Thread: Which figures would you buy an updated version of?

    Which figures would you buy an updated version of?

    So as I contemplate buying the DX Vader (I already have the ANH version), I am trying to figure out which figures I would buy an updated version of. They would have to have been already made by SS and be a significant improvement. Is the DX Vader really worth it, if someone already has the ANH? I bought the Hot Toys Luke Bespin, as it was far superior to the SS version. So here is my list:

    1. Bespin Han
    2. ROTS Anakin
    3. Shocktrooper
    4. Farmboy Luke
    5. Stormtrooper

    Other than that, I would try to stay away from buying updates of figures I already have.

    Anyone have other thoughts or ideas?

    I don't really rate the human character figures so I'd only be interested in the Stormtrooper myself..., I think the updated Shocktrooper would merely be a paint job & fabric body suit but I'm open to that one too.

    This is an interesting topic, and it does come down to one's personal taste, so there really are no wrong answers... just fun debates. For me, I am looking at:

    ESB Bespin Han Solo
    ANH Luke Farmboy
    ANH Leia
    ROTS Anakin
    ANH Ceremonial Luke

    I am actually fine with all the rest... unless I am forgetting someone. It is really a redo of some of the human likenesses for me.

    I'd be in for a stormtrooper.

    Good topic....

    Shock Trooper (make it deluxe style)
    ROTS Anakin watch that paint this time!)
    Storm trooper (deluxe it out!)
    Tatooine Luke (again that paint!)
    Qui-Gon Jinn (over-shoulders hair pleas)

    ....and that's it. Unfortunately, what hurt a lot of the early figures was the paint apps...some of them ended up pretty bad....

    A fully re-tooled and screen accurate stormtrooper on par with SSC's latest deluxe clones is the grail. If all they did was re-do the old armour sculpt I'd pass, since IMO nothing has touched the old Marmit stormtroopers. It seems a stormtrooper re-release of some kind is almost inevitable...but if so they're keeping mighty quiet about it.

    Bespin Han is the big one for me. The figure has aged terribly.

    Bespin Han and the Stormtrooper seem to be the big 2 and I agree.

    Could also do with a new Mace Windu, really don't care for the likeness on the original.
