It's a friggin' shame that Hasbro didn't make the 1995 figures like this. There's nothing on these that could not have been done back then, they just made bad aesthetic choices with the muscle-men figures.
I thought the same thing when I picked up the Han/Chewie and Droids packs, if these had been the figures in 1995, people would have really been going crazy for them (which happened anyways I guess, but it still would have been cool). I happened to find the Stormtrooper at TRU today, and that figure really is pretty nice. Low articulation and all that, but otherwise, it is a pretty sweet trooper. Still on the lookout for Boba Fett at some point, but I think I'll continue to try to pick up all the OT characters. Fun figures for $5.
