Definately the EP 3 Sidious with the removeable hood.

 

Then there is the Qui Gon with the mishapen Re-Breather.

 

Jar Jar, Jar Jar, Jar Jar

The holo Yoda isn't all that. Neither was the Michael Jackson Yoda.

Resurrect an old thread rather than start a new one.

 

My picks.

 

Vintage Kenner line:

 

1. Darth Vader - it's hard to believe they kept reissuing the 1978 version over and over again, cheap vinyl cape, embedded lightsaber and all. (though Kenner's puny ESB and ROTJ light saber accessories stank quite franky, too.)

 

2. Luke Skywalker - In Star Wars he hold a light saber for 2 scenes, yet the only NEW HOPE version of Luke Kenner made had the embedded in arm light saber. His other hand was next to useless, so how was he supposed to run around the Death Star shooting stormtroopers?

 

3. Stormtrooper - Non-movable head and the fact their torsos yellow if you look at them wrong.

 

4. R2-D2 - was a paper sticker really the best they could do then? REALLY?

 

5. Ben Kenobi - much the same reasons as Darth/Luke

 

POTF 2:

 

1. ASP droid - doesn't look like it belonged in the Star Wars universe to begin with, and the figure is an undetailed lump.

 

2. Imperial Royal Guard - salt shaker with arms. Sure it looked better standing around than the vintage ones...but as a toy it was lacking, and the hollow body felt cheap. (thankfully 2 better version have been made since)

 

3. Rebel Fleet Trooper - years of waiting for this figure and they made a steroid freakazoid. (thankfully updated)

 

4. Spirit of Obi Won (mail in) - Yay! All those potato chips get you a non-poseable lump. Obi DID move when he appeared as a spirit.

 

5. Bib Fortuna - I still say vintage Kenner Bib is the best, as least as a toy. The POTF had a non removable robe, but it was split for some reason. Just to mock every fan by showing the standard articulation underneath.

 

Episode 1:

 

1. Boss Nass: midget version

 

2. Darth Maul tatooine, an example of a plastic robed figure that can't do much.

 

POTJ:

 

1. Bespin Guard: the one that came with carbon freezer playset, a left over POTF2 release, I guess. Good thing a better version came out.

 

2. Chewbacca (dejarik champion) - Preposed bent arms because heaven forbid they put some elbow joints in!

 

 

Episode 2 (Star Wars Saga Collection):

 

1. Padme Amidala: Arena Escape

 

2. Mace Windu: Geonosian rescue

 

3. Nikto Jedi Knight: great looking, poor playing figure...no leg joints. Probably not the worst, but I was so disappointed that my interest in the figure declined after him.

I'm really surprised at what some consider a bad figure. Royal Guard, Jar Jar, Ep 1 Battle Droid, Super Battle Droid? Doesn't make sense to me.

 

The Monkey Face Leia was and forever will be a nightmare in SW collector history.

 

The faulty battle droid that was like having a "collapse" action featrue without the feature was pretty bad (how did it make it into the great ROTS line?).

 

The deluxe Sidious is ugly and useless (I'm still wondering why they thought that crap was deluxe.)
