View Full Version : Okay, I want to start a POTJ collection... what are some of the BEST figures?

05-15-2002, 03:29 PM
I just got my R2-Q5 today, and I have to say that it's one of the coolest figures I've ever seen. Ever. I mean, an EVIL Astromech Droid? Wow.

I also got FX-7, and he's a beautiful piece of work... 39 points of articulation, great detail... amazin. I'm getting R4-M9 soon, and from what I've seen he looks outrageously cool too.

I want to start a POTJ Collection, but I'm not sure which figures are particularly well-made/cool... can someone give me some suggestions?

How's Dejarik Chewie? Tatooine Jar Jar? Emperor's Wrath Vader? Fode & Beed? Did I miss any really good ones?

Plo Koon has really great detail to him.

You must have a Plo and Eath! Chewie is pretty cool, if you put him up to his table their isn't much use of him outside of that. Luke bacta tank is sweet as is Leia with gun. The only other must haves I would say are K3-po and Amanaman....

Bo Shek
Ellors Madak (Duros)
& Sandtrooper are all personal favorites of mine.

05-15-2002, 08:45 PM
Anyone know where I can get a BoShek, the Old Obi-Wan, Jedi Trainer Obi-Wan, Mechanic Chewie, EW Vader, and R2-Q5 reasonable price? I can't find them anywhere!

What's so great about K-3P0? He looks like a pretty bland, boring figure to me...

05-16-2002, 07:51 AM
well browndroid my darth maul is fine so you must have got a bad one
best figs in my opinion:

Boba Fett 300th figure
Tessek (although he's a huge pegwarmer in the US he's amazing)
Ellors Madak
Darth Maul shirtless

didn't get Vader Dagobah which is pretty cool I think

well I forgot to mention that this thread might help you http://www.sirstevesguide.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=6243

Mine are:

FX-7 (Definitely)
R3-T7 (Preview fig on POTJ Card)
Boba Fett 300th
Imperial Officer
Bacta Tank Luke
Scout Trooper (Clean & Dirty)
Han Solo (Bespin Capture)
Darth Vader - Dagobah Spirit (I'm told is very nice)

Personally, I like more of the POTF2 figures than POTJ figures...mainly because I collect OT only.

I suggest you take a look in the archives on this site. there you will see the collection from carded/ uncarded views. This will give you a relatively good idea as to the sculpts. as far as articulation you'll just have to keep asking.

I just got Plo Koon and Saesee Tiin today....both great figures....

and highly recommended!!!

it's a pity that I discovered the POTJ line so late in the game....some really great stuff.....

I really like figures that are rather obscure. For collectability reasons, you probably won't see a resculpt of a lot of the line so if you want someone like BoShek, Duros, or some of the more obscure droids, better pick them up now!

Even so, my personal favorite from the line has to be X-Wing Luke. He has a great sculpt, likeness, and the removable helmet is really sweet. And he wasn't impossible to find!! A lot of folks don't agree with me on this but I think he's cool. The new Sandtrooper comes in second.

I loved Lando with cloth cape. Major, major improvement there. 300th Boba Fett is killer. I think you need a biker scout and a sandtrooper too. I love Imperials though.
One I really liked that no one else seems to care for? Obi Wan cold weather gear. I know, EU and all, but really well made and cool to look at.
I hated the 25th anniversary jobs, and the only deluxe figure I liked was Luke in Bacta. The rest are flimsy or have crap weapons or are flimsy AND have crap weapons (sorry, that's my disappointment with Amanaman loose talking).
I too liked the Xwing Luke. There were a lot of figures in POTJ that were for collectors only. They really got a lot done with it in terms of filling in blanks (Tessek and Zutton) and resculping some you may have missed (Old Ben). Great line. Awesome vehicles with figures, too.

i would suggest plo koon
