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.

Actually Jesse, the Holo Yoda was based on the Younglings 2 pack sculpt.

Did anyone else feel that those stupid battle arena sets were the ROTS' worst? Talk about clearance for ever -man, they suck! One of the few things from day one that I didn't buy for ROTS :(. Annakin's fist looks like he's saying" Yo, Adrian.." or something ::)

(Sorry, I didn't read through the whole thread to see if anyone else mentioned it already..figuring someone had to have because, man I hated seeing those take up shelf space)

Well I'll be damned.  Thanks for clearing that up for me Spuffy, I looked at it passingly when I got it from a friend and just hung it up.  I thought it was the spinning Yoda figure...  They look surprisingly similar.

Hmmm, now I want to open it...  but that would F up my ROTS exclusives wall.  Damn now I want another one.

My vote for the very worst was the deluxe Kenobi vs the Battle Droid.  Egads the horror! 

I have to many best to liste really.

That red Palpatine was definitely the big let down for me, it must just be too much to ask for Hasbro to make a decent Palpatine or Emperor figure. 

Those spin attack figures suck as a collector, but the kids like making the figures fling around the room, so in essence they did what they were designed to do.

The red palpy needs a big do-over...  good articulation would be nice, and a couple headsculpts no doubt.
