If I like something, I may always get it depending on the price. I like Pax-what's-his-face even though he was an inaccurate version of the Episode 1 character, him being a recolored super articulated Greedo was cool with me, because I liked that Greedo mold. I'd give most stormtroopers a shot, too, if they used a good mold.
Actually, I might buy something repainted I know I like already over something new, simply because the Star Wars line is still hit/miss with me.
I dislike all the Jedi Starfighters. To be fair, I've never held a Clone Wars version in my hands (or Clone Wars modified Anakin model). But the movie AOTC and ROTS models do nothing for me. I dislike the assymterical astromech droids, and another reason could be because that the OT had real uniformed pilots and the Jedi jump in their rides robes and all, with a metal head band on. Somehow I doubt ANH would have the same effect if Luke stayed in his Tatooine duds and donned a metal halo. But that's really off topic.
I rarely buy vehicles anyway, most of the ones I've gotten over the past few years were used and I prefer ground based items anyway. I was tempted to get the previous blue-greay CLONE WARS Trade Federation AAT before they all disappear. But in that case, it clashes with my 30th anniversary one...and the vehicle is just okay, not great.
