A galaxy far, far away....
The only version of Nien Numb that's not pictured above is the 1997 POTF2 version:

This '97 version isn't that great; it's got an "action oriented" pose & a bland look; no detail in the sculpt re: the jacket either.

My order of preference, taking into account each version:

TFA - 2016
Vintage - 1983
TVC - 2012
POTF2 - 1997

I agree, weirdly the VOTC was a misfire, and usually they were definitive. I was pleased that TFA Nunb is close enough for me to consider the costume an OT era costume. Looks almost exactly the same.

Agreed. It's cool that the character looked so similar to the OT version that the TFA figure could easily be in a ROTJ toy display without anyone realizing the difference.

Conversely, I actually displayed the vintage figure with my Force Awakens figures for awhile.

Disagree on the POTF2 Nien Nunb. The worst thing is he is a little POTF2 bulky. The pose is late-POTF2, meaning fairly neutral.
