    Thumbs up

    Rarity all comes down to supply.

    They are not all that hard to get as far as I can see - just expensive.
    All jed's points are valid.
    1) It always depends on what you're looking for.
    2) I personally do not look for too many variants. Small head Han or brown hair Lukes are legitimate differences. Gray/tan arm Klaatu or open/closed breath hole Tusken isn't. Just my opinion.
    3) Yup. Simple (simple? ) economics.
    4) That's my point. I'm not interested in paying over $300 for a SW figure, so my collection will remain "incomplete" for some figs.

    Question A non sequitur?

    Well, I don't know if an AT-AT is the rarest figure (please check the appropriate thread titles), but I'd say sure, go for it.

    There're a few figures that showed up in the photos on the card backs that I'm not sure were ever actually released that way:
    Red cloak Bib Fortuna
    Black cloak Squid Head
    Black outlined boots Hoth Han

    So these might be kinda like missle-firing Fett, as protoypes.

    The rarest production figures, hmmmm....

    If you are going to state "production figure", then the Rocket Fett cannot be mentioned in the conversation. Neither can salesman samples, or toy fair displays. You must also think about foreign releases in the list. Even though, they were not released on US soil, they were still produced. I would consider the rarest production figures in this order:

    Standard 3 3/4" (Carded or Loose)

    Uzay Headman
    DT Ben Kenobi
    DT Darth Vader
    and Vlix


    Variation 3 3/4" (Carded or Loose)

    Black Cape Squid Head
    Vinyl Cape Jawa
    Blue Snaggletooth


    12" Figures
    Lili Ledy figures (Loose or Boxed)
    Boba Fett in ESB box


    This is all that I can think of for figures that a real challenge to find. The vinyl cape jawa can be found, but you also have to consider the number of fakes that are on the market. I am quite sure there were a few left out. Please comment as needed.

    Ahh, the great Rocket Firing Fett debate! 1) Fett's rocket firing missile launcher was never released because of the child who choked to death on a rocket-firing Battlestar Gallactica toy. 2) the info given by ToyFare about parents shooting Fett's missile into their kids' mouths so they could sue Kenner was a complete rumor and just the kind of shoddy, sloppy reporting I have come to expect from ToyFare. 2) the rocket-firing feature was pulled at the prototype stage, thus no saleman samples or production figures exist. Period.

    If you have or know someone who claims to have a rocket-firing Fett then it is a fake. Plain and simple. If you know someone who claims to have bought one from the store then they are a liar. Plain and simple.

    I wouldn't really consider Uzay figures to be legitimate SW figures. They were cheap knock-offs that were never authorized by Lucasfilm. Thus, IMO, they don't count as part of the Star Wars line.

Lewis

    Geez, bb, can you be any more ambiguous in your opinion? I mean, take a stand or something! By the way, 3 comes after 2, not another 2.

    What about the Canadian "General Veers" AT-AT Commander figure? Would that fall under the Uzay category?
