I think a more fair comparison for why it probably was unnecessary was the POTF2 figure than the original Vintage figure... The POTF2 would've sufficed me, personally. Articulation's appreciated for sure, and the removable hat, but really the POTF2 didn't sell not because the figure was bad, but because the figure was boring. So this one didn't sell likewise because it was boring, haha. The fact it was done before just made it even more pointless was all.
Most alien upgrades I'll take all day long though. And even most humans I'll take. The Rancor Keeper though, he was really on my "Never care to see again" list. There are many PT figures in that list now too, haha.
