian Work Visa . . .)
Other Real Stand Outs . . .
Ellors Madak (The Duro!) Great pose. Cool lustre on the jumpsuit.
Boshek. Dead on movie likeness. Awesome helmet.
R2-Q5 What poor Artoo would be if he secumbed to the Dark Side. . .
R4-M9 Very nifty. Like the other three, never before done.
Zutton. Ugly. Very Ugly. But Cool. Gotta love the Cantina Glass . . .
There are so many more I could name. Several of your other Forum members posted very good lists in the replies above mine. All are excellent lists. And would be great starting points to an amazing POTJ collection.

IMO, this line is by far the best Hasbro's done yet. My personal faves are:
Scout Trooper (clean)
Most of these (with the exception of the Stormies and Vader) are still easily found in my area. Good hunting...
