I've been going through my figures/displays lately, and have been taking a closer look (again) at the VOTC figures. I was curious to see some of your opinions now of this lineup. I'll always remember the excitement here on the forums when we first got the announcements and pics of these waves. This line, despite a few less than spectacular figures, is really one of my favorite things in my entire collection. Sure, we get this quality in the basic figure line more often now, but the combo of the classic characters, vintage cardbacks, and (at the time) a step up in sculpt, articulation, etc. just made this a great lineup.
Looking at the lineup now, have any of them improved in your eyes? Do you like some of them less? How many of this initial lineup of 12 do you consider "definitive" versions of the characters?
Personally, the following figures have always been pretty close to perfect to me - and are still some of my favorites:
Han Solo (probably my all-time favorite figure)
Chewbacca (ditto, a close second)
Boba Fett (glad to see this re-released now)
Stormtrooper (same here, and other recent versions have been nice too)
Princess Leia (maybe ball jointed elbows would improve it a bit, but not a bad figure - wouldn't mind seeing it re-released)
Some of the other figures are still great, but maybe a quirk or two away from "definitive". Yoda fits in this category, as well as R2-D2 (although a repaint of R4-G9 would probably be even better). Lando also fits in here. He doesn't seem to be a real popular figure overall with collectors necessarily, but aside from some ball joint elbows (or maybe a removable cape), I'm pretty happy with him. I've also warmed a bit on the Tatooine Luke figure. I'm still not sure if I like the soft goods on it, but it isn't a bad figure overall. Still not the "end all, be all" Tatooine Luke in my eyes, but I do like it more than I initially did. The Vader is a nice figure as well, but has since been improved upon (Evolutions, TAC) to the point where its pretty much perfect now. Obi-Wan isn't a horrible figure to me, but could really be improved on (ball joints, cloak). C-3PO is last place in the bunch, but we've gotten better ones since then so I can appreciate the deco a little more. I more consider the Endor throne version the "definitive" 3PO for me. Anyways, that got a little wordier than I intended, but how do you feel about the VOTC at this point?
