Best Saga Figures

1. Jango Fett Kamino Escape (Love the holsters!)
2. Bespin Luke (Awesome articulation)
3. Anakin Hangar Duel (the wheel sucks though)
4. Yoda (I STILL don't have one of my own!!)
5. Luminara (coolest looking figure, bar none!)

Worst Saga Figures

1. C-3P0 (terrible sculpt. Episode 1 sculpt much better)
2. Boba Fett (why does he come with guns and a backpack???)
3. Saesee Tinn (POTJ cloaked much better!)
4. Plo Koon (POTJ cloaked much better!)
5. Orn Free Taa (Can you find a more minor character?)

Wishful Thinking (Figs I want to see)

1. CLOAKED Anakin (Black Cloak would look VERY cool!)
2. Cloaked Obi Wan (WITHOUT a stupid piece stuck to his head)
3. Clone Trooper: 4 Figure Troop Builder Set
4. The Jedi that got shot and killed by Jango (He looked cool!)
5. Luke from ROTJ (with articulation like Bespin Luke)
6. Anakin with GOLD Mechanical Arm!!
7. Jedi Child Padawn 4 Pack (Liam, Shaak Ti lookalike Child, Crockadile Looking kid, and The smart kid that answers Yoda's question)
8. Anakin in his Jedi Prayer Stance on Naboo
9. Jango helmetless and without armor (on Kamino)
10. The crazy alien dude that wanted to sell Obi Wan the "Death Sticks" in the Coruscant Bar

Thoughts? Ideas? Criticisms? Do you think I am insane? Paper or plastic? Crunchy Taco or Soft Taco? Lemme know!!

Well, since I don't have many figures I'll just put the ones I like the most out of my collection by the way they look in the package.

6. Massiff (2 for 1!)
5. Anakin Hanger Duel (Looks good in the package but doesn't come with much)
4. Darth Vader (Awesome figure from a classic scene.)
3. Yoda (Yoda rules)
2. Qui-Gon Jinn (I just love the way this one looks)
1. Count Dooku (Just love that Lightsaber)

Actually, there was a scene that never made it into the movie where Boba puts on Jango's helmet and backpack and flies out of the arena, which kind of explains what happened to him during the battle.

In fact, most of the figures with unexplained accessories are mostly due to scenes cut from the movie.

That scene was better left out since it wasnt gonna make any sense, especially since the Arena was empty by the time he climbed down and grabbed his father's helmet.

Best - Shaak Ti (so far)

Worst - Id have to say any of the Jango, Obiwan or Anakin figures until i can be sure they have made the best sculpt. I am not going to fall for the multiple sculpt trick this time around and will wait until they do something fantastic. Until then I have to wait and think of them as the early, poor sculpts.

Wishful thinking - Elan Sleazebaggano, yes the death sticks guy from Ep2. And any of the cute girlies from the niteclub.
Wishful thinking from the classic trilogy would still be the tonnica sisters from SW. I can't believe that after all the talk about them years ago they were never produced.
But I am a huge fan of minor role figures and a major advocate against resculpts of major characters.

Best:
1. Kit Fisto (I just LOVE this figure)
2. Yoda (only makes me hope for the deluxe figure I heard about)
3. Luminara Unduli (seeing this figure made me want to read that Approaching Storm book)

Worst:
1. Peasent Anakin
2. Representitive Jar Jar (you remember that scene where Jar Jar shocked Zam Wessel with the elctropole? oh wait.....)
3. AnakinHD (only because I cant get that arm to stay on when I'm playin!)

Wishes:
1. Coleman Trebor (c'mon, do I need a reason to want a Jedi who can't deflect four blaster shots?)
2. Aayla Secura (I know shes comin, but I can't wait!!!)
3. Oppo Rancisis (I know he doesn' do much, but I'd like to see his serpent body standing straight up holding a lightsaber!)

Best:
I really dig the Nikto Jedi for some reason...
Luke.Bespin. Nuff Said.
Even though I don't have them, Yoda and HD Anakin look great.
Luminara for her awesome pose.
Kamino Jango
And of course, the bad ***$ of all bad ***$e$, Darth Vader(Bespin)

Worst.
JarJar. Duh
Even though I kinda like him just cause he's Sam Jackson, Geo Mace sucks worse than Battlefield Earth.
Geo Jango. Who ever heard of one pose wonder with articulation? Well we got one now..
Peasant Anakin just looks funny.

Wishes.
New Final Duel Luke Sywalker. This one is such a no brainer. The potf one sucks.
Liam Noseen(That kid yoda tells to put down the shades. Noseen I made up and is of course Neeson backwards.)
As cool as Yoda is, I want a Yoda figure where he hold his saber with two hands.
Anakin with mecho hand.
We NEED a Hanger Duel Obi-wan. Good articulation so that he can hold his saber with both hands.


.. and long live SOFT TACOS!
:crazed:

Best:

HD Anakin, Red Clonetrooper, Bespin Luke and Vader

Worst:

I have not seen any that are that bad, even OPD Anakin has some appeal to me.

Wishful thinking:

Anakin w/Jedi cloak, Jedi Luke, Wedge-new sculpt, and ALL THE FIGURES AVAILABLE AT RETAIL!!!

Best:
1) Count Dooku
2) Luminara
3) Anakin HD (I have no trouble with his arm)
4) Yoda
5) Kamino Jango

Worst:
OP Anakin is the only figure I really dislike

Wishlist:
1) Count Dooku with a cloth cape, a metal lightsaber hilt with removable blade that can clip onto his belt and Force Lightning.
2) New Jedi Luke with loads of articulation
3) Soft-goods Emperor Palpatine with a walking stick, Force Lighting and a throne. He'd need knee articulation to sit.
