This POTF2 figure could do for an update to SA but the likeness and aesthetics of the modern figure is actually quite decent.  Good to be back :-*

Awesome, good to have you back!  ;D

Yeah, another one that definitely needs an update. Hasbro did  such a good job on 'palace' Klaatu, they can't just let this one go by unnoticed.

IIRC, the vintage one came in some sort of multipack before the carded version.

I personally would much rather have some of the other goons from the Barge before this guy gets redone again but I won't hold my nose at a new one either.  While they are at it they can do another Barada as well I guess

Looking at some of the recent Skiff Guards and Jabba's henchmen, yeah, this Klaatu is due for an update.  The POTF2 figure has to date back to what, 1998?  I agree that I'd like to see some new, previously unmade goons first.  But this figure could stand to be updated.  But I think those big, blousy pants might present a challenge for knee articulation.

And it's great to have Collect All 92 back, Scott!!!
