It's so funny - VTSC Greedo was so well done, that I didn't realize he had anke joints until two years after I bought him! The ankle joints are very well hidden.

Ha! Greedo here surprised me, I figured we would get Boba Fett as #13...

But I did get Greedo with the other aliens in the Sears Cantina Set, so I guess this is more accurate "chronologically." He was definitely in the B-Class of figures I would play with (and lower as we progressed through the movies and got to the well-done aliens from ROTJ)

Never noticed as a kid how inaccurate his costume was, either. When we got the POTF2 version, it was easy to admire the authenticity, though now his pinhead and washed out colors make him another oddball from that time.

I like the Saga/Cantina Bar Set Greedo, but I've gotta admit it's just because I prefer the sculpted vest to the hairy thing the VTSC version has. Of course you can put them together to get the best of both worlds, and maybe Hasbro will release it like that someday, but stricktly speaking I go with Saga/Commtech/OTC. Plus, you gotta love the blast wound.
I live my life with no regrets...by taking absolutely no risks.

Just going chronologically...Fett isn't until #21 ;)

I like the Commtech etc version of Greedo fine but the colors all seem a little too washed out or pale. 



The VTSC version nailed Greedo color and articulation wise, its just that damn vest

It is a bit puffy/fuzzy.  Thinner/flatter material would've been better.  It looks like it has a fuzz to it, like suede/leather does, but that's more like a fleece they used on the VTSC figure.

I customized up my own Greedo vest out of a Shamwow.  It looks so much better than the VTSC vest, and it's 50% more absorbent, too, which is handy if I have any accidental spills in the collection room.  Highly recommended.

Or another rowdy incident in the Cantina!!!!111  Hahahahahaha!  Yeah!  :D

I have a shamwow (yes, seriously), and I think you picked an excellent product for your figure's vest.  Better than Gorilla chest.

Wait - are you saying you customized a Shamwow Greedo vest for your figure or for yourself?  Or both?  I'd love to see some pics of you in your Greedo costume with the Shamwow Vest!

I didn't know about Greedo's blaster wound under the OTC one I have. Thanks for the Easter Egg, Jay!

Are you so sure you prefer that?  After this awesome remix, I doubt you're so solid on that opinion.

Yeah, both.  I started with the one for my own personal Greedo vest for everyday wear and then I made the little one with the leftover scraps.  Worked out great.

Have you ever wore your Greedo vest out in the rain?
