5.  Evolutions 327th Star Corps Felucia grunt


I disagree. With the pauldron one, they helmet leaves the chin exposed and that is bad.

I agree on The SA # 41, and the VOTC Scout, but I dunno, about the Stromtroppers as I do not have any. I like the Comtech/Imperial forces one, as the have the "death throws" and "Guard at the ready" poses I need for my Bespin set up.

Tilt the head back (chin up), place the helmet under the chin and slip it over his head chin first.   That is, while the helmet is on, the chin is pointed upwards and hidden by the helmet.

Problem solved, none of the chins show on my 12 grunts.

I'll play along.

1 - VOTC Stormtrooper/SAGA2 Sandtrooper
2 - ROTS #41 Clone (including paint variants of it)
3 - VSTC Biker Scout
4 - ROTS Heavy Gunner Wookiee
5 - SAGA2 AT-AT Driver
6 - SAGA2 Sun Fac
7 - AOTC Evolutions Clonetrooper w/ removable helmet/pilot helmet
8 - OTC Tie Pilot
9 - Evolutions Sandtrooper
10 - ROTS Battle Droid
 
I am hoping the upcoming Death Star Gunner will make the top 5 for me, I am thinking it will.  And the new Endor Rebel looks very promising.

Cut him some slack, I'm sure after he painted his 20th scout into Kashyyyk deco, he was sick of it enough to promote 2 other figures higher on the list.

That is pretty silly and probably a first. 

In that case then I think the best army builder ever is the SA Gungan warrior that might get made sometime in the next 12 years. ::)

I'd agree on waiting till it's in-hand.  I mean the sculpt wasn't looking fabulous from pictures so I'm not willing to bump that guy yet. ;)

Poseable yes, but not super poseable by ANY means so I don't think he'd make my top 5...  The Wookiee only does because he's near super poseable and BULKY.  The fact he came with a lot of gear didn't hurt either really.  Otherwise I need SA for troopers to make the grade.

Doesn't hurt if they're from a GOOD movie too. :)

41 Trooper all the way.

He actually pegwarmed for a while, about 30 of them sitting on the pegs with Mustafar Sentries, Obis, and Neimoidians.

That was when we had figures clogging the pegs and a whole aisle for SW,

Then, as the section shrunk, 5-10 of them still sat there. Not lying, they just sat there. Too bad I couldn't find that many Battle Droids... :(

1: 41 Trooper
2: Utapau Clone
3. VOTC Stormtrooper
4. VTSC Scout Trooper
5. ATTE Gunner
6. Value Pack Clones
7. Lushros Dofine
8. ATRT Driver
9. Clone 3 Packs
10. ARC Troopers (Non animated)
-Clones-

Heh heh, thanks Dressel.  I think that also I've started to want the helmet on the VSTC Scout to be a bit larger, and because of that I've started to like the VOTC Stormtrooper and #41 Clone a bit more.  I guess somewhere between  April 8 and July 1st, being exposed to the figure more (including all the repaints) made the "newness" of the figure wear off some.

And besides we're all entitled to have our favorite figures change from time to time.

Setting cost aside, I'm going to guess that the upcoming Snowtrooper is going to give the Bikerscout a run for it's money.
