    What do you think of the VOTC line?

    As of today, the final wave of VOTC figures has hit stores with the 4 ROTJ figures. The VOTC line has been out for over a month, with many figures still hard to find in most areas, but there definitely is no current shortage of some VOTC figures such as Han Solo & Ben Kenobi. Whether you factor the price into the equation or not, what is your take on this line, is it the best thing since sliced bread or just moldy? Vote now and voice your opinion.

    I voted Fantastic. The Threepio figure may be crappy, but that's my only complaint. It's great to see the O.G. cards on the shelves again, and I love the fact that it's only 12 figures.

    It makes me feel like I have a complete collection (well, it will when I get the ROTJ ones) without having to spend a gazillion dollars on rehashed figures.

    I love the VOTC

    I'd say this line is good, but not good enough reignite my interests in the modern lines. The figures look great (I'm always a sucker for cloth cape and accessories). I love the cards (I haven't said that about any of Hasbro's stuff before). But the prices I heard about are a bit too high in most cases. So for the time being I'll just look.

    What I dislike is the name, "vintage?" Give me a break. This is the dumbest thing since Greedo shot first.

    At first I was not planning to get any of the OTC line including VOTC, until I saw these. I could not resist getting them, especially since there are only 12. Its pretty easy to collect them knowing they won't keep coming out with new ones to drain your wallet.

    If they make any more past the original 12 planned, I think it will make these less "special" and I won't be interested. I like the numbers: 12 figures like the original 12 (even though they are not the same characters) and 4 from each movie on original type card backs. Cool!

    Yes, I know they're packed in star cases, but I hate the $10 price for what we get. The figures are too flimsy for my taste, yet they do look pretty good. I would have loved getting repro-ed vintage figures instead.

    There ok.. they couldve done a little better job on some of the faces (Leia). But the packaging is great.

    I voted fantastic!

    I have the first eight, and they are all just amazing.
    (Even Threepio has grown on me. . . )
    The ball jointed heads are just too cool for words.

    Can't wait for the ROTJ toys to hit LA.

    As someone else said, it's sure fun to Collect All Twelve again. . .

    Matt, with the ROTJ DVD coming out tomorrow with that Hayden spirit, I felt I had to say something. Plus, I had an idea yesterday about everybody doing this Ghostbusters-style thing with a different character as their avatar, and it dawned on me today that Haydenbusters could be done. Then I couldn't decide on white or black for the background, so I kept switching back and forth for the first 30 minutes or so.

    Re: What do you think of the VOTC line?

    Well, I said the whole line is fantastic because they really got me back into buying packaged figures again. The Yoda, Han, Darth and Lando are great figures, but the Leia and Luke really stink. Still the packaging is really why we buy them, and that's what get's my attention. I do wish they had the right packaging with the right film. 3PO, Chewbacca, Boba, Stormie, and Darth should have had a SW logo, while R2 should have been Empire. They could have put ESB or Jedi figs in vintage style packages. As you can see this will open up a new door for variations or repackaging later down the road. Anyways some of the figs are actually improvements too like Han, R2 and Chewie.
