Favorite Figure(s) In Your Collection
« on: December 11, 2003, 04:39 PM »
I was sure what forum this went best in, since it covers different lines...but if this is wrong, I'm sorry, and feel free to move this :).  I was just curious what your favorite figure, or figures, are in your collection.  You can answer this however you want...favorite figure of all time, pick one or a few from each "line", anything.  I guess I am thinking Star Wars figures mostly, but if anyone wants to include a different line...that's fine too!  Whether it is because of nostalgia, a great search, your favorite character, or just an amazing figure....list your favorites here :).

Vintage: Han Solo - Trenchcoat, Luke Skywalker - Jedi (these were my two favorite figures as a kid, and the two most wanted for me personally.  I can still remember exactly where I found them and when I bought them :P)

POTF2:  Commtech Han Solo, Commtech R2, Commtech Stormie, Gold "Shiny" C-3PO (The Han was the first figure I bought when I got "back" into collecting around the time of Episode I.  The R2 and 3PO, CTC Stormie, I just like, and 3PO is probably the best one I own still at this point.

POTJ: Bespin Capture Han Solo (not only because Han and Chewie are my favorites, but because my wife went looking for this figure and gave it to me for Christmas the year it was out...has a special place to me.....a LOT of great figures from this line though....300th Fett, Scout Trooper, Dagobah Vader, Mechanic Chewie, Plo Koon, Bacta Luke, etc.)

Episode I: First Release Obi-Wan Kenobi (this was in the first "batch" of figures I bought when I first got back into collecting....just to see what figures were like at this stage....I missed the "buff" stage of POTF2, and started off with Obi, Qui Gon, Maul, 3PO, Yoda, and Anakin...as well as CTC Han and Luke)

Saga:  Not sure if there is a clear-cut favorite, several great figures...and it looks like my favorites from this "line" are yet to come in 2004.  Several that I really like: Bespin Luke, Hoth Han, Cloud City Chewie, Jedi Master Yoda, Yoda w/Chian, Ephant Mon, Coleman Trebor, Jango KE, Jedi Council Screen Scenes, and many others I am forgetting.  Like I said, best is yet to come I think in 2004.

Clone Wars: Don't have much of this, but will definitely pick up a couple (or more) of those SA Clones if I find them.  From the pictures I have seen this might be one of, if not the, best Star Wars figure made.  I also quite enjoy the ARC Trooper from this line.

Non 3 3/4" Favorites:  I really enjoy both the Unleashed and Playskool lines.  I have only the OT sets from Playskool, and hope these get revisited in the future.  The Unleashed line is amazing IMO, and I so far own Han, Luke, Yoda, and the Fetts.  Those are my favorites, in that order I think.

Non-Star Wars (if any):  I don't collect much else, just a few here and there (favorite characters)...so from what I have, I would have to say my Rohan Armor Legolas, and my Marvel Legends Beast.
