I've only bought about half of the figures, mostly the truly new ones, so:

Best: AT-AT Driver, Sun Fac

Worst: Bib (didn't we just get a crappy new one for OTC as well?)
You are never alone when there's a clone.

Best: AT-AT driver and Sun Fac

Worst: The Carkoon wave. Hasbro almost lost me for good with that set.

Best: Sun Fac! Maybe a lesser character, but a great, deatiled, articulated figure.

Worst: Hmm, if I exclude repacked figures, I'd say that Bib Fortuna could have benegitted buy some extra arm articulation.  I don't mind salt-shaker figures, but give me some upper body movement.

Also, as far as worst goes, I'd get rid of the Holo pack-ins and the stands and offer more play accesories.

Best: Articulation wise, the AT-AT Driver or the Utapau Clone.  Sheer coolness wise, Foul Moudama.

Worst: Bib.

Being a person who plays with my figs, I found Barada to be a waste of $6.63.  :P

I'll probably change this later.

Best: Boussh Leia, Carbonite Han (his articulation is lame, but his sculpting is good enough to make him one of my favorite Hans to look at, and with a little creativity he is playable)

Worst: Barada. A background flunky with reused POTF parts and bland articulation, no thanks.

And yes, I know no one anywhere agrees about Han ;) But his headsculpt's just so good! The rest of the sculpting's pretty nice, at that...

I don't see why everyone hates Bib, it's the best version of him yet. Hate on Barada instead, he actually deserves it. :P

Bib looks fantastic on the card as do all the TSC/OTC figs.  I'll chime back in a few years from now when/if I decide to open anything I have.

Personally I think the Snowtrooper deserves it more.

The Bests: (in order)

At-At Driver

Sun Fac

Utapau Clone Trooper

Commander Cody

General Veers


The Worsts: (in order)

The continuously ugly-head rearing of the "Mini-Grievous" line of figures, Chapter 6.  Would somebody please slap a sculptor at Hasbro over the head with something and let them know Grievous is perpetually 2 inches short, and looks absurd?

Availability - boo to retail planograms having so few pegs for star wars

Articulation - everything should have 14 points, very few exceptions

Another unarticulated snowie pushed on us again

Stop giving us a different Vader every 2 months

 :P
