I have to say I really like Dagobah Vader. It was a cool idea, and I display it proudly on my computer monitor. Honorable mention goes to another Vader, the Vader - Emperor's Wrath. I still think that the POTJ line was the greatest to date, and a lot of thought went in to making the figures.
POTJ is where we really started to see Hasbro doing the work they should have been doing since 95. I agree that there are so many good ones to chose from, but I would have to say that both the Han Bespin Capture and the Bespin Guard are two of the best and both are very under rated. Both hold up very well to the superior scupts that we are getting today.
Totally agree with FX-7! Tessek is nicely done too but I'm not a fan of static plastic robes, so I'm hoping for a re-do with him at some point.
One of my faves is Sneak Preview Jango Fett. Awsome sculpt & paint - it owns the haphazard EVO one in that dept. Another would be Ben Kenobi.
This is definetly one of the best lines I have two sets. One in package and one out. And the reason it is probably the best is cause this is where the sculpts made a significant improvement. And they tied in EU, PT, and OT fairly well.
Chosing a favorite is tuff.
Basic: Bo Shek and FX-7
Deluxe: Luke and Bacta Tank
Vehicles: TIE Bomber
12": Luke 100th and Luke w/ Yoda.
Though the only thing I don't have from this Line is the Snowspeeder w/Luke and Dak. And need a second Masters of the Darkside 3 3/4. If anybody is willing to sell one
This line is my least favorite in SW history. We got a Tessek and an Amanaman but I always found the packaging to be bland, the figures to be loaded with versions I'd pass on and the overall delivery to be boring. The file cards were horrible too. Just my two cents.
Well, I'll agree on the packaging, but I think, for that time, that there were several good figures in the line. Ellors Madak, Tessek, Amanaman, Zutton, the Mon Cal Officer. I'm not very interested in articulation so that's really not an issue to me.
Loved this set,got all except the Han "Death Star" and one or two others from the last wave.POTJ had some good Queen figures,& a couple of droids.But at the time i'd have to say the Biker Scout was my fav.
That's a real tough one. Like many here, I think this could possibly be the best line since the vintage days. Sure, they lack the articulation of today's hyper-articulated figs, but I'd put this line up against the 30th Anniversary series ANY day! I definitely think this was the most collector focused line that Hasbro has EVER done. Being a cantina fan, Zutton, Ellors and BoShek all deserve honorable mention, but I'd have to say that Dagobah Vader was the true masterpiece of the POTJ run! Removable head and mask with Luke's face combined with almost perfect scale and subtle translucent plastic! This figure was a landmark release!
Im going with Amanaman because he was so hard to come by and you get the bonus of Salacious Crumb. My runner up is Ellors Madak but he is from the cantina scene. Im a little biased to cantina figures and Jabba the Hutt lackies.
Ig-88 in potj was pretty nice - by far the best sculpt of him so far (but based on the Ig-86 in CW and IG lancer in legacy they have to really re issue a new improved one) But I was happiest to see Porkins
