I hated the Bespin Guards as a kid... They were boring, and I still think they're just sorta "meh" to me. The vintage figures don't even cost much, so that's a nice thing I guess.
Ironically though, the vintage figure is one of the finer sculpts in the original line, capturing the piping detail fairly nicely, and all the little details of the costume in general. Plus, how obscure is it that Kenner did two distinct Bespin Guards, out of allt he army builder characters in the original trilogy? That's just crazy.
Hasbro's Bespin Guards have gone from pretty ******, to pretty detailed but not accurate (what the hell is that POTJ guard actually based on? Is there any photo of a guard with his jacket open like that?), to accurate but absurdly tall.
I like the modern figure, except the height. The hat fits certain figures better than others. The guy it came with though, it doesn't fit. I hate that too, and wound up giving him a POTJ figure's hat just so his cap wouldn't fly off.
I love the sculpt, the articulation, etc. The details are nice. However, I dislike the way they did the holsters, and his height is really gooney tall. Hasbro really went overboard on this guy and he looks like a giant. He's not easy to "shorten" either, like a couple other overly tall figures have been. I'd like to see them re-use most of this figure's sculpt, but shorten his legs a bit at least.
And obviously 2 clearly dupicated headsculpts of the vintage characters wouldn't hurt either. I want the guy with the big stache the most, but it'd be nice to also get a generic white guy version as well.
I dig the alien figure that came in the EU wave the most though. I had no idea he was actually in the movie somewhere but cut. He's so Star Trek, but I love it.
