Favorite:  Electronic Vader - everything they could do right back then, they did with this one.

Worst:  Padme-White battle Costume (poorly sewn costume, red-rimmed eyes and a hardened hairball for hair)

Fav: Electronic 12" Jango Fett (Better than the "Ultimate")

Least: 12" Saga Mace Windu (His eye paint was HORRIBLE)

I don't own the "Ultimate" version of Jango Fett, but I really do like the "Electronic" version (which I do have).  This would have been mine favorite, but IG-88 is just a monster at 13" and the detail on him (IG-88) is unbelievable.

Just curious, but why didn't you like 4-LOM?  I think it's a great-looking figure, and the detail was done nicely.

Poor articulation, and he can't hold his rifle well.  It was a real problem with the bounty hunters.

Maybe that's why I don't open up my figures then.   ;)

Here in Austin, almost all 12" figs. clearance.  It's not always easy to find nice boxes.  So, it's a dilemma of nice boxes for $20, or poor boxes for about $10.  I go for the openers.  I like the 12" articulation far better than the small figures.

Just curious to know what is your favorite and worst 12" figure.

My favorite = POTJ IG-88
My worst = Action Collection plastic & fuzzy Chewies

I have to agree on those figures. IG-88 is a very nice figure & as soon as I saw it, it was mine.
Now that plastic Chewbacca is just lame. The fuzzy Chewbacca is just goofy looking. Just like an over sized Ewok.  ;D

My vintage Boba Fett complete with box is my best overall vintage untill I get a vinty IG-88.  ;)

I'd like to know what they were thinking when they designed these Chewbacca figures.   ???
