I'm really surprised at some of the bests you listed, director.
Like Gree I thought was attrocious because of his myriad of inacuracies in paint and sculpt, and I thought Chewbacca was so-so at best... I think the VOTC could've been repacked with a new head and would have gone over better overall. Not to say I can find one, but for a while he pegwarmed till the movie really took off. Same sorta applied to Tarrful I felt, in that there was a lack of effort on hasbro's part with him.
The exclusives I wasn't real into either, I was let down by price mostly but also some were just seemingly dull. The TRU Emperor for instance, and Yoda was meh. I think a better sculpt could have been used to make a holographic Yoda, like the Younglings Yoda figure maybe, since he was sitting and all.
And for your worst you listed Mas Ameda... Dull as he may be I thought he was one of the best of the year really, at least for non-Jedi... I thought Hasbro went even a little nuts articulating him, which is cool but weird for a boring figure. I was very happy with that one. The tongue is cool too, even if it's not from the film's final cut.
