I have, like, oodles of loose Chewbacca figures, and yet I almost bought another one today - the OTC Chewie. I was going to get it for the card, not the figure. No other packaging in the modern line has made me do that before!
I'm not looking to get a complete set of the OTC to keep on the card, only a select few that I think are really, really cool. That got me to wondering what everyone's favorite OTC cardbacks are. My top 5 would have to be:
1. C-3PO. I just love that krayt dragon (or whatever it's supposed to be) skeleton behind him. It's such an iconic image, and one of my earliest memories of seeing A New Hope when I was seven.
2. Tusken Raider. Again, an iconic figure with an iconic background image. The banthas always fascinated me, and as a kid I wanted to see more of them (and still do).
3. Jawas. More of the same. Don't have this one yet, but plan to, soon.
4. Slave Leia. I don't have this one yet, either, but to have our girl Leia posed in front of a screen-image Jabba is just about perfect.
5. R2-D2. Not the Dagobah version. R2 looks like he's wheeling down the corridor of the Tantive IV , just like in the film. This one MUST be kept in the package! (LOL)
Honorable mentions go to the Stormtrooper, the Scout Trooper, and the entire Dagobah wave (Luke, Ben, R2, and Yoda).
What do you think?
