Favorite Version/Look of the Characters?
« on: August 28, 2006, 02:22 PM »
Out of the characters in the OT - I guess the main characters mostly - what are your favorite "looks" (or clothing/outfit) of each of the characters?  Do you prefer one over the other?  Do you like the "classic" looks how they originally appeared in Star Wars/ANH, or do you like some of the later versions better?  I guess I'm thinking more of the movie appearances, not necessarily what action figure you like the best.  Just a few examples - feel free to add any others:

Luke Skywalker
Tatooine/Farm Boy
Stormtrooper Disguise
Yavin Ceremony
X-Wing Pilot
Hoth
Hoth Snowspeeder
Bespin
Dagobah
Endor (Poncho)
Jedi Knight

Han Solo
ANH/Cantina
Stormtrooper Disguise
Yavin Ceremony (basically the same as Cantina)
Hoth
Bespin
Carbonite (if you want to count this version)
Endor

Princess Leia Organa
White Gown/ANH
Yavin Ceremony
Hoth
Bespin
Boussh Disguise
Jabba's Slave
General (Endor/ROTJ)
Endor (Poncho)
Ewok Village

Lando Calrissian
Bespin
Smuggler's Gear
Skiff Disguise
General

Darth Vader - just minor differences, but maybe some have preference
Star Wars/A New Hope
The Empire Strikes Back
Return of the Jedi
Anakin/Vader without Helmet

And, even though they are different "troops", which design do you like the best?

Stormtrooper
Sandtrooper
TIE Pilot
AT-AT Driver
Snowtrooper
Biker Scout

Others (Chewie, R2, 3PO, Yoda) stay pretty much the same throughout the movies, although there are some small differences.  What looks do you like the best?  I pretty much like all of the looks in the OT, and the SW/ANH are often the "iconic" versions, but I have always sort of liked the Bespin outfits.  Luke and Han in particular, and Leia as well.  Of course, my favorite two action figures (that I had) as a kid were the Endor Han and Jedi Luke.  They're all good, but I was just curious what some of your favorites were.

Ah...so I did.  :)  I've made the correction - sorry about that.  Must be those years of my wife saying "you don't need an action figure of her in that outfit" :P.

What a great topic Brian! 

Here are my choices:

Luke Skywalker
1st - Jedi Knight
2nd - X-Wing Pilot

Han Solo
1st - ANH/Cantina
2nd - Hoth

Princess Leia Organa
1st - White Gown/ANH
2nd - General

Lando Calrissian
1st - Bespin
2nd - General

Darth Vader - just minor differences, but maybe some have preference
Star Wars/A New Hope

And, even though they are different "troops", which design do you like the best?
Snowtrooper


I seem to usually prefer the first versions of each character, except for Luke, where I prefer him as the Jedi Knight.  As for Vader, I've never had a real preference as to which form he was in, but the ANH version with the red lenses is pretty cool.  Either way, I always remember him as we see him here:  8)
