« on: March 26, 2010, 12:08 AM »
Okay, so the topic was raised as to what figures you would keep in your collection if limited to 100. Here's my list...it's actually easier for me 'cause I have no problem chucking Prequel stuff. If anything it would be harder to part with some of the EU figures I have sought for so long.

This will be be fun.  I'll have to think about it.  One question that jumps at me about your list - which version of some of those characters?  Which Han?  Which Jawa (could I pick just one?)?

That would take too much time for me to sit down and really think about.  I would have to say just about each main outift of Luke, Han, Leia in the OT.  I know some are not the best sculpts but yet they would still be "essential" to my collection.  Maybe I could toss out Luke Bacta and Luke Medical Frigate.  I would have to keep from the prequels Anakin, Padme, and Kenobi from the Arena.  The most rescent versions that is.  Even though Jango Fett is purple I would have to keep him.  Fett of course from the VOTC or recent Evolutions. 

I can't narrow it down.  Sorry!

Great topic but I have to agree with DB. However I can say it would consist of 100% OT characters...

I don't think I could chose either.  I got 20 or so in and realized 100 would never do.

Nice Scott. Fascinating to see your list encompassing both trilogies and a little Clone Wars too.

As for everybody else...it's not that hard, is it? I mean, I've played the same game picking the top 12 from each movie, too (Y'know, because of the classic Vintage 12). Would it be easier for you to go that route because it's a more managable list, or harder because it eliminates so many characters?

Here's my dozen from ANH:

1-R2 D2
2-C 3PO
3-Luke Skywalker
4-Han Solo
5-Chewbacca
6-Princess Leia
7-Obi-Wan Kenobi
8-Darth Vader
9-Stormtrooper
10-Grand Moff Tarkin
11-Jawa
12-Tusken Raider

Lines up pretty identical to the first Kenner line except for the Tarkin/Death Squad Commando switch...so either they got it pretty much right or that early exposure warped my priorities (like Greedo is just edged out by the Sand People, and I could really go either way.)

Are we talking characters, or figures?  I think for me, picking 100 figures out of the thousand since '95 would get dicey fast.  Which R2 do you pick?  Which Chewie?  You have to have both the EB and VOTC ones.  That's what would make for an interesting list for me.

I just go with the standard "the best figure available" line and go from there. Example, VOTC Han, Leia, Tusken Raider, and Stormtrooper,  Saga2 3PO and Tarkin. EB Chewie. (VOTC has that ROTJ hairdo, after all, and I'm going for an "original" Chewie.) "Resurrgence of the Jedi BP" Luke, R2, and Old Ben. Legacy Vader. As far as the Jawas, I would personally go with the Commtech Jawa, just edging out the 30AC version.

Heck, on my 100 list there are still a few figures that haven't been made yet (I still really really want an ESB Chewie that has a sculpted on threepio pack as opposed to all the variatons of loose 3PO parts they've given us.)

I was recently thinking something along these lines, but differing in that what if I could keep only one.  (This would be the case in something like a disaster scenario where I had to abandon just about everything at a moment's notice...)  While a very difficult decision, I'd probably keep my X-Wing Luke and more for personal reasons than anything else.  As a very young lad in the early '80s watching the OT films, I liked Luke Skywalker, particularly when he was flying his X-Wing, so thats the figure I'd keep.  Contenders would be R2D2 or Yoda, again for personal reasons.

Sorry to get off topic, now to think of 100 figures ;)

I don't know, a desert island or the wife will only let you keep 100 list might be interesting...

1. Darth Vader (DuH!)
2. General Grievous
3. Asajj Ventress
4. Darth Maul
5. Luke Skywalker
6. Anakin Skywalker
7. Chewbacca
8. Princess Leia (Cinnamon buns ONLY)
9. C-3PO
10. R2-D2
11. Obi-Wan
12. Yoda
13. Plo Koon (Hey, I love that guy!)
14. Darth Krayt
15. Lumiya
