At least she can hold the weapons that are included in the package!

She can also hold a pack of wild dogs with a single glance.

In my case, I order full cartons and sell the extras or open the army builders.  Problem is, nobody wants my piece of **** Hoth Vader leftovers.  Can't say that I blame them.

Hrmmm...

That is a nice list.  Where is the RFT when you need it! :P

Hey, I actually want a 500th/Hoth/Tatooine Vader. A little loving customizing and he could be awesome; he's got great sculpt and pretty decent articulation. Really, it strikes me that all he needs is some tacky stuff or clear rubber bands or something to hold his lightsaber; it worked well enough with POTF2 Lando's cape and POTF2 removeable helmet Vader's helmet. For that matter, I'd use it on this Vader's helmet too; place it right and it'll come off fine.

As for my purchasing habits when this comes out... VTSC comes first in my book, but I'll be seeking greatest hits Chewie (for opening...), TSC R5-D4 (I love the VOTC R2 sculpt; this figure looks like a heavenly R5-D4), and hopefully Luke. I might just buy Vader, as well- I'll have to see. And if I see one of those Sandtroopers I'm totally nabbing him!

A VOTC Han head stuck on a peg plus a new paintjob sounds like a good way to mess up Cantina Han, really... well, the paintjob looks nicer actually, I never fancied his cream shirt, but I have no desire to own this figure unless I find him extra cheap somewhere.

Good point.  I was considering adding him to my short list before, but he does look decent face down dead on the floor with some VOTC stormies hovering over him, firing on POTJ rebel fleet troopers.  I can't include the POTJ RFT, he's not that bad.

So, without further ado, the POTF2 Rebel Fleet Trooper in all it's suckiness:

You skipped the very best figure!



Although, there's some value in the headsculpt I guess, for customizing if nothing else. It's not great, but it's not a horror if it's on a body that in some small way even sort of resembles a relative of Mark Hamill.

But this guy is nothing in comparison to what I consider the two worst figures ever made (although Luke at least has customizing value, to a degree):








And that's not even to mention that fireball-launching grinning surf-dude Mace Windu...

-Bent ankles
-Caved in Chest Sculpt
-Pre-posed, unarticulated arms
-peewee pee-shooter
-non-removable helmet
-non-functioning pistol holster
-stupid face sculpt (arguable though, it is, at least, neutral)
-articulation style on the legs the company they STOLE it from had already abandoned due to how ****** it is designed
-barely removable vest (for once they use stiff plastic on an accessory they never should have)
-magical hovering holster that isn't sculpted to look attached to the belt

I think you can include the POTJ Fleet Trooper, but that's my point of view of course...  He looks better, but he's a piece of **** action figure at the end of the day IMO.

That said, the POTF2 RFT is easily among the worst figures in the modern line overall, and when you include the original POTF2 and whatnot, that's no small acheivement for a figure released a bit later than 1995 to make the all-time worst list.  It was attrocious even for a time when "not great" was passable.

I'd say he's even in the top 3 worst of all time...  Vintage to now.  That POTF2 Fleet Trooper sucks a nut, and quite hard.  POTJ RFT sucks though, and as you all know the Rebel Fleet Trooper is doomed to sucking...  It's his lot in life. 

Though...  That Kubrick Fleet Trooper looks kind of cool. :)

All great contenders for the all time worst list. However, my vote goes to the Bespin guard pack-in with the Carbon Freeze chamber.

I do not know.  But there are a lof of weird and ugly looking aliens in Tatooine (and the Tatooine wave) but no of them comes close to Monkey Leia's mug.
