LOL, good topic.  

I would take toyfare vader with me.  Unleashed Slave Leia was a close second. ;)

If it must be a Saga figure, then the Tusken Raider (Ambush), even though I don't own one (yet).

Today, I would choose my loose Tyranus – he looks so great sitting on my desk. But last week, when I was dusting my figures, it would have been TC-14. Two weeks ago it was my carded Holo Sidious. You see what I’m saying?

Actually Barfly, this is a bloody annoying topic. How the hell can I pick just ONE item? My fav changes by the second! Arghhh! R2-B1..no!..Silver R2…no wait…Obi Cold Weather Gear…no, Dexter, no, Sio Bibble, no, Jar-Jar..hang on, that last one actually IS crap, 300th Boba Fett, Graxol Kelvyyn, Bacta Tank Luke, R2-Q5, EW Vader, Aayla. Damn. Nope, don’t know.

It’s Tyranus. For today anyway :) .

I'm with Rob here.  This is just too tough to decide, and really changes quite a lot for me.  I always find the newest OT figure (especially if it's a background character) that I get my mitts on to be my favorite figure of the moment, but I suppose if I absolutely HAD to choose one, and only one, it might be the 300th Boba Fett.  Followed closely by the Vintage Fett (nostalgia), RH Vader, Commtech R2 & Stormie, and many, many others!

But if I was actually stranded on an island, I'd probably go with the Commtech R2-D2, since he seems like he'd be a nice, friendly, supportive, good listening kind of pal that I'd like to have around.  Kinda like that volleyball in the Tom Hanks Castaway movie a couple years ago, ya' know?

Yep, tough choices here. I would have to say I would keep my DT Luke. It took me along time to get one.

If it had to be only one item, Id take something that represented as much Star Wars as possible, my Star Wars Chronicles book

Ugh...this topic makes me sick!! :o

Anyway, I'd have to go with the SAGA Bespin Escape Chewbacca.  

I remember as a kid, losing my Chewie figure and it was depressing.  My parents and I looked everywhere for one in 1985 and couldn't find one anywhere.  Too bad they didn't have the internet back then.  It just didn't seem right having Luke and Han attack an Imperial Garrison w/out Chewie along for the fun.  Guess this was a sign of things to come as he dies in VECTOR PRIME. :(
