Anyone else into the old 12" Kenner/Hasbro dolls?

I have the electronic Darth Vader that I love! You can arrange his soft goods stuff to look like A New Hope Darth or ESB/ROTJ Darth, he's got a 2 piece, removable helmet with a really good Shaw likeness underneath, and sound effects that sound just like the movie!
The 12" scale Yoda might be one of the best Yoda likenesses available in plastic.
I also like the real fur on the 12" Chewbacca.
The best part is these guys are relatively cheep (if you're like me and can't afford a Hot Toys doll). Yeah, yeah, the Luke and Han likenesses are not exactly spot-on, but they're passable. I own the above three figures plus slave Leia and Darth Maul. I have an itch to hit up ebay and get a couple more....

I'd personally like to get another 12-inch ANH Han Solo, and I love the Palpatine from that line. I even have the Sideshow version, and I think that Kenner one holds up quite well in comparison. Another one I'd like to have back is the Episode I Obi-Wan. I always thought that one was very nice, along with Darth Maul. Geeze yojoe...you're gonna talk me right into getting back into this line. (lol)

I wonder how these new 5 poa 12" compare to the vinage figs? The Clone Trooper may have more articulation than the vintage Stormtrooper, lol; although, Vader appears to be the same height.

That was an easy time to be suckered into being a completist. It was that time in the 90s JUST before Episode I and the merchandising onslaught had not quite begun yet.
If you're talking about those hunks of stiff-as-a-board plastic figures that Hasbro likes to do now, I'm guessing they don't hold up too well...

I still want to hunt down a nice crispy white vintage stormtrooper and the newer clone trooper and put them on my bookshelf together.
